Ok, so there's a new Wii on the block.

I've seen the commercial, but dont understand how the movements are input without an input device. Please explain...

So how the fuck does it differentiate who is who? Really, is the technology that fuckin advanced that now you dont even need an input device? Really? Wii just came out a few years ago, now we dont need anything to hold?

^^yep yep. You haven't seen the commercials (if not youtube)? Seems pretty cool, I know Nintendo is kinda pissed. I won't be getting this though, all I play is Halo.

I've heard that it has be around 10 ft away from you to see your whole body.

Honestly, I never pick up my Wii any more. I should because I have an unfinished Mario and Metroid game (which don't use any of the motion controls).

I think it's like 3D tv, it's a fad. But I like fads because now they are selling 50" Visios for $800 to make room for the 3D tvs.

I've seen the commercials but they dont explain shit. All you see is people jumping around then it cuts to the game they are playing and then some camera looking device. Body movement recognition software? When the developers make games using the likes of real people, they connect all of these digital points to the body with a suit so everything corresponds...now it just reads your fuckin movements and is accurate??

It just seems like a real leap into the future from where we were a few weeks ago.

If its accurate and it can control all games then I am sure I will be getting one to replace the Wii...

I am really waiting for the OP who actually has it/has played with it to respond since everything else is speculation.

THIS. The kinect sensor has two cameras and then a body sensor that kind of works like a heat sensor.. when you tune it there is a part where you can have the kinect find you and your screen kind of turns into like if the predator was looking at you... so your body and everything is green and then you have body points on you.. your head.. shoulders. knees.. feet..

It's pretty sweet how this thing works.. you use your hands as the controller.. you point to the start buttons. kick a ball like if you really playing soccer.. ping pong is just like if you were really at a table.. shit is sick man.. can't wait till they have shoot em up games..

Fanboy fail. For someone who has Samus Aran in his avatar, I am very disappointed in you.

I finished Metroid like 3 days after it came from Gamefly. If they come out with Metriod 15 when I'm 80 years old I'll be winning that sucker.

Microsoft must agree they upped their estimate from 3 million to 5 million Kinect unit sales for Q4, I'll be surprised if they can move 5 million or even can produce that many. I've been waiting to order since I'll just buy a 2nd 360 for the kids to play Kinect, wanted to see the reviews 1st. Does some promising and fun for people who don't want to use a controller like many kids and non-gamer adults.
I don't think this replaces the Wii, PS3's Move replaces the Wii though, it's yet to be seen if Kinect can be used in conjunction with more typical fanboy type games!_!

Google is your friend. There are a billion articles dedicated to the technical of how this thing works...

So far the reviews say that the kinnect is racist. It apparently isnt working well for dark skinned people.. FAIL

Read engadget.. The reviews are sub par. They think it needs to grow past ver 1.0 in the software to be better...
