Still one of the few who hasn’t yet jumped onto the Kinect bandwagon? If so, the time you may have been waiting for is here (or will be soon if you’re outside of the US). According to Major Nelson, Xbox LIVE’s Director of Programming, the Kinect’s price has been permanently lowered in the US, and will be lowering in other parts of the world soon:
Today we are announcing a new price for Kinect. The new permanently reduced price will be US $109.99 in US. There will be also a permanently reduced price in North America, Latin America and Asia Pacific regions where Kinect is sold. Additionally, on October 4, the Kinect sensor will be available for a permanently reduced price in Australia and New Zealand.
The final retail price will vary in each region based on the currency and other variables
There are no price drop plans for EMEA and Japan.
