Microsoft has had considerable success chasing the casual gamers with Kinect, but what might the future bring for the next iteration of the sensor? Something totally different, according to one analyst.
How about this gen?
Meh..who cares? There are TONS of core games coming out on the PS3,360, and PC this year. I think playing those games would be more fun than whining about Kinect's lack of core games on an Internet forum.
but Microsoft said that this generation was aimed at core audiences as well as casual was that a lie? (/sarcasm, of course it was)
they only make predictions based on their opinions. If anything the next generation of kinect "games" will be aimed at the core. Not so much a next gen kinect. The current kinect camera is a very good system. We can see what creative minds can do with it on a diverse platform like the PC. The 360 is what is holding back the potential of the unit. Not the games or the developers. The next xbox will likely have kinect support built in and will be a platform that core developers are wanting (as well as core gamers). MS said first and foremost that there will be core games made for kinect. Does that mean only on xbox 360??? the amount of core support is growing but the real display of affection will likely happen when the next xbox arrives.
If he bought one under the impression it would be supported, I think he has a right to bitch about it not having games. MS has no problem bragging about the number of units it sold, so there is nothing wrong with an expectant consumer who gave them something to brag about looking for justification for his purchase.
You need buttons or else it's pointless.
I dont give a crap. They can keep Kinect. I like my button mashing!
Halo and Gears Kinect confirmed.
Wait a second?
I don't want to hear about the next kinect, I just got this one a few months ago - a lot more support for this one would be nice. Right now it's like my Wii, sitting there with a light on it.
sure it will............... theres no frickin games for it now aside from casual horse crap. And nintendo is going pure hardcore again next gen. Its going to leave casual gimmicks like this in the dust
...and they're gonna do it by... get this... using a controller as part of the setup, to add more... you know... control. REVOLUTIONARY!!!
so this one was a $150 test to see if people would actually buy it? LMFAO
Can't wait for this Kinect game. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Yeah core games on Kinect /s people wake up Kinect will never be for the core gamer lol no controller hands free bs for on the rails experiences. If you ask me Kinect is a terrible product that does absolutely nothing new we seen this all before its a enhanced eye toy. This sucks to because microsoft abandoned there true fanbase Gears 3 looks awesome but then what. Case an point reason I sold 360 cause 360=Kinect now oh an Halo 4 or Halo remake. Still most of microsoft will be for there p.o.s fastest selling consumer electronic device.
Kinect isn't gonna work with hardcore games unless they add a controller.
