The calibration feature of Microsoft's Kinect seems to have a problem with bright lighting. The guys of Cynamite have taken the system to their (brightly lit) studio and the results have been, well, amusing - to say the least.
doesn't work when its too dark? doesn't work when its too bright? only works when its "just right" sounds like little red riding hood.
you should brush up on those fairy tales, cause i think that story was goldilocks and the 3 bears lol
haha !! lol bro !!
And the other does not Lmao @ brush up on those fairy tales....But fried's point still made sense so you both win
dose any one need play kinect in the sun or darkness?
''dose any one need play kinect'' and ? that part made really good sense!!!
You mean Goldilocks?
Yet you still get people and news sites(clearly paid) saying its actually very good with no issues :L
MS hype machine didn't help this thing sell out. witch is surprising considering that MS said they had to stop pre-orders cause the demand was to great.
I'm telling anybody, to give kinect a try for themselves, nothing against the wii or move but seriously kinect is alot more fun, I got off work early and spent 5hrs playing kinect adventures, kinect sports, and dance central with my wife and kids and it was the most fun we ever had gaming together. Its not just for kids, I had a neighbor over he's my age and we both were getting competitive having a great time. Lag wasn't a problem, my house is avg size and space wasn't a problem(it tells you when you're too close or not far enough), 6ft really is not alot, I'm a black guy and I setup kinect ID for me and my whole family, it had no problem recognizing me, the dashboard stuff and voice recognition is amazing, I'm telling you kinect works, seriously I'm not saying its going to make you breakfast but its a great piece of tech and the games are alot better than microsoft has been given credit for.
i got it yesterday and I live in a townhouse and is not that big at all and i got no lights in the celing ,so I got 1 lamp and it work fine and I dint got no issues to be honest it got a really small lag and is not a issue .I calibrated this ting once and it work fine and I play advetures and sports and they work fine ,maybe some units are bad like the rrod but so far I dint have and issue and I have I blast with my wife so I got her into gaming for once and that for me is great!!! and a lot of ppl said that ms pay IGN for the review and they gived a 7 score so realy are u guys that much of a fanboy!!and I got move and the game by game calibration is enoying but move works better than kinnect but kinect is nothing like the eyetoy,my eyetoy suck balls and i removed the dust to play move,thanks move for make me used my eyetoy again
Us hardcore gamers don't sit around play lame shit like kinect adventures and dance central proves your not a gamer.
Tell me that your still playing for 5 hours a day in a month. Sure you just got it so it's great... When I first got move it was all I played for a week, but now I only play a little each week.
lol are you serious? No, it works fine. I first calibrated it with the lights on and it played fine, later at night I played it with all the lights out and it worked fine, I didn't have any special lighting tricks, just the lights on or off. I moved moved my coffee table over to the side wall out of view, and just started to play games. Theres alot of misinformation I'm hearing and I just dont see it. Sometimes I went to the wrong menu because of course Im getting used to it but other than that its really easy to use.
I'm with FriedGoat on this one, real gamers dont read kids story books, shoot....going by N4G average member standers we dont read period.
Well BAM..that sucks.
It has problems ,.. because all it can do is ps2 eye-toy games,.. Now that is the problem at 150usd,..
'You think that's bad' In the UK it's £130, which equates to $211
think of it as a blessing.
Thing came out mentally challenged.
kinect has to be the biggest hardware disappointment for this generation of gaming lol.
agreed yet certain news sites are giving it good scores even though there is clear eveidence and proof that its not good tech, and that every kinect game so far is on rails and pretty much a complate clone of each other
yeah i guess its a case of either microsoft paying the reviewers, or the people reviewing arent very experienced. Cos i can even see though all the videos how unreliable the tech is.
i must disagree, biggest hardware disappointment will be this: http://futuremark.yougamers...
At least it works and it plays games and it has some good MMOs. Kinect is FAIL!
Wait, so in all seriousness, can people see the bottom of their avatars shoe yet, or did they take that feature out also?
More like avatard shoe
XD i lold
Dude, im being serious, can they?
I thought we would get rid of these 'I found a video with a glitch!!!!111' things now Kinect is released and hundred thousand people are playing it. Reviews are more positive than Move reviews. People report it works one video won't change anything. end of story.
What gave you the impression that releasing this tech to the public would decrease the Kinect fail videos on YouTube? If anything they openned the flood gates for glitch videos.
Reviews from tech/gaming sites are lower than Move reviews for hardware.What have you been reading?New York times?Oprah? Try Arstechnica,1UP,IGN,Techradar, Gamesradar.
"Reviews are more positive than Move reviews." Poor delusional liar, Xfanboys pathetic speciality. Move reviews are way better, and the games are not only for casuals, don't be so ms brainwashed, be a gamer ! "Don't bother, this is N4G. Most users are haters of everything coming from Microsoft, no matter what you tell them." Lol, the crying fangirl living in the opposite world : it's just bad products and games that people bash, and never "hate" ! ("hate" is only the feeling of desperated xfanboy without bluray, best exclusives, best graphics, free online, best motion controler, etc, people like you, bashing/hating the real good stuffs)
lol says the person who thinks posting 1 picture with 100 move starter packs proves move is not selling...... hypocrite!!
