Sexy new Xbox 360 Kinect Bundle unboxing

Summary: As it turns out, my old Xbox red-ringed, so we brought the first Kinect back and bought the bundle. Sigh. Here's what the Kinect combo looks like.

    On the left side compartment, we have a power brick.
  • On the right side, we have a power cord. Bet you've never seen one of these bad boys before, eh?


    Okay, so here's the next nasty surprise. Notice this cable. Does it look like HDMI to you? Nope, me neither.
    The Xbox 360 Elite came with an HDMI cable which, if you don't buy them from Best Buy, can be actually cheap. And yet, no HDMI cable.
    We think this was a poor choice. Yes, it's the least common denominator, but it's time for Microsoft to fully embrace HD and sell the loser-people's video cable to those who insist on buying a Wii this holiday season.

    I like the bundle but why is ZDnet using a slideshow control that causes postbacks?
    • the whole slideshow thing is 100% idiotic

      @Mythos7 I pretty much don't read the slideshow posts anymore. I get tricked into looking at the first slide, but I'm not sitting there clicking and waiting for each boring slide to load. Just write a nice single page article with a few photos like normal people. Don't have time for this idiocy.

    HDMI isn't common just yet. In fact, my home doesn't have ONE TV (and only one computer) that can export or import HDMI video, so it's a waste for most people.<br><br>In about 10 years, when HDMI is STANDARD on all TV's, then HDMI cables only would be a good idea.

    What a cheap looking pile of plastic, and poor packaging job, it all looked 'thrown' into a box. That thing won't last a year under real use.
    • Real Use? Please understand the product

      before trolling about it. The Kinect sits on the stand, untouched.<br>You are mistaking it for a Wii style controller.<br><br>Did you actually belive that you held the Kinect in your hand to use it?<br>
