You're basing....
Kinect selling well on "one" Gamestop in Florida? Of course you don't have the numbers. Besides those desperately trying to buy there kids love, I don't see this thing moving 5 million before this year's up.

I'm not basing...
Kinect's full sales on anything. I'm reporting one instance where it sold well, and reporting that there is a degree of demand for the device. Alongside the the report of the GameStop sales, there was no real interest at Best Buy, and Wal-Mart was clueless. If that isn't a report of a mixed bag, I don't know what is. Did you read the full story?

Last line: "How did it do nation-wide? I suppose we'll just have to wait and see for that. "

See what you did was say something positive about MS/Kinect. That automatically negates anything you might have said against it.

You need to get with the program here on!

Apologies are...
in order then. You don't usually get that on here but I big enough to admit when I'm wrong. My only beef with Kinect is the price they're asking you to pay. I mean right now I think only Kinect spots and Kinect Adventures support 2-players at one time. Another thing is if you're going to charge us $150 leave the damn processor on the camera. PsEye has a processor built in the camera, and it's only 40 bucks.

Ok...Kinect is selling well...
...but lining up at midnight for what is essentially a, MS are hype masters.

If Kinect is essentially a webcam (webcam + motion tracking),
then Move is essentially a dildo (dildo + motion tracking).

Yeah you disagree, because it doesn't make any sense.
And yet people agree that Kinect is "essentially a webcam" which makes just as little sense.

Double standards as usual.

Taking bubbles ....
for immaturity. If that's all I can expect to hear from you then one time is more than enough.

CastTV review: "Right now Kinect just seems like a glorified "webcam", and if that's it then we've been there and done that."

Death2494  +   1848d ago
You could've...
Kept the Live Vision Ccam for that. Now what are people suppose to do with it?
Mudkipz  +   1849d ago

Wow, must be the most pathetic launch ever.

Looks like a complete sales flop.
