Now that demos of finalized Kinect functionality are being released...

...I'm beginning to wonder if Microsoft was right all along - The Kinect technology really is going to enhance the console so significantly that Sony and Nintendo will be forced to play catch-up down the line.

If you haven't seen all that it can do, you really should check it out. It's pretty impressive tech and it has tons of potential. Even the Skype functionality and how it reacts to you during the calls was very cool.

Topic is so true.
Kinect 2.0 is going to be a major game changer and help make Xbox #1 the champion of next gen.

Agreed.

For example, the fact that it can recognize you based on physical structure and facial features...and load up your preferences only when you say so because it recognizes your vocal pattern...All of that and more is just really cool!

Sadly as much as I agree with this (super excited!) you may as well grab a flame shield. People do not like positive reactions for the X1 around here...

Let 'em flame.

They do it because they have nothing to be this excited about on their console of choice.

It's a big game changer, to be honest. The fact that my entertainment system recognizes me immediately when I walk into the room and I can control the whole thing with my voice, literally does change the way I'll be interacting with my entertainment. It sounds like a commercial, but damn.. it's just true.

People also don't realize that the Kinect 2 is 399.99 on it's own. It's an extremely powerful piece of hardware and getting it bundled with the Xbox for so cheap is a really good deal if you have any interest in it at all.
