I got my Kinect yesterday after ordering it in June. I love anything new in the technology circles and have been watching this with interest since it was leaked in 2008 ;)
I set it up on my HD Projector first, but it will not work due to the light beam from the projector and of course the shadows that YOU cast by being in the way - Thought it might cause a problem, but wanted to try it.
Once it was on the 50" Plasma, all went well - my living room has about 10' x 10' of clear space which is best, but it DOES work in a 6' space, but its not as much fun if I am honest - I tried it by pulling a couch up behind me.
As for the games, I have Adventures and Sports, both are fantastic fun and a millions times better than anything I have ever seen on the Wii - you have the superb gameplay with the power of the 360 - a winning combination in my opinion. The bowling and Javelin where my faves, and the hurdles reall;y gave me a workout. Today I am aching a bit which means it worked lol
This technology is still in its infancy and once developers start to push it I think we will see a new genre in video games - especially when the 3D games start to flow out for 3D TV - Imagine how amazing that will be - 3D with Kinect technology - WOW!!
Anyway, if you have kids or you just want a great way to keep in shape without going to the gym or running up the streets full of yobs, then this is for you.
Microsoft have done us proud with this kit, although I think the price may be a bit too high for some with the financial climate being as it is - Maybe they should drop it til after XMAS back to 130 squid?
