Gears of War creator Cliff Bleszinski has guaranteed a new generation of Kinect.
Wouldn't that kinda, you know......alienate the millions of people who bought the older one ?
B-b-bu-but... kinect was teh future A new yearly iteration of Kinect just like the iPad/iPhone?
I don't think me meant anytime soon. The "new generation" of Kinect would probably come out (if ever) sometime during the "next generation" of consoles.
"B-b-bu-but... kinect was teh future A new yearly iteration of Kinect just like the iPad/iPhone? " I don't know about other companies but MS's updates work miracles, the kind that flows through the internet and you don't have to install.
firmware for the kinect unit itself to improve its abilities. Middleware on the 360 to make it work better at processing what the kinect sees. Software in the games to tie the two together and make the games worth playing. All of which can be achieved in THIS generation of kinect.
Kinect was a mistake in 2 ways, Firstly it should have been bundled as standard with the xbox 3 (or 720 as some like to call it). That way everyone would have it and Devs be more likely to support it. Secondly, Kinect did not really release with any hardcore games, like some kind of shooter with decent graphics or some kind of RPG. having said that I do like Kinect, it's impressive tech and I've had a ton of fun with Dance Central, but it's not a game for everyone, that's for sure.
Im laughin so hard at the people trying too hard. Every piece of electronic does this. Take for example the first comment in this article. I guess the iphone 5 alienates the iphone 4 users too. Ridiculous lol.
But doesnt this happen with every electronic made.?
exactly...but of course, its by MS so they HAVE to be the only ones doing this /s easy example is tv's: sd, hd, 3dtv...that whole "alienating" argument could have been said prior to any of those tv's coming out...but they dont because its progress, just like whats happening with kinect (which i always assumed was going to happen anyways)...there are plenty of places to improve upon with the kinect NOW if they released this new gen of kinects anytime soon, THEN i would go along with the masses and saying that MS is alienating the ppl that already bought one, but this is a separate issue than just advancing on the current kinect
MS doesn't care. Remember Kin? Dead 2 months after it released lol. Funny because I remember them making such a big deal over it and all the ad campaigns like it was going to be the next big thing and than boom it was just gone overnight. @Fallouts below ever heard of market research?
are you that stupid? you really think ms wanted kin to fail cause they didnt care. it simply didnt sel, had no demand. would your dumb ass of had kept making it? edit so market research means you will have a guranteed success now huh. fdunny how clowns on n4g think they know it all from their basement..
No shit,Kinect 2.0 will be released sometime in the future This is like saying that new GPU will be released in 2012...me=nostradamus
Cliff says a lot of things that tend to be Bulls**t. Why should we believe him here?
Kinect 2 will be what kinect 1 should have been and how it was originally designed with dedicated chip, ram etc.
ah....it does have dedicated chip and remember they say it is upgradable via software? Where the hell u get your fact from plb?
Well it happened to the eyetoy, now there is the PS eye. I could see Kinect, Move and the Nintendo motion plus getting upgraded in the future if either of the companies deemed to do so. How well will they turn out if indeed they got released? Who knows.
Kinect set the marker for what motion gaming should be. Next gen Kinect is going to be Godly. Minority Report here we come.
Laggy on-rails over-expensive limited gameplay with a few hacks thrown in for good measure?
wasn't kinect 1.0 ment to be minority report lol
Something tells me this guy is high, again.
Another evidence that the new generation xbox is coming sooner than what is expected!After showing the latest version of UE tech this week and making tthe claim that will be how next generation games will look,the proximity Epic haves with M$ and now this!Assume?!
Kinect 2 should be packaged with every Xbox 720
more like incorporated into the box then as a separate piece of hardware.
If Kinect is a big part of the next Xbox (and it most likely will be), I think people should just give up on Microsoft and look elsewhere. That is unless they (MS) can prove it is a serious control scheme that can compete with what works best, with the same levels of accuracy and responsiveness, and without any forced limitations on game design.
kinect 2 should come with a controller this time so it actually can do hardcore games this time around, it should be able to do at least 60fps and have a much higher resolution, then i may be intrested, as for kinect 1, meh ill stick to my move
