    XBox Kinect Hits Tonight...Anyone Interested?

    Some retailers (Gamestop for one) are opening tonight to begin selling Microsoft's Kinect XBox add-on at the stroke of midnight. Is anyone so interested in this fancy item that they're going to pick one up at the first ring of November 4th? Or is this just another Wii-wannabee-fad that will pass with little fanfare? I really can't get a beat on how this thing is going to do and am curious to see how overall response is from the gaming community and not the tech blogs that have been reviewing it for a while now.

    i'm more interested in how it controls other stuff like netflix and hulu than on games. I think it will progress further in that way than jumping around like a madman playing tennis.

    I'd like to see how it works. Not enough to shell out that kind of money for it.

    wii gimiick, so is the move, but thats a COMPLETE ripoff.
    funy how fanboys were saying motion controls are a gimmick, but now they say its the future..... becuase there platform also got it now and they must defend it like idiots they are.

    its mostly for casual gaming. since motion controls wont EVER be 1 to 1.

    Normal people will be too tired after midnight to configure and use anything other than their fingers to play video games

    No interest on my part. Although I hear that MS is making a killing with pre-orders.

    My thoughts exactly. It looks cool for the future, but I have no interest in pure motion controlled games. Yes I know it also works for controller free dashboard/video controls, but I'd rather just use my 360 MCE remote.

    I don't own an XBox, but if I did I probably wouldn't pay that much for Kinect. I can see someone that uses the XBox as their primary game system wanting to buy this for casual or family/party type games, but as a PC gamer I can get that for less money with a Wii.

    I like that these big companies are spilling lots of money in researching alternative input methods for games. Since XBox, PS3, and Wii are all now in the game for motion input, it will create some competition and possibly lead to innovations that might make them better for something other than casual or sport games.

    This is going to be slightly more successful then the Playstation eye...they will have the standard sports game and it will be the Wii without a remote.

    So it will boil down to titles and Kinect will have a couple huge title failures that try to utilize the motion controls.

    I will not get it and continue to rage about how the dashboard update for it is turrible.
