Walmart Readies Kinect Bundles

While we still await official word on the pricing on Microsoft's Kinect, Walmart has started selling preorder bundles for the camera controller, packing in a game of your choice and a $30 gift card for $199.

Microsoft hasn't come right out and said it, but seeing as everyone, including Microsoft, is listing the price at around $150, that seems like the right price.

Walmart's Kinect bundle, now available for preorder, backs up the price as well. You get the $150 Kinect, your choice of a $60 launch game (I'm torn between Kinectimals, Dance Central, and hitting myself in the head with a hammer), and a $30 eGift card, which is just like a gift card, only it has more 'e' in it.

It's not a bad little deal, and the pricing seems to jibe with everything else we've seen. Once I figure out whether I am investing in Kinect or not, perhaps this is the route I will take. I could always use $30 worth of random Walmart money.

Note the deal is only going until July 23, so I might need to make up my mind rather quickly.

$299.99 for the 360 S, plus $149.99 for Kinect PLUS $59.99 for one of the games? With applicable tax here that comes out to...$540.57.

Compared to the PS3's Move (with 2 full controllers, 1 game, camera and system) costing...$540.56 (includes tax).

Or you can just go with a Wii with everything (4 full controllers, 2 games) for about...$434.53 (including tax).

Did I mention gaming was an expensive hobby?
