Electronic Arts could be the latest company to dedicate an entire studio to Kinect and motion control game development. The publisher announced today that it will move its Salt Lake team to a new 20,000 square foot building in the Utah capital.
Considering Kinect games will be built from the ground up, they can't just use the current Wii/Move devs so they need to expand. As Kinect grows I can see a lot of other 3rd party devs doing the same.
How is this not reported? -End statement
Did any of you actually read the article? Try that next time
This is could be news and may or may not be about Kinect. Sony's push on buttons needed may be Sony's way of telling MS in a nice way not to go the path they have chosen. It would be cool if MS released an analog controller (that fit in one had like the Wii analog)which allowed you to face different directions to walk and had a trigger button on it.
No where in the body of the article or in any of the associated quotes does it say that the studio is being used for Kinect and Kinect alone. In fact, it mentions that they're migrating the people who made Wii games under the 'EA Play' to the new facility. Most likely it will be used for ALL forms of current gen motion tech. Jesus, can't "journalists" even write a proper title anymore? "EA expands motion control facility" would be more appropriate. But I guess you have to get hits, by making it seem like some Kinect/ EA coup. Ridiculous.
For the heads up...
Emphasis on (HAS) Chris399
[Has] - keyword. That we both agree on. Now that I've gotten your hit, continue to read my article filled with fanciful assumptions and a hearty dose of story-telling. 'Emphasis' is on bullshit titles being made for hits.
You just destroyed 4Chan
I was also reading this article, wondering what on earth it had to do with Kinect. The answer is nothing.
change the title
Summary of Article: EA will move it's Salt Lake team to a new, bigger building in the same area. It's bigger so they can design really good games. Rare also has a new studio, one that is bigger than the last.
Stop! Repeat Stop, trying to project your fanboyish wishes! Why can't it be for the development of all motion contol games?
Just another garbage ass article on N4G.
Anybody ever remember the success of the Sega Activator? Kinetic is just the 2.0 update of it. Kinetic doesn't even use Bluetooth IN 2010!!!!!!! Kinetic has yet to be proven to ever decently work, how can people be brainwashed so easy??? Nintendo & Sony have proven their tech live, MS has had more filmed demo's than live demo's. Kinetic is heading for failure, but alot of people in the US will buy it because of hype anyway.
What's kinetic? Not heard of that
If this is true it's not a wise move. To base a whole studio on hype, preorders and potential would be suicide. Microsoft has not proven that the Kinect has the staying power or fanbase to be more then just a fad or even if it is better than the Move or Wii. To use up precious time and resourses making a whole studio for Kinect only for Microsoft to drop it completely would be foolish.
