do you guys flip coins to see who goes first?

but my thought is, they better not put effort into this...

the only cool thing is the voice control and minority report through netflix

How accurate is it?

That's the question.

Sure that's smart that it will be included in every X360.

According to a Seattle Times blog entry

"Prices and timing weren't available, but it won't be available until 2010 at the earliest and will probably cost around $200. Microsoft has already given game developers tools to start building games that uses the device."

Be interested to see how their voice recognition will work across the UK, given the historic impossibility in understanding our broad range of regional dialects.

EDIT: also, jesus christ at his cheap shot at waggle, when that ricochet demo looked like she was having some kind fo fit.

As someone who hasn't seen the actual video from the conference (blocked at work :(), what makes this more engaging than the EyeToy?

FAIL. You know that it is not going to work as it's supposed to... And I don't want imaginary controls. I think the audience is like "uhhh". :D

Either they include that piece of shit with every console sold from now on or it is another useless peripheral.

It looks real stupid and it was the reason why I sold my Wii; does everything need to be a chore? I like to play games so I can sit on my couch and not move as much as possible.

"Its not just a bunch of pre-set waggle commands!"

I loved that part, especially since they are doing this because of nintendo :lol

The demos they showed were horrifically bad.
I'm not sure how changing blades with a fucking hand gesture is any easier than a controller.

Not impressed at all.

Around $200? I can't see too many people paying that much for this, regardless of how cool it is. That raises the price of a motion-controlled 360 to $400-$600.

Looks like it doesn't work well. They should have worked on it more and put it out with the 720.

Plus, they have Molyneux selling it...which scares me.
