R2D2 Xbox pleases fans doomed to disappointment by Kinect: Star Wars

Microsoft has announced a Star Wars themed Xbox 360. An R2-D2 console and C3PO controller is to be bundled with the not overly anticipated Kinect: Star Wars. Receiving some of the poorest previews for a long time, is the bundle designed as a plan b in case game only units fail to shift? The Inquirer seems to think so.

What's this? Someone evaluating a game even though they probably have never played it?

Wow, how original.

JellyJelly2252d ago

It's a Kinect game, therefore it has to be bad. /s

KingSlayer2252d ago

Point any of us in the direction of a good one. Don't need Kinect to dance. Don't need Kinect to run in place.

oohWii2252d ago

Haha, don't need haters on N4G but they're all over the place.

BTW FK "theinquirer" only a hater site would write this shite anyway...lol

"Point any of us in the direction of a good one."

Child of Eden
Kinect Sports
Shadows of the Damned

KingSlayer2251d ago

Oh Jelly. Child of Eden is "Best with Kinect" and can be played with a standard controller. Regarding Kinect Sports, I don't need Kinect to run in place (as I said earlier). Shadows of the Damned isn't a Kinect game. Besides that, with Kinect almost being 1yr old you were only able to list ONE full Kinect game. Doesn't that say something to you?

@ KingSlayer
#1 Jamie, you're next.

“Child of Eden is "Best with Kinect" and can be played with a standard controller.”
To this I say, “So what?”. Every game that you can use Move on can be played with a controller as well, does that automatically disqualify those games too? How many game are out that only use Move? 4, 5?

“Regarding Kinect Sports, I don't need Kinect to run in place (as I said earlier).”
Really, that’s your argument? If that’s the case, I don’t need any game for anything, I can just go do it in the real world. (besides shoot magic)
I don’t need a game to go shoot people, of course there are consequences, but my point still stand.

“Besides that, with Kinect almost being 1yr old you were only able to list ONE full Kinect game.”

Again what world are you living in? Child of Eden, Dance Central, Wipeout in the Zone, Kinect Adventures, Kinect Joy Ride, Kinect Sports, Kinectimals, Sonic Free Riders, UFC Trainer, Virtua Tennis 4, Fantastic Pets, EA Sports Active 2.0 and Your Shape: Fitness Evolved.
That’s more than 1 by my count, and there are a bunch more sh#ty games as well. Every one of those save 2 are rated 7 and up.

Just because you type something does not make it true. You’re trying way too hard man. You don’t like Kinect, Cool. Don’t f$%king buy it, but coming on here and trying to pass your OPINION as fact just makes you look pathetic.

It’s no wonder they say I’m the witty one, and your the fighter. You were the fighter until you lost that hand.

@TyrionL
Trying? Listen...I'm grown. I'm sharing my opinion and if my opinion so HAPPENS to be true so be it. Every game you listed is not a game I'm interested in (besides Child of Eden). I speaking from MY perspective, not some general "Let me try really hard to make this shitty peripheral that's added NOTHING to games, look good". That's your job.

As far as Move is concerned, that's the point of Move Sparky. Control options. Not looping you into some "You are the controller" fantasy. Besides that, there are plenty of Move only games geared towards the younger crowd, as well as, M rated games that can be controlled either way.

List all the games you want, they are mostly...not good. So I leave you with this - Don't need Kinect to dance. Don't need Kinect to run in place.

JellyJelly2251d ago (Edited 2251d ago )

@TyrionL - Now that Move failed we're not allowed to be excited about Kinect.

KingSlayer - "I don't need Kinect to run in place (as I said earlier)." I take it you don't play games to have fun?

"Besides that, with Kinect almost being 1yr old you were only able to list ONE full Kinect game. Doesn't that say something to you?"

Yeah. I never said I'm interested in Kinect to begin with. I don't own one and I don't plan on buying one soon. The lack of games and the input delay bother me too much.

It actually refers to a preview by Wired.

dragunrising2252d ago

It references one preview by Wired...

