Mobcast 77: Kinect Special

This post has been edited by the GamesBeat staff. Opinions by GamesBeat community writers do not necessarily reflect those of the staff.

In this week's Mobcast, Bitmob's Dan Hsu, Brett Bates, and Demian Linn conduct a Kinect-themed episode.

Hot on the heels of Microsoft's recent Kinect Showcase event, the crew discusses whether or not motion controls herald the death of traditional gamepads, how developers could use the Kinect to create game experiences suited to core gamers, and which older Xbox titles might benefit from a Kinect retrofit. As an added bonus, Dan Hsu interviews Kinect Creative Director Kudo Tsunoda at the event and, among other things, digs up the dirt on his game-inspired tattoo.
