A standalone Kinect sensor for Xbox One will hit retail for $150 on October 7, Microsoft announced this morning. The solo Kinect sensor comes with a copy of Dance Central Spotlight.
In May, Microsoft announced that it would sell Xbox One consoles without the Kinect for $400, a $100 drop in price. Dance Central Spotlight comes from Harmonix, a studio whose games largely rely on Kinect – when news of the dis-Kinected Xbox One unit went live, Harmonix shared its gut reactions on Twitter, along with an official statement re-establishing its commitment to Kinect games such as Fantasia: Music Evolved.
A month after launching the Kinect-less console in June, Xbox One sales doubled in the US, Microsoft reported.
