Doubt it.  They could just be place-holders, for now.

Good thing they made it look like you won't be missing out on anything good if you don't get one. That was very consumer friendly of them.

pretty sure those are placeholders and they're wiating to see what Sony does with Move pricing, hence no price announcement today

I can't imagine them not announcing the price over 2 big conferences if it was a decent price.

Another reason to not buy it. Not that there wasn't enough reasons already.

Seriously duder?  I mean seriously?  You are gonna rush to Gamestop's website and say they know the price?  No.  Just no.  This is the pricing scheme that was SPECULATED on last week by some dude in a suit in new york.  Like the guys said last night, MS is probably going to wait to see how much the whole PS Move thing will cost and what they can do to undercut that.  With the Kinect, you dont need extra controllers for more people so the price will be higher than a PS move controller.  BUt a peripheral at $150?  I highly doubt that.  It gets me thinking Sega CD and Sega 32x.  And people please, dont rush to Gamestop for pricing, you know they just go off what they heard so that they have something to charge so they can get preorders for that shit started.  These motherfuckers live on preorders.

After what Microsoft showed at the press conference there's no way I'm getting a Kinect anytime soon, no matter the price.

Really, Kinect Adventures is a full price game on top of a rip-off price for Kinect itself? My interest in this keeps on falling.

I'll be interested to see if the 'Arcade' still has no HD, or if they put in the 250 shown in the promo video on the dashboard, and maybe pop a 500 in the elite. 
Speaking of that video, I wonder if built in wifi will be in both models, or if it'll still be a plug in adaptor dongle that can be bought.  
 
Getting a bit off track, but for 150.00, got to hope for a bundled game.

If true, Pachter was $100 out on a $150 price tag.  Impressive.

Wouldn't be surprised if it ends up there... But this isn't an official price yet.

Really 70 dollars with a game? Are you high, It has multiple cameras that detect your position and movement with depth in real time. Technology wise it is pretty advanced, surprisingly so.  69.99 for the games is a little much though, at least games that only work with Kinect. 
 
By the logic being put forward in this post, no add on could ever or should ever be above 100 dollars. If they figured out how to harness a flux capacitor in the confines of your chosen consoles, people would  be crying to their heavens that it is a rip off and that you are going to take a stand and not buy the overpriced add on.

Two entire cameras... The technology is astounding! No wonder this rocket space technology is marked at such a high price.
