    Kinect

    One of the big announcements at E3 has been Microsoft's Kinect (formerly Natal), which (as I'm sure most of you are aware) is a motion-tracking peripheral that is a general competitor with the Wii and Sony's Move. Since some of the launch titles for the device are simpler games, a la Wii Sports, I figured there should be one thread for all reactions and discussion for Kinect and Kinect-supported games. Of course, bigger titles that support Kinect will get their own threads.

    My opinion?

    I don't really care, at all.

    I'm sure there will be a few games for it that I'll want and that will be cool, but I have no plans to get one. I do NOT want this to be how games are played in the future.

    OK Yeah, I DO want that to happen.

    I want Kinect to be able to hook up to my computer.

    Kinect + Computer = Something awesome.


    Right now I'm more interested in Fable 3 but I might as well watch all this Natal stuff.

    The technology itself is of course fascinating, but I personally don't give a shit about the coming wave of casual-gaming bullshit that this and the Move will bring to the two systems that casual gamers tend to ignore. Outside of the most frivolous and idiotic consumers, I can't really imagine who's going to get excited about this. My rational side tells me that people will still get in fistfights over the fucking things on this year's Black Friday, only to bring them home and use them once or twice to play virtual bowling before going back to Bejeweled and Mafia Wars.

    As long as SF5 doesn't need this shit, I'll be good.

    It's just like when Nintendo made the change from Revolution to Wii. People thought they were fucking with us.

    Besides, Natal -> Kinect isn't as bad as Revolution -> Wii. It's much harder to make penis jokes with Kinect, at the very least.

    I know that it's just Wii is a simple name for a simple machine, Kinect? I still can't figure the reason behind the name. At least Move is a bit more appropriate as you know, you "Move".

    'Kin-' just means motion, like kinematics. '-ect' must have something to do with making a stronger connection to your inner stupid.

    I think it's supposed to be a double word play on "Connect", and Kinetic energy.
