06/17/2010, I have jumped in front of an Xbox 360 and tried Microsoft’s Kinect motion control system (formerly known as Project Natal) with Kinect Sports, Driving and Dancing Central. I do “ok” at bowling, but I’m clearly a lame dancer… meh. Anyway, the goal of this exercise is to report on how good Kinect is as a game controller, and the results are quite good – with a few caveats. Kinect […]
06/14/2010, We got our hands on the Xbox 360 and here are the real-world images of the beast. First surprise: it looks better than it did during the press event. It has a piano black finish that is exquisite – just like your HDTV (we hope for you). The new design is very cool – literally. The cooling design has been much improved with tons of ways to let air enter […]
06/14/2010, Sports fans who own an Xbox 360 should be quite happy to hear that Microsoft has signed a deal with ESPN to bring ESPN to the Xbox, giving you 3500 live sporting events, many of them in HD. To make things more fun, when watching a game, you can even pick a side, and you’ll even be entertained (during those boring moments) with trivia questions that you can answer. This […]
06/14/2010, We’ve been waiting for it, and it’s finally here! The new Xbox 360 has been unveiled, bearing the same name as your current Xbox 360 (instead of being called the Xbox 360 Slim), but boasting a slimmer form factor and better hardware. It’ll set you back $299, boasting a 250GB hard drive, Wi-Fi N and is shipping to stores today. If you were at the event, you probably already […]
06/14/2010, We (and probably all the gamers out there) are looking forward to the upcoming Halo: Reach, and the demo of the game at E3 is pretty impressive. Judging from the response from the crowd, Halo: Reach, Bungie should be quite happy with what it has been working on. More importantly, while combat on land is pretty much the same, space combat is what has everybody’s jaw wide open, and […]

06/14/2010, Microsoft has just introduced Kinect with the help of Cirque du Soleil in Los Angeles at E3. Formerly known s Project Natal, Kinect is a technology based on a camera that can capture color and depth information. It is capable of tracking movement of the whole body, which is not the case for arch-rivals Sony and Nintendo where it is the motion of sensors that is tracked. Despite being quite […]
