Microsoft's Kinect is bound to spark plenty of gaming injuries, just like the Wii did when it first released. Here's a few accidents that no gamer would want to experience when the peripheral releases later this year.
could you imagine how easy it would be to mess with someone who is playing a game...instead of standing infront of a tv like usual...just stand behind a player and do a bunch of crazy movements and enjoy the laughs that ensue...
kinect isn't for families,it isn't for hardcore gamers it isn't for gaming this is an experiment that microsoft's nerds thought with some hype & fake vids its going to take off,not even bribes are going to save them this time.
Agree with you on point 1 and 2. But I don't think this was merely experiment. This was a direct attempt to steal some marketshare from Nintendo and their Wii. Whether they are successful at it almost seems kinda moot. Interest in the Wii has dropped so much during its peak.
you will see that gaming from its early infancy was all just an experiment. It has evolved over time. Why should this be part of that evolution? It is not reinventing the wheel. it is just eliminating us from having to hold it while driving in a game.
But in real life you drive with a wheel. Why ever would you want to use an imaginary one.
Doctor: How did you say sprained your ankle again? Kinect player: I was umm.....trying to drop kick skittles and I fell
thanks for the laughs here have a bubble
Jumping and causing the Xbox to eat your disc when you hit the ground.
I never thought about that, put I think you're right, jumping around would probably mean the vibrations could cause the disc to scratch.
Kinect is an idea that Sony dropped on the floor and refused to pick back up and Microsoft picked it back up without dusting it off and handed it it unsuspecting, naive people. I am sure we will be hearing soon about sprained limbs, hitting other players with kicks,puches or colliding with them, broken items and fatigue. That last one especially because from what I have heard about in the Macy Kinect showing it sounds to me that Kinect is a stress filled experience filled with non recognition of motion,lag, repetition,constant adjustment and finding the right position and space to play. Let's see how long Microsoft can keep a child's short attention span or a parents frustration and stress level down before the Kinect is either tossed aside or sent back to the store
a falcon punch in someones face
that babie kick was priceless...I mean I wish it didnt happen, but it looked almost rehearsed .....along with the streetfighter background music and voices...lol this is going on my xperia..
That video itself is priceless. I bet the Sony's Move won't be as accident prone for one reason alone, that being no one is going to buy a black Wiimote with the Sony logo on it.
>>no one is going to buy a black Wiimote with the Sony logo on it... ...Unless you want to be owned by players with Moves in SOCOM and Killzone, or any other online shooter using Move that will follow. ))) .
