Microsoft’s Kinect peripheral retakes the number one spot in HULIQ’s weekly top 20 tracking chart as pre-orders for 2011 titles and active games dominate the chart.
This should get interesting....
Just the responses i figured. LOL
It won't, it has no good games.
Funny how somthing that holds no interest to u and others continues to draw u in to click and say somthing.
It does hold an interest, it's popular but has no software worth a damn. The danger is everyone looks at that and says "hey, we could be making money off that" and no one invests in good games because shovelware sells a ton because people are idiots. So, yes, I will continue to comment on it.
Seems like your opinion based on "little" experience with it. I have had it since the beta and I have been enjoying it myself. Kinect Sports and Dance Central are the two I play the most. I play Table Tennis online alot. Seems the majority of consumers enjoy it as well that have purchased it. Nothing is forced on you yet you complain like you have lost money or time spent on a produced you don't want. If you don't like the product how come your time isn't spent more on the products you do enjoy. Now u claim people are idiots for enjoying the games on it? Who the F*ck are you? What makes you a "better" gamer. What is with this self view of I am better because I don't play this or that BS. I have been enjoying good games on the PC, 360 and PS3 since I was beta testing Kinect. If the landscape scares you about what options u have to chose with games then GTFO. Find a new hobby to invest in then.
What the hell is the HULIQ game chart?
My first thought also.
what games does kinect have again? like 5 casual ones>
I really don't understand how this stupid thing has reached #1.....
The Device, and some of the games that it has, are fun to play. It would seem that mmost people that have played it have generally liked it. Have you tried it out yet?
Try playing first.
they took two eyetoys, added a ir sensor and voila kinect is born, add 500m marketing budget featuring whoring out to opera and justin beiber and any gimmick loving person will buy it, just joking but we all know where kinect took it's influnces from and eyetoy and eyetoy never worked out well in the long run. and move is based on wiimote/pseye which can also do hardcore games and has lasted for 5 years, move is a very good improvement on wii because of the camera, and the fact it's precise and can do true 1:1 3d control with augmented reality and body tacking to boot as well, move will outlast kinect in the long run.
What about all the "after xmas everybody will sell their Kinect sensors and ebay will be full of Kinect! The demand will decrease rapidly!" comments?
That also came from the very same people who said: "The Wii is a gimmick and will never sell..." or "The sales of the Wii won't last..." LOL
Still stand by it... The hype period will blow over... New games release with Move support and no Kinect support. Dancing becomes boring. More mini games at full price and less core games as MS tries to make a quick buck from the mini / casual games... My XB360 core gaming friends have not gone for Kinect. Mostly because they are a very tech-savvy crowd, they can see what it can and can not do.
Open your eye 'btk', it is only just a dream.
Well you are right about the one part I suppose. According to the new info Top Spin is going to support Move but not Kinect. But I can see that going both ways. I'm sure there will be multiplatform games that only support Kinect. Maybe, maybe not.
I know I am enjoying mine. I will say that all games are casual fun. Isn't that why we play them? It's like if you don't have a game that requires a sweatband and Gatorade next to your chair then all of a sudden it's "Casual gaming". Gaming is all casual and all for fun, so play what you want and what you like and don't worry about what someone else likes or considers "Hard core" or "Casual". I will never let someone else influence what I want to do.
Bingo. Yet this was true before the Wii even came out.
It's not because the games are casual, it's because they're god awful even as casual games.
The Kinect games I own aren't awful at all. Dance Central, Kinect Sports, Kinect Adventures, all of those games scored well and more importantly are an absolute blast to play. People who have never tried Kinect or just hoping that it fails because it's Microsoft need to get over themselves. They are just games people! game for us all to either buy and enjoy or not, but there is no sense in arguing over it or numbers or any of that.
Lol dude, this is so unlike you. Who peed in your cereal?? Have you finally snapped because of kinect success and now your true colours have surfaced? Lol if you don't like it, why you here?
mmm intresting .. info there, bulletstorm and kz3 on the same day and bulletstorm is already on a high over kz3 this will be intrested to watch indeed new exclusive vs multiplat halo vs cod black ops... = bulletstorm vs kz3 ... hope the money sony invested in kz3 pays of and ppl buy a bucket load of it. i knw bulletstorm will sell come rain or sunshine it has gears3 in it that alone will take it skywards. smart move if u ask me. but the game can still ride on its own merits.. but would be nice to see how things turn out either way. secondly 360 titles are now flooding the charts.. and no wii first parties.. i think we all saw this coming and it will only get more. families seemt to dig this kinect thing.
bulletstorm >> kz3 please don't make me laugh, ps they used more or less the same engine from kz2 but tweaked it to use mlaa and have 3d as well, so your loss as the kz3 engine would not have as costed as much as the kz2 one
hey bud, read my comment carefully i didnt say bulletstorm is better than kz3.. so dont get all super defensive ... all i did was analytically look at he how the competition of sales will pan out ... and doesnt reflect qualtity and ofcourse we know sony knows how to bring quality in its first party titles ....
Most people who exprience Kinect love it. Meanwhile the little band of Kinect haters sit and fume in anger ...
