Kinect, Move, Wii

Soooo Microsoft announced Kinect, Sony announced Move, Nintendo demoed the new motionplus enabled Zelda game. I guess the future of gaming is not to just sit there and play but to get heavily involved in the action. Some games will probably be amazing for house partys (Dance Central) but how long can these games keep peoples attention?

While most of the demo’s looked pretty cool, I don’t see how long I’d be able to play Kinectimals until I’ve seen every last animation and trick to do with the little tiger. “Well its not for you its for kids”. True but even kids get bored pretty fast these days so I wonder how that’s going to work out.

Anyways I personally think of gaming as relaxing time. Sit back in my chair or lay in bed and spend a few hours on Final Fantasy or my latest favorite Split/Second. With all these new get-up-and-play devices coming out, how long will it be until the relaxing part becomes obsolete?
