After giving 5 good reasons to love Kinect, Cynamite has published the follow up article with 5 reasons to hate Microsofts new motion control. What do you think?
This is part 1 out of 20, right?
lmao did anyone else think the mom in that video was getting way too much into that ball game... the kids were just doing the truffle shuffle. i think kinetic is cool but you dont half look crackers while you're playing it.
Can someone explain the Hate for this Kinect thing? Why is it getting a lot of hate saying it failed. When they did exactly what they should have shown casual games since they wanna go for the casual market. What did people expect them to show games like Halo using Kinect. @darknikon that's why lol like you said it was pre recorder not live so lets actually see it live before we call it a failure.
@bioshock1221- You know what the most interesting thing about it all is? None of the people on N4G have played it yet...but there already judging. Kinect excites me personally, but I'm not giving the thumbs up/down till I play it for myself. Same with Move. Like seriously. The desperation to see Kinect fail is unbelievable on this site. Its true when they say that N4G is like a "separate universe". I've been to joystick and 1up forumns and believe it or not, multiplatform games are ACTUALLY hyped up as much as exclusives. And while almost ANY gaming news site has their fair share of fanboys..this site is easily the worst I've seen. Such stupidity and ignorance here. The only reason I keep coming back is because N4G updates much faster than any other gaming news site on the net.
deadreckoning666 spoke... you are god damn right!!!!!
Oh sorry , every journalist ( see how many reports across the net from IGn for example ) present WAS NOT impressed .. and for those who watched the videos and th CMs, we are greeted by ..by what exactly ? fake gameplay vids ?? if you are excited by lag ..so be it ... On the other hand , wii is working properly and Move showed countless videos showing how responsive et precise their thing was ... something micrososft can't do it seems
from deadreckoning666 The only reason I keep coming back is because N4G updates much faster than any other gaming news site on the net. THAT IS NOT TRUE gamenews24.com has the latest updates faster than any other site.. they up date every 3-5 min. continuously
This is why it failed... Pre recorded video and actors trying to keep up with it. http://cache.gawker.com/ass... It was anti lag, or mind reading technology lol. Jedi Mind tricks are at work here
Yeah, that was pretty insulting, but I'll reserve my judgment for when MS demonstrates this properly.
disagreeing with facts ...morons
Microsoft promised the world.
The funny thing is that they haven't really showed anything yet.
it's simple my friend. when the fanboys feel that they are threatened by something really good, they start crying. Good old Sony fanboys... And honestly, xbox fans have said bad things about Move, it's true. But nothing compared to the mud that Kinect receives already.
Why aren't there more people like you on this site. The event was pretty horrendous, but the objective of it was to appeal to the casual market. The fact that gaming bloggers and journalists were there expecting something extremely hardcore was just... yeah. We haven't even really seen Kinect in action. If they can actually pull off that Star Wars game, then that would be something to look forward to. There's really nothing wrong with rail-games. Time Crisis was fun :P I'm personally not interested in any of the motion controllers. The only reason I would buy them is to have very basic immersion within hardcore games, and to navigate the dashboard.
I'm still skeptical of the potential of natal er kinect. There's no doubt it's going to sell a sh*tload but so did all those casual wii games so that means nothing to me. All the videos I've seen of Kinect really just look like Eyetoy, I know saying that pisses a lot of you off, but the similarities are too obvious to ignore. Hopefully Microsoft has some hardcore games to show at their conference; if not, this new toy ceases to hold my interest.
is because Sony's Move already has shown Socom and Killzone 3 and (in 2015 :-) Grand Turismo 5) as titles to use it. Microsoft has basically turned Natal/Kinect into a Wii add on in HD with awesome social features. So the hate comes from the fact...EVERYONE thought AAA titles using Kinect were going to debut at E3...yet WE GOT SQUAT. Hate Explained!
What's with the "5" reasons title when they give "7"? Someone on that site really can't count.
errrrrr? Because the first and last page of the article aren't reasons. It's the index and an image gallery :)
A lot of konect hating today?
Since I commented on the pro list, it's only fair that I comment on this one as well. 1. Name: Really? As long as it delivers who cares what it's called? 2. Better with a controller: Depends on the 'game'. Track and field, volleyball, aerobic/yoga exercises and similar items will be better without controllers. This isn't a universal rule that it's either you use a controller or you don't. Depends on the game. 3. More animals: Yeah, tell that to the huge amount of money Ubisoft made off of all the Nintendog games. 4. Smoke and mirrors: Wait till the demos on the showroom floor to make that assessment. Last night was just the filming of a 30-minute infomercial, which are always about smoke and mirrors. 5. Casual-directed: We just don't know this yet, but it could be possible. Even if it is, if Microsoft is able to sell these to the target audience at even half the amount that Wii has, it's a complete success.
You deserve more bubbles! Keep up the fair and unbiased comments.
Correction above, don't know why I said ubisoft instead of Nintendo... I blame my excitement in reading six different liveblogs of the pre-MS conference banter while people wait in line :p
NO worries...Just glad to see others excited!
It's not even out yet. No one here has touched it...
Think it has something to do with the year of hype that was just as much absent of any actual substance than last night's presentation. If not more.
There is a freakin metric ton of hype this year. I hope everyone pulls though, as that would be an awesome year for gaming, but I don't see that happening.
it's not even out yet. No one here has touched it... bashing it for showing nothing makes more sense then praising it for showing nothing.
Lol It's been renamed from Natal to Kinect, and that suddenly gives no name websites a chance to get up there hits by hating on it all again, pathetic.
Your a PS3 Fangirl! Thank you ladies and gentlemen, goodnight!
Or that it looks like crap? Not everything has to be a competition here. Maybe for once the negative feedback isn't unwarranted.
For me, putting resources into Kinect is taking away from devs putting more hardcore games out there. That right there is a reason to hate. Fuk the casual gamer. They have the Wii. 2nd, who in their right mind wants to do jumping jacks in their living room to reload a weapon? I'm old, tired and work all day. When I come home i want to sit in my recliner and play some AAA games. 3rd. LAG. They are not only taking resources away from the hardcore, they can't even get it right! 4th. Deceit. The Milo incident, "VIPs" the multi-million dollar marketing ploy, it's all BS to get more duckets into their pocket. I'm pissed because I slept outside Best Buy on the 360 launch day. I have given MS thousands of my hard earned dollars over the years and they continue to fail me. Faulty hardware, BS customer support, over priced peripherals and now they are abandoning the core group of people who MADE THEM what they are so little Jimmy from Jersey will tell his mom to buy him Micrrosoft Party so he can play tennis with his stupid little friends. I have a right to be angry and I have a right to talk shiit about them. They are about ready to lose a good paying consumer. I own both consoles and I am friggin this close to just going to the dark side forever. Sony has great games, MOVE, even though a Wii copy, is not BS. You can use it sitting down. Bluray, free online, 3-D, STABILITY in their hardware...it's a GOOD product. /rant
1- You will hurt your family, friends, neighbors and animals 2- You will hurt your furnitures 3- You will have to buy another house to play inside and maybe break some walls 4- You will have to make exercise when playing game! What a shame! Leave my overweight alone! 5- You will have to buy it with credit. Basically 10 years, payable in Microsoft Points©.
Im not interested in ANy motion controls but your reasons are horrible 1) You must bee uncoordinated 2) Clumsy 3) Live in a trailer 4) Fat and lazy 5) Poor
