Was thinking of ordering one myself too. Been watching all the on-line Live vids about it. Look quite interesting and it small too and move on its own to follow you:eh?:

My mate works for xbox and has had it at home for a while now. I'd basically say if you or the Mrs like the Wii you'll be blown away by it, it's not cheap but awesome having no controller in hand, it's brilliant

gonna order it then as she loved the wii, amazon are the cheapest but i noticed it said they cant garntuee to be dilvered on release date becuase they are limited to what they get sent, so would it be worth paying the extra tenner and getting it from microsoft, whats the chances of everyone selling out of them before release date do you think?

Has anyone got theirs yet???

I've got one on hold at Argos so can go and pick it up before Saturday.... I'm thinking it will be a good Christmas present for the Wife but just can't make my mind up.......

I played it again last week and it is fantastic, tabletennis, running and Football are all really good - Plus the Mrs loved the dance stuff on it.....

I can see what MS are trying to do but I wish they would put more effort into things like 3D content instead.

The whole idea seems very limited to me, Its OK having no controler but the 360 pad has tons of buttons because you need them.

I'll wait 6 month till its in poundstretcher for 9.99 and put the money saved into buying a propper wheel :woot:

Haha good luck with that, the thing to look at his how big the Wii still is - People are still snapping them up 4-5 years on and TRUST ME the Kinect system honestly makes the Wii look like a childs toy..... (more then it actually ever did)! Xbox graphics alone would make it 10 times better but the way the system works is so clever, i am so impressed by it! I managed to get one through my mate at Xbox with 4 games so the Wife will be very happy come Christmas day :D

I'd strongly recommend anyone going and trying it if you're interested, i have been completely blown away :-)

We got one and we love it. Kills the wii stone dead. Mine has a fault tho and it keeps crashing. We got the bundle with the new 4gb xbox and it all works really well and was easy to setup but its crashed 8 times during today whilst playing a variety of games. Frustrating when I'm busting moves on Dance Central. Lol. Think I'll take it back which is a pisser as I've spent ages putting separate profiles on for all 3 of us. Cracking bit of kit tho. Anyone wanna buy a Wii? lol
