Microsoft: All Kinect Prices Now Are Placeholders


imageWe’ve seen the $149.99 price for the Kinect Sensor everywhere, even on Microsoft’s own online store. That price no matter where you see it, is just a placeholder, according to a Microsoft employee.


“All prices now *no matter what the retail source* are placeholders. We’ve not announced. :>,” Stephen Toulouse, Director of Policy and Enforcement for Xbox Live, posted on Twitter.


Microsoft also updated their Kinect product page with a disclaimer. It reads, “official pricing has not been announced. $149.99 is an estimate only and subject to change.”
