We didn't know the hoverboard was the newest recycled trend. Konami, however, crazy mascots on hoverboards a Kinect launch title. W00t?
Today we're mixing things up and changing to a roundtable discussion format in honor of the impending release of Kinect. Max Scoville, Tara Long, Jonathan Holmes, and Jon Carnage all huddle together around our tiny table and riff on the Microsoft Kinect. How does it compare to the Eyetoy, Wii, and Playstation Move? What are the launch titles like? Is its release an important moment in gaming? And most importantly, will it say that Jonathan and Tara are morbidly obsese? The answer to all these questions and more on a brand new DESTRUCTOID!

Microsoft faces a potential public relations nightmare after reviews of its just-released Kinect suggest it has problems recognizing people of color. First, ABC News explains how the console works.
“It’s an add-on to the Xbox 360 console. There’s a camera with has a depth sensor that tracks all your moments in 3D. It has a multi-array microphone. I can see it if you move. If I step out, it will go to a single-player game. You are running the show there, Juju.”
But a mere moment after its release to the public, news of the alleged facial recognition problem had spread like wildfire. Consumer Reports began refuting the claims faster than you can say connect four.
FERRET: “Yeah with the lights at the dimmest setting, the kinect didn’t recognize anybody of any skin tone.”
MANGIS: “So it wasn’t a certain skin tone that it had trouble with? It was an across the board problem?”
FERRETI: “Yeah. It didn’t really specify against any particular skin tone. It was mostly based on the lighting conditions in the room.”
The lighting may not be the only thing that’s dim. At least Gamespot’s testing resembled something slightly more scientific when it used several lighting scenarios and more than one person of color. Still, the console had trouble connecting the dots.
“The system recognized one employee inconsistently, while it was never able to properly identify the other despite repeated calibration attempts. However, Kinect had no problems identifying a third dark-skinned GameSpot employee, recognizing his face after a single calibration.”
If lighting issues sound like a familiar scape-goat, it should. PCWorld reports poor lighting could make for strange bedfellows.
“Last year, HP suffered a similar blow with its facial-tracking webcams, which wouldn't work properly with black people. At the time, HP blamed the problem on poor foreground lighting.”
But not to worry. PCMagazine tested ONE person of color and that SINGLE person gave it a positive review.
"Microsoft [says] ‘Kinect works with people of all skin tones.’…Here at PCMag we can corroborate: Our African-American reviewer gave the Kinect a 4-out-of-5-star review and an Editors' Choice award.”
Well that settles it. Or does it?
