Business Insider reports Microsoft may sell as much as three million Kinect units in Q4 2010:
Although EEDAR's Jesse Divnich believes the $149 price tag is "appropriate," Lazard Capital Markets' Colin Sebastian says that $99 would have been the "sweet spot." Nevertheless, Sebastian does still anticipate the Kinect doing well on the market.
In fact, he believes Microsoft's already well into the manufacturing process.
"We believe that Kinect units are already in production and should be available in adequate quantities for the November launch. We continue to expect that roughly three million units of Kinect will be sold worldwide in 4Q," he said. "Microsoft will also begin selling a stand-alone 4GB Xbox 360 in early August for $199, which should help the platform sustain improved sales momentum. Over time, we also anticipate that motion sensors will show up in connected TVs, living room PCs, set-top boxes and other consumer devices."
