I think £80 would be reasonable for this. It needs to be less than £100 if it's going to sell.

Needs to be a LOT less than £100. Simply being of a comparable price to Move isn't good enough.

£100 would be too much...but will wait to see if that's bundled with anything or if that's on its own

Your right about it not only being the price. Even if it was comparable with Move on price am I right in thinking that the release of Kinect is a month or two after Move comes out.

It's going to look overpriced and people spending for Christmas may already have plumped for Move.

Thankfully this whole putting effort into gaming by moving round is passing me by. Thumbs and trigger finger are the maximum amount of effort that should be required for gaming. Maybe the feet if I can be arsed getting the steering wheel and peddles out for a racing game :)

Move will be a bigger winner with the all round price tag, £70 for Move and Sub controller.

Motion control should never be used to replace the pad for hardcore games. Simple as.

Used in to complement it, though, THAT's where it's at.

I agree a £70/£80 price point would be more appealing and more price friendly as well.

The one saving grace is that you just need 1 Kinect which allows up to 4 people to play at the same time and I think this is what MS are focussing on, friendly casual family Fun.

Im not going to believe any price until MS announce it themselves though, until that point its all just rumour and specualtion.

What if you require more than one, as I do? If Kinect comes out at £100, it'll be fine as you'll only ever need that one unit to engage in multiplayer games.

£100 - no chance. $150 usually reverts to £150 in rip off Britain, but I think Blockbusters £130 would be closer to the truth.

To be honest knowing MS i think it will be over £100 and even at that price it will sell reasonably well at first but 12 months after release you'll find alot of kinects gathering dust in most users home.

I'm wondering whether people will have to shell out for this Move thing if they want to play online. Surely you'll get owned if you're still using the sixaxis?

And what exactly is a "hardcore" game? Surely any game can be seen as "hardcore" if you spend enough time playing it?
