With Microsoft's motion-sensing accessory going on sale in a matter of hours, GamePro asked their Twitter followers to sound off on their anticipation level for the Kinect.
Not until there's direct PC support for it. Might be difficult without a dedicated PCIe card with a port for the camera and better sensors in it (version 2 or whatever). committing money to play Kinect Adventures is ludicrous.
what why????? This was made for 360 not for PC why would MS waste their time making it capatable for PC if the point of it is to play games for it on 360 and other stuff on 360. Plus what good use is it for PC at that price? Just saying you can get cheaper camera's, what are expecting Kinect games to come to PC also?
It was announced that it can be used for the pc. Though it's kinda doubtful since most pc setups are tight spaces and Kinect isn't meant for it.
Actually, Microsoft mentioned PC support a long time ago before we knew much information about it.
There are enough games that will be released that seem interesting enough, along with the fact that my family will love it. Plus I love the concept to me, its nice to have some alternatives while gaming. I wouldn't take Kinect as my main way of gaming since I like playing on a controller over motion control. But it still seems like an enjoyable experience, and most of the people complaining about it do not care for it because of automatic MS hate, or console loyalty. I can see why people can genuinely have distaste for it however , but its fault have been exaggerated quite a bit when compared to what it brings to the table IMO. Too many people just join in on the hating. It should be looked into deeply without biasness, because it could actually bring enjoyment; but it does have a hefty value that comes along with it, so you should be smart with your money. $150 is quite a bit.
Well you can spend your money whatever way you want. I agree there is too much Kinect auto-bash, some people take pride in seeing it fail and mock those who say they will buy it, but I hope you get what you want of it. That's what matters most anyway. Personally I never seem to buy products until I get a clear picture of how it looks like down the road. I gotta let this one sit in and simmer for a bit.
I think that kinect defo has potential, its just for me personally at the moment there are no games i want for it so ill wait and see. @ Alpha-male22 completely off topic but that dexter season 4 finale was fantastic, best episodes ever imo, the twist at the end i was screamin at the tv WTF!!!!
No there's nothing of interest for me as i like playing core games.
not buying it either. i will if/when a game drops that i find interesting
Have Wii and Move and now I get to complete the trifecta w/ Kinect.. Just liked the Wii..all the pre-hate has reached an all-time new level..but at the end of the day it's going to stop a thing.. People are going to going to judge for themselves.. The Gamestop Kinect pre-order is in..but as for games it looks like I'm going to pick up Kinect Sports, Motion Sports, and Kinectimals for the the youngins in the fam... On the 18th I'll probably pick-up Game Party and Dance Central These should be alot of fun for the family and friends at Thanksgiving.. Ultimately look forward to Child of Eden and Steel Battalion.. The launch line-up is as good as the rest of the motion line-up launches.. But I can't wait till Kinect hits Live Arcade.. I just want to play chess or Texas Hold-em using Kinect over Live..now that would be cool But..for now I look forward to using it for movies and VideoKinect w/ Messenger Evil
Geez all 3 motion controls? You sir, are a marvel. As for Kinect, at this stage, I have no interest. In the future, depends on the games.
LOL..I don't know about being a 'marvel' Let's face it everyone owns a Wii.. I'm well over a 100 games for the 360..and I own most of the big exclusives for the PS3.. But let's face..when family and friends come over..pulling out Halo Reach or Call of Duty just doesnt work for the non-gamers.. I love party and family games.. For the Wii..nothing comes close to Wii Bowling and my all-time favorite Boom Blox..not to mention the game shows like Deal or No Deal I absolutely loved the Scene it games for the 360..and 'your in the Movies' would have been amazing if it would have worked as good as advertised Similiarly..Buzz is actually pretty fun on the PS3 Sports Champions is easily the best game for Move right now..but 'Start the Party' is an ok party game too Last year we had a blast playing using the wireless wheel and having people play Forza 3..and I looked forward to doing the same thing with GT5 (sucks) But I honestly think it's going to be priceless this holiday to see me niece and all the young kids of family and friends interact with Kinectimals But plaing bowling on Kinect Sports, Football on Motion Sports, and Darts on Game Party are the type of games that are great for parties.. Especially since Gutar Hero parties simply got old last year.. But to each their own.. Evil
definitely no well at least for now.. i dont see nothing for me on kinects line up ill wait.. maybe in a year they will release something more interesting.. for now its pure casual stuff
IT EYETOY BUT FROM MS WHICH MEAN IT SUCKS... j/k Sorry figured I would make the above poster right. XP Nah I am not getting it though, no games that interest me just yet.
Yes, been waiting outside for a while now, can't wait to play dance central!
Asking this community if they are buying Kinect is like asking a lion if he is going to have a gazelle or a fruit platter for dinner.
HAHAHAHA! i'm cracking up at all the funny posts
My comment would be removed if I told you how I really feel about Kinect and its supporters, so I'll just leave it at "no, I'm not buying one".
Not even if it was given to me for free. Note to M$: nothing beats free ;)
That actually makes me more skeptical about the quality of the product, they are giving them away and nothing good ever comes for free.
yes! i will buy i feel like i will have lots of fun with my fam and when i have all the kids over. [email protected] fresh
Mine just shipped.
Even if I still had my 360 - it would be hell no.. haven't bought Move either. I have a Wii - for now I don't see why I need another motion thingy
Obviously I wont since I dont own a 360. But if I did I'd still wait until they showed some actual games for it. Impressive tech, horrible lineup of games. Hopefully by this time next year they show some more hardcore titles that peak my interest
No and I've never bought anything motion control related. Have I tried it? Yes and It's not for me.
