According to Major Nelson’s blog, the new price for the Kinect will be US $109.99.  The reduced price will be effective in North America, Latin America and Asia Pacific regions. Additionally, on October 4, the Kinect will be available in Australia and New Zealand.

Also stated on the blog:

The final retail price will vary in each region based on the currency and other variables.

There are no price drop plans for EMEA and Japan.

The lack of a price change is not surprising due to the lack of success in Japan. Is the Kinect going the way of the Eye Toy? Does Microsoft have something new planned for the Xbox 720? Comment below on your thoughts.
