Buying an Xbox Kinect

Written by dad - One Comment

This is just a quick note to say that I’ve ordered an Xbox Kinect as a Christmas gift for the kids… Or maybe it was for me? I guess time will tell. 🙂 After reading some reviews, I’ve been thinking that a Kinect would make a cool gift, but I’m not crazy about getting up at the crack of dawn and waiting in line to buy one.

Last night, however, I struck gold. While doing a bit of Christmas shopping at Amazon, I decided to check Kinect availability on a whim. Well, guess what? They had it in stock, and with free shipping to boot!

I’ve actually had pretty good luck snagging hot Christmas gifts at Amazon in the past. You just have to be persistent and check in a few times per day. Nonetheless, I was surprised to see it there. After a quick bit of hand wringing, I added it to my cart and headed to checkout.

While the Kinect ships with a game called Kinect Adventures, I also picked up Kinect Sports. On top of that, I subsequently ordered a copy of Kinectimals for our younger kids.

Anyway… If you’ve been wondering where to buy an Xbox Kinect, now you know where to look… Amazon. Last I checked, they were out of stock again, though you can still get one through one of their third-party sellers for a $25 premium.

  1. We just got the x-box 360. Haven’t added the kinect yet. It will probably be much easier to get this holiday season!
