List: Posted: 03/09/11

If you have video game lovers in your home, then you have likely heard them buzzing lately about the Xbox 360 Kinect.  This is likely to be one of the hottest gifts this year, and with good reason.  What exactly is the Xbox 360 connect, and is it a worthwhile purchase for the gamers in your household?

The Xbox 360 Kinect is a device that makes your Xbox 360 sensitive to motion.  If you have ever seen any of the motion based games for the Nintendo Wii, the Xbox 360 Kinect brings the same functionality to Xbox.  With this device, a 360 can pick up movements and incorporate them into the game, making it possible to simulate everything from fishing to tennis, boxing, and exercise.  Not only is the Xbox 360 Kinect a great way to make games more realistic, but it can get gamers up, moving, and exercising.

Many people were initially ambivalent about the Xbox 360 Kinect, but when Microsoft unveiled their initial lineup of products and games, interest went up quickly.  The motion controls are responsive and accurate, and the games are a great deal of fun to play. 

 

There are excellent options for gamers of all ages and interests, which means that the system is certain to sell out quickly this year.  Whether you choose to buy the peripheral for an existing system or a brand new Xbox 360 Kinect console, you will certainly find out quickly why there is so much buzz surrounding this unique and surprisingly fun product.
