Kinectimals gets new video

VG247 writes:
Microsoft’s released a brand new video of Kinectimals.Video pretty much explains itself, really. Little girl plays with the animal, plays dead and all that.Still, go say hello to Skittles. Get it below.Kinectimals, coming from David Braben’s Frontier Developments, releases this November alongside the release of Kinect on November 4 in the US.No date yet for Europe for the motion camera, but it will cost £130 in the UK, and €150 in mainland Europe.

The story is too old to be commented.

It....its.....its skittles!!!!

HorsePowerr3009d ago

That was really embarrassing to watch :\

Rot_in_Fail3009d ago

I remember having little virtual pet, it was called Tamagotchi :)

Cueil3009d ago

You have no children I'm guessing

Imperator3009d ago

Nintendogs, World of Zoo, Catz etc, etc. (and most of these did it much better than "revolutionary" Kinect, lmao.)

sikbeta3009d ago (Edited 3009d ago )

Hmmm... WTH from 0:40 to 0:45? kind of weird

Any idea if you can slap the cats or do any kind of movements to beat them, I can see PETA going mad about that...

Reminds me of Eye-Pet, but with way Less interaction...

Christopher3009d ago

Really Cueil? You think it in the best interest for your kids to spend time in front of the TV performing random actions to play with a creature rather than playing a game that could require some actual skill or critical thinking? Heck, the Lego games my nephews play at least require team work and puzzle solving.

I'm not embarrassed with this game, I'm disappointed that someone would make a game like this that does absolutely nothing to improve a child's development at all.

And don't get me wrong, I have the absolute same issue with EyePet and Nintendogs.

badz1493009d ago

there's no "skittles, stop, stop, skittles" LOL

Spenok3008d ago

Natsu X FairyTail3009d ago (Edited 3009d ago )

how is this sad? Its the same concept as that monkey game with playstation move. its for kids. Yall grown mens dissing a game for Little girls and boys. CMON NOW! and im serious. I mean yeah im wouldnt be interested in this but if i could see my kid as happy as those little girls are in that video. That would make my day Better. Yall lonely gamers always mad.

Biggest3009d ago

I have children. Trust me when I say they'll be much happier if you would do something with them. Don't sit them in front of the TV. Sit down and read a book. Color some pictures. Make a sock puppet. You see how that girl was interacting with the tiger-dog? You should interact with your children. Don't waste $60 on a new way to ignore them. And I am not saying this as a fanboy thing. Enjoy your children while they're children. Don't use them to defend this bullshit waste of money.

I love you man.. No homo... On a serious note well said..

I-Killed-Skittles3009d ago

I thought I killed this damn tiger!!

Spaghett3009d ago

Find yourself a new boyfriend, Maria?

Imperator3009d ago

After watching the new Echocrome ii vids, these seems even more primitive compared to what Move can do. I'm most definitely not buying this rehashed eyetoy.

Blaze9293009d ago (Edited 3009d ago )

I'm gonna call mine Mufasa and Simba.

on a side note - is that the same little asian girl from the conference?

Biggest3009d ago

So now all black people look like Asians?

Blaze9293009d ago

what? did you even watch the video idiot?

J-Smith3009d ago

the future of gaming, only on xbox360 LoL

jerethdagryphon3009d ago

the cats are cute but then i like big cats and even littlebig cats but the rest without any sort of feedback its like shadowpuppets

siyrobbo3009d ago (Edited 3009d ago )

The only thing i can think when i see a kinectimals video is -

can i kick it in its face, i would love to kick the crap out of skittles. That would be a day one purchase for me

does that make me a bad person?

DarkTower8053009d ago

If MS adds (and you know they will) achievements, there will be many achievementwhores who buy this just for that.

This is going to be a very popular launch title.

I look at this and still cannot believe how Black & White 3 is not getting developed right now.

kissmeimgreek3009d ago

well Molyneux did convince MS to let him make fble 3 on the PC. Cmon Black & White 3...

Jay5203009d ago

I don't see how Kinect will sell on a hardcore console. MSFT will advertise big games like Halo Reach, Call of Duty, Fable, and at the same time promoting Kiddie games like Kinectimals. I think this will confuse consumers.

Cueil3009d ago

Does MS own the rights to the IP?

kissmeimgreek3008d ago

You know since they own the studio and Molyneux works for them

Perjoss3009d ago

made me smile, I think this will sell units, all MS need to do is do what they do best and market it well.

kissmeimgreek3009d ago
