Wired Review: Flawed Kinect Offers Tantalizing Glimpse at Gaming’s Future

Wired: "Kinect always sounded a little too good to be true. The new motion controller for Xbox 360 uses an array of cameras and microphones to let a player control videogames using only body and voice, promising a new level of natural interactivity.

For gamers with an eye toward the future, Kinect is a fascinating proof of concept. Its use of infrared readings to put together a surprisingly accurate and responsive 3-D model of your body beats the pants off any previous camera-based controller."

WIRED Full-body tracking and cursor interfaces work surprisingly well. Voice commands come through clearly.

TIRED Sunshine kills Kinect. Some games require too much play space. Where the hell is Netflix?

The story is too old to be commented.

That's a pretty high score for something that's "Flawed".

He didn't sound to thrilled about button less game play or Kinect to begin with.
