Death by motion-control or Xbox of delights? Our verdict.
Where the heck was steel battalion heavy armour? This article didn't know weather to hate or love kinect. It hates kinect usage in games but praises it's use. I agree with kinect usage in games for disabled gamers. I have recommend kinect to fellow disabled veterans who find it hard to use game controllers but can't stop trying to play games. That is the perfect feature of kinect and it's versatility for all gamers.
I hated most of it and im a 360 guy smh
Yeah, I really can't imagine playing all these Kinect games for more than 30min-an hour. Thank god they threw us a bone with Halo 4/remake though.
You know, I would give all of this Kinect Voice input a chance if you didn't have to shout loud and clear at ur TV every single time to give a command in a game. You would have to play in almost silence for it to pick you up accurately. I just can't see this happening through the ENTIRE game of ME! Like anyone will give that voice input more than 30 min. I think they should enable headsets to work with Kinect, so you could have audio on in the game background and wouldn't have to shout at your TV for hours...
I've never had a problem with the voice commands on Kinect. It works better than any other voice command devise I’ve ever used. I don't think I’ve ever had to say anything twice, and I have to kids running around the house. I don't know why you are saying you have to shout, you don't. I just give a command in a normal tone and it works right away. Have you ever used it? Or are you just going by what people on here say? If you have to yell at your Kinect I would return it because it’s not working right. OT: I think the voice commands for core games is an awesome use for Kinect. I don’t even use my headset anymore the mic in Kinect is bad ass IMHO.
there was HIGH's????
Nope. No highs at all.
had to be high to enjoy that... (just a lame joke, drugs are bad for you)
Drunk and on meth. Not even ICE T could save a that hoe.
poor ice t xD "hord mord"
Halo 4? well at least i think someone was excited to see another entry in the main series
lol!. What did you guys expect?. MS did say they were focusing on Kinetic and thats what they did.
and they didn't even do that well. What happened to steel battalion, the dragon game, rise of the nightmare(which comes out in a week) etc. no instead they show disneyland and a broken mintue long star wars game. BTW kinectic was a game on the eyetoy.
really lame conference, seriously why show an elmo game at e3, nothing against that game or Tim S but I don't think people at e3 or people watching the live feeds are going to care about it. Talk about the wrong target audience. Almost every second of that conference could be made into hilarious gifs, its like it was intentional.
http://www.youtube.com/watc... "Oh no captain hook" "Were having so much fun" Thanks Disney kids for making me hate Kinect even more. Watch from 54-end
Yeah its lame and goofy (no pun intended), but my 7 year old wont be playing Gears of War III (I will).
I'm looking forward to the 3rd New Xbox Eperience, Halo CE Anniversary, and Halo 4
That was rather average the kinect stuff just dragged it down for me. It started out good though. However come on Microsoft stop forcing Kinect down everyones throat. Look at Star wars that was a lag fest. I can't believe the audience cheered after its showing. So much lag that it ends up looking scripted. I was really looking forward to Forza 4 but they didnt show anything but a video which they claim was real time. I really wanted to see more Microsoft exclusives to keep the heat on Sony so they intern step it up even more. Oh yeah Halo 4 CG trailer lets see how many get into a frenzy for a CG trailer like they did for Halo 3. All in all a very average showing by the Redmond boys.
Are not shoving anything down anyone's throat. They sold 8 million Kinect's in 60 days and people want games to play on it, and that's what they gave you. Like it or not, there are at least now 10 million Kinect owners who will be pleased about the show. I understand all the so called hardcore gamers, but there will still be all the usual EA Sports titles and Shooters like B3 & MW3, then Forza 4 and don't forget Gears 3 so there's something for everyone. But as for Kinect, they ain't gonna give up on all those customers in the first year are they.
There was some Kinect titles shown we are probably going to get. Dance Central 2 looked really good and my family will like the "true" two player mode. The Roman fighting game could be good, but I'll read a review first. If the control is as bad as those Move/Kinect fighting games last year...no thanks.Minecraft? Yes please. Some of the "hybrid" game's like Forza may be cool.
" Like it or not, there are at least now 10 million Kinect owners who will be pleased about the show." This is such stupid reasoning. Because there are 10 million kinects out there, they will all be happy? That assumes that: 1. All 10 million use Kinect 2. All 10 million like Kinect I guarantee you there will be a LOT of people who don't use or like Kinect.
iistuii: Then where are the exclusives? What if some people don't care about those games or Kinect? Microsoft still hasn't given me a reason to invest in a 360.
