On my way back to the new Microsoft Store that opened in Oakbrook, IL today.  Was there for Grand Opening which I was told was 9AM when it was really 10AM.   So didnt see it yet.  Yet they had a line of about 500 people of course part of this was simply because it was the Grand Opening.  They have what looks like two pretty permanent Kinect stations outside of the store and plenty of people in line to try.  Many of the people were inline to purchase. They figured the store would have a lot because it was the Grand Opening and not many people knew the store was there.

My sister in Little Rock AR got in to Target this AM and got the last Kinect add-on.  All they have left are Kinects bundles with consoles.

I would also check twitter for #Kinect.  Saw this tweet just now.

From @CollenWeather a meterologist at a TV station in Texas.

Got distracted going to the breakroom..everyone was trying out the new for XBOX360.Can we put this in the breakroom permanently?



Its libraries that sell systems not a single game.

Selling more than Reach Week 1 ? impossible.

boost of reach. meaning its boost on the hardware. that doesnt have anything to do with reach sales week one.

Its going to be big in America!



End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

it will be huge initially deffo



...not much time to post anymore, used to be awesome on here really good fond memories from VGchartz...

PSN: Skeeuk - XBL: SkeeUK - PC: Skeeuk

really miss the VGCHARTZ of 2008 - 2013...

Large in the States, I've seen quite a bit of buzz. Can't speak for EMEAA, but I imagine a boost there too, just not as big. Japan may actually give it a shot too, but it'll probably perform as good as (or slightly worse) than Move.



                                                                                                                                            

Sadly I don't know yet as I'm still working.  I will ask the Gamestop guys when I pick mine up later tonight (after work, boy's karate, dinner...).

Sometimes being an adult sucks.
