It’s Expensive to be a Nerd this week

The Goonies 25th Anniversy addition was my first buy this week:

Goonies Bluray!

I also somehow missed that the Harry Potter 3 & 4 Ultimate Editions came out like two weeks ago.  Fuck my Life.

Then of course there is Microsoft’s new Kinect add on for the Xbox 360 & Dance Central.  That’s right i’ll be jammin to some Lady Gaga this week!

Dance Central

Is Microsoft afraid of Negative Kinect Reviews?

This is never a good sign, read from the bottom up:

Andy then adds it’s a troubling sign, while I agree…  I also think the industry is primed to shit on Move & Kinect (Move already took a beating from GI).  The market Kinect is going for may not sync well with traditional game reviewers.  Kinectimals may be a bust (who knows) with GI but the 6 year old it’s intended for will likely love Skittles (Kinectimal Tiger).  So I can understand some apprehension, but in the end Skittles has to walk the line.
