Unfortunately Microsoft's implementation is looking like it might not be fantastic (no used games? srsly?) but I'd say the Kinect has much more potential to improve gameplay than the Wii U pad (which, let's face it, isn't going to be used for much more than maps or inventory management in most games).

What do you think?

It is a remake, not my fault you people think ports are remakes (but only on Nintendo systems)-Demondog666 on Kid Icarus Uprising

No, I really don't think the Kinect will click this gen either. I mean it's basically another means of a controller. They can improve on it but other then that it's motion tracking.

So, in short, the U will be a glorified DS, which everyone has been saying since its launch? ......Yeah, I'm ok with that.

I agree with these posts. What is the new kinect gonna do for gaming that the original didn't?

And it's unclear whether this stuff (other than voice recognition) will work if you're lounging on the couch. Who wants to stand in front of the TV so that they can double fisted grab the UI to minimize. o_O

I hate the kinect and seeing as the Xbox one is a kinect based system, they lost my sale.

I'll be buying PS4 now.

I prefer the gamepad to kinect. The gamepad can clear screen clutter and probably do something amazing like every 3D Mario shows us. Movement, is ok, but talking to myself out loud is dumb to me.
