Walmart Offering $US199 Kinect Bundle, Selling Kinect Games For $US60

We've seen enough pricing leaks to pretty much be sure that Microsoft's Kinect will be priced at $US150. But did you know those games are gonna sell for $US60, and none will come bundled with the hardware? Hoo ee.

Yes, this new Walmart preorder bundle deal for the Kinect hardware, one game of your choice and a $US30 online-only gift card for $US199 also shows games such as Kinect Adventures and Joyride listing for a whopping $US60, which is about twice as much as we expected.

Microsoft, let's be real here. Kinect looks great, but if you're expecting people to drop $US210 for the hardware and a single game, you're not gonna be pleased with the results. At the very least, Kinect Sports should be bundled with the hardware, not cost a whopping $US60 extra. I mean, come on.

But I guess if you're really sold on Kinect, this Walmart bundle is a good deal, allowing you to essentially get the hardware and two games for $US230. But yeesh, $US230? That's borderline insane. [Wal-Mart via Ars Technica]

Update: The listing says it "comes with a Kinect game". What Kinect game isn't clear, but we'll update when we know.
