So Microsoft is offering Xbox One bundle with Kinect 2.0 for $499 ($100 more than the cost of Sony's PS4). So this post here is related to what exciting features new Kinect has to offers to Xbox One gamers.
battlefield 4 will support kinect functionality.. i just can't wait to see what DICE has in store for Battlefield community
nothing much just like ME3 had kinect features its not something you can use for hardcore gaming or atleast it hasn't been used till date the right way. also it shouldn't be dice showing what they can do with kinect 2, it should be MS and its studios. when ps3 was thought of being hard to develop for sony release killer games to show that extra work in development can be useful if done right if MS wants developers to take advantage of kinect 2 than MS should show them what its capable of and not a device you use to turn your system on and off
Skyrim. Perfect example of a good use of Kinect.
I don't see why they can't add things like in MS Kinect FPS demo for example tap your temple to turn on night vision. Since kinect 2.0 is way more accurate they could add hand gesture commands (for SP) like real special forces use. I also see new Kinect work amazingly for commander mode. It wasn't possible with previous kinect ( I got one, it's not accurate enough) but 2.0 looks way more promising. I can't wait to see what devs will come up with! Now that it's with every console, they can get creative.
Well if you look it the better playing in kinect games were the 1st party games. I pretty sure MS has Kinect covered. I mean they have dedicated developers for it.
Modders/Hackers did it the best
So voice commands I assume. Big deal. Here is the deal with Kinect: no matter how powerful and accurate it gets, using motion controls to move around in 3D worlds is NOT feasible. You need more than a camera to do this.
Good point, probably why this isn't how Kinect is being used. BTW PS4 shouldn't be used to make french fries
You are talking about the oculus rift. Which is what I am waiting for not this gimmicky kinect. I am talking about a device that uses virtual reality
a camera and a thumbstick... I guess an omni directional treadmill would be able to pull it off. Pairing that with oculus, you've got a pretty decent VR setup I would imagine. Using Kinect as a controller supplement instead of a controller replacement is a great idea. Paring it with something like this maybe? http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
Kinect voice features are actually, to me, pretty damn stupid. You expect me to pay an extra $100 for a camera that I just end up using for voice commands. Tell me how that couldnt be done with a simple microphone? This has always been a bit of a head scratcher to me.
Kinect is a mic, and a camera, and a remote control and a sensor...I dare you not to buy a smartphone with a camera and a mic that does face recognition . Can u imagine? You go to your friends house to play and ad soo as u pick up the controller it can load your account ? I think it's cool.
i'm interested to see how it's incorporated. If it's mic based, and simple gesture based (like grenade throwing)... then its a $100 waste of time. But there DEFINITELY is potential to be cool, but i imagine more so for kinect based games.
Really when it all comes down to it, how good the games turn out depends upon the developer. Considering how I've seen modders make kinect actually look good with a 3D world with free movement in skyrim, like it was really close to those indie films in future settings when they show VR games just with a lot more lag.
I accidentally disagreed meant to agree. Anyhow voice commands are nothing new. Remember the first Socom U. S. navy seals it used the microphone of your headset to issue commands. Now with kinect if it can bring what we saw with Milo and can bring the illumini room. Then yeah it will be innovative, if not is going to be a gimmick no more no less
I understand it does it all. But, majority of its uses on the 360 are voice commands unless you're playing kinect specific games. I dont understand how people disagree with me when I'm just stating something thats accurate from my experiences with the device. Of course, im talking kinect 1.
we are yet to see something special kinect 2.0.. Ryse: Son of Rome was good but need to see something better
What is sad is that people were using Ryse as a reason to buy the Kinect 1.
I find it very bizarre that people are excited by Kinect 2, the first Kinect didn't have a quarter of things promised & probably had the worst software for any system in existence (bar the excellent Dance Central). I think it's gonna be a hard sell to the mass market this time round.
its a MS device so expect over promises and under-delivered MS has been doing for 20 plus years now
Yeah.. That's why they own the personal computer industry and have so for those 20+ years.. Don't customers speak with their wallets!? They could buy out Sony with their q4 profits.. But yeah.. Nobody likes Microsoft.. What pisses me off the most are the haters thinking they speak for everyone.. Hate Microsoft all you want.. They don't care, and either do I.. But you DO NOT speak for everyone
Whoa there n4rc, MS didnt get where they are because people chose to support them. Whens the last time you went to buy a PC and had a choice of the OS it used? "Never" would be the correct answer. You don't get an option and if you did... I guarantee Windows wouldn't be the choice for most people. Just see windows phones sales verses Android and Apple if you want to dispute that. MS is a monopoly with windows... for now. But someday hopefully soon you may have a choice of say Google OS for your PC or Windows... if and when that happens, expect MS to start losing money.
@patrick PC=personal computer Personal computer=mac Mac=non windows Pc=mac=no windows=choice
I sorely hope you have never owned a PC or you are a fucking hypocrite.
@Patrick Good point, I understand when you are saying "PC" you are referring to every brand on the market that is not Apple. I completely agree that there needs to be an option when buying a "PC" as far as operating systems go. I do not hate windows 8 like a lot of people do, I actually like it. I would love to have a choice though when buying a PC...
Oh yeah I own a PC, a gaming PC to be exact. And yeah it runs Windows because they didnt have a choice in OS like they did with Motherboards, memory, graphics cards. etc. So I had no choice but to pick Windows. And no, A MAC and a PC are 2 different things. If I want a MAC.. I have to buy Apple since Macs are Apple. But in a PC I have a whole host of choices and brands so quit being thick and think a little. Competition breeds innovation. Without it, you get Windows. But I do have a choice on internet explorers and I choose Chrome because to me its better than MS internet explorer. So "Sitdown" just sit down and hush if your gonna be clueless. IGN15.... well, your really not worth my time but not having a choice doesn't make you a hypocrite, having a choice and still choosing Windows and then talking about it would make me a hypocrite. Think before you speak.
That is why they are throwing it in the the system and making it required. Honestly if it wasn't I don't think they would have any game out there that would show people why they have to have it and it would sit on store shelves. But like the first Kinect it will be a lot of gimmicky add ins for games that don't need it or games that just don't work as well as they should to make it actually fun to play.
If every generation introduced a mandatory gimmick we would be surrounded by useless crap now. Just make it optional and demonstrate it's abilities instead of going the cheap way.
Nyromith, every generation of your phone has had new features forced in and no one complains. Every generation of gaming HAS had something new. It's progress. The way the world works.
Probably for the same reason people were excited for Move even though the eye toy bombed on ps2. A lot of people want to give new tech the benefit of the doubt. And, in this case, a lot of people have gone hands on with and say that it does what they promise this time around.
It's nice to be excited by new technology, but if the software just leads to a creative cul de sac (as it did with the original Kinect), what's the point?
@ Grassyknoll, I would have the same concern if it were a peripheral, but it most likely won't lead to a creative cul de sac if it's an integral part of the system. Developers will use it in ways we can't dream of right now because they KNOW everyone has one.
This is why Kinect 2.0 is intergrated into the XBone. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
