Sony Move‘s creator, Dr. Richard Marks, gives his thoughts on Xbox Kinect.
@N4GTFO haha bubble
You gave bubbles to some one who has nothing to do but troll 360 articles - great job.
It's a shame he didn't reach the same success with his Wii thingy. Nice of him to acknowledge the greatness of Kinect though.
. Mr Marks is still employed? After telling everyone that Kinect wasn't going to work or sell I thought he would be looking for a new job by now. Gotta feel sorry for this chap, he really screwed up. He can't help himself with the back handed compliments, can he. Maybe he should buy a copy of the Guinness book of world records. Kinect is in there for NOT listening to this flawed individual.
Why wouldnt he be employed? Do you realize Mr Mark had the tech before the Wii? I like how you fanboys sound so ignorant.
Success means good argument again? I hope you love Titanic,Celine Dion and Coronation st? They are successful too and a bunch of arse. I hope you bought a Wii and Carnival Games? Richard Marks has done more for motion gaming than any other individual. Kinect may not exist without him and maybe even Wii.I know it's hard to be accurate about statements like that but he did most of the core tech first on PS2.
Hopefully by now they realize that MS could take a dump in a paper bag, light it on fire, and if it is marketed correctly, it will sell. "OMG you can jump up and down on top of it, it's the coolest" Heh, I've never tried the product and I'm not really bashing it. I do have a lot of respect for their marketing and I have learned from it. What is Sony doing though? Maybe they have some kind of territorial agreement with MS.
IMO, people that hate Kinect or motion controlled gaming are really closed minded people. People say, it will treating core games but i don't see it happening. In fact, i even see more core games dropping this year than i have seen so far this gen. We have sequels to excellent games like Mass Effect, Uncharted, Infamous, Forza, Gears of War, Assasins Creed etc all coming out and new IP's in Rage, Homefront, Brink, Kingdoms etc all in 2011. My sis was in the UK a month ago for a 10day holiday. She walks in to GAME store with me, sees kinect, tries it out and buys it immediately with dance Central and Your Shape fitness evolved. A month on, she plays your shape fitness 3-4 times a week to stay in shape and plays DC whenever her friends are around. Now this is a girl that has hated my gaming addiction since we were kids and all of a sudden, she is now an avid gamer, recently purchasing Kinect Sports online to add to her collection. That IMO, makes me proud of the wide reaching appeal that games have gotten this gen. No longer is my hobby frowned upon but now is sought after by people who traditionally would not touch a game console. 10 years ago, it was said that there was no room for 3 console makers, but because of the growth in the market, SOny,Microsoft and Nintendo are all doing well. And if its motion controls is the reason for that, then i very grateful for their existence.
There are some here who just sit and wait for a Kinect related article, to jump in there and say how auful it is. I say ignore them. I have had my battle with them before it was launched. I told them that it was going to be huge for M$ and 360. I predicted that it will bring a whole new set of casual buyer to the console and expand 360's market. Everything I said has proven true. I now have 2 bubble for stating the obvious and was even banded from the site. but dispite all of that, I get the satisfaction of proving that most here are closed minded and encapable of seeing pass their noses.
The interface controls are intuitive and done well. Games like Dance Central work very well and put the device in the forefront IMO. I would personally like to try a new nav controller accessory made to work with Kinect on a few core titles. Just because you're a PS3 fan doesn't mean that you have to hate Kinect or vice versa. I know I'll be de-bubbled for such talk but - oh hell, too late.
The kinect works wonders but when I see PSMove+KZ3, I wonder wheres our(yes i'm 360 owner) kinect+TripleAAA title, I'm tire of playing these family/sport kinect games I want something better(no offense to those who like those games)
i'm glad there's at least one person that can get past the fanboy/troll mentality and admit they want more from there system bubbles sir!
The competition gets a compliment from the competitor, and all of a sudden you get a article full of chest thumpers! Reminds me of the monkey enclosure at the zoo. Grow the H%ll up people.
Last I check the word hell is not a bad word and is alloewd on N4G. Even the bible has the word hell in it.
depends on context example "I wish you'd go to hell" not good VS. "jesus went to hell and took the keys from satan" is ok just as bitch and jackass are names for animals but used in a different context as referring to a human it becomes wrong.
The chest thumpers did not read the article it seems. So lets say what he said in the article: "I think it would be wrong if you thought that I didn’t think Kinect was good to have happened in our industry. That [technology] is my area too. I like to see all these new things occurring, and each of the companies should keep innovating in its own way and making things better." "The Kinect or a camera, just like that by itself, is good but for a fairly narrow set of experiences. It’s really good for dancing. There’s no way you could argue that. It’s great for dancing. But it’s not so good for maybe first person shooters or an RTS. Those kinds of things just don’t really make as much sense for that by itself. But some people, I think, think that maybe the hardcore gamer could play Kinect to play a real time strategy game in a new way that’s completely better than a game pad. I think that’s a hard thing to do because you’re losing a whole bunch of capability when you go to the interface. So how do you make it better? You could play a light version of an RTS for sure, but that would be different."
