…According to Lazard Capital Markets analyst Colin Sebastian (via Gamasutra), initial Kinect sales on ebay have fetched an average of around 30 percent more than the product’s MSRP of $149.99.
“We believe that early signs of demand for Kinect bode well for the device as a holiday gift item, and if the momentum continues, could provide the industry with a near-term shot in the arm,” Sebastian explained.
