    Why have you been paid to create a trolling article about Kinect? It will improve gaming. Obviously, most people don't want to have to stand up and do a dance every time they want to reload on COD, but little things could be incorporated, which will make the games much better. PC gamers have been using IR technology to do pretty much the same thing, but just with head movements and not full body movements, for ages. I would love to be able to tilt my head to peak round corners Corvo style, and SmartGlass will be fucking awesome, sorry, is fucking awesome. Just look at its uses in Forza. Having your tablet as a GPS isn't necessary, but it just adds a little something extra to the gaming experience.

    Isn't the Aiden Pierce one actually talking about SmartGlass and not Kinect. Kinect can't hack into your phone, but if you're in the SmartGlass app, you'll be able to do this stuff.

    Great i totally agree even though with these enhancements the kinect would totally be staking you for the entire time.

    Jesus... this was a great article. That first panel had me going. I was like, "THE FUCK IS THIS?!" Then laughter ensued. Thanks for that, I needed it. ;D

    You manage to make the article both serious and a joke, Great job lorenzo and great choices XD

    I can't wait for the kids they bring out at E3 to do exactly all of these things on stage. FIST BUMP

    There is a severe lack of American History X kinect curbstomping in this article. 6/10 needs improvement.

    I pray to God that No More Heroes never comes to an Xbox console. That aside, this was an amusing article.
  • PanicJester - June 5, 2013 10:14 p.m.

    It all ready has, It was released in Japan back in 2010.
  • Frieza - June 6, 2013 7:37 a.m.

    Oh yeah. I totally forgot about that. Thanks for pointing that out.

    Now that needs to be an achievement is to do the Crash Bandicoot dance in front of the Kinect!

    This is funny.

    First, all of those points rely on assuming that the Kinect 2.0 delivers on it's whole promise and potential. Which, seeing how the first Kinect turned out, is on it's own very doubtful... Secondly... Even if it actually COULD deliver all of this. Would you really want to? All of what's mentioned above aside from the whole emotion reading thing can be perfectly replicated with much more precision and less effort with a controller. That's the whole crux of why motion gaming, even if it did became 1:1 precision simply doesn't work to replace what most games can already do. I mean, sure, it sounds like a fun novelty to mimic the movements of your character and kick or take cover at first... but I want you to keep wanting to do that shit constantly for more than 2 hours straight, and tell me that it's still fun. Again, the only thing here that shows any kind of true potential value is the whole emotion reading thing... And I'm sorry, but I'm not going to believe it works as it's claimed it does until I see it. I'm willing to bet that it won't work nearly as well as MS is promising it will.

    *breathes* Ok, ranting aside, the article itself was pretty amusing, props to you Lorenzo, for taking those pics, they definitely made me smile and chuckle XD
  • wiitard07 - June 5, 2013 2:34 p.m.

    Would the a watchdogs thing not be cool? Come on. Of play the shit out of that. Unfortunately even the article won't take this seriously just because it's a form of motion control.
  • wiitard07 - June 5, 2013 2:36 p.m.

    Sorry about the atrocious grammar there! phone typing man...
  • UltimateZeldaFanboy - June 9, 2013 10:49 p.m.

    I thought the exact same thing, using the Xbox Smartglass I think it would actually be pretty dope to use your actual smartphone to hack the devices around your avatar.
