If you have not been listening in to the latest news of the gaming world, perhaps I can do you a favour and fill you in on the latest happenings. If you have heard of games that make use of motion sensing technology, things have just got a bit hotter these days with the new Microsoft xbox kinect. While in the past the share of this side of the pie went to Nintendo with their wii console, other motion sensing game consoles have entered the market recently. Other than the xbox kinect, there is also PlayStation move from Sony, which is very similar to Nintendo’s wii. While games have usually survived being just plain games without the need for motion sensing technology, the way I see it moving forward most games will require motion sensing, given that the technology now is readily available and has stabilized too.
What is so great about these games? Well for one it introduces realism. For the Kinect dance games, you can dance any way you like and your actions would be replicated by the console. While previously you needed a dance mat, you do not need one now as the kinect camera is able to take in your actions as they are. Then there are other fitness games that also make use of motion sensing to help you lose weight. Perform the fitness repetitions accurately if not they will not be counted. Punching a virtual opponent also adds in much fun.
So I do hope that after reading this article you might want a get the Kinect Xbox which will guarantee loads of fun for you and the family. Also check out the many Kinect Games Review available in the market so that you can choose some of the more exciting and fun games to try out.
