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.
