E3 2010: Project Natal named Kinect, still a creep.

Hey there, Creepy, you got a name!

World, meet Kinect. Kinect, meet the world. This news came out prior to E3, a day before, actually. Leaky news. Click more for more  and a list of some of the games that will be compatible with this thing.

Available for purchase: November 4

Price: Unknown at this time

It will probably come in a bundle, and you’ll probably be able to buy it as a stand alone accessory. This is a guess on my part. The new Slim 360 has a port specifically for the device, but doesn’t come with the device, so…

And in case you don’t remember what it does…it’s a creepy camera/mic combo parading as a controllerless controller that uses body language and voice commands.

A list of games from USA Today.

Kinectimals lets you train and play with 20 different virtual cats, including a lion, cheetah and tiger.

Joyride, a racing game, lets players use their hands to hold an imaginary steering wheel — pull your hands toward you and push back out for an acceleration boost — and their bodies to execute jumps and tricks.

Kinect Sports has six activities including boxing, bowling, beach volleyball, track and field, soccer and table tennis. To serve a volleyball, you mimic the real motion; in soccer, you can kick the ball or do a header.

Kinect Adventures includes a river-raft time trial and obstacle course, playable by up to four players. On the raft, playing as a duo, you and a partner must lean one way or another to steer. Jumping helps the raft reach special areas for extra points.

Dance Central, in development by MTV Games, incorporates immersive, full-body dancing without the need for a controller.

Star Wars characters and iconic Disney favorites will be featured in separate new games being developed at Microsoft in conjunction with LucasArts and Disney.
