For an story that we saw with Microsoft connect this week -- finally the launch of one of the most anticipated gaming console console add ons.
In in a long long time.
And a Microsoft connect rolling out this week which is of course the -- on sensor bar -- stick on your current Xbox-360.
Initial thoughts about it I mean I I've reviewed it played with it for a -- to about two weeks now.
I think it's look I think it's gonna be -- one of the most.
You know pieces of video game equipment this holiday season we're looking at tag connected ventures was bundled inside the system and comes with it -- -- very cool by the yeah.
-- -- these -- to be doing the actual dancing -- this is connected ventures and into the took a play -- -- page right out of Nintendo's so playbook here which is.
You know what bundling game and it it's five games in one you because -- -- -- -- this holiday season but I think.
This holiday there isn't a lot of there is no other new hardware really so.
If you came out you know every year you have a kid wants something that that's new and exciting this is it and it's definitely the newest technology.
Please that I used to for a week before came out in red have been and then writing about him playing with it and it -- pretty astonishing how attracts your body.
I would say that it's definitely -- a lot more active and be requires you know certain.
Living room space requirements.
Ready that not everybody might have been a dorm room but.
Beyond that it's it's far and away the most unique experience this year indeed intact and this is the kind of technology that brings.
In lots of new gamers because I don't think hardcore gamers would see something like this and -- like I have to have it.
This mostly just pulls in people that otherwise wouldn't play because it doesn't have.
The intimidation I guess -- using button controls.
So this is anybody yet using your body and some of the things -- a little -- go -- -- some of the voice control stuff it was not impressed with it Microsoft was really excited about it and even failed a couple of times in the -- my wanna -- sessions with them and didn't really you know I I got -- -- through it it -- would rather go back to using my hands in mid -- to navigate the menus.
We talked about space a little -- Scott and I were talking yesterday but space in the living -- also an issue.
-- and I kind of some backed up against my couch in my living room is it is a pretty decently sized living room we have no table in the middle.
And you know there you are and and it actually want me to back up further so.
If you stand too close to the TV.
If it sensors on that you know throws and sort of reads your region in three dimensions don't activate so.
You you have to stand -- -- farther window back and also I think that requires it makes heavy larger TV a little bit have been nicer packaged with that because if you have.
They've never -- smaller TV in your standing six feet back.
-- probably not going to experience as -- it's kind of perfect for really a larger screen HD.
That's an unspoken part of the pressure that's part of a big rec room you wanna have a -- -- believe -- -- plus inch TV with.
We've already seen one moron who smashed the ceiling fan playing it -- smashed his -- a friend volleyball spike and he hit his ceiling fan it went right into was HD television and you need.
Around six to ten feet they recommend the plan that's and I think that's a stretch for I -- people in New York department through this -- site.
It's even in normal -- community even non New York places were having some issues with the size of this thing that and so Microsoft connect I think it's going to be a big success although I think one thing that has gotten I was we -- talking yesterday about this was.
What are the issues as people still don't understand that it's simply an add on to your current Xbox-360 -- a lot of people are thinking this is something new from Microsoft no it.
That is that a problem and having a hard time convincing people that you just you don't need to buy a whole new device for this you just adding it on I think maybe they should have branded it.
Differently when -- be like the -- connectors something because when you just -- connect and it's right that we just referred to was connected it's kind of confusing to give to -- did you hear an Xbox-360 -- you think a great for 150 bucks I can sort of make this a little we like and transformer -- sixty get -- like that and it.
Things -- are people going to stores for the holidays and it's gonna say I wanna connect.
They're gonna think it's under fifty dollars and they might be surprised of the bundle right you need is actually going to be about 400 dollars.
And then the game say it it changes the equation I think it's a way.
