Hey Wii.. You might consider watching your back

Unveiled by the Cirque du Soleil (founded in Montreal, might i add!) 2 days ago at E3, KINECT is the beginning of controller-less gaming technology.

Originally titled “Natal”, Kinect drops all controllers and all restraints.

Full body play.

Hands, feet, arms, and legs.

Actually, it’s not technically controller-less IF you consider YOURSELF the controller.

More information is to come about the requirements, launch date, and press.

Scroll to the middle of the page to see the performance by Cirque du Soleil as well as opinions from many celebrities.

Also, watch the main video that presents Kinect’s capabilities.

At the moment Microsoft’s Kinect and Sony’s Move are looking to the future while Nintendo dwells in the past.

Comparing Kinect with Playstation Eye is simple: You have a ton more cameras permiting greater depth and far more accurate movement based on the full body.

What can you play on it? The starters include a racing game called Joyride, MTV Dance Central, and a couple unnamed Disney titles. What will definetly interest Star Wars fans is a game which allows controller-less lightsaber battles.

Let’s wait and see, but in the meantime – Wii, I suggest you watch your back.
