The Xbox Kinect: A Brand New Gaming Experience

LONDON UNITED, KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Dec. 15, 2010) - The launch of the brand new Xbox Kinect sees Microsoft on the verge of improving home gaming forever. Gamers will also no longer need controllers, as the Kinect uses body movements and hand gestures to perform onscreen commands.

Microsoft is about to launch the much anticipated new Xbox Kinect in the UK. Featuring groundbreaking technology, the new gaming system offers gamers the opportunity to down their controllers and assume the role themselves. The Xbox Kinect uses technology that converts players' body movements into onscreen commands. The Xbox Kinect will be launched in the UK on 10 November 2010.

The system will transform the way players' interact and connect with one another in a gaming environment. The attachment will work with all Xbox consoles and will allow gamers to play a wide range of games specifically designed for the new Xbox Kinect. Some of the actions users will be able to perform include steering a car, fighting opponents and shooting bad guys.

As an introduction to the revolutionary new system, the Xbox Kinect comes with a copy of Kinect Adventures. This disc contains a wide range of games and activities for players to enjoy while learning how the new Xbox add-on works. Float in outer space, raft down raging rapids or tackle an obstacle course on a mountaintop to experience the Kinect's capabilities.

The new Xbox Kinect uses facial and vocal recognition applications to allow gamers to log into their Xbox Live accounts. Users will also be able to navigate their console menus, libraries and media collections with the flick of a wrist, making the system even easier to use.

With the release of the new Xbox Kinect, traditional gaming has been challenged to improve its offering as gamers all across the UK will be putting down their controllers and assuming more physical game manipulation roles.
