While I personally think it is safe to say that everyone who wants a Kinect has one, Major Nelson announced this morning that that there will be permanent price drop on the motion-controlled device. The new price for the peripheral, $109.99, will be applied to “North America, Latin America and Asia Pacific regions” immediately and will occur in Australia and New Zealand on October 4th. There will be no reduction in price for Japanese stores.
While the add-on has received its fair share of criticisms, there have been a number of games worth playing on it. For instance, Dance Central, Child of Eden, The Gunstringer, Wreckateer, Double Fine Happy Action Theater, and Sesame Street Once Upon a Monster are all good games for the peripheral and worth playing. If this is the sale you need to get a Kinect, you should definitely consider picking some of these games up.
