Ha, I uploaded this in the rare thread a little while ago.
Either way none of it is real time....=(

Will they have demo units on the E3 floor?

Same video below just loads faster.

Never mind not the same video but you have to skip to about 47 seconds on the site.

Because by the time I posted this, I just login to N4G.

I've already read some article about Project Natal's new name, Kinect.

And while I still have to keep my opinions about Kinect and it's games, I gotta admit.........

I (almost) laughed with those white robes & Itagaki. XD

I read the comments and thought the vids would be bad - but having just watched them they're worse than I thought.

The top vid shows some Eyetoy style gameplay and then they're watching a vid - Mom asks Dad to fast forward and the guy does so using what appears to be an extremely laggy and slow motion interface. Why replace a controller/remote for such a poor replacement?

Then the driving vid - heh, just stupid.

Capped by the choreographed gameplay at what looks like a ceremony a cult may set up if they had too much money and no sense of taste (or humor).

There needs to be something BIG from MS/Kinect today or the whole thing is gonna tank.

Which is a shame because somewhere in this mess is a decent concept...

Kinect is clearly not designed with apartment-dwellers like myself in mind. I don't have much room to be flailing around like this and I certainly can't be doing all this running and jumping without pissing off the people who live below me. Count me out.

ridicoulus. Even for you Microsoft

Brewski0072626d ago

it doesnt look that good after seeing the video. I saw some pics and thought it LOOKED good but now... jesus!.

zireno2626d ago

you should watch the kinect star wars game video it will let you speechless..... and not in a good way. I mean seriously?? they worked on those "games" for the past year and kept everything in uttermost secrecy just to show an actor mimicking what was going on in the screen?? that's just ridiculous

NeutralGamer2626d ago

Xbox owner here...

I'm not impressed...

Not gonna buy this...

Gonna stick to my Wii if I want casual motion controlled games...

Narutone662626d ago

didn't learn from the mistakes of others. Sony did these weird commercials before and look what happened.

chidori6662626d ago (Edited 2626d ago )

Kinect= FAIL name, admit it.

and lol in this embarrassing event MS... just stop this please.

AssassinHD2626d ago

I like the name "Kinect" actually. It is like a hybrid between "Kinetic energy", which is the energy of an object during motion, and "Connect", symbolizing a closer connection to the hardware, since you are the controller.

DaBadGuy2626d ago

Most intelligent thing I've read all day.

zireno2626d ago

they should have called it Telepanect. it's a hybrid between "Telepathy" wich is the ostensible transfer of information on thoughts by means other than the five senses, and "Connect", symbolizing a closer connection to your in game character because you know.... the character moves before you actually do it.

just making a joke here:) don't get mad

Cloudberry2626d ago (Edited 2626d ago )

Because, if someone's making a (bad) joke with the Kinect name in my country's language, it would come to close with the same meaning as.........

"ERECT" or "HARD ON". XD

Nitrowolf22626d ago (Edited 2626d ago )

and after waking up and watching videos of it, i just don't know what to think
First off the panchos were unnecessary
and it looks liek allot of people left unimpressed
This event was WTF
i am sorry but MS wth were you thinking or smoking, here you guys had an opportunity to impress everyone but blew it with some pre-recorded crap(and you can tell very easily)

I think that M$ forgot that when it comes to video games you market to hardcore first, especially if your console is known as such.
From what I've been seeing and reading this whole Natal event will go down as a PR disaster for M$. They better nail the right price on this thing if they want to fix what happened last night with the public.

Nitrowolf22626d ago

i believe most of those people that went were more of a hardcore gamers type
MS should know that
thats probably the reasonw hy people were unimpressed by it, they had the wrong material to target a group of hardcore gamers. That one of the reason why son many liekd the short star wars bit

phantomexe2626d ago

MS does alot of things right they really do but Kinect does = Fail. Thats sad
