I don't really need a Kinect. Let me start buying saying that. I don't even have a desire for one, my want is more out of the fact that it's $60 bones. Is it worth it? It comes with Kinect Adventures from the jump. I could see myself getting a bit of play out of it. Maybe pick up "Once Upon A Monster" for my son. Or let my fiance have her fun with it. I don't know. I could just save the cash. Deal or no deal guys?

Just because they stick a sale sign on a piece of shit doesn't mean its suddenly worth owning it.

Why buy one if you don't want one?

Buy yourself a hoop and stick instead.

$60 is a pretty good price, but yeah, if you don't have any specific needs that require a Kinect, it's probably still not worth it.

Sounds like the best idea so far. I'll get on it.

I wouldn't buy a Kinect for my own use if somebody offered it to me for a dollar.

However, I would buy it for a dollar and then turn around and sell it for $50. If you think you can turn a good profit by purchasing it and then reselling it, then go ahead - but you might lose too.

My steam library disagrees with you.

The Kinect has become my Nordictrack. I keep saying that I will use it for exercise or some form of entertainment, and all it does is collect dust. If it wasn't on the TV I would swear that it would have dirty close hanging off it.

I say wait until the 360 is retired and a flood of used kinects hits the stores for dirt cheap.

Trust me when I say, no one does.

It's a good thing MS is likely going to build Kinect directly into its next console package because barring that, they couldn't convince me to buy into it again.
