You might be wondering what is the Microsoft Kinect but as soon as you see it you’ll recognize it. It’s the latest controlling device for your Xbox 360 that will make a revolution when it comes to motion capture gaming. Of course, most people know it by the name Project Natal. Microsoft decided to change the name for the upcoming E3 and to present it as Kinect.
Nintendo Wii has made quite a revolution with its controllers allowing your movement to be captured and to be transferred into the game, but unlike other gaming consoles Wii doesn’t have that much hardware power to offer and only thing great about it might be its controller. Well, people from Microsoft have a huge announcement to show on E3 in June which will make Xbox 360 capture movements and reproduce it in game.
Microsoft has unveiled its latest addition to the Xbox 360 lineup called Project Natal at the E3 09. It is an interactive motion sensing system for Xbox 360 allowing gamers take control of titles using their entire body. There’s simply no controller, you just walk up to the console and start playing, making it quite a significant move forward, even from the likes of the Wiimote. Movements are captured and understood, as are faces, expressions and voices. It all seems very exciting and promising for the future of gaming. Project Natal will be a blow to Nintendo and Sony.
