"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

captain-obvious2685d ago

sony needs the same thing for move

Conloles2685d ago (Edited 2685d ago )

Sounds good in theory

SOAD2685d ago

Stop editing your comments Conloles.

Michael-Jackson2685d ago

It has much more potential imo.

El Botto2685d ago (Edited 2685d ago )

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.

I can believe you say such stupid things.

whydoyouask2685d ago (Edited 2685d ago )

...it just exploded.

@HolyOrange-

Oh...okay.

DeadlyFire2685d ago (Edited 2685d ago )

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.

Thx for the clarification on the term, makes more sense now.

BRG90002685d ago

Do you know what "dollars to donuts" means? Stop posting Cannata's speculation and claiming it is news. :P

Rainstorm812685d ago (Edited 2685d ago )

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!

Ilikegames762685d ago

going to use the Jedi mind trick on their fan base.

MiloGarret2685d ago (Edited 2685d ago )

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...

vhero2685d ago

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.

EVILDEAD3602685d ago

'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..

crapgamer2685d ago (Edited 2685d ago )

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!

gta28002685d ago (Edited 2685d ago )

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.

jmare2685d ago

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?

Arnon2685d ago

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.

psycho3602685d ago

@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?

PRHB HYBRiiD2685d ago

of course i want to play it but not that star wars game

dizzleK2685d ago

[email protected] making disco moves to play star wars.

"to use lightning, swim walk and do the monkey!"

JeffGUNZ2685d ago

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?

Mighty Boom2685d ago

Luke ... I am your Father.

SOAD2685d ago (Edited 2685d ago )

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.

Unicron2685d ago

Indeed. Most misquoted quote ever.

No... I am your father.

;-)

Mighty Boom2685d ago

SOAD: with that comment, you are now TROLLING. I bet you disagreed with me.

CobraKai2685d ago

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.

SOAD2685d ago

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.