Exactly, well said marshow. So after Gears/Forza this holiday, there is not going to be any core exclusives until holiday 2012? WTF? So they're basically saying "if you don't want our half baked technology, we have nothing for you". Kinect just is not for me and its becoming a problem. Ryse formerly known as Kingdoms was the one exclusive that could have saved it all for me and the moment it was revealed as a Kinect game I cringed. If I could get my head around sony's terrible controller and security problems, I would consider a PS3 at this point. Microsoft just keeps pissing on us. And what if Halo 4 has Kinect integration? That would kill it for me.
Listen it's nearly 6 years old and if you haven't invested in one by now, you never will. And exclusives aren't everything, in fact the most anticipated games this year are multi format B3 for one.
iistuii: I want exclusives please. I can easily get multiplatform games on the PS3. This isn't 2007 anymore.
@ Marsh, Dude please don't come here and pretend you would ever get a 360. Please, all you PS3 fanatics know that nothing MS could do would ever please you. You only like Sony, and we all get it. All ya'll do is bash anything the competition does, while holding Sony’s nuts in your mouth. LOL, ya'll can justify Sony losing all that personal info, the slow start this gen, the outrageous launch price, PSN being down for 3 weeks, etc., etc., etc., but you can't find 1 reason to get a 360? If you don't have one there are 100's of reasons to get one. In case you didn't know, there are more exclusives out on the 360, and a bigger game library period. If you've never owned on there are more games out for the 360 than the PS3, so don't come here acting like you're really waiting for MS to show something before you buy one, because that’s bullshit and you know it. You are here for the same reason the hoards of other PS3 trolls are, to bash MS to make your precious "TOY" look better. I laugh at people like you, LOL. You make me so happy I own a 360, PS3, Wii, PSP, DS, and 3DS (not to mention the older systems I have) so I don't have to come N4G to bash other systems because I can't play what’s on the other systems. Please don't tell me you don't care what's on the other systems either, because if you didn't care you wouldn't have to come in the 360 section to bash it. Why don't you save up your money and get one, or just stop trolling in the 360 section to bash, because you just make yourself look like a jealous child. I mean all the PS3 and 360 trolls too, but right now I am directing this more towards the PS3 type due to the responses in the article.
Good job generalizing IMP. Just because you have all the consoles, doesn't make you any less of an ignorant person. I like how I receive disagrees and can't be proven wrong. It makes me smile. :)
Other than the GRFS showcase, the kinect show was rather boring...but I wonder how much 'new & innovative' gameplay Sony Move will show?? I expect another lame display of casual games but we'll see.
That may happen but at least they're balancing core and casual at the same time.
When is all the new stuff off online, I thought we were going to see it right after the MS conference?
the high point was the peter pan game, i could probably play that for like 10 mins, the rest i dont think i would make it 5 mins
they treat us like fools. Last year we gave them the benefit of the doubt, but Microsoft just made it clear they are going full retard on us. 95% Casual, why show this at the E3 where the core public comes that made this industry big? Do it at some local circus or walmart where u will get ur designated target audience. This is a disgrace, i will not be surprised if the core public will turn their backs on Microsoft now. Halo CE remake in HD is welcome and Halo 4 too, but forcing developers to mess with core title we love and mixing core with casual is a step to far, if they kept Kinect seperate it would be less catastrophic as it is now..so sad for Microsoft, it's not THE reality, it's Microsoft's reality, let em keep it. I say no controller, no good core games, no Microsoft.
Spot on CVG. Three E3's in a row now where Microsoft has had a chance to make it up to the core gamers for their costly Kinect venture, and yet again they have failed us. Its hard for me to accept that the casual market is the money market. Its also hard to think that if Microsoft just put half the money into core games development that they put into Kinect, that they would have great New IP's that could sell millions. Now there really isnt a console on the market for me. When the Xbox 3 releases with Kinect 2.0 and Kinectiavitarimals 7 i'll pick it up for my niece and say goodbye to a lifelong passion for gaming. At least I get to enjoy the stellar third party lineup that we have this year.
there goes another year of nothing
Really makes me glad I sold my 360 a month ago... Really not much of a point paying for unused live months...
Everything about Xbox conference was expected. This was like a nightmare, I was so afraid of this happening and it did. I was hoping there would be surprises but really there wasn't sadly :/ Well, I'm glad they announced Halo 4 and I still have Gears to look forward to. On top of that all those other multi-plat games like MGS Rising, Dead Island, Skyrim, BF3, RE.
I for one enjoyed the Kinect stuff. I like my hardcore game as well, but it will be nice to try some hardcore titles with the Kinect to see if they are on the right page. Star Wars Kinect didn't look good though. Halo 4 ftw!
