HARRY POTTER FOR KINECT
COMING THIS AUTUMN, YOU ARE INVITED TO ATTEND HOGWARTS SCHOOL OF WITCHCRAFT AND WIZARDRY THROUGH THIS EXCLUSIVE GAME ON KINECT
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Eurocom will cast a spell among Harry Potter fans of all ages this autumn with the Harry Potter for Kinect videogame exclusively on Kinect™ for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft .
Based on all eight Harry Potter films, Harry Potter for Kinect allows players to join Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger as they embark on an unforgettable journey through Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and beyond. With Kinect’s scanning technology, for the first time ever in a Harry Potter game, players will be able to scan in their own face to create a unique witch or wizard to journey through the adventures of the film.
In addition, Kinect’s hands-free and voice recognition capabilities allow gamers to cast spells using physical manoeuvres and by calling out spell names, offering an extraordinary, immersive Harry Potter experience.
“Harry Potter for Kinect will engage Harry Potter fans old and new by bringing them into the wizarding world as truly active participants,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “Kids and parents will enjoy recreating their favourite Harry Potter adventures, from flying a broomstick in a Quidditch match, to battling pixies and duelling other wizards.”
Harry Potter for Kinect gives players the opportunity to experience some of the films’ most memorable moments, both as the relevant characters or as their own avatars, including visiting Ollivanders, choosing a house at Hogwarts, and confronting He Who Must Not Be Named in a climactic final battle. Players who master their lessons can also take on their opponents in competitive mini-games, or join forces with family and friends in co-op gameplay.
@GriftGFX: that could be said about anyone. Clearly some things he talks about are obvious but he talks from his own experience with games. (38 minutes ago)
The fact that he's got a little "community" behind him helps some devs take notice to what he says. (39 minutes ago)
@Moonwalker: I agree. Sometimes the acts and sketches get tiring but I like that he voices his own opinions. He's a true gamer that actually plays the games and he's honest in his criticism. (43 minutes ago)
@scoobs0688: His rants just seem like pandering to me. He usually just repeats the *loudest* forum opinions.. but even louder. (1 Hour ago)
That Joe is absolutely terrible, one reason why i detest these pretentious YT personalities if you can call them that. (1 Hour ago)
They're just too long. If he stopped repeating himself and waffling on and cut out his lame skits, they'd be like, 6 minutes long and way better. (1 Hour ago)
@scoobs0688: Agreed with most of that. Yes he can be a loudmouth and not all of his 'acts' are always enjoyable, i dont mind them though, but most of the time i find his reviews quite informative. (2 Hours ago)
