  • Summary: I honestly think it's a good add-on for the xbox 360. The price is kinda high considering how old it is now (around 2 years or so) and the fact that the Xbox One will be released soon but if you use it ever day or every other day and play games like Kinect Adventures it will be a good work out and keep you in shape. Just make sure you have a lot of spare room, like use in a living room or a big room with lots of move around space.

  • Summary: So far, so good. If this situation changes we will update the rating. We purchased this product for gaming and as a fitness aid for adults, through Walmart online. Arrived on time and installation was simple and easy. Works great and does what its advertisement says. It is overpriced, however, but that is mainly a Microsoft issue and not the retailer's. The suggested stand for mounting it is flimsy plastic and very short, suited for a small child.

Too soon to be useful; may change soon.

  • Summary: This product is hardware only. No manual; no software. Plug it into Windows 8 Developer Preview and drivers download, but that's it. Install the Software Development Kit (SDK) and you can see the crudest demos. I also downloaded a couple of third party tools, none of which worked. Right now, it's a paperweight. Hopefully, when Windows 8 Consumer Preview comes out 2/29/11, this Kinect will become useful. More likely, it will take months.

  • Summary: "Item arrived on time and great price for this product. Does a good job of holding the kinect. It is a plastic stand, and one of the sections of the stand arrived cracked.

a little disappointing after all the hype.

  • Excerpt: The Kinect was a pretty revolutionary piece of equipment when it was first launched and I was beside myself with excitement to try it out when it was first released. However after two weeks or so the novelty completely wore off. One issue is the amount of space you need to play a game properly and I got a bit sick of moving the furniture about every time I wanted a game. Having said that it is very responsive to little movements which makes it much better than the Wii.

  • Excerpt: When the Kinect came out it was an exciting moment, it's a controller that makes it possible to play a game using yourself to control the players on the game, so we brought one and then the problems started. We did not think to check whether you needed to be a certain distance from the kinect in order for it to work but it turns out you do. You need to be 6ft away from the Kinect in order for it to work.

  • Summary: Ho comprato l'anno scorso una xbox 360 da 250 GB con incluso al suo interno il sensore kinect. Inizialmente ero piuttosto felice dell'idea di usare un controller che si basasse sui movimenti del corpo per giocare,poi approfondento sempre di più , ho scoperto alcune falle che mi hanno fatto ricredere CARATTERISTICHE DEL PRODOTTO Si tratta di un prodotto presentato già nel 2009 dotato di una telecamera RGB, due sensori di profondità e diversi microfoni che servono ad...

Déception

Benbento, Ciao
14 October 2013
  • Summary: J’ai acheté le Kinect il y a plusieurs mois et je dois bien avouer que je regrette un peu cet achat, fait sur un coup de tête. Jouer sans manettes… forcément, ça m’intriguait ! Malheureusement, j’ai beau avoir un salon de taille correcte, j’ai eu du mal à trouver les 3 mètres de recul qu’il faut avoir pour jouer dans des conditions optimales… J’imagine que c’est le cas de beaucoup d’entre nous… !
  • Pros: sympa pour jouer à plusieurs
  • Cons: demande trop d'espace, peu de jeux
