    I can't imagine who will buy this when the Wii is half the price and has much better games.

      I think the big attraction for Kinect is... no controller required. Plus it's new, better games will come.

    I think the last question should be made so that people can select multiples. I own all 3 of those systems and all the popular consoles and a few oddballs that have been released since the 80s.

    For those living under the rock (or in a different world Wink ), here is a 2 minute Kinect commercial giving the idea how the thing works

    Looks really cool. May just have to get one of these. And no more drooling on the controller by the little guy.

    I'm semi interested, but not fully and at their price point I'm not at all. If it was $49 I'd likely buy it just to have it. $99 I'd be interested but likely would only purchase if I found a sale. At $149 I'd rather get 3 new games...

      Ouch! That is a steep price. Us Buxrites will find a much better deal than that in time I'm sure. Smile
