Kotaku: In 2005, Nintendo published Nintendo DS game "Brain Age" in Japan, a title that claimed it could train players' brains. In 2010, Microsoft's Kinect is getting its own brain game.
thats the new game they're showing at tgs? wtf man. r.i.p kinect
Move will be gettings its on own counterpart :P watch the same people ditching this praise it. 8800gtx
and not a brainwashing game?
You're probably right, but we all knew that with the Move will come shovelware. Basically every game the Wii has can be done on the Move now. And it seems Move games will be around $40 or less which makes the platform attractive for developers. It's ok and I don't mind because I know the Move will still have games for the core PS3 players, but people just have to get used to the idea that the shovelware will come sooner or later.
PS3 already has brain trainer on psn. it'll just get a patch. still, it's a shit 'game'.
@ 8800gtx i beg you buy it and hopefully it raises ur IQ
Kinect getting a brain training game? Won't that work against sales?
I hoped next game would prove all my pessimism wrong. it didn't. inb4"tehpreorders" Kinect = DOA (dead on arrival) + its been proven - BRAIN TRAINING GAMES DON'T DO SH!T xD want to train your brain? Read a book for one.
makes me wanna jump around and wave my arms like a fool evertime I look at it which was kinects goal. Thanks microsoft!
anyone who purchase kinect needs brain training. matter of fact if you support kinect or motion controls, you need brain training.
If it works, you'll be smart enough to return Kinect. Just kidding.
"brain training with kinect" -oxymoron
Omega will surely love this. ;P
he needs it so bad, i bet hell bore the machine off with his scores XD
Won't work with Omega cause he needs a brain first before he can train it.
LOL at all those great companies making games for Kinect, first Ubisoft and their fitness game, Harmonix with Dance central, now Namco Bandai and their brain training, .... I can't wait to see the next stone breaker from Kojima Production. Edit : Oops I almost forgot Sega and Sonic Free Riders
a Brain Training game? Wow, Kinect finally has a hardcore game. Praise the Lord. Day One for me :) ! / sarcasm
Wow this looks great!! I can't wait for Kinect to get a Cooking Mama game! NOT!
Your so right... Brain Training aint for the Fanboys on here despite them needing it more than most people..
i hope it doesn't work, there will be a lot of people disappointed in what they just bought if it does be smart to start with and buy a MOVE :)
and anyone willing to shell out $150 to MS for kenect could probably benefit from such a product. heh heh heh j/k kinda
...sell like hotcakes in Japan?
More like worldwide. Nintendo's Brain Training is closing in on 20 million sales.
What will happen when their brains have been trained and they realise Kinect was a terrible purchase?
to see how dum 360 fans are
Dum huh? hahaha
hahahahaha learn to spell before you call someone else "DUMB". hahahaha
Lol.....that was interesting. Now that's another case of self ownage.
People agree with him. Sad.
it seems that i have failed miserably this time
oh the irony.
Xbox owners don't have brains.
wut u mein we don't hav brains??!!!???!!111one I actually sort of resent that though.
Don't fall for it. It's a brain control game.
Any opportunity to cash in on nintendo's innovation......
So M$ is going to unveil this at the TGS, a place where the 360 is selling like crap... This sound like their up to something.....
Wow I'm a hardcore gamer and I like kinect .... ah screw this brainwash program.
Must destroy PS3. Must pay 120$ for 1 month.
This must be that killer app to reel in the core gamers!
wtf i can play brain training game on my dsi seriously ms really needs to wake up and stop this nonsense and get some hardcore games for kinect or just hardcore games am happy with halo reach but come on i need more games
Talking about brain washing, what about Sony brain washing you guys into wanting something that the wii has been doing for the past 4 years. Yes, I'm sure it will work better, and have Hd, but its still the same concept. Its so obvious that they are coping wii, since it looks just like the wii mote with a ball on the end. Its sad that sony and all its fanboys have to keep defending it, saying its not a wii knock off, its just a better version of eye toy. I can imagine the customers faces when they walk into the store and see the Wii with wii sports and wii sports resort for $200. Then seeing ps3 with move for $400, and asking what the difference is, the employee will say one had hd.
A game system without HD these days is limited to being just a kids toy. When people want to buy a new gadget, nobody gives a rats ass what is the orignal. They want the latest, better model. Unless they are cheap.
Maybe they're real gamers, who play games for fun, regardless of graphics. Or maybe they have a love and respect for Nintendo since they revived the video game industry after the crash of '83. I still play games from decades ago. While consoles eventually die, great games live on. That's why I laugh at the people who get caught up in these console wars. You're only hurting yourself by devoting yourself to one console.
Training brains...to waste money on this kind of crap.
Trouble is, for cooking mama to work with kinect, you have to take the 360 into the kitchen so kinect can try and track your movements, but heat will cause explosions inside the 360. Microsoft should dump kinect and do a do over.
I just checked out the full trailer for this Brain Training game and from the looks of it, the $35 Playstation Eye can do all of this. So Microsoft better have a jp exclusive or something for this game because it will look kind of stupid with one needing a $150 camera and the other only needs a $35 camera to do the same thing.
