Microsoft Kinect: The AnandTech Review


For better or worse, new user interfaces are all the rage right now in the console gaming scene. Nintendo was first to the block in 2006 with 3D motion-controlled user interfaces, leveraging a unique combination of IR sensors and 6-axis MEMS...

Microsoft Kinect


When I first saw the Kinect in action, back when it was still known as Project Natal, I thought it looked like a gimmick and little else. It seemed to have potential, but potential doesn't sell units, and the possibilities of what may come weren't...

Just plain fun ; Limitless potential, could move beyond gaming ; New, innovative technology will only get better

150 price on top of Xbox 360 console ; Half-second of inherent lag ; Fairly basic games ; Only handles two players at a time

Microsoft’s Kinect add-on for Xbox 360 eliminates the need for controllers – and edges in on Nintendo’s Wii – with full-body gesture control.

Kinect for Xbox 360 review


And just like that, all three of the major game consoles now have some semblance of motion controls. Unlike the Nintendo Wii and PlayStation Move,

Powerful technology ; Voice commands really work ; Yoga, dance games show real potential

Requires lots of room space ; Launch lineup could be better ; Hand gesture UI can be very slow

Microsoft Kinect Review - PCWorld


Reasonably priced

Accuracy problems

Intrepid but flawed, Microsoft's Kinect motion-sensor for Xbox 360 offers true controller-free gaming at a reasonable price, but suffers from serious accuracy and tracking issues.

Kinect Review


The future of gaming or just another gimmick?

After being able to experience Kinect and some of its available games, the Kinect is no longer the joke we thought it was. It has lived up to some of the hype and promises made by Microsoft when they first announced it back in 2009. The control-free...

Microsoft Kinect


With Kinect Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo now all offer gaming without the use of a traditional joystick or gamepad

Kinect is a fantastic accessory that will extend the Xbox 360's user base to new audiences. That said, for the moment there's no killer game that will make the Xbox 360's current fan base run down to stores with their wallets. This is compounded by the...

Microsoft Kinect - Fun for just One or Everyone?


I've never jumped, hopped and skipped so much in my life. I saw the pearly gates, but live to tell you about Kinect.

Kinect Review


Thereâ�€�™s no denying that Kinect is a fascinating piece of technology that has the potential to help continue the evolution of gaming into new and exciting frontiers. Unfortunately, you cannot write a review based purely on potential, as reviewer...

An engineering marvel; has the potential to add genuinely new genres to gaming; when it works, it astonishes

Requires too much room to maneuver; doesn't work well with simultaneous players; lag time is exceedingly disconcerting; expensive; often fails to match movements one-to-one; generally feels "unfinished

Kinect Review


When Sony and Microsoft both said they wanted their latest console platforms to last in homes for a full decade, the enthusiast gamers out there (including me) scoffed at the idea. There was just no way that these platforms were going to last that...

One of the weirdest things about this game is that Microsoft spent the cash to license a ton of high-profile music to play in between points and plays, but it only plays a few seconds at a time. So while you'll hear songs like Queen's "We Are the...

Xbox 360 Kinect Review


Before I really get moving this this review, I think it's important to note that this is more focused at the kinect itself, and not the specific gaming content, though this will of course touch on that as it's part of the experience.
