Advantages: Newest thing like this. Much laughter!!!
Disadvantages: You have to have an xbox first.
When this came out last year everyone was talking about it! How different it was and how amazing it performed! So of course with me having a Xbox 360 I wanted one. At the time they were £129.99 just about every where, so I ccouldnt just buy it. So my mum said she would buy it for me for Christmas. There was no chance of the price going down because everyone was going to buy one for Christmas. Now over half a year later it is around £100. Which is a great price because its sooo good and loads of fun. It comes with a free game as well. So you dont have to pay any more to get a game.
On Christmas day I was so excited about trying it out. I plugged it in, and into the Xbox. It comes up on the tv that it needs setting up, its really easy. The first time does take a while but you dont need to set up everything, for example, the microphone doesnt need to be in use all the time.
The game that came with it was Kinect Adventures. Its really fun and has loads of fun games on. Its up to two players. Its great how you see your Avatar doing all the things your doing, there and then. The reaction times are so quick. Its literally as you do it, it does it on the tv. Its so strange to see. I kept lifting my arms and legs just to see it on the tv. I was pretty amazed. This is the first thing like this on a games console. You do have the Wii but it doesnt use cameras like the Kinect does to know your movement. If you compare this to the Wii then price wise, the Wii is much better. You can get the Wii for about £130 now. Where as with the Kinect you have to have the Xbox which costs over £100 and the Kinect is about £100. The games for the Kinect are about £30-40 which is expensive but in time certain games with reduce in price. I have a few games ranging from £20 to £40.
One of the games I have is Kinect Sports. Which was number one for a long time. It might still be number one in the Kinect game chart. It cost £40 when it first came out with the Kinect. This is so fun and has so many games on it. I love it, and playing it with my family is so much fun. Everyone is constantly laughing and having fun. With this game after you have done your run for example, it has a little video of you doing it which is really embarrassing.
I think this product is the best thing out there like this (at this moment). I recommend everyone to give it a try because its so much fun!
Summary: Amzing fun!!
