The retail name for Microsoft Xbox's new motion controller was initially going to be announced at the premiere event at e3, however usa today released an article today spilling the beans on "Kinect".
There's a growing movement in video games motion control. And Microsoft's latest twist: Its new system for the Xbox 360, dubbed Kinect and being unveiled this week, requires no controller at all.
They've also listed some of the games:
  • Kinectimals lets you train and play with 20 different virtual cats, including a lion, cheetah and tiger.
  • Joyride, a racing game, lets players use their hands to hold an imaginary steering wheel pull your hands toward you and push back out for an acceleration boost and their bodies to execute jumps and tricks.
  • Kinect Sports has six activities including boxing, bowling, beach volleyball, track and field, soccer and table tennis. To serve a volleyball, you mimic the real motion; in soccer, you can kick the ball or do a header.
  • Kinect Adventures includes a river-raft time trial and obstacle course, playable by up to four players. On the raft, playing as a duo, you and a partner must lean one way or another to steer. Jumping helps the raft reach special areas for extra points.
  • Dance Central, in development by MTV Games, brings a So You Think You Can Dance experience home.
  • Star Wars characters and iconic Disney favorites will be featured in separate new games being developed at Microsoft in conjunction with LucasArts and Disney.

Microsoft try too hard when naming things. Would be keen to try this though..

By the sounds of it, it is exactly as people expected, a heap of casual type games and f*** all potential use for hardcore type games.
Why would it cater to the "hardcore"? They've already got "hardcore" gamers buying the 360, they need something extra to lure in everyone else.

^ this is good logic for forward porting Kung Fu Chaos to the 360 or at least
release it on PC

Almost every gamer from casual to hardcore that I've spoken to say that this is one of the most fun games ever made

here's my 2bits to start a poll for forward porting because THIS IS SO yahoo! SERIOUSLY important

I'm not really very interested in Natal/Kinect, but I heartily endorse the idea of a 360 version of Kung Fu Chaos.

Just to counterbalance the douchebaggery, here's a link to a quick clip of the Star Wars title announced alongside. Looks pretty cool, although as the Kotaku guys point out the actor isn't quite in sync (plus it's a staged thing.. so grain of salt etc). Still, if it's Star Wars goodness and actually plays well then I'm sold.

Video didn't really show much but I totally agree if it's as good as it sounds I'll just be sold on the Star Wars game I'd love to pat Ewoks or tickle Chewbacca.

Question: If you want to develop an FPS for Kinect, how would the play move around?

Kinect: Rebel Assault 3 looks to be a more apt title for it. Enthusiasm turned down a couple of notches.

Is there a video showing anyone actually playing that Star Wars game? I want to see how what the person is doing in reality relates to what is going on on-screen.

Yeah, no. I reckon we'll see more when the show floor opens up.
