Natal is no more – welcome to Kinect. The official name was announced last night along with game demos such as Star Wars (you’re the Jedi) to yoga, rafting and even a baby pet tiger simulator. The dashboard interface is said to be very Minority Report like (I haven’t played with it yet) and of course you get to wave your hand to navigate through Twitter, Facebook and Netflix which have been on XBOX for a while. Rock on.
What I’m very excited about is the video chat that Engadget mentions. With my impending move to the US, my family are now all guaranteed a Kinect unit at launch as it allows up to 4 people to chat and share photos. How much is that going to cost me and when do we get them? Stay tuned…more Kinect news coming this evening.
