    Modern Warfare looks like more of the same, but faster.

    Tomb Raider looks pretty sweet like a combination of Uncharted and Resident Evil 5.

    If you don’t have Xbox Kinect then you better buy one or you won’t get the full experience from any of the games above. Plus, some of them are exclusively for Xbox Kinect.

    It seems like the Xbox 360 is now the Xbox Kinect system. Maybe they should even change the name?

    Are you excited about all these Kinect-enabled games or do you still like using a standard controller to relax and play video games?

    Most of the Kinect stuff looks utterly dumb, and could probably be done better on the Wii.

    Seriously? Kinect Disneyland Adventures? Are they even trying?

    Tomb Raider looks pretty awesome though.

    I could see my kids liking to play Kinect: Disneyland Adventures for a little while, but I wonder how long it would hold their attention. I guess we will have to wait and see what rides and other things are available in the game.

    Did Tomb Raider have Kinect features or was it the only game of the whole press conference that didn’t use Xbox Kinect in some way or another?

    It seems like the Xbox 360 is just becoming a high-tech Wii with voice recognition and a fancier dashboard.

    Don’t get me wrong, I like some of the Kinect features and Kinect: Fun Labs looks interesting, but I don’t know if these options are needed or groundbreaking.

    I wonder what Nintendo will announce tomorrow about their new system and if it will be groundbreaking and make Sony’s and Microsoft’s offerings seem like old news.

    Aside from Gears of War 3, Tomb Raider, Halo Anniversary, and CoD MW3, I think everything else was Kinect enabled/enhanced in one way or another. Not sure about Halo 4, either.

    I thought the Halo Anniversary announcement was dumb, we’re including SEVEN multiplayer maps, oh wow, a whole seven?!? Get out of town! I’m in, I already threw down my pre-order money.
