For Star Wars Kinect, I like being the Rancor as well as the saber battles. I'm not amused by the dance mode, but it's nice they threw in so many options in this game.

I learned with my sister-in-laws Xbox that the 4Gb hard drive doesn't let you download items. :(
But once you have a bigger hard drive, you can download free games through the Kinect Fun Labs app. Here's a list of currently FREE Xbox Live arcade games, the first two are for the Kinect:
-Intel Discovered
-Kinect Party
-Aegis Wing
-Happy Wars
-Dash of Destruction
-Doritos Crash Course
-Harms Way

I liked Aegis Wing & Doritos Crash Course, but my niece and nephew LOVE Kinect Party. I have a few friends that greatly enjoy Happy Wars, but I'm not good at it.

If I didn't already own a 360 i'd buy that Star Wars Kinect bundle, but that's because i'm a Star Wars geek :)

Gamestop and Best Buy run various bundle sales from time to time, so you might check for a good deal. Amazon as well.

I have EA Sports Active 2 & The Biggest Loser. Both have positives and negatives and tracking issues, but are decent workout games.

Dance Central can be fun too.

My xbox came with the Nike + game. The Nike + Game is not all that is advertise to be. IT's a good assessment tool of your abilities but it doesn't have the items to motivate you like some of the other games... Think about it before you spend your hard earn bucks!

From Flab to Fabulous!

I bought my kinect n Xbox used at a pawn shop because I'm the geeky tech girl who doesn't pay full price for anything.
I really love Zumba, kinect adventures, and the just dance or dance central games.
Only thing I suggest is getting a console with a hard drive, there is one out there that doesn't come with one.

When I got mine, it was bundle deal. I got the Xbox gaming console, Kinect, A FitBit, and two games. I got mine a little over a yr ago at Target. It was like $250 for the whole thing. The console came with a 4 gig hard drive that I changed out for a 350 gig hard drive. Not that I need that much space..but being somewhat of geek about these things, had to have the biggest HD I could get. I actually traded all my Wii stuff for the HD at Gamestop.

As to games..the only ones I have are the two that came with it (I don't recall what they are, I'm at work right now) and I bought Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2012 (I haven't been very good about using it lately though). I'm thinking about getting the Nike + game though.

My advice to see if there are any special deals running in your area right now. I love my Xbox...I just need to get back to using it!

I haven't had a game console in ages-so, I have decided to get an xbox kinect, however I am unsure of what to buy. Do I get a bundle, which model, any help would be much appreciated. and if, possible name a couple of your favorite games. I feel totally lost here!
