04 KinectIf you thought the Kinect for Windows was too pricey for you to purchase and tinker around with, especially if you’re a student – we’ve got some good news for you. Today, Microsoft announced a special academic pricing on Kinect for Windows in the US. If you’re a student, educator or faculty with an accredited school (university, community college, vocational school or K-12), you will be able to purchase the Kinect for Windows at a special price of $149.99 instead of the usual $249.99. (In case you were wondering, Kinect for Windows does cost more than the Kinect for Xbox 360).

For those of you who qualify for such a purchase and would like to take advantage of this $100 reduction, just head over to the Microsoft Store today. Just make sure you have verification of your academic status in order to get the discount.
