Not for me. Absolutely pointless. I'd happily pay 20 for full mkv support than that plastic rubbish.

I work in a local game store and considering we have had 40 preorders for new xbox (uk) and like 30 for halo reach legendary edition, and only 1 preorder for kinect maybe it wont sell aswell over here. personally I will get it, mainly because I'll get 25% off rrp. tongue.gif

Ive been very impressed by what i have seen of it so far. I think it will sell very well. Unlimited players on one "controller". better value than the PS motion controller, so much better than the Wii.

I have three consoles here and have no intention of splurging on a 130 camera. There's nothing wrong with the 360 Controller, so why reinvent the wheel? Like others, I was burned over the Wii. It's a gimmick and nothing more.

Agree with the point about the Wii - got one at release, sold it on 4 months later. Spent the first week thinking you had to flail your arms round like a banshee to bowl, box etc - then found out you could just do it sitting down.....Nintendo's not been the same since the SNES....

Think I'll get a Kinect though, and give it a go - maybe wait a couple of months after release so there's a few more games other than the ones I've seen so far - petting a baby tiger? I've got a dog for that....

Analyst: Microsoft could get 1 billion USD from Xbox Kinect

Me: Microsoft could make a loss from Xbox Kinect

Can I be a high paid analyst?

I agree, sitting on a couch is much better then being active in front of my television. Specially when ive worked all day. People that are fat or just want more exersice shouldn't choose for a console in the first place.....

too $$$ for what is going to be just a failed gimmick for this gen


I dont know how you can say that to be honest. We don know if its going to be any good or not. When Microsoft came out with plans for their xbox console their were people saying i would be rubbish and microsoft should stick to software. But they came out on top.

Just have to give it a chance to shine, It might well fall flat on its face at which point you can call it a gimmick. But if they pull this off it will be a huge change in the gaming world.

I would consider buying one if someone hacks it and writes drivers for the PC. It could be a very interesting tool in the right hands.
