Why? Its works and its mainly the software which does it is good. Not to metion if it would be more than $56 to make, the product would have cost more to have. Look at Sony this gen in the prices on there products.

Almost everyone does this.

Do you know what Gatorade is? Fucking kool-aid with salt.

Besides, every business needs to make a profit. If they sold the thing without Kinect Adventures, it'd be like $44 in profit.

Because they are making about $100 profit on each unit and this is way to much especially considering a lot of people are not buying Kinect purely because of the pricepoint.

You would think it would be more profitable if they lowered the price. Yeah, they'd be making less money per unit, but they'd be selling a hell of a lot more. I guess they're just really confident in their $500 million budget (as they should be).

Well they were forced to. Look at the chatpad thing they have. I'm not sure if it's gone down in price or not but it cost $50 when it did, when the one for the 360 which is more convenient only cost $20. And a lot of people got it because, well, no voice mail.

The 360 one varies in price. I've seen them standalone for $30, but I've also seen one that comes with a headset for $30. Still, both chatpads overpriced in my opinion.

I'm guessing Microsoft is waiting until next year to drop the price down to $100 because everyone likes to buy shit en mass when it goes down in price.
