Don't usually post deals in their own topics, but that is one hell of a price...

Wow... :/ and buy for £5, wtf...Not even worth the petrol for the journey to the store.

 

Doubt they'll throw them away at that price for long once they're sold separately

What is strange is the amount in stock, it's not sold separately so have they gutted them from all the trade ins???

 

In stock online 1200

And we all know the reason why it's so cheap is because you can't use it on anything other than an Xbox One. If there was a way of getting it to work on the PC instead of having to buy the Kinect for Windows one, I'd have been all over it. :/ So, at best, it's a pretty cheap replacement in case your Kinect dies, but everyone's still in the warranty period at the moment, so they'd get a free replacement from Microsoft anyway (provided it didn't die due to human error, obviously).

Great deal, although I doubt many will sell at any price. Maybe later on, if some interest is built.

Well as others have said, 100% of the Xbox Ones in UK homes came with a Kinect, and 100% of those are still in the manufacturer warranty period. Both of these reasons equate to near zero demand. It's basic market forces. Near Zero Demand = Near Zero Price.
