Did you watch the Kinect video?

Dude fully accepts new things, namely the new touch screen tech. But to be clear he's not exactly against Kinect as a thing, he against how it is now. He doesn't like it while it's still in its infancy. He said it has a future, he just doesn't think that future is now.

He pretty much said outside of party games he doesn't see a good use for it, as it is now. Because of the time latency issues with regards to the movement tracking.

...and this is EXACTLY why the device should be an optional peripheral and not a mandatory purchase or console requirement.

I agree.

Reason why I still didn't buy a Kinect with my 360.

Whoever he is, he's probably right. I've been pleased with my 360, but have no interest in motion controls. None. I don't want to shout at my TV or flail about. Fortunately, I have no brand loyalty. Maybe PS4 is a better option. I enjoyed my PS1 and 2 before making the leap to MS. Since I'm not buying either at launch, I'll just have to wade through the drek that is gamefaqs to see what the popular opinion is.


Yay, shadowrun fans!


I agree with Monkey. I was a PS1-2 owner, got a 360 this gen, but had absolutely 0 interest in motion gimmicks and crap. Kinect 2 won't do much either. If the last one is an indicator, it'll end up mostly with casual crap games likes sports, and exercise simulators. I lol at when Steel Battalion was supposed to be the "hardcore game for kinect!", then met with awful reviews and broken controls.

Developers care about the core game first and foremost, not flailing around in front of kinect to play. controller still works best until real VR games are achieved.

I like your sig jaydig- meanwhile.. fankids are defending console hardware with their lives, just that the MDF is worse as they never want to concede when MS has screwed up with anything and justify it every time.

I agree, but I just felt I should point out that John isn't bashing the Kinect just cause.

Yes, he simply points out that the device isn't all that Microsoft promises it to be (the sun, the moon, the stars...) and by that implies that it shouldn't be necessary for the console.

The first Kinect flopped, many people ridiculed it.


Now that MS is making it a mandatory purchase, it's all of a sudden revolutionary and a good thing with endless possibilities?

What?

They are conformists

If the Kinect wasn't forced into the Xbone bundle, most of the people praising it now probably wouldn't even care about buying it

agreed, there should be a separate "sesame street" bundle or maybe a "dancing mini-game" bundle for those that want the kinect.
