TCC: A new patent filing reveals what could be an add-on for the Nintendo NX
Why would Nintendo need to copy someone else's mistakes when they are pefectly good at making their own? /s
If it just means there is voice commands so we can tell netflix to go to the next episode(kinects really only mass used feature). Then I am all for it. Why not.
The patent describes other things that are not voice related. Besides, if it has a mic and a processor that can process the spoken text than it doesn't need an external device to handle voice commands...
Honestly, I like my Kinect but I am fully aware that I don't use it for actual gameplay. If they're working on something that will let me just scream at my TV to lower the volume, launch games or turn a system on? Sure. Okay. But the moment it effects actual gameplay? No thanks.
why can't nintendo just make a conventional console? no kinect like features, just a console and a pad with no fancy screens etc. is it too much to ask?
LOL, I gave up on asking that question years ago. Them coming out with a followup console with the same name and same gimmick with only a marginal mark-up in power over consoles that released over 6 years before it in the Wii U was the nail in the coffin for me. They lost their way when it comes to common sense in the hardware market.
Because they will be doing exactly what Sony and Microsoft is doing. That's not very competitive. Nintendo's success comes from standing out and catering to casuals. Not to say they've been perfect with it.
We don't even know if this patent is going to be used or not. Of all of Nintendo's recent patents, this one looks like it won't be used.
Worked for the Wii nuff said
Just saw the article that Nintendo might be working on their own VR headset, if true they need something to track players movements, what if these 'kinect like features' are used for that?
I thought i read somewhere that nintendo turned down this technology in the past.. This patent might not even be for NX
the silence from nintendo is deafening. i wish you all had something real to complain about and troll instead of rumors and patent speculation.
