    Looks awkward to me. Playing FPS without actually holding a gun.

    If you take a look at the footage on the TV's you can see that the users are having a hard time controlling the crosshair. What a shame, although I wouldn't play an FPS with anything but a controller.

    FPS will only ever work fantastically well with a mouse and a keyboard.

    Keyboard and mouse is the only way to for FPS games. [​IMG]

    That just looks horrible. The no controller thing is going to bite them in the ass.

    I imagine it's because they cut the resolution of the cameras from 640x480 to 320x200. Kinect can't capture finger movements at that resolution. It's a shame MS decided to do that...
