And you can only appreciate this mini-light show through the magic of night-vision goggles. The light show is so the Kinect can determine where the player is in the space surrounding the device, or something. That, or Microsoft just wants to kill us slowly with cancer lights. Night-vision goggles allow you to Kinect the dots [Joystiq]
Everyone seems to be obsessing over the possibility of Activision adopting Battle.net for its games. It's an interesting notion, but Blizzard hasn't really spoken one way or the other on the topic. Perhaps this Gamasutra inte...

Congratulations, Phil Villarreal! You are the first person in the world to have broken your TV by playing Kinect. That seems to be record time, even faster than it took a Wiitard to break something. So how did it happen? Well...
