The future of Xbox 360 arrives this November. Is Kinect right for you? IGN help you answer this question with a look at the upcoming games lineup for Microsoft's motion-controller.
Man your cells, gentlemen. Those Xbots will not leave this place alive!
Kinect is not for me but I can see where it would appeal to my son and his friends.
Then a preview of anything.. what the heck did I just watch?
I thought that myself. back in 06,07 wait for the future didn't work, but does now?
Kind of a crappy preview. Doesn't cover any actual hands-on experience in it, just pretty much a recap of Microsoft's Press Release with video from E3. They could have put something personal into it, like their own experience with the games and the such.
If its FREE. YES!
Here come the haters...
I don't hate it, just don't see anything appealing. I'm not even sure about navigation anymore. It will be cool to try, once or twice, but I think it will be more effecient to use the wireless controller. The only thing I could seemyself using this for is a boxing game, it would have to be a Punch Out sort of thing because moving around the ring doesn't lend itself well to this.
more of an advertisment than a preview
It probably is just a paid advertisement.
Microsoft paid IGN to make this video. -_-
This Kinect preview has been brought to you by Microsoft. Jump in.
I doubt this will be priced low enough to spark my interest.
not to mention only being able to play with 2 active people when all you see for the hardware is casual family games,I mean are they really serious about kinect or did they just put it there with all it's flaws ?.. Playstation Move is highly priced too to me,but am not going to get shovel ware for it! and that's why am getting it,for the core games like KZ3 and such,but paying for so many move controllers just to play a 4 player casual games (even hardcore games) is just ripping me off ! But I might just let my other brothers buy one each and the problem is solved xD !
even i got tired of Kz3 articles but do you 360 guys get tired of reading the same thing and why does everyone all way comment on the first comment even if it has nothing to do with what you say
would comment and click on the PS3 or move articles then maybe N4G would have more move related news. Take a look at the all the Kinect news that has been posted so far and you will that the first to comment are the PS3 trolls like GWAVE,Captain O, Godmars, Ghost of Sparta, Morganfell, MRV321, Saakings and his 10 alternative accounts.
So true. You would think the mods would be bright enough to do something about it. All good though. I love the attention Kinect's getting from the hardcore haters. It shows Kinect has potential. I love new tech so i'm definitely interested. If all goes well with Kinect, like being able to sit down to navigate menus then i'll end up picking it up a few months after it's release. Just like imma do with the new 360. Can't wait. A few of my gamer friends with 360's have been testing it out since day 1. So far so good. Quiet as fvck!
With is Voice control such a great feature? They've done it in games such as Tom Clancy's endwar and it has VERY little to do with hardware it's all software based.
"...Dance Central. Get off your couch, and shake it down!"
Do I have to say "XBOX" before every voice command? I would prefer to give it a personal name.
I'll just shout XBOX OFF in random Call of Duty matches and laugh at the number of people who's 360's turned off because they own Natal.
Your a mean one Mr. Grinch. But funny.:)
That would be hilarious! lol!!
From the video : "Kinect works with any xbox360's,so long as your xbox360 still works"... was that a pun..? :|
Yea expect something more hardcore next year... yea maybe...all 3 of those games.. Child of eden which will probably play better on move, heavily gimped forza gameplay and starwars game, which was presented by really lame fake presentation... Cant wait for your revolution MS!
Any attempt at trying to make sense of the all the lies, half truths and nonsense Microsoft has been spewing about the Kinect is described as hate. Why even bother? Half the people who are defending it aren't even going to buy it. Let people buy the Fisher Price like,12 year old girl and soccer mom toy and cross their fingers hoping that Microsoft will bring a hardcore game before next Xmas. Meanwhile I will be enjoying playing both casual and haedcore games with my new Move controller.
