The lights are on
Unsurprisingly, there has been a lot of Kinect going on in the GI offices lately. Ever since it showed up, we've all been giving its launch lineup a shot. On deck today was Kinect Sports, and Bryan and I went head-to-head in several track & field events. Once we finished, we were treated to a little montage of us jumping around and generally looking like jackasses. Up in the corner was a little "share this video" option, so we tried it out.
The process for sharing these videos is about as streamlined and user-friendly as possible. Your video gets uploaded from your 360, then you just log on to kinectshare.com with the Windows Live ID associated with your Gamertag. From there, you just click the game you played, and you're given options to download the video or post directly to Facebook.
I was actually really impressed with the whole process, and it was really cool to be able to watch the video mere minutes after we were done playing. Check out the final product below.

You guys have the frickin best job in the world.
Dan your hair friggin' awesome.
Back when wrestling was still cool, lol.
I want that Halo 3: Recon Shirt!
nice tag "did the crotch chop before i realized this was going online"
I was thinking the tag before I read it....
Lol, actually looks kinda cool...
I have to say, the music made this ever more entertaining to watch.
I love how it looks like Dan's hair is dancing to the music. Also what is he doing towards the end? Pelvic thrusts of victory? or is that part of whatever they're playing?
This is not going to do very well from the looks of it..
As nice as this feature is, and I appreciate that Microsoft included it, I can see this as a tool more to embarrass friends with than for any serious purpose.
Dan did it for the men.. I mean ladies!
Wow, I didn't realize how creepy it is to watch people play over their shoulder. I should stop that.
Ha ha ha! To laughy for words...
This should be a weekly feature, just random GI staffers in front of the kinect for a minute or so, lol
haha how ridiculous people look while playing motion based games
Finally something from Kinect that I dont think is lame as hell.
