Lookout, It’s an Xbox Christmas

You would think with both a Wii and PS3 we would have enough gaming paraphernalia in our home. Well, you’re wrong of course. After my kids and I experienced the new Kinect from Xbox we were eager to add it to our collection. Thank goodness Santa pulled through (gotta love that guy). It was easy to set-up, though we had to find our own HDMI cable since the console doesn’t include one, and the kids were right into it.

We didn’t get any games but the Kinect bundle comes with the Adventure game so we could start playing right away. And the kids did and have been playing since Christmas morning. It’s amazing to see how active my kids can get playing a video game. Gone are the stereotypes of sitting slouched on the couch building up callouses on the thumb. Now I need to get a faster camera.

      It’s great Sharon. My son quickly figured out how to fake it on the Wii but it’s hard to fake with Kinect. It’s crazy to see them get right into the games.
