Word straight out of the currently underway Kinect/Natal Experience event; MS has just shown off a Star Wars game played with the motion control device.
"Apparently the player has to wave their arms to swing their Lightsaber" this isn't really a story if you ask me but this is something to note
sony needs the same thing for move
Sounds good in theory
Stop editing your comments Conloles.
It has much more potential imo.
Rofl this is Lucas Arts, they always do stuff for every platform. Except the PSMove version will have much better graphics, accuracy, responsiveness, precision and true force lightning ftw. The kinect one cant even distinguis you sticking your hand up in a wtf moment and genuine lightsabre swing.
Come back when you can confirm that it isn't a game based on the stupid Cartoon Network cartoon (Star Wars Clone Wars), heh heh. EDIT: @below What? The games based off of the cartoon network star wars show have all been disastrous. Ex: http://www.metacritic.com/g... http://www.metacritic.com/g...
I can believe you say such stupid things.
...it just exploded. @HolyOrange- Oh...okay.
Don't forget about the new SOE Star Wars Clone Wars Adventures or something MMO. Doesn't look very appealing. Republic Heroes looked alright. Other one didn't appeal to me at all.
Force lightning ftw!
LOL, Jeff seems hopeful. http://twitter.com/jeffcann... Thx for the clarification on the term, makes more sense now.
Do you know what "dollars to donuts" means? Stop posting Cannata's speculation and claiming it is news. :P
This is the one single thing that has my interest piqued in natal, cant wait to see it. Its just the Star Wars fanboy in me. Edit: *Kinect* - I fucking hate the new name!
going to use the Jedi mind trick on their fan base.
I want to be able to choke a stormtrooper Darth Vader-style. "I find your lack of faith in the force disturbing" But at the same time I'm not particularly interested in Natal, Kinect, whatever as an overall gaming experience...
Oh god how stupid are you gonna look lightsaber fighting with Kinect? That's all I can think of. Jumping about your room fighting something on the screen with nothing in your hands... Oh dear..
lol i gotta admit people are going to look kinda stupid playing starwars on kinect may the force be with you.
'lol i gotta admit people are going to look kinda stupid playing starwars on kinect may the force be with you.' Please we've been playing sword games on the Wii since year one..if you can use your hands then you can hold some cheap lightsaber made by Lucas Art and it will still work. The other thing is that for the first time..you can use your hand gestures for 'Force' type powers Can't wait..all of this and no Wii graphics..
I agree, you could probably use whatever you wanted to swing as the lightsabre and the ability to use hand gestures for the force is really cool. Nerdy but cool...cant wait. I know these are all Casual type games they showed off tonight, but some like this sound really, REALLY COOL. (Edit) Keep disagreeing with me Sony Fangirls! I love it! It wont make me any less right. It's okay though, last place looks good on Sony! Maybe Sony should have taken Notes and put on a show like this one!
I can't help but think that all games will be made like House of the Dead. You know where it moves from point A to Point B automatically and it stops when enemies appear. Perhaps that may not be the case but I'm really curious to see how they plan to make movement work if it wont play like HOTD. Cause I can't imagine playing a FPS and you having to turn to your back. It wont work. It just seems all games will be linear and will move forward on its own.
I thought the point of Natal or Kinect or whatever was that you didn't need to hold anything. Guess that wasn't entirely true, was it?
That's completely incorrect. In fact, one of the main adverts to kinect is the fact that you CAN use simple objects to interact with in-game. You're thinking of a controllerless experience, which still stands.
@evildead360 You may be on the right track with this one. But thing is how to simulate walk/run? HOw about they bundle treadmill along with the game ;) that way we can burn more calories by playing via nat.. sorry kinect
I think you want to play it, but you make fun of it because that's what everyone else is doing. Or did you forget that your posting on a site about video games at 12 at night (at least where i am). Don't lie to yourself, dude, admit your as big a nerd as any of us. And just hearing the fact gave you a partial, right? RIGHT?
of course i want to play it but not that star wars game
[email protected] making disco moves to play star wars. "to use lightning, swim walk and do the monkey!"
But if it was released or mentioned for MOVE, then it would be the best thing ever! Don't people get tired of being so biased?
Luke ... I am your Father.
Unfortunately, that isn't the line from the film. Edit: I got disagrees? Probably a couple of Star Trek losers. JK. I like Star Trek TNG.
Indeed. Most misquoted quote ever. No... I am your father. ;-)
SOAD: with that comment, you are now TROLLING. I bet you disagreed with me.
If there is one thing I don't understand, it is why you would get a disagree. That IS the line. It's fact, not an opinion.
I didn't disagree with you. Looks like 2 people don't agree with you about me trolling. Trolling goes something like this on this site. "X console is for douchebags. That is all." That's trolling. At worst, my comment is off-topic, but it's a reply to your comment which is also off-topic. It's only related to the topic by way of the fact that it's a quote from one of the films. However, your post is a mis-quotation, and I decided to point it out, and you got butt hurt.
What's the word I'm looking for ... Oh yeah: Whateves. I want to use a Lightsaber!!
ima use an empty christmas wrapping paper roll!! : D : D oh wait nvm im not getting this game i dont think.
