It seems that Microsoft views Kinect as more than a simple peripheral. The motion advanced motion sensor will apparently launch with about 17 games next month. As if that wasn't enough to generate a buzz, it will also be shown during Oprah, so all those housewives will be awed during the demonstration. MS has reportedly spent $500 million dollars in marketing Kinect, which means to expect to see a commercial or two about it. The unit will be available on November 4 for $150, a bundle pack with a 4GB Xbox 360 for $300 or the 250GB bundle for $400.
