MS prices up Xbox 360 Kinect console combo
An Xbox 360 250GB bundled with a Kinect sensor and a Kinect Adventures game pack will set you back £300.
It's $399 in the US, which is, give or take a pound or three, exactly equivalent to the VAT-less UK price.
MS has already announced a bundle pairing the Kinect kit with its 4GB Xbox 360.
Existing Xbox 360 owners can buy the Kinect sensor / Kinect Adventures bundle for £130. Kinect will also be bundled with the upcoming 4GB Xbox 360 for £250. Games cost £40.

Why do they change names?
Project Natal sounded quite cool. Kinect sounds cack.
Nintendo Revolution also sounded cool. Wii sounds corny.
I reckon it will get renamed 'Kinell' when people see the price.
Personally I think we will be getting Move, like the look of Sorcery and of course KZ3.
I check all the gaming even though we have a PS3.
<---- Why not? Both MS and Sony hate them!
Kinect looks like a fantastic toy, but at £130 I can't see many people buying one. It needs to be at most £75 for people to take an interest, I reckon.
....going to buy one.