I want to look stupid if thats what it takes to play with the light saver!
saver X=X SABER
hopefully it's well produced and not rushed......it might be cool....think about using the force choke or the mind trick with your hands....The last really good starwars games I played (besides KOTOR, which was more of an action RPG) were the Jedi Knight Games for the Xbox, it would be nice if they resurrected them.
Why hasn't there been a lightsaber game for the Wii?
The Wii version of The Force Unleashed, but it was kind of poo I heard. Yahzee reviewed it as well.
So we can all agree that it's no longer about the 360 all eyes are on kinect. So Microsoft DELIVER who cares what you steal, who cares how many it sold. ALL eyes are on kinect. So Microsoft, show us something and they can take E3. Again.
lol for some reason the star wars kid flashed across my mind edit: "Apparently the player has to wave their arms to swing their Lightsaber in on-screen battles. The brief footage showed the player taking on Darth Vader. And it looks pretty f-ing cool, we're told. " Okay that's stupid. Those guys didn't even see the game. They were told. =P
i really would like to see how this works out. Color me intrigued
natal ftw as a 360 ONLY owner this fills my eyes with tears
this is corny
We're told... lulwut?
"Dollars to donuts, that Star Wars lightsaber battle is a tiny minigame and not a full adventure title." via Jeff Cannata
Star Wars game seems kinda cool but apparently its just a Mini Game http://twitter.com/jeffcann... http://twitter.com/TheKevin... LOL
...but i just can't see something that awesome being just a mini game. If people want it enough, they will probably make it into it's own stand alone title.
Yeah I hope it turns into full game
Thought so. I wrote a comment up above regarding this and it just seems all games for "Natal" will be mini games/quicktime event type games. "Hardcore" games will probably be linear games that move forward on its own. But I'm curious to see how games will work so I will watch Microsofts Natal reveal out of curiosity.
No problem. I am sure they will have it for Move too. Microsoft has a nasty habit of showing multiplatform games and acting like it's theirs only. Last E3 I was almost sure the way they played it up that MW2 was exclusive to them alone.
...they do that purposely.
no wonder this event was private.....
I think you couldn't have picked a better franchise/game to attract the kids to Kinect.
It's a perfect game for MS's target audience: the parents of the kids. Think about it - when did the original Star Wars come out? The parents with the money sure remember ...
That would be me. I'm a star wars fanatic, a 34 yr old gamer with a 13 yr old son that also loves star wars. So yeah, I'm definitely picking Kinect and this game for sure
neogaf is having a field day with this. so far the impressions of this are negative.
The sad thing is, Kinetic is obviously geared toward Mothers and 5 year olds and really has no honest place for a modern gamer yet xbots are being hypocrites and saying how awesome the camera is when they bashed the Wii non stop. MS loves brainwashing the American public into thinking they are releasing awesome new technology for a low price when they are just getting ripped off and will end up playing laggy shovelware. The unbelievable amount of marketing MS is putting into this is scary, they want to monopolize the gaming business and I think its killing it. I believe Move is what real gamers should be paying attention to because of its applications for hardcore games. If Kinetic is successful than it will be a sad day for gamers. Games will end up as casual crap across the board and there will be a major decline in amazing games that move foward. Hopefully, this doesn't catch on and the short attention span of the casual gamer moves on to something that would be in the interest of all aspects of gaming. Kinetic is such a fucking gimmick and I'm sick of hypocrites backing it just because they NEED to be fanboys.
Yes it's a gimmick. But it seems like the next gimmick in gaming that EVERYONE will at least want to try once. And I'm sure it will be fun to show off and have fun with friends at house parties.... Same as the Wii did when it came out. Unlike Move which is basically a complete Wii knockoff. The casual market will be way more interested in trying Kinect.
The thing is though, Move is not a Wii rip off. Move was in development way before Wii and it is also a completely different experience than the Wii. If you watch more videos of it you would understand.
You really don't think there will be shovelware for Move? That's funny considering they basically took the Wiimote and put a technicolor anal bead on it. I'm not a fanboy of any console as I own all three and am interested in what motion controls Sony and MS can bring to the table. It's going to be a lot of the same though, I don't doubt there will be shovelware for Natal, matter of fact I'm expecting it, but to say there won't be any for Move? Clouded your mind, fanboyism has.
I'm giving up on Natal. I have little time for motion controls regardless, but this whole idea is a blatant attempt to cut into the Wii's casual market, offering nothing in return for their core audience and fan-base (who've spent the past year defending the bloody thing). And shovelware? I doubt this thing will ever be popular enough to attract shovelware developers. They'll test the waters, but if they get no returns they quickly pack up and stay Wii or go with Move.
Do you really not believe the shovelware will be successful ? I just think we are going to see a lot of it released on arcade at 10 bucks a pop, some will be awesome and other will be sh1t.
Uh...Still not interested in motion controls.
Did I just walk into a PS Move blog thread? LOL, finally a motion control Star Wars game that we all are hoping for and The PS3 fanboys still finds ways to troll even though not a single image or information are known. LOL
Wii has been out how long? Whats with everyone sudden change of heart on Motion Controls. I expect Move/Natal wont offer anything more than what the wii has been offering. If you have not bought a Wii I dont see how u can been interested in either of these products. DOWN WITH THE CASUAL, AND RISE WITH THE HARDCORE GAMERS.
I want a lightsaber game where I don't look so stupid using it. I'm sorry but I doubt most people are Anakin Skywalker with a blade.
