360 Magazine: Rare’s Nick Burton talks to us about the developer’s role in the retro XBLA community, and throws a few nuggets on Kinect into the bargain…
If anything, Kinect makes things more complicated with lots of stupid hand waving. What's simpler than a d-pad and A button really?
A D-pad that works and an X button?
oh uncle paul!
the Xbox360 is turning into a Wii
And my kids were playing with EyeToy when they were younger than 5. Oh - with the Dulashock controller also. So does that make it better.
i remember gettng eyetoy for my daughter when she was 2 and even she could use it lol, now she is nearly 9, time flies and she loves move>>wii
My kid's three and he can use move like it's second nature, he plays the eyepet and can choose everything he wants to do. He still need's help with wii sports because the cursor is not as easy to use. but I bet he'd have trouble with kinect just due to a lack of coordination at that age. Could it even detect someone that small?
I'd be kinda concerned if a 6yr old kid couldn't move around.
Wow such hate! If you don't like it, don't buy it! And don't call me a fanboy, I'm not buying Kinect, but I am buying Move. I just don't see why everyone who doesn't even own a 360 has to comment on Kinect being lame.
The HATE for this is simply AMAZING. Well not really. The people hating this are the Sony fanboys fretting that Kinect even with its casual games and lag here and there will outsell MOVE. That's the reason why they are hating on this and begging people not to buy it. FYI. Kinect is not ment for core gamers. Its meant for the Wii crowd. As such its going to sell huge. If people on N4G.COM were not such fanboys they would care less about sales and their purchases and the games they have to play. But since they are fanboys and sales mean everything, the crying is going to get extremely intense once Kinect is released because its going to sell a lot. And that folks will have N4G.COM buzzing with hate never before seen....except..... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Get out. The 360 fanboys are the sales whores. Not the Sony crowd. @Below: Sales were brought up for Move because Xbots wrote off 2 mil Move units sold in one month as a failure, when just recently, MS stated that they were expecting 3mil Kinect units sold by Christmas. It has to start somewhere.
Really? Look at all the Kinect articles posted in the last few days and what you said proves otherwise. BOTH MS fanboys and Sony fanboys are SALES whores when it suits them. When NPD results come out and Sony was on top...all that mattered was sales to them. When NDP numbers came out and MS was on top, MS fanboys would scream how that mattered. They are BOTH sale whores. Just look at when first threads posted how MOVE sold over 1.5 million units? Sales were the talk for Sony fanboys. MS and Sony fanboys are just as bad. It all depends what side is so called "winning"
Sales are ALWAYS brought up by fanboys. MS or Sony. When it was reported MOVE sold over 1.5 million units, Sony and MS fanboys made a big deal about it. Both of them. And now you will see it again with Kinect from both sides. MS fanboys will raise the trumpet and say how Kinect is outselling MOVE and SOny fanboys will say sales don't matter...yet they were praising the 1.5 million plus units sold of MOVE. MS fanboys are no different. Just look at when Halo Reach sales were released. They all jizzed their pants about it crying like babies how it ousold KZ2 and God3 together. Sales matter to them right there. MS and Sony fanboys are like Sarah Palin. Ripe with hypocrisy... ALL fanboys rant abut sales when it suits them.
That video is awesome!!!
they're trying to download information from a persons brain to build a super being, the signs are all on the wall now.
You can also sit a ps3 fanboy in front of a Kinect article and they know what to do, troll it.
You can put Move sales figures in front of an xbot and they'll know what to do with it. Ignore it. You can ALSO put 12 exclusive games from the competition in front of them, and they'll know what to do with that too.....Ignore it. You can even put the Wii's millions of sales on a chart comparing it to the 360 and PS3 and they'll know what to do with it. Ignore the Wii completely, and claim their system is winning due to sales.
ps3 fanboys are between 16 and 25 years old.. while xbox fanboys are between 8 and 16.. which are u?
ps3 fanboys are into incest.. while xbox fanboys aren't.. which are u?
You can sit a 6-yr old in front of a plate of asparagus and they'll know what to do with it..... Doesn't mean they'll want to though. Edit: How did I get a disagree? That was pure fact.
Haha... Comment of the day. That was awesome.
