    The Kinect is as faddish as the Wii; It's the new casual thing to get.

    However, it isn't NEARLY as strong as the Wii because NOTHING is being released for it. Literally nothing. Sure, 10 million and probably more will be sold (a big score for Microsoft), but then 9.5 million will be left asking why they even bought the thing in the first place.

    The Kinect really just made the old 360 live for another 3-5 years.

    Looking at the title, I thought it would be about PS3 gamers jumping to 360 after the recent events. [​IMG]

    If you're saying that about the Kinect, I wonder what you think about the PS Move. Did that put the PS3 on life support as well?

    Pshhhh. The Move didn't do ANYTHING to the PS3. Nothing big has happened to it at all.

    Sony has to bring up their game to compete with the Kinect, while Nintendo will just sit and procrastinate on their rusty little throne.

    The Move is a complete Wiimote rip off, I'll admit that fully, but at least it was a good device. My experience with the Kinect have been nothing but boring and inaccurate. It seems to be following the Wii trend; a lot of families pick one up, thinking it'll be a great family device for fun. They play it for about a day or two and then it just sits there, gathering dust. At least with the Wii they had some worthwhile games past just family friendly fluff to keep the system worth playing, the Kinect is just really boring.

    I'm just wondering how it's still selling so well.

    The Kinect would be perfectly fine if it didn't get seizures every now and then. Ever tried Sonic Freeriders? [​IMG]

    My heart is breaking apart when I think that there's this 1 Sonic game I'll never get to finish. Not because I'm not capable enough, but because it's so god-awful unforgiving. So far the only title I'd get Kinect for and it's BROKEN.
