It most certainly doesn't.
There's a whole subforum dedicated to the Xbox here...if people only want to cheerlead the platform, or talk about news and games without any general debate getting in the way....then make those threads. Then all this back and forth about kinect would actually be off topic.
The "official" thread is a catch all. Good luck to anyone who tries to dictate the direction of the conversation in there, because nothing about the xbox is off topic.
