The new no-controller control system, Kinect for Xbox 360, hits stores next week. In AP’s weekly Video Game Video, Ubisoft offers a preview of its motion-sensing Kinect games. (Oct. 29)
some games are lagging
some trolls are trolling
Facts are Facts.
"All games are lagging and ps move has only 3 milliseconds of lag so therefore its better than kinects ps eye ripoff" Fixed.
known as MOVE, is pretty much irrelevant, especially since it is the same identical device as the Wii. Everyone who wants a Wii has one already, they are not going to buy a MOVE to go with it, who needs two Wiis. Kinect is new exciting, and will be a huge success. Even I am starting think it looks kinda neat, however; if I get it, it will be for my wife and kid.
The thing is, The wii mote doenst really work as a controller. Its been proven to be far too laggy for serious gaming while playstation move is lag free (its lag is so miniscule, your brain wont be able to notice). So therefore the move is the first motion controller that actually works they way its supposed to and should not be called a wii ripoff.
It feels very floaty. Its not comfotable or as precise as you guys let on. How do I know? I played with it myself at Best buy. It is not terrible, but I don't see why it is leeps bounds better than the Wii. The game that I played gave me the same feel as when I play with the wii. I see no reason at this point for anyone Hardcore or otherwise to see the Move as a must have. Oh sorry, that was wrong. They are some of us that have to buy what ever is release for the PS3 or 360. But the game play experience I had with the Move was far from being a fun one.
Don't speak for everybody, I own a Wii and Move. Hope that doesn't hurt your feelings.
Kinect is an improved version of ps eye: added 3D motion sensing Move is an improve version of the wii: added accuracy So what is w/ all the hate?
What game isn't? Everything I am looking at looks either precanned or it's not moving the same as the people playing it. Just watch a person playing when they move their arm in an arch motion with child of eden. The cursor on screen isn't moving in an arch but only from side to side in a straight line. I am still so frustrated with MS for going this route. This is not what the industry needs. The industry needs developers like Ubisoft, EA, Activision, etc and so on to come up with original ideas and top milking the same franchises year after year with little to know effort on their part. The only reason why devs like ubi are on board with Kinect is because of money vested vs money to gain. Motion games are a cash cow and that is what the industry doesn't need yet what they have been getting away with most of this generation. Sorry but all the money being spent on this garbage FOR SOCCER MOMS and LITTLE KIDS (not the 360's audience) is money that could've have been spent on games for us or R&D for a new console!
"Sometimes you spend 15 minutes failing to throw a virtual pizza at your virtual lion because your physical technology can't detect you" Kinect has a long way to go before I think it'll truly catch on. A year from now when we start seeing some better software for it, I could see myself purchasing it & a 360, I just hope those games come soon because I don't know how much longer Microsoft plans on keeping the 360 going.
Child Of Eden looks pretty damn cool with Kinect, and Fighters Unchaged looks pretty cool as well. Other than that, the rest of Kinect is a bore feast.
previews of child of eden with kienct say otherwise
Is that a Tranny???? because looks and moves like a dude!!!!
Ubisoft has really been a big supporter of Kinect and I'm sure that the next wave of games from Ubisoft will be great. They seem to have a really good grasp of the tech.
You're right. Ubisoft are a big supporter of Kinect. Why though? Because it will make them a lot of money. Will Kinect ever make any game better? No. Get over it. We know you want Kinect to be successful and that you love MS and your Xbox, but are you really thinking about what's best for the industry & gamers, or just your own selfish fanboy needs?
However, I got only one. So Il be honest. Kinect looks like fun. Go ahead thumb me down sony faboys you cant bring me lower.
Oh you poor poor victim. G4 has a + and - system too. You might like it better there. I promise that the only bully you'll run into is misinformation and fanboy comments that rival the worst of the worst. Try not to let the commenters push you around now, but I think you would fit right in. Remember, if someone says something bad about 360, (taboo on G4) just ask the writers for help. They got your back.
Sony fanboys love to troll in a Kinect article cuz no one is talkin about or interested in MOVE
No I think this is why http://www.youtube.com/watc... That guy sure is flexible o wait.
Lol I love how people on this site think they can disagree with facts. Not only is there obvious lag in that video, there is also a weird glitch that make the avatar do a 180 twist with its back. I think im going to have to write a blog about that I think of this disgree system since no one else will. Also the sky is blue duing the day. Now my post cant be disagreed with.
Why is it that if you own a ps3 on this site then your always some sort of troll? Every troll on this site is un-needed including you. In fact your just as bad as them.
Nuff said. Edit: This reply was supposed to go under the Youtube video Dsnyder posted.
I wish these whiners would put up or shut up. According to them everyone that isn't happy about Kinect is a troll, fanboy or don't own a 360. The bottom line is this device is not for the 360 gamer. The 360 is geared towards hardcore and this device is primarily for casual (little kids and soccer moms). MS themselves have come out and said it. Just read the article posted here yesterday with Greenburg regarding reviews and expectations from user feedback. dtain21 are you getting Kinect? Are any of you guys constantly complaining and calling everyone a troll that isn't impressed with Kinect, getting one November 4th? If not then why do you care? If you are I would love to see the photo's proving you own one because to be honest I doubt most that praise or defend this device, not only are not going to purchase one, but really don't have any interest in it. You are only defending it because you take these silly console wars too far. I personally know a ton of gamers, most of them adult gamers, and not one of them has any interest in Kinect after E3 2010. Another thing before someone says otherwise. A few of my friends played it at E3 2010. This is a device for casuals and not the 360's core audience. Again like I said, MS admitted that, FINALLY. Oh and not only am I a 360 gamer but I am a 360 gaming freak! I own 5 360's and have 3 gaming setups in one gaming room. 1 for racing, 1 for fighting and 1 for everything else. I just wish the money that was wasted on this crap (Kinect) was put to better use, games for 360 GAMERS!
its because Wii, oops I mean Move is an after thought. NO ONE is talking about Wii 1.5. Even before it launched all the buzz was about Kinect and not Move, will kinect fail, will it succeed, but no one was talking about Move, and I think the sales will reflect this reality. Mediocre effort from Sony will produce mediocre results.
i gotta ask i own all 3 systems, and i've not bought one shovelware game for either of systems. i don't like or have any interest in kinect because of all the crappy games they are selling to kids and soccer moms. does this make me a fanboy/troll or just someone who doesn't want that crap in his systems?
