It’s all well and good that reviewers think Kinect is a flawed look at the future, or a potentially revolutionary motion control that you don’t need right now. But ultimately, Kinect is a brand new console, and like any other, its longevity will be determined by ordinary users. With the disclaimer that Microsoft’s target audience — people who watch Oprah — probably aren’t venting on Internet forums, here are some quick Kinect reactions from the common folk thus far.
“Only a very limited Kinect portal is available for control, which is lame. When seeing the update for Xbox live, I thought for sure this update was to facilitate Kinect in creating a Minority Report-Type interface. This interface is simply not available.” - dolphtesla, Reddit
