    I have to admit, I’ve been an enormous Venture Natal/Kinect sceptic ever since it was announced with that sham Milo walkthrough and an awful lot of hyperbole. I have been making an attempt to maintain an open thoughts but the various rumours which have circulated about house, lighting and multiplayer issues have been a cause for concern. The advertising determination that Microsoft took to put this in the hands of mainstream journalists and celebrities somewhat than anybody who really has expertise and expertise writing about gaming was extraordinarily worrying.
