Far less effusive than, say, Pogue’s review. But I get the feeling the Kinect and its initial game titles were purposefully designed more for casual gamers than serious ones. It’s more like the Wii with better graphics than Xbox with motion control; about appealing to (and creating) new Xbox users, not existing ones. See, for example, today’s entry from Penny Arcade’s Tycho, and the accompanying comic.
