After releasing Kinect 2.0 for Windows, Windows Phone Central is reporting that the Xbox One-compatible version of the motion camera will be available in North America on October 6th. It will reportedly retail for $149, which is a good $50 cheaper from its Windows counterpart.

Microsoft began offering Xbox One SKUs without Kinect 2 in July and reported a large increase in sales following the same. While the console is yet to approach the PS4’s global numbers, it has helped bring the Xbox One’s price down to a more affordable $399 (as opposed to the model bundled with Kinect that retailed for $499 when it launched).

The popularity of Kinect titles has certainly dwindled in the past year with Microsoft focusing more on its indie showcase and AAA games like Halo 5: Guardians, Forza Horizon 2, Sunset Overdrive and much more. Will there still be a market for the Kinect 2.0 when it (allegedly) releases this November? Time will tell so stay tuned.
