Even though I’m a video game news junkie, the launch of the Kinect totally slipped my mind until just now. Microsoft’s entry into the motion control market are sitting on store shelves as you read this. I love buying the latest and greatest when it comes to video game stuff, but I’m sitting this launch out. Considering the fact that this product is backed by a $500 million marketing campaign, Microsoft is hoping I’m in the minority on this one.
As of now, the current software lineup doesn’t appeal to me, I’ve played it before and I’m skeptical about how well the thing works and I have a hard time justify dropping a $150 on the device. Will I ever cave? Maybe. I want to play Dance Central really bad, but not at $150 with nothing else to play.
Will you be buying a Kinect at launch? Whether you’re already in line for yours or you’re on the same boat as me, I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
