Next year will be "amazing" for gamers on Kinect and 360, says UK boss
i remain cautiously optimistic.
Take it with a pinch of salt
I played kinect and it works well but the games are simplistic and I just don't see a core title ever working with it. Prove me wrong MS but I just don't see it happening.
just dont be surprised if it happens. I would be more surprised if it didn't considering what it took to get this far.
Microsoft: "Just wait guys, but while you wait, please buy Kinect, because sometimes in 2011, we'll announce core games. LOL."
@King-Leonidas Not trying to insult you or anything my King, but that's kind of off topic.
i thought u guys would enjoy it... sorry
Nah, I like it and already watched it a couple of times but some people might get angry :D.
That vid is funny!
Did people really think that there would only be 2 exclusives games (Gears 3 and Crytec game) for the X360 in 2011? Of course there are going to more kinect games and non kinect games announcements for next year. No console would survive with only 2 exclusives a year.
lul,and gt5 just made it!
Exactly. Microsoft usually announces some of their games closer to their release dates anyway. Most of you might think Microsoft is stupid enough to not secure any exclusives but I'm confident there will be enough titles for 2011. Not as much as Sony maybe but still.
Is there a list of confirmed exclusive PS3 titles for next year with dates? Why do I get the impression these so called games are really being used for bragging purposes.
because it is! How long did you see GT5 on the list games coming next year?
hardcore kinect game.. gears of war 3..on rails when used with kinect
They should've you know brought some examples of all these "core games".
codename d http://www.youtube.com/watc... rise of nightmares http://www.youtube.com/watc... Steel Battalion Heavy Armor http://www.youtube.com/watc... Project Draco http://www.youtube.com/watc... Haunt http://www.youtube.com/watc... now you gotta admit this is better than nothing
I'll wait till the reviews are out before I get all kinds of excited. -.-
the guy asked for some "core" games and I gave him a list. what does that have to do with your level of excitement?
I dont like the way those games look i hope they clean up some of the Kidy in them. I know someone knows what i mean
I guess what I'm getting at is that my response to avengers had a purpose, and that what to supply some info that he had asked for, thats all. its quite a non sequitur to then chime in that you dont like these games as a response to my list. If you had said those games were not for kinect or that my list was not really a list I could understand, but it seems like you just found a thread that was not negative enough and felt it was your duty to add a little negativity.
I apologize if I'm being cautious, I didn't realize that was frowned upon in the Kinect articles. The reason your list has something to do with my excitement is because I truly want something cool to play so I have a reason to buy Kinect.
@BabyTownFrolics; thank-you for doing the leg work that the article it's self didn't do. I'm not sure why I got so many disagrees, just for asking for examples. Project Draco and Haunt look interesting
People disagreed with you being cautiously optimistic? I dont understand.
Microsoft: "Don't worry, Core gamers! There's plenty of games ahead for you in 2011! Which ones? Ummm, there's that one...by those guys. You know those guys? And that other one...the one that you Core guys really like. I'm sure you're as excited as we are about that one!" Seriously, stop it. Either show the games or give it a rest. We know Kinect is for the casuals. We're good with that. But we saw what was at the Tokyo game show. A lot of on rails stuff and games that probably won't even see release in North America. You want to appeal to the Core gamers, how about you come up with some new IP's for your console. There's only so many times you can expect us to buy Gears and Halo.
I have an idea. Why don't you stop trolling X360 and Kinect articles. It's obvious you have an agenda. If you think the only games to play on the 360 are Halo or Gears then you are truly ignorant. On topic: I believe the games for Kinect will continue to get better. There is no way Microsoft would invest this much time and money into releasing Kinect and not give it the proper support.
Let's hope they follow through with this promise. I'm still skeptical about these hardcore Kinect titles. Will they ever be as good as a standard hardcore title? With the camera-based control interface - I don't think so.
Hardcore Kinect games will more than likely be Hybrid based with a few requiring no buttons. Not sure either how things will work out but will wait and see.
