Are you like me and sure you want a Microsoft Kinect but not entirely sure why? On the surface, the ability to control games with your entire body seems pretty amazing. In practice, I’m not a hundred percent sure I will ever actually do it.
Purchasing or not, it looks like we at least have some info about pricing for the Kinect, not from Microsoft who don’t seem ready to reveal the actual pricing details, but instead from Walmart who have already put the new toy up at their website for pre-order , along with some deals on a Game and Gift card.
For $199.99, consumers can pre-order the Kinect itself along with one of the device’s launch titles, including Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One, Dance Central, Joy Ride, Kinectimals, Kinect Sports and Kinect Adventures. You can also grab another game from this list for an additional $60 (or $50 for Harry Potter). The bundle also includes a $30 Walmart eGift Card.
Now that we at least have some idea of the price of the thing does that mean I’m swayed one way or the other in my decision to purchase. Not really. Still don’t know if it’s worth it. Guess I’ll just have to get one and see for sure.
