I am hoping I am wrong about the Kinect, that thing looks incredibly dumb. I used to be a die hard Xbox fan, but I have lost faith in it. The kinect looks like just some gimmicky, upgraded eye toy. I just don't see how they can integrate that into real gaming. Even games like tiger woods, which should be perfect for motion control, being iffy without anything to hold onto.
The new Xbox looks nice, but it's basically what it should have been from the start. I have had 2 red ring of deaths, and I think I am probably past warranty now, so if mine dies again, maybe I will consider it.
Bottom line, Microsoft has not impressed me lately. I went from playing nothing but xbox to playing almost nothing but pc games. Microsoft needs to get some good exclusives back. The only thing that will get me to turn my xbox on is the new Gears of War and Halo games. They should also just make xbox live free. Steam is way better.
