Kinect HD Is Xbox One's Best Idea

Thatgamecompany founder Jenova Chen wants to make games that "bring people together", that "relate" to people on a "human" level. The new version of Kinect, meanwhile, can read your expression and handle up to six participants in local multiplayer. Would it be utterly, disgracefully literal-minded of me to suggest that Chen and Microsoft's whiz-bang peripheral might do rather well out of one another?

Kinect is like the Hula hoop. Everyone had to have one, then after a month when people realized it wasn't that fun no one wanted one anymore.

kinnect is not for everyone and its certainly not for me. The allure of motion gaming in my opinion is long gone. Wii was great for a while but eventually even the wii sales waned and they still didnt improve with the release of the wii u. Kinnect, ps eye toy, move controller or whatever the technology is old and outdated. New technology as we go into future generations will be appreciated.

That video show cases a guy contolling a hellicopter with his mind. This would be something i would be excited about because it actually doesn't require any stress or jumping around sacrificing precise controls in the name of fun which really just means looking like an idiot most of the time.

Screw kinnect, move or eye toy voice controls or whatever additional feature as long as it decreases precision i can get from a controller i am not interested at all

It brings casuals together, as for hardcore gamers who want precision skilled based games, it's something to turn your xbone on and off.

maybe your point would have been better if you said pet rock instead of hula hoop. As far as i know, the hula hoop is still a viable product. Pet rock....not so much.

@creatchee, yeah that really proves the hula hoop is no fun............/jk

I wanted it, I still think developers can do many things with the new and improved kinect 2.0

High praise indeed for Kinect 2 from the developer of Journey. Hope he gets to make a game that will make good use of it sometime in the near future.

Their best idea was reversing their DRM policies. Kinect isn't a good idea at all, nor is it a bad one. I'm pretty sure the gaming community as a whole could take or leave Kinect and not care (if it was free).

But it's inflating the cost of this console by $100 so people are irritated by it.
