As in, forum games. But if you want to talk gaming, we like that too.

Kinect. another "move yo body" production.

I ain't holdin' my breath.

It seems like Sony is the only one who isn't trying to jump the gun as far as next-gen gaming in the hopes that hype will earn them billions.
... Would be neat if something good finally came of this though. Like them getting to work on that total immersion helmet or something... ;)

Gotta say I'm more interested about the technical achievement than about the gameplay itself ^^'

I'm pretty skeptical about Kinect, too. Maybe it'll be great for playing Dance Off games and 5 year olds pretending to pet tigers, but it doesn't seem like something that encourages hardcore gameplay. Imagine playing Soul Calibur on that thing! You'd be lucky to last all 3 rounds.

Did anyone see that Forza driving game? I mean...how is that better than using the Wii Wheel? And someone raised the question of...how do you brake? Mehhh. Sometimes a controller really IS the best way.

Someone I know worked on Forza and he told me that the Kinect has some problems too - if you're not the right height, it won't read you correctly (So I'm out!). Also, it gets confused if you have facial hair.

But hey, if your life goal is to be an average height clean-shaven mime I bet it's a great training tool.

That's funny considering the child in the demo. But anyway, I suppose no matter what limitations Kinect has, since it's just part of the XBox console in the end (and doesn't cost extra), it's not that bad.

o_O I thought it was a separate thing you have to buy...for $150... http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/2906 ... At_149.php

It's not going to stop anyone making normally-controlled games though. I hope. Probably depends on if it's wildly popular with the masses.

Well I just took that from the videos above. But according to your article, that would be the $300 bundle, although my search on BestBuy says it's $300 for the console then $150 for Kinect when it comes out. Confusing.

@_@ I'm confused too! I guess if you already own an Xbox you're screwed and have to pay $150...?
