At $400, this is a motion gaming console priced to move!

UPDATE: As electricfuture pointed out, the pictured bundle is the $300 version. More palatable for the consumer, yes, but still suspect.

Coming Nov. 4, here is Microsoft’s $400 version of Wii. Suffice it to say, a $400 console this late in the game is pretty laughable’with or without motion. But who am I to judge? Maybe it will sell like hot cakes. (Wink, wink.)

That said, I’m glad both Sony and Microsoft are keeping Nintendo on their toes with motion alternatives. I just wish both Kinect and Move were more inspired; more original.
