Is Rare's motion sensitive version of ping pong any good? Gameplaybook puts it to the test.
"Part of the problem with KInect Sports' version of ping pong is that it doesn't look like the players are doing that much. They simply stand there waving their arms about, harding expressing any emotion or fluid movement into the game."
Ping Pong with Move is like the real deal. The tracking in that game is the most 1:1 tracking I have seen in any move title so far.
ping pong with move sucks ass out of donkeys.... and no im not bitter i have excelent cooridination.......honest... im just crap and ping pong i hope kinect can make some decent games the ideas intriguing its there execution of it i fear
Ping pong with move is very close to the real deal and is exactly why I hated it at first. Having played it more I love it now and can even play better on the real table at work in our break rooms. It's an amazing device that proves 1:1 ratio motion controls exist.
I read that and then watched the guy on the video talking about the exact opposite. Yeah, it doesn't look like you need to do much other than just wave your hand and there was absolutely no top spin control shown in the gameplay unlike what the announcer was saying. Definitely need to wait for the reviews of this, though a lot of this article's comments are what you would expect to see in a review as well.
Seems disappointing so far.
cuz motion gaming should have died with the wii. notice nintendo is hardly even utilizing it now...even they know it's cheap gimmick.
Well, in real ping pong, people do this thing called MOVING. A way of life. :D
Would like to know how it compares to the Move Table Tennis. Sports Champions version of Table Tennis works very well. 1:1, fast, no lag etc. Playing table tennis with your hands on Kinect? Who comes up with this weird ideas?
Haha theres a reason why a certain company dropped support for this...
Can you hit the ball a certain way or hit it in a certain spot on the table or do you just swing your arm and it automatically hits?
I think we all know the answer to that question. *sigh*
If you watched the video you'd hear them say that you can do certain shots. For example, flick your wrists and you'll add spin or something. I have a real table so I can care less. I urge others to get one too, table tennis is really fun, and good exercise in comparison to these motion games :)
Say that again after an hour of Sports Championship... (not necessarily Archery, though).
Table Tennis (not ping pong,I like how he pointed that out) is actually fun in real life.
So your character just stands there, and you just move their arms? Motion control really does enhance the immersion of gaming :S Just like having to wear glasses to view 3d ( which sacrifices visuals and performance...and comfort ), I mean it's not like there are more important things like gameplay length, or having native res gaming....or 60 frames, or maybe just a v-sync triple buffering standard. Console gaming= holding gaming back since 2006. ( prior to those generations there was INNOVATION ) EDIT: @Xi, I wouldn't know, I'm just trolling... P.S disagree is not from me.
I thought he mentioned in the video that if you move back to make a more powerful shot your character does the same, and that you can move around the table if you like... (towards the end of the vid) Can someone confirm this for me?
This game is going to be awesome! I mean, who plays ping pong with a paddle? That's so...2010.
You would think the characters would look better for a 360 game because u cant even see their emotions. For example with table tennis on the move, if I slammed it for a score, youll see the opponent emotion with disappointment in giving up a point. I think it looks alright but nothing special about it u wont find in any other ping pong game besides just using your hand as a paddle but is that worth paying $150 for? Not really. I'll wait and see if future installments improve.
is SPORT CHAMPIONSHIP!!the ping pong game alone with the MOVE is AMAZING!!when i move my wrist ever so slightly the hand on my guy moves 1:1.and when you play it feels REAL.
@zilla when i play it i feel confused... but then i just dont understand ping pong back to trying to beat dalas in champions cup...
2006 fanboy rants. "but, but sixaxis sucks because it lacks rumble which is vital to gaming because the tactical feedback adds to gameplay immersion." 2010 kinect gameplay lacks any type of feedback, you know the feature that was so important back in the days it's not so important now. You xbox aficionados were right rumble is important too bad Microsoft doesn't feel the same about it anymore I like Playing mag with my move and Unloading a clip
Doesn't Kinect have 'rumble'?
The only feedback Kinect will have is BAD PRESS,once the reviews start flooding in. LOL
quote "however, trying to add the little nuances, such as power shots and spins, takes a lot of practice. The device doesn't read all your hand's motions accurately enough" so i guess that means they are lying about this game having proper 1:1 control, sports champions table tennis is much better than this!!
if i want to play this type of games i do the real deal so this is not for me, not move, not kinect table tennis but as example of what kinect is able to do is ok......i mean two players without controls and you can move forward and backward and it will make the game faster or slower as the real game, i think is ok. And i think the lack problem is becoming less visible.
that sometimes the lag appears to be minimal and not a factor and sometimes it seems way off and a factor
You look so retarded with nothing in ya hand. Software is so limited without. BUTTONS...........
