Kinect a good family gift?

0 0
How well does the Kinect work for a large family wanting to play together?

I can let you know after Christmas! Just a heads up though, they seem to be rather hard to find now but Best Buy is getting them in rather consistently if you decide to purchase one,

I work at GameStop, and it seems as the day we get our shipment in, they're gone that day. Sometimes it isn't that good, due to the fact that it's motion sensor reacts to the person in front, which leaves the other person not doing anything. In conclusion, it's a good gift if you can find one.

If you think a Wii is great for the family then you will be in heaven with the kinect. Its a blast, and a workout too. Just so much fun, but the down side is the library is still very small and half of the games in it right now are essentially garbage. We have Dance Central, Your Shape, and Kinect Adventures and those 3 are fantastic. Your Shape is easily the best fitness game on any platform IMO.

Definitely a fun family treat. I played it with a bunch of friends and it was a blast. I'm sure if you give it as a gift to a family, they will all surely enjoy it.

It gets the kids off the couch which is a definate plus in my books.

I'm going to sell my Wii so I can purchase the Kinect! This looks like a great way to play with your kids.

We have a 3.5 and a 1.5 yr old. It can be a little sensitive for the 3.5 yr old but she is obsessed with Kinectanimals. We've had it 3 days and it is all she wants to ply. For young kids (smallest doesn't play either yet) I still think the Wii is easier. We have to remind her to stay in the sensor area and if the little one wonders past it can get confused. So I think it is great and fun especially if you are older (with my 3 day of experience). But my daughter does love playing with her Tiger and taking care of him. it just needs an adult to help alot with the direction controls.

It seems pretty cool. I'm not sure if it's better than the wii though.