I'm wondering why not to enjoy what we have now and let kinect arrive so we can really see his potential. I'm leaving, i'll be playing uncharted 2, seeya!
I feel kinda bad ..cuz I honestly feel dat ppl like ign..edge ..gamestop are gonna bash kinect like crazy due to its casual 3 to 10 year old audiance ..and its lack of buttons what do u guys think ??
for core gamers
Ist really sad to be an xbox 360 only owner http://i51.tinypic.com/u96d...
is all those PS3 games are 2011 now :-p
Er... all but 2 of those were originally scheduled for 2011, or had no release date at all (3 if GT5 slips).
just out of interest who is actually getting kinect day 1?
@ prettyboy... me too, i just dont find it reasonable to pay so much for something that just looks like pure crap... and to be honest the casual's are not going waste $200+ on this
Xbox 360 owners i dont want u guys to miss out on the great games the ps3 has to offer, so please i welcome u guys w/ open arms X's n O'S
it's ok dude... please don't give me hugs and kisses when I get my PS3
this kinect is going to be fun.
I'm fed up with those Kinect articles. I saw it live, it fails to detect simple gestures not to mention any serious gaming. Fighters Uncaged is a joke with somewhere around FOUR moves. You move your arms and all you get is left or right punch, no difference. You kick and you get a kick but sometimes your character ducks. It looked like fighting games for Atari 2600, just better graphics (yet, still somewhere in the Wii range).
but marketing will make Kinect a hit...
So what, man? Microsoft will spend those money on some other money-breeding stupidity. Gamers' community gets nothing so why give a damn if you don't own their shares?
Kinect and 360 fanboys always assume it's the PS3 people dissing Kinect. They have convinced themselves that 360 owners are all on their side. Well I have several 360 owners as friends and they are disappointed in the shovelware Microsoft is bringing with the Kinect and are pissed. The people here only call everyone who says bad things about Kinect a troll or a PS3 fanboy because that is the only defense they have and don't have anything clever to say. And to make it worse despite Kinect's 'success',claims of dominance and complaining about PS3 trolls, half of them still troll Move articles to try and diss it and compare it to Kinect. That is why I come back to this site. You people are funnier then any other gaming site.
I have several PS3 owners as friends and they were disappointed in the crappy Move lineup and got bored really fast....and went back to playin KZ2 and MAG on the controller
lol REST IN PEACE MICHAEL
Hottest gift this holiday
If anyone bought this for me for Christmas, I would be pissed.
I'm sure you have nothing to worry about. :)
dtrain21 what is your point? I never said the whole PS3 community was on my side. We have Move haters too. But I don't assume that because they hate Move that they are automatically Kinect or 360 trolls.You see what I am talking about? Was that supposed to be some witty retort by saying basically the same thing I said a tossing it back in my face. Like I said, hilarious. You people argue like 4 and 5 year old kids. 'No it's not' 'yes it is' 'your stupid' 'no your stupider' 'my system is going to sell a bamillion' 'no it won't, 'yes it will' Your motion controls are stupid like your face' 'you insulted me and I am going to cry'.'I gonna buy it any way and you can't stop me', 'Opera and Ellen said it is great so it must be' You crack me up, all of you.
well said dude i own all 3 systems and i dont want the shovelware crap touching any of my systems. so my $150 will go towards 2-3 great games that i want to play not some stupid animal/dance/fitness games.
"The Wii ripoff known as MOVE, is pretty much irrelevant, especially since it is the same identical device as the Wii.

Even I am starting think it looks kinda neat, however; if I get it, it will be for my wife and ki" Dude, the Move was long before the Wii came out and that's are allready proven, but Sony wants more accurate and that's take time. Second, the Move works with the PS eye, the Wii doesn't have that it's just have infrared just like Kinect do. Kinect and MOVE are total differend tech, I bet that the PS Eye can also do the same like Kinect, it's proven with the PS Eye Toy back than, those people can free move without a Joystick just like Kinect. If you don't know how those tech works and develop in the past years than you need some knowlegde to talk about it. not just hate what you don't like.
The Move is the opposite of the Wii in function... it's a light that is captured by a camera... the wii mote is the camera that captures the IR light... cheaper in every way... but it works obviously though the Move works better
"Move was long before the Wii came out" AHAHHHHHA! the things PS3 fanboys say to make themselves feel better is just pure ROTFLMAO
@ Jason 360. You mean like when Kinect people convince themselves it not an Eyetoy despite their line up of Eyetoy clones. Please enlighten me again what games have they made for Kinect so far that differ from Eyetoy or Wii? How is it you defend Kinect shovelware but diss Move's line up?
The only thing about Move I diss is that it's a failure
Well, at least if Kinect fails, they can always add a glowing handheld controller ala Move. The PSEye wasn't selling so they had to do something with it.
Some games might actually be possible on Kinect. They will have to work hard to hide the lag and the inaccuracy, but not all games require full skeleton tracking. Single player should work OK. Two player on this game will really fail. They should have some color patches for clothing that Kinect can track, like the motion capturing studios. Would be easier than trying to put on a body suit. Will help the cameras a lot to track movement.
