In a world built on hope and faith, I am the realistic idea. The dream come crashing down.

Why I'm A Little Bit Worried About Kinect

http://kotaku.com/why-im-a-little-bit-worried-about-kinect-1381738496

Summary:
* Kinect automatic avatar generator is buggy and too complicated to set up
* Using Kinect with more than one person degrades performance
* Kinect 2.0's lag is still there and it doesn't feel like you are controlling your avatar
* Facial recognition works. Nice that it knows who is holding controller
* Kinect ability to customize for the current user is amazing but that only accounts for 10% of experience

I hope Kotaku has gotten some righteous web hits from their article. Sensational, negative news regarding the XB1 is any easy sell to the trolls at this point. Judging from the front page of this board currently, the plan is going swimmingly.

You have said that same crap in 3 topics. And you know what? If you actually looked at the videos of the kinect 2.0 in action, you would know this article is dead on. But you won't admit that. This isn't some sensationalized trash the xbo article. This is a guy who sees some serious problems with the kinect and is concerned what it might mean for the system to be so focused and dedicated on a device that DOES NOT WORK. So go ahead, ignore it. Deny it. Say everything is fine. It won't make it come true.

Nothing ever gets better if you are complacent and accept whatever garbage is thrown your way, regardless of the source.

I'd take your own advice because this is the first article I've seen that doesn't say Kinect 2.0 works at least better than the original.

OH BUT in this one, regardless of any other circumstance, is OBVIOUSLY infallible gospel on the Kinect because well.....for obvious reasons.

Except I've watched the videos. I've seen those problems with my own eyes. I could see it from VIDEOS. How noticeable do you think it is in person if you can see it from mere videos? I can't convince you, because you don't want to REALLY look. Same as you can't convince me, because I have seen that he is right. Don't ignore everything just because it is something negative about something you are interested in. Be critical, THINK, question what you see. I will freely criticize MY interests when they have a problem, or do something that I don't agree with. That is how things get better.

If they were that noticeable, the Internet would be flooded with articles about it by now. And where are these videos that you speak of? Seriously, I'd like to see them.
