Stuffwelike.com shows us why Kinect is not good enough for DDR, Move and wii shows the best at launch party.
Kinnect? I'm not trying to defend Kinect here... but you spelled it wrong.
M$ are sooo busy hyping the tech behind Kinect but the problem is that even if Kinect is what they say it is, we are YET to see something that's going to shock and awe us. On the other hand, SONY have already shown some SOLID kick ass AAA that are going to utilize MOVE such as Killzone 3, Socom 4, LBP2 and what not. SONY is doing it right when it comes to software support. They have got it all covered! The casuals, the hardcore, they are doing a great job BUT... Sony has been very VERY lazy with advertising MOVE. I keep seeing MACY's Kinect ad so very damn often and I have YET to see a MOVE ad. SONY NEEDS to up their advertising game. This is where M$ can draw a solid line. Their advertising budget is huge and that can really do some wonders. MOVE will sell great on word of mouth but Sony needs to back up this great tech that has an amazing software support by advertising the hell out of Move! Word mouth can only go so far!
I don't care about advertising or which one sells more. But it simply amazes me how the 360 fanbase is so passionately defending Kinect - something that isn't even aimed at them, something that delivers on 1/10th of the things Micosoft promised it would do. You'd think gamers would have higher standards...
Trust me, anything that has Microsoft's name on it...they will defend it like a newborn.
You'd think GWAVE would have something better to do than troll Kinetic articles all day long or create alt accounts like __crissy to give himself agrees. You must be really threatened by Microsoft.
I don't think it deserves triple A status. It's just another American Generic Shooter. Bunch of tough American soldiers in the desert doing missions... Seen it 10 times already. We will see my friends maybe it will impress. Killzone 3 however, does deserve the triple A status . With a story I have never seen before you become immersed in the game.
@ crissy On the flip side of that, anything with Microsoft's name on it is attacked like crazy by the SDF suicide bombers. If you dare say anything bad about Sony or anything Playstation you had better be prepared to go in to hiding. It simply amazes me how the SDF are so passionate about their attacks on Kinect and the 360 for that matter. It is just plain pathetic.
At andrew Ryan; hmm socom is situated in asia... and they didn't show any desert landscapes... ^^
Because the x360 fanbrats were the ones who started it. That's why.
As said in the past, it all about how the devs decide that want to code the game for that particular peripheral does "LAZY DEVS" ring any bells SDF? Had the makers of DDR used the same style of body tracking as Dance Central, their game would have played better and thus been more appealing to the masses. Don't blame Kinect here, blame Konami.
@ARBitrator Sure its about whether devs are lazy or not. But there's also the part of the limits to the technology. And seeing Kinect isn't the most responsive thing in the world, trying to do a fast past level would be hell. You'd have to be as fast as the pre-E3 demo of the SW Kinect game... http://cache.gawker.com/ass... Also, dance dance central, from the demos and videos, does not seem at all like it has to be as fast and accurate as a DDR game. You have a few seconds to do the move / gesture that is required, where as with DDR games, you need to be quick as hell and any lag will kill you.
You folks never seem to disapoint with your bullsh!t spins on EVERYTHING. First off, It's not "dance dance central" second, the game shows you what's coming next, you still need to keep up with the avatar or you'll get feedback letting you know that you are done. DDR requires a footpad using move and wiimotes with it is simply just to say they they are using it. The moves being done with those controllers are completely pointless and you could see for yourself. Besides, the dude said that the Kinect game was in beginner mode, perhaps you should wait to see what the final game looks like before you pass judgement. Or perhaps konami saw dance central and just threw in the towel knowing that their game was going to get it's a$$ kicked anyway who know. If you look at a person playing DDR, do they look like they are dancing to you?
The guy claims they are ALL very buggy, the Wii being the best of the worst...lol. Sounds like DDR is a fail. As for the comparisons between the various motion controllers, MTV's Dance Central has had rave reviews, is a Kinect exclusive and utilizes the still in development Kinect tech very well. Many have called it and Ubisoft Kinect exclusive Your shape fitness game a killer app for Kinect. No reason to hate on it. Don't like it, don't buy or play it. Here's a sample of Dance central: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
He says the Kinect version was hard to play cause he didn't know what to do. Sounds more like the problem is with the software. Then again, it doesn't matter to the PS3 fanboys if the bashing is legit or not. They take every chance they get to bash now that release is drawing nearer.
