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?

Non_sequitur2882d ago

He's probably typing a page long comment about how afraid you are of Kinect.

evrfighter2882d ago

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.

ChronoJoe2882d ago

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.

N4GAddict2882d ago

I don't know about that

*Takes deep breath*


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.


Chnswdchldrn2882d ago

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
