Paranormal Activity 4 is better with Kinect


10:30 AM on 09.28.2012



Paranormal Activity 4 is out in theaters next month, featuring yet another spooky tale of people who happen to carry video cameras around their house every single minute of the day. The fourth installment will likely be the most ludicrous yet, not least for the fact that it features some prominent Kinect product placement. 

Microsoft's little black bar of pointlessness is showcased in the film before predictably being used to contrive a jump scare. You can see it in the trailer above, as the scary ghost thing makes the Kinect's tracking dots go all weird. 

I actually have a fondness for the Paranormal Activity films, though this one is likely going to be one too many. In any case, it's done one amazing thing already -- it's found a use for the Kinect. It's a fantasy, make-believe use ... but it is a use.

Now that's what I call paranormal!

Nintendo has been busy uploading videos like this one which details how to swap out the system's face plates. Interestingly, the stylus can be used to pry them open. Neat design! There are also a ton of videos showing the various 3DS themes.more

I've hid my gaming/media PC rig behind or under my television for years. It's much easier these days with all of the small form factor boxes available.  But I don't care how lovely they make these things; I'm still hidin...more

That Xbox 360 is blue!

Consoles sporting nontraditional colors can be hit or miss, but I have to say, I'm liking this blue Xbox 360. It'll be available starting October 7 in the US at Walmart with Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Call of Duty: Ghosts, a...more
