Team Ninja’s Peter Garza reveals that Kinect support was considered for Ninja Gaiden 3, but that the team “couldn’t find a way” to make it work as well as the game’s “badass” PlayStation Move implementation.
Move is better with almost all hardcore games skyrim should get updated
sky rim would be epicer (new word ftw!) you would be way to tired though, ever play that gladiator game on Sports champion? yeah then you'd know how tired you can get haha, and ninja gaiden 3.....thats just gonna make you ripped haha
Kinect can only work with very, very simple games and as a supplement to others. It cannot, and will never function as a true alternative control scheme because, unfortunately, it just doesn't work well enough. Now I'm not bashing Kinect or anything, but what I say is true. Sure, they could find a way to add some irrelevant Kinect feature like voice commands in ME3, but what's the point?
Now that you mentioned it, I would be curious to see what Skyrim would be like when played with the PlayStation Move. I don't think that Kinect would be a good idea though. I tried playing Rise of the Nightmares and it just failed for me.
Lazy dev, uncreative too.
there goes your bubble. look at the facts
then be creative , explain to us how you'll pull a playable Ninja gaiden with Kinect , without turning it into that crap named Ninja Blade . And please true gameplay features , no gimmick like fondling some breasts controller free :p .
You're telling us you passed on Fruit Ninja???
And you're telling me you wanna compare the intricate art of slicing fruit with one finger swipe touch or kinect , with that dumb game with no intricate or complex gameplay whatsoever named Ninja gaiden ? What's next you're going to throw at me some kinect version of angry bird , if i debate about the possibilities of something like hitman or bioshock done properly with kinect ? Again we havent see any great use for core action games , beyond optional features . Maybe we will see it sometimes or like we already do , other kinds of games for maybe another public ... wich is ok too , just not for me .
I was being sarcastic...
sorry then , some people actully think that seriously :p
That MUST be it. I mean, after seeing how well Kinect works (or lack thereof) it should be no shock NG3 doesn't support it. And really, Move makes more sense with the game than Kinect. With these type of core titles, Kinect seems to work better as an enhancement rather than a full control method.
Move is perfect for it! Kinect is better off sticking with fruit ninja;) or salad tosser.....lol! I just thought of what I said lmao.
really did just lol. bubs for the chuckle.
I think it's because the Move is just trying to do what the DualShock does, only in a more innovative way.
yeah precisely , it's an alternative control accessories with normal, not a game changer ... wich is precisely why it should works fine with it . With kinect you have to create something else , wich has yet to work with any core game , as a main control . Maybe it will in the future , but it hasnt happen yet , with only rise of nightmare to show for so far , with mixed effects and feelings
Well Der, Ninja Gaiden is an actual game with fast gameply. What could Kinect do in it? Seriously. Navigate menus maybe.
The Move control scheme fits in well with the regular control scheme. They could have used Kinect for QTE's or Ninpo - but probably not for full control. Not that it matters - I'm playing it with a joypad regardless.
wait a minute i thought people hate QTE's lol, fact is move >>>> kinect, kinect is eyetoy all over again, which is fine for the casuals as obviously they are happy with fruit ninja lol
No , different peripherals are better for different genres. It's like the plastic guitar on Guitar Hero - sure you can play the game with a joypad - but the guitar is better suited. It's the same with Move or the Wii-mote for lightgun games , and it's the same for Kinect and sports games.
@StifflerK Sports games? Surely you mean dance games. There may be a few sports mini games that Kinect is better suited for, but it's certainly not better suited for sports games in general. Move and Wii-mote are better for racket sports, golf, fighting/ combat sports, football (pro evo on wii), bowling, racing, archery etc. What sports games were you thinking of? I can't actually think of any that Kinect is better suited for.
@ Wh15ky I'd have to disagree - Kinect sports was far better then Wii-sports. Boxing, football, athletics, bowling , volleyball, skiing /boarding, obstacle courses and sure any fitness and dancing games. As for baseball, golf and tennis - just wait for the Kinect Sports 2 review - it's out soon.
"I'd have to disagree - Kinect sports was far better then Wii-sports." The best game on each of those titles was the bowling IMO. I don't see how kinect sports bowling is "far better" than wii sports bowling. If anything they are as good as each other, though, I prefer Wii bowling. "Boxing" The Fight and Gladiator Duel on Move are light years ahead of any fighting/ combat game I have seen or played on Kinect (Kinect Sports boxing and that cage fighters game for example). "football" Really??? How does that work? "skiing/ boarding" games are better with the wii balance board than on Kinect. "volleyball." Agreed. "As for baseball, golf and tennis - just wait for the Kinect Sports 2 review - it's out soon." No kinect support for virtua tennis, top spin tennis or tiger woods should give you a clue on this one and I fail to see how baseball can be better on kinect.
I said this once and ill say it again: the day i can properly play Ninja Gaiden with kinect is the day im going to buy it. Guess the time to shell € 150 for that garbage hasnt come yet. Maybe next time.
obviously,move is better control
1. Kinect Ninja Gaiden 3 2. Heart attack. 3. ????? 4. Profit (for the next of kins)
Kinect definitely wont be suited for ninja gaiden I can't swing around an imaginary sword and that way move is more physical.
its pretty simple why you cant really make a hardcore good game with the same quality as other real games. there is no directional buttons/analog. you cannot move at will with the kinect, it cant simulate actual walking, running, this is why everything is on rails, which on rails is fun for some games but when you want a real game like skyrim or uncharted, how do you get that to translate from camera sensing? you cant. the wii and move can do it because they have an analog controller, while something like the move has alot of on rails games aswell you can still play infamous, uncharted, killzone, lbp etc with it because you have the option to actually move. that is where kinects biggest obstacle lies
Another shot of adrenaline to PlayStation
Not a big loss there. Move would be better for this type of game. Kinect is better used for other games and with xbox live.
I support kinect and i also belive that it wouldent be good on ninja gaiden 3 it could work for skyrim espically if they implement voice commands for stuff like switching magic or swords and bows. Skyrim could also put in maybe a mini joystiq like the wiis for controlling the movement and jumping or turning (you could just jump,move or turn in real life though. Skyrim would work great with kinect especially if they added 3D and the head tracking the immersion would be so incredible that you might start hunting dragons in rela life. If i was the developer for ninja gaiden i would just try and use voice commands for the jutsus only useable with kinect or that are very complex to do with a controller. In the end it all depends on innovation and what kind of game it is.
A true statement is true.
got to finish sigma 2.
I hope MGS Rising supports move too
