‘Go and have a go’ at Kinect, says Rare

Posted By | On 28th, Aug. 2010

Rare Kinect development head, Nick Burton, wants core gamers to give Microsoft’s new motion sensing camera a chance before dismissing it outright as casual and gimmicky. “All I can say to the core is go and have a go. It doesn’t even have to be necessarily Kinect Sports. Go and have a go on Kinect, period,” Burton told Eurogamer.

He says negative impact against the announcement of Kinect seems pretty understandable at first, but one has to experience it first hand to truly realize how good Kinect truly is.

“Until people play Kinect, and they play it for more than a couple of seconds, which is unfortunately practically what you get in the trade shows… But you know hardly anybody’s getting a chance to play it,” he said.

“It’s one of those things you’ve got to have what I call your Kinect moment, when you realise… And we see this, we saw it at gamescom and E3, people go, ‘Oh, it’s way better than I expected. It’s way more high fidelity than I expected.’

“But when you’re looking at a video on the internet and you’re reading the write-ups, it’s very difficult to get, well I think it’s probably impossible to get that feeling.”

He also has a lot of confidence in the fact that once Kinect releases, the guys with the highest Gamerscores for Kinect games will not be casual, rather hardcore.

“You watch the Live leaderboards when these things come out,” he said. “There will be people… We’ll be there going, ‘How the hell have they gone that fast?’ or ‘How have they got that big score?’ That will be the hardcore doing that.”

I agree, Kinectimals is the most hardcore game I’ve ever seen.
