    I think it will be cool at first but the novelty will wear off fast, kinda like the Wii. Come on Microsoft, show me some Fable III [​IMG]

    Your Mom
    We Are always getting random names, we got wii, XBOX 360 and now kinect.

    My thoughts on the "Kinect" is that there's a problem for example in a shooting game you will be shooting with an AK-47 with a solid finish made of air, also kids with these car games are gonna be practicing on a school with this imaginary steering wheel and making sounds like"bummmmmmmmmm" out of nowhere, and with new laser imaginary swords, etc.

    But excluding that(up) it will be an new gaming experience.

    No, EyeToy did it first, so it isn't new.

    And I'm gonna sell it because I'm not looking forward to any game, unless they announce FFvsXIII, but still I prefer to sell it and 3DS + launch titles :/.

    Does this also confirm the 360 Slim?

    "I'm selling my xbox now."

    Yeah, I did the same thing with my PS2 when the EyeToy released and missed awesome hardcore games.

    NOT.

    Why would this make you sell your Xbox 360? That's what's lame, imo.

    Anyways, the interface stuff is neat and all, but not worth spending an absurd amount of money on. So then it's up to the games to sell this device, and judging by what is listed here, I'm not impressed at all. This is a no go so far.

    *gasp* Did not know about that. I stand corrected.
    And like I said, I'm selling it since I prefer getting a 3DS with launch titles with that money, I thought this would bring new games, not copycats from wii/ps2 :/.
    PS: I want a DreamEye! It's like the cutest webcam ever [​IMG]

    No, John Strognofe did it first.

    It was an early prototype so the motion sensing wasn't all too great, but it did make a blur if you moved at the right time.

    I can see it now. Martial arts game. You're practicing your moves, and not watching anything else. Your kid, younger sibling, neighbor kid, etc. walks in front of you just as you are about to perform the Karate Kid special kick. WHACK! Right in the face.

    You know how people walk in front of the TV?

    It's got to suck when you are playing Kinect/Natal (Natal sounds cooler).

    What's funny is that there's alredy an EyeToy game for that... kind of.

    You can fight a dragon!
