Microsoft’s new gaming phenomena, the Kinect is storming people’s homes at a rapid rate. The controller free simulation platform is proving to be a massive hit this Christmas with many people sure to be putting it at the top of their wish list. Microsoft’s new gaming revelation (under their Xbox counterpart) is set to re-shape the future of the gaming world. It manages to interact you with the system in the sense that it is user friendly and futuristic at the same time. Futuristic in the sense that no controllers are needed. The fact that the Xbox Kinect recognizes your body’s movements and also has a highly technical voice recognition software inbuilt enables you to operate the game-play making it a fun experience for you and your friends without having the problem of not having enough controllers. As mentioned, controllers will not be needed in future due to the new technology advancements the gaming world seem to be developing.
We should pay tribute to the Nintendo Wii console which originated a similar sort of version, where it recognizes controller movements. You still have to use a controller to operate the game. With Microsoft’s Xbox Kinect, all you have to do is speak out loud and the game runs smoothly.
The new gaming phenomena from Microsoft is only compatible on their Xbox 360 console. You are able to purchase both the console and the Kinect in a deal package from various shops online including Wal-Mart and Amazon.
Prices for the product are around $150 in the U.S and £130 in the U.K.
The Xbox 360 Kinect is likely to be a massive hit this Christmas so be sure to snap yours up, as it’s a great gift for any family member or friend.
