Kinect, Kinect, Kinect--Weekly Roundup 11/1

by Jeff Cork on Nov 01, 2010 at 04:20 AM

This week Microsoft launches its Kinect peripheral, which adds motion- and voice-tracking capabilities to the Xbox 360. Oprah and Ellen's audiences seemed to love it, and it'll be interesting to see if that kind of mainstream enthusiasm translates into big sales. If you're not into flailing around, this week also sees the release of a pair of James Bond games, car-combat game Blood Drive, and Babysitting Mama.
