Microsoft Announces Permanent Kinect Price Drop

Microsoft announced today that the Kinect will be seeing a permanent price drop… in select areas. The areas affected will see the price drop to US $109.99 – an oddly specific price.

The regions that can expect to see that price are as follows: North America, Latin America, and Asia Pacific regions immediately; Australia and New Zealand on October 4. However, Europe and Japan will not see a price drop. Why? All Microsoft says is “there are no price drop plans.” Ouch.

With the lower price, will you be getting one now? Or are you just going to wait for the upcoming Kinect 2.0?
