Xbox 360 Kinect Sensor without AC Adapter (GameStop Refurbished)
I bought the Kinect and was pretty happy with what i got,i bought it pre-owned and was a little scared that it wouldn't work but it was fine.
First and foremost, I have read so many negative reviews on the Kinect from all over the place, and what I have found that it comes down to is having the space to use the product like intended. I can see how many people could have problems with the sensor, it is very sensitive by design, if you mess with this thing you could easily break it, so when you get it, LEAVE IT ALONE!! Set it up, put it down and leave it. Don't move the Kinect bar don't try and twist the camera, you will break it!
From a playability standpoint. I love it. There are not many games out for it but what is there is worth playing over and over again. A fitness gurus dream...if you've ever enjoyed playing wii fit, get this! Because its a huge game changer!
If you have a girlfriend or spouse who is sick of you playing black ops 2 all day, get this! Its enjoyable for everyone, very family friendly, brings people together, its a great opportunity to "Kinect" with others.
This truly adds value to your xbox experience, being able to use a wide range of xbox activity's without ever having to use a controller or remote.
On the games note again, its just fun...we'll worth the investment...
If your like me and have a ton of games you're not playing wait for another 30% twords per-owned purchases and out with the old in with the new. This was worth it, don't take all the negative reviews to heart, give it a try for yourself.
Amazing when it works
I purchased this refurb model for my son's birthday almost 30 days before his party. I highly recommend testing this before the initial 30 days is up. I was barely able to return mine when it didn't work during the party! The replacement worked great the first day or two, but lately the camera wants to look up instead of tracking the player. I want to try and remount it elsewhere before I make a final judgement. When it's working my sons (6 and 4) love it!
the kinect is pretty awesome. but it doesnt exactly fit my gaming style. i have one now and it is actually my third one. i keep getting them... than getting rid of them. the first one i got i traded my wii for and i ended up trading someone else for their wii for my kinect... lol than almost the same thing for the scond one. but when my kinect was mostly used it was when i threw parties, getting drunk and playing kinect really work out. but thats the only time i really play it.. now rarely parties. so rarely play my kinect :[
I love the kinect I agree that the kinect is better than the move for PS3 and the wii.To make a long review short I think people buy the kinect for easy reasons ......1 You don't have to hold a controler when you play everytime for a game that requires a controler for games for the PS3 and wii......2 Practically your pretty much the controller!
It is amazing.
Great quality, great design, great performance, the only thing i don't love is that there are no first person shooters for Kinect. But hopefully they come out in the future
is way better than the move and wii cobined so overall is awsome
I get bored everytime I play this sometimes but I like it.
