Microsoft put out montage trailers of both Joyride and Kinect Sports this morning, showing one woman soundly beating both a small boy and young girl. She really takes them to school.
Mom pwned those noobs.
that the daughter isn't his. The difference is so huge. LOL.
funniest comment ever ! pure genius !
"TotalPS3Fanboy + 21h ago He's so occupied pretending to have fun that he didn't realize that the daughter isn't his. The difference is so huge. LOL." rofl
Will be interesting to see more of the table tennis game.
I on't know why you need to be 12 or up to play it though. PEGI sucks, BBFC is better
more actors? kinect is a joke.
Yeah, nice to see Microsoft really has their thumb on the pulse of what gamers want.
if u see the Kinect sport video u will notice 1:16 that the mom shoot by her right leg but the avatar shoot by the left leg :))
But glad that this is free...
if you're referring to JoyRide then note, it's no longer free...
yea..that will make me rethink buying Kin... what the heck is MS thinking about these minigames
"what the heck is MS thinking about these minigames" Answer: People who would fall for gimmicks and marketing.
I hope they do fall for it. They will realize right quick that they made a mistake. Are these games FULL RETAIL PRICE? I mean did Joy Ride go from FREE to $60?
To me they just look like fun. Im looking forward to Kinect as I find I havent time to play full games all the way through. Im looking for some fun 10 minute sessions on these type of party games. My Girlfriend is really looking forward to joining in too as at the moment females dont seem to have the videogame gene. Kinect they love the look of it and all want one. I guess its just not aimed at the Hardcore gamers..
wait till she knows all about "lag"
it will be a fun party/family thing. Thats the reason im getting it. People can bash it all they want but Kinect is gonna be something fun. Yea, there arent many games out that look all that great yet. But Kinect adventures, sports, and dance central will at least bring some entertainment to a family.
For some reason.. I want to do the same with that stupid family Gerald Butler did to that criminal in Law Abiding Citizen. Cut them in so many lovely pieces.. So it seems the soccer game doesnt allow movement :| Because that also happens in RL of course..
With Kinect, you are the controller. Not the player. XD
My opinion on Kinect is try for yourself before judging it. However, these adverts really do make me cringe with their overblown cheesiness.
The only talent Microsoft has left.
As a big fan of Football (English), that football game looked shit!!! And with videos showing kinect's poor body tracking, i bet that game is just kick your feet and the ball goes to the next person, as there is no-way kinect could measures how hard you are kicking the ball and the angle you are doing it in.
Yes you are so right. Its not out till November and you have haters on N4G making out it cant track nothing. They seem to think. 1. The camera is a dummy camera and dont pick up nothing. 2. The lag is just over 5 seconds. 3. The games are all rubbish even tho they have not played them. 4. The Move is amazing, despite them hating on Nintendo for the last 3 years. 5. Kinect is an Eyetoy rip off, even tho the eyetoy seemed to work fine and was a lot of fun for a lot of people. 6. Kinect does not work properly when you hold a piece of paper in front of it or you hold a Sofa or fridge while playing, theres videos to prove it.
easily.... u cant be serious??? lol no wonder u never found out u were really an alien
So do you really think they are still tweaking the hardware? From the time they finalize the design until 12:00 AM Nov 4th: They have to manufacture probably around a million of them. They need to be boxed, warehoused, put onto cargo ships, planes & trucks. Distributed to every Wal-mart, Target, K-mart, Gamestop, Toys-r-us, etc.. in the country. What you are seeing IS THE FINAL HARDWARE. Software updates can be downloaded and may improve things, but the basic problems you are seeing are REAL. E3 09, MS Promised the world. E3 10, MS gave us a circus, prerecorded demos and skittles. Stop defending them.
Have you played it? I havent eithier, My opinion on Kinect is try for yourself before judging it. Im just not negative about it like everyone on here seems to be. Can I just add that I have 2 close friends who have played Kinect and they think it will do great. They cant believe this site. They have said theres hardly any lag at all and they played 7 games. They are gamers by the way 1 owns Wii and 360 the other has 2 PS3s.
So I supposed you ran out and bought Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing, since you can't judge from other people's reviews and videos online. You just couldn't judge it without playing it yourself? http://www.metacritic.com/g...
show me some kinect reviews. And i guess you arent getting any move games as well?
There are no official reviews yet. There are TONS of videos of it in action, previews, videos, E3 clips, etc... So I can't form an opinion based on those? I'm not buying any of the crap shovelware for Move. I will play RE5 and other REAL games when I buy Move. I'm not biased against Xbox at all. In fact my PS3 has not been on lately because I just finished RDR (on xbox) and I'm playing ME2 and on my Xbox right now. But it's clear that Kinect is a turd.
no one accused you of being biased. I was just asking whether you would get the move considering how reviews have been quite bad for them. But i wouldnt blame someone for wanting to get it to just have a different experience with gaming.
I agree wit number 4. If Microsoft made the Move and Sony made Kinect people Sony fanboys would hate Move and jack off to Kinect
"N4G making out it cant track nothing" Guess what. It cant track anything 1. The camera has shown that it doesn't pick up $hit 2. The lag (though not 5 seconds) it might as well be, because the lag is absurd, and wont work for gaming. 3. Every Kinect game is rubbish (that is coming from thousands of people that have played them, and millions of people that have working vision. 4. People hate on the Wii because it lacks hardcore games (Move doesn't have that problem) 5. Kinect is an Eye Toy rip off (can you show a game that will prove otherwise) 6. Kinect is broken. It is a fact. Microsoft is still going to sell it to as many people that are dumb enough to be fooled by their Bull$hit marketing. Why defend Kinect anymore, it has only shown us that time after time, it is nothing more than a big fat F.U. to all 360 gamers everywhere. There is no game that can save Kinect, if the camera doesn't work. And guess what. The Camera Doesn't Work.
