Kinect stories

The new Kinect add-on for the Xbox 360 sounds like the future. It allows you to play video games without a controller, using fancy cameras and sensors to see where you are and what you're doing. It has microphones and voice recognition to hear your commands. It's like virtual reality, from the movies! It's the future! But is it any fun?
Kinect hasn't even launched yet — but that hasn't stopped the press from picking it apart and revealing its shortcomings. Issues such as lag, required setup space and whether the camera sensor will work with gamers who are sitting down are on everyone's minds. Cross the last one off your list, because Microsoft's fixed that problem.
