    Default how much potential does the kinect have?

    the kinect seems to be an interesting gadget. since not many mainstream games are available on the kinect currently i cant decide whether to buy it or not. do kinect games need separate modding/flashing? are they readily available like all other pirated 360 games? will kinect be a hardcore gaming device, a casual family pastime or an utter failure? using the kinect seems to be a lot of fun, but will it wear off after a while? do you guys think investing on the kinect now is a good idea?

    If you have the money and space in room, go for it.
    The abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power.
    Please do not PM me for support. You will NOT get a reply. Post in the relevant forum section.

    360slim & ps3 both are different consoles whereas kinect is just a additional hardware for motion control in 360. They can not be compared. Also, ps3 has a motion control hardware named Playstation Move.

    A PC. lol kidding, well depends look up the exclusives that each have to offer and make the decision yourself. Dont listen to fanboy opinions such as " Oh the cell is the best processor", " Ps3 has better graphics", "Xbox has better games", " You cant play fake games on ps3", etc etc The decision is totally up to you the fact is what your looking for, frankly speaking Im playing original games with my x360 despite the fact that I can mod it, why ? well two reason.
    No.1 its moral to do so, No.2 I can play online !
    But I would recommend the Ps3 over the xbox as to me the ps3 has better Titles.
    FTW!!!!!!!!!!

    Default Re: how much potential does the kinect have?

    The thread topic is a question that i had in mind since Kinect surfaced
    But will Kinect be compatible with older Xbox versions such as Arcade or Pro?
    Will we need additional equipments to attach it to the Xbox 360?

    i thought it'd be cool to play FPS without a controller
    that'd be so real!

    well wait for a while then, koi ek din por there might be a special gun made for kinect ...and well without anyone around, you might enjoy playing kinectimals, forza 4(when it comes out) and a few games ..but majority of the game is to play with people!
