(Kinect Conference)

Natal name = Kinect launches Nov 4th

  • 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.

If you drop a PS3 right on top of a Wii, it would definitely defeat it. Not so sure about the Xbox360. - mancandy

and Bungie better show us some Halo Reach campaign footage. sick of waiting. :/

I'm EXCITED right now..


Xbone... the new "N" word   Apparently I troll MS now | Evidence | Evidence


I expect lots of Reach, Gears 3 and Fable 3.

Crackdown 2 will be on show.

Natal will be a certainty. Though i'm not overly interested at the moment...

Black Ops is likely to feature.


Pricecut / Natal Bundles / Slim are likely to be happening, it's just impossible to know which ones WILL happen for sure. And to what level.

Banjo Threeie, please. Left 4 Dead 3 is also more than possible.


Don't know what else to say right now
