Xbox Australia have finally announced local pricing for Kinect. The price for Kinect in Australia will be A$199 as a recommended retail price to stores, however your likely to find competition will reduce that price by around $20. Whilst the official release date for Kinect hasn’t been announced for Australia, it is scheduled for release on November 5th in the US.
Along with the Kinect announcement, Microsoft have confirmed the upcoming release / bundle of a new Xbox 360 S model. Designed to replace the Xbox 360 Arcade, the new model will come with just 4GB of storage. This is obviously a cost saving measure, and will be bundled with the Kinect sensor and Kinect Adventures game for A$449.
With full body play, Kinect is a unique and accessible way for everyone to enjoy controller-free fun. With more than 15 games available at launch, Aussie living rooms will become fitness rooms, dance clubs and sports stadiums.
