ISM: Overview aside, Kinect was there; and Jose and Storm both played it. We still have a ton of more footage/pics from NYCC, we'll be rapping it up later today.
That didn't look fun. They looked like they were bored out of their minds.
If only these Kinect games were as exciting and revolutionary as promised by the marketing hype. The reality is they're just boring simple gesture-based games.
Why does the figure in the corner of the screen in the first video spaz out? 2 minutes in.. This is ready for retail?
tho being in a busy conference room doesnt help still even in perfect conditions its buggy as hell.
rofl roflr folrofl the end of the first video, guy focuses on the epic fail of the avatars....dude thats killing meeee wow im dying here hahahaa
if not for sheep mentality, why would any gamer buy this thing? No seriously, I would like someone to inform me better cause maybe I haven't seen the great gaming experiences you can have with this thing. So far everything shown for kinect is below par of the average games for the eyetoy on the PS2 talkless of the many great titles the eyetoy has. For every vid we see of the masses (not paid actors forcing the look of "fun") playing kinect it doesn't look much fun at all but you still get many on this site and others saying it's a "day one" purchase or they'll get it when it's 100bucks or below So enlighten me, what's the appeal in this kinect that you've seen that will make you spend over $200 (or any money at all) for the camera and the games?
doesn't even have a cpu. Yet it still gets blind support. Move works, and im still not buying it. But Move at least works in any condition. Kinect is going to sell so well based on not showing gameplay for commercials, and selling lies pretty much. Natal was hyped as Minority report at home, where your body is the controller for all these new interactive experiences. Milo, all of that was just horse craw. Xboxfans should be happy that Microsoft is going to make a ton of money for (well not for any gaming lineup, buying first party studios, or reducing xbl costs) but for something, based on Kinect's success of having absolutely nothing but shovelware that cant even do Wii-RipOffs. Its webcam games at a premium.Sad state of gaming I'd say, but not too sad, because I don't have to force myself to pretend to see potential in this device without a cpu.
You think there are a lot of Kinect Fail videos on youtube now.. Just wait till it is the consumers hands and anyone could make a video and upload it. The tech is buggy and not ready for the market but MS are launching it anyway
Really, because if you look at the second video when people are actually playing you can clearly see a smile almost all the way through. Check it out yourself. Towards the end of the video you even hear the girl say "awesome" loudly!
"Really, because if you look at the second video when people are actually playing you can clearly see a smile almost all the way through." Yea that was probably the best video I seen for Kinect (it acctualy look like it was working) in awhile and almost makes me want to get one. I still just dont get why things like the avatars get that "jitter" effect, they need to iron that out. And to all the haters. like I always say "If you are a gamer and want Move or Kinect to fail, then YOU fail as a gamer" Stop being close minded fanboys.
I watched the second video. The guy looked uncomfortable and bored. I don't care what that girl thinks. She might have had fun... That doesn't mean that what I saw her or him doing was even considered remotely fun FOR ME. Key words = FOR ME. I am not being close minded... I am just stating how I feel. Kinect is junk. Open your eyes. MS has abandoned you guys after Halo Reach. Why are you blindly following them still? You guys still can count on Epic games to give you something hardcore next year.
Man this kinect deal is just garbage. I dont know about you guys but this gens era of trying embrace all of this motion controls bullshit is just sad. Never in my early days of gaming would i thought that waving and pointing your hands, be it controller free or with some kind of magical dildo with a glowing ball on top, at a TV set would be something to be considered fun in anyway. and to think, all of these fanboys trying to defend this crap just because of their blind loyalty to some giant corporation just baffles me. all i can say is, that I cant wait until these "motion controls fad" fades away and dies. The sooner the better because all i foresee the inevitable; a crapload of shovelware.
@pennywise - now you're a profiler huh. Dude, you have so many talents. The people in the video were smiling and appeared to be having fun, somehow you fanatical fanboy attitude blinded you from seeing that. Once again everyone Pennywise present and/or account for at in a kinect thread. You are well on your way to becoming the biggest troll on N4G.
The thing about kinect is that IT FAILS. So many gamers hate it because it's a complete fail product, wasting everyone's money and we all just fu*king feel bad for those dumb ass cows who buys product like this. If your a dude that finds the things girls like "awesome" then your probably gay.
seriously? thats really funny =P @ everyone saying "why do you people come to kinect articles if you aren't interested in it" because its hilarious...=P and...i do see wiihaveaproblem like website for people who hurt eachother with kinect =/ those guys are seriously close to smacking eachother =P
They were forcing themselves to play it.
wearing a glass in while playing game is silly they say... this is far more than ridiculous, this is losing your dignity.
