    I got a Kinect today and its so much fun, way more so than the wii! In fact I am going to trade my wii, wii fit board and all my games in to get more games for the kinect. There is a Zumba game but having never done Zumba I have no idea what its all about.

    All I can say is its more of a work out than the wii when you get going!

    Is it really good? I read you have to be 6ft away from it to do it for one person 8ft for 2 people?
    I've one for my 'gaming' partner for Christmas he doesn't know "I hope" he keeps dribbling over them haha did you get just the game with it or another one?xx

    I have one too! They are great but you do need a space of about 6ft for it to work.
    Great fun, had the inlaws round on sunday for dinner, then we did some bowling after - was great fun!

    Yes you need about 6-8 ftof room. Its excellent. I played Dance Central last night, brilliant! My wii is being traded in today. Once you've played kinect you won't go back to a wii!

    I traded everything in at gamestation store. They gave me £108 for the dsiXL, between £2-£10 for those games. I got £60 for my wii and £30 for my wii fit board plus betwwen £4 - £15 for the wii games each.

    I was going to keep my wii but after playing the kinect I knew I'd never turn the wi on again so it made sense to trade it all in. In all I got the kinect plus 6 games for it - more than ever had accumulated on the wii anyway!

    Only downside is at the moment there is only a limited choice of games available (though maybe thats a good thing for my bank balance!) but it looks like lots of exciting stuff is coming next year for it.

    I'd deffo recommend selling your gaming stuff on EBay you'll get lots more for it and if you don't want to post you can say collection only ;-))
