Hi, did anybody pre-ordered the Kinect from Microsoft store India web site? They told that they will deliver it on or before 19th Nov, but the status still showing Undelivered. Does anybody has a different experience ?

Thanks

Amazon lists the same (new) for $350. I have pre-ordered it from MS India (Microsoftstore.co.in) for 23,000/-.
As Xbox's console's harware failure rate is high, I didn't explored the option of getting it from US. I feel it is too risky.
Anyway, with pre-order from MS India site, I am getting Dance Central game for free ($47) and a T-shirt from Puma.
Also 25% discount on Sports Active 2 (It's kind of Wii Fit with some extra accesories). It is yet to be released and is priced $97. So 25% discount on this make it very close to US price.

EDIT : Important : I think, the extra goodies (Dance Central, T-Shirt and Discount) are not available if one purchases directly from MS web site. I got this offer from MS with a unique coupen code to apply at checkout (may bcoz I am a MSDN subscriber?, not sure). So please double check about offers.

Thanks
Satya

hi
The XBOX 360 4Gb that comes with the Kinect bundle offer is available for INR 23K (5% cash back if you shop with Mastercard) in Gurgaon Reliance Digital store. U get Kinect Adventure alongwith the package in the same price.

The 4Gb is internal flash... this does not have HDD. You can connect external HDD thru front side USB.

The drive is a Region 5 DVD drive.. the one that is sold in India.
there's no BlueRay drive capability.. but it will play DVD and CD and play media files from either the DVD or the USB HDD...
hope this helps...

to be honest I am not sure.. I have two XBOX kinect game DVDs. Kinect Adventure and the other is Dance Central... so far have not hit a memory issue while saving game data.. I have turned off the photo and video feature of the games.

Not tried to download from XBOX Live yet. But I saw that the Demo games are typically .3 to .5Gb .. few are ~1 Gb.

I was told by the store guy that I can connect a USB external drive and download and store games there.. But I am not sure if that would work or XBOX would expect games to be launched from the internal flash always..
wonder if anyone else here can clarify...
