    A theories regarding Microsoft's 500 million market for Kinect...

    in Sales Discussion on 10 January 2011

    I think what he is trying to say is the $50 discount you get on the bundle relative to the full price console plus stand alone kinect could have come from the marketing budget. I know this happens with mail in rebates and other promotional deals (e.g. buy an XBox between now and Jan 16 and get a free arcade game). The reason I do not think the Kinect console bundles cost differences...

    Americas Up!! (27th November 2010) *BLACK FRIDAY*

    Wow, I really did not think Wii had another Christmas like this in it, but I have been proven wrong. Americas 360 is what I expected, but I am a little disappointed with 360 in EMEAA, PS3 the reverse....

    Kinect VS Move SHIPPED Numbers? MS overshipping?

    in Sales Discussion on 15 November 2010

    HexenLord said: Went to Walmart to get a spare Move controller and look to see if they had any Kinect sensors on sale to get my Stepdad for Christmas. Zero move controllers. No Nav controllers. No Bundles. No Cameras. On the other hand. 10 Kinect Sensors and 3 360 Kinect Bundles.    Is Sony undershipping Move keeping it in low supply, or is MS overshipping Kinect to make sure it...

    Favourite Kinect Game??

    toadslayer72 said: Well I don't own Kinect yet but judging by what most people are saying, Dance Central is the best game out of the bunch followed by Kinect Sports. Personally, I'd go for the sports game, they say that the table tennis and bowling are great. Kinectimals may be worth some consideration for the young ones too. I was under the impression that there were a bunch of demos packed...