I don't know. It seems Dance Central has no issue tracking people, so it sounds like people are pulling at straws in an unfinished product based on a guys experience of a portion of a game. He even mentions it in the video, that this might just be in the early part of the game for beginners. Nobody on the other hand is saying, "Oh, my god! Kinect works. Check out Dance Central!" Instead we get, "Oh my god! Kinect DOES NOT work. Check out this guys experience of a part of a buggy game." Anyone see a problem there? I find it ironic as posting this comment, another article has a positive experience of Kinect. SHOCK! http://n4g.com/news/584160/...
indeed it's easier for the system to not display you as tracking... than the lag isn't visible... If you think about it, for dance games this is very good...
Actually Soda, he said that it's more like you're striking a pose rather than actually dancing. Don't know how you missed that since you obviously heard him say he didn't know what to do at first since he says that right before he says it's not actually like dancing. Funny how you call out PS3 fanboys, yet can't admit your own bias.
You know the 360 is starting to do well and its offerings are starting to appeal to the masses when PS3 fanboys start writing anti 360/Kinect articles themselves or radically changing the title and and description of stories.
You know with Dance Central you just do poses whatever the screen tells you which for kinect is not hard to accomplish at all. It's not like you do whatever dance moves you like and kinect is tracking all of them.
i actully think dance central looks cool! if it does come to the move like they said they wer looking in to, i might actully buy it
Um...excuse you? Most PS3 fans can admit that Sony *has* made mistakes. But most of us can also acknowledge that they made up for their mistakes. Microsoft on the other hand constantly makes mi8stakes and don't learn from them. Welcome to my ignore list. I don't know why the mods haven't done something about your comment yet.
Kinect doesn't need a dance matt.
What's to disagree with, dumbasses?
was that lady gaga? smh.
If you saw a penis, then... yes :D
Well it's Dis-Kinect, what'd you expect.
Can't wait for the PS3 version of DDR to come out :D. Already have it paid off! Also if that is the pad that will be given out it [that is showcased in the video at the 0:44 mark] looks nice.
"Strike a pose rather than Dance". Says it all to me really. Says it all.
Not the same vibe, not at all: The Wii version is the simplest, which it good; but not using the pad is kind of a crock. The PS3 version seems the most complicated, which is also good only because the game is kinda complicated: using the pad keeps it true to form. The 360 version feels kinda gumpy, but like the dude said it might be because it's on a low setting.
Thats not a good sign.
Once again Kinect demonstrating an impressive amount of fail. Oh sorry, I forgot we were waiting for Kinect to show its 'potential'.
The Peckham Pouncer lol, +1 2-u mofo (i LOVE OFAH)
lovin the name...you plonka!
Kinect and Move is not the same type of tech. Comparing them is like comparing Go Karts and Tractors because both have wheels. The only comparable tech is the PS Eye. Compare Move vs WiiMote and PS Eye vs Kinect. Anything else shows a lack of understanding for the tech.
but you sound a little rectally irritated that Kinect is being shown in a bad light.....again.
No... I think Kinect will fail. I just don't see the point in comparing Kinect with Move. You should compare Kinect with PS Eye. The same type of games will be on PS Eye and Kinect. Move on its own can be compared with Wiimote. PS Eye + Move is like comparing Wiimote + Kinect. So there is no point in comparing Kinect to Wiimote or Move.
It's about comparing what the motion devices of each are capable of providing their user base. These are the technologies each have chosen to use and therefore should be compared to one another directly. How else will a consumer know which to choose if they are weighing motion controls while choosing which gaming console is right for them? Sounds to me like you are finding fault in articles like this because it doesn't favor the device you do.
Actually it points out why I prefer Move over Kinect. It just seems pointless to compare a camera with a controller. Regardless of MS hype - Kinect needs a controller - and I think three months after Kinect is on on the market MS will be forced to face reality and release a wand type controller for XB - which will be too late for this gen - so most likely have a wand + camera for XB720.
so how do you explain Kung Fu Live away? just wondered
how many of kinect bashing articles do we get daily
not enough for the 'average' user of n4g
So let me get this straight....because Kinect underperforms and is generally unimpressive to most people (including 360 only people), it`s N4Gs fault for allowing people to read/watch/talk about it.
