Kinect will launch with these 19 games :(

Post by happyguy151 » Mon Oct 18, 2010 10:36 pm

Kinect Adventures (Good Science Studio/Microsoft)
Kinectimals (Frontier/Microsoft)
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 The Videogame (EA/EA Bright Light)
Game Party: In Motion (Warner Bros. Interactive)
Dance Central (MTV Games/Harmonix)
Your Shape: Fitness Evolved (Ubisoft)
The Biggest Loser Ultimate Workout (THQ)
EA Sports Active 2 (EA Sports)
Zumba Fitness (Majesco)
Get Fit With Mel B (Black Bean Games/Lightning Fish)
DanceEvolution (Konami)
Dance Paradise (Mindscape/Smackdown Productions)
Kinect Sports (Rare/Microsoft)
MotionSports (Ubisoft)
Sports Island Freedom (Konami/Hudson Soft)
Kinect Joy Ride (Big Park/Microsoft)
Fighters Uncaged (Ubisoft)
Sonic Free Riders (Sega)
Crossboard (Konami)

It is a pretty pathetic line up with 5 fitness games, 3 dancing games, 3 sports games, 1 virtual pet game, 1 snowboarding game, 1 hoverboard racer, 1 fighting game, 1 driving game, 1 party game, 1 adventure game and Harry Potter.

What is everyone's thoughts on Kinect? personally for me there is nothing that interests me in the slightest at the moment.

Microsoft are going to be spending a whopping $500 million dollars advertising this thing, which is ridiculous.

How fickle gamers are. When the Wii launched, with an equally thrilling collection of games as far as I was concerned,it was heralded as a revolution.

For what this thing actually is that's a fairly decent launch line up. Can't honestly expect there to be some revolution of Kinect games from the get go, developers need time.

Not exactly the most brilliant line up of games. I think it'll be a while before we see anything approaching a killer game for this, possibly Rez 2? Speaking to a friend who works for Blitz Games Kinect has alot of flaws and it might be worth holding off for a while before picking this up. Hopefully the price will have gone down as well.

I've got the Wii, that'll do. Until something 'big' comes along, I'm steering clear of Kinect.

That's because at the time it was revolutionary, 4 years later it's we've seen it all before. Sony and MS have had that time to get their act together and release flawless systems but it seems they've finally seen that Nintendo had a product people want which set a fire under their arse, and in the rush have produced a load of bland rubbish...maybe because that's what sells on the Wii, maybe because it's easy, either way they're out to make a quick buck.

The fact that EA is there from the start is a massive plus , regardless of the quality of the line-up

I haven't the space in my games room to get enough out of this to ever bother considering it, but we all have to accept that Dance Central from Harmonix is going to be a killer app and the Sports and Fitness games are potentially the same for the market this is being aimed at. I mean, the latter two probably don't even have to be any good in order to be massive.

There's a lot of shovelware there but there's also enough to make Kinect the big thing this Christmas, annoying as the idea is. That being said, the Sonic game will be another dent to the rep and we'll wonder why Sega went to the trouble of announcing the removal of all mediocre Sonic games from shop shelves, obviously.

It's just not for me. I got bored of the Wii after a while and I'm even more likely to get bored of this overpriced eyetoy. Also on a side note, isn't it always said NOT to make any judders or vibrations near an Xbox360 with a disc in it?

I predict many scratched discs of that Dance Central...

It's official then. Microsoft are chasing Nintendo's coat-tails.
