Microsoft's Kinect for XBox
Earlier this week I was invited to a hands on Microsoft Kinect party with my daughter. I have to tell you this new, no controller, Xbox gaming system, kicks all other gaming systems ass. It's not even close. Really the only thing that could make it better is adding 3D, and you'd basically have virtual reality.
The other thing I love about the no controller, is no batteries. I don't know about you but we blow through controller batteries like crazy. It isn't very green on our part. So not only is it a better gaming system but it's greener. Nothing beats green.
We got to play several of the games. My 6 year old loved the Kinectimals, a game where you virtually play with tiger cubs. I liked Dance Central, and the sport and fitness games.
It goes on sale in November. Just in time for the holiday season. I know what I'm asking Santa for
We also attend the very un Cirque Du Soleil performance, but I think that has been covered thoroughly, so I'll leave it out.
