Updated: The lightning deal of $199 has expired. The current price is $249.
We have had a Kinect since December 2010 and even though we have all of
the other gaming systems (sigh), I cannot think of a system that beats
the Kinect for getting the kids to move while having fun. We all break a sweat when we play on the Kinect. You cannot sit down while playing the Kinect (as
you can do on the Wii), so while our other gaming systems are only
allowed at certain times of day, the Kinect is always available for free
It is excellent for weight loss (I'm doing it!), and for the kids'
physical education class when the weather is yucky. We also turn it on
when we have friends over, or for teen parties.
At the time of this writing, I know that Amazon is having a Lightning Sale on the Kinect with XBox 360 bundle, but I don't know the price yet (they keep it under wraps until it is live). Go here for the deal. You'll see it go live at 5:15am PST. (Amazon's regular price is $249.96)
