New Xbox Thingy Will Cost $150, Better Xbox $200

The Kinect, a sensor thingy for Xbox that was not received favorably at E3, will apparently cost $150, or $300 if you buy in a bundle with a newish-betterish-Xbox 360.

The improved 360, (which came out last month in a $300 version that included a 250GB hard drive), will be quieter, have built-in wireless-n, and be available separately from the Kinect August 3rd for $200. The $200 version will have 4GB of flash storage.

Kinect price is $150; new 360 hardware coming August 3 [Ars Technica]
