There's an Xbox One Kinect bundle for $190 at Groupon

Remember when the Xbox One Kinect Bundle went for $499.99? Go back in time just a year ago and you'd still see some retailers listing the bundle at that price. Now with all the attention on the Xbox One S, the old Xbone with Kinect is going...

Review: FRU

I remember being excited about the original Kinect launching for the Xbox 360, back when I worked in retail. Our store even had a midnight opening for it, which was a rarity in those days. Since then, I've played a majority of games release...

I might just have to dig out my Kinect for FRU

I can never seem to remember its name, but I certainly recognize that gameplay. FRU is a Kinect-powered puzzle-platformer in which you control a little character with a gamepad and also move around in real life to affect the game world wit...

Xbox One Kinect bundle now as cheap as $215

And thus the Xbox One exodus continues. While we've previously seen some new 500GB Xbox One bundles sold for $230 (with tax and shipping from Newegg), today marks a big departure and a turning point in Xbox One prices: various units are now...

Microsoft doesn't want HoloLens to be another Kinect

Microsoft is taking its sweet ass time with HoloLens by design, says creator Alex Kipman. Speaking at a TED talk in Vancouver, Kipman explained that while the device is consumer ready, Microsoft wants folks to have something to do with the ...

They're still making Kinect games!

2015 was the year I packed up my Kinect for good. The device wasn't getting enough use -- certainly not for controller-free Xbox One menu navigation, which I never grew accustomed to, and rarely if ever for gaming. I got one of the older Ju...

Microsoft didn't push for Kinect development, Rare chose it

The internet narrative has always been: Microsoft bought Rare (Banjo-Kazooie, GoldenEye) in 2002, then wrecked it, most recently by way of consigning the company to Kinect development. But in a lengthy Eurogamer retrospective on the Kinect,...

Kinect finally makes good on a feature from the reveal demo

At E3 2009, Microsoft introduced Project Natal, the motion control peripheral that would go on to become Kinect. Most people remember it mostly for Peter Molyneux's kind of creepy "Milo" demo. But, there was also a snazzy sizzle reel of a ...

Xbox One's Kinect gesturing is a thing of the past

Kinect's role on the Xbox One is becoming more and more diminished. Another blow comes with this week's arrival of the New Xbox One Experience. For the first time ever, Microsoft has done away with hand-gesturing that couldn't be turned off...

Today's Xbox One holiday bundle is really two bundles

Microsoft's double-dippin' in more ways than one today. For its fourth Xbox One holiday bundle, it has actually announced two different packages. That's more than we expected, but one of them is kind of a retread from earlier this week. The...

Review: Commander Cherry's Puzzled Journey

"A game that captures pictures of you when you pose to build levels for your character to platform on? This is gonna be a blast," I thought naively as I excitedly volunteered to review Commander Cherry's Puzzled Journey, "Finally something ...

Has Microsoft killed Kinect?

Talking of backwards compatibility... did you notice what wasn't on that list of playable titles? Kinect games. There are no Kinect games. No Kinectimals, no Kinect Sport, no Dance Central. It seems that Xbox's all-singing, all-dancing moti...

It's just like Fruit Ninja, but with zombies

This all rather smacks of ingenuity. A new game just released on Xbox One, and it looks an awful lot like another popular title. Trade some produce for the undead and throw in some coins, and it seems as if you have a borderline clone. Yes...

Swery: D4 on PC is '100 percent bona fide D4'

To say that developer Hidetaka Suehiro -- or, Swery65 as most everyone knows him -- has a knack for creating unique and strange videogame experiences would be an understatement. He has a loyal cult following, as anyone that loves his works ...

Microsoft discontinues Kinect for Windows

Until today, you could buy a PC compatible, standalone Kinect v2 (the Xbox One one) for use with your PC or tablet. Microsoft just announced it will no longer be producing the Kinect for Windows sensor. If you still want to use a Kinect wit...

CCP's found the best use for Xbox One's Kinect so far

It’s no secret that virtual reality is quickly making its mark on the videogame industry. If that weren't evident before, GDC 2015 kicked the door wide open. That's why, with numerous developers turning their attention to the new tech...

 
 
Fruit Ninja review photo

Review: Fruit Ninja Kinect 2

Any way you slice it, Fruit Ninja is one of the most popular mobile games of all time. It's built around such an unassuming foundation that it lends itself perfectly to those lulls in life when you don't really want to think about anything....

Kinect interference won't be an issue in Rock Band 4

Harmonix wants the Rock Band 4 experience to be a social one -- a group of people together in a room using music as the driving force toward enjoyment. However, Microsoft has a once "integral" peripheral for the Xbox One that's notable...
