GameStop lists Kinect for $149.99 Game retailer GameStop is listing Microsoft's Kinect for Xbox 360 peripheral for $149.99. The Kinect was dated for a November 4, 2010 release date today at the Microsoft E3 Press Conference, but Microsoft said it will not set an official price for the product at E3 this year. The GameStop website allows users to pre-order the item now, limited to one per household.
"Official pricing has not been announced by the publisher. This is an estimate only and subject to change," the product page reads. "If the price decreases between the time you place your preorder and the release date, you'll receive the lowest price."

The site also lists Xbox 360 bundles that include the Kinect. A bundle with an Arcade console and Kinect is $299.99 and an Elite console with Kinect is $399.99, but there is no sign of the slim Xbox 360 on the site yet.

Also news of a second slim Xbox 360 model emerged later in the day. The second console which is currently in the works will cost $199.99 and will replace the Arcade unit, while along with the Elite console, is to be discontinued.
