What is the difference between xbox 360 and xbox kinect?

Are they 2 different consoles? You might know about the game kinect also called “project natal”. Will Xbox kinect come already attached with the game kinect? If you have xbox 360 with you than will you have to buy the game kinect separately like you buy your other games?

    No they are not different consoles xbox kinect is an add on camera control type thing that lets you play games in a whole different way you use your body instead of a control check the vid out

  2. Jack says:

    Kinect isnt a game or console think of it as an add on to your 360 in which your body becomes the controller for certain games

    Kinect is an add-on peripheral for the Xbox 360. You don’t have to buy it, but you won’t be able to play certain games or have special features that the Kinect will offer. Basically what it is, is Microsoft’s version of Nintendo’s Wii. Only with Kinect, there are no handheld controllers, as you yourself are the controller. There is no set price yet confirmed by Microsoft, however, GameStop has it on there website for pre-order at $149.99.

    The xbox 360 is an actual console with standard controllers, while the kinect is an add on piece of technology that lets you play without needing controllers.

    Xbox 360 kinect

    The new Xbox 360 redesign is slimmer, quieter, sleeker, has built in Wireless N, and has a 250GB hard drive. It is not a new console, and is not any spectacular leap for Xbox. This is simply a better Xbox 360. First off, the console looks great. It is much smaller than the current model, and has a really nice black glossy finish (although fingerprints show up a lot easier). The buttons are now touch sensitive rather than physical buttons. It is also, as said by Microsoft, “whisper quiet”. Unlike the current model, this one doesn’t sound like a jet engine when running, and allows it to be practically unnoticed, a big plus when watching movies. It also has built in Wireless N Wifi, which adds a significant value to this console, as the current adapters Microsoft sells are in the $70-$100 range. They also added a 250GB internal hard drive, which is removable, but NOT compatible with current 360′s. If you are looking to upgrade, you are going to have to transfer all of your stuff from the old Xbox to the new one using USB drives (this 360 does not have memory unit slots, just USB). The console is also Kinect ready, and includes a specific port for Kinect when it launches this November. This port supplies the Kinect camera with power and the connection to the Xbox, whereas otherwise you would have to plug in Kinect to the wall for power AND the Xbox for the connection.

    Bottom line, if you don’t have a 360 and want to make the jump, this is the time to do it. If you have a 20GB 360 or a console that’s giving you problems (overheating etc.), I would say you should look at upgrading. If you have a fairly newer 360 model, I think you should just hold off.

    They aren’t 2 different consoles. There is something like a motion sensor that you have to hook up, and you use your body as the game controller. It can be bought seprately for the 360. It is coming out this November, and gamestop has it on pre-order for $149.99.

    Personally, I think it’s just like turning your 360 into both a 360 and a wii for $150. Minus the wii remotes and consistant saftey warnings. Kind of convienient if you want both but only have one.
