one more feature =/= better

Tbh I'd choose no-Kinect edition just to have a cover without this annoying info

awiseman3796d ago (Edited 3796d ago )

How is this annoying? This is the first proper hardcore game with Kinect..

O thats right.

@ jmorgan below, look at the number one user on n4g and tell me how many bubbles he has. Truth is that the high bubble ppl are ps3fanboys.

Yeah! Yeah! This is great news. This is the start of hybrid Kinect controller core games. Just as most of us Kinect guys have been saying: there are ways to enhance gameplay by adding Kinect as an option with the controller. If this is well received, expect to see this in more and more action games going forward.

E3 is looking more and more interesting by the day.

@Nate: I delieve that to be true. I believe I mentioned that as a possibility when the delay was revealed.

I think a lot of the integration will be voice commands, head tracking and grenade tossing. At lease that is what I am expecting.

Whats nice about it? Motion controls are turning harcore games into casual games....Socom is a perfect example of that.

JokesOnYou3796d ago (Edited 3796d ago )

If they do it right with some intuitive controls like a quick throwing motion for grenades, hand signals for direction of squad members, voice commands for squad actions, melee movements, HUD display & menu's that you can interact with by simulating a virtual keyboard in "Minority Report" style, then this will be a huge marketing tool for other devs to intergrate kinect. I have no doubt REAL gamers are going to love anything that brings them more intuitive interaction with great hardcore games. lol, I keep hearing people say "I don't want flail all over my living room", yet none of what I described has you jumping behind the couch for cover, simple quick gestures is all that are needed and its already possible with kinect....dev's just need to implement the right control scheme, in the right way, for the right game. I don't know why ANY gamer would oppose kinect evolving controls and the way we manipulate our games, hell with that mentality we should have just stuck to Atari's joystick and 1 button, especially since ANY kinect intergration with core games can simply be an OPTION but I mean the whole point of gaming is to draw you in to the whole experience of that world, to me things like this would be one more step in that direction, again if done right it WILL be the start of a new wave of more immersive games. I think some just don't want to see kinect be successful with hardcore games because it doesn't have a PS logo on the box.

I'd just be happy with a release date before I'd prefer to start speculating about that. Could be possible though that maybe part of its delay(s) has been down to integrating Kinect.

It was suppose to come out this year but it got delayed until the 1st quarter of 2012.

well i hate it all the cool stuff is video you walk up to kill a guy press x and watch it happen???

horrible demo last year

iamnsuperman3796d ago (Edited 3796d ago )

The feature is probably using your voice and maybe hands to control you troops which could be easier and a different way of playing. I do not expect kinect only (controller hybrid)

btw the whole "better with Kinect" will be a marketing ploy and people will have to decide themselves.

Senden3796d ago

Definitely a marketing ploy.. voice control for troops would certainly add a new level of depth but in most game's cases, I can't imagine it being anything but slightly better.

RankFTW3796d ago

Rainbow Six 3 had voice control for your squad and that was 9 years ago.

lowcarb3796d ago

Yeah and RB6 is the perfect game to use hand gestures and voice commands in with Kinect.

Oldman1003796d ago

pew pew pew

BAA BAA BAA

I'm actually curious to see how it will be implemented.

Scrotie_McBoogerball3796d ago

I can't see it ending well.

So far every bit of Kinect I have played has made me glad to god that I never bought one.
