Kinect wasn’t the first motion controlled home console device… not by miles

"It’s no big secret that the Kinect isn’t the first motion controlled gaming device to hit the market but after seeing this trailer for the Sega Activator I just had to post it.

Mainly because I clearly remember living in these times and thinking that everyone looked stupid on TV, fast forward a couple of years and my beliefs have been confirmed.

From a gaming perspective it’s not a bad idea really but unfortunately it just didn’t really work."

With lightning bolts and no compassion, you can make a butterfly.

Spin Muppet Spin! whats wrong Capt.Kinect couldn't show up so he sent the Joker to do his Muppet deeds.

"You Are The Controller!" Where have I heard that before? M$ can't even come up with there own slogans but they're the innovators in the industry's what a joke.

Solidus187-SCMilk2711d ago

"what a joke" that belongs to the industry.

dktxx22711d ago

Its all about advertising guys. Not innovation, manipulation.

fatstarr2711d ago

frustration from using this.

EVO-OM3GA2711d ago

Wait wait wait so does this mean that the Sony weren't the first to do motion control gaming are all agreed here cause I have only seen a few users mention the sega activator in accordance to alot of users on this site Kinect is an Eyetoy.

Also thank you Lazygamer for pointing out this fact

Ares84PS32711d ago

I can confidently say that Kinect is a Sega Activator.

It's so friggin' funny ! :D

lol atari was the first to use motion control, which is why all this bs about move being a copy is stupid, people have been making motion controllers for ages now, but kinect does have a lot of similarities to eyetoy that only fanboys will deny http://www.youtube.com/watc...
ps the fact that you lot called kinect new was your favourite excuse for choosing kinect over move, although now you have been proven wrong it hurts, us lot never claimed move was new all we said was it was an improvement on wiimote, which it is, and i'm going to enjoy playing kz3 with move, enjoy your casual games btw
