Kinect is supprisingly fun,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Xbox 360 4GB Console with Kinect (Video Game)I had not tried Kinect out before buying this, so I wasn't fully sure how fun it would be. I mostly got this package for the wireless xbox so that I could stream Netflix to my basement. But I figured since the basement is big and empty, I should give Kinect a try. I can honestly say I was surprised at how fun it was. This is also the first time I got my fiancee interested in a video game. The included Kinect Adventures game was a lot of fun and it had two player for all the games. Soon I will get an exercize game for us to share.
As for my primary goal, of Netflix streaming, it works great. The wireless works fine and set up was easy, except entering in my password was a pain with the controller. One issue that I came across though was trying to use two xbox's. I thought I had a brilliant plan: keep the old xbox hooked up directly to the router box on the main floor to give that TV Netflix, while keeping this wireless xbox downstairs for Kinect and Netflix to the basement. Problem with that is you have to reload your profile EVERY time you switch xbox's. Thats a real pain and I'm not about to buy two Live Gold accounts just to stream Netflix. I found a good solution though. Get a cheap USB thumb drive, and have the xbox load your profile to it. Then whenever you switch xbox's, just switch the thumb drive. It's not a perfect solution because you still have to move something around, but its honestly not to inconvenient.
