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.
  • 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.

  • 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.
