What are the numbers you see Sony and Microsoft posting at the end of the year for Move and Kinect sales?

I have a Kinect, but only because I bought several in order to sell them at a profit and pay for mine :)

It isn't bad, but works better for my kids because they're shorter. I only have about 6' or so from sensor to where my legs hit the back of the couch and it works for Kinect Adventures as long as I don't step forward or jump.

I was actually getting read to re-arrange my family room so that my wife could use her copy of Get Fit with Mel B. and increase the distance to about 8' so that she didn't kick the tv or hit the pull chains on our fan.

The move is definitely better in tight spots and poor lighting conditions. It is really about the kids for me though as the Kinect is most definitely not for the hardcore person (unless you consider Dance Central hardcore)

I'll try to post more once I have time to use it more. I do think that MS shouldn't have cut out the hardware processing to allow it to respond quicker, but it works <a href=

Good to know someone over here at PS3Blog won the copy of the Mel B game from the link that Oly posted. I've owned a Wii since launch so Move is an easier sell for me once the games are there. Kinect on the other hand has to convince me to buy a 360 (which I won't do because of the high failure rate, having to pay for Live and Microsofts bad, bad customer service) AND spend over $150 on a camera that sorta works when the planets align.

I'd like to add to EdEN's bad customer service post by saying I've received bad customer service from Sony more than I have from Microsoft. I'm still miffed about permanently losing two slots of my psn activation.

My room has been officially re-arranged, but I have not broken out any games since doing so because I've just been so tired. The kids have a tendency to wake up in the middle of the night for a myriad of reasons and my sleep gets interrupted :(

Both of my kids love Kinect Adventures and I like it from the aspect that it wears them out ;) <a href=