It's pretty obvious Microsoft will release a move-like or navigation-like controller to complement the kinect. And when that happens, the snark on N4G will be utterly unbearable.
That would never happen right now. Pushing an additional accessory is something the public would quickly reject. That doesn't make any business sense. Don't you think MS thought about these things before they sink millions and millions of dollars into the business?
is if they release a controller your gonna have to buy that as well i bet. Don't you think its would be getting quite expensive and ridiculus at that point. Honest question you can't honestly be so blind as to be okay with constant upgrades and new items you have to buy. I understand some of you don't mind paying for the stuff you already do but how much are you willing to take. You have to buy a controller for an advertised controllerless device? I hope i get one for Christmas from my wife.
It will be interesting to see what they come up with, since whatever it is it will be something new just because of the control method they have to use.
For simply saying something as non offensive as that?
Maybe because people actually disagree with him. Think of that?
nobody likes Omega im afraid
I disagreed with him because i dont see that using Kinect forces any radical new control system so therefore i disagree with what he wrote. The only thing that kinect can do that any other camera only based system cannot is track movement along the z-axis and even this is not used in most of the games we have seen so far. In fact applications whichcould have used the Z-motion (like Forza E3 demo where you could walk around the car) used a system of hovering your hand over things to select them rather than pushing forward along the Z-axis. Maybe the Z-tracking isnt responsive enough for gaming ?
Because it's a ms employee always hyping ms products (even the bad ones), and downplaying sony's products (even the good ones). and talking about " it will be something new just because of the control method they have to use. ", when eyetoy is 2000, it's just a joke. "I cant wait for Kinect to prove asses like you wrong " they never learn..
I thought one guy from MS said Move was a "cool product" Im probably wrong and misread the headline.... ^
Funny how people think the Z axis isn't "used" in the current games. Kinect Adventures uses it very well for Rallyball (Ricochet). Yourself Fitness uses it to determine if you are punching across your body or if your legs are properly bent. There are certainly games that COULD operate without it, but that doesn't mean that they don't use it or that they work as well without it. Seriously, just saying something doesn't make it true. "Jessica Chobot has three male members... sticking out of her left elbow." See? That didn't make it true, did it?
PS3 fanboys don't like Omega4 because when they troll 360 articles Omega always has positive thought out things to say that make PS3 fanboy agendas harder to sell. Omega disrupts the anti 360 tone PS3 fanboy trolls try to set in 360 articles.
if i ever read one. you can't be serious that or your omega 2md account. God i can't believe you would believe that nonsense the internet is full of special people.
I agree with you. I got kinect for the family to play on and I'm very impressed with it its very good at tracking all of us and the voice control is better than anything I've ever seen. There is alot of room for improvment too like accessing the full dash with kinect and adding kinect control into my movies I stream off of my server but they have made it as simple as possible for every one to pickup and play. I look forward to seeing what MS add to kinect over the next 6 to 12 months.
Congrats N4G. You just may be changing
No offense... but N4G isn't changing. It's still filled with snarky infants.
Halo on rails crackdown on rails banjo on rails gears of war on rails alan wake on rails
You can't even pull that off with kinect,.. Out of curiosity, will someone explain how a serious on-rail shooter would work with kinect,..? It wouldn't,.. unless it is like bubble pop for eye toy,.. I don't even want to think about it,..
no one wants to play killzone 3 with move,they are just using it to throw in your face ps3 has hardcore motion games. the fact is its a gimmick tack on,you will use it then use your controller like your suppose to,and it wont support move online so no point in even getting good with with cause it will only be for offline play,due to the move auto targeting.
Child of Eden. That's how. It's not all that difficult to imagine... unless you just don't want to. http://www.ign.com/videos/2...
child of eden is ps-eye game also,.. I doubt you will evenn need move controllers,.. so what are you saying?
Troll And you know this because you have all of the technical schematics on Kinect and a thorough understanding of its limitions I cant wait for Kinect to prove asses like you wrong
Kinect already has proven pricks like this wrong and will continue to as the tech progresses.
