My wife hates anything electronic I buy she refers to it as more crap I'll never use.
However she loves Kinect and comes home from work to play it. First time Ive ever seen her play a video game since Ms Pac Man on the kids arcade cabinet. Its also something our whole family gets into. Comical to see my 7 year old challenge my wife to a dance off. My wife and kids love it. I enjoy it a lot but Im more of a first person shooter so Kinect fills my goofy side and my PC fills my serious gamer side.
This is one game I see everyone wanting to do especially at a party.
I also hope the star wars game they are going to release at the end of the year is good. I need to get my star wars kid on.
The only thing im concerned with is that Microsoft continues to keep the games rolling for Kinect. Im also considering getting one for my PC because the homebrew stuff is starting to look very cool. Especially those merging Kinect with Movie/short film production of virtual actors.
