Kinect buyers will be set back $150, when the motion-sensing Xbox 360 controllers goes on sale Nov. 4.
New York — Microsoft says its Kinect motion-sensing game controller will cost $150 when it goes on sale Nov. 4.
The Kinect system recognizes users' gestures and voices, so you can control on-screen characters in racing, action and sports games simply by speaking or moving your body. It will come packaged with a game, "Kinect Adventures."
Microsoft Corp. said Tuesday it will also start selling an entry-level Xbox 360 game console in August. The $200 unit will have a four-gigabyte hard drive. It's $100 less than the Xbox with much more storage, 250 gigabytes.
The entry-level console, plus Kinect and the game, will also be available as a bundle for $300.
