Kinect for $150?

Could be a placeholder price from Gamestop, but I believe it because this is so typical of Microsoft.

Yes, Microsoft, because the Wii Fit crowd wants to pay:

$299 for an Xbox Slim
$149 for Kinect
$59 for Ubisoft's Fitness Game
$49/yr for Xbox Live

Note: Combined sales totals for Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus are a hair over 35 million units-- Just about 5 million shy of TOTAL XBOX 360s SOLD WORLDWIDE.

It's possible that Microsoft wanted to make this thing much cheaper than that... but you know those pesky shareholders: Always demanding profitable business models and other such nonsense. Don't worry Microsoft: Kinect wouldn't be able to actually do the job you want it to even if it were free.
