erm... you arent reading it right. click on your first link again and this time look really closely, click on the 93 new link...

clue... the rrp should be  $149.99, another clue... "available from the sellers"  i.e. not amazon

DOH!!


Yup. Definitely sold out at its original price point at Amazon. But for anyone who wants to pay over $200 its still available.

I see. Apologies. Don't use Amazon at all really.

Not that it matters though... We all know how relevant Amazon is for videogame sales lol.

All in stock :/

Doh!

Those links are all for Kinects bundled with the console or game. However, for the stand alone at the 149.99 price point they are very hard to come by.

Now Now... this has nothing to do woth baby seals and amazon sales charts.  Its sold out at Amazon.  simple.

And why are you quoting bundles..?  I am talking about Kinect. People with a 360 arent going to buy another 360 to get kinect.

Oh... and now it sold out at Best Buy too... back order only - 2 weeks.

If you are going to persist in downplaying the sales of this you might look a bit daft next week.

Its called EyeToy: Kinetic.  release date 2005


Kinect =/= Kinetic

Im making fun with the name similarity.

playstation/gasstation

all both do is pump out old crap.

funny!

(for the ones who don't get it : sony keeps on doing remakes of games we all should have already played/fuel is very old decomposition of some sea algea organism i for got the name).

Banjo Kazzoie, Banjo Tooie, Perfect Dark say hi to old games being remade on a new console. Funny pumping out old stuff to make new money. Funny huh!

Microsoft aren't targeting it at the current userbase. They're targeting it at the Wii audience.

It's all fine and well selling the standalone unit. But if they aren't selling it in droves to NEW 360 owners, then it's kinda pointless and a waste of $500 Million. They want it to increase 360 HW. Not just sell more SW to the current base.

And if you're going to use Amazon of a measure of how well something is selling out, then you already look daft.

Once the numbers come in--and they will be huge--all will be validated. It's selling extremely well and the sales will be reflected later on on this very site.

Doesn't mean much at all to me really when they are about 1% of the market.

I will wait for the real numbers

And your thread title is screwed. "KInect". Don't type so fast next time in your hype and you might not make an obvious error.

360 fanboys think kinect is revolutionary for gaming when eyetoy already did this 7 years ago and guess what, it faded away. 

Kinect wont last a year before fading away 

Kinect owns eyetoy , Wii Rip Off oh sorry MOVE AND PS3 all together
