hum, this might seem like a good idea for asian parent who want to beat up their kids, but can't do it legally here in the U.S. But w/ kinect, it is possible.

Kinect may produce some physically and emotionally scarred kids. "why did mommy slap me so hard I fell over?"

i hope that fam get some law suit going on microsoft because your dad shouldnt knock you out while playing games.

Dac2u2451d ago

Yes, that's exactly what the gaming industry needs, more frivolous lawsuits.

TheLastGuardian2451d ago

"Now remember, I hit you because we were playing Xbox, and not because you went into my liquor cabinet and you threw away my cigarettes, you got it!!!!!"

Imperator2451d ago

Well, every game does tell you to give yourself elbow room... so I don't think they can sue. Still, I expect to see a LOT of kinect related injuries.

AllroundGamer2451d ago

always be sure to have a big house with a biig living room before buying Kinect, that should also stand in big letters on the box. :D

Nitrowolf22451d ago (Edited 2451d ago )

Holy F that had to hurt
another thing is why would you upload a video of your own son getting hurt?


It's still a Kinect related injury

r1sh122451d ago

Its the same with all motion devices, if you dont have space someone will get hurt.
