Microsoft has dropped the price of its Kinect motion-sensing peripheral. Company spokesperson Larry Hryb announced the permanent new price of $109.99 for the device on the Major Nelson blog. It has previously been on sale for $149.99.
According to Hryb, the new price relates to the U.S., but "there will be also a permanently reduced price in North America, Latin America and Asia Pacific regions where Kinect is sold. Additionally, on October 4, the Kinect sensor will be available for a permanently reduced price in Australia and New Zealand."
No price drop is planned for Kinect for Europe, the Middle East, Africa or Japan.
