I purchased my Kinect shortly after it launched, and I have never regretted the purchase. We have definetly gotten our money out of it.
Would I like some more quality games to come out to utilize this technology? Sure. But then again, when purchasing any new technology, I understand that it will take some time till it's full
potential is realized. In the meantime, I have plenty to keep me busy.
I am in Australia and am utterly disappointed at Microsoft for still not having voice activation for the Oz region. They really need to get their butts into gear and get it happening, especially with the new dashboard etc that is to be released when it is
also supposed to. I love Kinect but am really disappointed at it and the original way it was marketed. Not false advertising but misleading.
Kinect is a fun gimmick. Something to gather a bunch of drunk people around a TV for an hour or so. But that's all it is, a gimmick. Microsoft's answer to people complaining about the lack of hardcore games is "hardcore kinect games". Now that is an oxymoron
if I ever heard one. And is MS is clearly unable to grasp what a game for the hardcore is.
If a game is good enough, I'll sink my entire day off of work in to playing it. Like I said, kinect is fun for an hour. But I'm not going to spend an entire day jumping around and kicking my feet like an idiot. I set aside time specifically for working out,
and kinect is not included. Gaming is what I do to relax, and when the time comes for some gaming, I want to calmly sit there with a controller in my hand and enjoy myself. Apparently this is difficult to comprehend.
