You mean you have to use your hands? That's like a baby's toy.
"disappointment", "still in beta", or "the future sucks".
"the future is stupid" is an active tag that needs more love
Dissapointment would imply that somebody is expecting something good out of this thing.
How about a "mall technology" tag. This is so close to the piece of shit 3d machines that cost like 15 bucks to play.
This looks stupidly frustrating.

I feel embarrassed for the rep running supervising the demo.
This reminds me of those shitty lightguns that used to come out with every damn system.
I'll be honest with you guys. I love stuff like this. I don't just want kinect to fail, I want it to bomb so badly it almost destroys the 360. That way, any time some in video game development suggests annoying motion controls, someone on the team will speak up with "Woah, woah. Don't you remember that Microsoft thing? Kimple or whatever? That shit almost ruined them, were not going down that path!"
Seems microsoft ignored the memo with sony's eyetoy. That and the fact that something like the wii mote actually works.
Oh, hell fucking yes me too. From the very first Project Natal video to Molyneux masturbating over his prepubescent-boy-interaction simulator to now this, every single new whiff of Kinect news has filled me with such unspeakable schadenfreudy glee.
Oddly, the person who came to mind to describe my feelings best is Jeremy Clarkson, from ten years ago, on the BMW C1:
It's "good" for mini games, and that's it. I actually kind of like move's sports champions, and think I'll pick up dead space 2 on the PS3 for similar reasons. But having a few buttons and a joystick helps a ton. I also like that I didn't have to buy a nunchuck, and can just use half of my ps3 remote with my left hand.
I'm pretty sure they will actually say "Remember the Wii and the shit load of money everyone made with zero effort mini-games?" whenever they think of motion control.
Here's the thing with the wii:
-It came at the right moment
-It came with a fair price
-Happens to have an actual control, that works
-Comes too late
-Works with a console that keeps burning itself
-Has shitty rehashed games that the wii already has
Fuck this shit. I want to sit, relax, and play a game. Not wrestle with god damn motion controls and shit and basically go to work to play a video game.
Seriously, MS is trying to sell Kinect on bullshit like "oh man, waving your hand around is SOOO much easier a way to interact with the dashboard than clicking the d pad."
Most of the people who like the idea usually mention how movies and the dashboard can be done more than the games. One guy I know is actually really excited about how Fable 3 will recognize if you're the same player as last time, and welcome you as such, and 'alter the game' if it notices other players are watching and enjoying the game with you. This is all Molyneux babble though, mind you.
Will it be able to recognize that I'm pushing 30 and advise me to leave the house and find a girlfriend?

bwahahahaaaa!! that sucks sooo much!! the kinect users look like they are writhing in discomfort!
HEY GUYS, THERE'S A GAME THAT *REALLY* NEEDS A JOYSTICK AT 1:05, AMIRITE?
:26 seconds in "I mean I warned you guys" followed by the guy getting frustrated, walking away and saying "I don't know, this is fucking retarded" All of my stars for that.
While this looks like shit, I don't really have any strong opinions on the Kinect at all. If it can do something new and fun, hooray.
