Gamestop REALLY Pushing Kinect Preorders at $150

Stop us if you’ve heard this one already: Kinect will sell for $150.  Though retailers have been listing it as such all weekend, Microsoft has yet to announced the final price.  As part of Gamestop’s Summer Sizzlers promotion, they have (for the second time now) listed Kinect for $149.99.  The promotion is meant to sell pre-orders of the games that debuted at E3.

Granted, games like Dead Space 2 and NBA Jam still have the magical “flex” date of December 31, 2010, so this news should be taken with a grain of salt.  But if there is anything that Gamestop knows, it is to collect your money during pre-orders.  Unless there is a dramatic price change for the hardware (and for the casual Kinect games, priced at $60 each) this appears to be the most damning evidence yet.
