At its Tokyo Game Show press conference, Microsoft announced that Parappa the Rapper creator Masaya Matsuura would be making a game for its motion-sensing Kinect peripheral.
I still can't understand how these games will work. My guess is that it's either a combination of Kinect and the 360 pad (which defeats the point of kinect) or it's on-rails.
Don't forget the cheese.
How exactly is using a game pad in conjunction with Kinect defeating the purpose of it? Just because MS is using a marketing sloagin to capture the interest of the casual market does not mean that they are somehow restricted to how they can use the hardware. "Your not allowed to have buttons because your marketing says sooooo." In the end hybrid will be the much better solution anyway...at least for hardcore.
@ArmrdChaos, it'll be better for the hardcore, but that defeats the whole entire purpose of Kinect since it's supposed to offer a "Hands-Free" experience.
Armrd I am totally with you. I am excited at the possibilities of the hybrid Kinect/Controller for core games and with %99 of the games staying totally true to controller free games I can't believe there isn't some room for experimentation.
will decide when this game comes out I'm not falling for a bait and switch.
cute graphics = NOT SCARY eh kids game?
Parappa the Rapper had cute graphics and was an awesome game for it's time, still is a great game to date. Just because it doesnt scream hardcore gamer aesthetically, doesnt mean it wont be a good game.
i loved that game! just, idk cute isnt scary
its on rails like all the other kinect games /face palm
Is this different to 'Rise of the Nightmare'? It's like everyone thought 'A horror game will be rare for kinect, lets make that!' and now everyone realises they all had the same idea.
Why all the hate from kinect all the ps3 fans are here. wheres all the 360 fans ohh yeah there playing REACH. Don't you guys have games ohh yeah next year thats right
your English and grammar is terrible.shouldn't you be playing halo reach that kiddy game?
Why're you mad? We have GT5, Move (can't really count that I guess), and LBP2 for some, that could hold out for forever, personally I'm not getting these, I'll be getting some games I missed out on earlier this year and b4 I got a ps3, so whether or not more than 2 exclusives are coming out, my ps3 is still going to be heavily used. And again, all you guys have is Reach and then Gears, that's it, after that you guys don't have any other big exclusives dude. So you really need to calm down before you start attacking ps3 fanboys.
Man.. you PS3 fans are a trip. First you rip Kinect cause it only has casual games. Of course when they show you otherwise you still bitch. I really do think PS3 fans are a bunch of women.
I bet most of the Ps3 fanboys were reading the live blog. I have a ps3 and have said many times how much I love it. However right now I'm playing with the 360 because of whats out for it
@testerg I'm actually playing reach and have been all day. I got of for a couple hours was starting to get a headache
where just taking a break and getting some fresh air, ready to watch sonys press conference "the real games are shown there cough cough.."
What's scary is that I'm still trying to figure out if that's a man or a woman in that photo.
your true home.
They lost me at "Cute Graphics."
