Therefore, one of Microsoft’s main goals in creating Xbox Kinect is to attract gamers of all ages and skill levels. By using an interactive gaming experience similar to the Nintendo Wii’s, which is popular among players young and old, Microsoft hopes to achieve the same results by changing their system altogether. The one difference between the Wii and Xbox Kinect is that Xbox Kinect does not utilize any handheld controllers. Instead of a conventional video game controller, Xbox Kinect has an infrared camera that picks up on the gamer’s movements. It also operates with a distinct voice recognition device that will clearly distinguish one player from another.
