    Because a £8 switch is way too expensive

Of course, if I actually ever turned my Xbox on I might grab my switch and cable it up, it's just another small issue against the console.

    Seriously, if they have designed this new one so badly that they burn their fingers twice they really are stupid!! Me thinks this one will be fine (fingers crossed lol)

    Just an exercise in Microsoft bashing as far as I can see. The sucess or failure of this will be down to price.

    I think this article from Honda gives people a good idea of how Kinect does work/possibly works. (hell im only assuming) Honda Worldwide | ASIMO | Technology - Intelligence

    The technology behind it is amazing and I cant wait to see where this goes in years to come!
