WHAT IS KINECT?
- Kinect for Xbox 360 (Microsoft) brings games and entertainment to life in extraordinary new ways, no controller required.
- While everyone else puts more gadgets and gizmos into your hands, Kinect removes the last barrier between you and the experiences you love.
- Kinect will work with every Xbox 360 console.
- Simply step in front of the sensor and Kinect recognizes you and responds to your gestures.
- See a ball? Kick it. Want to join a friend? Whether they are across the room, across the street or across the globe, connecting in a whole new way is as easy as a wave of your hand.
- Kinect (formerly known as “Project Natal”) is the next step in the evolution of the gaming and entertainment experience.
- More than 15 games (sports, adventure, cuddly animals) will be available this holiday in Europe.
