quote: what does fitness have to do with gaming
quote: As for your last paragraph, that's just sad. Children should be learning ballet properly with a proper tutor, for their own safety, and to meet other kids. I'm not sure how granny is going to ballroom dance on her own too, unless the kinect can project a partner to lead her, but really ,she should eb out meeting other people too? Then your weird aunt really really really needs to get out and meet people when learning river-dance, rather than just being locked away in her home using a kinect. If this sort of device encourages further isolationism of people, and you think that that is a great thing then I am a more than a little saddened, to be honest.
quote: Nice new example, that has nothing to do with anything that you said before.

quote: I wish your lonely, friendless, socially inept child well for the future tho :o)
quote: Enjoy the hospital bills when your kid pulls/tares something, or injures themselves in another way *thumbs up*(If you have insurance, then who cares? I know, money is all that matters, not their well-being or not putting a child at risk of injury. Who cares about that?)
quote: What is it with table tennis? Gaming has come so far since pong... :o)To their credit, MS have made a version of table tennis that you can virtually play that is not only far more expensive than just using your dining room table and a cheap table tennis set from toyRus, but they've also managed to make a version that requires as much space. Brilliant! :oD
quote: It'll be interesting to see how long you'll be playing these Kinect mini-games for, or doing your yoga and fitness evolved. Much longer than people did with the Wii?
quote: For the record, I think that kinect is a great piece of hardware and has a lot of potential. I'm just not sure that it's all that usable for people who live in smaller homes, nor that developers have realised quite what to do with it.
quote: Don't forget how many people wrote off the kinect before its launch as a total lame accessory that would bomb.
quote: I've played one for months now (can finally spill the beans without breaking my friends NDA). It absolutely will not flop. They are gonna sell a bajillion of these things and people are going to have a blast.Hardcore gamer is not the same thing as "fun game hater". Even the hardcore folks (like me... 30hrs/wk of 3dshooters) are gonna have fun.
quote: I have to raise an eyebrow to the poster who mentioned something about "finger" gestures- I don't believe the cameras and firmware in their current state do not have the resolution or processing power to accomplish something like this. However, I hope I'm wrong!
