Kinect Can Be Used For Real Games After All

The first bunch of games for Microsoft's Kinect were...crude. Resulting in a fear from many gamers that the peripheral may not be cut out for more complex titles. Well, this Dead Space 2 footage might convince you otherwise.

In it, you can see the guy - if this is legit - is almost literally playing the game. He swings his arm, Isaac Clarke swings his arm. He runs, Isaac runs. He reloads a gun and Isaac reloads. He stamps his foot and, yes, Isaac does his mighty stamp, which is so mighty it can turn corpses into cash machines.

To move, the player simply leans in the direction they want to go, and to shoot, you have to press a button (there's a Wii Remote in the player's hand).

The video's creator, kick755, has even included the relevant settings on the clip's YouTube page if any other Kinect hackers own a copy of Dead Space 2 on PC and want to give this control method a try, maybe even vouch for its authenticity.
