As expected, Microsoft has updated following Arcade titles for use with the Vision Camera:

  • Bankshot Billiards 2
  • Hardwood Hearts
  • Hardwood Spades
  • Hardwood Backgammon
The press release also reminds parents to check their family settings. Good idea.

Speaking of adult-oriented action, Activision's World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions, the first game to take advantage of the Digimask facial mapping stuff, hits store shelves today.

So Microsoft has camera support covered as far as pool sharking and problem gambling are concerned. Now where are the gesture-based games, starting with Totem Ball? I have read that the Vision is supposed to come with a download code for that flailing effort, but the $40 SKU I picked up at Toys R Us included only Uno and one month of XBL Gold (There are no titles mentioned on the packaging).

I'll try out the facial mapping feature in WSoP tonight and let you know if it does my handsome mug justice.
