The Xbox Kinect - Microsoft's New Motion Controlled Gaming System

Avid gaming enthusiasts who have found out about "Project Natal" have probably heard that it was recently re-christened to now be known as Xbox Kinect. All the game lovers playing Xbox will enjoy an advanced level of gaming, thanks to the new innovation from Microsoft. This console will use a innovative 3D camera as well as gesture recognition software that will take game enthusiasts into an innovative gaming world, by mimicking their physical activities in the real world, which will then transport straight into the game. The best part of this innovation is that you have to use your entire body movements along with your fingers and eyes. This data was released when the Xbox Kinect made its introduction in Los Angeles in front of an invitation-only audience.

By personalising the services of the well-known circus group, Cirque du Soleil services, Microsoft introduced this incredibly new product with an amazing extravagance. The function was attended by VIP's, the press as well as various Hollywood actors and was held last June 13, 2010, Sunday. Cirque du Soleil's performance lasted a mere 45 minutes but the circus troupe spent months of planning and hundreds of hours of practicing to perfect the program. 76 music artists, acrobats, clowns as well as dancers were added in for the function. Other highlights include huge projection screens spanning the length of an entire football field as well as a 40-foot logo of the Xbox. The event managers as well designed an elephant that was 25 feet in height. Here many projectors were set up.

The event was held inside the Galen Centre. A little man made forest was made within the area also where hypnotic as well as incredible drumbeats began. The event's guests were treated to displays that featured high tech living rooms mounted on rotating bases, and streaking meteorites falling down to Earth, A puppet show inspired by Microsoft's Xbox 360 Kinect was also on display .

Microsoft probably won't say much more about the system, which is assumed to be a clever marketing move making sure that followers of the Xbox 360 as well as other video games consoles will be left hoping more. What they did tell the public was that the Xbox Kinect is purely a device that will simply plug into an Xbox. This is great news for those individuals who are already very happy with the amount of games that they own for the old Xbox, as well as don't actually prefer to buy a whole new console just to be able to try out this latest one.

Microsoft's announcement came at a quite good time as Sony as well publicised the launch of a latest motion monitoring controlling system for the successful Sony Playstation 3. Now these two consoles were in direct competition with each other which was further suffering from the high competition from Nintendo Wii console in the market. The Xbox 360 connect is exclusive amid the 3 systems in that it isn't going to need a controller or any other peripheral apart from the camera to track motion. Thus, it implies that motion controlled games played on other consoles were quite different from the Xbox 360 Kinect games.

Although a specific price was not provided, analysts estimate that the Xbox Kinect will be released within the price range of around 50$-200$ Professionals from video gaming companies have as well shared that an approximate number of fifteen games will be available after the launch of the game come this November.

If you feel that Xbox Kinect is just like any other gaming console and it is simply not worth investing in this gaming console, the you are probably wrong as world's popular video game manufacturers are soon introducing various gaming accessories that will help the player to play Xbox Kinect with great enthusiasm as these are really fascinating for the player .

No additional particulars were released, due to the fact it seems like anyone is confirmed to keep it hush-hush. If you're itching to find out more, you're just going to have to wait until November 2010.
