I stand by my opinion that most motion control like this is bullshit and stupid.

having set buttons with some movement>complete movement

now, i don't know how good move will be, but so far wii>>>move>kinect

I've only watched a few seconds because I detest gametrailers.

But it seemed okay...

What's so bad about it? Please explain what's so bad about it ...all I see is hate, fair enough, but with no reasons. All I saw (from the beginning) was people moving their bodies and the avatars doing the exact same thing. It seemed to be working fine.

Ever wonder how buggy kinect is? Well BAM there it is!

This is basically eyetoy 3.0 and I have no idea why they are so optimistic and expect to sell this thing. Even SONY isn't planning on selling that many Move controllers/bundles and Microsoft has barely been pushing kinect either besides an ad here and there.

The video shows no lag or miscommunication between the hardware and the screen.

The bad animations on screen have to do with game engine issues which are software related.

My stance on Kinect has always been that the tech is alright but the games that utilize it are not. It's not any different now after I watched that video.

Someone needs to perform an exorcism on those avatars. On a side note, I have the same Metallica t-shirt as that one guy.

Also, meh to Kinect. Meh. I'm sick of complaining about it, frankly. I'm too tired to bash it.

The Master of Puppets T-Shirt was the highlight of the video!

I don't want to start anything, but you are in deep denial. How bout we watch the whole video, and not just a "few seconds"? The avatars were doing the exact same thing? Man, I didn't know us humans can TURN INVISIBLE and had 10 joints in our arms!

It was terrible man, face the facts.

Lol, I love this video! I love how one avatar literally ABSORBS the other and then quickly craps out another avatar. XD But this is what Kinect is capable of. Its a tech demo, and all its supposed to do is capture movement & translate it to the avatars. Do you really think a software giant like Microsoft made a bad tech demo? Or do you think the technology just isnt up to par? Tech demos show the technology.

That was.....
Who am I fucking kidding, can the game industry stop doing this? I mean seriously, no one wants to play with motion controls anymore.
I blame you Microsoft and Sony, for thinking you could ride on the coattails of Nintendos success.

David Wong from Cracked says it the core gamers fault.

Supposedly, games are getting low sales right now.

Because gamers will stop playing if they're isn't some new gimmick every now and then.
