Xbox One Kinect standalone coming October 7 for $149

Ever since Microsoft took the Kinect out of the Xbox One bundle, it's been selling a lot better, at a more manageable price. However, there are those who still want to grasp the experience of motion-based gestures, along with voice commands and games that utilize the device, like Kinect Sports Rivals. Not to worry, as you'll soon have your chance to snag the peripheral on its own.

Microsoft has announced on its Xbox Wire page that the Kinect sensor will be available for stand-alone purchase starting on October 7th. The device will come with a downloadable game, Harmonix's Dance Central Spotlight, and will retail for $149.99.

So if you don't have a Kinect yet, you'll soon have the chance to get one a la carte.
