Microsoft Kinect for Xbox 360 gets UK price tag

Microsoft has confirmed pricing for the arm-flailing body-sensing Kinect system. Xbox users will pay 130 for the motion-controlled sensor that allows them to play games without a controller.

130 gets you a Kinect Sensor to plug into your current Xbox 360, and one game, Kinect Adventures. You can buy the same kit with a new Xbox 360 Slim for 250. Forthcoming arm-wavey games such as Kinect Sports, Kinect Joy Ride and Kinectimals will cost 40 each.

Microsoft’s long-awaited competitor for the Nintendo Wii was officially named in June, having previously being known as Project Natal.

While we wait for a chance to flap our arms in front of our Xboxes, we can get in a flap over Kinect’s pricing. Predictably, we pay a premium for knowing how to spell “through” properly: the US price is $150, which is about 100.
