Kinect Software Will Work with Seated Players When 'Developed with Sitting in Mind'

Microsoft has clarified that Kinect is very capable of recognizing a user that's sitting, an aspect of the new tech that continues to be a point of confusion. "Kinect can be used while sitting when an experience is developed with sitting in mind," a representative for the company confirmed to Joystiq today.

Hopefully this will silence the haters who keep complaining about this feature, even though it was obvious it would allow it from the start.

Only time will tell the level of possibility and success of both Kinect and Move. I'm learning to be a bit more patient each day with both of these.

reminds me of sci3nt0l0gy...

I like playing my games relaxed. I don't even play my wii standing up you douche bags

@Omega : You're really naive, maybe that's because you're young...

If Kinect works while sitting then :

- why is there zero Kinect game playable while sitting ? (confirmed)

- why did MS ask devs not to make games you play while sitting ? (confirmed)

- why do 3rd party games like Ruse support Move and don't support Kinect ? (confirmed)

Please help me my friend.

Hint : because it doesn't work and it's just another lie / PR bullshit by MS / Molyneux / Greenbot.

wow what a fail of tech if i've ever seen one.

Fulensenca3115d ago

If I had to say in one word: Disaster.

They have time to improve it ... maybe.

MS have promised a lot and not delivered (for instance where the hell is that feature that were present in the trailers about recognising your own skateboard and also having more than 2 people playing at the same time). I am only going to believe it when I see it.

beardpapa3115d ago

so will those games developed for sitting use feet and legs as methods of motion control as well? e.g. driving game will it recognize my feet like it's stepping on brake and gas.

So there you have it... there will be games for the *ss dwellers! Even though the games for Kinect are meant to get you up and moving around, you can still sit on your ass and get fatter! Now, no more complaining please...

What I want to know is....

Who gets control of Kinect when there are two or more hands in the air trying to play and control the movie?

As for this, I'm pretty sure they mentioned this before. I just hope you make racing games "with sitting in mind".
