    Kinect rocks the boat and it will only get better. You "hardcore" badasses really just need to shut the fuck up and quit bitching.

    tried it at a future shop, was lots of fun... but not 150$ worth of fun, would pay 60 for it but needs good games.

    for some reason i feel like should go buy an ed hardy bikini for $23....wait no, no i dont. i remember now that i just wanted to read an article not sift to the bottom of spam ads.ban these people kinect is cool but im just not in the mood for a gimick especially for $150 dollars, i can do real exercise, use a remote control and play real games for that much. plus 3ds is coming

    Will there be a review of the fitness game? That one could pull me into Kinect. If I do end up getting it I'm gonna wait until the games get cheap on Amazon.

    Games journalist, should be renamed shit shifters. Because that is what most of Wii/Kinect/Move is.
