Kotaku: Think it's only Westerners that look goofy playing Microsoft's Kinect? Nope, Japanese people look silly, too. Don't believe me?
Kinect was specially made to maximize embarrassment & increase shame.
look at the distance that is required to play kinect that devs have told us about,look at the distance of those in the screenshot......the biggest fundamental flaw is the space required for kinect to work,i dont see how this going to work in japan where apartments are really tiny,and electronics news (good/bad) travels superfast in japan
That space isn't required its been said time and again. Kinect configures itself to make the most out of the space you have. They clearly have a lot of space there so obviously its going to make use of it. Even when I played it I didn't need to stand that far back and the space I was in was pretty large.
In fact, you love defending Kinect, but you're not even going to buy it when it comes out. How do I know this? Because I am you! And you're me! But if I am you and you're me, then who am I?!!!
Well hey, 360 owners need to experience shame and embarrassment too. PS3 owners already got to experience it through the PS3's first 2 years.
You just admitted that the 360`s biggest add-on ever is shameful and embarrassing. Fail.
You're not making much sense. What about the people who0 buy it and don't have the required space to use it?
What about the people that buy a console and don't have a TV? It's just a requirement, if you don't have it don't buy it or return it. Why is that an issue?
"What about the people that buy a console and don't have a TV?" They usually used their LCD monitor.
you may look silly but the fun factor is what counts...can you ps3 fanboys get that through your thick heads. It;s the fun factor that counts.
Edit: How about fun without looking silly?
Isn't it just the fun factor altogether?
stuff that doesn't work right is hardly "fun"
I'm just stipulating that there really isn't a difference between having fun w/ or w/out looking stupid. Both have a relation of the person having fun in some way, shape, or form.
How about that many think the Kinect games is not fun, and that paid actors pretending to have fun, and looking stupid while they have their fixed in place grins-of-enjoyment-masks on is not very convincing. Compared to Move, Kinect looks like no fun at all. And it makes you look stupid to boot.
She's sexy... I think. :D http://cache-04.gawkerasset... Cute butt. :D
"Yoga sh*t" "yoga sh*t" "yoga sh*te" <sweep>
Oh dear kinect.....wishing you all the best.
Japanese invented "silly". Westerners can only dream being as goofy as them. Japanese took it to a whole new level decades ago, and continue to sit on the throne of weird, silly, goofy, and.. well, japanese. Can't describe it in other words.
the whole Kinect idea is just silly
when in use... Come on with these biast posts all ready!
This will be the bigest problem having to stand China to play in Japan!!!

Are they lacking shadows or is the person magically hovering above the ground? I am confused.. http://cache-04.gawkerasset... NVm: They are jumping. I forgot with Kinect you can jump up and down lol.
Is that an ice skating game? or one of the dance games?
Looking silly is part of the point of Kinect. You will be able to post pics and vids of your game sessions
But if you are playing video games to "look cool" then might I suggest you get out a bit more.
