gamrReview - What Kinect Offers the Core

Motion controls have been a divisive subject for gamers ever since the launch of the Wii. Since then, Kinect has only fuelled that fire. And while the Wii has since proven its worth to fans, Microsoft has been struggling to create convincing arguments for core gamers to like Kinect. This article is aimed at showing that Kinect can not only be a good home for core games, but it can enhance aspects of them too.

I think it has potential, it's just that no effort has really been made to realise that potential. I'd love a Viva Pinata Kinect game, for example. Rare should've made that instead of KS2 :(

i agree there really hasent been any effort put in, Rare has put some effort in with the kinect sports titles its just that the titles themselves are ones that most consumers dont want.

There are great games on kinect but the bad games outshines the good games.

Kinect + a MS version of Move would be great. Kinect by itself... not so much. It'd be better as a control augmentation, than a standalone controller.

Alternatively, Move + Sony version of Kinect would also be great. I'll bet both options will be possible, next gen.

This, I know people would rather fan the flames but..

Kinect is a better camera than the pseye


MOVE provides better accuracy than Kinect.

With kinect you cant game against controller and keyboard players like you could with move.

With move you can't get great head tracking like you do with kinect.

People say competition is a good thing, not always, ms kinect on playstation with move would be awesome.

Im hopeing that ryse does good and fable the journey. Theres still room for indie developers to do something really amazing i mean most of the stuff like free movement and shooting have all been done by independent developers. Opening the marketplace or kinec fun labs to indie developers would just make the device flourish i hope microsft announces something like this at E3.
