Kinect is every bit as accurate as a traditional controller, if not more so, claims Kinectimal's David Braben.
I think this dudes been dosing with large cat tranquilizers.
Funny line...bubbles ups for you. "Kinect is every bit as accurate as a traditional controller, if not more so." This was one of the most asinine statements that I have ever seen.
As asinine as the Kinect doesn't lag, humans do?
Is there a kinect other than the one I have seen? Edit: At least there is a 3 way...........comparison. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Even a Kinect fanboy couldn't keep a straight face after that one.
Maybe it's not as accurate, but these arguments are as pointless as comparing keyboard and mouse to a controller. A controller may not be as accurate, but gaming on a controller is just as fun, if not more so.. opinions may vary on that, though. Although not as accurate as the Move because there's an actual controller, it's the games that will make it count as a worthy purchase. As of now, there's one good game on the Kinect, maybe? I don't but we'll have to see how developers will come up with ideas for the Kinect and hopefully implement it to a killer game. I'll wait and hold judgement on the Kinect for now.
was that 500 million ad money or bribe money?
We didnt really expect the guy who made the game to come out and say that the kinect sucks, but please buy my game still
Has he tried Fighters Uncaged or Joyride yet? Obviously not.
lol its understandable to back products you make games for but kinect in no way is as accurate as a control pad lol.
when the POPE has 1 bubble! =P then again...You are a bit of a trolling pop =P prefer you to Benedict though, that guy is plain Sith!
I remember some one saying something like this on a Kinectimal demo preview: "I tried to strangle the tiger with my hands, but the kinect don't seems to pick it up and and the tiger is rather enjoying it instead. It felt rather strange." LOL
When your Stoned
I don't know...even then I think it'd be hard to say its as accurate lol.
when you're drunk?
best joke allday
Wait wait, there's also this: ""Kinectimals can win over core""
yea, no. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
and now in German http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Falsch Faaaalsch LMAO I live in germany so i wwatch scrubs like everyday love it
this pr bs is really annoying.....one things for sure though. 'some' really believe him. When people say tricky bs to influence it turns me off quicker than thinking of my gran naked. we shall see ah
dude this is not pr,.. this is fucking LLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL;:: omg,. (ok no more alcohol for me today,.. I think I broke my rib laughing,.. )
what ticked me off was when an MS pr BULLCRAP was rated as NEWS! seriously, it isn't news companies talk bullsh!t...its OPINION
Braben, I don't mean to alarm you but there were some guys here in white coats looking for you. They gave me these meds to give to you. All joking aside, JUST STOP. I mean you can talk up your product without making delusional statements. This is pure PR spin over drive!
That 500 mil media blitz has got them all fooled!!!!
dude we are running out of money,..Not much effect!! Are we been spending it on this guy again?!!? Sieg!
Just picked mine up an hour ago. Set it up and have it mounted on the wall close to the celling. I agree I'm surprised how responsive it is. I don't know what the media is talking about.
You know,.. about responsiveness,..So you are saying ,.. Wii would blow your brains out an Move would make a 60 meter crater where you stand,.. No bro have fun,..no sell that fucking most expensive eye-toy ever made,.. dude that is like 10usd now,.. Im not even going to try anymore,..
Been playin around with the dashboard only so no games yet. My take on the repsponsiveness... When you use your hand as a pointer on the dash for the first time you will be shocked at how accurate it feels. It honestly is as fast and accurate if not more so than the control pad. It's hard to describe but the biggest issue is orienting your hand in space to the pointer on screen. Its an odd feeling especially if you are used to using a device in hand to do that. Space is an issue. In set up I have the camera just past 6 feet from the edge of my couch. This is absolutely fine for any dashboard usage, but in terms of play space you really will need atleast 7 feet from the Camera...I would venture 8ft really is the sweet spot for the back of the play space. Also, I would suggest mounting it on top of a TV that sits in/on an entertainment center. 6ft seems like it will be ideal. Fortunately for any game that need space to play...I can easily swivel my flat screen and create a big enough play space for those games. I suggest anyonw with similar space issues look into a swivel base for their TV. I had no problem with voice commands either outside of just getting used to saying the commands. Voice quality also appeared to be very good considering I was 6ft away from the microphone. I alos didn't need to yell or raise my voice...it worked fine with normal voice levels.
