Booya Cuz is our Table Tennis expert and he has spent many hours with both the PS Move and the Xbox Kinect and their respective Table Tennis games. This week Booya Gadget released a new Sports Champions Table Tennis video that will concentrate on more advanced serving techniques.
Track and Field for Kinect Sports is the true gem of Microsoft’s popular motion sensor peripheral. The ability of Kinect to scan and interpret your entire body is what does set it apart from Playstation’s Move system. While Kinect is a fun, easy and competitive casual gaming system, I wasn’t too excited to continuing [...]
Outside of Track n Field, Volleyball is my favorite mode in XBox Kinect Sports.

Personally I do not tend to be a Dance game person, but I certainly am a big fan of Music and similar rhythm games. Once again I was impressed with Microsoft’s Kinect system’s ability to easily track my movements, [...]
