    Journey developer reckons Kinect on Xbox One is "finally there"...

    Thatgamecompany founder Jenova Chen wants to make games that "bring people together", that "relate" to people on a "human" level. The new version of Kinect, meanwhile, can read your expression and handle up to six participants in local multiplayer. Would it be utterly, disgracefully literal-minded of me to suggest that Chen and Microsoft's whiz-bang peripheral might do rather well out of one another?


    Probably not, given that the idea seems to have occurred to Chen too. "A while back someone was asking me what I was looking for and I said 'I wanted to have an input device that captures the player's facial expressions and gestures and fingers'," he told the Telegraph in an interview yesterday. "I think the Kinect 2 is finally there."


    Wondering why you should care? Well, Thatgamecompany is the outfit behind superb PS3 game Flower, in which you drift through meadows as a gust of wind, scooping up petals and thus propagating a dynamic score. It's also the developer of Journey, a wistful, vaguely Biblical and non-combative adventure that utilises sneaky Dark Souls-esque online functions, pairing you off with other players as you explore. As in Dark Souls, communication options are limited, which makes the act of communication feel more meaningful.

    look forward to seeing what they can do with Kinect, should it happen.

    Kinect 2.0 in action.

    Kinect 2 is looking sweet. They have really reduced the lag. I can't wait to start using it.

    I would love to see what they can do, and interest me... I'm just not convinced they will.

    I feel the same way. The accuracy is there this time. I just don't see it fitting in well into the games that I play. I want more than just voice recognition. That could be pulled off with a headset if those devs decided to code for that sort of thing.

    It's not that easy as just having a head set that's capable. MS supplies a SDK for that. That's why some 3rd party games supported voice on xbox 360 but not on ps3. That made it easier. i'm sure xbox-one will be the same.

    I really don't give a $#@! about the Kinect as a controller or device in general. But I've also seen very little of the Kinect 2.0, and I was unimpressed with the results of the previous machine. And if anyone can really utilize the Kinect, it'll be creative development teams (basically indie) like those one guys with that one name.

    Maybe the new generation of gamers will take to it.

    I think us seasoned vets of gaming have been using traditional controllers since we started, so most of us are stuck in our ways.

    Sweet mother of Jesus. That is so much better than Kinect 1.0!

    Called it. Now they just gotta use this well in games and we have a key to the next-gen war.

    I don't actually think people can unplug it.. just saying. I haven't been keeping up with the news though so maybe they made it so you didn't need to connect it? I doubt it though.

    I don't want to use total motion control for most games, but i do like the improved voice recognition and the fact it can sense your mood and heart rate.
    Sounds perfect for a survival horror type game.

    Plus i have a family, party games can be really fun when everybody is together.
    Kinect 2.0 is looking like a nice feature for my situation.

    This is coming from the company who made a great PSN game using the SIXAXIS. But it was great despite the stupid motion controls, not because of them.

    I shipped my pants when I saw that video just now. Holy $#@! Kinect 2 is much better than I imagined with the accuracy and features. It's like what Kinect 1 should have been. If it is this fast and accurate, I may actually end up using it, if the devs implement it in a core way.

    I've always believed Kinect tech to be the best moving forward. I did say that Nintendo would have to come up with something better but did not know what it could've been...and didn't agree with their Wii U approach. I love being right XD

    Next stop: VR.

    From what I have read from MS, you CAN'T unplug it. You can completely DISABLE it, but it still has to be attached to the Xbox One.

    That's to make sure that, down the road, you're not without one. Because the developers want to know that if they spend money on a Kinect features, that it will get used or at least you have the chance to try it out.

    I wonder what games ThatGameStudio will make now, the majority of the team had be sacked just before Journey's launch due to budget mismanagement. I hope the quality of their output doesn't drop. They are one of my favourite developers.

    Killzone MP session followed by Flower is incredible.
    Maths is biased! It keeps telling me the PS4 is 50% more powerful than XboxOne!
    Great song, should have more views :'(

    Few indie will touch the Xbone until MS allows self-publishing.

    Is there really that kind of diffrent approach between sony and ms? It is a hard fail again if they lose this guys. I don't see MS gives to a dev special treatment.
