Kinect Price Drop

So big news today from Microsoft. Microsoft is announcing a new price for the Kinect. The new permanently reduced price will be US $109.99 in US. 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 based on the currency and other variables

There are no price drop plans for EMEA and Japan.

What does this mean? For hardware hackers and independent software developers this is awesome as it makes the Kinect more accesible. For gamers, its a big…eh. Will their new Xbox 720 have Kinect built in? Are you going to purchase a Kinect and is it even worth it with the content that’s currently available? Let us know your thoughts below.
