The Future of Motion Controlled Video Games: What Do You Want?

I'm back from a fantastic holiday break! With the Microsoft Kinect and Sony's Playstation Move invading store shelves and many a gamers home this Holiday season, how many of you made the steep investment in the new age of motion controls? But, are truly glad you forked up all that hard-earned dough? Interactivity in the gaming world has certainly made its mark on the industry, but not nearly everyone is doing it...yet. I myself never (in the immediate future) plan on tossing cash at such a novelty item at this point in its development (yes, development); I don't think the world of gaming is ready, or advanced enough for motion controls yet. Looking down the road, would any of you die hard Call of Duty fans like to see motion controls implemented into the franchises' next installment? For me, the product would have to be flawless in every sense of the word. As it stands, it's extremely difficult enough  to compete competitively in online COD games as your average FPS gamer, and I reckon it would be even more difficult with faulty, slow response and cumbersome motion controls. Discuss!
