Like every other game console/peripheral, the Kinect now has its first accessories, and I’m sure there are more down the pipeline. PDP is bringing a Microsoft-approved wall mount, floor mount, and TV stand to help keep your Kinect upright in whatever way you want. Pricing is as follows: the wall mount is $15 the floor stand is $30, and the TV mount is $40. Finally, if you want to keep your Kinect far, far away from your actual TV, there’s a 50-foot Kinect extension cable that can be had for a low, low $50. Ouch. You’ll be able to grab all these when the Kinect arrives in November.
