Black and White for Kinect? Oh man that'd be awesome.

Quote:
LOS ANGELES -- Peter Molyneux's been busy the last few years making Fable and working on Milo and Kate for Kinect. But the one series we wanted to hear most about is Lionhead Studios' Black & White.

The last Black & White title, Black & White 2, was released in 2005 for the PC and Mac.

"The Black & White series is really interesting," Molyneux told UGO during a Microsoft event at E3 last week. "Maybe it is something I should re-visit, but that's just me thinking, here now."

When asked if he saw Black & White working with Kinect, Molyneux thought the god game's mechanics would work well with the upcoming hands-free motion control system.

"The original Black & White -- with the hand, reaching in and touching and stroking, you can really factor that with Kinect, and it could be really super cool," he said. "It's purely me just thinking about it, and thinking about what Black & White means. I love the idea of that connection the hand gave you into the world, the feeling of power, the feeling of nuturing."

However, Molyneux was quick to state that he's not currently working on Black & White right now. "The trouble with being a designer now is that there are way too many ideas than there is time to develop those ideas," he said. "I would love to do something like a Black & White again. I would love to do a Fable 4. I would love to carry on doing Milo, but there is only a certain amount of resources and a certain amount of time."

Black and White sucked bad enough with a mouse and keyboard... with nothing to directly control with, it might be even worse.

That's why I just traded in my PS3 for a Lincoln Continental.

Does anyone know how to pair my controller with it though? ::

Black and White does sound interesting, but Hunt is right. It kinda sucked. I never made it past the 2 world thingy. :: Stupid creature somehow learnt to cast lightning at rocks and wouldn't stop.

So the tech specs have leaked and its oh so funny... The thing is technically behind the PS3 Eye.

Field of View:
Kinect: 57
PS3 Eye: 56 or 75

Camera Resolution:
Kinect: 320x240@30FPS/640x480@30FPS
PS3 Eye: 320x240@120FPS/640x480@60FPS

Audio Recoding:
Kinect: 16-bit audio @ 16 kHz (Unknown Quantity Array)
PS3 Eye: 16-bit audio @ 48 kHz (4mic Array)

So in short, if Sony developed the software for it they could do everything the Kinect could do and probably better.

Kotaku had a great article on this. They call the kinect brilliant! In short they slammed Sony for copying the Wii. Now that everyone is globbing onto the Wii Microsoft quietly copied the Playstation Eye and made you think it was something else. BRILLIANT!

Pitty you only quoted part of the specs, the specs are inaccurate, and Sony software always falls short.

Hey look!! I see more than one kind of camera! http://gizmodo.com/5562534/microsft-...close-so-shiny
