Microsoft Kinect UK Release Date Leaked by Stores

The Xbox 360 motion controller has been given a UK release date – but this announcement hasn’t come from Microsoft.

It seems that HMV, The Hut and couldn’t wait to tell the world that Kinect will be hitting these shores on November 19th.

These online retailers are offering the Kinect for pre-order and let slip that it will be available just in time for gamer’s to add to their lists to Santa.

As you Gadgety News readers will already be aware; the new wave your arms and jump around controller got an official UK pricing last week and partners the new Xbox 360 Slim console – the first batches of which quickly sold out.

If you agree with the general feeling that £130 is a bit steep for the add-on (£250 bundled with a new Xbox 360 S) then, if you can, wait til after crimbo as a number of industry experts are predicting that the Kinect will come down to a sub £100 price point 😉

I reckon if I was after a new Xbox and Kinect I’d go for the silver HALO console and then wait til the January sales to buy Kinect.
