    Microsofts wildly popular Kinect gaming system could have changed the game for players who have disabilities such as cerebral palsy and would otherwise be unable to use a gaming controller.

    For allowing people to shoot Microsoft will probably have to ship a remote with the Xbox 360 Kinect which to some extent will kill the unique proposition that the Kinect offers.. And maybe the game could have options at the start to help it understand who the players are and so that after that the camera does not read any other object s motion..Unless Microsoft has fixed these bugs by the time it launches the Xbox 360 Kinect might work best for the dancing adventure and fitness games that come with it..However the Kinect can also be used to control movies playing on it so that films can be fast forwarded or rewound with hand gestures and this method of controlling electronic devices will most undoubtedly lead to a whole slew of new inventions and more realistic gaming in the future…

    Haven’t tried the Kinect on my old 360, but now that I’ve seen this, I ‘m very hesitant to try it out.

    The only issue i’ve had with using my Kinect on the Original Xbox 360 is that i needed an adapter as there isn’t a dedicated port on there. i got this http://www.gamingzap.com/kinect-adapter-power-supply-for-original-xbox-360.html and it’s done the trick perfectly – great gameplay and no red lights
