View Full Version : What did you break while playing Kinect?

08-12-2011, 10:15 AM
The first night I was playing Adventures I kicked our coffee table and knocked down two glasses, smashing one of them :eek:

So I was wondering what you guys have broken - or were close too - while playing a Kinect game? :boxer

08-12-2011, 11:54 PM
nothing broken yet but almost cracked my head on a beam in the roof while jumping up and down on kinect adventures and almost broke someones hand while i was doing some chopping on fruit ninja.

08-13-2011, 01:51 PM
i didnt break anything but i did kick our cat pretty hard.

08-14-2011, 02:00 PM
I broke my brother's nose playing Kinect Sports. So now we have agreed only one person playing Kinect at a time.

I usually move everything so very little risk of breaking anything. But the ceiling in my basement is pretty low so I did manage to crack it a bit and took out a light bulb. Kinect adventures doesn't do any favors to those with low ceilings.

08-17-2011, 01:01 AM
so far I have broken 2 toes, my nephews nose, my wrist, 4 cups and 2 plates playing kinect. It would take to long to explain how lol. I ended up kicking my poor dog and my poor cat as well, and of course tripped over the coffee table. I still of course play kinect every day because it is to fun not to play.

08-19-2011, 12:18 AM
Put my hand through a low hanging light while playing Dance Central (Poker Face "Torch" move)

08-19-2011, 01:54 AM
My Wrist, Was playing Kinect Sports. Scored the winner in soccer jumped with joy and hit my wrist on my ceiling fan. (It was summer and being 45C I had the fan on it's highest speed...)

I broke my spirit. After playing Wii so much when it first came out, I got used to barely having to move to do anything on screen. Now with Kinect you really have to move to kick a ball or nothing happens. The replay videos really crushed me lol.

08-19-2011, 04:40 PM
.... I ended up breaking six mirrors when i knocked my friend into them while playing Kinect adventures

... She wasn't too happy and it sooo wasn't worth the bad luck

LMAO........ Learn through experience huh?

So that's 6 mirrors = 7 years bad luck per mirror ...

So that's...

6 mirrors x 7 years = 42 years ...dang

i punched my 8 year old by accident while playing kinect adventures a while back. He yells DAAAAAAAAAD! He was more angry then hurt. Hes a big boy, a lil hit aint gonna hurt him!

09-01-2011, 06:49 PM
Nothing physical yet, although I did wallop my partner in the face playing Kinect Adventures...

Needless to say I didn't get away unharmed :p

09-01-2011, 11:07 PM
Nothing yet

09-02-2011, 04:42 PM
Nothing yet ... but reading this thread will mean the next time I do play on Kinect something WILL happen... -_-

09-02-2011, 10:31 PM
break nothing, yet. But re-organize the room to a chaotic state, yes

09-04-2011, 04:36 PM
Haven't broken anything yet, caught the lightbulb a few times but nothing major.

09-05-2011, 05:08 PM
Yet to break anything but playing some 2 player Fruit Ninja Kinect with my brother we did manage to hit our hands pretty hard going for the same Fruit... That is when we spread out a little bit more...

I haven't broken anything yet, but I did manage to kick my sister's cat. It wasn't my fault though. It just happened to cross my path when I was playing Kinect Adventures.

09-06-2011, 07:27 AM
I haven't got kinect, but these sound pretty funny... For me anyway. hehe.

09-07-2011, 04:37 PM
I haven't broken anything personally, but my friend brought it over the other night and broke the side of my coffee table, and then proceeded to step on his laptop and crack the screen. No more Dance Central. -.-

09-14-2011, 04:22 AM
Hit the ceiling fan. (didn't brack anything though) :)

Well I was at my friends house and I didn't know they were playing kinect and I walked into the room and they were jumping up and down and long story short one of them kicked me in the balls and the other idiot basically almost tackled me through the game shelf.

09-14-2011, 09:04 AM

A lampshade while flailing about (ie 'dancing') on DC.

09-24-2011, 07:57 AM
Nothing yet, although embaressed last weekend playing hole in the wall and the neighbour's came home to see me leaping around the room!!

09-24-2011, 09:42 AM
My glass coffee table. That was NOT fun to clean up. Think I am still finding pieces even now.

09-24-2011, 02:41 PM
Stepped on my gf's foot and she was in alot of pain.

09-24-2011, 06:08 PM
I tore up my carpet pushing my reclining sofa back and forth so I could play kinect. Replaced the carpet and stopped playing kinect. Now I got the zoom and it works for me so i can start playing again.

09-24-2011, 08:18 PM
Ha I've almost broke my girl friends nose but I've only broken a lamp so far.

09-25-2011, 08:20 PM
I've knocked a glass from out of my mates hand while my other half almost broke a bookcase that was half way across the room, he was showing off and went flying, it was rather funny.

09-26-2011, 09:44 PM
My dignity.

