Microsoft plans to offer a Kinect bundle for $400 when its motion-gaming peripheral launches on November 4.

The bundle includes a 250GB Xbox 360 Slim, the Kinect peripheral , and video game Kinect Adventures. Microsoft plans to release the bundle on November 4, the same day it will launch the Kinect peripheral.

For the price, consumers are getting a decent deal. The 250GB console retails for $300 without the extras, and the Kinect on its own will sell for $149.

The latest bundle is the second Microsoft has announced for the Kinect. In July, the company announced a $300 Kinect bundle with an Xbox 360 with 4GB of flash memory, the peripheral, and Kinect Adventures. That bundle is also due out November 4.
