First Look: Microsoft Kinect for Xbox 360

1:16 /

CNET editor Jeff Bakalar takes a hands-on look at the Kinect for Xbox 360, Microsoft's motion-sensing video game technology.

[Music] ^M00:00:03 >>Hey, what's going everyone, I'm Jeff Bakalar for cnet.com, we've got our first look here with Microsoft Connect, Microsoft's motion control system that they unveiled at E32010, had some first hands-on with two games, Connect Joy Ride and I also go to play Connect Adventures. There's a little bit of a learning curve with all the new motion control, there's no physical controller involved, so you're going to have learn how to sort of play the game without anything in your hands, it's a lot of fun, you're going to get a good workout, because your moving around a lot, and we played a few games, I was a big fan of Connect Adventures, had me in a raft, and I was jumping around to collect pins, it was a lot of fun. You really have to move around a lot, it's not just your hands; you have to move your entire body around. Really good time. Also got to check out Connect Joy Ride, which is a racing game where you both your hands to control the car you're driving, and body motion to create boosts and to perform tricks while your cars in the air. Had a lot of fun with that too. So, that's our first look at Microsoft Connect. You can try it out for yourself, when it comes out November 4th, for the Xbox 360. I'm Jeff Bakalar for cnet.com, thanks for watching. ^M00:01:14 [Music]
