Got questions about setting up or playing Kinect for Xbox? Check out our video series for straightforward answers.
So I want to talk about the Kinect guide. Now, this is not to be confused with the Kinect hub, they're actually 2 separate things. It's pretty much a short cut to your menu. What you're going to do is hold out your hand to your left, and a little icon is going to pop up and bring you to this screen, and you can access your achievements and your Kinect tuner which is really important because, obviously during the game play if things get wonky, if the sounds isn't working or if suddenly you just disappear, you definitely want to get to your tuner. But also, when you're in a game and you go up to the Kinect guide, it's a way to get back to your main menu or to quit the system or actually use some of the options of the game and change your settings. And once again, to bring it up, all you need to do is hold up your hand to your left like this. That's how you get into the guide.
