lol, that is awesome. I follow the lead developer for Gears of War on Twitter and he did the EXACT same thing for Thanksgiving. Brought the Kinect to family and let them loose.

I was hosting Turkey Day and got the family involved. I don't know if I burned more calories doing Kinect or laughing at Grampy trying it.

I was also at midnight Black Friday (not real big shoping, I just love being in the crowd...call me crazy) and overheard people talking about the Kinect being a game changer.

Anyhow, back to Gears. I find the Horde mode easier and funner. You work as a team and play with cool weapons versus being owned by major players in multiplayer. You earn achievements and experience doing either.

They multiply the experience points you earn by 10. So, if you earn 100 experience points in a match, you will get 1,000 experience points instead. It is this weekend only.

In one match, I was able to get 1 kill. I played pretty terrible. However, I went from level 2 to level 8. That felt pretty good. Then, I did the horde mode for a few minutes. Boom...level 11.

Yeah, that is a great price. Even Amazon has it for $30 still. New, but still twice the price. 10x XP is pretty amazing.

For you Gears of War 2 owners, this weekend will feature 10x XP. I played 5 round match and got 1 kill. Yeah, it has been a while since I've played. However, I went from lvl 2 to 8 doing that.

You also gain in the Horde mode, either by yourself or with friends. If anyone is online any night this weekend, hit me up.

In other news, Activision yanked previous plans to have a double XP weekend for Black Ops. Rumors say it has something to do with MS's free Gold membership weekend. Either way, normal XP going around.

For those that don't have Gears of War 2, you can purchase the entire game on demand via Xbox Marketplace. It costs $30 and have it instantly (or as fast as you can download 6 gigs). Or, I think you can find it used for about $20.
