Wal-Mart Offers Kinect Bundle For $199

US retail giant Wal-Mart has announced details of the first bundle containing Microsoft's Kinect motion-sensing games peripheral for the Xbox 360 console, VG247 has reported.

Microsoft Kinect is designed to allow players to use their bodies as game controllers by the means of a motion-sensing camera.

The hardware and software bundle, which will come with a price tag of $199, consists of the Kinect kit, one Kinect-compatible game, and a $30 e-gift card from Wal-Mart. Microsoft Kinect is is expected to sell for $149 when it goes on sale on its own in November.

Wal-Mart said users will be able to choose from a range of games titles including Kinect Sports, Kinect Adventure, Dance Central, Kinectimals, Kinect Joy Ride and Harry Potter: Deadly Hallows.

Consumers can also add an extra game to their Kinect bundle for an extra $59, bringing the total price to $258.

Walmart's decision to advertise the Kinect bundle come as a surprise to some observers, as Microsoft has yet to announce the official pricing.
