Kinect hands on : Move over, this could be huge

M2G Writes:

Today I took a trip to London to try out Microsoft’s Kinect and having spend the best part of two hours in a building somewhere in Covent Gardens, I have come back convinced this is the future of motion control. (Kinect, Xbox 360)

Glad to see some more positive comments about the device. Looking forward to getting both this and Move. Maybe not day one, but certainly a purchase!

I'm good here thanks. Anyway, it's my opinion. Why don't you express yours, rather than shouting virtually at others.
iMad  +   1941d ago
the concept behind Kinect for ordinary people looks like tech from the future. And many non-gamers will want to try.

Sony know that and is very affraid...

Wii2 will also have Kinect-like tech.

i want to try kinect very much...

Kinect will sell well...just like Wii did. That's why Microsoft is making it. It'll barely work, but it'll be enough to draw a crowd, and that's all that M$ is worried about. They want the money it will bring, not to satisfy a bunch of hardcore gamers.
RememberThe357  +   1941d ago
Maybe, but ATM there are too many things that you can't do with Kinect. The input lag for motion controls kills it for me.

If a cramera is the only future for videogames I really don't want any part of it.
RageAgainstTheMShine  +   1941d ago

please make M$ more money with not just one but as many Kinects as you can. You deserve the best M$ can offer.

I can't understand
I started writing all kinds of qualifications of why I'm not a fanboy but I have deleted them and just gone to the facts.

I firmly beleive Kinect will sell more then move which really sadens me just like all the poeple including frinds of mind who kept buying x-boxes to replace their broken ones or pireted ones that got booted from live.

They are comited both financially and in their heart.

Move get's dubed wii HD how is something that adds a camera like the kinect but keep a controler like wii and makes it beter more accurate then wii and more functional then kinect a wii HD. I mean just the fact that move can detect power by measuring the time it takes to get from a-b not only up and down or left and right but also forward and back adds way more value to me then wii ever did.

Anyways that's my two sence. Microsoft just proves over and over again they are in it for the money and not for the consumer and for some reason clients just keep eating it up.
sikbeta  +   1941d ago
lol @ people cheerleading the few possibilities of this add-on of selling, you don't care about the device or the implementation of motion-controls in gaming, you just want M$ "to win" something

I hope PlayStation®Move gets the wii sales, so people will realize how great motion-control can be implemented in gaming and people will take it as an addition rather than a gimmick...
CimmerianDrake  +   1941d ago
Why would Sony be afraid of tech they've already used and have had access to for 10 years?

Nintendo and Sony passed on the tech of Kinect because they know it's highly flawed, and Sony has already had it in the Eyetoy. Sony isn't afraid of anything Kinect related. No one is.

***When I later asked if they would be ordering the device they told me “before we attended we had no idea what Kinect was, but now we will be ordering it straight away and also recommending friends do so too.” The grandson? Well he never even got to play.

Before our conversation ended I explained PlayStation will also receive a motion device soon and I asked if that is something she would consider, however she told me although her Grandson did have a PS3, she would rather order Kinect as being without a controller is a big draw.***

I know this will come off all fanboy-ish, but reading this all I can think is "BS." It just sounds like utter garbage, honestly.

"Oh, I like it because it doesn't have a controller, and I'll be telling all my friends!"

Sorry, that just comes off as PR BS to me.

You're right it does come of ass fanboyish; you know why?

Because it is.

While I'm here, since move is not getting as much press, can someone tell me what titles are launching with move. I honestly don't know. Besides the sports game, what else is there.

Everytime I hear something about move, it is being retro fitted for games that everyone have already beaten.
RememberThe357  +   1941d ago
Move launch titles.

@cgoodo: That doesn't sound fanboyish. The quote doesn't sound authentic at all. But I think that is more attributed to poor writing than it being false. I could see non-gamers loving the idea of not have a controller. As for me, I like buttons because until they can instantaneously read my thoughts buttons are the most efficient why to interact with a videogame.
Christopher  +   1941d ago
***You're right it does come of ass fanboyish;***

The mistakes in this, when read all as one, are priceless.

***While I'm here, since move is not getting as much press, can someone tell me what titles are launching with move.***

Yes, I make a comment about two paragraphs in the article and call it PR BS and you take a pock shot at Move. Which one of us is the fanboy again?