09-27-2011, 02:06 AM
My cat and my ankle - he attacked my leg while playing and we both fell. We're fine and the vet said that he'll be sore for a few days. I have a mild sprain. :(

09-27-2011, 02:36 AM
was playin on kinect lookin at the telly and stepped on my cat i went flyin backwards and went through glass coffee table, was up hospital for 4 hours gettin glass out of my back, got some pretty impressive scars tho

09-27-2011, 04:10 PM
This topic makes me lol !

Seriously, I do not have kinect, but I enjoy reading about your broken noses and other stuff !

09-28-2011, 04:55 AM
Luckily, I haven't broken anything yet - key word being 'yet'. *knocks on wood*

EDIT: Btw, awesome stories hahaha. This thread makes me giggle hehe. Some battle scars y'all got now! Hah! I've now made a mental note to avoid ever putting a glass table in a room where I intend to play kinect (or any motion sensor game/console) haha!

10-24-2011, 01:36 AM
havent broke a thing :woop:

10-24-2011, 01:38 AM
Nothing, I'm a good gamer and follow directions. I clear my game space before playing... and make sure it is an ample amount of room to jump, kick, punch, bounce etc etc.

10-28-2011, 02:02 PM
I broke my toe playing football on kinect sports.:(

11-13-2011, 05:58 PM
My niece got carried away with Kinect Adventures, jumped so high she hit her head on the light.

Nothing broken, but I was filming it at the time :)

11-28-2011, 05:24 AM
While playing the rafting on kinect adventures I jumped and slammed my foot on the coffee table

11-28-2011, 02:10 PM

11-28-2011, 02:47 PM
I broke my lamp while playing kinect adventures;(

12-06-2011, 07:24 PM
A vase with flowers in it, my gf was pissed, I told her "it's ok it's kinect".

12-11-2011, 12:07 PM
Not broken anything but the Kinect broke me, after an hour or so jumping around like an idiot it creases me, didn't realise I was so unfit :) and the snap shots mid game, well say no more.

12-12-2011, 02:54 AM
Nothing ... yet... (I think it's only a matter of time!)

01-02-2012, 07:37 PM
I did the same thing

01-02-2012, 07:38 PM
i did the same thing once

01-02-2012, 09:08 PM
Close to knocking the lights off the ceiling and also knocked a precious bauble off the Christmas tree (thankfully didn't break, though)

01-02-2012, 09:15 PM

01-03-2012, 01:22 AM
Knocked over a beer, smashed knuckle into steel support pole, and accidently whacked my dog in the head playing Dance Central. Nothing major (yet). Waiting until I take out the can light in the 7 foot basement.

Nothing serious broken yet although my friend is lucky he didn't break any bones or my TV. He kicked the edge of a big heavy rug while playing Kinnect soccer and came very close to face-planting my big screen TV. Fortunately it was caught on the highlights at the end :)

01-19-2012, 03:59 AM

01-27-2012, 01:29 PM

01-29-2012, 03:14 AM

01-30-2012, 08:10 PM
My other half's Xbox.

He bought it really cheap from a boot sale with the proviso it freezes all the time, but when we got it home it played everything I threw at it.
Then, clever me, decided to bring my kinect round because there's more room at his than mine, and BANG.
No more cheap 360.

01-31-2012, 10:26 PM
I haven't broken anything yet, but I have fallen on my butt a couple of times.

02-03-2012, 09:02 AM
Do broken bones count? I kicked the corner of the radiator and I think i've broken a couple of toes.

02-03-2012, 01:04 PM
I broke my ankle. Kicked my doggy, which bits me in return ! I also had broken some glassware & the curtain pelmet.

02-04-2012, 09:54 AM

02-05-2012, 11:53 PM

The only thing that has suffered with my kinect playing is my own hand on my ceiling fan from kinect sports.

03-07-2012, 07:03 PM
My neck.
Playing Adventures.
I got so into it, I leaped to the left,
diving into someone sitting on the sofa.

03-10-2012, 06:06 AM
I haven't broken anything, but I accidentally hit my friend's dog a couple of times as he walked past.

03-14-2012, 07:27 PM
I broke a sweat. That's about it.

03-16-2012, 02:02 AM
Stepped on the cats a few times.

07-30-2012, 02:28 PM
i broke aa glass playing kinect sports

08-05-2012, 05:08 PM
I haven't broken anything, but I've had a pulled muscle twice, and will sometimes do it until I'm sore. I played Star Wars Kinect so much on Thursday that today (Sunday) is the first time I'm using Kinect again.

I haven't broke anything yet, but have had a few close calls with the bookshelf that holds most of the games - its just within the swing range and I've smashed my knuckles against it a few times.

My hubby on the other hand almost broke his neck but getting his foot caught on the edge of the area rug :/

08-14-2012, 04:20 AM
Killed the coffee table

08-14-2012, 08:12 AM
I haven't broken anything yet.

