Michael Pachter in an interview with Geoff Knighely continues his speculation on the new Kinect. Pachter continues to believe that the new Kinect is aimed exactly where previously speculated: social and family gamers
Yea, well so far it's so BORING... god, I don't want two see two annoying people chatting with each other..
He'll & say anything to get attention. Especially something that ridiculous.
Everything I have seen thus far is VERY underwhelming. They are just getting to the end of the Kinect portion of the Press Conference and nothing is really all that good. It's stuff that has either been done before on Eye Toy or just straight up stupid and not impressive. In all Honesty Kinect seems better as a NON gaming device. The stuff it seems to do well is the stuff that isn't part of a game like navigating Xbox Live and even that is pointless as a real controller is MUCH better and faster in that regard.
True, This Pretty Much Shows the Guy (Pachter) will say whatever nonsense to get attention, also that he doesn't know crap about gaming, I'm sure he believe every part of the Pre-Recorded kinect Presentation was Real...
@Imperator- Agree 100%. Not hating, but I was expecting MUCH more. Edit: And honestly, the stuff I've seen from Sony's Eyepet is better than anything I've seen so far at this conference. That rafting game looks fun, but as a whole..Kinect just isn't for me. Its alot more geared to casual gamers than I expected. Edit: Dance Central looks awesome though.
I think the dance one looked great too, but that may have to do with the hot asian chick who could dance well. Also the music that was used while she was dancing reminded me of an episode of scrubs and i love scrubs. Here it is > http://www.youtube.com/watc...
The banter was award show bad...
it's NOT FOR GAMERS! I am a 360 FAN and I'm bored to tears and if I am being totally honest a little nervous, because I am afraid were the gaming industry is headed (THANKS NINTENDO /s) and mildly pissed off. All I want as a gamer is GAMES! If I want exercise I will hit the gym. If I want to call someone I will pick up a phone or use my cell. If I want to watch movies or EPSN I will turn on my television. You know it's kind of ironic that on one hand MS gives you the ability to access XBL with voice commands yet they want to encourage people to exercise with Kinects. Almost like an oxymoron. Where are the games besides the usual suspects, Halo, Gears, Fable, etc..? Come on MS please end this with a bang (real games) and not Kinect! Guys, is there another MS conference tomorrow or later in the week? Please tell me this isn't the only one. This is mostly all Kinects crap!
Then why did you bother posting :| for attention?
Super low point: little girl plays with imaginary tiger...
He means business-wise...
He didn't say Kinect was brilliant.
But I bet that even after this comment, all the retards will keep saying "DUR DUR DUR PACHTER DOSENT KNOW"
yeah, but who cares of the names right now, Microsoft conference is so meh, only good things so far MGS:rising Espn gears 3 Kinect: video chat, only interesting thing so far halo look ok, specially the space flight scene, but i don't like halo so i don't really care
Good thing he's wrong most of the time
One thing i´m sure Kinect can predict the future better than he does ? ;)
Apparently one of the videos went ahead of the person. So yea, Kinect can predict better than patcher. ZING!
WATCH THE LIVE CONFERENCE NOW! KINECT WAS SO MUCH FAIL! EVERYTHING AN ACT! GO ITALIA! GO AZZURRI!
If it's live then there is obvious lag, you could see the player jump and then a little later the avatar jumps. But on the river rafting game at least 3 times the avatar jumped without the player jumping. So it either mis-detected some movement as a jump or it's all prerecorded.
I simply can't wait for the gifs. lol @ the 2 people running in the same spot. BTW, I thought I am watching a Nintendo conference.
For now the conference is boring like hell.
I think they left a word off. Kinect is brilliant rubbish. That name is a joke too. I thought Natal was bad but I say stick with that if Kinect is the best they can come up with.
lmfao of course he thinks that. :)
paying patcher and geoff knighely to hype this so called kinect??.... be funny if kinect fails!!!! lol
I call Pachter a hack. Although Kinect does look interesting.
u saw this racing game....wtf...who will buy this
I think Kinect looks kinda fun, but I don't own a 360. I'm not sure how often I'd use Kinect, but it's neat for what it does.
Wasted on those horrible games.
he says its brilliant but will he buy one when it comes out?
if ITS PRICED RIGHT, the Wii crowd will. its right up their alley and its what MS intended this to be. MS is in this strictly to cash in on the Wii crowd. Look at the Ubi Soft fitness game. Bloody hell. Total rip of Wii fitness games. But it will sell. Not to us. But to grannies and the likes
Natal is fully not for hardcore gamers. Its going to compete or try to with the Wii crowd.
Yeah, that sounds like something Pachter would say.
is promising but scary and a waste of time.
microsft have no chance of winnning this years e3, im still getting kinect even tho its a waste of time only if its under $100 1.tired of keep buying a headset for the 360 because they always break, 2. i like the video chat feature truthfully the games look shi**y, and im really disappointed in microsoft's e3 conference
microsoft conference is one of the worst so far, kinect looked awful and GOW3 looked like a DE-JA-VU so dissapointing.
is it me or is Microsofts E3 BORING!
Dude they just started it and they gotta show everything on the Kinect first, now please get off Sonys sack, thanks.
First of all your a dumbass.Where did Sony come from? nowhere in my comment did I ever mention Sony.Microsoft showed all there games already.Gears,Halo look ok,would like to see more.Same goes for black ops....Kinect looks like something they focused on for little kids...check out the Chinese girl and that tiger names skittles.Face it,aside from a couple games and the new Xbox.The conference was very boring.Now get off Microsoft and learn to admit when someone puts on a bland show.
WTF is he smoking and can I have some?
Shit is amazing, not for me but for Girls and younger people and the not so hardcore gamers.
man you dont know how degrading that sounds.
Even the wii crowd is laughing
Kind of amazing they are spending this much time on KinX on stage when they had a whole "event" yesterday that is going to be re-broadcast several times tomorrow. Has to be the worst E3 for MS ever.
I've been watching these game demos live and I'm honestly not impressed but that might just be because of t he games. There's of course the obvious Wii Sports and Wii Fit rip-offs that I'm sure sony will end up having and a bunch of other Wii type garbage too. Not impressed at all by what is shown so far....hopefully other publishers can make games for Kinect that might interest me. I remain optimistic for PS Move but if Sony show the same kind of stuff I'll for sure have the same criticism for them.
....*shakes head* This is really embarrassing. I've learned never to believe anything this guy says.
Utterly boring, I am so serious that the only thing that interested me at the least is Metal Gear: Rising. I'm sure I am not the only one here as we all wanted to see some gameplay about that game. Seriously Microsoft.. get off the stage already and let Sony take over..
cutting watermelons FTW!!
I was really hoping for Microsoft to be over the top with this.... It sucks so far. Halo, Gears and Fable... Everything after those has been losing me so far :( And so Micosoft abandons the hard core gamer....
It's obvious they want the casuals. Which makes sense since they already have the core.
I'm watching the conference now on Spike TV and Kinect is noticeably laggy, so much so that it almost looks pre-recorded though I don't think it is. It's just laggy.
So I know it sucks. Hey Microsoft thank pacther for the endorsement.
brilliant at 150 bucks..... another Patcher open mouth and make little sense
Now know, Who's Bankroll he's on LOL!
There were a few things that interested me about the conference. Gears 3, Halo, MGS Rising and the new 360 design. Other than that I was bored.
Is like a wii without controllers and we all known how much we love the wii…
This guy is like Bizzaro from DC Comics.
wii aka casual gamers
