OXM UK: "Epic Games wants to play a significant role in the next wave of Kinect development, and regards Unreal Engine 3 as a platform for game types besides meaty action releases."
Gears of War: Exile, anybody?
I can tell by the comments that no one actually read the article, which means the comment section is filled with troll material.
thats cause in a nutshell, its the same BS, and peeps are hip to the nonsense. its called catching on to the scam....but i also can tell by your comment that TROLL is used for anything you disagree with, great! more labels, just what we all need, thanks
^^^^ Case and point, lol. Read the article, don't be a simpleton.
Dear Microsoft, please stop paying developers to feign excitement for flawed technology and instead invest it in good games. Now unfaithfully yours, xbox core gamer
Just because you don't like Kinect, doesn't mean others don't. Why all the hate? If you like it, buy it... if not, then STFU and go play other games (multiplatform games :) ) By the sales numbers of Kinect... Microsoft doesn't have to pay developers to feign excitement. Developers see another way of making money. If i was a developer i would be investing in Kinect games.
Who said I don't like Kinect? I bought it Saturday and think the technology is good albeit flawed. It has potential as a games peripheral for "different" times of games. But I don't want the last few remaining core developers for the xbox releasing kinect stuff. If I was a developer I'd be treading extremely cautiously with Kinect. The response to the new Fable and Ryse has been far too mixed to be jumping onto the kinect bandwagon. Yes Kinect has sold well but have the games been selling as many? Not to mention I wonder how many of those 11m or whatever number it's at now can actually even play Kinect regularly due to the space requirements.
Work in a Gamestop, for your information nobody buys Kinect games. None of our actual gamers bother with it (the smart ones anyway). All people bought last Xmas was Kinect and the Dance game.
@ andrewsqual I want to play too. OK, ready, set, here we go. "I work at a GameStop and Kinect sells more than any other Item in the store. Everyone buys it, and the games that go with it as well. Therefore Kinect is, simply put, the bees knees everywhere else in the world, because it sales at my store." See the store I work at represents the world, not the store you work at. My fact is better than yours. For YOUR information.
@ Flash.. Why 'feign' that you bought Kinect on Saturday..then troll an article today?...makes a lot of sense.. I love seeing the hypocrisy when it comes to Kinect.. Good tech..but has no core games.. When core games get announced..then it's..I don't want core games for Kinect Who cares what people are saying about Fable and Ryse right now..The games won't be released until at least next fall..over a year from now. If Lionhead and Crytek pull off some amazing experiences and sell successfully then the naysayers will be singing a completely different tune. Your STILL talking about the space requirements, but now there is a device to reduce the requirements even further. Still the interesting part is even Move's pack-in game recommended more room than the Kinect minimum to play, but nobody talked about it. If Micrsoft plays it's cards right Kinect could double their install base by next holiday. This times well with the next wave of games Mass Effect 3 Ghost Recon & all future Clancy titles (read: Rainbow Six) EA will use Kinect for all of next years' huge sports title..Madden, Fifa, and Tiger Woods The Japanese wave kicks in with Rise of the nighmares, Panzer Dragoon, and Steel Batallion And now Epic may jump into the fray with Gears of War Exile..why wouldnt Epic be excited to be at the forefront of Kinect? Evil
In the North East of England they are selling Kinect games for 4 pounds or less in some Game shops, No one is buying them
Microsoft do what Nintendo would never do and thats pay these developers stupid money so they talk up there devices ive played Kinect and its not reliable so what ever Valve/EA/DARKSIDERS DEV/UBISOFT/ACTIVISION HAVE all said the wiiu control interface adds alot more to coregames than Kinect or move could ever do
You have an odd way of writing and some punctuation mite help. But basically I agree, although the Wii-U tacpad is a different genera of controller to Kinect and Move.
When the games aren't on rails, then we'll talk.
Wow these kinect love affair articles are going hardbody with this stuff huh?
Geez, quit fellating Microsoft already,you like Kinect, we get it.
Microsoft: Here, take our money. Dev studios: We love Kinect! Yeah, no.
Imagine if gears used it in a limited way. Like the face punching animations. You could actually punch the guy, and he would know your doing it and it would add to the humiliation. It could flash up on the screen that you were killed by a Kinect player. You could even alter the rhythm of the punches and make it sound like the drum beat at the beginning of Queens We will Rock you. Or rather than a punch you could make a slapping motion which would be even funnier.
>Next Generation >Kinect Choose one.
Did u know PS4 is going to have same power as ps3 and add kinect like device and will be targeted at casuals and women WiiU is targeted towards mainly hardcore and also casual and is alot more powerful than ps3 Valves words.
Even Nintendo is doing better than MS in terms of exclusive games... F*ck this Kinect crap, give us exclusives.
Remember though cliffy b said only the fanboys hate kinect, and M$ said core gamers love kinect haha. Well from this core gamer to you M$, and cliify b I say blow it out your you know what because us core gamers (85% of the sane ones) really don't care about kinect and just want you to use ur money on better things like creating studios to create new interesting IPs. While cliffy please don't venture down the dark path of crappy game making with kinect.
lol, well spoken bro, lol, but im sure those N4G corporate cock riders will disagree , and then label you a TROLL for not agreeing with them.
Why is this article in the PC section?
Of course Epic would love to be a big part of the next wave of Kinect games.....they want more Unreal engine licensees
^100% truth its all about profit
Child of Eden entered the UK chart(the only other place where 360 dominates the HD consoles outside of the US)at 35.This means it was probably in the 100s for sales. The reason people "troll"Kinect is not just because it doesn't work very but that the whole concept is flawed as a control scheme,when the novelty wears off. Just ask any Eyetoy player. Bottom line is all these distractions take away from hardcore games and budgets so we get less so some 12 year old little sister can dance.
