Ryse is not a only-Kinect title

Phil Spencer about Ryse: "Idea right now is that you play with both controller and Kinect". (E3, Kinect, Ryse: Son of Rome, Xbox 360)

Well...This game has jumped straight onto my radar...terrible shame I don't have Kinect..but how will this work? Will I be waving my arms around with a 360 joypad? My joypad and Tv wouldn't last very long

Dodgy translation, but seems you can play normally with a controller, or play it with kinect.

why didnt they show that ??
they showed a guy jumping around
EarthLover  +   1705d ago | Well said
@captain obvious

They showed a guy jumping around because everyone said Kinect had no hardcore games, by showing this hardcore game with Kinect, they were attempting to give those whiners what they wanted, Kinect support in hardcore games.

Microsoft cant win because no matter what they do, people whine, just like you are doing now.
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   1705d ago
If this game was supposed to be hardcore with a controller, what they actually showed at E3 was Kinect transforming a FPS Hack'n'slash game into an on-rails arm flapping fest.

Trying to prove Kinect to hardcores? Nice work... -.-’

Wow, dude. That makes NO sense. If they guide you to the areas, it is on rails. What you're trying to say is that roller coasters are semi-railed because you can look at anything while the ride guides you to an area. It makes no sense.

The game didn't excite me at all, if it turns out to be halfway decent i'll pick it up when it drops to about $20 used.
TheDareDevil  +   1705d ago
If this is true, then I'm elated.
One of my most anticipated games!!!

Checked out,, and its listed as this:
Platform: Kinect.

kingdoms  +   1705d ago is often wrong or not in the loop with developers. Everybody thought it was a kinect only game until Microsoft explained their plans after the press. They showed kinect gameplay because that was the theme of their show like PS Vita and Wii-U. Rise is probably a hybrid or has kinect specific mission/ gameplay like forza has an arcade kinect mode.

Why do ps3 fans care so much about the 360? We don't care about ps3. will update the info as they always do when this happens. Making an issue of this doesn't override what Microsoft game studios and crytek has said LOL

"Why do ps3 fans care so much about the 360? We don't care about ps3."

I think you mean PS3 fanboys (just like 360 fanboys) because not all of them are haters.
OT:Anyways this is good to hear because we may just get two different experiences out of the box. I'm just waiting for that kinect hybrid game that does it right and hopefully Ryse will be it.

well,not on the "Kinect for Xbox 360 Games" list
SuperLupe  +   1705d ago
Yeah but still it wont be what it could have been otherwise it'll be better without Kinect whereras the game has been made to push Kinect.

Id rather play a on-rails Ryse with Kinect than without, otherwise whats the use ? If I have to play an on-rails xbox game might as well play it in an innovative way.
YodaCracker  +   1705d ago
What it could have been? I'm sure it was originally intended as a Kinect game and it would not exist otherwise. It was never intended to be anything else.
-Alpha  +   1705d ago
This is what I heard as well, but the fact that they showed it with Kinect only raises more questions.

I also dont know how they would work a title that would work with both Kinect and a controller like that. Is it on rails on Kinect and free moving on controllers? How exactly would that work?

What a fail!
Facepalm microsoft, facepalm. Why would you debut a AAA title in that manner? All the hype I had for this game died down cause I thought it was Kinect only. Poor poor poor show. Next up, Fable The Journey.
Well then, thats another 360 exclusive confirmed
beast242tru  +   1705d ago
this is mabe the onli game from microsoft E3 that i was lik hmmm i wudnt mind trying that with kinect but the game itself looks realli nice

else interest rate remain the same
NoobJobz  +   1705d ago
Good. From the E3 demo, it seemed it was going to be Kinect only. I'm glad it is optional. I don't mind games that have Kinect as an option. You don't have to use it but you can. The Kinect only games have been pretty bad.
YodaCracker  +   1705d ago
I'm pretty sure the game will require Kinect, but will be played with both the standard controller and Kinect at the same time for an immersive experience. Just because you will be using the controller, it does not mean the game will not still require Kinect.
BlueTemplar  +   1705d ago
Even if using a controller is an option, surely the fact that it CAN be played entirely with kinect means its going to be an on-rails experience?

Think i'll give it a miss

You obviously haven't seen Rise Of Nightmares or Fable The Journey then? Both those games are on Kinect and not on rails.

Microsoft might have won a few more people over at E3 had they demoed the game and said it could be played with a controller or Kinect.

Ladies and gentlemen there is a new ip.
FlashXIII  +   1704d ago
Explain to me how kinect games work which aren't on rails? Maybe I missed something in my facepalm but you can't actively control the movement of characters using kinect without the use of some form of controller. If microsoft have came up with a way around this, clever them but as it stands I just can't see people having freedom of movement with the whole "you are the controller" gimmick.
maddfoxx  +   1704d ago
I saw the demo for Rise of Nightmares. I was impressed that it wasn't on rails, but from the looks of things the player had a hard time controlling walking and there were a ton of latency issues.

As for Fable, the demo shown at E3 was on rails "to show off spell casting". Peter Molyneux claims that the final product wont be on rails, but this guy says a lot of. . . stuff.

@ FlashXIII. Search for a demo of Rise of Nightmares on gametrailers. The controls for moving are shown on screen.

Doesn't require Kinect well thats a relief this game got me excited again.
B1663r  +   1705d ago

You mad?

Also, I have seen no indication that this game is on rails other than SDF personal who have been throwing that around as a pejorative...
kingdoms  +   1705d ago
They're a mess alright. First they were upset it was a kinect only title now they hope and wish it is kinect only and they don't even own the console yet keep giving their worthless opinions.

The game would be popular even it was kinect only with the 12 to 14 million owners and would win over lots of core gamers with the mature gameplay and crytek quality.

PS3 trolls are the ones wishing it was kinect only. Us xbox users just want a proper new core ip which we all were excited for. I hope it turns out to be a true core exclusive I really do but after what I seen at E3, I'm skeptical. This sort of info should have been told in the conference tbh, they could have saved themselves from the backlash with simple announcements like this.
RyuDrinksTheDew  +   1705d ago
whew, super glad about that, now im interested again.

i had pushed this game out of my radar.

This game will support Xbox Live, Microsoft said that in 2010 when they announced it...

So it wont be on rails for sure.
Rikan  +   1705d ago
This game looks fun; makes me want to get a kinect. I'm just hoping there are not translation issues.

Thank the gods. Ryse is back on my radar.
DevilishSix  +   1705d ago
to know this is basicly made for Kinect alot of gamers were hoping this would be a game like God of War, but when I heard it was for Kinect my heart broke just alittle. Meh to this title, no longer interested with or without Kinect.

Not interested in a Gladiator movie rip off game in first person.

It was never MADE for kinect. It was MADE for kinect support. So if you want to use a controller you can do so :/
DevilishSix  +   1704d ago
regardless, the title has still lost my interest, moving on.

It would have been terrible if it was a Kinect only title, I knew crytek wouldn't create a Kinect only action game.

Maybe they could call it the XPower Pad!