But, since you asked a question, and yet ended your sentence with a period, here we go:

- Ape Escape Fury! Fury!
- Flight Control HD
- Kung Fu Rider
- Sports Champions
- Start the Party
- TV Superstars
- Beat Sketch
- The Fight: Lights Out
- Brunswick Pro Bowling
- John Daly's Prostroke Golf
- NBA 2k11
- Planet Minigolf
- SingStar Dance
- The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest
- Under Siege
- Zumba Fitness

Just FYI, instead of posting actual fanboy comments that aren't relative to the article at hand, you could just look this info up on Wikipedia like I did.

I might buy kinect if it actually worked but as of now it doesnt. It has already been confirmed by several gaming news sites and even a few 360 sites that kinect doesnt work. If kinect actually worked the microsoft wouldntve staged E3. That is just a sign that microsoft has no faith in their product whatsoever. Will it sell? yes but thats because the general consumer public is stupid and doesnt see behind all of microsofts smoke and mirrors.
moparful99  +   1941d ago
Ok think about this, every article written that states kinect works and has hardly any lag was in a controlled environment where microsoft can attribute for every factor, however all of these videos clearly showing kinect doing poorly have been in the real world under real conditions... So all this article tells me is that under the best conditions with plenty of care for how everything is set up kinect works ok, under real world conditions with alot of unpredictable elements kinect lags and doesnt do well at all.. There's going to be alot of dissapointed consumers this christmas...

"And MOVE could be the next Betamax"

Sadly you may be right, and yet MOVE shares the attributes with Betamax of being better than it's nearest rivals, widely praised and used in the industry, and long-lasting.

Luckily it doesn't share the trait of 'late to market'.
That's why Blu-Ray launched as an unfinished spec, Sony were sick of having the better format and being out of the running before leaving the gate.

You are on some different shit. You didn't counter his argument at all. Who said he would rather play Move? All you are trying to do is divert the fact that someone doesn't like the idea of Kinect by saying that Move would do the same thing. Your exactly right that fighting game looks like crap and makes to look like a fool. But Socom doesn't, neither does LBP2. Hell, that sorcery games actually looked kind of cool.

To me Kinect seems pretty lame, but you seem to be enamored with it. And thats cool, I hope you have a ton of fun with it, but don't expect everyone to share your opinion.
tinybigman  +   1941d ago
hey V
I don't care about The Fight since I don't plan on buying that game. And like I said when I get home I want to relax playing my games. I have a wii and I barely play it and when I do its as lazy as I can. You don't have to agree but that's just me.

@remember thx you for that as I never mentioned Move at all. But now that he did mention it I am playing it for Socom, KZ3, Heavy Rain, and Time Crisis(the first time ill buy one of the TC games)

"...most of whom hadn’t seen the device before but had been converted almost immediately after playing it."

Kinect will be huge, no doubt, its something causals have never seen before(since they wouldn't have an eyetoy) and something which is has over Move are its games are FUN and EASY to use, something which made the Wii so big.

Kinect only has software that we played years ago, based on a cam that i bought years ago for the PS2.

I'm still not going to predict the future success of an unreleased product based on a a lack of launch titles.

The steering wheel was packaged with mario kart so it was guaranteed success.. Btw how many racing games are on the wii? If not for mario kart it would have bombed.. Wii fit is one of those things I cant explain, it's alot like rockband selling millions to be played with for a few months and then it just sits unused.. Wii motion plus is obvious because the core motion sensing of the wii is horrible so nintendo made alot of money by gimping the motion controls and then selling an add on which should have been there since the begining...

they only need $60000 per site per year...3 mill $ a year for 50 sites...and they all meat here on n4g..bad pr..briliantly executed

hey man do you want to receive some money? here is a job..create a good looking gaming site and write your opinions as if you are sony fan. are allready our fan and want we win this gen and beleive the cell is the future..good. here is our adv support

one simple question. why there is no the same bad pr to sony? because better product will win no matter what competitors say

the truth will be shown soon

Anyway if you read the article it doesn't fully praise the device, it offers a balanced view and gives good reason why it could be huge. It certainly doesn't proclaim the device to be perfect.
Dread  +   1941d ago

I appreciate that you are defending the article, but here in N4G, the only thing that will get you approval is if you hate on anything related to MS. Forget about the details, the problem with the article is that you did not hate on the device. Next time just say that u hate it. ;)

o and it would also help if you, even if it is unrelated to the subject matter, say somthing like KZ 3 rocks, GT5 is the best racing sim in the world,Home is awsome and poeple love it, sixaxis is the future of controllers, BC is not needed, etc.. all those comments will be appreciated by the SDF.

You just titled it knowing if its anti kinect MS will be onto N4G to remove it and it will be back to failed submission in an hour, its worthless flamebait title sums you up to be honest.

