I knew we would see stories like this soon after Kinect launched. I'll pass on it anyway. I'll take my mouse and keyboard, or controller if I'm playing a console.

I think it will end up being one of the worst gimmicks in gaming history. A lot of gamers seem to be under the delusion that you can play "real" games on it instead of mini games and dance games and other crap. I like to laugh at the people who talk about how cool it will be when they can play Halo with Kinect. Not going to happen unless they come out with peripherals. Then those same idiots argue that you could just use a regular 360 controller. Yeah, I'd like to see people trying to hold that while they flail around like idiots. That's sure to cause more TV damage.

Well, positive to be gained from this: it is an Insignia TV.
(This is Best Buy's "value" (read: cheap/unreliable) brand TV.)

Time for an upgrade.

Emo TV is sad :* (

I'm so glad we can control games with our movements now, but I'm still waiting for those USB ports that support keyboards so I can type messages to punks on Live to also allow mice. Microsoft mice even. It charges my iPod, Blackberry, and Tilt2 already, it reads my Sony W90 as a mass storage device, it connects to my Windows 7 computer.
Yet, I still can't play Call of Duty with a mouse and keyboard.
I have a computer, but there's no point in buying the game a second time. Trading off games with friends, it's easier to pass a controller than a computer.

The simplest improvement in control has not been enabled, and while motion control is still jittery, a 1200dpi laser mouse isn't. Am I the only one who thinks this small, preference based feature has been omitted?

But you CAN use a mouse/keyboard with the 360... it's just that none of the games will let you take advantage of them for actual gameplay. Take it up with the game designers, who are probably just doing it so that they can simplify testing and keep online play "fair" by making sure everyone is using a relatively similar peripheral.

Microsoft will follow wii's example and instead of giving straps it will give chains and a psicological jacket and a ball-and-chain so you dont get that out of control... lol

I have them both for ps3 and 360 and they work VERY well.
