    I rather play with a controller than act that you have something in your hand

    i've read on forums from people who tried it that it was very laggy and barely playable...
    hope its not true, otherwise its going to be complete BS

    I think it's a cool concept, not needing controllers and all, but for me, I need a controller/steering wheel to race. I find it kind of hard to just hold my hands up and rotate around an imaginary point.

    Trying to eliminate a proven method of input is backwards progression, I mean it's been proven how intuitive mapping actions to buttons is.

    the wii will be the new wii. srsly, the wii is getting a surge of good games to reignite its spark.

    this crap is just their trying to cash in on the motion phenomenon. anyone else ever buy like a japanese mp3 player? yeah try using that and an ipod and tell me which is better...

    the wii of course would be the ipod and kinect being the bootleg mp3 player in this example.

    Can Microsoft comes up with good game that uses Kinect? Unless they can I'm afraid Kinect doesn't cut it compare to Move or Wii.

    Kinect won't do shit.
    PS Move on the other hand may be a different story

    PS Move is practically a direct copy of the Wii. I don't know about everyone else, but I support the original (Wii). I also support others who try new things (Kinect). I don't Support the copies (PS Move).

    Well, true.
    Although wasn't the wiis launch pretty lackluster as well?
    I mean all we had was Twilight Princess. Although thats still one more game then move.
    Edit: Oh wait you don't mean by games. I'm dumb

    doesn't the camera need to scan every new player and do some voodoo every time you play? that's not more accessible than not having a controller. if they can really do jump in and play then they got something.

    i doubt households with pre-teens+xbox will give up their FPS time to allow mom and dad act like idiots in front of their xbox.

    This may be the one thing that forces the Xbox to have more than FPS games in its lineup.
