Kinect to a new world of fun
Member Name: sthomo258
Advantages: innovative, beats rival, fun for all the family
Disadvantages: Not very effective in small houses with small rooms
The Microsoft Kinect is absolutely fantastic!
It far outdoes its rival, they playstation move, in every way.
The idea that you are the controller is not an exaggeration. You move your arms, then your avatar moves their arms. You move your legs or your head, your avatar moves their head or legs. And in a recent interview I read, one of the creators claims they have only tapped into the potential of the kinect. So there is so much more to come, possibly even finger tracking meaning it will even go into the detail to follow whatever you do with your fingers.
With fantastic games that are fun for all the family, and even new releases beginning to introduce Kinect features (e.g. Mass Effect 3), it is something that is becoming vastly popular not just with its consumers, but with all the games companies out there.
Although, if you are like me and live in a small house with not big rooms, it can get a little annoying when you also have a sofa that blocks your foot on the screen. But you can't exactly move your sofa out the room, and so you are limited to play only certain games.
But otherwise, it is a fantastic step in technology.
Summary: A fun for all the family piece of technology with much more to offer
