Microsoft Kinect

Natal No More, Microsoft Unveils ‘Kinect’ - Digits - WSJ

Saw a brief demo of this a few months back and it was pretty impressive

Re: Microsoft Kinect

Should be interesting. Not sure how it will translate to the hardcore gamers, but it's a logical response to Nintendo's Wii.

Re: Microsoft Kinect

Is it still having trouble detecting dark skin tones?

From my experience, it wasn't a problem

Re: Microsoft Kinect

One of the producers demoing it today during microsofts presentation was African American and his demo went perfectly. I'm psyched for the media aspect of this alone and if any games catch my eye that's cool 2.

And ESPN on my 360!!!! Awesome!!

Re: Microsoft Kinect

They've changed up the XBox 360 as well:

Surprise! Slimmed down, quieter, black Xbox 360 launches this week - Plugged In - Yahoo! Games

Glad to see they added the integrated wireless card.

It sucks for us early investors especially since its a different hard drive style and am I the only one who thinks the design is fugly? It looks like it was designed by Alienware which is cool for computers but looks odd for a console.

I like the slimmed down look myself. Not that the look matters much anyway.

As far as the early investors the console is 5 years old now. If someone was able to hold out this long god bless 'em.
