Yeah i downloaded it and got a look at it at lunch. It does look pretty nice. Like the new intro when you turn the xbox on too. Havn't gotten to fuss with it much but I will later with my NEW TV (Yussssss!!!)

A few days ago Microsoft was touring the area and me and a few friends got some pretty extensive play time on some Kinects, and they are actually fantastic.
Don't make assumptions.

Are you kidding me. I was at The Mall of America when they had a big booth. The stuff sucked. The thing had a huge lag between the motion and the game reacting. The games also horribly suck. Sadly.

I've seen enough to make assumptions. I've seen the retarded dance/exercise games, the decline into casual and cheaply-made software for children, the hideous lag when Turn 10 tried to apply the hardware to Forza 3. Obviously I've read previews too, with quotes such as:

Kinect Sports bowling (it's a lot like Wii bowling, albeit slightly less precise)

...

In fact a sophisticated Kinect game was nowhere in sight, and if I'm reading Microsoft's intentions correctly, that's just fine, because we already know how to play sophisticated games: With controllers. Microsoft's obviously aiming this thing at party gamers, kids, casual players, families, and getting back to consumers like my wife: Anyone looking for a full-body, peripheral-free home fitness coach.
So yeah, if that description fits you, go for it. I'm speaking with regards to the rest of us.

ya but at the same time how many great games did the wii have when it was first released?? and no look at the quality it has. Things like this take time. No superstar game comes out on day 1.

ESPN on the 360 is the equivalent to a pair of nuts since it doesn't have NFL.

It's completely obvious as to who Kinect is geared toward just from the Dashboard update. When you first open up the new Dashboard, it guides you through this frigging tutorial on how to navigate the interface. And, of course, the TV in the side picture is always outfitted with a Kinect. Only soccer moms, grandmas, and five-year-olds would need to learn how to navigate the already-simplistic Dashboard.

I think I will be skipping this one.
