Totemball Dances onto Xbox Live Arcade 10/4/06

Playing with your Xbox Live Vision camera just got a little physical now that "TotemBall" is coming to Xbox Live Arcade. The gesture-based game uses Xbox Live Vision to control the characters in the game. Help Pterry the Pturtel uncover all the musical totems while grooving to your own "totem" beat. The game is offered for FREE on Xbox Live Arcade, starting Wednesday, October 4 at 0800 GMT (1 am PDT).


When the ancient Ptolmec tribe simultaneously discovered gunpowder and barbeque, the explosive results scattered their musical totems across the jungle! Now Pterry the Pturtle must roll over mountains, cross islands, scale pyramids, and battle giant pinball games to retrieve the lost totems and bring music back to the party.


With high-definition graphics, Xbox Live Vision camera compatibility, Xbox Live Achievements and Leaderboards, this next-gen title provides hours of fun.

"TotemBall" includes multiple game modes including:

TotemBall – Camera-controlled platforming gameplay – gamers control the characters in the game by moving their hands in the air and gesturing in front of the camera
* Juggling - Co-op juggling game with one player using Xbox Live Vision and the other player "juggling" totems with the controller
* Pinball - Play any of the bonus pinball tables that have been unlocked through regular TotemBall play
* Freeplay – Explore the game with no time pressure and infinite lives – great mode for kids
* Super Challenge – Play the entire game with one life and a time limit in each level
* TotemJam – Freely mix and match the game's musical totems – another fun exploration game for kids

so that is going to be our game this wednesday? totemball, a game that was suppose to be out on Sept 19? I don't know, I hope they got this fixed because I heard rumors on the inside of MS that the games detection ablitity kind of sucked.

First console to have full degree's of motion sensing in games. WOW. This game should be fun. Thanks Microsoft. Keep pushing the next gen in the right direction. Everyone talks about what they are doing in the next gen...but you are delivering before the competition is. you can't copy when you are first. When I bought the 360...I had no idea that it would eventually display 1080p...I had no idea I would have next gen movie format, I never knew that there would be a camera that enables face mapping in games and voice recognition in games and full degree's of motion sensing in games. All prior to the competition. Thats called underpromising and Over delivering. WOW
