Kinect Review (Strategy Informer)

From Strategy Informer: "Okay, so we're not yet whizzing windows around an interactive touch-screen à la Minority Report, and we're certainly not about to head off to work in a hover-car, but the technology and the feel behind Kinect is simply staggering. Waggling a motion-control stick around is all well and good, but it cannot match the feeling of reaching out to the screen and selecting your required option just by holding your hand out, or watching a character on screen move in the exact same motion as yourself. There are a couple of sensitivity issues here and there, but these are easily forgiven." (Kinect, Xbox 360) 9.5/10

I can't wait to use this advanced tech hardware with Zune Music marketplace, man that new NXE feature is so bad ass and high quality advanced software service.

Wow..

Good score..similiar to Move..they liked the tech..some of the games will probably get smashed..

Should be interesting to see all the reviews come in..especially at the massive pre-hate this thing has received since last year's E3

Indeed, not long for UK's to wait now until we get our hands on it. Launch events seem to be going well in the US.

"but it cannot match the feeling of reaching out to the screen and selecting your required option just by holding your hand out"

This particular phrase is flame-bait! This was done with eyetoy as well. Whats neat are many other features and 3d depth tracking only done with Kinect. Can't wait to try it but no need to bring up Move"Waggling a motion-control stick around is all well and good" subliminal or not during Kinect launch just to dog it.

Is going to get good reviews same as the move but what matters is the games if they can’t deliver games even if they sell 10 million kinect and don’t have any games by next year kinect will only be getting dust in a forgotten corner of the room, Same thing will happen to the move if they don't have games…

Eerie sensation I had while.....
reading this review of Kinect...its as if I were....watching fox news for actual news and not morbid entertainment.

Somehow....many have forgotten that waving your hands in the air has been done before...and now its brand new.

It is not the technology of Kinect I have a problem with...its the insistence that this has never been done before when it HAS.
