Dead Space 3: Video demonstration of kinect features

A video of Executive Producer of Dead Space 3, Steve Papoutsis, who explains the use of Kinect and voice-control while they are being demonstrated.

The video shows off feaures such as Co-op voice control, reloading, switching weapons, and how it picks up a huge range of accents and dialect. (Dead Space 3, Xbox 360)

I hate playing a game with friends and family around, use voice commands and the thing doesnt work. I just get that blank stare from my wife like hey WTF are you crazy?

i wish companies would stop wasting time on kinect features that nobody uses.
hazardman  +   596d ago
Thats why its an option. Just cause we dont like it doesnt mean someone else doesnt.

I don't understand why Kinect was needed to communicate with your teammates and to call out commands. Binary Domain did it and it only used the mic for both the PS3 and the 360.

The game does look good and I can't wait. Hopefully they decide to patch the PS3 version to use the mic to call out commands and stuff as well.

Because Microsoft pays the publishers extra $ and/or incentivises them....
That's how business is done these days, I guess.

If MS was doing this every game would have KINECT features.
Lvl_up_gamer  +   595d ago
Ya how dare a company try to:

A) support their platforms and peripherals
B) support their customers with extra options that the competition doesn't have
c) stand out from their competition showing that they are willing to spend their corp $$$ on things for the customers rather then the customers spend their $$$ on the corporations....

I mean really. It only seems like the Sony crowd to complain and have issues with MS spending their corp money to give EXTERA'S and OPTIONS to their customers.

All you Sony complainers complaining about MS spending money to give more features and options in games...maybe you should be complaing about sony NOT spending extra money to give extra for multiplat games.

You people blame MS for being greedy a greedy corp and not caring about the gamers and then when MS spend money to put kinect integrations into multiplat games you get upset and blame them for poor corporation practices.

Where is Sony's $$$ to give to the developers to add extra's for the MOVE or eyetoy extra's and options? Why isn't Sony thinking of the gamers?

"You don't have the fumble around with the controller..."

Yeah, because pressing a single button is so much more complicated and annoying than yelling at my TV. This video makes me angry. It's so fake and gross, like the ME3 Kinect PR vid.

You hating dude. What's fake about it? The voice controls do work. It's OPTIONAL. If you want to use voice you can. If you don't own kinect then press the button. It's that simple. Fanboys are never satisfied.

If you don't see what's fake about these PR vids, then congrats, you're the target audience.

Rooster teeth such sellouts these days.

How?
They started out by being Halo fans who got endorsed from MS.
Megaton  +   596d ago
Yeah, they were birthed as sellouts.

Looks interesting, I enjoyed the voice commands with Mass Effect 3, and these look as enjoyable. Glad to see they are implementing it in games like Dead Space, which is one of my all time favorite series. Options are always a good thing in my opinion.
GribbleGrunger  +   596d ago
I'm just amazed how Microsoft has managed to persuade people to buy Kinect for voice commands when a cheap headset would do the job. And to think, every 360 comes with a head set!
StrongMan  +   596d ago
If they can persuade people to pay $60 a year for free features then persuading people to pay $150 for a mic is no problem.
Lvl_up_gamer  +   595d ago
That's not as bad as Sony charging $50 a year for a free DLing in the background feature....

Funny how the hating only comes from the Sony camp.

PASS....PC version always for me, $10 cheaper, immensly better visuals, way better performance, consoles are best for their respective exclusives, for multiplats, there is no question, the pc version will always be far, far better.

kinect and move are garbage, imo. they could have spent those 100's of millions wasted on it to make some new ip's

i do not know a single gamer over 12 who honestly even considers playing a game with either
Monstar  +   596d ago
Lol, great marketing...NOT, it so fucking scripted and fake its hilarious. The satisfaction of reloading a gun is by YOU doing it, either by real or by pressing something or having the action which make its feel better, SAYING reload is by far the dumbest thing, and honestly takes you away from the controls or sense of controlling the game, IMO.

Casuals and simplicity (linear games, qte, auto aim noob shit) get enough shit already and now with kinect auto noob controls..it doesn't end.

I was expecting actual motion features.

Like actually stomping the floor or swinging the gun(faster you hit the same it does in game or something like that) etc

What bull is this? Anyways dont have kinect or an xbox but wow kinect is not being put to use at all.

I have a feeling Dead Space 3 is going to be a shooter.

Off-topic,

but it looks like Steve lost a lot of weight. Good for him!! Maybe he got the inspiration for all the action parts from all the "dudebros" at the gym.
Monstar  +   596d ago
pretty much, his ego has definitely been affected by cliffy's image, hence the game playing more like gears now and his ugly face interrupting footage.

Fuck Kinect.
