Look at that list!!!!!

Its got fail written all over it, and why wouldn't they first make a balance of more hardcore titles such as a rip off of Time Crisis. instead kinect is launching with Zumba Fitness. Now all these titles are aimed at the causal market. Now the section of the causal game market these games tailor to are Mothers or kids (mostly girls) as you are not going to see an 8-30 year old male playing Dance masters when they can play call of duty instead. 

But another Disclaimer on the Kinect is that majority of the Causal market Kinect is aimed at already have an Wii and an array of family favourite Nintendo games to draw in all types of gamers. 

Whats an other problem with these games they are either related to the Wii or they are familiar to the eye toy. There rarely a thing orginal there. 

My recommendation is to save your money and wait yes Wait until there are better games, that gives you an back up if it bombs and no more games are being made for it or that any good games come out for it. 

edit:

The NY Post reports Microsoft is set to spend $500 million dollars in marketing Kinect, the Xbox 360 controller-free camera, this holiday. 

"Kinect is the largest, most integrated marketing initiative in Xbox history, bigger than its launch," said Robert Matthews, general manager of global marketing communications for Xbox. "We are going to be spending millions to launch this globally

I wouldn't rest 500,000,000 on those titles, i dont know MS really risky 

disclaimer: while i do have an PSN symbol below i do have an xbox and was considering buying the Kinect. Also i dont play XBL because it isn't free and hence no gamer card. again no PS3 fanboy here. 



Of Course That's Just My Opinion, I Could Be Wrong
