The future of gaming


Forgive us if we sound like old timers but video games have come a hell of a long way in the past 20 years. Remember getting unfeasibly excited about nudging a crudely pixellated character across a blocky level? Or loading screens that lasted so long you could nip to the shops for a bag of Quavers? Us too.

The launch of Xbox Kinect in two weeks time confirms the dawn of a new era. Hot on the heels of PlayStation’s Move and soon to be followed in the new year by Nintendo’s 3DS it, signals a change of tack from gaming’s major players.

We’ve all seen the Minority Report-style futuristic advancements and heard the considerable hype but which of these three new bits of tech is actually worth your cash? Allow us to fill you in.
