  • Summary: For the price, Microsoft Kinect will transform your Xbox from a serious gaming hub into a console capable of delivering spades of family fun. And there’s still so much potential in the sensing tech that we’re sure to see even more greatness in the future.

Microsoft Kinect

ITP.net
4 January 2011
  • Summary: Verdict: Kinect is a fantastic accessory that will extend the Xbox 360's user base to new audiences. That said, for the moment there's no killer game that will make the Xbox 360's current fan base run down to stores with their wallets. This is compounded by the fact that the Kinect on its own retails for US $190, almost the full retail price of the least expensive Xbox 360 console.
  • Pros: Exceptional tracking capabilities, even basic games are hugely fun when playing with friends and family, easy-to-setup.
  • Cons: You’ll need a lot of space and a well lit room for the best results, expensive, lacks a killer title at the moment.

The great leap forward

  • Conclusion: Kinect isn't a hardcore peripheral. Developers aren't going to be able to create the deep, compelling experiences hardcore gamers crave without the privilege of using buttons. However, if dancing or getting in shape is your passion, then Kinect is going to open up a whole new world of possibilities untouched by Wii or Move.

  • Excerpt: When Microsoft first announced Kinect in 2009, they promised a device that would do nothing short of showering players with miracles. Want to play a racing game? Hold your hands out in front of you, pretend you’re holding a steering wheel, and voilà! You’re playing a racing game. Not only would Kinect recognize faces and voices and allow gamers to hold invisible steering wheels, it would also do the Wii one better by exorcising the game controller from the experience...

Microsoft Kinect review

Boys' Life magazine
11 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Coming Soon: Look for a chance to win an Xbox 360 with Kinect in the January 2011 issue of Boys’ Life magazine. Microsoft’s Kinect was released to great fanfare, including a party in New York’s Times Square. But does the cool, high-tech camera that lets you play games without a controller really deliver the goods? It certainly does—with a few exceptions. Kinect itself looks really futuristic. And it’s easy to set up.

Canadian Reviewer

  • Excerpt: is a rare product because not only does it work 100 per cent as advertised, it exceeded everyone's expectations on the possibilities of true controller-free motion gaming.
