I really want to see Street Fighter on this thing.

You won't though or at least they won't be very good. It'll be games that you normally need a pad or another accessory with like the ones you see in that demo. There's a reason that the best games for the Wii have limited motion control.

$150 isn't bad considering you don't have to pay for extra controllers. Still, I would wait until they release some real games. What they offer right now is a joke.

Yeah, at least the Wii had some great games out of the gate. It's going to flop if they don't have a signature game to sell it on. They aren't going to sell it to families because they either have a Wii or don't have a system at all in which case it would be more likely they pony up 250 bucks for a Wii with additional controllers rather than 350 dollars for a 360 with additional controllers. It might be different if there was a game that really showed the advantage of the Kinect over the Wii but there isn't. The only people Microsoft can really market this to right now are 360 owners w/o a Wii and if they don't have a Wii they probably aren't interested in dropping $150 dollars for motion control.
