Kinect gets permanent 27% price drop

Microsoft announced today that they are officially lowering the price of their successful camera peripheral for the Xbox 360, Kinect.

The announcement came today via the Major Nelson blog in which it was revealed that the camera will be dropping from $149.99 to $109.99, a 27% decrease, and will still be packaged with Kinect Adventures.

It was not explicitly stated whether this drop goes into effect immediately, however some sites like Amazon have already registered the change. 

So if you've been on the fence, maybe it's time to go pick up a Kinect and the cheap-as-dirt Child of Eden. Because it'll blow your mind.

    CoE is one of the all-time great video games (without a Kinect). I can't imagine how mind-blowing it'll be with motion control. Plus, NEW PANZER DRAGOON!

    Pretty sure it wouldn't be worth the 100+ bucks you'd pay to play it with motion control. And then what else would you play? there's no guarantee the new panzer dragoon won't turn out to be like that God-awful mech game they release a couple months ago.

    People love to bitch about the Vita having no games and they attribute lack of sales to this. The Kinect has been out for almost two fucking years and they only have a handful of worthwhile games yet the sales were astronomical. This type of nonsense (along with studios closing every month it seems) seriously makes me think I should find a less frustrating hobby.

    Good luck with that, you can find cases of that kind of situation in pretty much anything. Movies? You have genuinely great movies like Serenity not even earning it's production cost, while steaming pieces of shit like the transformer movies sit at the top 20 highest grossing films of all time. Music? same thing, genuinely inovating, different, or simply talented artists and bands like florence and the machine never seem to really hit a stride. While vapid, talentless corporate and auto-tuned hacks like Justin Bieber just keep rising and rising. What I'm trying to say is, it's not the videogame industry, mate. It's humanity in general.
