KINECTsplosion: Microsoft Kinect Roundtable Discussion Edition!

Today we're mixing things up and changing to a roundtable discussion format in honor of the impending release of Kinect. Max Scoville, Tara Long, Jonathan Holmes, and Jon Carnage all huddle together around our tiny table and riff on the Microsoft Kinect. How does it compare to the Eyetoy, Wii, and Playstation Move? What are the launch titles like? Is its release an important moment in gaming? And most importantly, will it say that Jonathan and Tara are morbidly obese? The answer to all these questions and more on a brand new DESTRUCTOID!

The Kinect comes out tomorrow. Did you know that? Well, it's true. The motion sensing, body-judging device formerly known as Project Natal has finally hit the market for the whopping price of $150, and with a smattering of launch titles ranging from Biggest Loser to Sonic Freebase--er, Sonic Free Riders. Is it worth it?

Jonathan and Tara are joined by former co-hosts Max Scoville and Jon Carnage as they share their feelings on the device and the initial batch of titles. Are you gonna get one?
