OXM UK: "Frontier Developments boss David Braben feels a first-person shooter with Kinect support would be "phenomenal", providing it's sensibly combined with a controller interface."
I wouldn't describe it as 'phenomenal' but a really neat feature. You notice how, when players do play FPS', they always tilt their heads left and right instinctively as if it help them see round the corner. Imagine a FPS with headtracking where you can peer round the corner by tilting your head slightly. I reckon you would have to press a button to initiate it thought because you don't want the camera to be moving unnecessarily.
That would be a good feature. It can be naturally implemented to help out with the controller.
Doesn't that mean aiming will require a coordination of both head movement and right stick? Maybe there can be dodge functions when you tilt your head.
Kinect as a supporting act for the controller, I can live with. Kinect as the main attraction, I struggle to get excited about.
I agree. Kinect just doesn't offer much for a real game experience alone, coupled with the controller it does have some interesting potential.
Depends on the genre of game IMO. Games that require precision shouldn't have kinect as the main controller.
or games that require full body tracking like dance and sports. You simply can't do those games justice with controllers. The other part we have to wait and see. At this stage the technology is close, but not there yet. The good news, the data is there, you just have to interpret it, so it is a software problem. Software is upgradeable!
WiiU tablet controls seem the best fit 4 a real Hardcore fest in my opinion and in general Kinect is 4 casual kiddy crap but Microsoft will push it hard with tons of cash i hope they fail.
I'd use Kinect more if it had head tracking. Especially in Battelfield 3 to look around the cockpit of jet's when flying.
Should be awesome, could be awesome, would be awesome. Isn't awesome. The story of Kinect.
but the game would still be on rails but if they done this with not full kinect games it could be cool like bf3,cod,and gears.
It is great and all,..And hopefully they implant it in games,. but you really don't need 150 usd tech for that,..
What other tech would we use then? Please don't respond with something ridiculous like the eye toy.
Yeah, that would be ridiculous Oh wait... http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
