Xbox 360 and Kinect features

V Wi-Fi is built in for easier connection to XBOX Live, where it is possible to play online
multiplayer mode with anyone in the world as well as the ability to download game add-on
such as new levels and character. Going to appeal to mostly boys in school as they can play
with their friends on multiplayer and download extra levels and characters for games.
V XBOX live also allows the player to watch HD movies in 1080p quality to enhance the
experience. Demonstrates technological convergence as can be used to watch movies and
use the internet. Would appeal to middle aged males as they can access HD quality films
and watch them with partner or teenagers who would substitute this instead of cinema.
V Xbox allows you to access Facebook and Twitter to help you connect with friends whilst
playing. Most popular with teenagers as can socialise with friends and show off that they
are online using a Xbox which has never been done before.
V Kinect allows full body tracking sensor to capture movement from head to toes, to allow
amazing game experience. Would be popular with families and children as they are more
involved within gameplay.
V Inbuilt face and voice recognition Kinect. Allows player to greet and speak to characters in
the game. A completely interactive experience which can be personalised. Once again
would appeal to families and children as gives a extremely vivid insight into the games.
V Wireless controllers give the player more comfort and control when playing. Less wires
XBOX 360 & KINECT also make the whole experience more safer. This may help appeal to parents as the safety
of their children is their main priority and also the player knowing that there are no wires
limiting the area in which they can play in.
