Out Today: Gunstringer and Nyko Zoom
Posted by Jon Wahlgren
New game and the means to play it
It's a big day for Kinect as two hotly anticipated products drop for the camera: Twisted Pixel's marionette shooter (words we still can't believe belong in the same sentence) The Gunstringer as well as Nyko's Zoom peripheral, a promising clip-on lens attachment that should minimize the space requirements for your gaming area.
A demo for The Gunstringer has been available for download from the Xbox Live Marketplace for a little while now, so if you want to try before you buy then give that a whirl. Unfortunately you can't download demos of physical peripherals, but we'll go body-on with the Zoom to let you know how it fares.
Don't forget, plunking down for Gunstringer also nets you a copy of Fruit Ninja Kinect.
Leading gaming peripherals manufacturer Nyko Technologies® today announced the Zoom for Kinect is now available nationwide in stores and online for an MSRP of $29.99. With a series of proprietary lenses and a simple clip-on design, the Zoom lets players enjoy Microsoft Kinect games in 40% less space, and requires no additional power or batteries. Perfect for apartments, dorms and small living rooms, Zoom lets two people play Kinect in a space that would otherwise only accommodate one person, and is compatible with any Kinect game. A breakout hit at E3 2011, the Zoom was nominated for Best Hardware in Show by IGN, GameSpot, Machinima and G4 X-Play.