Why is it everyone believes that anyone who disses Kinect is a PS3 owner? You think it is only us that hates this crap? I have several friends who are damn pissed that Microsoft is spending all this money on Kinect. Not every 360 owner is happy about this shovelware line up like some of you seem to be. This affects them too whether they buy it or not.
Yea I think thats the problem.
they walk away frustrated?
na we do.
All this Kinect Hate is really to put it simply ... lame
for constantly defending it.
Ironic, you can sit a six year old in front of it and they will know what to do, and yet you sit a twenty-six year old hardcore gamer in front of it and they won't. I love my 360, it has had some fantastic games. But the Kinect is complete garbage. 500 million dollars on advertising to invest in casual gamers and yet they refuse to spend a dime on first party studios to invest in me, the hardcore gamer. - and don't tell me that "there are so many posibilities in using both a controller and kinect simultaneously - thats where they will capture the hardcore." - if they can't get the tech to work right for shovelware, what makes you think they will be able to implement a precise function into a hardcore game that requires precision.
x360 fans are a bunch of crybabies. They complain about PS3 fanboys more than commenting on the articles. I was here since early 2007 and i never complained about N4G being overrun by x360 fans then. Advice to you guys. Grow some balls.
It's not true.If you could sit a 6 year old in front of it and they'd know what to do,why when I saw Kinect demoed(and in every video)does MS have someone explaining how to play/cheerleading at every Kinect?I was cringing at the demo of table tennis(Eurogamer show) I saw and how the boys playing looked bored while the man in Rare Tshirt jumped around,clapped and cheered like a camp,desperate salesman.
Great Rare, but I am not Six... whats in it for me ?
That was a good read and he has some good pints. The one thing Kinect dose over the Wii and Move is make games simple for any one to pay from young kids to old people. My Grandad (who is 82)is pants with technology he can only just use his freeview box at home. I remember he being at mine and we were trying to show him how to use the Wii to play bowling one xmas and he could not grasp the button holding and letting go when he was trying to do it where with games like Kinect sport there is no buttons to press or think about you you do what you would do in really life so in this way Kinect is more accessible than the wii and Move for everybody. The one thing I want to see from Kinect is how they are going to do complex games like halo or fable. I am getting Kinect on Nov 10 and look forward to playing on the games with the Kids which do dont do very often with the 360.
Off topic. I don't really understand you dude. You preach about PC is the best etc, and always seen to roll with the 360 crowd. At the end of the day it's abit of fun for most of us. But there are times when people think they have shares, work for the company. dammmmmmmmm Seriously what have the 360 crowd done, shout from the rooftops we are infront sales wise(when the ps3 wasn't out) We have the better hardware(then rrod) We have halo. Yet you 360 people still invested in a system that was broken more that any other piece of hardware. You proved to M$ that you will buy anything for any amount of money. Well You are welcome to it. And that was before i even invested in a PS3. I was on the fence, because before that time, i'd only owned a PSX, and older consoles. I never had a PS2, i moved from psx straight to PC as did alot of adults. But i fancied picking up either a 360 when it was out, went and had alook at the games and went to forums to check what the 360 was like, and all i found was anger, anger that the PS3 was coming soon. What did it matter if the PS3 was better, when 360 owners had the system they wanted. Then gears came and they shouted from mount sinai,(thou shall not play the PS3) I waited and checked out the PS3 on launch and looked at them side by side. In the End i choose the PS3, because the games that were on the PS1 that i remembered i knew would return and new i.p's would be born from SONY'S many studios. On topic. You have seen the lag, you have seen the skittles. But you want more. Because it's M$, not because it works. Reminds me of diesel. The worst cars you can buy, your lungs cannot stop it, damages your insides and childrens even worse, causes numerous medical issues and yet people still buy them. Constantly surprises me how many f-tards there are in this world. RANT OVER.
I'm glad i have no kids at this present time, because we are heading to global tyranny, not a future i'd like to see, but so many of us are ignorant to the social game we're playing.. or perhaps you would like your kids to be RFID implanted, but dont worry they wont mind aslong as they have their kinect
well of course a six year old knows what to do, their first toys are nearly always rattles
