    I was not sure about the kinect but had a quick go on my friends kinect playing kinect adventure for 10 mins and enjoyed it. I want to get one for Xmas and best deal I have seen so far is kinect sports and dance central with the kinect £184. Is that the best deal about?
    I want to put the sensor on the wall, do I have to drill holes in the wall?

    I have a 120GB elite do I have to buy the power cable or do I get one with the kinect? Does the wall mount need to be drilled to the wall?

    I'd check ASDA out as they have some pretty cheap prices and I'm sure they were doing 2 of the Kinect games for £60.

    Gamestation were doing it at RRP of £129.99 but offering one of the new games that have just come out (non Kinect, NFS maybe) for £20.

    Thanks I have NFS already. Would I need to buy a power cable or will it come with the kinect?

    Sorry I can't answer that.

    Not sure if it was definitely NFS, it was one of the latest games anyway.

    I think argos are doing the best deal as they give you sports and adventure together

    the standalone kinect comes with a power supply, the bundled kinect with 360 slim doesn`t have one.

    That's a good deal, but they have no stock at the moment.

    I tweeted Shopto asking if they would have them back in before Christmas and was told they would.

    Nothing against Shopto as they are good, but they will say that wont they. They dont want you to shop elsewhere.
    Keep an eye out in supermarkets as my local Sainsburys (has a small electronic section) had a couple in last week.

    Ha, I guess you are right.

    Looking to get a Kinect with Dance Central and Kinect Sports. Maybe the Sonic game too.

    First 2 are brilliant. I played the Sonic game demo and the lag on it is quite off putting.

    The best deal I found was with John Lewis, that was the kinect, joy ride and dance central for £187.10 to be exact. Although they have the Kinect solo in stock and you can buy just Joy ride for £26.20 so both for £156.15.

    Try searching for kinect stock checker, there is quite a few handy sites - I used http://www.kinectpricescompared.co.uk

    Thanks for your help guys. I went for the kinect bundled with kinect sports and dance central for £184 which I didn't think was too bad.

    Picked one up in Sainsburys today.

    £149.99 for Kinect and 1 selected game, which included dance central, sports and a few others.

    With a second game £32 it totalled £182 so slightly under Argos.