I will not be buying kinect until I see something that interests me. I'm not really that much into motion controls but if something I like comes along for kinect I might consider buying it. I bought the Move and I've had a ton of fun using it with MAG and I'm looking forward to using it in KZ3. If MS incorporates Kinect into hardcore games in a clever and effective way like Sony has done with the Move, I might give it a try.
No I'm not.
Cant wait, there are over 100 people here at this Gamestop in Florida. Everyone seems to be having a good time!
Not initially but if some good games that strike my interest come out then probably yes. Until then I sit on this fence in comfort.
The problem with motion control is that most of the games center around showcasing how motion control works. So you get these generic games with simplistic controls and characters. There's few games that center around story and good game play. It's all about, wow look at this cool thing you can do with motion and here's this simple game we made around motion control. I hate to say it but yeah, most motion control games are gimmicky and the Wii hasn't progressed much farther than that.
Are there any reviews of this product other than obvious payed infomercials? Seriously what are they hiding from gamers who normally eager for review analysis...I saw sonic which did ok..a spot on Oprah with a studio of non gamers ecstatic for a freebie doesn't count
It's because MS wants to cash in on the hype before truth be told.
That has made the 360 what it is today despite having the most faulty gaming device in history. Like I said I think the 360 has a great library of games but as MS shifts focus to kinect which is obvious, I dont see anything exciting to look forward to next year besides gears 3. U cant blame me for hating on kinect & besides that the games for kinect aint even worth the $500,000,000 advertising. Now if they showed games like gears 3, halo reach, & other hardcore games using kinect then that $500,000,000 would be worth it but I see ppl saying the dance game alone is worth the $150, well the wii's, "Just Dance" game is the same thing & I dont need to buy kinect for that. Seriously the real question should be, "What does kinect have to offer which makes it better then the wii or move"? Honestly the answer is nothing because the wii & move have better games then what kinect offers.
Of course,i'm buying Kinect like more than 5 milion of people. Look at what is happening in New York ...........people thronged to buy Kinect. It's a great success,no doubt!
So because people are in New York "thronged to buy Kinect" this is reason to buy?? I am sure many will buy it but how many will be still using it after Christmas??...great novelty item for the Christmas party..but how long do you reckon the novelty will last? My fav is people wanting it to control movies and dashboard that novelty will be the shortest lived imo
and i want nothing to do with kinect. there is no way on gods green earth that this camera will be connected to my 360, especially with the shovelware titles it has at launch. i know quite a few new yorkers who want nothing to do with kinect. one of them is a super diehard 360 fan.
I like to point and click not wave and wait for it to load.
Many unwary consumers will get duped by Kinect imo Personally I was looking to purchase a Move game 2 weeks ago in Toys R Us during the buy 2 get 1 free they had and the young male assistant skipped right on by the question I asked to inform me that Kinect launches soon and as been in development for 3 years..lol I politely told I was not interested because 1. I do not own an xbox and was only looking to spend $40 not purchase a Kinect bundle 2.Have owned a pseye for similar period to that MS development period and fail to see the major difference...apart from Kinect being 3 times more expensive. Expect many ps3 and wii owning kids to get Kinect cameras this year if their parents shop at Toys R Us..lol
No thank you. PS Eye, EyeToy, and Wii Sensor Bar is all I need around my TV.
I mean...why would I?
I am not buying it because I think it is not possible to use Kinect in games a bit more hardcore such a Super Mario Galaxy2 ,Metroid Prime3 or a Zelda game that we can find those games on the Wii. If I can only play super ocasional games on this Kinect then I will stick with my Wii since I already got 4 wii remotes and ready to rumble with party games with friends and it can have better gameplay and more versatile games then Kinect. For me the Wii was a very interesting experience because I could play some hardcore games in a different way. Unfortunetelly I don't see that happening with Kinect.
BLACK OPS IS MY CHRISTMAS PRESENT :)
I need buttons, precision accuracy and devices that support core games for my 360's. I'm just not a fan of casual games that are simplistic in design. I have tried them before and the novelty wears off way too fast for me personally. Lean left, lean right, jump, duck, swing arm, swing other arm, duck, rinse and repeat, that just doesn't do it for me.
Wishing it to fail wont do any good. Wish in one hand and crap and the other and see which piles up faster. Kinect looks like it's going to do well, I cant wait to get mine in about 30 mins! I'm a "Core" gamer in my 20's but I look to what Kinect will be able to do, it's going to be fun for cracking some beers open and having a good time. XBL is gonna make it so much better then Wii or anything else out there. Honestly I'll always be a core gamer, but sometimes the constant competition on COD, Halo, Gears ect.. Get's to be too much. Nice to relax and just game to have fun like the old days.
LOL i will not buy the kinect because it is a waste of money, because the camra is very sensitive, it has no hardcore games, it makes you look like a redard. It is a eye toy rip off, i rather get a wii, when the kinect has a real game it will be stupid because the way you will hold a gun or try to swim. the driving will also be stupid because you will need to sit down and the kinect won't let you sit lol. why waste your money on something that is $150 when the move is $120 and more accurate with exclusives games and other multiplatform games, with 3D support.
Until they add the feature to let you sit down and play Steel Battalion. I'm not going to walk in place to play a game.
Kinect= HAL9000 http://www.youtube.com/watc...
will be buying dance central and getting kinect adventures for free...the only game that looks interesting on move is that volleyball game....other then that...
Great you got it free...good for you...at least you may not get buyers remorse. I can only imagine how much fun it will be to jump left, right and up and down in your living room followed by a bit of dancing...lol
So why should we? It would be foolish if we do.
