Given how things are now a days, actually had to read the article to make sure the guy wasn't giving it some reversed compliment.

@Feckles:
As far as I know its only being used for head tracking. Pretty sure GT5 has it too through the PSeye for what its worth.

No, he really doesn't think it works for driving games. Will it work for Forza 4?

but what if microsoft make a drag racing game, then it would work. just need to pull the chute, right?

It can be used for stearing as well. They have a lot of assistance added when you do though(autobraking and acceleration as well as an auto crash reset) There was a video floating around N4G the other day

Found it:

What type of gameplay is Kinect actually good at?

I use the Move to pwn in Killzone 3.

Kinect and that new steering wheel they made are pretty useless for driving games imo.

"Driver is daft for video games"

That doesn't even make sense, but anyway why are you getting offended? What he's saying is true Kinect is daft for driving games.

It makes perfect sense, guy. Daft is slang, slang for 'bad' or 'not quite okay' or even 'stupid'. So saying that Driver is daft for video games is an opinion clearly offering the insight that the Driver franchise is total shit, and the guy that develops the shit comes off as a dick hole here.
xtreampro_REVENGE!  +   1386d ago
Driver can't be stupid or daft FOR video games, that makes absolutely no sense.
jophus  +   1385d ago
Certainly it can, same as any other crap franchise that brings down the industry as a whole.

LMFAO @ jophus for getting Butt-Hurt!!!!
Driver was the first 3D Free-Roam driving game ever made!! Just because Kinect is the biggest shit ever produced for the game industry, (Hints.. No "REAL" games) you know, for "REAL" gamers!!! LMFAO, thats why your clicking an article to talk shit about a guy that is just being honest... Dont get mad because you bought the garbage that is Kinect!! Driver: San Francisco will be "EPIC".. So stop hating and go play Barbies Adventure.. Exclusive to the Xbox360/Kinect!!!
