DP: Microsoft is developing a AAA first person shooter in an attempt to win over the core audience of Xbox 360.
Personally don't see how they could make a shooter of kinet without it being on rails... which wouldn't be great. How would you walk :S
This is how hacks do it: To walk forward, one foot is forward. To walk back, the same foot goes back. Same with side to side. Basically, you're gonna have numb feet xD
They shouldn't even bother wasting effort in replacing the controller with Kinect for FPS games, it's just not going to be as precise or responsive. Just continue to use the controller and find some innovative and USEFUL way of using Kinect in addition to the controller.
If they find a useful, easy and fun way to play an FPS on kinect, I say why not.
Tears of laughter on that one. Gotta love a booty scramble.
@TechnicalBS, they're not gonna find a simple and fun way to play action games on kinect alone...with an add-on yes, but without, it is just intrinsically not possible...if it was, all the interesting hacks would have showed us by now, and mainstream webcam fps and tps games would have been made years ago if it was in any way better, more fun or sellable (it isn't). isaygoodday!
Sorry but AAA and Kinect DO NOT go together. I'm all for the effort but Kinect is totally on RAILS and that my friend disqualifies the game as AAA. I sense more hype than substance on this one.
Definition of the term AAA please?
@JerryKurl AAA Title: 1. High Budget Title 2. Rating of 90 or higher 3. Fun Kinect doesn't do any of the 3. @Bnet343 and where do you see "AAA Move Shooter comming soon" at? Oh You don't? Thank You.
Niether does Move, so they're both on the same boat going by that little list you just made up lol.
Deflection is another way of avoiding depression. And for the record: Heavy Rain is a AAA title with full Move integration. Killzone 3 is a AAA title with full Move integration. I know some of you will say "But it wasn't made for the Move ONLY!" To that I say: You don't need to touch a normal controller to play either game. It is a Move only game if you only have a Move.
Thank you TreMillz. You do know it was a rhetorical question? I wanted to bring out your inner fanboy and i succeeded. Btw, have you tried Kinect? Reply without lying if that's even possible. Question for the mods. How the hell is Instabull allowed to write trolling comments on what seems like a daily basis without getting banned?
I lol'd XD
I don't get how they haven't done Halo Wars 2 with Kinect yet. I mean, it's pretty damn obvious it would work. Use your fingers to control your units and issue commands (could use voice like EndWar or another method). Hell, it might be able to surpass M+KB if you got fast hands (or fingers?) and it's accurate enough.
AAA and kinect are words that don't play nice together.
Halo 4 kinect confirmed. @logicwins We all know Halo is the only shot to get the "hardcore" audience interested in Kinect.
Nope, this is a Canadian studio called Zipline studios not 343. On rails is likely though
Maybe, but I can't imagine playing Halo with ONLY Kinect. At best what they can do is mix Kinect with traditional 360 controls IMO. "We all know Halo is the only shot to get the "hardcore" audience interested in Kinect" True true
I'm all for Halo 4 but not Kinect.
that and maybe the next COD will be kinect compatible lol
Best news out of all of this: a new first party studio for Microsoft! Welcome to the team Zipline Studios. And btw... the listing said a game using Kinect, not exclusively Kinect. It could be a hybrid like how Killzone has Move support.
If this happens microsoft will be the first one out of the games industry out of the big three!
This is good news. I don't think it's Halo in any way however, as 343 handles that. I think a Halo on Kinect might come out sometime, but I tend to think a Halo Wars 2 would work better on Kinect.
i Dont think there can be a AAA kinect shooter Take out the middle word The middle word is either A optional or B) an on rails shooter
a AAA kid/family shooter? this is long of overdued, ps3 can use move kz3 and socom. 360 can use kinect for um um family games, taking the nintendo approach isn't bad but hell even nintendo got some hardcore shooters, even if they all aren't good/great its better than nothing.
I highly doubt it will be a AAA shooter.
..but really, how would you walk on kinect? :)
put it on the floor and step on it. "You to to put one foot in front of the other" :)
As I've said if an AAA Kinect shootter was possible we would of had it when Kinect launced, since all they said, when Kinect was first revealed as Natal, that it would focus on core and casual audiences. By the way did they open up or purchase a studio just for this AAA Kinect shooter. Wouldn't core fans rather have a studio opened for a AAA exclusive game that uses the stardard controler
Kinect controller announcement at E3???.
I have my fingers crossed, if they would just swallow some pride they could make a genuinely good control scheme out of this.
Well I know Forza 4 will use the controller and Kinect for Head Tracking. So we will see.
with buttons! :)
There are clues for this, besides this announcement. See: http://123kinect.com/xbox-k...
