Pre-Orders will determine the price of MS Kinect

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Pre-Orders will determine the price of MS Kinect

I can only imagine that is the main reason MS didn't announce the price.  They are trying to gauge interest based on pre-orders and if they are happy with the results they will more than likely keep it at $150.

And if they're really happy with the results, they'll jack it up to $175.



so basically ebayers are fucking everyone else out of a normal price.



I guess this is a good possibility, but what happens if preorders are the only orders that sell? Will they lower the price right away?



  Kinect! who needs video games!

^^That'd fuck the ebay vermin.



Around the Network

I Agree



MS spokesman said that he already knows the price on GT. I believe they have not anonced it to keep you more hyped and see oreorders feedback. And if preoreders will be low they will put price down a bit. Maybe they waiting for gamescon for anoncment or something.

Wait what? Set no standard price so they can see how people react to the non-existent price? I don't get this at all. You think a significant number of people are going to pre-order Kinect without knowing a firm price?

probably because it's on amazon #1 seller

there's already 76 on ebay, which is only from people who do not actually have the item, which is actually against ebay rules.

The going price for kinect AND the new console is 350. Not so much demand at the moment.
