Microsoft has released free new mini games, mascots and gamerscore points for Kinect Sports, with future free content for Kinect Joy Ride to follow in January...
Yeah, this is a thing that is happening. As part of the upcoming DLC push for their rather delightful downloadable Tomb Raider Game, Crystal Dynamics are soon to release two downloadable character packs, one of them set to comprise of everyone's favourite sociopathic heist-merchants. While it's obviously a (hopefully) last, desperate attempt on behalf of publisher Eidos to make people care about Kane & Lynch, this does bode mass comedy potential. Even better, there's also the promise of a second pack, bringing back Raziel and Kain, of the supremely why-haven't-we-got-another-sequel-yet Soul Reaver series.
There are new challenge packs coming too, but seriously, Raziel and Kain...
Anyway, we have the first, big, high-res screen of Kane and Lynch doing their Tomb Raiding thing right over the jump, as well as a couple of videos. You know you need to check it out.
Biggest problem with Kinect: A glut of puddle-deep party games designed for the under-eights and the over-impressed.

Due to a strange psychosis which swept the US last Thursday, millions stood outside before the sun rose on Friday morning to be among the first to buy shopping carts full of things they don't need.

According to reports, Kinect sales are just about to jump over the half-million mark, just one week after it was released. Clearly there's early adopter interest in the peripheral, but will it keep up the pace?
Still mystified by Kinect's inner workings? One inquisitive gamer has put his Modern Warfare night vision goggles to practical use and caught a glimpse at how Microsoft's new motion sensing accessories get to work after dark...
A mini-flurry of media buzz hit after GameSpot posted a news article titled, "Kinect has problems recognizing dark-skinned users?" The report claims that "two dark-skinned GameSpot employees had problems getting the system's facial recognition features to work." Later on, it notes, "Lighter-skinned employees were... consistently picked up on the first try."
When he isn't dropping dope beats with his funky bunch, fighting damn dirty apes or hanging out on the set of Entourage, it appears as though Mark Wahlberg likes to hand out free XBox Kinect systems to good little Boys and Girls Clubs across America.
