Kinect, the motion-sensing peripheral for the Microsoft Xbox 360, hits store shelves this week. The device, originally known as Project Natal, will go head-to-head against the Sony PlayStation Move, which is already reportedly selling well.

The Kinect, he gushes, "is an absolute pleasure to have in the home. Much more importantly, it's a reliable one.
