Microsoft 'Kinect,' Controller-Free Gaming System, Senses Players' Motions

Kinect is an add-on to the XBox 360 console, and pricing and availability have not yet been announced.

E3, the annual industry-only trade show, will showcase some cutting edge competition for Microsoft's new gadget.

Sony will press their Move controller, which appears to the layman to operate much like the Nintendo Wii, using two remote control-like devices to track players' movements and allow them to interact with games through motion. The company is also expected to discuss its 3D strategy.

Nintendo, which arguably started the motion-control gold rush, is taking advantage of the huge success of their DS line of handheld systems and touting a new 3D version that won't require glasses to enjoy.
