Before anyone says "ah Kinect.. lol" ; "Kinect ruins gaming" blablablabla...

First, Sony has more game studios than Microsoft. Because Playstation 4 is more powerful, has more video game developers support, then Sony should re-create Sony PS eye and create Kinect.

PS Move was just confusing. Having Kinect on PS4 could work very well. I mean Sony has better hardware team who can make Kinect more accurate with same price, plus you can have games that not having any lag or anything like that. This would boosts PS4 sell.

Having Kinect on PS4 DOES NOT CHANGE SONY PRIORITY AND MAKING ALL KINECT GAMES. NO, KINECT IS JUST EXTRA.

The thing is, PS4 outselling Xbox One and Kinect is dead on Microsoft side. Sony meanwhile sells PS4 crazy and why not steal Kinect, make it better and have profit? Sony don´t have to even force game developers make Kinect games. When you already outselling Xbox One and Wii U, then having PS Eye stronger than Microsoft Kinect can make Sony monopoly.

It can totally work.

No and Kinect isn't dead. Dance Central Spotlight comes out this fall and M$ still has several games in the works that will utilize the Kinect. The Kinect stand alone is coming out this Fall. What is dead is the PS MOVE. The PSVita maybe heading that way next is Sony doesn't support it properly. Murasaki Baby looked good however.

That's already happened to the MOVE, so you're halfway there.

Sigh... no matter who the developer of the hardware is will change the fact that getting up and moving around to play games will ever compare, even in the slightest to the response and escapism of simply sitting down and playing a highly responsive game with a controller or m/kb.

Kinect didn't fail because of who made it, it fails because it's shitty gimmick technology that reduces the fun of playing a video game.

Wii sold so much because IT DID NOT REUCES THE FUN OF PLAYING A VIDEO GAME, but instead increased.

So, you saying Wii 100 million is flop? Oh why Nintendo made Wii U then when shitty gimmick ruins video games? Why we need Wii Tennis then? Why we need Party games? Why we need Dance games when they all flop(sold more than call of duty... ouch).

#14 Posted by edwardecl (2239 posts) -

Oh come on now, there is nothing that badly wrong with Kinect. The main problem with it is price. An item like this needs to be less than $25 to make and it obviously isn't.

People would be happy to buy and use it if the price was right. The other main problem is Microsoft commitment to it, they tried to sell it with unrealistic expectations (probably to justify the price). If they just sold it as a game enhancer rather that a standalone controller for games they might have more luck with it.

#15 Posted by thehig1 (2314 posts) -

@FreedomFreeLife: Why dont sony just make a better motion control instead, it should be no problem if their hardware is better as you say and cheaper than the price Microsoft would demand for kinect from their rival.

The Kinect had quality games on the 360. Dance Central, Kinectimals, Kinect Sports, GunStinger, etc.. were all quality games. You must not own a Kinect or played any of these quality games. The Wii had more quality games, that's true, but they also had even more garbage games using the motion controller. Way more then Kinect.

Motion controls should be left alone for a long time. Wait 20 years, it'll be a fresh idea again, plus the technology will have improved vastly.

@FreedomFreeLife: PS4 is outselling Xbox one 2:1 because it didn't force stupid gimmicky crap like kinect. Adopting the kinect would be sales suicide.

Who said flop? The Wii sold outside the traditional gaming demographic because its gimmick appealed to a broader audience. They created a few (and I mean FEW) choice games that made people ogle for it, WiiSports being chiefly among them. Kudos to nintendo far tapping into an idea that made people clamor, but lets not pretend that the wii control scheme augmented gaming... also, kind of funny that you brought up the wiiU as proof that motion gaming works while that console is literally the whipping post of the industry right now, right or wrong. If motion gaming is the revolution you claim it be, then why is MS backing away from kinect, sony abandoned move and Nintendo can't sell a console to save their life?

Are you suggesting that the wii's motion control scheme was the defacto best experience in gen7? that those 100 million sales is proof that motion controls augmented the games we play to some new mount olympus? wow...

guess then the next logical step would be to declare mobile gaming the king of gaming then because smart phone games destroy EVERYTHING in terms of downloads and active players... Angry birds is the messiah of gaming with over 100 million downloads. Its all about the sales to you? right? Sales determine the worth of a control scheme?

Congrats Mobile gaming.... you win.

Wrong! MS owns 29 studios while Sony only owns 13 - yeah go figure. Keep in mind MS also recently opened 5 more studios.

Here are links to prove it.

Here's a better idea, why don't you buy it and develop games for it? You were hyping the shitty game on your profile pic. The system will be perfect for you

My wife loves Kinect. I had some fun with Wii cause of the games and would love Kinect to be more robust for more variety of games. But because it makes fat lazy kids get up and do something besides twiddle their sausage fingers on rotatable dildo's, it lost it's originally planned potential by MS.

#43 Posted by Gue1 (10223 posts) -

playing with a camera is just stupid because it provides no feedback. Move is better.

#44 Posted by PAL360 (26942 posts) -

No, Sony should keep the core as the main l/only focus. Actually, thats the reason PS4 is selling so better than the competition.

#45 Posted by iwasgood2u (819 posts) -

Although sony are known for hardwares quality..... their software is just decent. You need both hardwares and softwares for it to work correctly. Have you played with sony sixaxis before on lair? Look how horrible that was and no way sony can perfect the kinect. TC its better to let kinect die. Better yet have it implement on the iphone and android phones. Smartphone owners will welcome it. They dont have high standard in graphics and the horrible digital gamepad for fps and action genres. I hate playing any games on a phone unless its racing or rpg.

Kinect would not have been as successful if SONY had done it, it was only through seriously aggressive marketing and a ton of money on Microsofts part that it even took off the ground, SONY is no good at aggressive marketing and they just didn't have the money to sink into the R&D that Microsoft has.

Kinect is not dead now because of Microsoft, it would be dead on any platform, it's dead now because it was just a gimmick the novelty of motion gaming has worn off which is why Nintendo didn't push it beyond the wii.

Gamers killed Kinect, Gamers don't like gimmicks and SONY did the right thing not pushing Move full on, they would have sunk a ton of money into Nothing which is essentially what MS have done with kinect as nobody really wants it now.

Microsoft tried to change the way we game, thank god they failed imo.

Ps SONY would never have made it work as well as MS because Kinect is more about Software algorithms than Hardware and as far as software goes MS has SONY beat by a mile.

Kinect is a bit more than a camera mate and is far more advanced than Move.

they are both lame for gaming either way you want feedback stick with a controller with Rumble, you know, that thing that SONY said was too last gen so everybody had to go out and buy news controllers just to get it on the Ps3 after Fans backlashed.

#48 Posted by General_Solo76 (244 posts) -

I guess you and Microsoft must be the only two who didn't get the memo......Nobody wants Kinect for games, and I mean nobody. I can't stress this enough.

#49 Edited by SolidTy (43865 posts) -

Sony was offered Kinect technology and turned it down way back in the day.

They might be able to crank out a good quality first party title for it considering their studio power, but ultimately I'd rather them not bother.

Xbone should have had a AAA 1st party Kinect game at launch, that's for sure. Relying on 3rd party Developers to hopefully make something of the device was a mistake and ultimately resulted in backlash for the forced inclusion.
