For those who want high-capacity Kinecting

Gamers who are excited about Kinect but want a bit more storage on their Xbox 360 than the previously announced 4 GB hardware bundle, can rest easy as Microsoft has now announced a similar bundle that comes with a 250 GB Xbox 360.

The bigger bundle will have everything the 4 GB one does: the Xbox 360 system, the Kinect motion controller, and the Kinect launch title Kinect Adventures. The only difference is the hard drive inside the system.

The high-capacity bundle will sell for $399, just $100 more than the 4 GB version. That's pretty amazing considering that just a little while ago, Microsoft was selling 20 GB hard drives for around $100.

The question remains whether or not Kinect will catch on. For users who already have an Xbox 360, the Kinect camera sells by itself for $150. That's the most expensive mass-market video game peripheral that we've seen for a long time. Additionally, despite a lot of lofty promises made last year, the only Kinect titles that have been revealed are casual mini-games and party games.

We'll see what happens when Kinect launches in November. You can pre-order it already on Amazon today.