What? Telling people they'll have to pay $40 to $50 - if not more - for an additional specific-use controller when they've already shelled out $150 for Kinect to play some Kinect-only titles when they already had a regular in the first flipping place. *facepalm*
I remember EVERYBODY saying "OMG it's gonna be amazing, no controllers, all motion gaming". Now add a controller or accessory, it's just a Wii or Move. Couldn't agree more with you. I can only imagine if someone doesn't have Kinect and they want to play this "new shooter". $150 for Kinect, $40-$50 for controller/accessory (special cable for $30 to connect to 360 lol) and then the game for, let's say $50 because that's what most Kinect games go for. POSSIBLY $250 to play this game. Wow.
How about we just wait and see what they can come up with before claiming its impossible.
Phew Phew.....Phew phew!
Derp derp derp, I foresee rails and more rails.
Like the Uncharted games?
Hopefully you can play it in a more convenient way. You know, with a controller.
As long as I can use my controller with Kinect then ok, because I'm not going to wait 2secs for it to try to pick up my hand so I can shoot someone.
all i want is to play a game with both kinect and controller. simple things like reaching out to opens a door, lob a grenade etc just simple gestures with voice cammand will do it for me..
You know, I just recently tried out Kinect since my friend had it, and I bought it the very next day. It's damn fun, impressively accurate, and I was having so much fun, I didn't even mind looking like a complete loser. I won't pass judgment on this until I see what it actually will be. Honestly, after seeing how Kinect works, if they're creative about it, I think they could figure out a clever way to have it all work. Either way, I have Child of Eden to look forward to.
Im still waiting for them to apologise & get on their knees & bow for 5 minutes. I mean why cant they just tell us the truth why their hardware dies even to this day. I just want them to admit, they rushed the 360 launch to early knowing it wasnt ready. No wonder bin ladin bought a ps3 lol. Jokes aside. Hope this isnt a waste of money they could have just used to create a new IP for its core base without kinect.
pew pew pew
My comment got removed as "trolling" for saying that. I thought it was just a lighthearted joke, but someone took offense. Good luck :)
well that's what you get for trying to joke on a serious site like this one!
Here, have a bubble, it's hard to keep them these days...
lol I saw that your comment was "trolling" yet there are probably 4 or 5 others that said it. Ohhh N4G.
Lol forget walking, how about trying to shoot? Kinect doesn't recognised intricate movements such as small finger movements. You'd have to shake violently for it to recognise your shooting... or have another separate action which will translate to shooting a gun in the game. It wont look natural or realistic as "You are (supposed to be) the Controller". ¬¬
Definetely going to release a controller for kinect. It could be actually quite good with a controller but without one I don't see how it's possible.
I think this may be a Kinect/controller hybrid.
aww give me a break....
Lets hope they make it for the 360 with Kinect support...but I doubt that will happen(Because they wanna draw the core 360 crowd to puchase a Kinect).
OK...so I think like most I have a hard time seeing a "Kinect Only Hardcore Shooter". That said, I wont say it can't be done...but I am skeptical to say the least. What I think is completely unknown is how Kinect will be used in said shooter. Is it a hybrid control scheme? That makes the most sense to me ...and could be very good use of Kinect depending on what is done. So jury really is out until we actually learn the gameplay mechanics of this game and how Kinect is used.
Insecurity is widely spread after Kinect raped PS Move left and right. Looking forward to this title.
we will see..
KINECT is Epic FAIL!, I will never buy any kinect game, I will only use a Controller or Mouse and Keyboard for my gaming Experience, the Media/Microsoft/INDUSTRY is wasting its time pushing this TECH, its all over but the Singing folks, dead on arrival, the mind control doesn't work on me suckas.
What's wrong with regular controls and motion controls co-existing? I just bought a Kinect, and play Kinect Adventures and Dance Central on it - and have a blast doing it. It really surprised me with how awesome it is. & then I can pull out a controller and play whatever other game I would like to. I'm currently playing through Portal 2. It doesn't have to be one or the other. The world isn't black or white, friend. I'll never ever give up my controller / mouse & keyboard for serious gaming, but Kinect is damn fun and gives me a whole new way to play. What's so bad about that?
Doubt it will be AAA, not with Kinect
Hope it goes ok, i wouldnt mind using a controller in conjunction with kinect tho, for a trigger if nothing else. Kinect for pointing and melee attacks and maybe some other stuff. Walking/running could go either way, either button or foot forward would be fine. I guess foot forward is more immersive tho (wide stance = run?)
