GamesRadar: Microsoft Creative Director Kudo Tsunoda has been trying to justify Kinect. Weirdly. Well to be fair, his basic logic is sound, but the example he used to illustrate it? Not so sound. Read on, and I'll attempt to explain his crazy talk.
Kinect is a plumber? Kinect is a turtle on a cloud? Kinect is a power flower? Kinect is a helpless princess who keeps getting captured every single game?
Microsoft is going to claim that Skittle is like playing Socom with the Move.
I get what he's trying to say, and he's right. The thing is, most of us grew with Mario. In fact, Mario games were some of the first, if not the first games we've played which is why so many core gamers love the series. Kinect, on the other hand, is purely casual. They have shown NOTHING that appeals to the core crowd. Heck, even though the Star Wars games looked good, it's just an on-rails limited game. Kinect should not be compared to Mario. Simply put, it has the same capabilities as the PSeye and has shown little to nothing new or innovative. Kinect is for casuals and MS has made that loud and clear. If you still believe Kinect is for the core crowd then you're just blinded by fanboyism.
The sales will " justify " Kinect and then the Sony camp can continue to cry. Sony...we have a 3D camera too...just it's not ready yet.
why would sony need a 3D camera... mostly kinect footage has been jump up and move left and right, throw ball... If you think that's appealing to any harcore gamer, than I'd like to know you definition of that. But you'll end up replying saying..."but but hardcore games will come." Well If you want to believe that, go ahead... No full hardcore game will work with kinect, all what they'll do is gimmicky stuff on hardcore games. You need and many other look beyond the marketing and such. Be critical...
I think 360 gamers want to play hardcore games, and not Kinect sales. Unless you're telling me that you and all 360 games want to play sales, and not hardcore games... Then that would be the stupidest thing to do ever. Buy a 360 and Kinect for over $400 just to play sales. Only crazy peoples would do something stupid like that.
Nah, I don't think so.
if you do all hope is lost. seriously if you can't be real for a moment then you need to leave
first ill call bull shit.... second ill call this was said a while ago and is old news edit: bull shit as in... if you belive that kinect is like mario... your fucked up.... and/or on some drugs... and if soooo i want some of waht your taking
Really Microsoft, really? I mean Kinect is already a joke in my eyes and this is absolutely not helping my opinion.
I can’t wait for the videos of people breaking there TV’s when playing natal, I just kick my 3,000 dollars TV into oblivion while playing natal…
this article gonna get hot lol.
Mario? NO WAI~~~~ Mario can be full on hardcore in some areas. In the later levels it becomes almost a twitch gamers worst nightmare and don't get me started on Galaxies Prankster Comets... my god. But he could be meaning that Kinect game's share the same appearance as Mario. As in look all friendly and get insanely hard. But the point of fail there is that he said the river rafting game was similar to a platform game. Ummmmmm.... oooookay.
comparing one of the greatest franchises of all time to some stupid eye toy rip off is just stupid.
when we look back at the peripherals that failed, powerglove, Virtual boy, N-gage, and yes....Kinect.
But at least they had some games
I only see two peripherals on that list: PowerGlove and Kinect. What world do you live in where N-Gage and Virtual Boy are peripherals? :P
Powerglove... lol... I remember that movie with Frank Savage in it(the Wizard) and in the end he brings forth the POWERGLOVE... me as a little kid then was like... whoa... I want one. hahaha now when I look back at what the powerglove actually is, im like... WHAT THE HELL?
Yeah Fred Savage said he loved the power glove because it was so bad.
These Kinect jokes just keep getting funnier and funnier. Microsoft should do stand up.'Kinect will be brought by the hardcore' Ha Ha Hah! A riot. Stop! Your killing me!
What is this I don't even
it's going to be absolutely revolutionary. i should probably preorder 2, 1 to keep and the other to ebay during consumers mad holiday rush to get it. it's this years zhu zhu, mark my words.
You'll get millions of dollars in debt.
don't give them clicks people just troll here and let them come to you
I never grew with mario, i grew up with pong,galaxian, space invaders, supersprint,bombjack and many many more which you'll find and play using mame.
Just imagine playing Mario, or a Mario type game with Kinect for just a minute and you'll be worn out. I know that's not the point of the article but I imagined that for just a second and started getting short of breath.
