Speaking to US website Gamasutra, Microsoft has revealed new details regarding its Live Vision camera for the Xbox 360, which is expected to ship this September - complete with a free gesture-control software title.
Microsoft's Jeff Stone told the site that the peripheral will be shipped together with Totemball, a new game developed by UK firms Strange Flavour and Freeverse. The peripheral will track user's arm movements, challenging them to guide a wheeled totem pole around various environments, collecting items and attempting to avoid obstacles to reach the goal within a specific time limit.
Stone also confirmed that additional titles are currently in development, although no specific games were announced.
Rivalling Sony's EyeToy camera for the PS2 and PS3 - which also shipped with a compendium of gesture control titles called EyeToy Play when it first launched - Microsoft's Live Vision camera will also be utilised for video chat and face mapping in some Xbox Live Arcade games.
Microsoft stopped short of announcing a price point for the device although, as Gamasutra observed, US retailer GameStop has the Live Vision camera listed at US$39.99 with a release date of September 19th.