When you do voice commands do you have to say XBox first? I saw a few videos and most say XBox first. Is that just a PR / Advertising thing or do you have to address it like that? Is it a finger print magnet like the old finish on the PS3 and one on the 360S? What type of display do you have Dlacy? Do you own a Wii or Move? I have a Wii but not a Move. On my LCD's, DLP's and LED's displays I own I get weird stuttering with the Wiimote when it's tracking sometimes. Do you see any of that with Kinect? On my old CRT tube sets the Wii works flawlessly.
You have to say Xbox only to bring up the command voice prompts. from there you can just say "next" to move to the next screen....then just say "next" again to move to the next screen, etc... You only need to say Xbox to alert Kinect that you want to use voice commands. Once its in that mode you dont have to keep saying "xbox".
http://www.flickr.com/photo... There is the link to the pic of Kinect. I have a 50inch Plasma, no I haven't seen any issues with stuttering, etc... but to be fair... I only had about an hour with it and was primarily messing with settings and navigating the dash, sending a message and doing a chat with it. I do know that one issue on the Wii is with high heat displays and the sensor bar proximity. The closer you bar is to a heat source the more distorted it can get as the heat from the TV will distort the IR signal. Same thing happened with my old Turtle Beach headset that used the IR signal.
It almost disappears on your Pansonic plasma stand. I look forward to your podcast later in the week.
Lol im watching a live review right now of all the games and no it is not responsive...It is the most responsive when going through menus but even then it has it's problems. Edit: The pseye and this are almost identical the only thing i can truly give kinect is the way it can follow your body Also these 2 look similar http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I'm going to sound like a broken record but I don't care. Post some pics of it in your room gigaware. I want to see that shiny sexy black camera in all it's glory. What games did you get with it? Come on man take those pics. @gigaware below. Then take some pics and shut us up man. Dlacy13g I believe has it. He never came off as a troll or fanboy that I can remember. You on the other hand have appeared to be nothing but since you created your account a WHOPPING 8 days ago.
LOL at the disagrees. I have this thing not you. I don't know about Move or Wii nor do I care, all those systems are doing is tracking two points at the end of stick. kinect is in a different league it's way more advanced and doing much more lol.
put up or shut up man...........8 days and you've annoyed a whole heap of people in such a short time so let me help you if you really are fresh to n4g, though i highly doubt it. People wont listen or believe what you say if you keep talking crap or or say things you cant prove ESPECIALLY new accounts. Dlacy13g seems like he has it and we'll listen....its not rocket science
I tried Kinect Adventure at Best Buy and guess what: in front of 6 people, 2 BB employees, they witness a .4 micro-second of lag and my character doing the Russian folk dance when I kneel. >_<
wut Are you sure you didn't mean 400ms of lag lol
I did notice 1 second lag during the space level. >_<
lol My comment got marked as trolling up there even though I have 9 agrees and 0 disagrees. Only on N4G, I swear. There has to be a group of members on N4G that works to get comments removed. There has to be, because that is just ridiculous.
This is a lie, is a fact that is not as accurate as a controller.
wow good to see he feels that way.
Coming from the guy who made the precursor to EVE-online, 20 years ago. How the mighty have fallen!
and I laffed until I could not laff any more.
I seen Kinect in BB and even though I didnt play it.... it is no way as accurate as a control pad..... not a knock... just try it for yourself and you will see
it clearly isn't... I know it's in his interest to spread trash to help hype his game. But I wish there was more honesty in the indusrty Which is why I like David Jaffe, he says shit how it is.
"Kinect is every bit as accurate as a traditional controller, if not more so, claims Kinectimal's David Braben." You just can't do more damage control...
