Microsoft Drops Price on Kinect

Microsoft Drops Price on Kinect

If the price of Kinect for Xbox, Microsoft’s motion sensing peripheral for the immensely popular video game console, was just a little too pricey for you to pick one up, that might have changed! Microsoft has implemented it’s second major price cut of the Kinect. It had originally launched at $150, but last year it was dropped to $130. Now you can snag one for only $109. I had originally thought that Microsoft would have a hard time selling the Kinect at launch, but I was proven wrong when it became the ‘fastest-selling device on record’. If it was able to do that well at a significantly higher price tag then the remaining few who haven’t already purchased one might finally be convinced to add one alongside their Xbox 360.
