Kotaku: When you play Kung Fu Live, a game not for the Xbox 360, your body is the controller. This is a game for PlayStation 3, not for Microsoft's controller-free Kinect. Yet the effect is impressive, similar and enjoyably ridiculous
Actually it looks really dumb. I am not spending $60 on this.
. Kung Fu Live is $15 & PlayStation Eye exclusive (yet?).
Haha, I didn't know it was a downloadable game. I still won't get it though, but it is nice to know that the PS3 Eye is more powerful than Kinect. Take that Micro$oft
looks just like a kinect game with better graphics and it works...
I think it looks sweet. Just as embarrassing to play as Kinect but you can do a lot of moves and it looks fun to play. Also just a kick in the face to those who say that the PSeye can't do what Kinect can. I think Sony will do more of these augmented reality type of games and even controller less just to prove the variety that it has over Kinect. Move + PSeye = Controller/Controller less gaming Kinect = Controller less/Button less/Rails Omega4 is scared.
These kinds of games have been on the Playstation library since PS2 era. Kinect games can be found being better on PS2 eyetoy library. Funny how PS3 has been doing this kind of controllerless gaming since year one with up to 4 unique titles but back then those that support kinitic now never gave a damn about games like Creature Feature or Topoq and those show more gameplay and gaming challenge than anything shown for kinect 5yrs later. If ms had a game just as good as this for kinect they would charge $50 for it and supporters will still buy it and call it unique innovation. The crap that people support and take from ms this gen all in the name of winning is staggering
As a whole, I don't like these new motion controllers, but even so, this is not the best Move game that is out. Sorcery definitely is better in a lot of ways. Kotaku: "The best PS3 game is like a Kinect game" Your "enthusiasm" is a thinly-veiled attempt to suggest full-body motion-controlled games to being better than move-centered games is less than admirable. Even if I haven't seen Sorcery, I wouldn't have agreed with that statement. All that statement does is try to attempt to say is: "if this is the best PS3 game, and it's like a kinect game, wouldn't kincect games be better?" Just go doctor some more clips, Kotaku: leave the writing to writers.
It Only Does Everything
This game is not for the move ^^ it could be i suppose but its just the pseye :P
That's better than ANYTHING on Kinect...
wow.. I was going to get it even if it was $60.. but for $15.. I would pre-order it right away... too bad you can't pre-order on PSN.. :D
That's alright then, because Sony don't see it as a $60 game either, hence why it's a downloadable title.
Games Like Fat Princess and Wipeout HD ARE fIFTEEN BUCKS.... THE PRICE HAS NO INDICATION ON QUALITY....
He did not say that the $15 game was bad
Aren't Move specific titles $40 where Kinect will be $50? Though really, I'd rather see a "lightgun" game with $60 worth of production than something cheaper. I mean, imagine 8 Days to Vegas as an on rails shooter. @ALFAxD_CENTAURO: I know. If Sony had put more support behind the Eye, games like this would have been out sooner. And more than likely, without all this crap over motion control, Wii and Kinect, no one would have been paying it any attention.
This is a PS Eye game, not PS Move game.
I'm definitely playing this with my nerf ninja sword.
Of fat guys in their underwear playing this game.
it does look like the best of the kinect launch lineup and its only $15 on psn.
Nice 2D tracking.... @Fishy Fingers Obviously it looks the most fun its on the PS3 >_>
Yup, but the funny thing is, this looks like the most enjoyable full body motion control game coming (as of now) and it's 2D and requires a £20 camera. By, most enjoyable, I imagine for 20 minutes or so. Then I'll have my pad back please :)
Omega, Please defend this video! I am dying to hear what you have to say about it!! http://www.youtube.com/watc... Move + PSeye = Controller/Controller less gaming Kinect = Controller less/Button less/Rails
damn that avatar is having a fucking siezure. and look at the restless leg syndome. fuck kinect is so whack.
pity Kinect can't do it
Nice damage control. at least it can get this right, unlike kinect. you don't see them flailing around in impossible positions on screen, lagging, or otherwise just not being picked up at all.
Same can be said about Move, It can do 3D tracking but Wii can't, but you still call it a Wii clone, hypocrite.
funny as shit,.. because its truth,..
. In my opinion, it looks great. Really great. The player's actions mimicked just like in the game, but I was more impressed about how simple the actions would performed. Like that jumping back-flip. The guy's obviously didn't do a 100% back flip, but the game & PlayStation Eye caught the guy's simple body gesture of back flipping (?) & it works.
Looks better and more fun than all the kinect games combined lol
I'd ask if a headband came with the game, but then its a download, isn't it :( Though honestly, who expecting to hear about someone getting injured shortly after this game is released?
