When I realized Kinect was Microsoft's #1 priority, I sold my XBox.

I guess the sports game would be fun? I don't know, I don't like motion gaming.

Get a Tuner card for your PC, enable media extender on your Xbox so you can run media Center. Scroll thru the menus and channels with a wave of your hand. Magic!

Step 1, sell Kinect on eBay.

Step 2, have fun with your XBOX

Hey look! It's the "I don't like it, so I need to shit on the thread guy"!

If you do get the UFC trainer, post up your reviews.
If I get a Kinect, that's on my short list of buys.

That makes as much sense as:

Step 1, sell the included 3D glasses on EBay.
Step 2, enjoy your new 3D television.

Even if you never play a kinect game, having the ability to control the Xbox by just using voice commands makes it worth having. I'd think you fat fucks would embrace the idea of having to move less.

To the OP, check the GameStop bargain bins for games before you dump $60 bucks on new ones.

Can you get this stupid thing without it being bundled with a ton of software or an Xbox?

Yes, you can buy the kinect alone, it runs about $110 this year. Last year it was $150. I bought my wife the kinect as her "big gift" for xmas last year. It does come with a game, basically to show off all the crap the device can do.

I got one that only came with Kinect Adventures.

Downloaded a bunch of demos. Just Dance is ridiculously hard for my fat white no rhythm having ass. The Biggest Loser is supposed to be the best fitness game, so I tried it. I think I was bleeding from my sweat glands in the first few minutes. Holy shit, do I need to stop eating garbage. I'd like to try the UFC Fitness one, but I think it might kill me.

There's a game called Children of Eden that comes highly recommended. Gave it a try at a friends house and it's extremely well put together. I honestly couldn't go with any other game for Kinect.

As far as non-Kinect games, there's so many to choose from. You'd have to narrow it down to what type of game you dig playing.

I've heard Gunstringer is pretty fucking cool from people whose opinion I trust.

Why has there been no visual Kama Sutra that corrected positioning and such? That would be an instant best seller.

There's a lot of crap on kinect, but both sports games are great fun. I can't recommend anything else.

Except, you can voice-control the xbox with it for video. That sounds like who-cares, but its weird how much you wind up using it when the controller's out of reach.

Alright, I got Kinect as well for a Christmas present. I told the person that bought it for me that I haven't touched my xbox in months and really didn't want to game that much anymore... So... they got me a kinect. Lovely. Anyway, I almost just gave it back to him and told him to go get his money back. I appreciate the thought... but I was telling him that so he wouldn't get me anything that involved video games. Anyway... Not sure what to get, because all of the games look like shit to me.

I may check out that children of eden...

Grabbed both Kinect Sports today. Been playing for several hours with my friends. Tons of fun. Highlights - bowling and darts. Both are fun as hell, and you don't have to ever actually leave your home.
