XBox 360 Kinect

After I saw Justin Bieber in concert, I was amazed. No, not so much by him, but by the fact that XBox 360 sponsored his whole entire tour. The best part about it was how they showed a video demonstration (done by Justin himself, blah blah blah) using one of the season’s hottest toys. XBox 360 took video gaming to the next level. When the Wii came out, of course we all thought it was cool since for the most part, it was wireless camping. But now, your body, everything about you, is the control.

XBox 360 has invented a device called Kinect, where you are the controller for the game. While the game market hasn’t expanded that much for games for the Kinect, but it actually keeps you involved. You’re no longer sitting on the couch with a remote, you actually control everything yourself. There are games where you can pretend to be a tiger, simply dance the dance moves that others are doing, and sports where you have to jump and level yourself on a snowboard/skateboard.

I think it’s a great game, despite the killer price of $129.99. It’s actually getting people off the couch and to be energetic. There are games you can purchase that help to excursive, but in a fun way. There is even Zumba, one of the hottest work out routines right now. XBox 360 Kinect bundles are sold out in stores all over. This is definitely one of the hottest gifts for the season. I’m just trying to get my hands on one myself.
