"Tomorrow, on November 4th, Microsoft’s controller-free gaming device for Xbox 360, Kinect, will be released in the United States, and with the launch, an entirely new way to play and experience the world of videogames will open up.
Microsoft is referring to Kinect as a platform launch in and of itself, basically on the scale of the company’s Xbox and Xbox 360 launches before it, and it’s no wonder!
With a price of $149.99/£129.99/€149.99 (and R1999 in South Africa), this is no simple peripheral or wimpy extra – the launch of Kinect is akin to the release of one of those whacky console add-ons that seemed like such a good idea in the 90s, only this is much more important than SEGA's 32X could ever be.
And Kinect isn’t whacky at all. But it is an investment in your future gaming sessions, as well as an investment in the future of gaming.
Is it a future worth investing in?"
