The Xbox Live Vision camera was a video gaming webcam made for the Xbox 360 console. It was announced at E3 2006 and was released in North America on September 19, 2006, Europe and Asia on October 2, 2006, and Japan on November 2, 2006. There are many games which have camera functionality included, some of which are: Uno, TotemBall, Burnout Paradise, Texas Hold'em, Spyglass Board Games, Pinball FX, Hardwood Backgammon, Hardwood Hearts, and Hardwood Spades. The ability to create an in-game representation of a player is possible using this camera and a suitable game, similar to Sony's EyeToy for the PlayStation 2. The retail games Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas and Vegas 2 allow players to create an in-game version of their face with this feature. Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit uses the camera to take a profile photo. The dashboard software released on June 13, 2006 added an option in the system tab to support its functions. Four years after its initial release, the camera was succeeded by the Kinect sensor and essentially discontinued.
Famous quotes containing the words live and/or vision:
“A knowledge that people live close by is,
I think, enough. And even if only first names are ever exchanged
The people who own them seem rock-true and marvelously self-sufficient.”
—John Ashbery (b. 1927)
“To stroll is a science, it is the gastronomy of the eye. To walk is to vegetate, to stroll is to live.... To stroll is to enjoy, it is to assume a mind-set, it is to admire the sublime pictures of unhappiness, of love, of joy, of graceful or grotesque portraits; it is to plunge ones vision to the depths of a thousand existences: young, it is to desire everything; old, it is to live the life of the young, to marry their passions.”
—Honoré De Balzac (17991850)
