I played at and was not impressed. Im 6'3" and i had to stand so far back from the damn thing to get it to register properly that you better have a big tv or else its pointless.

As many have said before me i don't wanna simulate real life when if i wanna go play basketball i can just go to my court and do so. Its not capable of taking me to the next gen of cool hands free gaming because it can sense everything i can do at once. If anyone has played boxing on anyone of these systems it should be clear. I'm training in MMA and there is no way my little sister should be able to beat me....all she does is flail away like crazy and wins every time.

Kinect me somewhere else and keep your fancy webcam/infared reader.

quite simply not a chance in hell WILL NOT BUY ANOTHER MS PRODUCT thats my first and main reason.
another reason is it'll probably flop wanna know why lots of game titles are regurgatated basically between titles and formats very few games are really "NEW' and look at history in gaming its never the best that wins only the first
and im afraid nintendo wii got there first look at the ps3 only crap games that retards play use motion controllers i predict the same thing will happen to this sorry if this is unpallatable to hardcore x360 users but i think this is more about dashes and jtags than moition controllers ive allready read that the kinect dash probably wont be able to run on jtags and that my friends is what this device is all about mad.gif
p.s. if the new version of forza say incorperates this conntroller are REAL gamers gonna use a biscuit tin lid or their ms wheel? ok maybe once for the gimmick factor but for proper gameplay no chance!
can anyone really imagine playing bad company2 on this thing no of course not!

uhh...what? couple things, first a flop? it's sold 8 million units (3 million more then microsofts own expectations) and is a helluva lot of fun... secondly, jtags support kinect (and its dash 2.0.12611.0) as i said, its a helluva lot of fun... At first I thought this might be an older post.. but freeBoot 12611 has been out for a long time before your jan 9 post..

I bought one on a whim just because Wal-Mart had one in stock before Thanksgiving. I figured I would try it out and if I didn't like it, I would give it to my granddaughter for Christmas. We love it. I went and bought her one for Christmas.

I like the bowling on sports, but can't wait for the Brunswick Bowling to come out. My wife likes the Zumba.

I like the fact that I can get a little exercise while having fun. It won't replace getting outside and getting "real" game play and exercise, but it is good at what it does.

As for hard core gamers, sure, they may not enjoy it. I do envision a weapon controller for getting into a FPS. maybe not as hardcore as MW2 and Black Ops, but maybe Rainbow 6 type games.

My 12 year old granddaughter won four games of boxing against four different opponents in back to back games. Just ask her if that wasn't exercise!

Bottom line, I love it. It works on my JTAG system just fine. I recommend it to everyone that asks.

I'm an old fashion guy who wants a controller in his hand. It's name says everything IT CONTROLS the GAME so if someone comes into my room I don't want to look like a mega high tripping monkey blink.gif . NO I AM NOT LAZY. Just like my wireless controller so much. I got something in my hand and it works. BTW how many games so far can be played with KINECT (so caled PROJECT NARNIA)? FEW? With my controllers ALL OF THEM except those few. Some day it might be a normal thing but even then...no thanks.

Well, one's a sick duck and I can't remember how it ends, but your mother's a whore.

It's a leap year, so yeah, a new poll would be in order.

*edit Something like, "Will this poll be updated when a new xbox is released?"
