I was happy with the Kinect demo’s I experienced at E3 in general and while some of the games had noticeable lag I was looking at the device as an awesome control scheme and then something fun for the family.
So I have to admit that I am surprised by Microsoft’s Ryan Moore comments on CVG where he states
â€œYeah. I think we know that hardcore gamers will be the first to go out and buy it, â€œ
Over the past couple of years you would find it very difficult to find a hardcore gamer that thinks the Wii is a great console and now that Kinect has gone one better and removed the control entirely I would expect to find less hardcore gamers singing it’s praises.
The games that worked great on the Kinect were Fitness titles and casual fun gamesâ€¦ Joyride was the closest hardcore title that I tried and I would have to say that was the least impressive of the games I triedâ€¦ and Joyride is not a hardcore title by any stretch of the imagination.
