kinect 3

Each Kinect unit is costing Microsoft around $150 to manufacture according to reports emerging this evening.

Develop Online is claiming a “highly-positioned, trusted source,” has told them the cost of each unit.

The source also told Develop that the $150 expense of each Kinect unit is “a topic of concern for his company."

Develop did ask Microsoft for it's comments, however it was met with the usual "no comment on rumour or speculation" response.

We were told just before the Kinect reveal in LA last week that a premium version of the motion sensor would retail for $189.

Kinect will be released in November this year.
