Are you still using them or have they be assigned to the cupboard, or are just sitting there collecting dust?

I use mine now and then. It's always pligged in and ready to go. I mainly play some bowling or table tennis online or against my girlfriend in kinect sports. Hoping they bring out some better games though. Don't regret buying it otherwise.

Collecting dust. I unplugged it though because I didn't like the little red eye watching me in my living room 24/7 :S

collecting dust. its very much a "party" accessory, like my guitar hero world tour thing was. but i used that more than kinect.

saying this, im not a huge gamer.

i think my real reason for not using it much is the games though, theres not a hole lot out there....

Fully using it often, enjoying it a lot. Bought the wall bracket so it is out of the way, kids can't touch it, much better solution. Play a lot of Kinect sports with the wife, she enjoys it in spite of herself. Even had my parents playing a game of bowling in the weekend. Easy for them, no buttons to press etc.
I too am waiting for more titles tho, perhaps the upcoming carnival game will be good?



Bought Xbox for first time a couple of months ago, specially because of good price of bundle.
Enjoying non kinect games also, Halo Reach specifically, awesome, played it beginning to end of the course of about a week, have not been a console gamer before.

collecting dust, but I live in a house at the moment where someone goes to bed around 8pm every night. So really hard to play kinect after getting home and sorting dinner etc.

Gets occasional use but then that is what I expected. It is a great bit if kit but I always knew it would get limited attention simply because of the limited appeal of the play. The Xbox itself gets more use as a media extender which it what I brought it for in the first place.
