Super excited about the new Kinect. Still waiting for that Heavy Rain like adventure game where I can interact with characters through motions.

The active IR display was pretty neat and lol @ 7:02 mark. ;)

K2 is an improvement, more interesting than K1, but still buggy, and no matter how fast motion tracking gets it will not be as fast as thumbs.

This could be good as a standalone tech, but can't see much core gaming application, and making it mandatory for the opration of the XB1 is a deal breaker for many.

There is still a lot of lag I can see it easily. I don't like Kinect anyways but making it mandatory is stupid!

I must admit the tech behind this thing is pretty crazy.

Break it down for us because I see very little input lag, which is the same as every other hands-on demo has said. I know the cool thing is to troll all x1 articles right now, but stop.

EDIT: If you freeze frame it from second to second the screen shows very close to what is actually occurring like I mean possibly 10-15 ms difference.

EDIT 2: What a surprise Sony fanboys mashing the disagree button for anything positive, give it a rest and see for yourself.

I can't speak for everyone else but I disagreed with you because you CAN see lag. I don't know why you're dismissing it as practically nothing. It is still noticeable and in hardcore video games, that much lag (even though you claim it's practically nothing) will get you killed. And this is with a very simple program. What happens to the lag when it's a graphically intense game or over the internet?

Wow, im surprised it is still this laggy. Seems like certain movements has a little quicker response then others.

The no lag you see, is in YOUR mind.

Veni Vidi Vici1701d ago

Like hell the lag is in my mind. I can see it plain as day. All you have to do is watch for a quick movement from an arm or leg and then watch the screen. There is a delay.

I have no fricken horse in this race. I have a 360, PS3 and PC, and I mostly just play PC. I don't care who made the thing, I CAN see lag. I agree that it's definitely better than the first Kinect but it still has lag. The fact that you claim to be a Kinect expert tells me you're an Xbox fanboy. Unless you helped designed the thing, you aren't an expert. You're an enthusiast.

The absence of lag is in your mind.

Sorry loki...we forgot nobody in the history of ever is allowed to disagree with you.

I own both xbox's and their reveal disappointed me, and I've never owned a playstation because I can't stand dual shock controller.

So no what? I'm not a Sony fanboy at all.....but I still think what Microsoft is doing is really going to hurt their reputation.

All this does is help Nintendo out.

The lag appears when she starts moving fast. eg. 7:07 - 7:10 section

Shadonic1701d ago

yea but its very very slight lag but it would only be a slight announce. The issue that mostly plagued kinect then were the limitations of the device and the overall games for the thing. Microsoft isnt really making the kinect mandatory for all games there just including it in hopes of developers adding functions even as small as voice commands with the kinect. It looks impressive to me and after all the mods ive seen done with the previous version its clear to me that there is a place for kinect in gaming. The big issue for version 2 is getting developers to find new ways of playing that fit the device and for the already non supportive consumers. A majority of them hate it without any real insight into the amazing things it has done and the good games it has brought and most of the time when it does come to light they push it off just because of the shear fact that its a kinect title.

I mean when i saw the kinect skyrim demo with free movement and stuff and then the addition of the occulus rift on and earlier mod with free movement and now we have improved depth and accuracy so those will be all the more better. While im not getting a Xbox one at the moment im most excited for what the modding community does with the device and what developers put out this time.

SatanSki1701d ago

I think i heard in some video that it has ~66ms lag. Judging by this video its imo pretty acurate number. Not bad if you ask me. Its probably much less laggy then average fanboy brain ;-)

@ edonus

Wow deluded and defensive.

The lag is there, it's slight but it's still there.

One very precise and descriptive example is at 1:02 when she opens and closes her hand. There it is. That's called lag.

I'm quite impressed with this tech though. If they put it to good use in games, the market that is interested in this type of input is in for a treat. I'm more for the tangible feedback, but like I said the tech is good.

It looks like a black version of Johnny 5

M$ is doing exactly what I was hoping they would do with the 3D Cam Tech. They are putting in the R&D and delivering innovation way beyond what was there a few years ago. They are now the leaders in this tech by a mile. I still would like to see what the new PS I will bring. Having competition brings more ideas to the table and drives innovation even further.
Excited for the holidays to get here.

So now every game will be forced to used Kinect?

Intentions1701d ago

Ultimately it is up to the developers and type of game imo.

isarai1701d ago

Not for the games, but for the console yes

tubers1701d ago

Wish I don't have to use it.. might give me cancer LOL

(IK, paranoid much xD)

Veni Vidi Vici1701d ago

I'd be more paranoid about someone hacking it and watching you without you even knowing.

Gh05t1701d ago

What do you mean hack I am more worried about M$ watching me (Less watching more about sending snap shot pictures when recognizing new people are in the room). They are a data mining machine there is reason they are behind all medical records being digital and behind many technology implementations into schools. Think about how much M$ knows about you right now....

*X files them plays in background*

DDDGirlGamer851701d ago

It's really impressive, not kid stuff anymore that's for sure, it does so much!

OlgerO1700d ago

Come on guys, we are all smart enough to buy a PS4, but this video did show some impressive technology. Kinects sports is going to be really impressive.

swishersweets200311701d ago (Edited 1701d ago )

kinect is watching you.

Gh05t1701d ago

That is its job, is it not?
