Microsoft Kinect


Microsoft Kinect is soon to be released, and I have to say that no one is excited.

I've watched many videos over the years looking at the production of this piece of hardware and as a separate piece of technology it is impressive but with the xbox it just ruins the image. I understand Microsoft's desire to take what the other consoles have and make it better but they made a camera that interacts with you on the Xbox 360. The Xbox 360 is not an interactive exercise console, that's called a Wii, the xbox 360 is for FPS for the most part considering that the genre owns almost 90% of the Xbox live community, not counting arcade.

Once you get a Kinect you will also have to accommodate for the room you will need to play these games. They all require almost full body movement and more than likely I can see some kicks to the coffee table at your side.

I can't fully make fun of Microsoft's attempt for motion capture because they are looking ahead in terms of how to interact with games, but as it stands I have not heard of any games looking to fully adapt with this piece of technology to make it Kinect friendly.

I'm not excited, since it's kind of like a step over to the Wii after people were makin' fun of it...but hey! Keep optimistic. Maybe it'll end up kickass. Maybe not.

The idea of it is amazing, but we'll just have to see how well it actually works.