That was embarrassing to watch.
ask yourself: how many times would you want to play this shitty game ? I think this guy wanted to step out after 10"
Kinect is Ridiculous
Your avatar totally sums up this video.
Judging from the look on thier faces,they look like kids who are forced to eat a bowl full of bioled vegetable.
lol @ the legs spazzing out constantly
I noticed that immediately also. WTH. How can this guy sit there with a straight face.
...you only look cool, if you're holding a phallic object in your hand(s) while moving around and waving your arms? I see....
Its not about how you look, its about functionally working. This clearly does not.
And without reorganizing your would living room just to play.
...believes that's a Kinect-centric dilemma. It's common sense....if you're playing games that focus on MOTION, you need ample room to MOVE. The Kinect just has a very detailed calibration setup prior to first-time use, depending on your living conditions. To be honest, if you live in a cracker box apartment or a trailer, you probably need to be saving that gaming $$ for something more important...like a DP on a house.
its about not looking like an idiot. can you understand that? that was...*pulls out awkward turtle*
It STILL doesn't work properly. :\
I wonder though whether the surroundings were interfering. You can't really say it looks good this way.
but if it doesn't work well there, how will it work in a house with kids running around? people walking around? pets? i mean, lets face it, this is NOT a stable device. well, people will enjoy it regardless I'm sure...
it works under perfect conditions... but who has perfect conditions?
If by perfect you mean choreographers and staged video presentations you have no argument from me.
Yes cause you look so cool playing Gladiator or that party game swatting bugs.
it worked for the wii.....
heres the thing the move games are not as ott there also fairly imersive spassing out for kinect games is different then playing a game with waggle or move simpley because of imersion kimnects imersion level is like watching or following along to an excercise video move and wii is playing a game
a love and hate relationship. You love it because its actually fun to play with. You hate it because IT MAKES YOU LOOK VERY STUPID when you play with it.
what kinect game actually looks like fun? jus askin
Dance Central looks pretty fun.
Dance central is garbage. It doesn't do 1:1 tracking, you just dance in front of a screen. You can do this at home w/o kinect and save 150.
I agree, dancing games and boxing games are the only ones i can think of that could be any fun on kinect...after a few drinks of course, because they replicate their real life counterparts. Shooting a gun, driving, racket sports will all be miles better with Move and Wii.
You can say that about anything motion related, who wants to spend 150 on the move when you can do everything it does, for free, while getting exercise. E.g volleyball, table tennis, etc...
it's also boring to watch, and it makes the people who play it look like retards.
oh look is the ps3fanboys all over again, fearing november 4th
if kinect is anything to be feared of,,it is the fear of embarrassing yourself in front of everyone
Fearing what? Ohhh you cant answer...
I'm actually excited for November 4th. Because that is the day I'm getting Ghost of Sparta.
dude.. why u have to be a fanboy? even if u are a 360 fanboy u should recognize this is a fail for technology .. jesus.. u guys only think about how many more consoles can this think sale so u can stay on top of the ps3... thats fear my friend just admit it.. kinect is retarded..
well I'm just waiting to see your video while you are playing playing with Skittles
Well i'll be damned... lol
That was really painful to watch. This can not be the retail version it just can't be... OMG if it runs like that on release there will be a lot of pissed off people trying to return that crap. That if it is allowed to be returned kind of like opened games.
... F***ING ridiculous.
... and high.
never mind that you have no controller for deeper gameplay OPTIONS.. never mind that it's nothing like what microsoft presented with NATAL.. never mind that there are no CORE games at launch but core gamers are pumping dancing and fitness and say it's just as core as fable,gears and halo.. never mind that it has no voice control,scanning,or advanced gestures never mind the fact that sony could duplicate EVERY launch game with eyetoy for ps2 and pseye for ps3... never mind the fact that most if not all games so far are RAIL GAMES... nope....you are a ps3 fanboy for pointing those things out.no counter arguments will be given.they will attack you instead of facts you present.but hey....kinect is teh futurzzz and puts you in the holodec of star trek today....
