Microsoft to "Kinect" us with 17 games Nov. 4

We have seen the Sony PlayStation 3 "Move" controllers, and they're quite cool. On Nov. 4, Microsoft will deliver their much-hyped "Kinect" system, which is totally hands free.

Kinect was featured on "Oprah" Tuesday. It'll be feature on "Ellen" later this month. Next month, customers can purchase a new Xbox 360 4 GB console with Kinect and the game "Kinect Adventures" for $299.99. If you already have the Xbox, you can buy the Kinect unit for $149.99, which includes the Kinect sensor and the "Kinect Adventures" game.

Microsoft will debut 17 Kinect-ready games during the first four weeks after launch. They include "Family Game Night," "Game Party: In Motion," "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," and several fitness and dance games that I think will best take advantage of the system.

I can't wait to try this one.

I dunno, I think the Kinect will have a VERY limited audience compared to the Move. You won't be playing any FPS games with Kinect. Some games simply require buttons, how might you do that with Kinect? Don't see it happening. It's very interesting in concept, and i am looking forward to hearing your comments.

I have been playing MAG with the Playstation Move and it's really great. I think Sony did copy Nintendo, but took it a quantum leap past the Wii.

True one to one tracking, nice.
