Kinect for Windows Next Month

Microsoft announces that Kinect for Windows will be released on February 1, 2012, featuring new hardware and software for the motion-detection peripheral (thanks ZDNet). Here's word:

Today, we are announcing that the new Kinect for Windows hardware and accompanying software will be available on February 1st, 2012 in 12 countries (United States, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, United Kingdom), at a suggested retail price of US $249. Kinect for Windows hardware will be available, in limited quantities at first, through a variety of resellers and distributors. The price includes a one-year warranty, access to ongoing software updates for both speech and human tracking, and our continued investment in Kinect for Windows-based software advancements. Later this year, we will offer special academic pricing (planned at US $149) for Qualified Educational Users.

My prediction: People will continue to use the regular Kinect for the PC the way they have since it first came out, using "hacks." The official PC version will be shunned due to its price, and Microsoft will respond to the poor sales by claiming there is no market for it on PC and further ignore PC consumers in the future.

I love their excuse to justify the $250 price.
