The XBox Kinect is a great way to connect an elbow to a face

The Xbox Kinect hit the UK this morning, and already there are thousands of people looking like utter tits in the comfort of their own living rooms. Coincidentally, admissions into casualty departments are already soaring to new heights due to gameplay-related injuries.

Actually they're not, at least not as far as we know - but remember all those bullshit stories about how the Nintendo Wii caused broken bones / RSI / cancer? Expect the Kinect to get dragged through the media mud in much the same way, especially if more videos like this surface:

    I've to admit, I've been a huge Undertaking Natal/Kinect sceptic ever because it was announced with that sham Milo walkthrough and an awful lot of hyperbole. I have been making an attempt to keep an open thoughts however the various rumours that have circulated about house, lighting and multiplayer points have been a cause for concern. The advertising and marketing resolution that Microsoft took to place this within the arms of mainstream journalists and celebrities moderately than anyone who actually has expertise and expertise writing about gaming was extraordinarily worrying.
