Ricky tests out hands-free gaming with Kinect

The brains behind the Xbox and Xbox 360 are unleashing what they think is the next big thing - hands-free gaming!

Microsoft is launching Kinect on Wednesday, which allows you to play games on the Xbox 360 WITHOUT a controller - all you need to do is move your body in front of the gadget's sensor.

They'll be hoping that their new gizmo will help them take on Nintendo's hugely successful Wii, which launched in 2006 and uses wireless controllers.

Ricky gets a sneak peek of Kinect and even has a go on it himself - find out if he's any good!
