Man plays Max Payne with impressively hacked Kinect. Needs controller regardless

But here you have it. Two of the hardcore's most derided things used in harmony to play one of the hardcore's most venerated games. Click and you shall see.

And in case you're thinking of callingfalsehood, lies and deceit on this one (and presumably haven't watched the video right to the end), yes, he does use the nunchuck analogue to move for some of the video, but note that he does eventually demonstrate hands-free control as well. Though without any aiming or shooting. Sorry again, Microsoft, but we have been explaining the importance of buttons for a long time.

It seems that there's increasing evidence that Kinect is actually a pretty damn natty bit of kit. Just a shame then, that none of that evidence is coming from any official sources. Maybe MS should just cut Kinect loose and let the hackers take charge of the system from now on.

Long-time GR+ writer Dave has been gaming with immense dedication ever since he failed dismally at some '80s arcade racer on a childhood day at the seaside (due to being too small to reach the controls without help). These days he's an enigmatic blend of beard-stroking narrative discussion and hard-hitting Psycho Crushers.
