The Honeymoon is Over
Below are my concerns about purchasing Kinect. Can anyone convince me to jump in? I am still on the 3D depth fence. Leave a comment to help me allay any fears.
Lag: I have read many different experiences on lag with Kinect. This is an area of importance for a core gamer who expects quick responses from input. Should I be concerned?
Space Required: The measured distance from my 42" LCD to the couch is 5'8". Should I buy a Kinect?
1:1 Controls: This could be a pipe dream. But on the whole, can Kinect be considered a 1:1 control scheme?
Core Games: The launch titles for Kinect did not spark my interests, in the least. It's all about the software experience, right? What can I, Joe Core Gamer, look forward to?
I must confess. If Kinect had launched with a hardware-based controller and 2-3 core games, I would have purchased the device immediately. Regardless of whether I had the space for it, or not.
Obviously, I am still not sold. I need convincing!
