As reported earlier the price for Kinect in USA is $149.99. Prices for the system have now been revealed for other countries such as Australia.
You can say it in many different languages..and many different variants of money. Either way..you end up with one result. Expensive.
when something is priced in american dollars and shows an equal amount in euros then you know it is expensive everywhere else. Especially in australia. WOW. I guess being down under in relation to the equator means you have to be up over when it comes to buying stuff. All over the world systems like ps3 and wii are still pricey when compared to the US. It isnt just kinect, but everything even sony and nintendo products.
in Europe it's 149EUR pretty much around 193USD sc....d over again
I know there is a conversion difference and i let that slide by. doh
Very expensice indeed. It's only an accessory but then we are talking about a company that charges you $20 for a data transfer kit, $120 for a hard hard and $20 for a battery charger pack. Add in tax and you end up paying even more! It is not 32X all over again but it is nothing too far away from it either.
not getting any cheaper lol
Yep, one of the most priciest peripheral ever.
yeah.. that's a bit too pricey for my tastes.. maybe if they sell enough the price will come down so NORMAL people can get one.
Microsoft's Kinect is a little too rich for my blood, but will pick one up when the timing is right.
if it's anywhere below 100 bucks then yea i'll pick it up
And if Kinect have good games, probably I will get it.
In my country, it's like 1.500.000 IDR
usd would be $149.99
when did everybody get poor all of a sudden? this isn't much more than 2 new games. $150 is suddenly expensive but paying $400-$600usd for a movie player wasn't?
So Kinect will most likely end up like the PS3 in terms of market failure? Good to know
LOL! Failure. Funny.
the things xbox did not have at launch: built in wifi hdmi expensive hardrive(memory cards lol) hd dvd failure no slot loading disc drive shall i go on........
pointless discussion, we get it it's 150, the moves if you buy four of them is more and blah blah blah different combinations. better topic: does anyone else plan on buying vanquish?
Agreed!! So sick of these stupid discussions about pricing. Who cares, right? All of this motion control crap is overpriced. Move and kinect both. Get which ever one you want or neither. Please stop trying to predict how these things will sell. It's not important. Just enjoy the games and all will be well! Not getting vanquish by the way. Something about that game just seems... off :( Bubble for you, sir =)
even if something seems off i would rather send a message to game companies that i still want great long single player games and not just multiplayer games with tacked on short campaigns.
