So, it turns out Kinect is using the infra-red projection, which can be seen by a camera.
You can think of it as a WiiMote merged with a sensor bar.

Huh. I was under the assumption that it was a heat-sensing camera. Hence the red blobs in the Your Shape ad.

EDIT: @ComplicatioN: Doubt it. The product has to go through a lot of testing before hitting the market to make sure it's suitable for use.

I wasn't really interested before I heard the news. I just thought it was a shame. but am relieved for anyone who wants this.

(I think the US consumer report is just as reliable as these rumors)

Except Gamestop is the troll of the video game market.
I think "gamespot: was misspelled.

On another note, I read a bit of the article and it said only the face-tracking has problems and shouldn't at all affect the motion sensing aspect of gameplay. But just the knowledge of some people not being able to use something to its fullest potential sets me off

On another note, If you fall into that group of people. you can possible do what Dave Chappelle does when he plays a Caucasian person in his sketches

From what I can remember, infra-red is extremely safe. When infra-red waves are absorbed by the body, heat is produced and that's it I think.

But the heat generated from these devices is often too little to be felt, almost negligible. So it is very safe, rest assured

    @Psionic Roshambo, The Wii U gamepads are tied to the console's region, so its impossible to find a cheap gamepad that supports your model.

    Unless you modify your system, of course, and remove the region check.

    @Xdqwerty can we discuss chrono trigger
  • S @ salazarcosplay:
    @Xdqwerty I like how the game had the middle ages 1000AD, the dark ages 600AD.It was great seeing the post robot apocalypse 2300 like Terminator and enter the matrix. some of mad max and fallout. 2300ad though it could had used more elements instead of just a generic ai uprising. It was a great idea for their judgement day to be 1999 Y2K.

    -great additions if they would have made an expansion or dlc in my opinion would be finding out humans trapped in a matrix -

    a follower having a cyborg character living tissue over metal endoskelleton like terminator, and the synths from fallout
  • S @ salazarcosplay:
    4After Zeal fell it would have been good to see more ancient eras. Perhaps Sumeria based in one area, then Egypt based in another area, Greek based in another area, then roman based in another area before the middle ages.---------

    ----between 1000ad and 1999 is a big gap they should have had the age of revolution like the american and French Revolution

    then the cowboyy era in one area of map and the Industrial revolution/age of enlightmentthen a ww1 and ww2 and a cold war era
  • S @ salazarcosplay:
    they could have added 75,000 bc like assassins creed. zeal was already establish in 12, 000 bc , soething before the kindom rose
