I'd love to get the kinect but I'm going to have to see what games it comes out with and read some user reviews before I dish out 150$. I think it would be awesome if Microsoft integrated the Kinect sensor to work with windows 7 as well. That would be pretty sweet and would help them sell more units I think.

I think most people are holding back to see if it's actually going to be as competent as Microsoft claims, despite some of the shoddy media exposure it's had (BAM! in particular... god damn, I hated that guy in general- a lisping neckbeard with the most retarded avatar I've ever seen. I didn't even care that the Natal didn't motion capture him properly).

I'm not really sure for what purpose I would even use a Kinect, so I kinda wanna hold back to see what different ideas developers can come up with.

Ironically, I want one upcoming Kinect exclusive, Sonic FreeRiders, but I would only play it with traditional control.

They're trying something completely new, they don't know who their audience is, I think it's safe to just wait and see what happens.

I think its good, but I kinda see no point to the Kinect and its sports games, by this I mean why play tennis on the Kinect, when you can play it in real life, for free.

Tennis is by no means free. You need shoes, a racket, a ball, and a court. tongue.gif

we preordered the bundle with release day shipping from amazon. i am sure it will get a price drop by e3 and then we will buy another. if they add cross-platform windows7 compatibity that would be so cool.

From what Microsoft have said, it wouldn't work in the room where I have my 360 set up anyway so I'm out whether I want it or not. I think it's going to nose dive into bargain bins/see a substantial price drop within months regardless. When they hit 20 I'll try it out laugh.gif . Controllerless gaming doesn't appeal to me. I prefer to have something to hold and give real time feedback with buttons triggers etc for precision. This is something I think Microsoft have overlooked and Sony/Nintendo have picked up on.

I've been very impressed with Move on the PS3 and I reckon I'll pick that up before Kinect. I had a lot of fun playing Move with friends and could even see myself playing it solo too. The tech works really well and there's no need to have a soundstage setup in your living room like with Kinect. IMO Move is also a lot more reasonably priced for what it is too.

For now I already have a Wii (which I love) and a PS2 with an Eye Toy for my motion and controller free gaming cool.gif .