Here we go again
Why It COULD be huge. It the old "The Idea Has Potential" argument. And I agree, ON PAPER, Kinect works. The IDEA behind it is fine... however, I dont pay for good ideas, I pay for good products and Kinect isnt a good product. MS hasnt proven anything except that it does extremely casual games, and it doesnt even do those well. Get off this whole "It could be good" or "It has alot of potential" kick.. cause until MS proves it.. It has nothing. It may sell.. but that wont make it great. I didnt have an eyetoy, cause It just wasnt good enough for me to want. I do have a pseye cause my family uses it to talk to my wifes parents who live out of state, but I will not have Kinect no matter how cheap it is and not cause MS makes it, its cause its crap. I will have Move, cause it works.

I can imagine the price was nowhere in sight! As soon as the casual market seen that they'll be jumping at a wii!

This is where Sony have worked it out better, people will see a lower price, yes it will add up to more but the entrance price is significantly lower!

We shall see.
table  +   1941d ago
Well Bam, there it is again; those images are from stupid sized rooms with no furniture. I'm sick to death of this kinect crap I wish it would just fail already. Yes, I actually want this horrible product to fail. Unfortunately I can see it selling quite well in the US. It's all ads and fads over there. In the UK possibly as well, we are suckers for anything popular too. Sorry for the rant.

I actually find it depressing that the two countries who seem to accept product failure the most are the US and UK.

Being a UK resident I despair at the lack of even considering questioning news items that the general populace seems to have developed over recent years.

Much in the same way that Catholic Church once denied to possibility of a heliocentric solar system, so too do Sony Fanboys deny the likelihood that Playstation Move is little more than a glorified Wii remote. Anyone with two working eyes can tell you that's the case. Yes, the sensor bar is now a camera, and yes the nunchuck is now called a "sub-controller" but the technology is nearly identical. Not completely identical mind you, or Sony would have a lawsuit on their hands, but as near to a complete knock-off as possible within the confines of the law.

Regardless, at this very moment, a Sony Fanboy is finishing a 2000 word forum post detailing the numerous advantages of the Playstation Move. In spite of the obvious influence from Nintendo. In spite of his loose grasp of the technical aspects and yes, in spite of the fact that he has never held the Playstation Move in his hands. Friends, that kind of loyalty and devotion is a power you and I are not prepared to fight.
WLPowell  +   1941d ago
I won't even hit 2000 words.
Socom 4, Killzone 3, Little Big Planet 2, Echochrome 2, Resident Evil 5, Dead Space Extraction, RUSE, Heavy Rain. The move supports games with a core audience in mind first and foremost, what's Kinect focusing on? Oh that's right: "Outstupid Nintendo" is the new idea. I see the xbots have acted accordingly.

i guess this same rant doesnt apply to microsoft fanboys. in spite of the obvious influence from wii and the eyetoy. just saying
MmaFanQc  +   1941d ago
are you aware that the sixaxis had motion sensors? know...the controller that was released BEFORE the wii release date?

oh and btw, did you saw that big colorfull know....the same kind of mocap tech sony was working on to build a controller around it since what...2003-2004?

so to resume, you kinda know...JACK SHIT.

air1  +   1941d ago
please! you ppl more like scrutinize ms info to help justify why you cant afford $150 then you do critisize.

im up for critisism, i know kinect isnt "perfect" i get that it has lag but you ppl make it seem as if the thing is just completely broken and how stupid ppl are for how they choose to spend there money. then you have complaints like my living room is to small, im sorry but if you cant stand infront of your tv and lift a leg with out kneeing your tv and tripping over your sofa then you need to get your priorities together..

i can critisize all day long about how stupid ms is for catering kinect just to the casuals right now. im looking forward to a traditional controller and gestures kinda thing from kinect. im sure it can do it but it has to be all about casuals, could it be that ms is too buisy closing studios to have enough resources to support both like sony?! thats constructive critisizm and fair. not " im ganna look like a lunatic jumping up and down" how is that critisizm? that just shows how immature you still are that you are still buisy trying to look like the cool kid on the block only it woouldnt be outdoors its in your own home and you are worried about looking like fool, lmao..

any way, why dont you go wash your mouth, its fool of sh!t that you constantly spew. and just so you know i said many times that i will be supporting both move and kinect.

360 tag wanted in bpt
ps3 tag wanted_in_bpt

feel free to send a request and i will give you a fair review when they release. assuming you washed all that sh!t out your mouth by then so that we can critisize with ou the smell of sh!t..

