With Amazon UK and GAME locking down their Kinect preorder lists, KineticBoom.com have highlighted some of the Kinect preorder scams that are doing the rounds at the moment.

That's funny all 3 local game stores are still taking pre orders
is sold out until recently as Microsoft increased their allocation but they said that they expect to be sold out again within the week. I would guess it will be the same story for the three stores near you.
I work for one of those 3 stores though and we haven't heard anything about stopping deposits yet also we are giving 1 copy of kinect away and some staff have it ordered but arnt buying it. As my manager wants loads too free sale. We have had a sign on our door saying only 15 left for 4 weeks now. Its all rubbish we do to make people want to order it more.
I can't wait for Kinect for two reasons: No. 1: I want to play with Kinect and try to get my girlfriend into gaming. No. 2: I want to see the sales of Kinect. It is sold out at Game.co.uk, Amazon.co.uk, Newegg and Gamestop. And advertising has not started yet. 3 million in the first 2 months seems like an educated guess.
And i want to see the backlash from dissapointed consumers who just realised they wasted 150$
I am looking forward to it too will be nice for the other half to use my 360 as well as when my little sister comes round. I know this site hates Kinect but from what I can see it is going to be the next wii at xmas and it should be interesting to see the difference in sales of the wii and the 360 come this xmas. I also think kinect will get used alot more than the PS move and the wii in homes because of the media side ect. Yes it is not showing off everything MS said at E3 2009 but I have been following what has been said about Kinect since e3 2010 and I think MS will make Kinect the add on to have for any console and it will help improve the xbox name and also move the console away from its FPS tag that is has and move it into the PS3 side of its a console for all gamers.
&DiRtY No.1: You should play with your girlfriend instead No.2: You should start working for MS, get very high on the ladder and please then pass us the real numbers.
lets see if the software can keep up
Applies to every "must-have" item you buy, not just Kinect.
a colossal scam. 130 quid for something that does what the EyeToy did ten years ago. Who they tryin' to fool?
Well, no...not really. EyeToy couldn't do 80% of what Kinect does, and it certainly couldn't do it with any accuracy. But thanks for playing.
then a crappy kinect controller lol. Also its not sold out lol. I work at a gamestop and we have to say that to make people think they should preorder it. we will continue to say we are sold out and then a few days later except more preorders. They have the gamestops on a rotation on who is supposed to be sold out so that people will go to the other one and preorder.
I'm more excited to see this leave Move in the dust and fanboy reactions than I am about the games
that's because the launch games aren't worth discussing. Go ahead and label me a PS3 fanboy and deflect the argument rather than address it. It's OK, I know it's what you do best.
and never ever talk about it's games Strange XP
there is no shortage of parts for Kinect MS is just keeping allocations low for obvious good business reasons. They can keep the supply chain flowing with Kinect. its up to them if they want to give up sales so they can say its a sell out to build up hype regardless...I aint buying Kinect this year... price drop + real games before I buy one
