Game Kudos: Kinect is the future, but not for games

Game Kudos' Ruser Saldana thinks the Kinect is an impressive piece of technology, but based on Kinect's current lineup, he feels that its application in video games is going to be very limited.

"The current selection of Kinect titles either are painfully simplistic at their core, or dumb down complicated gameplay to work without a traditional controller...without anything that resembles a controller, it doesn’t appear that the Kinect can offer anything other than a simple, casual gaming experience."

Couldn't have said it any better. I'm still waiting to see these "hardcore" titles for Kinect with no buttons.

Kinect is a rubbish device for gaming because of the delay which causes a disconnect between the player and the game itself. Putting your hand on your head for kinect is telling of the device and what its meant for. I've played kinect a lot and have also realize that that it has a lot of problems which majority of the fanboys or media loves to ignore or deny.

Whilst Kinect uses stellar tech it's really difficult to imagine real hard cores titles that use it exclusively. It's not 1-2-1, it's not a high res camera ... only time will tell if they innovate the software enough for us to want one. It's an Eye Toy on steroids.

It is early days, and I think it will take a time to get some titles really show it off. Though it has to be said at the movement whether it can be used for hardcore gaming (or even intended for) is yet to be seen. It's a different approach from the Move.
