Microsoft's Hardcore Kinect- Can it Convince Us?

Is 2012 Microsoft's last chance to prove that the Kinect can win over the hardcore?

I'm still having a hard time believing "Better with Kinect". Especially when it's just a feature that my headset probably can do. There are some decent Kinect games but the list tend to be very small imho.

i agree they keep aiming for something small and in a game like mass effect i could of easily come up with a kinect control scheme that would work with it. There is already a control scheme that works for first person games and ubisoft has one that's ok for third person that could be improved over time. I'm hopeing that other designers are seeing this and are going for more hardcore stuff especially crytek with Ryse. I would like it if the focused on game play with kinect and story mostly and make something that grabs the player and puts in more immersion i mean were practically there like in the microsft video it had the kid speaking to the kung fu master well thats kind of like mass effect and for shooting theres the kinect fasst guy with the bulletstorm kinect so were practically there and it can do hardcore its just that not all of these ideas or features are not really being used in a game its like there just useing one feature in the most smallest way in their games as to not make the gamers shy away from their titles. IDK this is just my opinion.

Ghost Recon is a nice step, but I wouldn't count on it.

Why would i want to shout like a retard in mass effect 3 to take cover? kinect? GTFO

biggest issue is players understanding of the controls and that companies are still not up to the level of understanding with kinect to make something like that Unlike maybe Rare or ubisoft with ghost recons attempt which is spot on and a few gestures could be added in to take care of cover and movement. Really it could be done this gen but it has a way better chance of being more precise and better next gen. Really the should go try full on hardcore this year with things like fighters,shooters and some adventure games using kinect so when next gen comes they will be more better at using the kinect to its fullest. really comeing up with a control scheme is easy it just takes alot of trial and error to get something that works for millions of different people in different shapes and sizes.

If ME3 can't convince me nothing can, so no. Doesn't really matter if it convinces me or not though; I still haven't got any room.
