The Kinect sensor does what MS claims the device is supposed to do. Plain and simple. I purchased it used from gamestop about a week ago. I did not want to purchase new at its launch. When MS stated at E3 2011 that core titles are coming, I chose to pick one up.Here is why I chose used over new: http://projectkx.blogspot.com/2011/06/why-i-purchased-used-kinect-with-coupon.htmlI also have a prototype controller for Kinect that I feel MS needs to look into to grab more core gamers. Check it out here: http://projectkx.blogspot.com/2011/01/project-k-design-reveal.html

A forgettable product. It isn't bad, exactly, but also doesn't do anything particularly well. - Engadget
