Yesterday Microsoft released their highly anticipated Kinect for Xbox 360 hands free controller. I kept an eye on things via Twitter and found some comments that were quite amusing/interesting so I thought I would share some of those here along with a list of the reviews I have come across in my RSS feeds.
So sit back, relax and enjoy the commentary of those experiencing or about to experience Kinect for themselves.
OathbreakerOminous that my lunch fortune cookie on the day I pick up Kinect says "You laugh now, wait till you get home."
Dee_CazoKinect is here leave me alone.
NeedlerFanPudgeGlad the Kinect is finally out. I can tell people I’ve had it for three months and I got a free one from Beta Testing now. :D
BlownSpeakersTurns out the xbox needs to be on BEFORE plugging in kinect, REGAIN HYPE
tf5_bassistHooray! Gonna’ get my Kinect after work today! Looks like little to no overtime for me today hehehe…
pushsquareSo it’s Kinect launch day and Microsoft say: "WE’RE MAKING KINECT GAMES WITH THE CONTROLLER TOO!" But I thought *I* was the controller?
jamesashleyBest thing about Kinect so far is all the UX innovations required to make it work with gestures. Very well done. Surprisingly responsive.
delusionownzyouOMG I am hyper right now! Why do I have to be confined to a chair when i could be busting kinect out!
PogoplayGotta wait until tomorrow to pick up my Kinect 250GB Bundle, but I WANT IT NOW!
mwinklehave a bit of a headache, maybe it’s best that I stay home and make sure my #kinect works fine.
