Microsoft today announced a permanent price drop on Kinect sensor for Xbox. The new reduced price will be $109.99 in US. There will be also a permanently reduced price in North America, Latin America and Asia Pacific regions where Kinect is sold. On October 4, the Kinect sensor will be available for a permanently reduced price in Australia and New Zealand.
Microsoft also specifically mentioned that there will be no price drops in EMEA and Japan regions. With the sales of the whole gaming industry in general is falling down, price drops of this kind should boost sales to some level.
