Microsoft Kinect: Controller-Free Entertainment

On the surface it’s interesting. A hands-free gaming system to woo you from the Nintendo Wii. That will take a lot of doing given the 4-year lead by the category creator, Nintendo, not to mention the some 70,000,000 consoles sold worldwide. That’s 30,000,000 more than Microsoft’s Xbox 360. Still, you wonder when Microsoft will get it right. With their resources and a great product they could build momentum quickly. What does Nintendo have up its sleeve? You can bet they have something. By the way, Sony is ready to give the PlayStation 3 console its very own motion controller, namely the PlayStation Move. The move is expected to this fall and the Kinect in early November.
