Kinect is like a Mario game? Really?

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.

fooltheman3014d ago

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.
