Today is the day you get to throw away your Xbox 360 gamepad and become the controller. Kinect has arrived. In fact if you're a truly dedicated fan you probably picked yours up at a midnight launch last night.
It's been a long road since we first heard about what was then called Project Natal back at E3 2009. Until a few months ago, interest in Kinect seemed tepid at best. And now suddenly Microsoft is bumping up sales projections for this year from 3 million to 5 million units. Five million in two months? That's confidence.
