$150 for a toy gimmick is a bit much. For a substitute, you know what else is hysterical? Any activity involving friends and alcohol. Play the Benny Hill theme music and flail around a bit.

I loved the thing when I finally had a chance to play with the launch games.

Would I buy it? Only if I still had people in my apartment on a near-daily basis like I used to. But the dance game is hysterical, as is two player rafting. Playing with someone that's never seen it then having them fall over laughing as they see the pictures for the first time is classic. No on expects that it's taking those.

It's easily the best party video game in ages, not that there's much competition. A shame not every launch game seems to realize that's its primary audience.
If you're someone that games alone it's pointless.

Only Kinect's we had returned/traded-in were due to people who really needed they money for other things (food, cigs, drugs), but other then that we still can't keep the things in stock more then a day or 2.

Using a steering wheel on a Burnout game is like using the Space Shuttle controls to fly a kite.

Heh, that seems to be the case everywhere. Gee, who woulda thunk there'd be buyers remorse on an epic scale for these things? LOL! In the first world where the vast majority of people are too lazy to cook for themselves/eat properly, or clean, or do hard work, or work out, did anyone really think there'd be a market for these things that actually increase the amount of work you do to inferface with a computer? That all of a sudden everyone would buy all these fitness games - because what the hell else are they good for? - and use them religiously and want more? I can't wait to see them at every single garage sale this summer going for like $5.

They need to do something with it - my kids haven't touched it for 6 weeks. In fact it's actually been in the boot of my car for the last week after I tried to sell it to gamestation (UK gaming arm of blockbuster) and they WOULDN'T BUY IT CAUSE THEY HAD TOO MANY 2nd HAND ONES THEY COULDN'T SELL!!!!