How has Kinect proved anyone wrong, besides the fact that it can run simple, content-lite games quite well? You're still seeing the limitations.. The games released so far are sports/fitness, party/casual, arcade racer (flawed). If those genres are a representation of what Kinect can do, then you'll be lucky to see anything more complex than Kinect Sports. It's nothing like its E3 2009 iteration (Project Natal) so already there they've lost their standards. Telling people that Kinect proved them wrong, isn't much to brag about, considering you fanboys were bragging about how amazing and revolutionary Natal was gonna be and its likenesses to Minority Report. Kinect will forever live in the shadow of Project Natal - the dream that Microsoft failed to deliver.
I love it when a troll calls out another troll. But it does always leave me confused about their intelligence
How many times you keep saying this shooter 'on rail' BS.. You wouldn't if you were smart enough to see the Kinect and the controller can work together.
I love me some hardcore.
Guys they already announced two hard-core games Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor Project Draco (panzer dragoon)
on rails or broken.
Ok so your just assuming this, how about we wait like mature people and see how they turn out.
What wwm0nkey said, you're just assuming. Everyone assumed Kinect didn't work and it would fail, and so far its a huge hit and owning one myself and playing the games I can tell you it does work.
Hmmmm must have misinformation swimming through my head. All the good kinect games are on rails though. That star wars game, the Harry potter mini game. That's not a bad thing,especially right now, my move controller is being used for on rails games like the shoot and time crisis. I say bring it on MS, if you stuff this up, then you will have screwed your hardcore fan base. I remain cautious, but optimistic about the prospect of kinect interaction with hardcore games. @T9 it all depends on your home layout though, personally don't have kinect yet, but I only have 5 feet and I am 6 foot 8 so that isn't enough for me. But playing move games work fine. Cause the ones I play I sit down for. Kinect works for some, and not for others, which is a huge mistake on MS part. I am moving my tv to a bigger area so that I can play kinect but that is a huge hinderance to me. And I am sure there ar many others in the same boat. Just like how the reviews are split between being somewhat positive, to downright broken.
@T9X69 and you're assuming it's a huge hit. It's been for a week, and I can easily find them in stores. No one on my friends list has it, they're all playing COD or Halo. My friends list ranges in age from 18 - 36.
Until we see gameplay, I will remain reserved. We have seen no other way for these hardcore games to be played besides on rails. Unless they use a controller, I don't see how you can play these Hardcore games differently than on rails.
Oh and the guy was just talking about showing more of the games form the tokyo game show. Not more new games the word announcement isnt even used in the article.
I'm getting the impression that many of these upcoming games will be much like the launch games, only scary to make it seem like it is core.
It is an ir depth eye-toy type of device,.. Wtf are people expecting it to do?? Maybe the ridiculous 150usd price tag makes people think it has some untapped potential,.. It is cool and all, but in terms of gaming applicability it would be really damn limited, even if it tracked you at 240fps 0.5cm square precision,..with no lag,.. (kick-boxing game ftw!!) I am not saying it is useless,.. And eye-toy type of games can be really fun,.. Party games and shit,.. are awesome and fun,.. This will be used mainly as webcam,.. a really f***** expensive eye toy,.. And holy shit ,.. even the games are ridiculously expensive,.. If it ever does anything that in core gameplay, is different than 10usd eye-toy,.. by itself (without move-wii type of controllers,..) I will admit that I am wrong,.. and eat crow,..
People seem to have no clue what the hardware is doing.One guy on here even said if felt more responsive than Move.That's not physically possible except the occasional poor programming. If people spent a little time thinking about how these devices work they might understand the limitations a bit better.I read tech sites suggesting that Kinect hardware is really advanced,it's not.The software is advanced but an IR emitter,RGB camera and CMOS sensor are off the shelf cheap components. The fact is that Kinect guesses a lot and has purely visual input.This cannot match the accuracy of visual,gyros,accelerometers combined.There just isn't the information available to be processed and is limiting.
