Walmart now accepting preorders for its $199 Kinect bundle

It’s no secret that retailers love them some gaming system bundles. Easy money. Traditionally they include a random 3rd-party accessory pack along with a sub-par game. However, Walmart’s Kinect bundle is a bit different. For $50 over the $149 MSRP, it includes one of the for launch games that retail for $60 ($60! That’s insane btw. Solid work, Microsoft) and a $30 Walmart eGift card. That’s actually a smart buy.

The deal is only good with pre-orders placed before July 23, 2010. If you’re planning on buying the Kinect anyway, why not hop on this offer. Unless you’re into overpaying — or waiting for the reviews.
