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!!
and all i can say is that all the negativity heaped upon it is unwarranted. I set it up in my tiny one bedroom apt, yet I have the 8ft needed (with removal of a coffee table) for the 2 player recommended set up. I have had no problems with lighting. I created a silver account for the wife and so when she turns on the 360 and waves at it she can start gaming with no fuss. The games at launch are casual but they are fun to play, we were smiling, laughing, jumping, ducking, and overall having a great time. Friends came over and more good times ensued. so while folks on N4G are getting their kicks bashing it, tons of folks are having a fun time with it. I would say this if your looking for an alternative to the way you play your games with a controller or are looking for a more advanced wii with hd graphics go with MOVE. If your looking to get some low impact exercise and to have a fun goofy time with friends and family go with Kinect. If some hardcore focused titles come to Kinect in future I would appreciate that, but gaming with my wife (who never turns on the 360 or PS3 unless its to use Netflix) has been totally worth it. Its just plain fun. one note: I will be picking up MOVE as well before the end of the year, so this is not a case of console preference. I like fun there is nothing more to it.
Don't bother, this is N4G. Most users are haters of everything coming from Microsoft, no matter what you tell them.
And I wouldn't have it any other way. :D
Then you must be a sad person, with all that hate building up inside you. My simpathies. Try to smile :) It's good for you.
Somebody gotta hate Microsoft. Tell you what, if you want to hear positive news on M$ xb360 head over to any other game site you can think of and check out their pro 360 forums, then come back and tell me which you prefer, the 360 fanboys on the other sites or the PS3 fanboys on N4G.com.....
I like what you have put on here and it is nice to here some one who has the device giving Kinect a positave out come. I am thinking the same as you when I get Kinect Next Wednesday it is for my other half and I to use to mess about on and for my little bro and sister to use when they come round. The point of Gaming if all about Fun if a game is not fun then it is not worth palying. I dont go off reviews I try a game or device before I have my say. MW2 is the best selling FPS on a console but I dont like it I thought Moh and BFBC2 were better games. I think Kilzone 2 is a stunning looking game but Halo plays better its not because I am a fan boy its because I play what I like to play. If you dont like kinect thats fine if you dont like move thats fine but stop bitching about them and look at the stuff you are interested in.
You just admitted that you like instant gratification instead of longterm. BTW, Kinect is not having low impact excercises. If anything it could lead to high impact on your knees.
at what point did I admit that I like instant gratification and how does that relate to most Americans? High impact on the knees? that is the best you can come up with to I guess challenge my opinion? I guess enjoying kinect and admitting it on N4G is just asking for trouble. whatever. have fun people if you can remember how.
Kinect is instant gratification. All the jumping and improper moves that people will do will cause high impacts on your knees; Just like running would. As to what I can come up with-I have more. I just perfer to use my mind on my research and just give a tidbit here and there for things that do not matter much in life.
is a camera, that allows the 360 to use motion controls. Instant gratification is the inability to wait in order to obtain something that one wants. any form of rigorous movement (exercise, sports, sex) will cause wear and tear on joints, bones, and muscle. in fact without these movements your body would become weak with atrophy, and all the health problems that come with that. Keep up with that research I would hate for you to use your mind on things that dont matter much in life, like putting folks down on a video game website with baseless judgments and absurd generalizations. Hopefully this research will amount to something and you can finally quit that job at Gamestop. Looking at your past comments you are a passive aggressive Ps3 centric Gamestop employee troll.
I am grad student now. Gamestop is part time until I get a Grad assistantship. Also, I am a huge PS3 supporter and I will always troll.
Move does not work in natural light ether so don celebrate so much and when that article came to N4g you just say "i wont play outside" so i really shouldn't take my time to write this...
It also has problems with basic speech...
the kinect makes your avatar go spaz
That avatar was getting funky...New game!!! "avatar funk"
lol just stand and do nothing...or try to calibrate and have your avatar look like a retard XD.
Kinect has problems in general
to expensive period!. only reason its being sold is because oprah told you to buy it.
