Disadvantages: It's expensive
The Kinect picks up your moves very well and you don't even need a controller as your body is THE controller! This gives you much more freedom and allows you to fully enjoy the games without having to worry about hitting people with your remote! It also allows you to move your arms more, giving you a sense of freedom. It's much much better than the Wii as you aren't restricted in any way. Great stuff! Plus you don't need any batteries.
You have to give yourself a LOT of room in order for the Kinect to work. It lets you know if you need to move backwards or forwards but you get better results if you move further back so move some furniture if you can! It picks you up well and you can play by yourself or as a team (depending on which game you are playing!).
The Kinect has a nice finish to it. It's pretty sleek and elegant. It's black in colour so it fits well with the X Box console. You can buy the Kinect on it's own for just over £100 or you can buy it as a package with the console itself. It's a little expensive but it's worth it.
A great little gadget. It's easy to set up too and it doesn't require any assembly whatsoever. You simply just take it out of the box and plug in it, then you're ready to go!
Summary: Better than the Wii!
