Ended up getting an xbox with kinect though - 4GB kinect bundle with 1 game $198, 250GB bundle with 2 games $256.  Lots of Kinect games for $20

Also 3DSs $119

Anyway thought I'd share original.gif  Does anyone else have the kinect?  What do you think?  What games are good?  Are there any good cartoony style platform games for xbox?  You know like the run and jump old mario style?  Love those games original.gif

We have xbox connect and love it, although we don't game alot, we have Sonic which has great graphics, takes a little getting used to the Kinect and needs to be set up right, as the kids are often yelling at the TV that it is doing something that they weren't.  DD loves the just dance on it so it has been a worthwhile purchase.

Thanks, what a bargain.  2 new 3DSs are waiting to be picked up at DSE Noosa!  We were just trying to find someone to repair the ones we have, at that price, why bother.

Sorry, can't help with the games.  DH says that the Kinect is not really designed for those types of games.  We have a Disneyland game that looks ok, kind of like being in the park.  We never play it, we are die hard Nintendo people.

Thanks again.

Thanks for the heads up. I bought the kinect sensor which comes with one game and two downloadables. Also bought two $20 games. original.gif

Thanks for posting.

Just as a heads up to others - I wanted two PS3 games for DH for his upcoming birthday.  Couldn't get them both at the one DSE store.  Rang EB games (closer to me than either of the DSE stores) and they said they would price match on games provided where they were price matching with had the stock available.  Took in printout off DSE website this morning and they double checked on the internet in store and then happily price matched for me without an issue.

Could be worth a try for anyone who wants games and has similar issues, or just has an EB store closer to you.
