Not seen a thread about this so thought I'd post this. Read a couple of links about this:

http://www.xboxic.com/news/1462
http://www.gamasutra.com/features/20060818/cifaldi_01.shtml

Some of the features of this look very cool - such as being able to wave infront of the camera during music visualisation



and the free game with the more expensive pack looks pretty fun. I wasn't going to get this but now I'm quite tempted. Specially as lots of online games are going to be updated to add support for it.

What do you guys think?

Yeah im defo going to buy it, should have a few fun party style games that can get fired on when the troops are round my house for a few beers. I like the idea of putting my big ugly coupon onto my player at the texas 5 card hold'em table on live aswell.

What bugs me about this is it doesn't matter wether you buy the basic or the full pack you get a headset and uno, both of which I've already got. I don't see why they are bundling the headset, as I understand it most people bought the premium pack so have one already. Leave it out and cut the cost! Same goes for uno, anyone who has already bought it, as cheap as it is can feel a little ****** its being given away now.

I'll just flog the headset and (assuming it's possible to do so) the UNO redemption card on eBay. I may even go for the premium set to get an extra year on Live on the cheap.

the rumble feature sounds a bit seedy. sending a vibration to the other persons controller by pressing the triggers?!?
i dont know, im likely to buy this for the novety, but doubt it'll get used.

people on my friends list: i do NOT expect any 'H3Y j00z UP 4 SME CYB3R!>!">??' messages with a pic of someone wanger waving being sent to me!!

Is not september 19th? Or is that just the launch date for the US? (Even though Walmart or Best Buy started selling them in the states earlier, last weekend).