"1. The camera is a dummy camera and dont pick up nothing." Judging from the previews.. no it doesn't. For example the boxing story posted yesterday. "2. The lag is just over 5 seconds." Not 5.. but their is some second lag, maybe around 2. I went to Gamescom this year and tried it out so yes I HAVE played it. "3. The games are all rubbish even tho they have not played them." Once again I played some. And for some games you can already SEE its rubbish and the fun will die away after 15 mins. "4. The Move is amazing, despite them hating on Nintendo for the last 3 years." No it's not, but it does seem to work well. Combine the use of buttons and you allow it to be used in hardcore games. "5. Kinect is an Eyetoy rip off, even tho the eyetoy seemed to work fine and was a lot of fun for a lot of people." Mind I remind you the Eyetoy is tech from 2002? Isn't the point to move FORWARDS instead of hanging behind? "6. Kinect does not work properly when you hold a piece of paper in front of it or you hold a Sofa or fridge while playing, theres videos to prove it." Well duh but the same can be said for PS Move lol. I hope you realise people were making a joke.
...and pointing all those things out. My opinion on Kinect is try for yourself before judging it. Im just not negative about it like everyone on here seems to be. Its funny how my friends seem to think its great, ones got a phd by the way and their both in their 30s. They know about tech they aint clueless. Do you really think that Microsoft would bring out something that doesnt work whatsoever and get all the negative press and most of all lose a ton of customers forever. My common sense tells me that Kinect will work fine and people who are not into videogames will buy it in their droves and enjoy the games. Theres Konami theres UBI Soft theres Sega, do you think they would be making games for something that doesnt work at all. They have reputations to keep. If it worked as bad as you say they would stick to contoller games. I have seen plenty of hands on Videos, Bowling, Javeling, Skiing etc they all seem to work fine as good as the Wii. Last months Edge Mag also said the games worked great with hardly any noticable lag. Yes, from a well respected Mag. Lets just wait till it comes out and the reviews and my own hands on tests will decide wether its worth buying or not.
"Its funny how my friends seem to think its great, ones got a phd by the way and their both in their 30s." LOL.. you need a phd to understand Kinect and to appreciate it? I don't see how that is linked. "Do you really think that Microsoft would bring out something that doesnt work whatsoever and get all the negative press and most of all lose a ton of customers forever." RROD says hi. You can't ignore the main 360 problem. "Last months Edge Mag also said the games worked great with hardly any noticable lag." Edge...the same mag who gave Halo 3 a 10 and Mass Effect 2 a 7. No offense but if you had any credibility left.. you lost it.
dude, thats the point! no one has played it!!! and if the product worked so good then why would MS only do scripted preformances? its the equalivant of a singer lip syncing their own songs in a concert. why does it happen? cuz it doesnt work!! i mean would u show videos of people pretending they play COD? no so why this?
I was also looking forward to Kinect when I first heard about it, but I don't think we need to test it out for ourselves, to really get a sense of fun factor that Kinect offers. It's fun factor is really low for me, and I like mini/casual games!
the game controls you!!!! there is a lil bit of lag between the signal the camera sends to your brain and your body actually preforming these moves but cant u see? MS has made a mind control device! soon everyone who tries this will pay 500$ a month for live and will be the controller for the kinect to play its games!
It would be cool if I could ply Joy Ride without Kinect. The game looks pretty good
LOL that's true, I never thought about the game without Kinect. Does look like a fun kart game, but the downsides to me were can't control acceleration/brake, hold out your arms, can't sit while playing, and to do stunts you got to flail your body around. Hmm now I'm going to look at some Kinect games and be like man this would be a lot more fun with a controller(Forza, Star Wars, Child of Eden)
I can't even think right now. Seriously?!?!?!?!?
You guys know that I am by no means a Kinect supporter, but some of ya'll are just really stupid. I see a lot of people talking about the Football game. I don't know any other motion systems that have even tried soccer, and there is only so much you can do with it from that perspective.
I played it in an arcade last year. The difference is... ...that arcade game had an actual soccer ball! :D
Not if sony had kinect as sh1tty like this... I wouldnt buy PS Move if it was crap too....
I'd rather play Kinect Sports and JoyRide than sports champions and that game where you ride downhill in a office chair lmao
I'm getting Move but I agree with you about the office chair game (Kung Fu Rider). It got a 5 out of 10 in Official PlayStation Magazine, and doesn't look fun at all.
Both Move and Kinect will have some bad games release for it just like the ps3 and 360 have some bad game but Im defo looking forward to seeing what both Kinect and Move can do.
This actually LOOKS quite fun, but will it be as responsive as it is in the trailers?
about lag. KUDO confirmed lag for the kinect games. heres the link. http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... gotta copy and paste
Im interested in Kinect as I do think it has alot more to offer as MS are saying but the one game I was not interested in was Joy ride but there has been a few videos showing what it has to offer and I think this game is starting to look like it could be a good game something on the line of Mario Kart but different enough to not fall into the trap sega all star racers and mod nation fell under. Kinect sports also looks like fun and I think every one who enjoyed wii sports will feel the same way towards Kinect sports. I know Kinect has been getting alot of stick but in the last two weeks there has started to be a reaction from MS on the issues ect that people have been pointing out and I am looking forward to seeing what can be achieved with the product.
