Kinect Costs As Much As The Xbox One?

I find it hard to believe that the new Kinect costs as much as the Xbox One to build. Unless there is gold / diamonds / Monster Cables in the damn thing, I highly doubt what this "anonymous" source is claiming.

The employee explained that the Kinect plays a major role in the Xbox One experience, adding that Microsoft bundled the sensor with the system to ensure all developers and gamers had access to it for every game. He said that Microsoft took a gamble with the new Kinect sensor, noting that it "costs almost as much as the console to make" and "the success of the Kinect carries much more weight" for Microsoft than the Xbox One.
