Hey Cheapy, I'm sure someone out there could send you a copy of Quantum of Solace, I no longer have mine but it was $10 at BB a few years ago. it's playable but not not a great game.

the line at tru times square can be explained with the following

they were giving away 2 free games and 1 year of live to the first 3000 people who bought it. also first 400 were invited to some launch party.

Yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.

Clever girl...

Isn't getting ESPN 3 on your XBOX dependent upon your ISP, and not whether you have it on your cable package? Also, you can buy Goldeneye Wii with a special gold dual analog classic controller.

Cheapy's distaste for the Kinect comes fast and furious, lol

I can't believe people are actually debating on spending $50 for NBA Jam.

Yeah, it looks fun and cool but 50 bucks?! It is pretty obvious they are trying to recoup money after their NBA Elite failure by banking on the one part of the game that didn't look like crap. This should be an XBLA release.

Great show as always. Although a special thanks goes to CHEAPY, all day long I have the James Bond theme playing in my head whenever I do anything. Just sent an email "Du du da daaaaaa", Just finished a report "Du du da daaaaa", just took a shit "Du du da daaaaa".

Hey Cheapy,

You and the rest of the press have had a ton of exposure to Kinect. Enough to take the sheen off. For the rest of us, we want to try the new toy man. I'd buy it just for the cool factor of the interface navigation stuff. Why wouldn't you be able to get that?

You live in Japan. They still have arcades there right? Kinect is the more pricey elaborate arcade game in the corner. The one with the unique interface that costs a bit more to play.

My favorite party game is Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party for the dance game. I've gotten 4 adults playing that and really had a blast. Playing something like that without the need of controllers would be a dream.

I hope that shines some light on why some of us who don't have kids would be excited about Kinect. Love the show.

P.S. Why can't I find Forza 3 Ultimate Collection on the site? I was hoping to find the best price for it.

Yeah, about that...

I found that the Kinect Hub, which is brought up by either waving your hand while on the "classic" Xbox 360 Dashboard or saying "Xbox Kinect" is functional, but, if anything, requires far more effort to perform the most simple tasks than simply using a controller and the regular Dashboard. Here's the problem: In order to select something, you have to hover your hand over it for a three-count. Then, there's a delay as an extremely simplified version of, say, your friends list comes up. Navigating further into the menus is just as slow, as is navigating back out.

Wasn't there a full disc version of NBA Elite 11 out already? Or was it a beta disc?

Sounds like a collectors item, perhaps the rarest 360 game behind Dead Space Limited Edition?

Did you guys know Danny Trejo is Raul The Ghoul in New Vegas?

You mean you took advantage of me and my laughter with your false claims!?

Shame on you Wombat...shame on you.

The thought of seeing a video of Wombat bathing has forced me to stab my eyes out with a pencil.

Wait, wait, wait......

Cheapy, you would buy a new television, with a gimmick inarguably less popular and more expensive than motion controls, so you can give us impressions of 3D gaming? You "did it for us"? What kind of bullshit do you eat for breakfast, Cheapy?

It was "just a couple hundred dollars more" for this passing fad of 3D-ness yet the Kinect is only $150; The Move only $100. You dismiss an entire genre of gaming and it's 4 year proven history out of hand and embrace a niche gimmick that you've already said was underwhelming and won't last?

Nerd it up with those special glasses, dude. And tell us when the headaches begin.
