Nope. I have a feeling it will end up like the Wii: 90% shovelware.
The whole problem with all motion control systems is that most REAL games are simply not possible
because you need to beable to perform more actions at once then motion control is able to allow for. Hence why the only games on systems like the Wii where it even remotely works half way decent is the same slop bucket of sport/party/sword/fitness/dance games (and if one looks at the lineup of current and upcomming Kinect games, guess what most of them are). Sure, in those kinds of games it works well enough. But the rest of the games play like crap because of that limitation. Look at Red Steel 2 for example, you can look/aim OR swing your sword, not both. Yeah, f'in brilliant; NOT
. Could you imagine if Halo played in a simmilar manor like that: Right stick aim or Left Trigger + Right stick Up to fire gun/Right stick Down to throw grenade, release trigger to aim again, repeat.
'course the Wii still managed to put buttons and a stick in your hands too, which was a slight help, but with this you just have two empty hands. How exactly do I go about running as I'm turning around, aiming, jumping backwards and throwing a grenade at the same time?
Oh right, there won't be any real games that would allow/require you to have to do anything like that for it.
What really sucks is that some of the games that allow the use of it as an option, like Fable 3, are sucky to play even with a real controller because the game interface had to be dumbed down to be compatable. Tho that is more the fault of the game for not supporting different controllers independantly, instead rather obviously, starting with kinect controlls as a base and hobbling real controller input on top of that. I pray other "compatable" games get it right.
Stupid gimicky BS that largely only appeals to the fickle casual gamer minority that will just as quickly move on to the next dumb-ass limited-use shiny object someone comes out with down the road. Comming 2012 the Ear Wiggle followed by the Fart Plug with pack-in game Virtual Trumpet.
