@tunaface, I read an article where wii had the same delay movement as the 360 kinect which was only off by some .02 seconds or something. But I don't know since I haven't played it myself yet.
Kinect looks fun, but I won't consider it unless they add some kind of controller support. They will not appeal to hardcore gamers unless they have a 1 to 1 movement ratio, and that cannot be done without the use of some kind of player controlled device.
I don't think all of the games for Kinect look great but as far as dancing and fitness go, I think it has a definite advantage not needing a controller. Mostly my wife and sister look interested in this which isn't so bad. It makes me feel better that I am not the only person using the system in the house. Once my wife likes using the system it helps me get more funds for gaming which is fine by me. It will be interesting to see how Kinect advances past this first gen of games.
@Mausolus totally agree with you not enough ppl are waiting to see if its any good me personally cant wait to get my hands on it
Microsoft and Sony wants fathers to buy XBox and PS3 instead of Wii. Sony went a bit futher trying to reach guys without kids as well.
Man the delay between your moves to the screen is HORRIBLE. Agreed. If I want to play the Wii I'll play the Wii that's sittin in the closet.
First gen games with new technology like this never reflects the long term evolution. I remember the first generation of CD based games, they were all interactive movies as if that's the only thing game creators thought they could do with all that extra capacity. Likewise the latest round of games on the Wii really use the controller in intuitive and fun ways that really work well with the games and enhance their experience beyond what a traditional controller could. In short, give it time before writing it off.
... I'm confused... If I wanted to play crap like this, My Wii wouldn't have been re-purposed to dust collection. Sooo... What exactly is Microsoft trying to accomplish. Never mind, I figured it out, they are trying to sell a cheap gimmicky pos to retards who will think they HAVE to have it until they get tired of it no more then a week later.
