Not for me I think.
Me either, I just can't see it working here. I have a small room where
the 360 lives. I can't stretch my arms out without hitting something in
the room. I usually sit at my desk when playing 360 games via my PC
monitor, it's just not practical to stand up let alone jump about as the
demos have shown.
Same here. I play most of my 360 games at a desk on a PC monitor. I
don't want to jog on the spot in my front room.
If it was used for more subtle applications like head tracking and a few
small hand gestures then it might work. But then those aren't the sort
of games being made for it. It's basically a Wii without the controller,
so every game is going to be aimed at the "casual" market (ie. they'll

Who will buy a new 360 and Kinect to play that type of game in
