Your Opinion Sucks Sequel: This is True
Hey, remember that guy who whined about the Move looking like a sex-toy? Well he’s posted his opinion on the Kinect:
There’s no real morbidly idiotic lines this time. The article merely shows yet another part of the problem with motion controls, one that has been bugging the crap out of me. See, no one looks at motion control from a gaming or functionality perspective. It’s always anecdote caked yammering about how they fare with casuals and their potential sales. To most gamers, motion control means nothing to them and that’s terrible.
What he says is mostly true though: The Kinect has plenty of issues but it won’t matter because of the marketing campaign and it’s general coolness factor. The Kinect is a really neat piece of hardware, it’s just not very functional.
