    It's good, non casual games that are missing for me.
    WII, Kinect, Move...it's all just wave wave wave hihihi! :grr:

    Now while that's nice, i'm missing innovation.

    Kinect is racist and is more progressively so the darker skinned one is, and Move look would not look out of place being sold in Ann Summers, this my friends, is the future of console gaming.

    Jokes aside, if Kinect really could track finger movements, and was fully supported by MS to be PC compatible, some great things could come from it I'm sure.

    I'd prefer a firmware update that allows it to work in slightly smaller rooms to be honest.

    Shouldn't it have done this from the start? Developers push things out that are half complete or broken, look at the STALKER series or anything by bethsaida. The original xbox had problems that proper testing would have highlighted and prevented. Kinda goes back to the blog post on here a couple of days ago about the death of demo's. Companies use betas now for quality control but so often reports from those betas goes unheard. Look how many people mentioned latancy as a problem yet microsoft conveniently ignored it.

    Could be cool, for FPS etc. f it was reliable enough.

    Sitting in an armchair holding an air gun (as in air guitar, not as in.. airgun lol), Kinect detecting movement on your trigger finger.

    Looks like the robotics researchers and hacking community are blowing MS - at developing for their own device... Lol fail. Bye, bye Steve.
