Harry Potter Video Game Controlled By Xbox Kinect And The Weasleys

You can control part of the next Harry Potter video game with your body, we learned during EA's Gamescom press conference in Germany today. Potter movie actors James and Oliver Phelps, who play Fred and George Weasley showed how it works. Watch.

This mode will be featured in the Xbox 360 versions of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1, which will support Microsoft Kinect. The game ships in the November.

Using this game to pass judgement on Kinect is ,to me, like passing judgement on the 360 controller because of the previous Harry Potter games.

It's a Harry Potter game, I'm not expecting it to blow me away or to even be interesting.

I have not seen any games, yet, that scream "Buy me now" but I do think they will come. Until then I will buy the Kinect for my kids and my nieces and nephew to play. No dirty little kids fingers touching my controllers, that's worth the price of enrollment right there.
