Weasley twins demo Harry Potter for Kinect
Electronic Arts shows a demo of a Harry Potter game that takes advantage of Microsoft's motion-sensing technology. To show it off, it calls on the actors who played the Weasley twins in the Harry Potter movies.
I was already planning to spring for an Xbox 360 and
I've been wanting something like Kinect since Ia few years ago and early last year. I love sports and games, but am not much for having to map natural actions to a couple buttons on a controller. Traditional console gaming held little appeal.
I like my Wii well enough, but find that I get a blister or sore arm before I get a real workout. But I have been keen on Kinect since I first got to last year.
If I had any lingering doubts that I would get a Kinect, I think that they were quashed on Wednesday, when I saw this demo of a Kinect-capable version of a Harry Potter game. (Harry's big with the Beyond Binary staff.)
Electronic Arts showed off the game during its press conference at the Gamescom event in Germany. And to add some extra drama, the game was demoed by the actors who play the Weasley twins in the Harry Potter movies.
My only question is whether this will satisfy my partner, AJ, or if I will still have to spring for a vacation to Orlando soon to see the Harry Potter theme park at Universal Studios Orlando. But I have a sneaking suspicion that I know the answer.
