Anyway I bought the 'Gamer pack' so I have the camera. It's (being polite) functional, and the voice control is accurate, even impressive, but if I didn't have it I wouldn't be devastated.
Microsoft really shot themselves in the head by forcing the Kinect on all their customers, which in turn made the minimum bar of entry just that little bit higher than they should have. It's the most expensive console of this generation now (and I am including the WiiU).
It'll sell bundles in the USA where it has all the features working fully, and they're a loyal bunch screaming USA! USA! as they wave their American flags and who can blame them.
I think they'll suffer in Europe though. Their brand isn't SO aligned to Europe that you'll have the fanaticism seen in the USA for XBox, and Japan for the Playstation, its features aren't all available, it costs more to own one (no matter what you get with it), and it isn't the superior platform this time around.
I think they'll be a pretty large shift over/back to Sony this time.
