  1.  11 reasons why I enjoyed the kinect experience

    Posted: 

    Having used the Kinect I have to say that the Kinect is revolutionary future proof and fun to play. Here are 11 reasons why I enjoyed the kinect experience

    Easy to set up. Kinect is easy to set up. You do not have to worry about charging up a controller for one and recalibrate the controller every time you want to play.

    Hey no controller. Yes it is obvious but i still cannot help but keep repeating that it is easier to play games without a controller rather than hanging on to one and pressing buttons while playing a controller.

    More than one person can play on the same unit. Yep the Kinect costs more but if you want to play against a friend you dont have to buy another controller

    Your entire body comes into play. (full body motion tracking) Playing by basically moving your hands to playing with your entire body not really a contest in my opinion. You cannot manipulate movements which just spoils the game.

    Simple interface. The utter absence of any buttons to press makes Kinect easier to use for the whole family. You dont need to keep track of all the buttons on the controller to ensure that you do everything right.

    Social networking integration. We love the fact that you can make a video of yourself playing on the Kinect and send it to your social networks via Xbox Live and KinectShare.

    Video Kinect allows you to video chat with friends from their TVs using the new Video Kinect feature. Not only can you video chat from Xbox to Xbox you can also video chat with your Messenger friends and family from your TV set to their PC or Mac with a webcam.

    Compatibility Works with any xbox 360

    Speech Recognition With Kinect you can control your Xbox 360 console by using your voice. To use Kinect voice commands you start by saying the word Xbox. Then say what you want to do e.g. play Disc

    Face Recognition facial recognition is used for automatically identifying users

    The Future The kinect is the future of gaming The Wii was obviously the first step in that direction a controller that looks like a remote control the Playstation Move is just a copy of the Wii but I think the future is about having a complete handsfree solution for the living room
