All that to play games? Maybe the best setup is a huge empty room and the players play naked!

@rroded- No colors? Damnit! Kinect won't be able ta track me then lol

Good one IGN. The distance table for various items was the best since flammable materials can be closer to your TV than anything but a 360 controller :p

*wonders how many people won't get that this is a joke article*

Cenobia2858d ago

thought this was advanced tech?

Its the same rules for any webcam games setup. Kinect isn't advanced, which is why Nintendo & Sony passed on it. Even diehards admit this.

But yep, its gunna sell. Which is sad for consumers expecting a working product.

With Move it was just:
1) Put the PS Eye on top middle of TV
2) Switch on Move controller
3) Do the Move calibration (5 seconds)

And regardless if the room is dark or light - it works. Accurate, fast.
This right here is why Kinect will have many returns from consumers who thinks theirs is faulty.

FragMnTagM2858d ago

It is nowhere near that finnicky. How then, can it work in a room full of people in several videos we have seen?

There are fanboys, and then there are just straight dum dums.

Really the only thing you have to do is plug it in, calibrate it and maybe move a few pieces of furniture. Not too hard. I have to move furniture out of the way for the Wii depending on what is being played.

edgeofblade2858d ago

Why do you assume light or dark makes a difference? It's an infrared depth sensor with it's own emitter...

Now, the reasons you give for Move are the reasons it won't sell very well with the casual set. I keep saying, go watch someone try it at Best Buy. No really... don't play the "I don't work here but I can help you" card, but just watch them try it.
