Coming a week later from the US release.

Microsoft has dated its Xbox 360 motion-controller Kinect for the Europe, Middle East and Africa markets, at the Gamescom press conference yesterday.

The controller-free motion sensing camera Kinect will release on November 10, 2010, a week or so after the US release of November 4th. Kinect is priced at 149 euro (approx AED 720).

“We are bringing the Kinect experience to Europe for the first time at gamescom because this is the biggest show in the region and we’re committed to investing in Europe and the critical role it plays in Xbox’s global success,” said the European Xbox boss.

“With Kinect launching on November 10, it’s set to not only transform our business but also change how we use entertainment.

“With Kinect, YOU become the controller, giving you the choice in how you and your friends navigate entertainment and gaming experiences. We’re already seeing a high level of anticipation in Europe with sales of the Kinect ready Xbox 360 250GB creating an all-time record weekly market share.”
