Released in November of 2010, the Xbox Kinect is the newest and latest video game platform released from Microsoft. The Kinect enables game users to interact with the Xbox 360 without any need to touch or use a game controller. Commands are given through using certain gestures, speaking, or with the presentation of certain objects. Players can now use their body to interact with games. New games released for the Kinect sensor allow gamers to have full control. Many have said that this is the new and improved competitor for the Wii MotionPlus for the Wii and also the Playstation Move for the Playstation 3.
The Kinect is a separate sensor piece that needs to be purchased separately from the Xbox 360. It features such technology as a depth sensor and RGB camera. This technology provides 3d motion capture, facial recognition, and voice recognition capabilities. The camera is able to pivot to follow the user and keep them in frame when they are moving. Another great plus to having the Kinect with the Xbox 360 is the ability to have a headset free chat over Xbox live since the sensor has the capability to conduct ambient noise suppression. No more fighting with the headset while in the middle of an intense multiplayer match on the Xbox live!
The Xbox Kinect is a great addition to the Xbox 360 family. It allows all types of gamers to have fun. Hardcore gamers to casual ones, the ability to play a video game controller free will be and can be fun and appealing.
