Who cares about all the stuff you guys are saying?

NO MILO = FAIL

Kinect will most likely blow away Move and sell extremely well. MS made a mistake with the staged demos but overall the technology looks impressive.

Wii is done!

As for Wii being done...isn't all this motion stuff because MS and Sony want a part of their market.

Wii is done? Are you completely mental? LOL!

The web fell asleep over Kinect, that's what happened.

Well, someone lost a lot of money this week. Oh well, at least those Xbox Live fees should pay them off pretty fast.
