Kinect 2 games could be mindblowing

With Kinect now being a mandatory part of the Xbox One system, the prospects for developers could make for some interesting games.

They faked the demo of the OS, give me a break.

Starwars was suppose to be mindblowing, Milo was suppose to be mindblowing, Steel Battalion was suppose to be mindblowing. Kinect isn't mindblowing. The only mindblowing thing about it is they constantly fake demos using it.

yeah keep that negative attitude going

Meaning you jump and hit a fan going full speed?

I think that there needs to be a great medium to combine Kinect with a game. Doing both Kinect and utilizing a controller for a game might in fact make a great experience playing said game. It's all about getting it done and figuring out when to use Kinect and when not to. Now that Kinect is released with each system it will help. Problem is not everybody asked for Kinect to be bundled. I'm getting a PS4 and I sure don't want PS4 eye(camera) haha but hey that's just me though. Give me another extra controller instead of Kinect/PS eye or give me death!!

Being positive about a device that is habitually lying, would be silly. There is a point where being positive can become being gullible and idiotic. Kinect is a great example.

It doesn't matter how advance Kinect 2 becomes, it serves nothing for games. MS knew that so they showed us fancy tech demo's instead.

Eldyraen2513d ago

It does nothing for games that we have had and are used to.

I still like the tech and believe it has potential but its just never been reached and instead marketed more towards casuals, families, or as a non gaming device. I never bought one though for the reasons above. It "could" be great but only for certain uses which is the problem--I still don't want to have to rely on it.

The old tech demos are still the coolest "gaming" uses yet. The kid destroying a city as a dinosaur or whatever--an interactive 3d "Rampage" basically. It could be cool for a city simulator as well (or Viva Piñata reboot). Of course there is the "Milo" tech where you can interact with a digital character (Kinectimals looked kind of interesting in that regard but limited and again more family centric than other possibilities). I still think it would be great for adventure/point and click style games (The Walking Dead for example could had been done easily and made things more visceral--think of what something like it or other arcade/PSN titles could be with Kinect/Move or even on the Wii U).

MS though is sort of the company of possibilities ATM--what it has shown just never lives up to the potential/reality. Sony could do the same sort of stuff though and if they announced it probably wouldn't be given such a "wait and see" attitude from both sides. Double standard perhaps but also in some ways deserved.

People fear what they don't understand, hate what they cant conquer. Have you been paying any attention to the new kinect or are you talking about the old one; im confused.

The engineering videos ive seen are crazy accurate with pretty much no noticeable lag.

MariaHelFutura2513d ago

Yusef faked the demo of the OS. Watch it again and watch his left hand.

From such examples it is pretty fair to say that if someone shows the full abilities of the Xb1, its not going to be MS. Least likely.

"Kinect 2 games could be mindblowing"

Keep telling yourself that

Shadonic2513d ago

Really metacritic, -_- that's like the Wikipedia of review scores. While I agree that most of the kinect titles are absolutely horrible you cant just judge the device on being mind-blowing solely on the games. I've seen people accomplish things on the first kinect that 99% of the consumer market said was impossible like finger tracking and free movement or even shooting. While i don't expect it to be incredibly mind blowing after seeing how precautioned developer's were with past kinect implementation ( i can understand this because taking risk in the current market is something you rarely see)I do expect some amazing things from the PC/Modding community since they accomplished many things with the device that MS and AAA developers couldn't even do in gaming and outside as well.

Haha I just said that outloud and then I looked at your avatar, hahaha.

claudionmc2513d ago

Like Star Wars? or like the incredibly amount of kinect 2 gameplays showed in the conference?

SegaSaturn6692513d ago

...but they won't be ;D

Didn't they announce some amazing jrpgs like panzer dragoon saga or dragon force for kinect? What happened with that?

Jek_Porkins2513d ago

It's Crimson Dragon, and it's the spiritual successor to Panzer Dragoon. I believe that game will be shown off at E3, but I think it might be coming to the Xbox One, either that or it'll finally get a release date on the Xbox 360.

I love Panzer Dragoon, so it's something I've been following for a while now. It'll work well because Panzer Dragoon is on rails to begin with, plus dragons are always win!
