The absolutely 100% true guide to discovering everything you'll need to do to set up your Kinect on launch day.
Haha! All that to play games? Maybe the best setup is a huge empty room and the players play naked!
you need to b diskonected from the real world no kids no pets no reflective surfaces no remots phones radios etc no cloth no funiture light fixtures or colors... jus u naked in a big white room wit milo i mean kinectables...
@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*
Can't play naked cause then it'll think I've got 3 legs... *Ba dum psh*
was if they included the last 2 pages...7 & 8. . Note - reverse sarcastic sarcasm http://www.flickr.com/photo... http://www.flickr.com/photo...
i got like 5 dogs and 3 kids guess kinnect is a nononon
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.
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.
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.
The article is a joke. I love the people in here that are so quick to try to point out flaws just because it's xbox related without reading. makes you look pretty dumb
Which they go too far with the items, but its still from factual problems with Kinect.
Remove your windows? How the hell is that factual? None of that crap has to be done. You don't have to remove anyone from the room, or pets. Shiny stuff doesn't make sense either as people on showfloors with lanyards, necklaces, bracelets, rings, etc. were all playing it with no problem. This is purely satire and is not based in reality whatsoever. In the end though, it won't matter as your opinions will not affect the sales of Kinect. So happy trolling brotha.
"its a joke, based on the manual of kinect" So you actually think the kinect manual has stuff like these directions found in this funny IGN satiric news piece: "face all remote controls away from the Kinect sensor" "remove all pocket change(if you're wearing pants)" "Please cover up and remove any glass-framed posters, shiny lamps, mirrors, aluminum foil, and windows" "Please take a break to take every once in awhile to take care of children and pets. You can't plug them in to start them up again." "Please do not wear any reflective material. This includes watches, glasses, sunglasses, buttons and silver track jackets.= lol, I think they are referencing Kudo's usual attire...oh wait nah its from the kinect manual. -Wow, what a blind fanboy, after reading the headline you were so quick to jump on what you thought was negative kinect news you actually ended up looking like a total azz, ahahaha so funny. Just start a dupe account 'cause even the sdf is laughing at you right now. lmfao, I bet IGN knew exactly what they were doing. JOY
Kinect as a gaming peripheral, I dunno, maybe. But Kinect + Clown Suit + Children's Birthday Party = $$$.
lol @ page 5 and 6
i know right.....

Who will MS try buying off next. How about jailbirds, that wear they bright orange jumpsuits. MAYBE Kinect will work with them. LOL
Funny article. I hope they do a video of Kinect "in action", like they did for Move.
EDIT: Nevermind, I didn't realise it was a lol article. My bad
lol this is so funny
3 leg joke was funny