Better yet, why do 360 fanboys act like Kinect is the next best thing since sliced bread? It's laggy, it has no hardcore games and there's nothing to get excited about. I'm not into this motion control stuff but if I had to choose between Move and Kinect, I would choose Move.
Unbiased_gamer  +   1941d ago
Nobody wants to see Kinect Fail but...
I am an owner of both said systems and I enjoy games on them both equally. Having said that I have my reservations about this "kinect". I was going to get it because my nephew who is 5 and loves to play games (but destroys my controllers) would probably love it and the idea of no controller is appealing for this reason alone. But I've heard that it has a hard time detecting small children properly. Plus I haven't seen any real video of the device actually working. Seems every video on YouTube is either a pre-rendered E3 vid or a broken real life video. Can anyone actually prove that this thing really works. Even this article doesn't have any video of it working?

I'll be getting the Move for myself and might let my nephew try it, I'm honestly afraid he might throw or smash controller. (we'll see how durable the thing is first) The Kinect for me as a gamer hasn't shown me anything I can get excited about and I honestly cant imagine anything that could unless combined with a standard controller :(. The Move however has totally inspired me and mostly because the tech is proven to work and I've seen plenty of demos that back this up. So for right now I'd be getting the Move for my self and the Kinect for my 5 year old nephew (if it works) Here is what I think will end up happening with Kinect ( I could be wrong but I don't think so) The Kinect sell a ton right at launch thanks to Dance central and the fact that Moms will eat it up because of the controller-less appeal. But it will end up being a pain in the ass to operate because there are no buttons to press and people will not set up their cameras properly and eventually get frustrated and give up. People will have too much faith in the system thinking that it's a magic camera that can detect everything you do and not understand how to really use it.

Core gamers will ignore it completely because they don't see any reason to support it (no games) so they wont help the casuals to even figure out how to use it. The only people playing Kinect in the end will be tween girls that understand the tech playing Dance Central with their little brothers and maybe the occasional mom for the exercise games. Yep I think Kinect will come in with a BIG BANG! and then slowly fizzle out :( I hope I'm wrong and we get some amazing games that nobody even saw coming, But only time will tell.
tiamat5  +   1941d ago
Oh look. Another article that praises Kinect without any proof. 'It works well without any lag'.Do you have video proof? 'No but take my word for it, I am not lying really'. 'BTW the controls were responsive and accurate right? Did you come first at all in the races? Did you hit every target? Play like a pro? 'No, but I had fun losing. Isn't that the point of playing a game.To lose and have fun?' Oh yeah one more thing how long did you play each game for? 5 min? 10 mins? An hour? 'I played for 10 mins and nearly coughed up a lung but I had 'fun'.'I can see myself coming home from work with the kids to jump around and sweat for hours when we are dead tired everyday'. Yes this article has convinced me. Come on Microsoft I am bent over. Get that golden screw you have just for the idiots and just cram it in there. (shakes head).

I love the bashing boys
Why is it as soon as Kinect has something good about it you people always say its just like the eye toy. My be it is but MS are doing a better job in pushing it unlike sony did with the eye toy.

I think MS have made the right move with Kinect they are pushing it to expand the xbox to none gamers and then bringing in the hard core games where sony are making normal games and adding move to the normal games which is not a selling point.

Also as for the price if people think £130 is expensive have a look at they have Kinect for £120 or £134 with two games which is well worth it.

Kinect will wipe the floor with Move as the none gamers just see it as a wii copy they dont bother with graphics or bluray ect they want uncomplex fun and this is what Kinect gives them.
tiamat5  +   1941d ago
Well said Unbiased_gamer . Just had to make one more post to approve of what you said. Everyone believes that people want Kinect to fail but there is hard evidence that it doesn't work. Every video shows it, their games show its limitations, even their own fanbase hate it. They don't realise how few of them are defending it. Even the game sites are cautiously optimistic about it.Their defense of it are flismy and the only way they can defend Kinect by calling Move a dildo,a sextoy or a Wii clone and calling everyone a fanboy when not long ago there were hundreds of Sony will fail articles populated by 360 fans agreeing with everything and jeering at us. Now that Sony is finally getting some love they want to spoil it for us. So in short I don't personally want to see Kinect fail but evidence shows that it very well might.
Bloodyghost  +   1941d ago
Kinect will sell more.
But move will make more hardcore games accept motion.

Also Kinect has failed to show me one good launch title besides Dance Central. And I am not paying 200 bucks overall for Dance Central.

On topic - I don't really care for Move or Kinect...not untill I see that game that blows me away, perhaps a propper star wars game hint hint to any possible Lucas Art devs lurking in the dark ;)(nothing on rails tho)
