Totally spot on. Sucks that Microsoft gives its early adopters the shaft after all this time.

I love using it for Skype, great for my kids to talk to the grandparents on the tv. No complaints.
Xbox one, PS3, Wii
Play for the games not the evil corporation, they're all evil in the end.

I don't have cable. I get all my entertainment through Amazon and Netflix. The voice commands are very helpful.

NPD = Backtracking. It's hard to sell products with a bad game plan unless you have a strong branding like Apple because they constantly have worse bugs than a lot of the flagship smart phones, but people still continue to buy diluted iPhones.
PS4 Master Race. PC and Wii U suck.

I actually get upset about that. lol I would love to be able to use a headset to say "xbox snap whatever" ya know? Why do I have to yell at my Kinect? lol I don't loathe my Kinect like some other people but I fully recognize that MS is just refusing to give up on this failed freaking product. lol It's an expensive camera/mic... and it doesn't even work the way they envision it. :/
