Rare: Only using 10% of Kinect's total power photo



We all know that Kinect is capable of more than some of the current games show. Developer Rare really sounds like they're interested in tapping that power, which they call "virtually limitless." The studio says that they have only taken advantage of "10 to 15 percent" of Kinect's technical potential so far.

Rare recently took home a BAFTA award for Kinect Sports, and it sounds like they're still hot for the motion sensing technology. At a talk in London, Rare software director Nick Burton said that the studi's next Kinect project would take advantage of more of the device's features. CVG's coverage of the talk mentioned that the firm is interested in Kinect's layers of 3D infrared depth reading, ability to track body points and voice recognition.

I'd bet that Rare is going to show something really neat at E3 this year. I'd love to see a game that goes past what we've seen for Kinect so far. Less avatars and more immersive gameplay. When will we get up to 40 percent? 50 percent?

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Kinect, and Pizza Hut together at last

Dunno about you, but when I think of Kinect, I do occasionally think about Pizza Hut. And when I think about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, yeah, pizza (of the non-Pizza Hut variety) often comes to mind. These three things...more
