kicks some life into the videogame industry??

i had no idea that it was on a decline let alone dying

"Previously, game controllers were complicated things, equipped with a bewildering variety of non-intuitive buttons and joysticks that required dedication to learn. Different games required different button sequences to jump, run, fight or whatever and each game had to be learned anew. Some games were incredibly complicated, requiring specific sequences of buttons to make particular moves."

im sorry but that BS right there made me rage...if people can figure out a damn TV remote, they can figure out a game controller...this author has never touched a real video game in his life

Buttons. How the f*ck do they work?

That's pretty much what I gathered from that paragraph. Painful to read that kind of idiocy.

any more for the video game market than the wii mote or move. God out comes kinect and people think its the second coming. M$ are no better than any of the others.

Do I think it is better? Short answer is: Yes!

Yep cause move and the wii actually work with good games like smg2 and RE5. While kinect has joy ride(rofl) and sonic ride which is antigrav but it doesnt work which antigrav did. Short summary move>wii>eyetoy>kinec t. Software wise Wii>move>eyetoy>kinec t.

Move adds nothing but an alternate control scheme, kinect is a whole new experience. Why would I want to play games that are better on a pad with waggle?

AceofStaves2004d ago

I agree with you. I have no idea why some people feel the need to call this gaming's 'Second Coming.' It's an alternate control scheme. That's it.

This excessive, unearned hype is unnecessary.

Why is it better?

I think it is close to same, but without a controller as move and wii mote.

It's better because he probably spent 150$ on it.

Megaton2004d ago

Actually, I'm pretty sure he was the guy who was proud to be pre-ordering 2 Kinects, so I think he spent $300 on it.
