JD2014 does indeed use the Kinect. Relatively well if you've got folks that understand how the process works. But if you've got a bunch of 3-6 year olds waving their arms around you'll have some trouble. I find it's absolutely necessary to use the controller to manage the chaos. For slightly older kids it might not be as big a hassle.
As for using the Kinect for TV, meh
, I've got a Tivo and it's features aren't controllable via Kinect (or the controller for that matter). If all I had was a dumb cablebox, sure, I'd give the Kinect a try for TV. But once you start using devices with more features using 3rd party control just doesn't work. This isn't
a dig at the Kinect, just an opinion that any
3rd party controlling is going to be less than ideal for stuff like DVRs.
Now, if MS got their act together and really integrated WHS and their Media Center it could have potential. But it seems like the wind has long gone out of those sails. Quite a shame really, as their was such potential.
