    With the dashboard update being today, and the Kinect being available three days from now, anyone have thoughts about getting it? I'm still on the fence about it.

    No. If Dance Central turns out to be ground breaking like GH/Rock band then I'll consider it.

    Not a chance, but I will keep an eye on it, see what comes out for it. Saving for the 3DS takes priority.

    Wwwhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaa?

    No thanks. I don't really play any games that would work for it. BTW, is the XBL update going REALLY slow for anyone else?

    Not even remotely interested. Im trying to steer clear of all this 'motion gaming' nonsense.
    Controller works fine, I dont need a gimmick getting between me and the game.

    Then again, Im not the target market for it, so it really doesnt matter.

    I'll wait to see what comes out of it. Did the same with the Move and now that there are games I want for it, I'll be hunting for one sometime.....

    I hate motion gaming. I like to sit on my ass and use the controller. So no..

    hell I haven't really played my 360 in a month. I need to find time to play it..

    You know what would make me buy it day one? Snatcher 2 (or 3) with a blade runner (meets Minority Report) interface. You're a fucking detective of the future, and the world and your investigation "desk" is always around you (like the dude in heavy rain). I'd buy that for 150 bucks. I don't want to jump on a raft.

    I'm gonna wait a year and if it's still the thing to have then I may follow the herd but not before.

    it was a lame joke about him sitting on the fence, and that i've been told you ideally need to be 9 feet form the camera for optimal flailing.

    Do not want. Don't have the room for it anyways even if there was something interesting for it.

    if you ask me going motion based games for PS3 and Xbox 360 is a big mistake as there fans bases don't seem to want that kind of game. they seem to be hard core gamers who wants top end graphics and plenty of arse kicking. Not dancing around like a nerd at a homecoming dance.

    Nope reminds me of a certain 32x from way back when. (a system add on, and a bad gimmick)

    Why it is a shame? Even if certain games and accessories aren't for you, have we really become so cynical that we wish failure on gaming systems we enjoy? Kinect and Move aren't replacing "core" games. They are bringing more people into gaming. Where is the downside?
