GGTL@E3 - "Ahh, the interwebs. People can do magical things these days. Slightly scary, magical things."
i was carefully watching the forza3 footage and it did not look real time at all. i mean it is a good example of whats to come but i think they should tell us this, just like gears2 last E3
Of course it wasn't. It was painfully obvious. Someone else was playing the game while the game's directors were acting it out on stage. It was sickening. and people bought these guy's products? IT"S A SCAM! how more do you need to see before you say "enough! I'm not that big of a sucker". everything was Fake: The looking around the car - fake The Joy ride driving & boosting - Fake Star Wars demo - Fake fake fake fake. It was a horse and pony show for dummies.
While harsh, yes it is true. It was all pre-rendered/pre-recorded footage. I'm not sure they're too confident on their product for them not to do an actual real time demo, rather than playing the "possibilities of Natal/Kinect" game again at like every conference this gimmick has appeared.
Hardly any of the Kinect stuff that was shown looked real. None of the menu controls and voice command and hardly any of the games looked like they were actually done live. And once you realize how wonky voice commands are versus how perfectly done they were in the conference demos, you realize that none of it was actually demonstrated. None of this is inspiring any confidence in Kinect.
It was either pre-recorded and they were trying to do it at the same time as the video or, worse, it was laggy as hell.
Milo all over again.
So does this mean that someone was pressing "buttons" behind the scenes?
I'm starting to doubt it.
pretty much fake. i spotted a few lags. like at 15 seconds into forza 3 game, the steering wheel wasnt responding the same as some dude in front of Natal/Kitendidwierupoewirwpeor iwpe
I'm guessing it was fake just so they could avoid something like another embarrassing "BAM Avatar Shoe" moment.
Yeah, exactly. I'm sure it works fine, but they didn't want to run the risk of anything unexpected happening.
Of course not. :)
Is Rosie O' Donnell the sexiest woman in the world?
well thats why they hired all them actors. lmaoooo@ Shadow Flare im going to steal that one from you
what actors????all those people work for gameing companies(except the little girl) p.s...stop trolling
sure, they KinAct
LOL! Oh man, another one. The play-on words for Kinect are getting really good.
It is not time to Dis-kinect from the hammed demonstration videos at Microsoft's conference. Now onto Sony's show.
lol I see hwat you did thar
i call fake. seriously. if it was lag, the game characters would move after the real person would. this was clearly not the case during the starwars demo. the game character was moving first , then the real person. lmfao really bad acting... zzzzz stupid people got sold though, ugh.
exactly what pwnzter said...the characters on screen moved before the humans did making it obvious it was F.A.K.E.!!!!!!
Something did not look right, not to mention the over acting lol.
Even if it was real I would still not be too keen on it since the game would be doing the accelerating and braking as the guy did not move his feet at all.
it's like the game character controlling the real dude lmao
if it is fake, which it bloody well is, it is almost like Microsoft are insulting the intelligence of gamers
During the more cartoony driving game couldn't tell if the woman doing it was doing turns and air-tricks with gestures or voice commands. More than once while doing both or either, she was either slow in doing them or didn't do them at all.
With the using your hand a controller thing the guy moves the cursor over the icons but how did he select it. He did no extra hand motion? I also loved the skittles bullsh1t.
You didn't see the time bar filling as he held his hand over a specific icon? They were also using voice commands, which you do have to wonder about because they were all wearing mics. But the one thing that sunk the demo for me was that kid who laid it on especially thick.
The avatar moves then you follow it In soviet Russia, Game Plays you
this car thing was mega fake. today's e3 was disappointing because of the sheer lack of in-game videos. everything star wars related was pre-rendered... I hope sony shows some in-game action tomorrow.
