Microsoft [MSFT] recently announced the pricing of Microsoft Kinect for the Xbox 360, it will retail for $149.99, but now it seems that Microsoft isn’t making any money on the Kinect, as it reportedly cost about $150 to manufacture.
When you take into account marketing, software and everything else for Kinect, Microsoft could actually be making a loss on each one sold.
Microsoft has previously sold hardware at a loss, in the hope they would make their money from software and accessories, but as Kinect is an accessory they may be looking to make their money on bundle deals.
