As noted earlier yesterday, Microsoft has remained mum on pricing details for its hands-free controller, Kinect, despite its recent E3 re-unveil. Retailers, on the other hand, haven't shared in the silence, almost universally pegging the device for pre-order at $149. Some shops have even spitballed bundle prices well in advance of Microsoft's official word. But here's an interesting, and possibly meaningful, weave in the ongoing "What will Kinect cost?" tapestry: Microsoft's own store has listed the device at $149, and interestingly, will allow pre-orders starting on November 4, 2010.
As Joystiq notes, this shouldn't necessarily be taken as a confirmation of price. It's definitely possible that one of the behemoth heads on the Microsoft hydra isn't talking to the other. But I'm going to guess that the shared body does indeed house details we're not privy to just yet, and just maybe this was an accidental listing in advance of an impending announcement. We'll see, eh?
