Microsoft is trying to increase demand in Japan with a mobile Kinect demo trailer. The trailer is meant to imitate the living conditions in Japan and encourage people to try the device on the spot and hopefully, get convinced of the possibilities. Unfortunately, the space available in the trailer is much bigger than the normal Japanese apartments.

The first Kinect Adult game is a fact. ThriXXX, an adult game company from Austria has created a hack that allows the Kinect sensor to be used with their adult sim games.
For now the Kinect sensor is used to detect your hand and translates that information to a virtual in-game hand. This then allows for ‘exploring’ and ‘interacting’ with various female characters. Read on for more info and a trailer of the adult Kinect game. If you just want to order Kinect, then do so here.
UPDATE: Microsoft will not allow games like this to be published. A spokesman said:
Xbox is a family friendly games and entertainment console and does not allow Adults Only (AO) content to be certified for use on its platform, and would not condone this type of game for Kinect
Kinect Accuracy… it has been a hot topic, especially in the debate of Kinect vs. Move. According to Sony Kinect is inferior because of its low resolution and low framerate and this all had to do something with the usb port.
I personally never had any problems with this, but apparently the resolution is too low to accurately track individual fingers and the rotation of the palm (which would make Star Wars Lightsaber action difficult to implement).
But we don’t have to fear this low resolution and accuracy problem anymore, because Microsoft is going to fix it!
Dr. Kawashima’s Body and Brain exercises, let’s just call it Kinect Brain Training, has just gotten its first real announcement trailer! This Kinect Game does not seem to deviate much from the proven concept where Dr. Kawashima focusses on gamers in all age groups: from the young ones to grandma. And, let’s face it: Who doesn’t love the Brain Training games that have come out up until now for other platforms?
Luckily Xbox Kinect’s game has some unique selling points… be sure to checkout the trailer to find out which ones!
