Wal-Mart offering Kinect bundle for $200

Wal-Mart offering Kinect bundle for $200 Wal-Mart has started pre-orders on a new Microsoft Kinect bundle today, adding more question marks to the still unofficial price tag on the system.
Priced at $200, consumers get the Kinect system, a $30 Wal-Mart eGift Card, and one of the launch titles.

Those titles (Sports is pictured) are Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One, Dance Central, Joy Ride, Kinectimals, Kinect Sports and Kinect Adventures.

You can also add an additional game for $50-60 if you want to get more for your new bundle.

The Microsoft Store has the system priced at $150, but with a note that price is still subject to change. GameStop and Amazon have similar pricing, and similar notices.

Wal-Mart's latest deal is the most cost-effective, especially given the discount off the game and the addition of the gift card, but we will see if the price sticks when the device launches in early November.

Damn that's as much as a Wii console itself...

Yeah it's spendy and everything I hate about the Wii. Can't we just be happy with our controllers? LOL

I'd rather just buy a standalone Xbox 360 by itself

I would rather just keep playing my PS3 as it is...and save my money for games.

"You can also add an additional game for $50-60 if you want to get more for your new bundle."

-If $60 is a bargain for one of these games, I don't think they will be selling a lot of them...then again, I wouldn't pay $5 for all of them...even if they fixed the controls to work with a proper controller.

Yep, and the wii console also comes with WiiSports, just like how this bundle comes with Kinetic Sports.
