As reported earlier this week, Amazon and Best Buy appear to still be sold out on Kinect sensor pre-orders. As a matter of fact, checking on Amazon’s list of sellers under “See My Buying Options” reveals that their third party resellers have now upped the price over $200 for their Kinect pre-orders.
Another check on eBay reveals that sellers are doing the same there. Charging anywhere from $159.99 to $300 for a pre-order there.
While I would like to believe that it’s the innovation in the new product and its easy to use interface, I’m much more inclined to believe that these sell-outs are largely happening due to the Oprah and Ellen effect.
