Good read. It's always nice to hear how much labor went in to something your anticipating, from a more personal perspective. These guys obviously cared a great deal about putting out something that would impress gamers and developers alike... personally, I can't wait to see how it has turned out.

I absolutely love the kinect, i will mostly use it for the skype, and Xbox One control features. Using it to control the TV, the dashboard, and i also love how some games are implementing it into the games. DR3 for example that the zombies can hear the noise etc. AC4 has also announced they are using it in a way but want it to be a secret. I personally think the kinect is genius and from what we have seen is very accurate, and does a wonderful job making the X1 even better than it is.

You mean D4?

I keep reading D3... maybe you guys are referring to something different?

mhunterjr1817d ago

I think some people mean d4, others are trying to refer to dead rising 3.

I wish D3 was actually a new unannounced game in the works but unfortunately i keep making that mistake.meant to say d4..thanks bro...its D4 and DR3 all the way...

malokevi1817d ago

No prob, just curious. You aren't the first person to make that mistake.

I love the rare games and looking forward to the fitness titles...

Rare was way ahead of everyone else in executing well with the first Kinect. It is natural then to expect that they will yet again be one of the leaders with Kinect 2.

Wow! No wonder M$ is so committed to pushing Kinect. They have invested some serious effort here.

They seem to now believe that Kinect is so good that they best approach is to let the developers play with it and discover what works for them
