CNET: Kinect Review

With its impressive body tracking and unique, controller-free experience, Kinect is great for casual gaming parties and workouts--assuming you have enough room to play it. (Kinect, Xbox 360) 3.5/5

wow even cnet
can't give this thing a break. I still want to see more reviews. I am not going to buy it but i was thinking about it as a prank christmas present for my buddy. I want to put him on youtube for a lot of hits

thats an expensive prank?..
WildArmed  +   1604d ago
Exactly what I was thinking..

What happened to good old pranks?
...You know that involved more effort than $$$.
jahcure  +   1604d ago
149$ isn't exactly expensive
for me at least. I know a lot of people are in school etc and it may seem tight, but i'm a working engineer and my wife is also an engineer. 149$ is really nothing. Heck we bought a $1899.00 bed on a whim when we went looking for a hammer tool set.

@ jahcure
Yeah that's nice to know.

Good for you.

Though, I don't have the setup required for kinect so it was never a possibility to get (my 360's in front of a bed).
WildArmed  +   1604d ago
lmfao, awesome.
Glad to see you are doing so well ^^

Still in college, so it did seem alot >.<

I would laugh if he actually got excited and opened it right up to play it, I bet you would feel dumb for spending that much money just to fail lol.
WildArmed  +   1604d ago
Though, I don't plan on buying it.
I'm still interested to see how the reviews turn out..
how much they willing to forgive or not forgive when it comes to reviewing the tech.

C-net really weren't forgiving.

The funny thing with CNET is that you can't expect CNET to please everybody.

If they review a MS product positively they are obviously owned by MS. If they review MS product negatively it just emphasizes that the product was SO bad that even their mother couldn't love it.

I guess that's their fault for having a tie to MS, consequently they are always taken lightly

share your bubbles!!!

lol, I agree on your point.
GamingGamer  +   1604d ago
Well they did
entirely skip mentioning if there is lag or not.

or if there are any glitches. or if it is accurate.

but then again, they did not mention any accuracy problem with Wii...

from other reviews, those problems seems to exist still.

'Kinect is great for casual gaming parties'..

That's exactly what I mainly use Wii and Move for..

We already use the controllers for everything else..

looks like the reviews will be between 7 and 8 for most sites..

Good news for Microsft

The only review so far I have seen that pointed out lag issues is Engadget I'll have to read through the other main sites but i have yet to see anything about it

I agree. I was almost sure IGN would give it at least an 8.5 but they gave it a 7.5
StarScream4Ever  +   1604d ago
I'm guessing the mainstream media would give it an 80 average?
visualb  +   1604d ago
basically around same level as move
whats going to differentiate the two will be the games library...
kaveti6616  +   1604d ago
And now some fanboys will try to backpedal their way into rationalizing the scores.

Aka, "I guess the check didn't clear" or "I guess the 500 million dollars wasn't enough."

But when CNET gives an MS product a high score, it's "CNET is owned by MS."
Boody-Bandit  +   1604d ago
Looks like it will average in the 7's for hardware.
Some of the game reviews seem positive but a lot of them are using words as to why I am not interested as of yet. Casual, novelty, kids, family oriented, core 360 owners probably wont be interested in this device, etc.

The only game I think looks neat is Dance Central. Even though it's precanned moves I think it would be more fun to play than boring fitness games.

The Kinect love fest begins! Well it's over. Motion Control is officially taking over the industry. It's almost time to form the underground league of controller only gamers.

So far Kinect is getting 7.5 averages. Not bad but also not good.
Trroy  +   1604d ago
Wait... doesn't MS own CNET? They are so fired.
