why is kinect being given such a harsh treatment?

As a kinect enthusiast I am a constant supporter of kinect and if something bad do happen I try to assess the reasons for the problem and comment on what could or should have been done. The thing that hits me the hardest though is when I see a bunch of comments about how it sucks and this and that when it’s clearly been proven that it can have 1:1 recognition and do other cool things. This is on top of the fact that it’s been out for only 10 months and is still a little new to the developers.

The point that I'm trying to get across is that even if most of the stuff produced by the big guys of gaming aren't the Holy Grail’s of motion controls doesn't mean that motion control in general is bad. With the kinect you really can play any type of game with it. The only issue is that with this innovative device you’re going to have to come up with an even more innovative way to do the varied actions in the games we know and love today. We have all seen such innovations like the way Ubisoft has implemented shooting into kinect without the need of a trigger and also the new ways to play made by modders/hackers online.

I believe that these are great signs of what we could do with kinect and that as time goes by the kinect will just keep getting better and better because of kinect's ability to upgrade through software. It’s going to take time but it’s a sure thing that as time goes by the games and software behind kinect will get better and better. I recently commented on this post with some cool things people have done with kinect on you tube, just check them out and just think about what could be done with kinect if you were allowed to develop your own game.

Motion control in general doesn't work. Didn't work with the Wii, doesn't really work with Move and certainly doesn't work with Kinect.

if its good for anything, its party games where you don't have to think.

I watched that and yea that is horrible though if you think about it is similar to that kinect vision video those bugs can always be worked out which is why the game was delayed its just a common part of gaming that developers run into with every game.

because your avatar fucking pisses me off

Move works, with real games...so, you probably don't know what you are talking about.

"as it's 90% insecure Sony fanboys"

Lol, unsecure with better hardware, freeonline, bluray, better exclusives (and way more variety and quantity)..stop living in your opposite world, you, like all the xfanboys and their multiaccounts, are the unsecure one, writting on all ps3 subjects, bashing the best games, best inovations, just because you don't want to accept that you failed in 2006.

You must have missed the memo as Godmars is one of the biggest PS3 fanboys on this site.

Motion control doesn't work with Move? Yeah sure bud. Different manufacturer. ;)

Godmars2901815d ago

Given the current air, I have to say that.

It is better proven, can be incorporated into regular titles, but still there's a lack of Move-only games that prove it.

I mean Sony could have done a $40 light gun add-on with all the of shooters that's been adapted to it.

Motion Gaming is only fun for party games... besides that i see no point in buying any of them.

Hufandpuf1817d ago

so many devs are scared to touch the thing. Only modders produce anything worthwhile so far. The hardcore crowed certainly isn't glad they bought the kinect, especially the countless Wii owners that now say they never bought one or leave it to rot even though it was the best selling console early this gen.

xX-StolenSoul-Xx1817d ago

Well i have played a few games i enjoyed with my Ps3 move, Socom 4, Killzone 3, Modern Combat Domination.

But those were short lived and i promptly switched to my regular control instead.

Shadonic1816d ago (Edited 1816d ago )

there not afraid of touching it even epic has dabbeled in some ideas for a kinect gears title which ultimately was shot down. Its not that their afraid its just that when you put any high end game like gears or crysis then think about how you would allow the player to get that same or even a better experience out of the game without any buttons,annolog sticks, or triggers its kind of hard to think of a way for that to even work in a game. I mean i always see comments like how the future soldiar gameplay looks dumb but when you really think about it they acatully have a good way for how this could work for kinect based shooters. Just like i said in the article the real thing that matters is how innovative and simple the controls are and also if they work it shouldent matter in the long run. Even if theres lag that can always be adjusted just like the kinect star wars lightsaber lag they decreased that and made it a little better. you also have to think about how when you have a controller your input is always the same but with kinect theres basically 10 million different controllers ranging in sizes and if their input or gestures dont match up that great with what kinect sees theres going to be problems.

Shadonic1817d ago

just because the devs havent really made anything worthwhile still dosent make the kinect trash, and if the modders are creating things that are amazing that just supports the fact that if done right kinect games can become better. I mean even the studio thats worked on the matrix games have started experimenting with kinect and even made av

Regardless of how honest this blog may be, it's not going to go over well with the n4g community.
