Microsoft has officially announced the name of their much-anticipated motion caption camera and the name is "Kinect." USA Today is reporting that the camera, which has been known as "Project Natal,"officially has a new name on the eve of their press announcement. The camera eliminates the need for a controller, and rather monitors your motions to control the game.
So far we only know of a name and a handful of release titles that were also announced. The games are:
Kinectimals: Puts you in a virtual petting zoo with a plethora of animals
Joyride: A virtual car ride
Kinect Sports: Think Wii Sports, but with no Wiimote
Kinect Adventure: So far all we know is river rafting about this one.
Dance Central: Dance party on the 360.
Stay tuned for more details as they are announced.
