This should bring a lot of new exclusive IP's to the 360 and MS won't even need to pay 3rd party devs for them.

How big is the current line-up of games for kinect?

Kev... you are the man...Bwahahahaha....

Well, have we all forgotten that the processor was dropped from Kinect? That means that not only would the controls have to be patched but everything performance wise would have to be redone too. Now, that is the true reason that they won't do it.

I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
Spread my wings and fly away
I believe I can soar
I see me running through that open door
I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly

I would like to see Mass Effect 3 as a controller + Kinect Hybrid. Control the game normally with the pad but use your biotic powers with hand gestures. I think that would be cool and if there was a patch for ME2, i sure will play it a 3rd time.

Apart from that, i agree with leaving the old games as they are and investing in new IP's. Will be interesting to see how Steel Batallion, Codenamed D and the other more serious Kinect games announced will turn out.

Yeah, letting go of your pad mid-firefight to wiggle your hand around sounds like a great tactical interface.

green2917d ago

So raising your right hand while your left hand is holding the pad to simulate commander sherpard doing a shockwave is difficult? So trusting your hand forward to do the throw while the other holds the control pad is difficult?

There i say it, the method of a hybrid (controller +kinect) will IMO improve Mass Effects gameplay because pausing the game by pressing the right bumper to activate a move that is not mapped to one of the buttons reduces the flow of the battles in the game.

This is old news, they already said that Kinect can't be patched into old games around E3

KillerPwned2917d ago

Kinda sucks their are a few games id like to see use kinect. But this will force developers to release new IP`s. So its got its pros and cons. Still waiting to see something blow me away tho. Till then lets see what you got kinect.
