There's a surprise. Hands up if you're still excited about Kinect?

Cheeseknight282907d ago

Let me know when it gets games, then I might be excited. Meanwhile, I'll be playing real 360 and PS3 games.

To all those companies out there telling us to "give it a shot" (Rare) let me know when you develop something good then MAYBE I'll dump $200 on a possible failure.

pimpmaster2907d ago

it looks like there learning from the ps3.

radphil2907d ago


If you never played any of the Worms games, then you might as well call yourself a non-gamer and a nobody yourself.

KingME2907d ago

Does this article give any of you a bit of Déjà vu?

Godmars2902907d ago

Guessing that mention of Worms doesn't ring any bells...

CrawFail2907d ago

That's such a predictable, dickhead thing to say.

"These guys aren't well known, the can't know ANYTHING about hardware or making games."

God forbid they might actually have a valid point when tossers like you cover their ears and scream so they can't hear what they have to say.

Alien Breed is a brilliant game and is on XBLA. As is Worms.

ZombieAutopsy2907d ago

"Team17 is still an independent games studio with around 75 staff members. This makes it one of the longest surviving independent developers, now into its 21st year (it turned 20 on Dec 5, 2009)"

Yea nobodys /s

Shadow Flare2907d ago

Team 17 have opened a can of worms here

Baka-akaB2907d ago


They however will most likely outlive Rare , a studio only one step away from from probable dissolution into the dashboard and live interface teams

But gawddamn, its entertaining to watch people try to play the games on that thing! hahaha!

4pocalyps32906d ago

Obvious obvious.

Serious though you don't know who Team 17 is? I've had the opportunity to meet some of the developers and they're an amazing bunch. Very talented. Feel sorry for you if you don't know who they are.

badz1492906d ago

nobody? what about you? a troll 1000X more a nobody to the industry than them! I think you got wormed in the brain!

Rainstorm812906d ago

first it was the ps3 with difficult to use hardware and limited exclusive games.

Now the tables have turned and its the 360 with limited exclusive software and and difficult to use Natal hardware.

My mind is offically boggled....>__<

Baka-akaB2907d ago

By that comment, you have proved you're a ten-year-old. Team17 made the Worms games, one of the funnest games I have ever played. You're probably trolling, but at least try harder in the future.

MiloGarret2907d ago

don't call people children and then write 'funnest'

CrawFail2907d ago (Edited 2907d ago )

Don't you like having fun?

If you're being pedantic about the actual word, here:

electricshadow2907d ago (Edited 2907d ago )

Given his (her?) track record, it's fair to say that GreenRingOfLife is a child. Posting ignorant comments that only fanboys would say. I mistyped one word, yes, I'm sorry, my bad.

badz1492906d ago

it is, right? english is not my 1st language and I tried using Word and it's not there. so, maybe not but I think I got what you wanna say Shadow. WORM is a hell lot of fun! even after so many years, never got tired of it! still playing it constantly until now!

Is MS not allowing companies to make hybrid games for this device at launch? Something like when the 360 launched and it was a requirement that all games be at minimum 720p.

I know the use of a controller and the kinect is possible. MS never said you couldnt do both but they are more talkative about the controller free vision. If a dev wants to make a game using both there should not be any penalty (unless there is a clause in the contract).

Unicron2907d ago

Sorry but I have to ask... why market an add on where "you are the controller!".... then say people also need to use a controller?

That seems rather stupid to me personally.

darthv722907d ago

If it delivers games that you dont need the controller for then it is correct in marketing. The use of a controller would then be an option depending on the game.

It all depends on how aggressive the main companies want to implement their respected motion support in the games. Sony seems relaxed in that if you dont have move, no matter as you can play the games with a ds3.

MS on the other hand is talking up the full body type games first and will bring in the half and half ones later. Games right now that require kinect as opposed to games that use move an an option I guess.

I just am wondering if the launch will only consist of non controller supported kinect titles or will there be a few that go hand in hand.

Godmars2902907d ago

They are talking about making Kinect+controller titles later, but then they say a lot of things.

Just have to wait and see if their, and the general consumer, patience holds up. Would funny, and a bit sad, to see MS's own Kinect support fold overnight like it did for their cell phone. Especially considering all the build up an hype.

Sarcasm2907d ago (Edited 2907d ago )

That's the main problem, making Kinect a supplement controller instead of a replacement, it causes problems like this.

I remember when Project Natal was first theorized and we had discussions on something like Gears of War 3. Use the controller, but in certain sections you can use your hand gestures to navigate a map, or whatever.

But now that's not possible unless MS just eats their words and allows developers to do both.

Kinect is a disaster. MS might as well cancel production now.
