Kinect Indirectly Takes The Life Of Another TV

Since there is no controller and thus no obvious projectile to be wary of a Kinect related TV death is largely unforeseeable. HBG brings you this story as a warning. The first Kinect related TV death, as covered by HBG, was at the hands of a ceiling fan chain weight. This time the symbol of two people uniting in marriage, a wedding ring, is the weapon of choice.

The victim is a Gizmodo reader by the name Brian who was playing the Kinect for the very first time when his wedding ring shot from his hand, much like a bullet from a gun striking down the hapless TV in the prime of it’s life.

The Kinect of course can’t be linked directly to the aforementioned incidents because a wedding ring nor a ceiling fan chain weight are included with the Kinect and are not obvious TV killing projectiles,but we would like you to survey your playing area carefully for hazards so this does not happen to you.

    I’m glad we have these testers to play through it. Then when the good games come out, IF they ever come out, I won’t have to worry about making silly mistakes that will break my TV.
