Enjoy a quick demonstration of Microsoft’s Kinect for the Xbox 360.
Looks like all new videos of Kinect are working flawlessly, can't wait till the 10th.
Kinect is looking pretty good and very responsive too! Only a few more days....
"THE FANBOYS ARE COMING... THE FANBOYS ARE COMING... RUN FOR YOUR LIVESSSSS!!! Looks good! Also that new vid on XBL makes other games coming out for Kinect look more interesting! I found this vid on youtube that should raise the interest in Kinect up considerably, however, it is not the one that released on XBL! When this commercial hits, people will probably get excited for it!
well, my friend, i don't want to troll, but let me ask you this, how does this game play any different with just a regular controller instead of using Kinect? its just right, left, up, down, thats it.
There's a significant difference: playing this game with a regular controller would be boring as hell. The fun comes from getting involved and physically jumping etc.
It's gesture-based. I'd say that's pretty different from using a controller and sitting down on your ass all day long.
i was looking for alittle sth more in-depth for the control, like acceleration, control of view angle, power-ups, etc etc... it seems to me the Kinect thing has made the gameplay even less exciting and made the game more simple in a boring way. i think people will get tired of this game after 5 minutes. if this is how their launch titles are like, things definitely don't look good. Edit: but then again, i can see you guys will say give it some time, blah blah...
The kinect games are all either, really simple, or on rails ( see the Harry potter demo). But the thing is, that is what MS wants for kinect, they want super simple and open for the general public. Not power ups and acceleration. The soccer mums couldn't give a crap about difficulty, they just want fun. And fun is what kinect seems to deliver in spades.
i am not really trying to say anything bad about Kinect but.... there are so many videos of kinect malfunctioning. so how does this one video prove anything?? especially it is so hard to see what is going on the screen.
Yea, Harry Potter seemed like a blast...I mean other than the fact the it was near impossible to hit any enemy with a spell, it looked like tons of fun. -.-
To be honest, the guy in the video seemed like he has played this game one too many times. He is pro at it and at making it look responsive. You have to react before obsticles so that your character does after the lag.
a lot of 5 day fun and garbage games coming in on both consoles
Moving left and right seem on point. Jumping still seems to lag a bit but if you just adjust for that and jump early you'll be alright. Looks alright though.
Now look like an idiot (i.e. waiving your hands and moving side to side) while playing video games. However, still looks quite amusing and fun.
you would be testing it out in the same way. Maybe not waving your hand about or with a camera on but people want to see what Kinect can do...
The fact that they announced a new Panzer Dragoon and Steel Battalion is enough for me to purchase this at some point. It also makes me happy that they're not alienating the controller, as the new Steel Battalion will use both Kinect and the Xbox 360 controller.
Ok so now we moved up from something boring that doesn't even work to something boring that does actually work.
I thought Omega4 was the biggest ps3 troll ever...Guess people here lied. >:O How come xbox users are excited about this game? If i was an xbox player i would be thinking on what game will entertain me before Gears 3 comes out... =\
"If i was an xbox player" If you're not then why are you in here in the first place? I'm currently enjoying Fable 3, Halo Reach and Super Meat Boy. What games will you get to play this holiday?
can any core gamers say they are interested in this game really?
Agree with you...But remember trolls incoming in 220.127.116.11.1...Let the negative comments begins...
....with this. It seems to play great. Oh and its a casual FUN game. Oh and Microsoft didnt allow sound for this video so theres something they must be hiding! lol
THAT is what I find wrong with it. @EasilyTheBest Exactly, we're all different. I, personally, hate casual games. With passion.
Mums young children and older adults etc, all find that theres alot wrong with Hardcore games, they dont like them. I like both. See we are all different.
You hate casual games with passion yet you play Rock Band and flash games?
I actually do NOT own a copy of RockBand nor I plan on doing so (but have tried it alot of times, liking the higher difficulties and the score-hunting), and I play Flash Games on Newgrounds once in a while to see our oh-so-dear gaming community creativity (wich, sometimes, turns out to be great actually, but sometimes it's...awful). I barely have played "casual games", though, and they're not of my preference- I do hate them and what they consist on (hurr durr MUM LOOK AT ME IM JUMPAN XDXD), and usually (hell, more like ALWAYS) pick up games you could consider "Hardcore". Truth me told, the only "casual" game I own is the one that came with my Wii- Wii Sports. And even then, the disc is completly scratched by serving my dog as a great form of fun and entertainment, something I could simply NOT find in said game. Also, should I take your statement seriously when your name has a "360" slapped on it, and basically means "hurr look at meh i f4nb01z lol"?
We aren't friends, why should you worry what we xbox gamers want? Why does kinect affect you so much? You're with Sony right? You're happy with Sony right? Why are you then spending so much of your time in a kinect article? Wii came along and look, Sony is still standing and pleasing you right? Why then are you afraid of what kinect can do? Please answer me that. I beg you
Works fantastic. Can we get a positive Kinect article without the PS3 fanboys...or is that impossible. Aww screw it....Get Ready, Set, FIGHT ! !
your insecurity shows
Please tell me what looks like so much fun??? I just want some honesty here. Nothing more and nothing less. I have played hundreds of games in my life. Many crappy games and many great games. This game just looks very simple and boring. Kind of like taking an Atari game and putting it into this generation with motion control. Left, Right, and jump. Very simple movements.
this is working quite well. cant wait to try out Core games next year though like Draco and the thing in the circus.
