Well, the first moron that we've heard of. He's not really a moron, he's Phil Villarreal, author and critic. And he's out a pricey television. You are the controller? No Phil, you are the guy with the broken TV.

"A public service announcement: Do not under any circumstances play Kinect Sports Volleyball at 1:30 a.m. while standing under a ceiling fan with a dangling chain for a light switch," he writes.

The result was that Phil apparently spiked the dangling chain into his 47-inch 1080p LCD HDTV, leaving it with a rainbow LCD teardrop of death. Kinect went on sale on November 4. It is now November 5. That television was purchased last December, and it never lived to see its second Christmas. How sad.

When the Nintendo Wii launched in 2006, there were also claims that flying Wii Remotes caused accidents — some real, some not. Anytime you get gamers off the sofa and floundering around the living room, you're asking for trouble.

Is that a Wii sensor bar on top of the TV? I'm surprised he didn't destroy it with a Wiimote

Wait. wait. He managed to break his tv with the "Controller" even though kinect's big selling point is your the controller...My guess is he punched his tv when he realized he spent money on that crap.

Good way to disguise your anger by blaming it on yourself, eh?

I was considering to get Konnect for the Harry Potter and Sonic Free Riders games but now this just about if not completely turned me off to getting Konnect.

Also Burger King is a Konnect Sellout! Konnectimals DLC or something. It had something to do with inserting the toy into the game for your animal pal to play with.