"because Kinect underperforms and is generally unimpressive to most people" I love how you KNOW this, despite not having used Kinect, or played any of the games that aren't out for another THREE MONTHS. These games have a good two months left of tweaking and balancing left - but hey, you carry on, I'll try it when it comes out and you never know...I might just enjoy it. You can sit there in your little bubble, crying about how bad Kinect is...I'll carry on and have fun, which is the whole point of playing games.
Listen. I didn`t say "Kinect sucks" It`s unimpressive, if it does something to impress me...I`ll buy it. But I like how you felt the need to rant and insult me. Thank you.
You and who ever titled this article. It is kind of stupid and waistful to have that kind of hateful attack on Kinect, when the guy in the video obviously did not intend that kind of reaction. He was negative, because he did not understand how the game designer intended the Kinect version to work. What ever his expectations were and how the designer disigned his game have nothing to do with Kinect capabilities. This is a design choice.
How many? Not even close to the number of those "PS3 is doomed" articles we used to get despite the fact the PS3 sales were gaining on the 360 the entire time.
when the shoes on the other foot! i have never seen so much hate for a console/peripheral in my life... i think we can safely say that it's not PS3 fanboys that are showing the hate, it's the industry in general
You people cant SERIOUSLY this stupid, right? Of coarse Kinect cant do DDR, because you need a freaking pad. The game would have to be done differently to support Kinect. Guess what, Move cant do Dance Central like Kinect can. I guess that mean Move is full of fail too. Freakin fanboy morons.
"Guess what, Move cant do Dance Central like Kinect can" You know what? I almost sure it can do it. :p
Oh really? Since when can Move do full body motion tracking? Yeah, try again.
ps eye can do that since 2007.
Lets wait and see if that happens. If it does, it will answer a bunch of questions about what PSeye can do compared to Kinect. I will go out on a limb here, and say: I think it would be a completely diffent game just like DDR is. Oh, while I am here reading the Kinect hate post, I would like to say something about the actual games rather that the devices: Dance Central wipes the floor with DDR games on either system. There, I feel better now having gotten that off my chest.
LMAO, that is nothing like Dance Central.
PS Eye can do Body Tracking, Voice, Facial Recognition since long time ago. That involve Move with Motion Gaming.
why the tard on the video keep calling dance masters kinect game a ddr??!?! its a totally different product, focused ON HANDS movements. i`t´s not everyone fault the dude dance pretty bad imo. comparing ddr to dance masters its like a comparison between mario vs god of war.
this was the type of game kinect would be best for! oh well shows what i know
That guys such a retarded... lol
Kinect is controller free, it looks to work but Dance Central would wipe the floor with this. Konami are no-hopers in my opinion, never have I felt like smashing a game more than MGS4, its a movie for gods sake... don't get me wrong, I was hoping it was the best game ever as I loved all the others but that was the last straw for me with Konami. Castlevania would wanna get very high review scores for me to buy it. Otherwise I think Japan is clearly lagging well behind the west for games. I agree the Kinext one looked like it was the least fun but anything the Wii or Move versions was doing could easily be done with kinect, they both had dance mats. It would be silly to say the PS3 version is pretty stupid, a dance mat AND move controllers... what are you suppose to be LOOKING at? This is pure Fanboy flamebait, not gonna get kinect until it proves itself but wouldn't touch move either.
Are there ANY games Kinect IS good enough for?
kinect has no gaemz and is trash the end lol.
Kinect is not a PS3.
Damn right, if it was it would have games and work. Bubbles.
Oh it was a special joke for all the PS3 fans right here. Kinect is a real let down, it's useless, especially know with even lower resolution and accuracy than 2009 E3' BAM! There it is! version of hardware. It will sell of course, its just not what I hoped for. Move tech demos, videos and those few mini games we've seen are actually impressive. Latency is as low as possible and it's perfect accuracy make me say WOW every time i see it.
Tats The Most Lamest Joke Ive Ever Heard.
WAKE UP IT'S NOT 2007 ANYMORE AND X360 HAS NO NEW GAMES COMING APART FROM REACH AND GEARS, PS3 HAS SO MANY GAMES COMING I WILL BE BROKE FOR A LONG TIME TO COME.
Oh God chill out. Sony fanboys are really one of a kind.
Of course it's not enough for DDR. Kinect with its despicable lag isn't going to cut it.
it will soon be the laughing stock of the games industry
