$229 is getting up there and does not make mention of including a game.

I will not me getting it unless the rest of my family force us into it (they wanted a WII).

Hopefully the actual price on the street will come down as it did for the Xbox slim otherwise I don't see Kinect making any real impact.

That's about the same as the US price ($149 excluding tax, I believe) so it's good to see that we're not being ripped off. I'll definitely be waiting to see what games are available and how the reviews look before making a decision.
