An eye on the future of gaming? Probably not.

5 August 2010

See, the key reason why the Microsoft's Kinect will never catch on, is because it betrays the ubiquitous irony of video game players - you can be a shamelessly lazy bastard, and still save the world. The Kinect is just too much effort, since it requires moving more than your fatty sausage-like fingers and thumbs.

But controlling games by moving nothing more than your eyes? Now we're talking! You can maintain your carefully-balanced diet of crisps and Tizer, and still toss off the hours of your meaningless existence:

Brilliant. Except you have to take your eyes off the screen in order to play. And eventually they'll feel so tired you'll want to pop them out into a jar of warm oil. But apart from that, I mean. Brilliant.

    A lot of bollocks currently being written about what Kinect is and isn't and what it can/can't do etc. It has voice recognition. You could play a game without even moving your 'fatty sausage-like fingers and thumbs'. Kinect could be dead in the water before it's even released because of internet chit chat which would be a real shame as it has potential to be ground breaking - something gaming desperately needs imo.

    lets talk about this insanely overpriced pos eye-toy, that barely works and can only do eye-toy games
