If correct the price is higher than estimates

When details of Project Natal first surfaced for the Xbox 360, the motion control system sounded really cool. The big caveat for many gamers thought was what the price would be. Many rumors pointed to a price tag that would be in the $50 to $70 range.

A source has told 
Edge-online that when Project Natal lands it will be at a much higher price of $149. That price tag will reportedly put it at a higher price than Sony's Move tech that will sell with a game for under $100. 

The source also told the publication that the Natal camera tech would be bundled with the Xbox 360 Arcade system for $299. Pricing outside the U.S. would depend on factors like exchange rates. That October launch date that was leaked early this month has been further clarified as being set for October 26. The sources cited by 
Edge-online say that the launch date could move a few weeks in either direction.

The camera won't be called Natal and the official name will be unveiled at E3 next month.

Too little too late really.

I like the tech but as a 40 year old adult it really doesnt appeal too much.

I wont be getting one for my 360.

I'd rather put the cash towards a whole new console where it might be built in as part of the whole unit.

We really need some new consoles rather than new add ons for the old ones.

2005/6 was a long time ago.

Natal for 360 will be much like Live was for Xbox1. Live was nice and all, but it didn't really take off till the next-gen when it was included by default and perfected...I'm sure they plan to do the same with Natal.