How many Kinect Star Wars previews are there? Many. Not all are bad. Not all are good. The force powers are said to have been pretty cool as well as the pod racing. Light saber battles on the other hand are implemented slightly different from what people expected. Hopefully the game turns out all right.

Active Reload2252d ago

I hope they start selling that gold controller!

IRetrouk2252d ago

looks cool, if it wasnt for the gears one i would of got this, but the gears one is just sooo much better.

--Onilink--2252d ago

well even though the game hasnt come out, anyone who has looked at any video or demo of it knows just how bad it looks so far. SO BAD in fact, that for it to end up a good game they would probably have to start all over again, which is a shame, cause the concept of a star wars motion game could have been really cool.

On the other hand, the console looks amazing, definetely one of, if not the best mod they have released (of course not counting fan-made mods), such a shame it has to come with kinect and those awfull games

oohWii2252d ago (Edited 2252d ago )

Well --Onilink-- the great philosopher, I think most people that are buying this are buying it for the Console not the game.

Funny how you PS3 fanboys try to hate on Kinect so badly that you will take any angle you can find to do so. I remember when 90 percent of you were saying that Kinect was going to wind up in the bargain bind so you can see why no one really gives a damn about your opinions now.

IRetrouk2252d ago

you know its not just sony fanboys that dont like kinect, i know it might be hard for you to believe but so far only 10 mill of a 50 mill fanbase have bough kinect, that a lot of peps that arnt interested.

TBM2252d ago

hey oohWii i own both PS3, 360 and i don't give a crap about kinect or the shovelware that comes with it.

from the videos ive seen of this so called star wars game i looks like total crap. there's no way to sugar coat that.

and like IRetrouk said there's what like 50-54 million systems out there. kinect has sold what 10-15 million that means there's more than enough people who don't care about this stupid camera, and don't want to support the shovelware that comes with it.

instead of investing in new IPs or studios they use it for casual crapa$$ games.

KingME2251d ago

hey TBM i own both PS3, 360 and i don't give a crap about the shovelware that comes with Move Even though I own Move, Only use it for 1 game and that's Tigerwoods.

from the videos ive seen of this so called star wars game i looks like it might be pretty fun for people that don't take themselves seriously (if the shoe fits...). there's no way to sugar coat that, If you take yourself too seriously, you go around on N4G troll shit with your opinion; an opinion that no one cares about.

and like IRetrouk said there's what like 46-50 million systems out there. Move has sold what 10-12 million controllers not complete systems that means there's more than enough people who don't care about this stupid dildo/camera combo pack, and don't want to support the shovelware that comes with it.

instead of investing in support for their existing products that just make new shit and never support it. (can you says Eyetoy, and PS Eye before Move?)

See what I did there. Even though I don't really mean the negative things I said about Move or the PS3 I was just trying to make the point the blab out a bunch of BS is easy to do and just makes you look like a douche.

--Onilink--2251d ago

lmao, now im a ps3 fanboy because i dont like kinect??? for your information, i own a wii, 360, ps3, 3DS and a gaming PC. Im not a fanboy of any company, i like games in general.

Kinect, so far as awful games, wheter u want to admit it or not. Same for the move, i bought one, realize that they were making just shitty games that were pretty much the same as my wii so i sold it. Simple

So next time, before u want to make grand assumptions out of a single comment, i suggest u think things a bit more, because not everyone feels the need to support every single thing a company releases

ARBitrator2251d ago (Edited 2251d ago )

Well, perhaps you shouldn't made dumbass unprovoked negative comments and you won't get labeled a fanboy.

Owning the other console doesn't immune you from being a fanboy, it just make you a fanboy that can't even do being a fanboy very well.

I read your comment and it was fanboyish. Your are also blabbing about you distain for Kinect as if someone gives a shit. Just saying.

i dont care anyway the console is horrible as hell!!!

dragunrising2252d ago

You know what is horrible? Stating opinion as fact and making pointless comments.

There are plenty of people interested in the Star Wars Bundle for a variety of reasons.

littletad2252d ago

How did this crap get approved?
