This WILL be a flop, I can't see many people spending extra on a pointless add-on with rubbish games. Unless Sony do something radical with Move tomorrow then it looks like PC Gaming will be resurrected...

£100 wouldn’t be so bad if the games shown weren’t so turd. Hopefully there might be some gems before release.

very rarely do exchange rates come in to console/addon prices etc...

150 in the states usually translates to 150 in europe.

I reckon it will be around £129.99 for the British Isles then


If it was bundled with the 360 Slim for 200 squid then I'd consider

I'm thinking that MS maybe have not released a price yet as they want to see the feedback (Backlash?) from the E3 brief. If they have any sense, they will sell this kit for sub £100, becuase the launch games are NOT for the guys who already own the system.

And I can't see it taking in too many new customers.

Um you mgiht want to change this... It's £199.99 for the new XBOX 360 not the Kinect.. Looks like the Kinect will prob settle for £99.99 here if not a little lower...More than likely with one game bundled I reckon.

Hohoho. That Play price sounds very much like a ME FIRST! ME FIRST! effort.

They waited for the Kinetic announcement and stuck a healthy pre order price on there (as in "f**k it, if they charge double what the yanks get then we can comfortably start out with that as an estimate").

It'll probably end up £130 or thereabouts in the UK, then when they sell f**k all units due to a TERRIBLE "Wii too" opening line up they'll reduce it to around £100 and with the first crop of decent third party games on the horizon it'll start selling to more hardened gamers.

A decent bundle with the new slim xbox for about £250 would sell a frankly f**king ridiculous amount of units.
