Microsoft Kinect for Xbox 360 Unveiled

It’s official. The new controller-free gaming device, previously code-named “Project Natal”, got its official name- the Microsoft Kinect.
The Kinect label was released before the start of this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles.

Microsoft Kinect for Xbox

The slim black Kinect sensor plugs directly into any Xbox 360. Despite of its small size, the Kinect device contains a camera, audio sensors, and motion-sensing technology that track 48 points of movement on the human body, and has the ability to recognize faces and voices. That means that game-players no longer need to memorize different commands in a hand-held control. As Mike Delman, corporate vice president of Global Marketing for the Interactive Entertainment Business, quoted:

“You (gamers) are the controller,” “You simply step in front of the sensor and Kinect sees you move, hears your voice, and recognizes your face.”

The device will be released this November and expected to boost sales for the holiday season. No price set yet for Microsoft Kinect, but rumors say it’s as high as $150. So stay tuned for more updates about this new device.
