by | @AttackFanboy | on August 22, 2012

Microsoft announced earlier today that the Kinect will be permanently reduced to $109.99 in the United States. The company also noted that the price will be permanently dropped in North America, Latin America and Asia Pacific regions where the Kinect is sold.

Starting in early October, the Kinect will also see a price reduction in Australia and New Zealand. According to Major Nelson, “There are no price drop plans for EMEA or Japan.”

For core gamers the Kinect has been hit and miss. An initiative in recent months however has seen a few game implement the Kinect voice commands feature in really great ways. Skyrim, Mass Effect 3, and the upcoming Madden NFL 13 to name a few.

The price reduction has already gone into effect in the U.S., retailers like Amazon, GameStop, and Best Buy have already marked the accessory down from $149.99 to $109.99.
