Default Who's buying Kinect on release? What games?

Ok, who's buying Kinect on release and what games? For extra points, why that game?

Games announced so far:
* Kinect Adventures (Microsoft Game Studios) (supposed to be included in the box).
* Kinectimals (Frontier Studio/Microsoft Game Studios)
* Kinect Joy Ride (Big Park/Microsoft Game Studios)
* Kinect Sports (Rare/Microsoft Game Studios)
* Dance Central (MTV Games)
* Your Shape: Fitness Evolved (Ubisoft)
* EA Sports Active 2 (EA)
* Deca Sports Freedom (Hudson)
* Dance Masters (Konami)
* Adrenalin Misfits (Konami)
* Zumba Fitness (Majesco)
* Sonic Free Riders (Sega)
* The Biggest Loser: Ultimate Workout (THQ)
* Motion Sports (Ubisoft)
* Game Party: In Motion (Warner Bros.)

-----------

I'm likely going to pick this up on launch and grab Sports and Dance Central, because sports is the run of the mill usual bunch of games in one, and dance central looks pretty fun as a party game.

Feel free to crap on Kinect and MS in http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=151987 thread.

The good thing about there being so many "sports" games on launch is you can buy 1 game and you basically have every other Kinect game available at that time.

I like how a bunch of them are workout games. It's not good enough anymore to buy a $10 workout DVD. Now you have to spend $300 or more for the interactive experience.

No, I am not buying a kinect. I can't wait for these motion control gimmicks to fade away. But if I were to get one for 360 or PS3, I'd probably pick the PS3 Move. It's aimed towards older gamers imo.

There is no way im paying 130 for a controler (i can get a nintendo wii for the same price and it dose the same thing get you off your fat ass jumpin around like a gimp).
Microsoft have got the price all wrong the kinect is a gimick only to be played when frends or family are over for a party.
Im haging on for the playstation move what with socom 4 and time crisis working with move loads better games.

I'm getting a Kinect so I can stroke Lara's arse in her new Live Arcade game.

I think you will find that relationship one-sided crainger.

I got Kinect on order from TRU for $96 shipped.

Probably will pick up Kinectimals, Dance Central, and Kinect Sports.

Considering it has a two player limit, worse specs than the Eye Toy, and Kung Fu Live is better than the entire Kinect launch library on it's own, I think I'll pass.

Nope, not that interested in having depth sensing eye-toy.
I'm more interested what they will do next gen, when bandwidth to the device is high enough for proper quality.

Exactly


I have to get this because my son is so excited about it. I'll maybe play it a little bit with him but it's going to be his present.
