Microsoft HoloLens: RoboRaid

In this mixed reality first-person shooter, use gaze and gesture to target enemies, and dodge incoming fire using natural movements. Spatial mapping turns each room into a unique game level, while spatial sound lets you use the entire room to play—even the spaces behind you.

neat . but i see these holo lense activities getting mediocre reviews.

great for children though

This one looks cool though. Although I think it would be quite limiting in-terms of creating a "proper" AAA title for the platform. I mean, try to imagine Gears of War, or Quantum Break for hololens. It is well suited to this type of AR experiences though, which will be fun in the short term.

As an applications platform, hololens stands to do very well, if Microsoft price it low enough for consumers. Imagine googlemap on hololens (think of The Division map), or skype etc. Hololens could really enhance those types of applications.

Im not getting up and moving around to play a game.. Didnt they learn from Kinect?

ShowanW1380d ago

I see ur point, but i would so use this while just walking through the house or a walk around town.

Heck I'd get a quick game in while cooking dinner...

Look out! The robot invasion is coming out of your pot of chili, your toaster, and the coffee maker!!!

It's not for you and clearly you're looking at it in a limited way. This goes beyond gaming like kinect.

Its not as far as gaming is concerned but if theres some good educational & useful applications made later on, i would try it out..

reminds me this PSP AR Games

MasterCornholio1380d ago

It reminds me of Faceraiders.

That's pretty much it...similar ideas applied to a much larger scale.

These games might get released to the public but they're not meant for the public. They're basically just opening the door for developers so they have a starting point to imagine possibilities for IPs of their own. Microsoft may develop their own shit at a more complex level, later on, but right now all they want is devs to create more content to help sell their hardware.

i prefer VR as long as i can use controller to play the game, AR? too much work, i never into motion control game in the first place
