Power Button - Episode 28: Dis-Kinect-ed
November 17, 2010
Back on the day that Microsoft released the Kinect add-on for its Xbox 360 console, your local podcasting crew met up to record this episode of Power Button. As with many things, it fell to Joey Davidson, Brad Hilderbrand, and I to issue a verdict on the whole Kinect concept, and that's quite a feat considering that none of us have actually played the final version of any of the games that require the camera. So, from the sidelines we weigh in on the technology's requirements and the ongoing injuries caused by playing Kinect games in tiny rooms. Following that we delve into the rising cost of downloadable content (both full games and add-ons) and how content that was once an impulse buy has become something that requires a running tab and a budget. Not bad for fifty minutes, eh?
