I doubt it will be the only game I get (or play), but if Dance Central is as good and fun as it's supposed to be, to me it will be worth buying the kinect just for that game.
I mean how many people play fable 2, guitar hero 1, gears of war, and call of duty 2 on a daily basis? Those games together cost as much (more actually) as the Kinect (plus another game) does when they came out, but I doubt hardly anyone still plays them on a daily basis (or even close to it) any more.
I see your argument, but I wasn't really talking about the games, just the console. I know many of my friends have a Wii and a 360. The 360 is played on a nearly daily basis and the Wii collects dust. There are some fantastic titles for the Wii, no question, but not nearly as many as the 360 or PS3. Plus, many people play games online these days, which the Wii simply can't compete with, motion controls or not.
The games you mentioned are also older titles. I know guys who play MW2, WaW, Gears 2, NHL 11, Madden 11, and so on every day. I don't see Kinect games, past, present, or future, being able to sustain a long life due to either the quality of the game, multiplayer (or lack thereof) or the motion controls. Also, the Wii is completely motion controlled. Every Wii comes with a motion control controller while the Kinect is niche at best right now.
With all that being said, if a game interests you enough to warrant the $150 price tag and $50 for the game, then by all means buy it and enjoy it. I'm just second guessing my own purchase/pre-order right now based on my own personal experience and the experiences of my friends who, like me, also have limited space to play games.
I'm pretty sure MS (and Sony) are shooting for a home entertainment device (hence them being able to do so much), so of course someone who has the 360 in their bedroom wouldn't be what they are aiming for with the Kinect. They want it in the living room, where everyone can use it.
I completely agree. I think they are shooting for a home entertainment setup with the 360 and now Kinect. My argument is that a home entertainment center is not always a spacious living room with a couch, rug, a mother, father, two kids, and a dog in perfect light and all of that. The 360 can be played anywhere in the house or apartment without any real issues; why dilute or shrink the target audience from everyone who has a 360 (potentially) to families with a huge living room who play games maybe once a week?
