Microsoft already announced the U.S. debut of the Kinect several months ago and just recently the company declared that UK gamers are set to receive the motion gaming peripheral on November 10th, six days after it hits the U.S. market.
The move to push an Europe debut a week after an initial U.S. release is not normal of gaming companies who often see demand outstrip supply, so this means that Microsoft boosted its production and the company is preparing for the holiday shopping season.
UK games aficionados will get the Kinect for 150 Euros which is just under US$200. In U.S., gamers can get Kinect controller for $150, which most consumers saying is too expensive. That’ price is an equivalent of an entire Wii console, and almost three times as expensive as the competing PlayStation Move controller that will be launch next month.
Kinect will also be available bundled with the new Xbox 360 Slim 4GB model for 249.99 Euros when it launches, and launch titles for Kinect include Kinect Adventures, Kinect Sports, Kinectimals, and Kinect Joy Ride.
