Microsoft's own shop says Kinect is $149

Supports US retailers' claims.

Microsoft has popped Xbox 360 Kinect on its own online store priced $149.

This despite spokesperson Aaron Greenberg's repeated assertions that the $149 price tag put forward by US retailers is "purely speculative".

The Microsoft store listing (thanks VG247) is for pre-orders and also tells us that you get the Kinect sensor, power cable, manual and a Wi-Fi extension cable in the box.

The page also has a sense of humour, noting that in order to use Kinect you will need an Xbox 360 console, six feet of space between you and your TV, and you! Ha ha! And $149.

Check out our Xbox 360 Kinect hands-on and Digital Foundry's analysis of the technology from E3 last week.
