More evidence that Kinect is just not a good piece of hardware

I think a lot of people are missing the bigger issue with Kinect. It's not matter of if it works, there's no games worth a damn for it.

Look at that stupid glowing vibrator sony put out. Nobody uses that thing either.

I stupidly bought Kinect for my 360 and it's by far the biggest waste of money I've ever paid for something. Now MS is shoving it down our throats if we want to upgrade. Nice of them to take away our choice in the matter and charge us more for it huh?

Friends,

First off, im a sony troll, and im not hiding it.

I think I commented on this article already today.

have anyone you guys Done anything with motion controllers? Ok Wii bowling, that was ok, but it was pretty simple. the rest are not that great.

I have the ps3 Move. When everything was PERFECT, it worked ok. we moved, and I put it down in the basement. Well not enough light. it looks bad and not that great of a picture.

I dont think any motion controller works that great. So im not surprised at this. We are just not there yet. This is not a xbone bashing thing, this is a total motion controller thing.

maybe for a game like Heavy Rain, it might be ok. But try to play 4 hours straight of an RPG, and your arm is falling off.

Another cheap shot. Thank you for sharing.


Dance central is fun and so was child of eden and gunstringer. Now i wouldnt buy a system just for kinect but i think its a great addition.

I find it funny that people mock sequals and shooters etc but so many people hate kinect for being innovative and adding variety to games.

Everyone already knows that Kinect isn't that great for games outside of rhythm games.
Most just want it for the other features it brings.


What like spying?

I think alot of the demonstrations that have been with this new kinect have had a purely marketing base, and....just like the original kinect, a different story will be told with the production product from the originally previewed product.

I mean, this is what MS did to sell star wars kinect:

It's absolutely ridiculous the amount of BS they did to sell the original. I would not put it against them to do the same this time around.

You are appreciated.

Until this Kinect can be used as seamlessly and intuitively as Tom Cruise using that hand motion interface in Minority Report, I am uninterested in paying to be part of what is essentially a public BETA.


Show me a AAA RTS(StarCraft2, WarCraft3, XCOM, ect) that can be controlled near perfectly with voice and motion and I MIGHT get on board. Untill that can be accomplished I will continue to consider Kinect 2.0 merely the next Public Beta for the tech. I do not PAY to participate in BETA testing, I offer and volunteer to test; I PAY for FINISHED products.

You know they call it main-stream? Its because a stream is shallow.

Kinect sports rivals proves the Kinect 2.0 actually works eh?

I have a video here that suggests otherwise

The lag, which was the main issue everybody had with the device, is still present, the Kinect 2.0 is going to be just as useless as the previous one.

8>1. More evidence that Kinect is a great piece of hardware.


You seriously want us to take that sizeable list of evidence and believe it over TC's insurmountable single tabloid review and believe you? Get out of here!


Not to mention that Microsoft PAID them to say good things. We can't forget that

Should it be Microsoft or m$?

Kinect reminds me of the original version of Fable that we were promised. It clearly wasn't anything like what they initially sold us on, and ever since then the promises have kept on flowing and the product repeatedly disappointing.

Maybe if they were smart they'd simply focus on using it in a bunch of rythm/party games and leave it the hell away from the core audience, but just like Fable, they're not happy with what they can do well; instead they just keep on piling more BS promises onto the table and failing to deliver.