08-14-2012, 01:47 PM
The Kinect itself. While playing Micro 5 Challenge or whatever it's called...all the jumping knocked the Kinect off the top of my TV and it broke the white ball where the sensor sits on the stand. Now it wobbles there...it was due to a stupid wood floor we had with weak foundation or something, because others have said they had no such issues with wood floors. All I know is that everything shook whenever you jump...and I'm not heavy, only 160 some odd pounds.

We have carpet in this new place, nothing shakes upon jumping so I was able to finish the game off.

08-22-2012, 07:53 PM
me and the wife were playing beach volleyball on kinect sports and she jumped up to hit the ball and knocked the light off the ceiling, it was hanging down by the wires

12-02-2012, 05:51 PM
when my brother first got his kinect he broke the kinect itself because it wasnt tilting and he thought he could tilt it himself, of course that broke it.
Luckily this was before the kinects came out because my brother got a chance to be one of beta testers for it so he got that one for free

12-03-2012, 04:03 PM
i have not broken one thing because the only reason i got the kinect was to see how it improved mass effect 3 and to my amazement i still found myself using the controller because it has been drilled into my head over my years of gaming

12-06-2012, 11:06 PM
A pint glass with some water in it as I stretched my arm to my side.

01-09-2013, 06:38 AM
I play in my basement I'm not tall but I can jump high enough to hit my hands on the roof damn volleyball.

did my arm so stoped playing fruit ninja .

01-28-2013, 01:16 PM
According to that - sounds like fun :P But i'm thinking if all of it going ok? I mean - does your game's character moves exactly like you? Isn't it slower or something like that?

01-28-2013, 01:37 PM
I haven't broken anything. I lightly smacked my wife once and kicked the couch, but neither were major. I just usually end up sore for about 2 days.

01-30-2013, 10:28 PM
My wifes crappy chandela.. Whilst jumping...! , i did warn her

02-01-2013, 06:13 PM
I broke a vase when playing discus on Kinect sports.

02-05-2013, 10:21 PM

02-09-2013, 02:55 AM
Just my spirit...

And my kid's spirits - when I accidentally knock them over...

02-24-2013, 10:47 PM
I broke my lamp on the desk... oops and this was when I was doing Kinect Adventures on the boat where you jump up move left and right haha

03-13-2013, 10:05 AM
I did manage to punch my sisters light fixture while playing star wars kinect

03-13-2013, 09:30 PM
Didnt break anything, but close. I was playing Rabbids Alive & Kicking and doing the head banging challenge. I threw my head forward too quickly and something made a loud pop in my lower back.
I couldnt move for several days and had to use a crutch if had no choice. I was in agony for about 2 -3 weeks :/

Havent used the Kinect since. :D

03-18-2013, 02:16 AM
Seeing how I am 6 foot tall, I haven't broken anything but I would like to hope I don't.

04-01-2013, 05:06 PM
Luckily nothing physical. Just strained my arms and legs a lot.

04-21-2013, 10:59 PM
I haven't broken any items but I have accidentally bonked my bf in the face during Happy Action Theater.

04-24-2013, 12:38 PM
Oh, I play safely but you made it a hit of laugh on gaming, lots of laughing.

04-25-2013, 02:52 PM
My pride (just kidding :p)
Played it once at a friends house. Did not break anything, but not good at that kind of game :p

04-26-2013, 04:03 AM
I was playing Kinect Adventures and did a squat for one of the mini-games. I landed my right ass into the edge of my coffee table, causing spilled blood and a torn pair of boxers, which my wife sewed back eventually.

04-28-2013, 05:11 AM
Nothing as of yet. Thankfully!

04-30-2013, 12:49 AM
Not actually broken, but when playing the table tennis on Kinect Sports 1 I got used to playing holding my actual table tennis bat (cos it feels wierd just using your hand - I used to play a lot and it's hard to judge with just your hand) and one time I had some mates over for a gaming session and we tried to play a vs game with both of us using real bats - I went for a huge hit and managed to catch my mate's knuckles with my bat and he dropped to the floor in massive pain; needless to say that was the end of our kinect gaming for the day cos he was in agony for the next few hours and we stuck to controller-only games...

As for injuring myself, almost every time I play I end up sore for a few days, & the first time I did the fitness test on UFC personal trainer I was in pain for about a week (yes I'm hella unfit) and that put me off it and I've never really gone back with any regularity... Fruit ninja always does my shoulders in too!

06-19-2013, 12:31 AM
I I smashed lamp while jumping on a pontoon in the game that came with the console;)

06-19-2013, 09:49 PM

I broke a pinky toe stumbling into my mom's living room table on the first night I used Kinect. Haven't used the Kinect since because my apartment is too small and I live above someone.

Still, that pinky couldn't fit into a shoe for almost a week!

10-04-2013, 09:06 AM
I broke my dog...

I was attempting to kick my virtual opponent in the face and the dog decided to venture in front of me.

Took him to the vet cause he was limping a lot, but he turned out its fine. He stays away when we have the xbox on now though

11-11-2013, 07:35 AM
I broke my mom's flower pot thing, and almost took my friends ceiling fan out of the roof when it caught my hand
