    Its an add-on for the existing 360, a slimline balck box with 3 sexy lights on it lol, i'm no techy, but basically its a next-gen RGB Camera with omni-directional microphones, so it has facial/voice & spacial recognition technology... Just searching for some written info, if you can access vids, its on youtube aswell...

    does look pretty sweet, i wonder if it will be compatible with the old games or if it will be restricted to certain new ones? compatibility with resident evil or gta would be sick!

    I think it will defo have its limits & initially I can imagine the games produced for it being relatively basic & seriously fucking expensive...

    But the scope is endless really, can't see it being a fad/gimmick, everyone thought that about the Wii & look what happened there!

    Can see a nation of smashed lightbulbs & A&E visits from peeps trying to pull of Dragon Punches on SF2 lol.

    Surely it can't be that good that it could detect the slightest movement of your finger! It that was the case then you would have to keep really still when you ain't firing!

    It maps your body, so according to the video & the E3 footage the hardware comes with those "ball" type motion capture devices they use in films, so its as accurate as any of the techniques for special effects... Apparently...

    I am slightly sceptical aswell, I have to say...

    Eyetoy was jokes for 15 mintues...

    But yes, indeed it was pretty swag overall.

    From what i've seen/read, it could'nt be further away in concept, technology & playability...

    If they manage to overcome the dodgeyness most things like this have, eyetoy etc, it will be fuckking jokes. But I donno, if its guna be as good as in the vid, it looks like it will be extremely expensive.
