Earlier this morning I spotted a video on N4G entitled “GameTrailers: Kinect Physics Demo Not Impressive” which is currently lighting up the site but something’s amiss.

So while this video is interesting and available below let us try spot why this is a complete fanboy article.

First up, the article implies that GameTrailers are saying that Kinect’s physics is bad, secondly the video is pretty old and has also been ripped from GameTrailers onto YouTube.

So with that out of the way do the trolls have a point? Are the physics in the below video unimpressive? Personally I don’t really know what I am looking at, the guys move and Kinect tracks them. It can track a couple of points on their body and can also remove the background and other non-participating objects.

All in all I expect Move to be more precise and to be great for for the more core titles while Kinect is going to be less precise but more entertaining for the family and casuals.
