You might like to be a bit careful when you're playing though, as one gamer found out the hard way. No, it wasn't a case of violent arm-swinging resulting in mum's vase being knocked off the table. It wasn't even a nasty twisted ankle from trying to moonwalk the wrong way.
It was a quick lesson in why you shouldn't Kinect naked.
I was trying out the Kinect Dance Central game and I was getting hot so I took off my clothee. I had no idea that the game was going to take A BUNCH OF PICTURES OF ME WHILE DANCING WITH NO CLOTHES ON!!! I can go back and look at these pictures but HOW DO I DELETE THEM?!!! HELP!!!!
Simply put, Dance Central, as well as various other Kinect titles, will take your picture while you're busy playing - a way of recording the moment, and the silly poses you're forced to strike. If you're not aware of this, and have a penchant for playing in your birthday suit, anyone browsing through the collection of photos on your Xbox 360 is in for a bit of a surprise.
Fortunately in this case, the forums are full of helpful information on how to solve the potentially embarrassing story, but - for the less tech-savvy among us - the take-away message might be that keeping your pants on is a good idea.
I like video games and music and cups of tea and noodles and beagles and colour-cycling LEDs.
