Xbox Kinect given 5,000 Swarovski crystal makeover
Garish crystal Kinect launches priced $632
Microsoft’s controller-free motion gaming peripheral Xbox Kinect is set to be one of the hottest gadget gifts this Christmas with a Swarovski crystal makeover giving the device a festively blinged makeover.
Adorning 5,000 Swarovski crystals and more sparkle than a six year old’s glitter-covered art project, the Kinect sensor features the same body recognition colour VGA Motion Camera with 640 x 480p resolution and 30 fps capture rate as its standard gloss black counterpart.
Acting as your very own glitter ball when playing along to Kinect based, booty-shaking title Dance Central, the Swarovski covered Kinect will set wannabe owners back a smidge under $632 (£406), almost £300 more than the standard model, as well as a good chunk of their taste.
As the key festive shopping period nears its end for another year, it emerged earlier this week that Microsoft’s Kinect bundles are outselling fierce motion controlling rivals, Sony’s PlayStation Move, by a massive five to one as gamers opt for controller-less features ahead of pin-point accurate tracking.
