I decided, for some reason that it would be a good idea to go ahead and buy the Kinect.


I'm happy with the decision; the thing is awesome. The movement of your body to the screen is almost 1 for 1 and the games for it are entertaining. They take pictures of you while your doing the various activities (like actually jumping to jump over posts/ect) The bowling game felt real... The boxing was fun. Everything worked seemlessly. In addition, the Kinnect can recognize your face and automatically switch avatars. It's simple and easy to use and well worth the money i spent for it.

It's very nicely constructed, and the advantage that it as overthe PS3's counterpart is that you don't need to buy 4 move controllers to have two people play, because kinnect doesn't use a controller.

I have yet to be dissapointed about anything about the purchase so far and recommend it. Although i'd hate for all games to start requiring motion to play, i can see this being a very intuitive alternate control scheme.

Saw a public demo for this in a store near me yesterday. Some school kids were trying it out by jumping up and ducking down to get through obstacles on the screen. I dunno what they were playing but it seemed pretty responsive and I couldn't see a noticable delay like you get with the Wii.
I can see some injuries coming from using this though, like accidently smacking the person next to you in the face etc.

I played this in Liverpool. Typical scouse dickheads got in the way. And old people gave a weird look, as if they have never seen a TV before (Which is weird in Liverpool, as you aren't a proper scouser until you've robbed a TV).

It's strange how you pretend to hate my great city but can't bring yourself to stay the fuck away.

I'm yet to have a go of Kinect.

I had to go to LJMU for an interview to work at Disney World next summer. Only reason why I went.

You fags are getting too local.


They need some more good games though, because right now there are only 2 and a half that are any good.

Gears of War is going Kinect if I'm not mistaken? And so is Harry Potter.

First Fable drops Kinect, now Gears won't even consider using it? Solid planning with that shit, Microsoft.

Not that Move is going to turn out any better. You need to make a piece of shit like the Wii for motion controls to have any mass appeal. At least Microsoft and Sony are going to make their money back.
