360 Magazine: At E3 2010, Project Natal was at last unveiled as Kinect. But has Microsoft delivered on the promises it made, and just who was the motion-control revolution for?
glad i sold mine
What about Child Of Eden though? Don't you want to play that? I know it's only 'one' game though.
not much, don't like it
That is coming to PS3 also, so he could still play, provided he has Move.
child of eden is a multiplat
Although are the journalist sites are really excited for Child of Eden, it should be a 1200 MS points arcade game. I can't believe people will be willing to pay full price for that. I can't imagine playing that for more than hour after I'm over the, "cool it works" part. Do you but, it's really not my type of game, holding my hand over various geometric shapes to psychedelic colours ain't my thing. I'd get bored of that type of gameplay really fast.
My girlfriend loves the living daylight out of Kinect...and I hate the living daylight out of it. Lol
Did not need this article to tell me that. Im not wasting hard earned cash on a camera, and kid games.
I support Kinect, a device that doesn't support me.
See but with Child of Eden, Steel Battalion and the new panzer dragoon game (Project Draco) they have the chance to change that. Hopefully at E3 they announce some kind of controller input with Kinect.
A 'controller input'? Doesn't that miss the point of Kinect?
I dont care if the initial advertisement was controller free gaming, keeping it that way would eventually kill the device and I am sure Microsoft is well aware of that fact.
But having controller assisted titles within less than a year of the things release? They've have been prompting it as a full alternative to physical controllers for twice the time. Edit: So you're missing the whole duplicitous point of introducing it as a new kind of controller , yet requiring the old controller before its fully established itself? That its unlikely that it will ever be fully realized as what it was promised to be with a half billion dollar ad campaign? I'm done.
Well if there are not controller assisted games it will die quickly.
Child of Eden=multiplat Steel Battalion = kinect optional panzer dragoon game= kinect only maybe sounds wonderful and if theres a controller with kinect whats going to happen to being the controller? makes it no better than anything else on the market
Your point? What I am trying to say it needs to do things the Wii and MOVE are doing. I LOVE the tech behind the Kinect but it needs a controller input.
Sorry but with all the amazing games coming out this year, are you seriously going to want to those games with limited controls instead? No one would really care about those games if they weren't for Kinect (unless it was another Panzer Dragoon RPG!). It's just desperation at this point, where anything get you excited because you have nothing of substance to really play.
It was always just a bit more than an Eyetoy with more marketing thrown into the mix.
Wow. There you go....
Child of Eden, Rise of Nightmares, Steel Batallion.
I tried kinect, I swear I can't understand how people support it. U have zero feedback its literally just waving arms in air. Children of eden will be good with kinect but I'd rather play that game with move tbh. But having said that I will buy kinect for my kids as soon as its £49.99
MS Said last year that when Kinect was released it was having the slogan you are the controller because they wanted to open it up to a new generation of 360 users but after the 1st batch of games were out we would start to see both full body tracking games with you as the controller and a 2nd batch of games that use Kinect and the controller which I am hoping MS will show off at this years E3 as Kinect has done its job with pulling in the casual gamers but now MS need to work on the core gamers to pickup the device and I think with games like forza 4,Child of Eden, Rise of Nightmares, Steel Batallion and Project Draco they maybe able to get the core gamers in on the Kinect hype too. But we will find this out at E3 I supect.
the selling point is (even if eye toy can also do the :) "you are the controler", everytime journalists said "move is more precise, more hardcore, etc", they answer "kinect : you don't need a controler" even if people are sheep, and accept lies and almost anything today, they probably can't use marketing to sell "kinect + controler", or worst for them, a move copy.
The problem with the eye toy to woek like Kinect dose as it need the right light to work in if its to dark or too light the eye toy cant pick you up and you also need a clear space behind you to play a game as the objects get in the way of what it shows you on the screen. Also depending on the game you play depends where the eye toy need to be put and the angle need to be changed and some games need you to twist the eye toy to zoom in like on eye pet. This is the biggest problem with the eye toy it is too messy to use where kinect works in more or less any lighting condition you only need to set it up once and you dont need a blank wall behind you for the game to work. I agree Kinect is a new version of the eye toy but it is a far better version of the eye toy. Kinect has been built on a look how easy it is to use the eye toy can not say this as of what I put above. I agree Move is More precise and at this moment in time can be used for some hard core games. As I said I am going to wait for E3 to see what MS show us as they have already talked about forza 4,Child of Eden, Rise of Nightmares, Steel Batallion and Project Draco having kinect support and they also said that there will be Kinect core games. If this is true I would expect to see them at E3 if we dont see them then we will all know what direction MS is going but I dont see MS spending so much on a device to bring in a new crowd and forgetting the gamers who have made the xbox name so big this gen and then not bringing anything out but a few fitness and dancing games out as the xbox name will not last long. They need to give the core gamers a reason to buy Kinect this could be the games I said above and they also need to bring out some new IP's for the new casual crowd that have picked up Kinect and keep them happy like Nintendo have done with the Wii.
yeah mine is collecting dust unfortunately. I got two moves today for my birthday so I will try that out too!
For kids? No way MEH!!!
Mine is collecting dust but I knew there would be a short waiting period when I bought it, who's the biggest fool? the one who was the early adopter who waited? or the one who got impatient sold it only to buy it again somewhere down the line, when a new console launches it is usually with one or more decent launch titles e.g. in this case Dance Central and Kinect Sports, then as with most consoles you have a waiting period, either way it's going to pick up the pace whether you like it or not.
Both are fools, both should have waited for it to prove it was worthy of a purchase, which it hasn't. Paid over $150 for mini-games, or over $200 bucks if you bought Kinect sports - for mini-games! Again, both are fools.
Kinect has nothing I want. Nothing.
Peter Moleneux's smoke and mirrors at work again.
