Microsoft: "Kinect Is Competitively Priced"

Marketing manager for Microsoft UK, Brett Siddons has expressed the company's believe that their upcoming motion controller, Kinect is competitively priced with Nintendo's Wii and Sony's PlayStation Move:
“The price thing itself depends on how you look at it. It’s £129.99 RRP but it comes with a game within that price – so Adventures will be packed in with the camera. If you buy it with the console which normally costs £149.99, [it's] £249.99 with the Kinect and the games – another £100 on top."

“The camera tracks six people – with two active gamers – you don’t have to buy anything else."

“I’ll let you do the maths, but when you say Nintendo Wii or PlayStation Move you buy this and this, even for a two player games. What do you need and what do [you] actually have to spend for a two player game for this device versus that device."

“You actually find that [Kinect] is very competitively priced.”
Makes a fair point. It's out in November.
