In case you're interested in the evolution of Kinect 2.0, here is an article on time-of-flight, as well as a video of how the Kinect2.0 overcomes some of the limitations seen in the 360's implementation.

Canada has Xbox One kiosks across the country - in Best Buys and Future Shops.

The one near me has a dev kit, and is pretty much limited to one lap in Forza around Laguna Seca with one of five cars. At least they had their "ambassador" people there who knew some of the ins and outs. They need a second controller for the Killer Instinct demo - and both the Kinect sensor and the UI is basically limited nothing worth seeing.

tl;dr : If you want to hold a controller, you can go do so. Just don't expect much from the product kiosk.

I'm hoping the local stores around here start having demo kiosks soon.  Not that they'll change my mind, but it'd be nice to get a general feel for the controllers.

they were here in town, but when I heard they only had Forza and Killer Instinct I was bummed.  I only want Forza with a wheel and KI with a fight stick. frown

Yeah it was good. I liked the Mech running loose and the way they showed off the video chat tech. If the video chatting works as good as they make it look in that commercial then I could definitely see myself using it. I'll just have to make sure that Ceekay isn't on my friends list. I don't need any late night chats where he's wearing his thong.

Notice the chick's hands when controlling the movie section. The hand gestures seem to be more intuitive (she "grabs" with a fist and can scroll).
Commercial bullshot, or interface peek?

of course I'm speaking for myself, but when I use the Kinect controls on the 360 I find myself doing the same thing.  I just have to make sure I'm wearing the thong, because it can also pick up random waggly bits.

To be honest I feel this is the smart play, both Sony and MS have histories of over promising and under delivering.  Wish I was smart but I am going to keep both on order but the PS4 order is on life support at the moment due to lack of release day games I want to play.

I would have kept the ps4 if watchdogs wasn't delayed.  That was really the only game I wanted to play, and was willing to wait to try others after Christmas.  But I'm still plugging away on GTAV, Assassins Creed and Splinter Cell. 

I'm now debating wheter to cancel my BF4 preorder for the PC...  WTF is wrong with me.  I'm never this smart with my money.

I'm having a bad feeling about the launch of BF4 on the PC, I have the feeling the launch is going to be a trainwreck a la SimCity.

Most likely the Madcatz one, I just wish they would announce prices for the wheel and stick already so I can preorder.

looks like they finally got their fightstick listed.  wish they had a generic looking one without the artwork.
