Standalone PC Compatible Kinect 2.0 Coming Soon

A listing on Microsoft's online store is pointing to a July release date for a standalone Kinect.

Kinect 2.0 will be available separate from the Xbox One starting July 15, and you can pre-order it by heading here. The standalone device costs $199 and is being sold more as a development tool than a entertainment device.

Our Take
The price tag is surprising, considering the the price difference between and Xbox One with a Kinect and one without is only $100. I am no economist, but it seems like removing the Xbox One insignia from the device shouldn't cost an extra $100. That being said, this is being sold as a piece of development software and I'm sure because of that, Microsoft isn't counting on selling a huge amount of them.
