Microsoft once asked Criterion to develop a Kinect-compatible Burnout title to be included in the box with the motion-sensing hardware, but the studio rejected the idea as it had just started work on 2010 racer Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit.
stop it please dont
I feel ya dude. After wiping the tears of laughter from their eyes Criterion politely said No. This was 2010 people, imagine if it was today, they would have induced heart attacks from the laughter. Microsoft must have seen this ad in early 2010 and wanted a Burnout Kinect game lol http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I'm not a big fan of racing games, but I played a few burnout games and this would've been a terrible idea. You need to be able to react quickly and precisely to dodge obstacles at high speeds, two things the Kinect is poor at providing with it's inputs. Furthermore, burnout always slows down for crashes, so if the Kinect controls fuck up and you crash you get a 5 second animation of your car getting trashed, which makes you even more annoyed since it was caused by unresponsive controls.
Why can't Microsoft just admit that the Kinect is best used as an interface device for games than an actual alternative controller. The lag will always be there & no matter how hard Microsoft tries there is no escaping that part of the device. So use it what is best for it.
Talk about listing to the fans.
I like how they didn't say "Can you developer a game for our CONSOLE" rather then Kinect
"We're too busy working on x title" the games developer equivalent of "I'm washing my hair".
Next gen burnout please on ps4 and xbox1
@izumo_lee An over incredibly expensive sub par microphone.
please make a new burnout game, all about destruction, huge car pileups, like the old school ones and MAKE DAMN SURE it has nothing to do with Kinect whatsoever make it for ps4, pc and xbox1 no Kinect support!!!!!
You would make the cars accelerate by making, "Vroom, vroom!!" noises. "Screeeech!!!" for brakes. At least they had the sense not to agree.
F*ck that, but a next gen Burnout like 3: Takedown would be absolutely appropriate, please and thank you.
Fuck that noise, give us a new BO:Paradise already!!
