My boyfriend persuaded me to buy one of these a few months ago, and i'm glad he did! They are so much fun! I have the Wii and this is one step up from that as you are the controller, you use you hands to guide the cursor.
we paid £249 from Pc world for an xbox+kinect and it came with Kinect adventures game. Its a good little game and gets you used to the controls for the kinect. My favourite game on the kinect adventures is 20,000 leaks under the sea where you are in a glass tank and fish come and hit the tank and break the glass- creating leaks and you use your hands, head and feet to seal the holes!
The next game we brought was Kinect Sports, which is much better than adventures, it's much more physically demanding as well. We paid about £36 for this game and its a lot of fun! Our favourite is the athletic events where you do long jump, sprinting, discuss and javelin. It's not like the wii where you can just move your hand to do the movement, you actually have to move your arms and legs to throw the discuss etc... Other games on this are volleyball, table tennis and football. I think there is a great chance of hurting yourself playing kinect as your are so involved you do see that door you hit your hand into, that coffee table to kick or the light shade you hit your head on! So try and remove as much furniture as possible before playing!
One the things i like about kinect is after you have played your game it shows little picture highlights of you playing and you can be seen in some strange positions whilst playing the game, but it's a great laugh. My friend comes round quite often just to play on it!
Summary: Keeps you fit
