@LarryM99: did you eventually handover the Kinect to your nephew?!! Seriously, I would like to do a teardown of the motion sensing SOC from PrimeSense. Perhaps they can integrate more functions into this SoC to reduce/eliminate the board foot print of other components? This is one area where there will be growth in the coming years via chip stacking. Dr. MP Divakar

What is the Marvell "camera interface controller" (which looks to me like an ARM application processor - with 64 Mbytes of DDR2 - and also a heat sink, see the iFixit teardown) for? I thought the PrimeSense chip and subsystem does basically everything needed internally, yet the Kinect has, in addition to the PrimeSense subsystem, a USB hub and (what appears to be) a second, quite powerful processor. Colour me confused.

Since Kinect is the first thing on every holiday shopper's list, probably Microsoft has done something excellent. Finally Primesense is getting prime coverage !!!

I had the impression Canesta's 3D image sensor was the heart of the sensor suite on Kinect - perhaps next generation?

Really? What problems are you experiencing with your 360? If yours isn't working, why have you not returned it for repair? We have 4 XBox (1 x v1, 3 x 360) in our house and only one has ever failed. Returned it to MS and a week later we had a repaired XBox with an extended warranty. FWIW, we bought our family an early XMas present this year - our Kinect. It has been an absolute smash-hit so far and has made us all ache and sweat more than I ever thought a video games console would :)

With a BOM costing $56 not sure if they can still reduce the size and make it more appealing. Lets see.
