Xbox One's overhauled, souped-up Kinect sensor is actually sensitive enough to work out when you're bluffing at poker, Rare's Simon Woodroffe has told OXM - the studio has knocked together a demo in which the device monitors player expressions for telltale signs of unease.... read more

I wonder if Kinect can tell from your expression whether you're playing in your pants.

No. Clothing detection will be part of the new system. If any unclothed humans are spotted, a image is taken and uploaded to Redmond.

If you subsequently try to end your LIVE gold subscription, they send them back to you with a note that reads "Wouldn't it be a shame if your mother got sent these..."

In my own mad little world, I like to theorize that Kinect was designed by top secret scientists to track down the alien-lizard people that live among us, with its sensor working similar to Roddy Piper's glasses in 'They Live' :? :? :?

Now that it's in every box, [it's more like] 'use it where it makes sense, don't use it where it doesn't'.


I would hope this is the case, but I can see that for many developers their imagination will possibly outstrip their ability. Nice to see at least a couple of devs aren't just throwing in Kinect based controls for the sake of it. If this keeps up, my initial fears might well prove to be unfounded.

I'm not going to say I told you so, but I have prepared a little I was right dance I may upload to YouTube ;)

With the previous Kinect every game that wanted to use it felt like they had to justify the fact you had bought a Kinect almost single handedly. With the One we've all gone one so no one needs to justify it, it's just an option to use
