    Nice scare tactic. Apparently just advertising your impending failure isn't enough, you now need to generate artificial hype.

    I know a lot of people want to believe Kinect is going to fail.... but... pre-orders are already tracking waaaaayy ahead of what's expected.

    It will sell fairly well, at least at first. And it will sell a lot more than the Sony Move, which despite reports from VGchartz (*snicker*), has already bombed massively.

    I read the title, thinking that there would be no Kinects to sell in the UK come launch.

    At least the UK is getting Kinect. It is banned in china as well as the console it runs on.

    From most polls that I've seen kinect seems to have a higher percentage of people who want it.

    Well if you don't include the I am not getting one and or waiting for more information considering the poll the more information one is missing or less.

    that was before people saw the price and pretty much everytime it makes news, it is about its failure / shortcomings

    Well, I guess I really shouldn't care unless it comes out with more then 3 decent games assuming I can't play it with a control or it comes out with something so legendary it has to be bought.

    I just hope it isn't crap for the people that buy it.

    It won't sell out, sales numbers will probably be better then Move by a fair margin, but the problem is like Move, there is very little in the way of software support at release to really give people a reason to buy it.

    lol, they aren't supplying enough hardware. Nintendo did this in the 80s with NES games to generate hype

    So it's just like the Sony Move. Also, it's good to see that you speak for everyone. lol. [​IMG]

    This product is a gimmick, and it barely works, and so called "hardcore" gamers hate it, but anyone who says its not going to sell is a fool.

    So they pull the artificial shortage shit like Nintendo did?

    Yeah, sorry Microsoft, That only works for a product people actually want.

    pretty funny how things changed. First it was natal is the future and playstion motion controller is me-too. Show some prices. Kinect is pointless and move is the wii killer! all bunch of bull crap to me.

    I guess you're too young to remember the PS2 launch.
