Default 12/06/11 xbox update, Kinect tempting me.

Just reading some info on the new xbox dashboard update being released this week and Kinect's functionality is being increased. I for one couldn't care less about Kinect enabled games but I would like to try out it's functions on the dashboard. No more navigating the menu system with the controller, just say "Mass Effect" and a list of ME related media will appear before you. Maybe I'll treat myself in the post xmas sales. Kinect is around 90 in the UK at the moment. I've always said I'd never get one but, their marketing strategy seems to be working on me. What are your thoughts on Kinect?

Well I gave in and got it. Had some spare cash so thought I'd give it a go. Loving it! Really like the voice commands and can now enjoy exercise.

I bought a kinect last year and I really like it. The wifey and I like having people over for games and this is an awesome way to get non-gamers comfortable with trying out some games. Even the Adventtures game that comes with it is really fun. And don't forget the video chat feature!

Just waiting the aching to stop and then I'll play again lol. If I have friends over on my birthday again this year there will be some great stories to tell, we are all crazy as fuck when drunk.

I'm still hesitant about getting a kinect. There's not really any games that I would play on it, but I'm more pissed that the update took away the party feature for Netflix.

Agreed. I'm in the same boat. I bought the Wii under the impression that motion controls would change gaming, and it did... for the worse. Then I bought the Sony shit and had a few laughs with it, but ultimately I got rid of it as well because it just wasn't all that much fun. It's going to take something pretty awesome to get me to buy the Kinect, and just being able to swipe through menus with my hand isn't it. I still contend that the Kinect has the most potential of all the motion control platforms, but I don't think they've reached anywhere close to that potential as of yet.

Also, as for the Party system leaving Netflix... WTF Netflix? Who is making the decisions at your company?! Y U NO SMART?!

The thing is I'll always have an xbox so it's a nice add-on. I had a wii and only played wii sports and Mario kart so fucked that off after a few months. Years ago I had a PS3 also, didn't like the exclusives so that ended up just being a very expensive blu-ray player, fucked that off for a nice few pennies as it was the old 60GB model.
So the xbox is staying, so is Kinect and you WILL see the benefits of me having it in a future post (~evil laugh~ ha ha ha ha ha)

We can Skype them if needed, although I think you can still party chat on the 360, but it won't sync the movie anymore.
