    Thumbs down New Xbox 360 w/kinects...

    Well, I took the chance and bought a new 360 w/kinects for the kids. Not sure if anyone else here has one of these new, improved systems but my personal review is that they SUCK.

    Not only do you need a huge area in order to play any 2 player kinects game, but the system itself has frozen 3-4 times already and it's only been played for a total of maybe 2 hours all day.

    Then there is the Netflix issue. Seems you have to pay to keep the Xbox Gold membership in order to even use the Netflix subscription you're already paying for?? This issue alone is enough make me not like it.

    I can't wait until tomorrow when I can pack this POS up and give it back to Wally World.

    Not impressed at all...

    Never used one but a LOT of people already told me that same thing, THEY SUCK. About Netflix, yeah you have to pay for everything online-related with the 360.

    Great Micro$oft you've really done it this time, lol

    Yeah, they (M$) lost me as a customer that's for sure. For what I paid for this "thing", I could have bought two brand new Wiis..

    Well like anything new its gonna need time to perfect it.
    I am awaiting arrival of a xbox 360.... Should have had it over Christmas but missed the delivery Christmas Eve........

    I think it really relies on what you want out of a gaming system really so i'm staying open minded on this one.......

    Ie the gaming experience for say Call Of Duty has to be a completely different kettle of fish compared to the wii which I found at some points the game mission was impossible to control with the wii chuck etc......

    Ps Mine isnt the kinnect bundle......

    I tell ya what narse, the graphics are great on the 360. I just couldn't see paying twice (basically) for my Netflix subscription and then there was the freezing problem.

    From what I've read, the kinects camera might be upgraded to recognize fingers in the future. That would be interesting

    Hope you have better luck then I did.

    I bought 2 slims with kinects yesterday, selling one on fleebay as I got a good deal on the bundles.

    You do need some space, also do not listen to the advice that you can place it below the tv.... this adds about 3 foot more distance you need from the TV... make sure you have it ABOVE.

    I quite enjoyed it, its much better than the wii long as you can make enough room.
