As someone who is used to playing the Wii and Xbox 360 I was slightly cynical when I heard about Kinect as I felt it was an attempt to combine the two consoles, HOWEVER I was quite wrong. Kinect is really for people who are active or wish to get active as you are unable to play it from a sitting down position unlike the Wii. The cameras on it are very sensitive and pick up every movement. They take pictures at vital points whilst you are playing the games so it gives everyone a good giggle when looking at them. The are a couple negative things I have to say about Kinect. Kinect Adventures is rubbish, no where near as good as Wii Sports as there is 5 games on it which become very tedious after a couple of plays. Also in order to play Kinect you require a large area (you need to start off at least 6ft away from TV) to play it in, especially if there are two players involved.
