Kinecting or Un-Kinecting People? A Good Start For Microsoft's Motion Money-Spinner?

Game Podunker DanCurtis writes, "It's November, its freezing cold outside and here in the UK hundreds of people are queuing in lines waiting eagerly for the release of what is rapidly becoming this year's must-have Christmas device.
