[Kotaku] Why I'm A Little Bit Worried About Kinect - Page 2

post #11 of 16
@Grizzleboy

I'd caution putting too much stock into positive reviews of game software and being some what dismissive of a contrary opinion. TW: Rome 2 is an example of positive reviews gone awry.

Back OT: I'm not getting an Xbox on launch and I've never used a Kinect with my 360 but, I'll get both in a few years. This is a cool concept and I hope it matures fast.

at least I'd think that would mess with me.

you can turn your head slightly and keep your eyes on the screen.

see this video as an example

From the title of this thread I thought they were gonna talk about the "security aspects" of the Kinect... and Microsoft tracking you by your facial recognition and stuff like that...

Heh... they wouldn't do anything like that would they... hee heh .... heh... hmmm... Really? /eerk

Sure, but when:

http://www.videogamer.com/xboxone/kinect_sports_rivals/preview-3474.html

Are saying the game works well in their experience, and there are live videos showing that the tech can actually do what this author is complaining about (again, pointing to a software issue likely linked to the pre-release code version of a 2014 launch title they were testing), I don't see why people would cling for dear life to that one negative experience as a complete representation of Kinect 2 (well I do know why they'd do that, but that's another discussion).

Why? that was horrible, I turned it on to see what it was like. It sucked, you remove your eyes from a focal point on the screen and lose focus, it's horrible dude.
