Xbox 360 camera spies September release

It’s been a long, long time coming, but after momentarily plopping off the radar, it seems that there is light at the end of the tunnel for the long awaited Xbox 360 Live Vision Camera. The US edition of Official Xbox Magazine is reporting that the peripheral has been granted a stateside release of September 19 release date, and will be available in two bundle deals. In case you don’t know, the Camera is designed to abet online gamers communicative methods with the added bonus of video messaging for games compatible with the device. Although such games seemed focused towards specific Live Arcade titles, certain developers have begun tinkering with its capabilities in mind. Ubisoft, for example, is integrating support in its Rainbow Six: Vegas for visual hand gesturing. And we don’t mean the sort of gestures you might wag to a moron who’s just driven over your foot in a clapped-out, family Volvo.

Hmmm, yes. Somebody needs their head testing on that one. As for what the TotemBall game entails, well, it supposedly works along similar lines as the PS2’s EyeToy games, with you balancing or guiding balls on the end of a totem pole, culminating in entry to some kind of giant pinball game. Two-player co-op options exist for this one. So, overall, good news then that the Xbox 360 Live Vision Camera appears to have returned to the scene. No news on what the European release date will be, mind. There was originally talk of the hardware being launched simultaneously across the globe, but we certainly don’t recommend you take that as a given. Don’t worry though, we’ll be right back as soon as we hear something more concrete.
