    Bloody OW!

    Got the Kinect for my birthday from wifes family. Have been playing about with it happily until last weekend when I was trying to play a game on the Kinect and also kick the soft plush ball for the dog. Not concentrating enough I tried to kick the ball and kicked straight into the ground (concrete floor under carpet). Heard a nice big click and was on the floor in agony (which the Kinect kindly recorded and showed me after my games as one of my "highlights!"). Pretty sure I've broken my big toe, and as there's nothing that can be done, having to endure the constant niggling little pain.

    Stupid Kinect
    Stupid ball
    Stupid dog
    Stupid floor

    This is in no way my fault, it's all the above named fault!

    Sorry to hear that. Sounds painful.
    You ought to get it checked out to make sure that it isnt dislocated or out of line - they can do something about that

    Not sure if it's still saved, I didnt share it so i'm assuming it just forgets the video unless you tell it specifically not to

    Thankfully I haven't punched anyone while playing (unlike the youtube vid of that guy taking his daughters head off!) and we don't have ceiling lights in the living room so no worry of smashing them. only thing i have to worry about now is playing football and kicking towards the tv.....make sure no loose shoes
