According to one of the 3billion articles Ed has posted, and the latest issue of the mag (in short don't ask for a link, I'll never find it) the new Kinect is apparently a lot better than the first. For a start they've adjusted it so it doesn't need as much room, which is great news IMO as I've also got a small living room, and the new cameras also focus in infra red so having perfect lighting is no longer a requirement.
It apparently also works much closer to what MS originally announced for the first Kinect before the cost cutting so should (in theory) be able to recognise you rather than taking instructions from every passing stranger, or in my case the dog.
I'm pretty certain you can also turn it off, or at least turn it to the wall, but you do need to keep it connected
