Microsoft’s new XBox Kinect is sure to have parents waiting in lines over Christmas in order to score one for their kids. The Xbox Kinect will take video games to a whole new level, and will even give the Nintendo Wii a run for it’s money.
The Xbox Kinect does not use traditional video game controllers, in fact, it doesn’t use hand-held controllers at all. It has a camera system that detects players’ movements and and voices.
The Xbox Kinect will give players experiences such as racing cars, petting live animals and watching themselves do it on screen, and even working out with “virtual trainers.”
Microsoft is already marketing the XBox Kinect to kids with the help of Nickelodeon and Disney. It’s sure to be “the” item to have as far as holiday wish lists go!
