The first UK retailer to go live with what it believes will be the final RRP for Microsoft's Xbox 360 Kinect has admitted that pre-orders for the device are very low”.

Boos Igor Cipolletta told Eurogamer that he believes the 100+ price is too high” and that he thinks with this current economy it should be around 70 – for 140 you can buy a Wii”.

It echoes similar comment he gave to MCV last week when he stated: Predictions of the Kinect price being over 79.99 will do little to engender early adopters and thus affect unit sales in the short to medium term.”

The retail boss conceded that the 129.99 RRP currently listed on his website is just a placeholder, though it is based on the $149.99 US price that he has been lead to believe is correct.

Cipolletta added that if the device should in fact retail for more than that anyone who pre-orders it at the current 124.86 will get it at that price.
