Microsoft's motion sensing Kinect device has been surrounded by controversy over what it can and cannot do. So much so, in fact, we're losing count. So, based on what we know so far, we've put together this guide on how you will and won't be able to use Kinect when it's finally released.
We asked Microsoft for clarification on all of the points below, but their response was rather woolly, containing lines like "What we’ve shown thus far is only the tip of the iceberg of a whole new era of controller-free games and experiences brought to life by Kinect". So in the spirit of videogame journalism, we'll assume everything the internet told us is correct until the facts reveal themselves in due course.
It's going to be very interesting to see what the final product is like. The clock is ticking...
