I'm gonna have to concur. Eyetoy never took off, Eyetoy with Wiimote ripoff is just that much more to spend. Kinect might be better than Eyetoy but its still the same thing pretty much.

I don't think anyone is really happy playing with their Wii. Most pay others to do it for them.

Nope, I have no issue with getting off the couch and standing in front of the tv, hmm reminds me of playing rockband or anything on the wii.

I personally think that anything that gets us off the couch and doing more than twiddling thumbs is a good idea.

Hmm interested because I am sure that currently I can play Rock Band or Guitar hero while sitting down. Heck I only play my Wii sitting down...

I'm sure YOU CAN, but I DON'T. Then again I'm not interested in being fat, or growing old with a permanent slouch because I didn't sit with proper posture or kept my ass always on the couch.

I most likely weight far less then you... I don't want to play games standing because I work and when I play games I want to relax. Working up a sweat is when i want to exercise, not play videogames.

My main problem with Kinect is not that you have to stand to play, although I think that sucks too. I just cannot stand any lag in my games, and from what I have seen Kinect has a lot of it. This would just ruin the experience for me.

Personally I would rather sit in my couch. Then again I'm down at the beach at 5am most days swimming and training. Sure if you do nothing else all day. It is good to get up.

Looks like you're able to sit and play with Kinect and supports 4 players at once. Microsoft is working on refining Kinect before launch. That's a good thing.

Recently I pre-ordered Kinect plus a game from Walmart.com with $30 gift card.
