NowGamer: Nick Burton, Kinect development director at Rare has confirmed that Microsoft's motion recognition peripheral has no issues tracking seated gamers...
Well there we go, You can play sitting down with kinect END RUMOR
That is only using the dashboard what about a driving game I don't particularly want to play that kind of game standing up.....So still can play games sitting down
you did not read the whole article.
No. You can do a seated experience. Rare just doesn't want you to. Huh?
I heard Kinect has problems seeing black people to or people wearing black. So I guess Rares next article will be, Seeing black doesn't phase Kinect we just don't want it to. Kinect racism comes alive jump in xD
This statement reminds me of the Iphone 4 signal problem statement thing. They produce a statement not exactly saying you can (in the case of kinect) play sitting down.
The RUSE developer and several others have said they weren't going Kinect BECAUSE you couldn't sit.....so, what's going on here? "Oliver said around half of the 500 included movie scenes in upcoming Kinect title Yoostar require players to sit" So you can sit....IF it's NOT doing the body tracking. May as well use a $10 webcam, then.
Kinect does not have problems seeing black people. That was a internet joke. Seeing as it sees you in IR, it is not an issue
How can you debunk a rumor when physical evidence is not there? Watch this... You can only play Kinect games if you're standing up and moving violently. I have visual proof. http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... (A car game. . . Standing. Sounds GREAT!) http://www.youtube.com/watc... (I always stand to pet my tiger. You have to respect their magnificence or some shit.) There you have it. I have given you proof that the Kinect games must be played standing. I have used videos from my good friend Microsoft. I don't care what Nick Burton says. Microsoft wouldn't lie to me.
hoops, please show me where I posted a blog. I posted videos made by Microsoft for Microsoft in support of Microsoft's Kinect. They can say the thing makes appple pancakes and builds small huts for under priviledged families. But they show that Kinect games can only played while standing. They SHOW that Kinect games can only be played while standing. They, Microsoft, SHOW that Kinect games can only be played while standing.
No it does not end rumor at all. This is N4G.COM...and some blog site stating you cannot play seated takes precident over a game developer stating otherwise that actually is making games for it.
is NOT 500 movie scenes.they want to SEE *GAMES* using kinect SITTING down.demonstration videos of *GAMES* SITTING down from the developers to shut up the naysayers.not reassurance that it will be coming. because it sounds like kinect is just another rushed product and microsoft is PATCHING and UPGRADING just like when 360 came out."we'll just keep fixing and fixing until we get it right.""just get it out there and the gamers won't care." that's not how you do it.first,you perfect it.then add on top of it.not fix as you go.
Say what you need to say and leave. You don't need to make sly bashes at the 360. This article is about Kinect. And Sony was patching the PS3 when it first came out and still does it to this day with firmware updates. Is there something wrong with that when MS does it?
It's not out yet, of course they're still working on it.
I hate to tell you this but Nothing is perfect, there's always somebody that complains about something, hence the updates on products and software to try to meet the complaints of the users
Once the issue of sitting down is resolved, the next will be why Kinect can't see people in other rooms! WTF! Why can't they see me in the other room through this wall!? Epic Fail.
Most kinect games require standing up anyway.
How would an infra-red sensor determine the difference between colours?
The only way microsoft are gonna stop any doubt is to show a midget in a black morphsuit playing kinect while sitting down. Then people might actually believe what they say...but until then.
So where is the proof? Just show a gamer sitting down playing Kinect and we will admit defeat but as per usual we have to take the word of Microsoft and their cronies instead of real solid evidence. 'We could make games to sit down but we won't' Won't or can't?
Will be ready by tomorrow. do you want one where you just use your fingers? That one will take a week. I am sure M$ can pop these games out just as soon as you find something they have not done yet.
But if sony says something about there system and doesn't show it you believe them right. In conclusion it doesn't matter at what point Kinect does it will always have haters like tiamat5
Sitting doesn't phase Kinect? Really? Then put your money where your mouth is. How bout you just shut your mouth there Rare and make another Conker you fuckin idiots.
absolutecarnage that is a very ignorant thing to say. There are Move videos everywhere showcasing everything the Move can do. They haven't lied yet. They even explained the Move's potential using wire designs and tech demos. Microsoft has lied several times about what the Kinect can do to draw you in. They claim things without any proof.They say they can make hardcore games. Where are the examples of game intergration? Show us how you might make a hardcore game using Kinect mechanics. You can sit while playing? where are the videos or pictures showing someone playing sitting down? Why did the makers of R.U.S.E avoid it? No lag? I haven't seen a video yet that plays perfectly without the avatar on screen hesitating or lagging. I am a reasonable person. Show me proof and I have nothing else to say. Don't get mad at me. They are the ones lying to you trying to make you buy it without asking questions.
wait wait wait did you seriously just call me ignorant, Your the one who has his panties in a bunch about kinect. Seriously it comes out like in a couple months then well shall know all won't we. why does kinect bother you so much, heres the solution when it comes out don't BUY IT, if you hate it so much. They already said that they are setting up real demo's at macy's and at malls, march your ass down there and check it out. Ignorant to me is somebody that only looks on one side of things and that clearly what you are doing
I think the sheer volume of these "assurance" pieces should make people suspicious. I mean, every day it's another 10 blurbs, from sources of varying levels of credibility, with nothing but vague assurances of how capable Kinect is, or how unlimited the "potential" is. And in the meantime you and I still can't get anywhere near it to see for ourselves, and there's nothing close to independent confirmation. I can forgive some folks for getting the impression that Microsoft has embarked on an all-fronts PR campaign, hoping they can bluff all the way to commercial release, and hope for the best.
It's a brand new tech that they're evolving as we speak - give them the benefit of the doubt that they want this baby to sell like hotcakes so they're going to do absolutely everything possible to ensure it's usable in as many situations as they can. All it needs is the coders to figure out the best way of doing things - and that takes time.
Says one developer when all the rest say it cant be played while sitting down. And how exactly are you going to play a game with a camera that detects "Movement" when your sitting down? Or rather what could you do while sitting down that could be translated into a game? The only games i can think of where the character your playing is sitting down is raceing games. I can see Kinect detecting you sitting for those....but for what else? Why would you sit while playing a shooter? Or an action game? Or an Rpg? Oh wait...Kinect doesnt have those kind of games...
Because you'd be using your joypad, wouldn't you? Kinect can be added for head tracking, voice recognition, detecting arm movement and other nuances. It's very 2 dimensional thinking to assume that the only thing natal can do is Dance Central.
Uhh, didn't Greenberg confirm yesterday that Kinect CURRENTLY doesn't work whilst seated, but they're hoping to iron this issue out before release?
