Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg has confirmed that Kinect will indeed be the long-rumored $150 price when it is released this November.
The budget edition of the new version of the Xbox 360 will be released on August 3 for $199.99 and come with some differences beyond the storage space size.

182w ago - Recently we revealed a few new PS3 models uncovered through the FCC, and today CVG.com (linked above) reports that Sony plans to launch new PlayStation 3 SKUs that will include a 500GB HDD and come bundled with the Move Motion Controller.
The new PlayStation 3 bundles are also reported to include faster internal Wi-Fi cards, specifically 802.11n versus 802.11 b/g.
To quote: "Sony plans to release 500GB and 250GB versions of its slimline powerhouse bundled with the new motion controller later this year, according to our industry source in Los Angeles.
We were also told that the new PS3s will come with new faster internal Wi-Fi cards (802.11n, for those of you who know what that means). Current PS3s come with the slower 802.11 b/g standard Wi-Fi.
Basically, that means new PS3's connection to PSN and the Internet will be faster if you have an 802.11n-compatible router."

184w ago - A tipster on PlayStationLifeStyle.net (linked above) has shared pictures of a new and yet-unannounced PS3 Slim 250GB bundle which includes an HDMI cable and LittleBigPlanet Game Of The Year 'Greatest Hits' Edition for only $349.99!
Now consumers won't have to fork over more cash for a high-definition cable in order to enjoy 1080p PlayStation 3 games and Blu-ray movies, providing of course that the 6-foot HDMI cable included is long enough to suit your needs.
To quote: "As if the 250GB PS3 SKU wasn't already a great value, being only $50 more than the 120GB SKU and featuring double the HDD capacity. Now, the 250 SKU will be packed with a 6-foot HDMI cable and the Greatest Hits Game of the Year Edition of LittleBigPlanet, which is still one of the most highly-regarded titles of this generation. Here's the kicker: it's still only $349.99!
Don't believe this amazing value? We didn't either, but a PSLS faithful tipster with retail experience sent us the pictures below for confirmation!"
185w ago - Another PlayStation 3 bundle has surfaced, this time being an MLB 10 Limited Edition PS3 Slim 250GB bundle uncovered by JoyStiq at Target.
The bundle price is $349.99 and currently the status is pre-order, with shipping available in 2-4 weeks.
To quote: "Two weeks ago, we published reports from a Target employee who claimed an MLB 10-branded 250GB PS3 Slim bundle had appeared on their store's list of new releases.
Recently, another piece of evidence surfaced which adds further credibility to the story: Target's online store recently added the MLB 10 bundle to its virtual shelves.
The online listing is scant on details - it only mentions that the bundle comes with the console and a copy of the game. The tipster from two weeks ago reported a release date of June 13, and a price of $349.99 for the package."
