It's not a 4gb hard drive it's flash memory. And it's better then nothing.

The 4gb is meant ot be for storage, not for live marketplace use, if you want to do that, get the larger sku
 
150 plus a game still seems like alot, should have packed in Dance Central along side it but w/e

With a game packed in I can justify spending 150.

If it had been Dance Central packed in I'd probably go for it.  I'm disappointed that there is no 250 GB bundle with the new console.

$150, 150 euro, wanna bet £150.  Yup, UK takes it in the rear once again - and you know all the promotion at launch will be "buy now before the VAT goes up".

You can fit a fair amount of XBLA and Rockband songs on 4gb.  It isn't enough to install a game from disc and about 250mb is more than enough for save games.

Realistically it's still the same price of a complete 2 player Move set. I think the pricing structure is fair and what was expected.

£130 in the UK seems a bit steep. Girlfriend definitely wants one, and it does look like it could be fun but I think I'm going to have to wait to see how it's received before I decide whether we get one or not.

I'll get the kinect, but I'm definitely getting the 250gb console instead of the new arcade...I need storage!

The price point is good, especially with the pack in game. 
 
Another thing to note, the first party Kinect titles, Kinectimals, Joy Ride, and Kinect Sports, are priced at $49.99.

I have now lost all interest in the kinect. I shall not be giving microsoft my hard earned space bucks for a motion camera. Good day microsoft I shall purchase halo reach from you but that is all.

wow 50 bucks for those games? Even good first party games like banjo kazooie and viva pinata were only 40 bucks.

Everything in the UK seems more than a 'bit' steep :P

I'd love if there was some more choice on the pack in game, but at least having something included with the hardware makes it better than a standalone unit at 150.
