The Xbox 360 Kinect, a motion-based gaming add-on for the Xbox 360 has finally launched, just in time to make it onto Christmas wishlists -- and if we're lucky some Black Friday ads.

The Xbox 360 Kinect is a $150 device that connects to your Xbox 360 and allows you to play games and control system features with motion. The concept is similar to the Wii or PlayStation Move -- if you're familiar with either of those -- but instead of using a hand-held controller your body is the controller.
