A good significant cut. But whats the point if theres going to be a next ven next year?
The Kinect's novelty wore off after about an hour and the limited catalogue of games is what discourages it's purchase, not the price. I can't see this having any great effect on sales. @Nicoletoledo maybe it's a sign of things to come. Maybe the new xbox will support the Kinect. Or maybe they're just trying to get rid of inventory.
If I decide to buy it, it wouldn't be because of gaming. The Kinect can be modded to do many cool things. Such as motion capture for animating character rigs.
"You can't just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to
them. By the time you get it built, they'll want something new."
This is one of the few pieces of gaming hardware that I have zero desire in owning. Even the gimmicky Wii had some solid titles. The only decent non-party kinect game is Child of Eden which I happily played with a regular controller. A price cut isnt going to change anything for gamers, and will only draw in more of the family buyers. Good for MS, irrelevant for the hardcore crowd.
