Got some sweet messages a week or so ago
I’m not going to lie, Avatar Kinect looks pretty cool. At the Microsoft keynote last night at CES 2011 this new feature debuted. The Xbox 360 Kinect will soon be able to recognize facial expressions and lip movement. Gamers will be able to “hang out” in virtual chat rooms where they can converse using their avatars. These conversations can also be recorded and uploaded to facebook.
Take a look…
I’m not really a chatty Kathy on XBL. I don’t see myself using this feature very much. But for those that are, this really is a sweet new feature. Pretty amazing that Kinect will be able to capture your expressions.
Thoughts? Do you plan on using this upcoming feature?
The Xbox 360 was released on November 22, 2005, in the United States and Canada; December 2, 2005, in Europe and December 10, 2005, in Japan. It was later launched in Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, and Russia. In its first year on the market, the system launched in 36 countries, more countries than any console has launched in a single year.
So celebrate by picking up your controller and playing!!
Hardcore gamers seem to have no interest in the new peripheral while family gamers are excited to get their hands on it. Personally, I’m not itching to get my hands on it. It’s other item that will be nestled under my Christmas tree.
But I am excited that the Xbox 360 community will grow with the new motion controller. While I assume the usual FPS and other M-rated games will stay away from using motion control many games designed for children and families will bring in new users.
Microsoft has been missing out for the most part when it comes to the young children. Wii has been ruling that market for some time. It’s about time Microsoft get in on that.
So to the hardcore gamers who have no interest, don’t buy it. But the gaming industry is a business and Microsoft has been missing out. Can’t blame them for chasing the dollar and jumping on the motion control bandwagon.
