Igor Cipollett - head of online retailer ShopTo.net - has recently said that compared to similar offerings from Microsft's competitors Nintendo and Sony, the upcoming Kinect controller offers good value in terms of multiplayer.
"If you compare the cost of Kinect to a full set of Wii or Move controllers, you can see that Kinect will work out as the cheaper option," said Igor.
He was, however, a little less enthusiastic about whether this was the case for the single-player experience and this to say on the matter to MCV
"But for the sole, hardcore gamer, it looks a very expensive option as a substitute for a joypad. Also, the RRP may have the unfortunate effect of deterring any impulse buyers."
Bear in mind that this is the same chap who wanted to see Kinect priced at £70 back in June
