Xbox LIVE’s Larry Hryb, more commonly referred to as Major Nelson, has announced that Microsoft’s body motion peripheral Kinect has received a price cut in the US. The new price is set to be $109.99, down from the previous price of $149.99.
The Director of Programming also added:
“There will be also a permanently reduced price in North America, Latin America and Asia Pacific regions where Kinect is sold. Additionally, on October 4, the Kinect sensor will be available for a permanently reduced price in Australia and New Zealand.”
The final retail price will vary in each region due to currency exchange and other variables. Major Nelson also revealed that there are no price cut plans for Europe, the Middle East, Africa or Japan.
Globally, Kinect has sold 19 million units up to May 2012. On November 25th 2011, otherwise known as Black Friday, Microsoft sold 750,000 units in the U.S alone due to heavy price drops from most retailers.
