Kinect is amazing and very innovative, it's fun for the whole family. The Motion controls work so well and are so precise. It also has a wonderful game library, Sesame Street Kinect, Kinectimals, Star Wars Kinect (my personal favorite), Rise of Nightmares, and many other great games. It has such great support from MS (thank you so much, MS.) Seriously, why do you guys hate kinect? EVERYTHING is better with kinect.

I've never tried it so I can't judge, games for it though haven't interested me yet. Hate what they've done to Fable and I was a big supporter of the previous games. I like the integration with Mass Effect 3 and the new Splinter Cell, but I can't see myself shelling out $100+ (don't know the actual price lol) for it.

Kinect would be awesome... but it only captures large movements, games like Just Dance are *ok* on it but everything else..god its a pain. Plus a developer hasn't shown that playing on the Kinect is in any way shape or form better then using a typical controller. why use a kinect when everything is better using a typical controller. If the tech evolves then one day it might be pretty cool, personally Im more interested in things like the Oculus, I rather that be introduced and invested heavily on, rather then Motion Control.

Kinect development will inevitably lead to Oculus type innovation...Luddites almost invariably look down on tech in it's infancy

Good on you Platnium.

I had a Kinect for a while cos my Mrs wanted one. Had to sell it, our living room was a bit small, wouldn't work quite right.

I think that the audience at System Wars (myself included) is unlikely to be convinced Kinect is good, even though it has been quite successful for Microsoft.

Kinect, and it's concept of 'controller free gaming' could work really well if movements were very precise. It could well be a future input method for real time strategy games on consoles. A genre I'd love to see more of on gaming consoles, some people are unfortunately confined to 1 system for whatever reason, and these people do get RTS games (Supreme Commander 2 for example) but the controller as an input method, well, I feel it is a barrier to full enjoyment of the RTS genre.

Kinect faces many, many barriers to success.

For one, I, probably like you (by you I mean SW inhabitants), am dubious about it

Secondly, I, also probably like you, am something of a gaming puritan. What's wrong with pressing A to jump?

Thirdly, if - like me, you have given it a go, you probably felt that the technology wasn't good enough to support the Kinect experience eg - too much input lag, picking up on player's movements imprecisely.

There are probably even more barriers to it's success. A little snapsnot below of Metacritic's view of the Kinect library. Obviously, some games like Skyrim sneak in there, but really, it is dancing games etc.

Do you know what the most common reason is for people showing up in emergency rooms at the hospital....Cutting themselves from trying to slice a bagel..[ google it ]....I guess bagels should be banned...It's a Zionist conspiracy anyways just like Kinect
