That was the only conference I watched so far, and what the fuck are you talking about?
It was painful to watch.
Well I only watched the first 10 minutes, but I was looking at the trailers and demos they showed, and I was reasonably impressed. Of course having not watched the whole thing I didn't watch all the stuff that probably upset you. waiting for the full conferences to go up on ign.
Kinect looked like casual trash. They did not show one true game other than an easy hold your hands up like your driving demo for using it as an effective controller. Sure you can hold your hands up like your holding a steering wheel for maybe 5-10 minutes before you get tired of holding nothing. Don't belive me? you don't need a kinect to try it, just load up a video of a driving game on youtube and hold your hands up like your steering the car. I couldn't do it for a minute.
I don't see any plausible way of getting a accurate shooter feeling for kinect that will please a hardcore gamer. In serious gaming muscle memory is key to virtually anything you can call skillful, you just wont get that same kind of feedback with your hands in the air not holding anything for any extended period of time.
I cant wait to see sony's conference tomorrow because they are marketing move as a motion device that does not always mean that always means having to flail around in front of your TV. If I'm using motion controllers to "enhance" my gaming experience I'd prefer it to be like how SOCOM 4 was played in this demo.
