Here in Brazil, stores almost force you to buy the Xbox with a Kinect... and there are lots of Kinect games for sale, more than regular games (Sony does the same with Move games)...
Microsoft is set to release a new Xbox bundle; the $299.99 pack includes a 4GB console, Kinect sensor, and copy of Nike+ Kinect Training.
A new Xbox 360 bundle will launch in time for Christmas, according to an Amazon listing.
The hardware pack includes a 4GB Xbox 360 console, a Kinect sensor, and a copy of Nike+ Kinect Training.
The bundle will retail for $299.99, and is set for release on December 4.
Nike+ Kinect Training allows users to track their health and fitness program across platforms as it works in conjunction with a free mobile app of the same name.
The fitness-focused bundle also includes a copy of Kinect Adventures.
Ironically disconected from its market base, Kinects lack of titles to or Microsoft lack of titles for the sensor does not push titles out the door
After 70 million Xbox 360/Xbox 360 S consoles sold Microsoft is right to focus on the Casual gaming people. The Hardcore and Core gamers have long since bought their Xbox. The Wii is finished so MS is trying to capture those people who want to choose between a Wii U 8Gb basic set for $299.99 with no pack in game. Or Xbox 360 S 4GB with 1 controller, The kinect sensor and 2 pack in games. The NIKE exercise game and the Kinect adventures.
MS could stand a chance at getting some more Casuals to buy kinect. Since Causal gamers are not concerned with buying the latest videogame consoles. And are content with 5 games Max.
Microsoft is trying to survive.
I have two 360s, but and zero Kinects. If I was to get Kinect, it would be Kinect 2.0 HD for Xbox 720, assuming that device would accurately function into my livingroom as Kinect does not.
One of Kinect's many weakness' is that it doesn't work in every room.
Of course, my main beef is the kind of software for Kinect isn't the kind of software I care to play at all.
