After much speculation that Microsoft's Kinect motion controller would be priced at $150, Microsoft has finally given the official word that it is in fact true and throws in a free copy of the Kinect Adventures game ($49.99 Value).
That means the USB camera is priced at $100. Meanwhile, the PlayStation Move controller is $50, though it does also require the PlayStation Eye.

An Xbox 360 Slim with the Kinect packed in will be sold as a separate package for $300, but it won't include the 250 GB hard drive that other Slim units have.

Although Microsoft originally announced the motion camera as a brand new platform, its showing at this year's E3 was little more than a few overblown mini-games and a voice recognition feature that seems like more trouble than it is worth.

At $150 it is the most expensive first-party controller of this entire console lifecycle. The question is whether or not people will be willing to buy it.
