    That’s interesting. Wonder how it will control on Wii U. Probably be a Wiimote+ and Nunchuck setup.

    lol fail. lucky zen pinball will be bringing the pain to ps3. wii-u is going to be the 3rd party system to go to watch. I see a dull future of motion gaming and mini experiences.

    as I’ve said elsewhere.. this is pretty much nofo not info. I wasn’t interested in an Avengers game based on the movie before.. still not. Mostly as an old school DC fan and partially because I don’t think that’s a game we particularly need. I’ll have to wait until I at least hear something about the game’s concept. Kinect, WiiU these are words that mean nothing to me. I wish we, as a community, would learn that specs mean nothing. It doesn’t matter if the PS3 is more powerful if the games are developed for the 360. It doesn’t matter if the Kinect is capable of tracking your individual digits if noone puts out a game that makes it fun.

    I’m happy WiiU is getting a game that will have a lot of push behind it but as a gamer this means nothing until I get some actual information.

    @wolfkin : I don’t really think the capabilities of the consoles is being doubted, it’s mostly because Kinect offers a bunch of kid like games and wouldn’t be something actually worth playing. At least that’s how I feel. Wii U means nothing because it doesn’t exist yet, so who knows…

    @pedrolabate I think i must have come across backwards. What I’m suggesting here is that people generally assume too much of Kinect. It has great technology, but outside of dancing games how many actual games are worth playing? Have actual gamer appeal? There’s a “Powered Up” game I saw some video of that looks I admit freaking fantastically fun but outside of that I haven’t hear of a single Kinect game (not just voice commands) that people actually like that isn’t flash simple (Fruit Ninja).

    Yet still people hear “Kinect” and a) too many people get excited and b) PR personelle expect us to get excited