I swear for anyone who plays this game in their house better like move everyone out the room because you basically putting their lives in dangers with all those random kicks and punches flying around. your not evern watching where you kick or punch your eyes are only on the sreen. What if you kcik your bro, sis, or kid in the head accidently?
then you're a fool for not preparing the proper space to play the game in. That's like asking "if I hang this punching bag up, what if I accidentally punch someone?" when you do things like that, you prepare a space to do so in safely.
what if you have a kid, lets say a toddler who sees you playing and wants to play to. What happens when they walk up on you without you knowing that they are there? when using a punching bag your body and eyes are focused on the bag itself, with this game your eyes are focused on the screen where as your body is aiming at the sides. So your focus is off.
Learn to be a better parent I guess. What if your kid walks outside when you're backing out of the garage and you KILL THEM?! I guess we better move the neighborhood around to better suit my backing up.
Well I guess you kick them in the face and teach them not to come by you. Seriously though being more attentive to your surroundings helps.
well when they see you flailing around, and refuse to pay attention to your flails, its their fault. common sense always prevails.
If you kick your bro, sis, or kid in the head you should record it and upload it onto youtube for the world to enjoy! Hilarious.
What will this game do it someone else was walking behind the player? Or if the dog kept passing through the frame. Someone should test that.
Kung Fu Live Is The Best "PLAYSTATION EYE" Game On PlayStation 3. There, I fixed the title. lol
I like the title the way it is.
Yeap, looks better for a $15 Game.
This is on PS3 using the PS Eye? Darn it I was misled by MS again!
Uh-hu. Anyone hear of a game called Fighters Uncaged? Seems more impressive to me than this. Although I will admit that I plan on downloading Kung Fu Live, I just don't find it nearly as impressive...Of course Fighters Uncached uses Kinect and isn't a 2D side scroller so it must suck right?......
If you could add some footage, then we could see what you're trying to tell us
Southern, how did he manage to take the lag into consideration when he ducked back from a punch that hadn't been thrown yet? did you notice that
I personally like how the guy kicks and moves back a little, then the game decides to kick and punch a little later. That was an awesome video that showcases why the PSEye $15 game performs better than a Kinect $60 game.
ever heard of a game called the fight: lights out? seems more impressive to me than this. Although I'll admit I do plan on downloading Kung Fu Live, I just don't find it nearly as impressive... OF course The Fight: Lights Out uses Move and isn't a 2D side scroller, and also doesn't lag and tracks your movements 1:1, so it must suck right?.......
geez, you gotta be almost psychic to play that game with all that lag.
Never said there wasn't lag. Just posted that I find that Fighters Uncaged to be more impressive. I will own both games, and hope I will find them both to be fun.
we'll see in the end what's works best.. The fight; light's out; does have some sort of underground feeling to it...I like that.
This game is only $15 and plays better than most of the games on Kinect.
This is what EyeToy (PS2) can do: EyeToy KINETIC: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Surprised that this article hasn't been trashed since it appears from Kotaku, selective are we?
I'm surprised no one made that comment earlier. Predictable are we?
so i guess there is no need to buy the move then,right?i'll just get an eyetoy.that saves me some money.
Isn't that nice of Sony to give you many different choices when it comes to gaming and how you game. I tell yah! Sony has got things covered.
If this game doesn't fail..........I would lol. It would literally be the first athletic game that doesn't suck. Sad to see that a cheap camera like the PS-eye can do things Kinect (Which is what, 180 dollars?) can't.
I personally want Fight: Lights out to work. Not only because it will showcase Move's accuracy but it will shut the haters up. No wait nothing ever does that. Okay it will keep them quirt for a minute before they find something else to gripe about
even though this is not a Sony developed game It makes me think that Sony and the devs are brutally funny releasing a game that does ANY kind of full body motion tracking using just the PS eye, and the game is going to be under 15.00 as well? talk about sticking it to the competition. If Sony was Smart they should advertise it on tv with Kevin butler around the time of the release of kinect.
and make a bunch more... sony should buy or lock in that company for a few more games..
I read you can use baseballbats if you want too ^^ It just make your hitbox larger...^^
Never heard of Fight: Lights out until this post. I checked it out and it does look pretty cool :-)
This game look aite.,. But Kinect is better than just the average ps eye lol.. and i think every1 here knows it.. deep down :) Why the devs didnt chose to be on 360 is beyond me xD Sony owned studio or is kinect that hard to work with hehe
This looks So stupid
Awesome title :D
Right, so the concept is there, is polished as heck, works... Why aren't Sony advertising the PS Eye as a competitor to Kinect? I understand the camera alone can't track in 3D but If it's as robust as this... does it really matter? At least it doesn't lag, and it isn't buggy. ;\
