Pocket-Lint: Creative director says Kinect: Star Wars is good enough for true fans

Pocket-Lint: Before Avatar, 3D never really mattered. It was the moment when people started backing the technology for its merits, not just its gimmicks. Now 3D is everywhere, in virtually every TV and built into games on both the PS3 and Xbox 360.

Kinect still feels like it's stuck in the before time: it hasn’t had its Avatar moment. While there have been incredible sales numbers, there has yet to be a title truly worthy of critical acclaim.

Kudo Tsunoda, Microsoft’s creative director of Kinect, begs to differ. Kinect: Star Wars, he says, is going to be the hardware’s breakthrough moment.

"So many people love star wars." says Tsunoda. "There are things that happen in the Star Wars movies that people have always wanted to do."

“It’s super hard to fulfil that Jedi fantasy when you're using the force by pushing a button or moving a lightsaber using an analogue stick. I think that’s why Kinect: Star Wars resonates with so many people and why it's such an exciting title for Kinect as well.

Before anybody says anything he has an eye condition that makes his eyes very sensitive to light
He doesn't wear glasses all the time to try and look cool

That doesn't change the fact that Kinect Star Wars is an absolute embarrassment.

cynosure2382d ago

I agree
It annoys me seeing ignorant people though.Thats why i made the comment
Surprised it charted in Japan.Didnt expect it

Fairly shallow and insulting psychology to imply if you do not like this game then you are not a true Star Wars fan.

Also, this is 2012, and the first true HD era. I am not in the business of supporting "good enough". Games should not be made like they were built for a government contract.

Don't worry about it people, Kudos is a noob. He sits around playing Kinect games all day long, so he would have to be the last person who I'd ask to find out what games are good.

SandwichHammock2382d ago

yeah, the eye condition is called a "coke habit". /j *hears Corey Heart in the background*

Peculiar as I've seen many interviews with this guy in brightly lit rooms with no glasses. But hey, whatever floats people's boats.

On Topic:
Yeah, wanting to do a bunch of things from the Star Wars universe, like busting out a dance number to "I wanna be Han Solo"? The thing is apparently selling. I think it was number 1 in the UK, but damn is it awful.

cynosure2382d ago

Post up the interviews of him in brightly lit rooms and i will stand corrected
You shouldn't slander him making drug charges without proof

Elwenil2382d ago

Lots of vids out there with no sunglasses, most of which seem to be more brightly lit than a lot of the times he is wearing them.

I'm not saying anything one way or the other but the lack of consistency does seem to suggest shenanigans.

Of course.... What star wars fan hasnt always dreamed of a mediocre copy of a dance game in their star wars memories....

Everyone knows:
han solo dancing > epic story and lightsaber duels

GamingPerson2382d ago (Edited 2382d ago )

no one plays shooters on console anymore! They play air tennis!

Spydiggity2382d ago

everything is good enough for "true fans." "true fans" liked the star wars prequels. all "true fan" means is that you will make excuses for something no matter how bad it is.

metsgaming2382d ago

So the true fans are 5 year olds who like to dance? Well if you say so ....
