Please can you Kenect me?
It was about a year ago that I saw Project Natal demonstrated for the first time and I was blow away by the possibilities it presented…so colour me happy that Natal, now called Kenect, has been officially announced. The launch titles are to be frank standard Wii fare but don’t be fooled, having see Project Milo there’s huge potential far beyond the usual sports, dance and endless bolt on motion control titles beloved of Nintendo’s platform. As well as the endless entertainment options one rather neat idea I’ve seen mentioned is using Kenect as a video conferencing endpoint for Office Communications Server.
They’ll also be a new slimmed down and shiner Xbox 360 with built in WiFi and a 250Gb HDD, but most important of all it’s said to be ‘whisper quiet’.
