You don't need a lot of room to do the game, and much of it can be done in a chair. The only thing I want to do is figure out how to keep it from taking my picture. Yikes.
In this bundle, you get the Kinect sensor, a wiring adapter for older Xbox 360 consoles which also includes the wire you need for the newer Xbox 360 S(Slim) console, and a sealed Kinect Adventures game.
Installing the Kinect sensor on my Xbox 360S 250GB took a few moments, as the cable fits into the console directly without any fuss. Although I purchased my Xbox 360S over 2 years ago, it still had to download an update to the software to work with the Kinect sensor.
I decided to buy the Kinect after seeing all the TV advertisements for Nike Kinect, Fitness Evolved, and Zumba Fitness. I took measurements all around the house to figure out a way to have the Kinect work properly. I had to reorganize my office to fit the Kinect sensor. The minimum space requirement of 6 feet is not a joke, although it is able to see most of my movements about 4-5 feet away. However, make no mistake 6 feet is a solid minimum for single player mode. I have not attempted multiplayer, but I hear 8 feet is required along with ample lateral space.
Luckily the cord length of the Kinect is more than enough even for more remote Xbox locations. I have my console located farther from the display due to my office layout and the Kinect cable length is more than long enough.
The tracking of the Kinect seems ok. I find it unintuitive to navigate the "Metro" menu interface, and it often confuses itself as to which of my hands is going up to command it. For instance, in Zumba Fitness Core, if I want to change my speed or step lesson, it will take a moment to see which hand I am raising and it isn't always accurate.
I definitely recommend a larger room for the Kinect, you will need at a minimum of 6 feet of space between yourself and the Kinect, and preferably 6-8 feet of width as well. Make no mistake though, it is still a very fun way to play active games and burn some calories in the process. Just learning a few steps in Zumba Fitness Core, I was breaking a sweat! I normally run and cycle outdoors to burn an average of 3000-4000 calories a week, and I wanted to play the Kinect games to work other muscles and have some fun indoors. I have yet to be disappointed.
Overall: 5/5 stars, a lot of fun! The drawbacks are that you need a decent size room to play in. Also note that with the next-generation Xbox coming out in late 2013, the Kinect may be obsolete and replaced by new accessories. Either watch for deals later on, or wait for the next generation of hardware and software.
