Xbox 360 To Get Full-Body Motion-Sensing

Labels: , , , , , ,

I think this is stupid. Well, a couple of days ago we heard about the possibility of Sony releasing its own set of motion-sensing controllers. Well, it looks like the Xbox 360 looks to up the ante, with their own full-body motion-sensing. Yes, you can read that over if you like. This was talked about last year and it looks like we could see it soon - most probably E3, if it's true. Here's Engadget's breakdown of the capabilities of this motion-sensing device:

  • Full body and hand gesture control of games / characters.
  • In fighting games you kick, punch, duck, dive, jump and so forth with your body.
  • It also picks up small hand gestures like pinching, grabbing and scrolling.
  • There will also be video conferencing and games with video.
  • Trivia game over the internet with live images of each person playing. When a question pops up, they can clap to buzz in.
  • You can "move objects on your screen" and the other party can see what you're doing in real time.
  • Sensor detects only the person playing, not folks observing on the couch.

This reminds me of the Tekken game at Playdium. I hated it and I also hate this idea, but I'm sure kids will love it. We'll see what happens.

The erotic games industry just creamed their pants from all the possibilities.

Now that would be taking gaming to a whole new level.
