Major Nelson: "With the launch of Kinect coming up next month, today we have announced that we will have 17 controller free games available as part of Kinect’s launch portfolio. Here is the complete list:"
Lots of games. Just a shame more than half of them are fitness or dance games. Still nothing I'd be excited to try out. Maybe some of the sports games but there's nothing I'd pay for to have a go at. Nothing unique at all. EA SPORTS Active 2 (EA SPORTS), $99.95 ERP (U.S.) (Includes Heart Rate Monitor) Re-he-heeeally now??
Yeah, it makes sense to wait for a larger variety of games to come out before you decide to purchase it. EDIT: Yikes...I didn't know these games were gunna be 50 bux each. I was thinking more like $40. Mm..hope it turns out to be worth it for the people who buy it Day 1. "Cool line up of hardcore games. Oh wait.." LOL, if you want hardcore games...there are plenty of em on the 360 and PS3. Why do you care about Kinect having hardcore games, when PLENTY of hardcore games are already available on consoles? I smell a hater..not a gamer. If you REALLY cared about hardcore games...ud be playing Halo: Reach or waiting in anticipation for LBP2, instead of here bitching about Kinect. @joydestroy- Both Kinect and Move are expensive. Kinect games are far too expensive IMO(50 bux is a joke). And Move is expensive due to the $30 navigation controller and because it has no standout launch game.
Cool line up of hardcore games. Oh wait..
a lot of gamers were hating on the Move because of how expensive it was after you buy everything versus the Kinect's price. factor in $50 dollar games versus $40 and you start making up that differential...
Why is it that the only one that looks interesting (Fighters Uncaged) doesn't show f all on the box. Edit: Nevermind...if you click on the title it shows some box art
And here we thought EA was our best friends... EA and Activision both suck.
exactly my thoughts. mostly sports games and that one by EA for $99.95 REALLY stood out because of that price tag holy crap.
...for ALL platforms, just like EA:SA1.
Maybe just maybe these games might be fun and only realized through actually playing them. 40 bucks would of been my guess as well.
need more info...
The Fight: Lights Out "Younger Retarded Brother" On Rails Did that help you at all?
How can a fighting game be on rails?
not really, i need to try both these games at the store. then, i'll decide... i haven't seen Lights Out in actual too so there, thanks anyway...
how can anyone on this site be excited about a list like this? super happy families and kids with big open rooms I could maybe understand, and maybe some really drunk times with some friends (only if they own one because I won't)... but anyone who visits this site regularly should be able to realize by now how shitty this is for us gamers.
Limited edition Kinektimals? $60? They've lost their minds.
...with a stuffed animal. If you seriously don't think it will sell, you don't understand marketing and demographics. Try a college education...it helps.
99% of the people reading this will be core gamers, this list is never going to appeal to us. This product is aimed at casual gamers, that much is obvious. This makes it all the more baffling that so many xbox owners need to come and over zealously defend Kinect like it's their child. Please xbox owners, you must understand why people are criticising it.
ive been a "core" gamer since the atari days and im getting kinect. Does this mean im sudenly a casual gamer, fuck no, does it mean i want to give kinect a try for myself rather than listen to other peoples opinion of it. Yes there have been issues with it but look at gt5s bugs, it doesnt mean they will be there come launch day. Yes i do understand why people have critisized it, because there are some issues but im confident they wont be there when i pick my kinect up on nov 10.
and nothing to play. Sorry, I couldn't resist.
Im a core gamers and I have all 3 home consoles and both handhelds but I am looking forward to Kinect I have pre ordered it with Kinectimals, Dance Central, Kinect Sports and Joy Ride. I know there not the normal type of games I get on my 360 but this is more for the family and to have a bit of fun with when mates are round for a few drinks. The thing I like about Kinect is my 360 is used as the main game console by me but it is also used for streaming media from my server and I also have sky on it in the front room so to add Kinect to this for the media side looks really good. I think Kinect has a lot of room to get alot more core games released for it. The company's just need to rethink how to make games work just Like Nintendo did with the wii and gave us some of the best games this gen. I know Kinect is not working for every one esp on this site but I do think it will change alot of peoples minds with in the next 12 months with the way MS are pushing it and also making Rare the head of game development for it as they could do for Kinect what Nintendo did for they wii if they go back to there roots of gaming. But only time will tell.
The gift that keeps on giving..
Does anyone commenting know or understand that Kinnect is launching for casuals, kids, and mom? Seriously guys stop with the "no Hardcore DOOOOM!!" stuff because its sad that you don't understand what Microsoft is doing nor how much money they are about to make - oh man are they about to clean up. Kinnect cost almost nothing to research or develop, its pretty much sold out everywhere, and every girl on the planet wants her own 'Skittles' now. For the purely Hardcore who has no idea what I'm talking about - just pick up the controller like I do and play games. Kinnect is not for us and probably never will be - kind of how Wii isn't for me and never will be.
Exactly, they're wanting to expand their audience, not fragment it.
Glad to see so many exclusives at launch. I ordered 4 of those titles. Sega and Ubisoft have a lot to offer it seems. I cant wait to get mine. I'm a "core gamer" but I see the possibilities and something different can be achieved with Kinect. Soon all the "Kinect will fail" articles will stop, I mean how can something launching by selling millions and being sold out everywhere be considered a failure? I know I wanted to pre order another Kinect for my little bro, but they aren't taking anymore pre orders due to demand. So it's gonna be good.
