    i have Kinect , and i don't even use it ._.
    the motion sensor isn't that great , and i feel that the only games that you can enjoy are the simple ones that don't require too many gestures . so something as simple as a jump or kick would be good , but using handmotions and specific leg movements just confuses the user [eg. DECA Sports]

    Is there anything really supporting it? Typically when a peripheral like this was delivered on a Nintendo platform, it always failed from lack of developer support. There were maybe three or five games that ever used the NES light gun? Maybe one that used the gun for the SNES? Power pad, robot, Gameboy printer, card reader, drums, etc and the list goes on.

    It's amazing Kinect is selling so many units but to what end? It seems late in the 360 life cycle to be doing this. Then you have a lot of pissed off gamers when the 360.2 comes out and it's either incompatible or they release the Kintect 2 right off.

    I have a Kinect but I hardly use it. It's mainly because the games get repetitive quickly.

    The Kinect is a great device if not for usage for videogames.
    The wide variety of hacks that can be done with Kinect make this worth purchasing. There is home automation, Kinect aiding robotic surgery, the ability to turn you into a MIDI controller and a Kinect keyboard emulator.

    It's cool that it sells well.

    But it's kinda sad that it gets boring quickly.

    Lawl cheap copies of Wii are selling better than Wii itself?

    [​IMG] Kinect doesn't have a good game library but it sold over 10 million units? Did anyone EVER read the reviews? It does work like in the ad's but most games suck...

    I have the feeling that this is the case with a lot of people. They got it, it was a fun novelty for a while, but there's not much to keep it going. I haven't really seen or heard anything about it since launch. Have there like actually been any noteworthy games for it since launch? There's some stuff announced but it doesn't even look great. Even the hardcore stuff seems like it'd just do better with a controller.

    How can this technology be doing so well? It feels like a cheap gimmick to me, with no quality software and no practical gaming uses, I mean who is actually going to play serious games with this device? Until I see some good titles, I will remain disappointed with my kinect.

    Maybe because people bought it, expecting to much?

    It's just like the Wii. You get it, you play some stuff while standing up and swinging the Wiimote around.
    Then a while after that you find yourself lying in your ass barely flicking the remote.


    Videogames are meant to be played while sitting, with no much physical effort. However, being a new gimmick, it sold well and then bored people. Just as it will happen with 3D in the 3DS.
