Microsoft has confirmed pricing for the arm-flailing body-sensing Kinect system. Xbox users will pay £130 for the motion-controlled sensor that allows them to play games without a controller.
£130 gets you a Kinect Sensor to plug into your current Xbox 360, and one game, Kinect Adventures. You can buy the same kit with a new Xbox 360 Slim for £250. Forthcoming arm-wavey games such as Kinect Sports, Kinect Joy Ride and Kinectimals will cost £40 each.
While we wait for a chance to flap our arms in front of our Xboxes, we can get in a flap over Kinect's pricing. Predictably, we pay a premium for knowing how to spell "through" properly: the US price is $150, which is about £100.
