I was expecting a rebuttal at the end of the article from a spokesman for Kinect...

...didn't happen.

Bobbykotickrulesz2961d ago

Kinect it uh... It does stuff....Um.. Halo: Reach September 14th. Buy it.

Kinect is just fundamentally lame imo. There's a reason that controllers have been a part of the equation since the inception of gaming. You can simplify the controller, but you still need a bleeping controller. Really think Kinect will be the next HD-DVD add-on for the 360.

...Kinect camera better than PS3Eye however, addition of Move gives the advantage of 1:1 tracking without such a high cost on system resources.

However, add a Move type controller to Kinect and it would be superior.

60 fps camera > 30 fps camera

Fishy Fingers2961d ago (Edited 2961d ago )

Kinect would surely be able to track at 60FPS if they lowered the resolution (thats how the PSEye does it too) and it wouldnt need such a high resolution if it where just tracking an object like Move.

Close_Second2961d ago

...dont just focus on one. You need to take it all into consideration.

If the PS3Eye was so damned good then way is there only a handful of titles for it after 3-4 years?

Fishy Fingers2961d ago (Edited 2961d ago )

Well peripherals rarely take off and become successful, and lets face it, most of the PSEye games were/are basic little PSN type mini games (aka crap).

sayonara892961d ago

640x480 - 60fps
320x240 - 120fps

640x480 - 30fps
Depth sensor - 320x240 - 30 fps

If Sony have patented the move style controller with a light source on top, then Microsoft might not be able to make a controller like that. Which could very well mean that if Microsoft ever did make a controller for kinetc, it might never be as accurate as move

jack_burt0n2961d ago

yeah ppl tend to become suddenly stupid when this argument comes up, their new controller would have to have no bluetooth, no IR, no light source etc etc etc because each one is flooded with patents from both nintendo and sony.

The other reason why sony ended up using the light is because it doesn't infringe any nintendo patents and is camera based.

all the kinect money went into the thermal aspects.

Add another peripheral to a camera that already costs $149 ???

Bell Boy2961d ago

Lol Sir that is so true and is it me I am seeing more and more Kinect supporters saying MS will release an additional talk about a fool and their money will soon be parted!! They are practically begging MS to fleece them more and Kinect as not even launched.

Seriously you could not make this stuff

Kinect will have it's tough times ahead. I imagine it will sell really really well this holiday and then hit the return/trade in bins in no time once people realize that it doesn't work how they thought it would. Games will become recycled shovelware before you even get through the launch titles.

You will see games like Dance Central, Dance Party, Dance off, Dance Dance Dance...

EA Fitness, Workout, Kinect fit, Personal Trainer...

Rail Shooter, Rail Shooter, Rail Shooter, Fucking Rail Shooter..

MS will be forced into a corner where they would have to add a controller as an act of desperation, going back on their entire "you are the controller" platform. There is just no way that controller less gaming has the ability to have the variety of game types that we have become accustomed to. I mean, it seems like MS aren't even trying to appeal to the core audience, and I bet it's because they can't.

Lifendz2961d ago

There's only a "handful" of games for the PS3eye because Sony failed to realize that there was a huge market for motion controller games. Doesn't necessarily connote that the camera isn't worth a damn. Sony's games division may be many things, but it's not a division that releases gaming devices that aren't cutting edge.

DJMarty2961d ago


The PSEye can do 120FPS at low res & 60FPS at hires

Kinect does low res at 30FPS and not particularly well, Kinect is a joke and total lag fest.

marinelife92961d ago

PS eye does 60fps at 640x480.
120 fps at 320x240

cliffbo2961d ago

@Fishy Fingers

the Kinect camera has half the frame rate of the pseye no matter what the resolution and FYI at low res the pseye can do a 120fps the kinect is not capable of this the pseye also has a wider angle of view than the kinect therefore can work in smaller spaces.

In order to add a Move / Wiimote is going to be at least another year - and by then the next gen info will be coming out. What it boils down to is that MS betted on Kinect - and it is clear that was misguided. It will take at least 1 to 2 years to correct this and add a motion controller like Move. And what will the cost be then? $150 + $50 = $200, just to match Move functionality and not drop support for the Kinect crowd.

MS missed the mark by a mile with Kinect - and to make it worse the hyped the living daylights out of it - made grand promises of what will be achieved, sneered at the competition and is now left saying erm and ahh while the competition is getting glowing reviews and Kinect is being seriously questioned.

Take RUSE - no Kinect support. And what was all the hoo ha about Kinect having such enormous dev support? It is not out yet and seems to lose dev support.

not buying either until I can play REAL games with these devices...(ie: Socom or Fable) than I will buy them for my consoles.
until than just look at the crap thanx.. keep using the Wii until next year.

Ven10002961d ago

I'll be playing Heavy Rain, RE5 Gold Edition. Two games I haven't played before that should lend themselves well to Move.

mightydog012961d ago

you forgot ruse an RTS that as move controller as well

Calm Down Sunshine2961d ago (Edited 2961d ago )

"The game I want to see the most [with Move] is one where I'm standing up and a whole horde of zombies are attacking me. I have in one hand the ability to pick them up and throw them at each other with some kind of levitation force, and in the other hand I have a weapon, an axe, a sword - I can choose what I want."

...Get this done, and I'm in.

JohnApocalypse2961d ago (Edited 2961d ago )

I want to know how they do at the end of the year. I hope they will both fail so people can end this bullshit deciding on which one is better. You don't need them, there are better games coming out that you'd be better spending your money on
