Xbox Kinect: Users Review Chances Of Buying In UK

By Posted 7 Nov 2010, 16:06

The Microsoft Kinect will be released in a couple of days here in the UK, but what are the chances of finding anywhere with some stock? The Kinect has received some favorable reviews since it was launched in the US, but there could be shortages on launch day.

A member of Xboxhome has done some research into stock levels on many major online retailers. It was found that most had no stock. These included the likes of Asda, Amazon, Tesco, ShopTo, HMV, Play, and Zavvi. Some stock was found at Game and Gamestation but both have limited stock listed.

It may prove to be difficult to get hold of a Kinect before Christmas, so will mean that the short term resell value will be high. Maybe you could pre-order a couple of extra units as many people on eBay are often willing to pay a premium to get their hands on the latest tech.

Have you got a Kinect on pre-order?

    favourable reviews? most of the websites reviews I saw said that Kinect was technologically limited, Menu and dashboard was clumsy and most of the games were mediocre.

    Sigh first poster fanboy, yes Kinect has recived some very favourable reviews (You know I I really did belive that the fanboys would not also infest the Kinect and Move addons but it seems they do not know how to stop) and there is demand for it.
    It also scored higher in the game reviews than any other motion controller launch titles.

    I think GAME have some stock –

      You sound like more of a fanboy than he did, and at least his information was accurate.
