Kinect better then Wii and old 360,
This review is from: Xbox 360 4GB Console with Kinect (Video Game)
We have all the systems, Xbox, Xbox 360, playstation 2, playstation 3, PSP, DSL, Wii, Itouch and now new Xbox 360 Kinect (video games are my addiction)
Positives about the new 360 with Kinect:
-Supper easy to install (even if you never own an xbox before)
-Has built in memory (old 360 didn't)
-You can add flash drives for even More memory (not xbox 360 memory card that cost $60, normal flash drive you can pick up for $20)
-Has built in Wi-Fi nothing to install to connect xbox live (old 360 you had buy an antenna)
-You can control the xbox main menu with your VOICE, say xbox, say game, voice command soooo Neat and Easy, so if your controller battier die no big deal just tell it what to do!! No controller needed.
-Kinect games are way More Fun then Wii, my 65 yr old mother (grandma) was playing with the kids everyone was laughing, jumping and enjoyed it!!
-Kinect games are easier then Wii for little kids but Fun for adults too.
With Wii you have to hold the controllers just right for them to work, if you don't flip your wrist a certain way you'll lose. My youngest can Never hold the controller right on the Wii and has a hard time scoring in the games and always lose. With Kinect there is NO controller, you use your body & your voice to play, my youngest has no problems with Kinect and score more then his older brothers!!
And my kids LOVE how Kinect can take pictures (Wii can't) of them jumping in the air while playing the game. When they are done playing, it will show them all the pictures & the kids will fall to the floor laughing at themselves, they never laugh when they play the Wii!!
Negatives about 360 with Kinect
You can NOT connect your old hard drive (not memory card) hard drive to the new 360 so you can't carry your old stuff over to the new one. (BACK IN 2010 YOU COULDN'T)
****UPDATE 2013: YOU CAN NOW TRANSFERE your old hard drive to your new XBOX 360, I BOUGHT A CORD (NO IDEA WHAT IT'S CALLED) AT GAME STOP(JUST ASK THEM THEY KNOW WHAT IT IS) ANYWAY PLUG OUR OLD HARD DRIVE INTO THE CORD THEN THE OTHER END OF THE CORD TO YOUR NEW XBOX 360 & TRANSFER EVERTHING FROM YOUR OLD 360 HARD DRIVE TO YOUR NEW XBOX 360
I can't think of any other negatives about the new xbox 360, we really enjoy it and can't wait to buy more kentic games to play with Grandma (WHICH WE DID) and I plan on selling our Wii. (WHICH WE DID)

you can also take the old hard drive out of the enclosure and put it in the expansion bay with a little electrical tape

You need a T6 torx bit to open the old hard drive. One screw is under the sticker in a corner. Also, use a flashlight to make sure you have the hard drive oriented correctly, since it will fit loosely. If you want, I think you can also buy a slim case for the hard drive, so it fits properly.

It could be possible that this review was written by a 2nd or 3rd language speaker. Additionally, I sometimes use "speech to text" programs, where you dictate text into a microphone (vs. typing), and based on the way the commentary has the same incorrect spelling for certain words, and the way certain words are skipped, it could be a technical problem, rather than her English. At a minimum, this is not an English grammar lesson. I thought the review was useful.
