    WOO! Australia! i don’t care for kinect, nothing on the horizon seems to interest me on it, as for Move, well for half the price it comes with a single controller, an Playstation eye (i need it for chatting after i lost my blue tooth headset) a game & a demo disk & it’ll cost me a further $60 if i want a second controller if i feel like being social, oddly the Dualshock3′s RRP is the same as the Move starter pack, WTF Sony >_>
    Alo to note, you Brits are paying 30 more quid than us overcharged Aussies, though right now it’s only 22 more quid than us, i’m talking the average exchange rate, right this second, 1 aussie dollar buys 57 British, eh cents? what the hell do you guys use??

    I don’t think I’ll ever get over how ugly Kinect is. Surely someone around the table at the design meetings said something.
