Botchweed: "PC gamers are usually better than their console counterparts at FPS games because they have the mouse which is a huge advantage."
Quote from the article: "PC gamers are usually better than their console counterparts at FPS games because they have the mouse which is a huge advantage. Though now it may seem that console owners, or more specifically Kinect owners could have the upper hand." The upper hand, really? I'm sorry, but they'll still get owned by KB/M users. Don't understand why they even try. Kinect might be able to do FPS games, but they never do them well. I play shooters for hours at a time. A Kinect FPS will be tiring, not as accurate, and using gestures to do routine things would be cumbersome plus prone to having the wrong action triggered in the heat of battle (Damnit, I wanted to switch weapons, not reload!). Why would anyone want to play a FPS like that?
yeah lets really put it to the test, Kinect player vs KB/M player in counter strike... I wonder who would win
I wonder if Captain Kinect will come to make sense of all this? Where is Ja Rule, I mean Bigpappy?
@Biggest He's probably typing a page long comment about how afraid you are of Kinect.
some people really want to like kinect apparently.
I would say it is a very impressive tech demo that could lead to other developements on Kinect. There are many options for Kinect. Who knows what will come of this?
The head line of the article is there to get your attention. It succeeded at that. I am not here to convince you or anyone else that Kinect is better or not as good as a mouse. What I can say with certainty, is that Kinect is in fact more accurate now then when I got it 2 months ago. I am excited to see where it is going, and what comes next.
One question: How do you strafe with this? The entire 5 minute clip, I did not see him strafe side to side at all. The movements he did in the video only seem useful if you're using Marathon, Lightweight, and Commando...
That's how I feel about any motion controller.
I can play with an XBOX controller at much greater levels of accuracy and response speeds than any instant showcased throughout that video. Seemed silly.
I don't know about that
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH A HAHAHA *Takes deep breath* AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHA HAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA This article is so full of wrongness and fail that I just can't believe it. In fact, Imma make up a new word for this incorrectness. Failharderrificness.
homer agrees. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
not even gonna read the article to make such a ludicrous statement, all they want are hits youd be a fucking fool to think any technology associated with kinect is better at FPS than Mouse and keyboard, perhaps in the future maybe something in terms of motion gaming will come along and displace Mouse and Keybo, but that aint happening for a while folks
Yeah. I have a Kinect and am a little skeptical about that notion. What with the response (or lack there of) and input lag that is apparent with the device(30 fps camera?). Here's hoping for Kinect2 with a possible 240htz speed or even better.
Kinect with some type of navigation controller, might work well.......
I own a Kinect myself, pretty much for game reviewing purposes only......otherwise, I have not used it at all..
I hope we get the option to used it in conjunction with some type of "controller" in the future, as that is the only way I think it's ever going to break through to core gamers.
Just like Eyetoy and Move..
You'd have to be full blown retarded to believe Kinect>>> Mouse.
Never go full retard man look what happen to Sean Penn.
Or Sarah Palin.
And the jokes just keep on coming. I mean seriously? Even a Move despite it's accuracy isn't quite as good as a mouse. People are starting to let Kinect sales go to their heads and saying a lot of strange things. I would rather put my money on Move VS Mouse rather then Kinect VS Mouse. Just stop.
Building up hype with BS articles for a lesser quality product than everything else avaliable? Sounds like M$ have taken a page out of Activision's book.
Again, while these are actually all 3rd party hacks which have nothing to do with Microsoft. Stop bashing MS for the sake of it. It's not as cool as you think.
neither move or kinect will be as great as the mouse because you need a certain distance, lighting or and many other factors that may disrupt your gaming plus who wants to hold their hand up for hours, you can but is it better? i have move and love it waiting to try it with killzone on the 2nd but don't think it'll be better than controller
Well they have proof which is right here http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Kinect>Mouse...lol...too funny Only thing possibly better than a mouse is this: http://www.youtube.com/watc... Wish it were mass produced...a company is suppose to be working on it.
DAMN! Make it wireless, remove the screen from the gun and replace it with 3D Goggles, and have the player stand on a 360-degree free-moving platform (like a treadmill, but moves at the same speed as you in the opposite direction, in every direction, so you stay on the same spot) and we're ready for the future. XD
"Pew-pew" Fail. Kinect <<<<<<< Dual analog <<< M&KB
yea.. every time i play kinect i drink mi milk shake!
Yeah right... Just check the specs. Not technically possible.
