Game Boat: the most useless Kinect accessory

December 26, 2010

Game Boat: the most useless Kinect accessory The Kinect boasts a controller free experience which basically translates to no peripherals for the device. However, that won’t stop some from making some kind of useless accessory for the Kinect.

As seen before the Game Boat for Kinect Adventures is probably the most useless peripheral in the history of video game accessories. It’s basically a rubber boat you stand in to use for playing Kinect Adventures rafting mini game.


The boat doesn’t add anything to the gameplay except make the area you’re playing in confined and cramped. The Kinect in fact won’t even recognize the boat and could actually make floor recognition difficult.

As reported by Stephen Totilo of Kotaku, the boat comes with a hand pump, and is even capable of floating in real water. He does warn that the boat comes with a “powerful rubbery smell.”


More than anything a device such as this boat may be a safety hazard as two people jumping up and down in a narrow rubber boat may cause the little ones to trip over the side and fall face flat.

    Today when i was buying Call of Duty: Black Ops the GameStop guy was asked by a couple what was better to buy KINECT or PlayStation Move. And guess shockingly the GameStop guy said PlayStation Move was the best choice which was sold out. The couple pre-order two bundles. And i told them that they made an awesome wise choice.

    Finally GameStop is getting their fanboy act together.
