I strongly agree with his comment about how you need something in your hand for sports games, I realize that you really could just hold an object to simulate it, but that would just be weird, having the controller makes it all make more sense

JDouglasGU2286d ago

that's true, but I'm sure having anything in your hand with Kinect would work just as well. on the other hand, it is an advantage to have buttons on the object you're using just for navigation.

MS says it's easy with no controller to play a game, I don't think thats true at all.

Load up a car game hmm whats the controls? how do I slow down or speed up wheres hand break!?!?! sounds like hell Kinect.

By day, Jim Scott is a mild-mannered CEO, but when he changes into his costume he's
....CAPTAIN OBVIOUS!!!!

Dun dun duhhhh! Dun dun duhhhh!!!!! Dun dun duh, dun dun duh, dun duh duh!!!!

He can leap over logical assumptions with a single bound.

*Gasps*
"Look in the sky! It's Captain Obvious!"
"We know that, we can see you. Thanks Captain Obvious!"

It'll be interesting to see what kind of games are developed for Kinect. So far I've seen a lot of Wii-type games...

mephman2286d ago

Well, I guess we'll see what people come up with.

Of course Kinect is limited. No buttons, No analog sticks, no dpad. No input aside from your body. How am I supposed to play platformers strategy games or shooters? I imagine if they figure something out it will be pretty damn tedious.

with the controller jack a$$

demonddel2285d ago (Edited 2285d ago )

its not gonna replace your controller its just a new playing mechanic and im sure they wont be developing a game that u cant use the device for so dont panic we still have the old trusty controller
