I went to my favorite electronics store yesterday and saw the consoles section the Kinect was all alone, it was even depressing considering that theres always people dancing Poker Face, maybe the paranoia is over? who knows but those games are boring for me because they are rather "monkey see monkey do" since the potential of the Kinect has not yet been archived.

They'll sell the next 10 mil units more quickly if pron industry has its way, but I agree with Cota, about 'potential' issues of the device for now.