You are right... automatically I am a Sony fan if I think this gameplay is utterly ridiculous and mind numbing. I don't think leaning, sticking my arms out, and ducking even qualifies for "gameplay"... But being that they are trying to pass it for gameplay and this has everything to do with the future of my favorite hobby, I feel committed to jump in this thread and let everyone on this site know that I think this piece of "original" gaming equipment is a bad idea and looks ridiculous. I imagine MS will sell some of these cameras mainly with their marketing blitz. They will sell it to all the hardcore MS followers. But, I really... REALLY hope that this thing fails. Before anyone jumps on me... I don't want it to fail because it is MS. I want it to fail because I think devs need to be held to a higher standard. The manufacturers need to be held to a higher standard. We have let MS pass this generation when they should have been laughed out of the industry(rrod). Basically what we have seen so far has been rehashed software from the PS2 days. MS came out the gates talking about a revolution, but all we have seen is a recycling. Hate me all you want, but prove me wrong first before you go clicking disagree.
What is with all the twitching IR skeletons. Looks like their legs are having seizures. I'd be embarrassed trying to sell/demo that.
Why do people even defend Kinect? It's broken, it doesn't do what was promised, and it doesn't support 360's main fan base? So WTF? Couple of days ago, I had to tell some teenagers that Kinect doesn't work for the games they wanted it to work for. It was so disappointing. I was like, "So, do you like playing with animals on a camera? Playing dancing games? Running in place?" They were like, "I want to play Gears of War, Halo, or Call of Duty on the Kinect." WTF was I supposed to tell them? Microsoft are in for the quick buck.
It's like you people can't enjoy anything, well except for hating trivial things.
FAIL at it's best lol
OMFG that looks so retarded. How in the fuck could any gamer take this seriously? No gamer is gonna spend $150 on this crap unless their a fan boy and must have everything made by that company whether it's good, bad, or awesome. Hell I would of skipped on Move have Sony not supported many hardcore games that actually work for that product.
Ah, look at the haters. I'm not buying Kinect but I don't comment on every article about it saying Kinect sucks, either. The people saying it sucks don't even own a 360. That's like me going to a Wii article and saying Wii Motion Plus sucks when I don't own a Wii anymore.
same thing every day. I am a 360 fan and I dont like kenect, but the hate is out of control. If kenect is a hit, and people actually like it, all these fanboys are just going to hate on the people for liking it. In fact they are already insulting the poeple that like kenect by calling them stupid. What the haters fail to realize (or simply choose to ignore) is that kenect is not for the hardcore gamer. It is for the casual, and the casual gamer just wants to have fun without having to learn complicated controllers. They just want to jump around with their kids and have family fun. Why does that make then stupid. I will not be buying this, but i can see lots of families buying and enjoying kenect.
well, most of the so called 'haters' hope they can get enough innocent moms and dads to watch further than the MS publicity machine so they don't give money to some crappy device. It might become a wonderfull toy but it needs more (working) games that add something to the experience in stead of living from the hype MS is creating around it.
If you don't mind looking silly that is no problem. I knew a lot of people who didn't play Dance Dance Revolution because of how they looked doing it though. But in the end no matter what anyone says or thinks about Kinect, trust me on one thing. Unless you are an athlete or used to exercise, aches, pains and strains trump 'fun' every time. You can promise all the fun or simplicity in the world but when your back, neck, shoulders, chest and legs start to hurt, you will think differently.That is why most exercise devices end up in the closet, in a corner or under a bed never to be seen again. @ X_GAMER_X you are very pathetic if your still using that dildo nonsense to belittle Move. I noticed for people who claim to not care if they look silly playing Kinect you get angry very easily when we make fun of it.
I have never seen so many PS3 fanboys in one article with this super combo attacks. I own both Console so am not a fan boy but you ps3 fanboys are such a hypocrite. When the wii came out with its controller most of Ps3 fanboy didnt like it and could never imagine to buy a controller like that.Not just here, But also on real life,suddenly the wii mote clone was a nice try. You dont think its embarrassing to hold a dildo like mote and waving it around and touching its head? You like it dont ya? Thats just to wake you up from your pathetic fanboy life and think about what you have first befor attacking others. Me on the other hand I dont find anything is embarrassing when it comes to gaming. Am gonna buy Kinect and we already have the move.
2007 we had a device releasing where you could flail around and flip your wrists and win a boxing match. We weren't impressed. 2010 we have a perfected motion device released with Move. HD graphics, online capable. We are impressed. HYPOCRITES!
Just seeing people defend this makes me lol very hard.