I love me some 360 but that just looks wack.
its still too expensive imo. Id rather buy a wii.
Wii cost more and it's not HD
Also it's old tech when you see what Kinect can do. The price is kind of steep for some but there are many other devices way more over priced like well...the Wii for instance.
Lol but Wii has games
just confirmed, it was all staged....fake microsoft
You have no source... Source me up and I will believe you Watch all these recent Kinect vids be staged, lol.
Mon whine about Kinect Tue cry about Kinect Wed bitch about Kinect Thu Kinect Kinect Kinect Fri Goes and gets help from other PS3 fanboys to hate on Kinect Sat Damn you Kinect Sun Pissed because Move is failing wishes he had Kinect
All I keep thinking is damn I wanna play Kinect Adventures with a regular controller. I hope the next SSX game isn't like this and if it is, I hope they give us the option to use a regular controller.
Good try but if you want a simple patch job just buy Move.
Looks fine to me. Lets see some reveiws.
i never did like playing that game during the beta test...
I will be getting the Kinect, Only parts that seem to show any lag is the jumping, but the game still looks fun.
Yea, for like the first 15 minutes..........
You can tell the guy playing was really having fun... >.> All jokes aside tho lol, I'm actually curious how Kinect games play without being on rails. I mean Microsoft cant keep producing games like this if they want to attract the Hardcore O.o
How obvious is it that they want the causal market and the timing is perfect because people are bored with there wii's.
To all you lames that are supporting this thing like its not lame, do you realize you could save 150 bucks, go buy a ball and have more fun? Cmon now. They see me rolling, they hatin
Maybe we get tired of playing ball and we look forward to buying new products for something different to do on our leisure time. I play football and practice is very exhausting so when I come home I look forward to reclining and booting up my PS3 to play with some buddies, NOT going outside to play more sports while my body is extremely sore. Do you realize you could save time and go outside to play something instead of wasting your time commenting? Cmon now.
What's up with comments preemptively predicting that ps3 fanboys are coming? On one hand they're so confident about kinect that they believe it will keep ps3 in 3rd place. On the other hand, comments like "ps3 fanboys in 3, 2, 1" just screams of insecurity.
@ kewl i wouldnt say its insecurity its as sure as the sun rises and is expected u sound insecure predicting others insecurity.
I'm sorry. How does everyone know that the people here are 'PS3 fanboys' saying negative things about Kinect? Last time I checked 360 people hate this thing as well. So are all Kinect defenders psychic now? Is that a pre order benefit or something? Like I said, you people crack me up. And just to add to your insecurity, you have to drag Move into this as usual despite the good reviews it got and reports that it is on back order or sold out or the fact that you believe that Kinect will beat it.The funniest site on the web. Watch the desperate fanboys count sales and argue like 4 year olds.
Still some visible delay to the movements onscreen, but you can tell it is getting a lot better.
its looking alot better, i cant wait to get my hands on kinects, ill be waiting in times square so i can get my 2 extra free games. when this thing sells like hot cakes its gonna get a little whiney in here.
xbox 360 can keep this one exclusive to themselves
I'm trying to get my niece to buy this for her son for Christmas just so I can try it out. I'm a stinker sometimes, but I'd buy Kinect Adventures for him if she does.
Seeing as it comes with the system and all.
You kids need to go outside. Climb some stairs. Have a real life friend to play ball with. Save your parents some money during this recession. Cam games last 15 minutes. Trust me. My generation ushered them in. I'm 30. The wii got it right. Microsoft should have followed that. Development for cam games are super expensive for simplictic gameplay. I'm sorry you kids got caught in the cross fire. We shall talk again in january when you've mothballed the cam already.
it still has laaaaag, watch what happens when he walks away smirks, the avtar does not copy him it just automatically teleports to the right of the boat oh boy hahahaha
It is gesture based gaming (Like EyeToy). Can be cool for some games. Is not going to replace joystick controllers or steering wheels or real motion controllers like Move or ever. Actually looks like a game my kids would enjoy.
i guess ur kids r gay
OMG!! that game looked so fun with Epic Intensity and graphics better than Unchartted 2!!Did you see the water splashes? Uncharted doeasn't have that. The way you get to jump up and down and wave your arms side to side like your at a hip hop concert has never been done before in a video game. This has got to be game of the year. I saw Zero Lag!! even when the guy walks away it just kept on working flawlessly. I bet you that crummy PS Move crap would of stopped working if you sat down the controllers. Not Kinect as it is so advanced it doesn't even need a Human being to play games. TOTALLY AWESOME!! Kinect is so better than a controller especially as dumb down as console games are getting who wants to waist time pushing buttons when you could just hop around like a crack addict while Kinect records your dumb ass and auto uploads the video to YouTube for instant laughter. Pc PS3 and Wii gamers are just jealous of the Kinect Exclusives that Microsoft has wasted $500 million dollars promoting. I'll take Kinectimals or any other Kinect Exclusive over Killzone 3 Starcraft 2 Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword any day of the week. Matter of fact with the huge Kinect Exclusive list this makes the xbox 360 the Number 1 console for Exclusives. Take that Sony. Sure go ahead and disagree fanboy as your just a TRoll who can't afford to buy 2 xbox 360 (cause one RROD) and a Kinect. Kinect for the win!! Kinect day 1 purchase!! Kinect will sell 50 million units!! Kinect the system of choice for Oprah Winfrey and Ellen Degeneres!!
