was it worth the wait

hey guys want some opinions from you lot. like so many others i got kinnect when it came out. but now starting to think should i have waited. sure dance central and kinnect sports are lots of fun. but looking at the future release schedule has left me wondering. a brain trainning clone hmmmm not sure. then we got a game that looks truly awful and has been done before in be in the movies or whatever there calling it. star wars could be ok!! but come on dance games and keep fit games surely there's more to it than that

I am addicted to bowling on Kinect Sports, and Boxing also rocks! Beats the pants off anything on the Wii IMO.

My family played with Kinect Adventures when we first got it it. Nothing for Kinect has been in the XBox since then. I kind of wish I hadn't bought it, and bought the one with the Hard Drive instead.

i like the kinect, but yeah... i really dont know about its future. i think its gonna go the same course as the wii, a few great games but a lot of junk... i was going to wait, but got it as a gift so i wasn't complaining.

well if we wanna see more gamey type games surely you need more periphials than just waving at the screen. guns to point at the screen etc there are other threads elsewhere saying what sort of this and that do you wanna see on kinnect. im just saying look at the release schedule people only thing that even slightly raises my eyebrow is children of eden and the star wars game. anyone else seen something i may of missed

I personally think it was. I was skeptic at first until I tried it. Sure it can be worn out after playing it forever but at the same time its less of a gimmick than the Wii is (This coming from a Nintendo fanboy). Sure it is glitchy but at the same time it is almost spot on.

Yoostar (the game you are talking about being like in the movies) is just going to be ridiculously fun and insane. In the movies is going to pale in comparison to this game. The Kinect beats the Vision cam any day.

The next big hit for the Kinect is going to be the Gunslinger (or w/e the title is by Twisted Pixel) it is really going to show off what the Kinect can do and this is all going to be from an Arcade Title.

Also the Star Wars game does have potential and is the main reason I bought the Kinect.

I am completely satisfied with my purchase and enjoy Kinect Sports immensely either by myself or with my one friend online.

the gunslinger game sounds like it could be fun. but youstar really don't float my boat unless it's cheap as i suspect it'll be 40 quid+. and will wear it's welcome out in a matter of days unless you always play with a big group of mates.
i guess it's still new and time will tell but i thought microsoft would still be ramming down our throats what's to come but just seems all a bit quiet

I enjoy my 3 Kinect Games (Adventures, Sports, and Your Shape: FE). Definitely there will be better games to come along, especially Gunslinger (XBLA on-rails cartoon shooter, looks awesome). But I definitely think that it kinda sucked that the ~10-15 release games only consisted of 3 categories (2 if you count the dance games in the sports cat.)

Money is not an issue to me, but a good time to buy the kinect was around black Friday. What I wish the box had said was that you would need 6 sq ft space to play.

I love my kinect! Using that way more than the Move to ps3. Got 4 games: adventure, your shape, dance central and biggest looser. The first 3 are great, biggest looser not so much. But i think it could be a great year for kinect.. at least i hope so!

I bought the Kinect at Launch and so far I've played Joy Ride, Kinectimals, Kinect Adventures, Dance Central, and Fighters Uncaged. Kinectimals was cute and is fun to put in once in a while. KA and DC are both enjoyable as well. as for JR and FU, they can burn in hell. Nothing else I've seen is worth playing so far.

As was said, the Kinect needs more peripherals. I understand it's being marketed for Hands-free gaming and I know the 360 controller would never work with the Kinect, but there's a reason the Wiimote was designed the way it was. It made hand movements simplistic. MS needs to change their marketing pitch and, at the very least, develop a nunchaku clone to give us an analog stick and maybe 3 or 4 buttons for basic functions. This thing won't survive long on rail shooters and mini-game compilations. Fortunately Steel Battalion and Star Wars both have some potential as does Children of Eden and a couple of the other announced titles, but there's not nearly enough to expect yet (and MS is surprisingly mum on any exclusives that are in the work.)

On the bright side, we all know Peter Molyneux is working on SOMETHING for the kinect. Plus John Carmack (the DOOM guy) has said he's throwing around ideas and wants to make a game for it as well, so that's bonus potential. Now we just need to get the arcade games to start implementing the kinect so we can get some small, budgeted titles to enjoy with the kinect in between big releases.

i must admit, i love kinect, however, i have a young child, so really and truely, target market, TICK!.

that being said, i do like yourshape, i enjoy adventures, and will be spending a bit more time on this in the next few weeks trying to get the achievementsup to scratch. but for the serious gamers, lets hope future games in relation to kinect come in the slightly more hardcore variety eh?

I dont know about you guys, but I got mine for christmas, and played it non stop for a few days after. Since then, i've played Kinect Sports probably twice in the new year. While it is cool to have, I just dont get a whole lot of use out of it.

Sadly I haven't bothered to use mine since the New Year. I do enjoy it, but when I get home from work and fancy an hour or two of gaming I really can't be bothered to jump around the room like a fool.

Child of Eden does look pretty awesome though. Here's hoping there will be some great titles that will encourage me to use it more!

(or maybe I'm just far too lazy!)

I have young children, and was the only real reason I bought it( and obviously I love "new" toys :P), although was fun for a while, my kids lost interest long before I did.
Was thinking about getting rid but I know if I do a game will come out that I just have to have, and have to get it back again. So while it sits there un-used and un-loved, Iam hoping something really special comes out soon, Very soon.

well from reading different reports it looks like this year could be pretty thin on the ground it's looking more likely next year will be the big year for kinnect. so question is should ms kept hold of it a little longer and perfected it till some truly five star titles were about

IMHO
I think they have done brilliantly..
Its the only human controlled game player thats affordable that I know of so far...
I am sure developers are looking at new games..
I just hope they make a shooter for it

We waited for a bit after it came out, but I kind of regret it now. Though I like some of the games, it is not as impressive as I originally had thought. Sometimes the camera is way too sensitive, and other times it has a hard time picking up movement. I also don't like the fact that sun light can mess up the camera and make it not respond.

Thing is not to place it where sunlite will hit the lenses...
But you gotta admit, Kinect is the only true full body human interface that is on the market to date....
I aint gonna knock it coz it's way better than holding a stick and waving it around like a looney lol
