Kinect-enabled TV ads demonstrated on video

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2336 days, 1 hour, 33 minutes ago
Tuesday, June 28, 2011 8:33:42 AM GMT
Remember the terrifying future we imagined when Microsoft explained its dream of Kinect-enabled advertising? There's no need to imagine anymore, as Microsoft's demonstration has been caught on video. The footage showcases functions like television scheduling and finding local retailers, all of which is tied to responding vocally to television commercials. (more)

Halo Anniversary will have Kinect support

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2343 days, 2 hours, 13 minutes ago
Tuesday, June 21, 2011 7:53:38 AM GMT
Kinect up in your Halo, ya'll. Microsoft confirms that the anniversary edition of Halo: Combat Evolved will include Kinect support. What exactly was said? Not much. Phil Spencer said this to GameSpot: "As a first party we believe that Kinect will be important to all genres of games, be it racing games with Forza, combat games like Ryse -- even games like Halo Anniversary has Kinect integration."

The Child of Eden Experience

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2344 days, 1 hour, 8 minutes ago
Monday, June 20, 2011 8:58:34 AM GMT
The highly anticipated spiritual successor to Rez, Child of Eden was released in the UK on the 17th June, and what better way to channel your excitement than to experience the game yourself. Last week Ubisoft opened“The Child of Eden Experience” in central London to the public. This custom-built store is designed with one purpose in mind: to give you the opportunity to experience Child of Eden the way it was meant to be played in all its interactive glory using Xbox Kinect.

4J Studios is working on Minecraft for XBLA

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2347 days, 2 hours, 2 minutes ago
Friday, June 17, 2011 8:05:09 AM GMT
We know that the Kinect-compatible version of Minecraft for Xbox 360 will be an Xbox Live Arcade title, which should be a good indicator for how much it'll eventually cost when it hits this holiday. It's now been divulged that 4J Studios is the company behind the game. That's the same team who did an amazing job porting the Banjo-Kazooie games to XBLA, among other things. I feel better about this project already, knowing they're doing it. (more)

E3: Kinect makes Max Scoville look ridiculous, giant

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2350 days, 49 minutes ago
Tuesday, June 14, 2011 9:18:26 AM GMT
If you paid attention to Microsoft's press conference at this year's E3, then it should come as no surprise that Kinect games are dominating the Xbox this year. While this may seem like good news for those of you who don't mind incorporating a little fitness into your video game routine, there is that nagging thought lying in the recesses of our brains: just how ridiculous does Kinect make us look?

TriMount turns your Wii, Kinect, and PlayStation sensors into a video game Eye of Sauron

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2355 days, 3 hours, 16 minutes ago
Thursday, June 09, 2011 6:51:14 AM GMT
All right, we get it. You love motion gaming. You fell so hard for your Wii that you had to run out and buy the Kinect and PlayStation Move the minute they hit stores. And now you've got a lot of sensors, but not much in the way of space atop your flatscreen. DreamGear understands your decidedly first world pain, and is offering up the TriMount, a shrine to gesture-based gaming that has slots for your Wii sensor bar, Kinect sensor, PlayStation Eye, and a clamp for attaching it to your set. The $30 setup ... (more)

Dance Central 2 preview: This is how we (both) do it

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2356 days, 2 hours, 9 minutes ago
Wednesday, June 08, 2011 7:58:11 AM GMT
Dance Central was undoubtedly one of the best and most successful launch titles for Microsoft's Kinect. Keeping that in mind, Dance Central 2 has some pretty big shoes to fill or, at the very least, another pair of shoes. The marquee new feature is definitely simultaneous two-player dance battles, which I was able to try out at Microsoft's expansive E3 booth. (more)

E3: The rubbish MS will announce for Xbox 360

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2359 days, 2 hours, 50 minutes ago
Sunday, June 05, 2011 7:17:16 AM GMT
Microsoft has been pretty quiet in the run to E3, and it was speculated (by me) that we'd get a lame press conference from the Xbox 360 maker, for the third straight year. According to the list of games it's due to announce, the speculation is dead-on. (more)

Rumor: Domains reveal new Fable, Dance Central and Kinect Sports

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2359 days, 2 hours, 53 minutes ago
Sunday, June 05, 2011 7:13:39 AM GMT
The announcement of sequels and spin-offs has become too routine to incur huge gasps of disbelief at E3's trio of biggest press conferences. A real surprise, then, would be in those titles staying under wraps until the very last moment. "Spoiler," says the internet, "but that's not happening while I'm around. Check out these domain registrations." (more)

Newest Kinect hack: a grocery cart that loyally follows disabled shoppers (video)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2359 days, 3 hours, 4 minutes ago
Sunday, June 05, 2011 7:02:33 AM GMT
Microsoft's Kinect is the gift that keeps on giving for hackers, spawning everything from glasses-free teleconferencing to Tesla coil manipulation to uh, well, Android dance parties. But Luis de Matos's wi-Go project is one of the most socially conscious we've seen: it adds a laptop and (despite its name) a Kinect to a shopping cart, enabling the cart to follow a wheelchair user. Improving on the B.O.S.S. bot we saw a half-decade ago, the wi-Go could allow anyone -- including the disabled or elderly -- t... (more)

Will Mass Effect 3 use Kinect on Xbox 360?

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2362 days, 1 hour, 43 minutes ago
Thursday, June 02, 2011 8:24:03 AM GMT
The all-seeing eye of the internet happened to catch the above image of Mass Effect 3 box art for the Xbox 360 from Electronic Arts' online store. The image, which shows the Kinect Sensor compatibility bar found on all games with Microsoft's motion control system as a feature, was quickly removed from its page, though the original file is still on their servers as of the time of this writing.

Microsoft motion controller concept kicks sand in Kinect's puny face

Think your body's a temple? Turns out it's actually just the antenna the temple's staff uses to watch football when they're done praying. A group of engineers from Microsoft Research showcased a technology at Vancouver's Conference on Human Factors in Computing that offers gesture-based control on a scale that could make the company's Kinect controller downright laughable.

Child of Eden not hitting PlayStation 3 until September

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2403 days, 3 hours, 38 minutes ago
Friday, April 22, 2011 6:29:26 AM GMT
Ubisoft has confirmed to IGN that the PlayStation 3 version of Q Entertainment's Child of Eden has been moved all the way back to September of this year. No specific reasons for the delay were cited. Considering quite a few people were planning on going with the "expected"-to-support-Move PS3 version as a middle ground between full-body Kinect and a standard gamepad, this is rather disappointing to hear. Remember, Child of Eden will release for Xbox 360 on June 14 in North America. (more)

According to their tipster the Hulu (which looks similar to Zune Video as predicted) and Avatar Kinect apps are "fully functional," with good tracking of their movements similar to existing uses for the peripheral. there's no word on whether or not members of the larger public preview will get an early peek at these features, but you can...

Nintendo to Cut Price of Wii to $150?

Thursday, April 14, 2011 7:33:43 AM GMT
Nintendo is rumored to be dropping the price of its wildly popular motion-gaming console, the Wii, by $50. This would bring the current price of $200 down to $150. Engadget cites a trusted source that says the price will fall on May 15, a little over four weeks from now. At $150, the Wii would be a full hundred dollars cheaper than the just-released 3DS. (more)

If you must suffer an unforeseen failure in confidentiality on any day of the year, what better day than April 1st? It's the one time when the internet can muster some skepticism, even while presented with purportedly leaked footage of a high-profile sequel. Doubt over the authenticity of an "internal" pitch video of Forza Motorsport 4 might have obscured the news, had Microsoft not pulled it from Youtube. (more)
