Walmart Is Making Sure You're Kinect-ed

By Joel Taveras

July 13, 2010

Walmart is known to slash prices like it’s no one’s business especially when it comes to gaming.While Microsoft has yet to confirm the price on their upcoming Kinect motion control, Walmart is wasting no time in getting some pre-order sales going for the peripheral with an oh so sweet pre-order bundle. Starting right now you can go slap down $199  to ensure that you too can look like an idiot in your own home on day one of launch. Hit the jump to see what’s included in the bundle.

What Walmart is offering is the following: Obviously the Kinect,  your choose of any $60 launch title, and they throw in a $30 eGift card. If you have even the thought about picking up Kinect, it’s a pretty sweet deal. I’ll be all over this like a virgin at a comic book convention. I just hope that Dance Central is one of the launch titles so I can do the running man dance all over my house.

Now while there’s no doubt that this IS a damn good deal, it does bring up some questions. Are the experts and analysts wrong about Kinect’s presumed $150 price tag? I mean I know Walmart is a bad ass discouting machine but are they about to take a $40 hit on every bundle sold? Highly Unlikely. We’ll obviously watching this one closely as well as looking for any other bundles and offers on Kinect.

If any of you readers stumble upon any crazy prices, let us know and we’ll give you credit for the find!
