Is any "hardcore" gamer actually considering buying this thing?
I own all three consoles, I play 360 the most and ps3 and wii not too often.
Anyway, I would consider myself a hardcore gamer and as an ex-wii enthusiast, the lack of "hardcore" games has really disappointed me and pushed me away from the wii.
Yea the games that are on it are heaps of joy to play but nothing so far has matched the satisfaction I get after hours of playing 24 multiplayer BFBC 2 online.
My point is, I see the Kinect as a massive gimmick, I can't care less for voice commands, I'm not interested with motion sensing (anymore) and I just see this whole thing as M$ and $ony playing catch up to the wii.
