Steel Battalion: Combines Xbox 360 and Kinect Control Scheme

Written on August 17, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor promises gamers to let them convey the feeling of controlling an imaginary tank with Xbox 360 and Kinect's combined control scheme.

In a world where game devs are doing their best to minimize the number of devices cluttering a gamer’s room, a tank simulator game like Steel Battalion can be questionable. However, Capcom announced at the Tokyo Game Show last year that Steel Battalion’s next release – the Heavy Armor – will harness the power of Kinect. This could mean that the game will let players convey the feeling on controlling an imaginary tank.

In Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor, you will take the role of Lieutenant Powers, fighting around the world from the comfort of your Vertical Tank. As for the game controls, the game apparently involves a hybrid of Kinect motion controls and Xbox 360 game pad. The physical controller is used for navigation and bringing destruction to your enemies. The Kinect, on the other hand, will keep track of your “upper body gestures” in firing up your tanks, when using the scope and switching over the vehicle’s gun turret.

The Kinect would also be used when interacting with your crew. This could mean that Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor would offer a co-op component of some sort. However, there are still plenty of details to disclose before its planned release on 2012. So just stick it here at All We Like.

The Right Time for PlayStation 4’s Release

Written on July 11, 2011 by Japhet Writ

When is the right time for Sony to release its PlayStation 4?

Recent reports suggested that Sony will be releasing its next-gen PS console, the PlayStation 4, as early as 2012. In relation to this, a SlashGear article by Don Reisinger is pushing that the company must unveil the PS4 as soon as possible. This is due to the reaction of Sony fans with regards to the new console, and the fact that PS3 is not doing well in the US. Moreover, the PlayStation Move was not able to caught the gamer’s fancy the way Microsoft Kinect did.

Furthermore, if Sony will bring out the PlayStation 4, it will divert all the talks about the company’s recent troubles with its PlayStation Network. If they could also time the unveiling of the new PlayStation console with Nintendo Wii U’s release, it may preempt gamers from switching to the upcoming handheld gaming device. Sony must also have to worry about Microsoft’s plan. However, there are a lot of PlayStation 3 owners who may have only signed up recently. So seeing that a new console is coming won’t please them — big time!

Hence, it may be ideal for Sony to release its PS 4 next year and be the first on the line. But they could also wait for their competitors’ next move before showing their hand. Would you like to see the PlayStation 4 hit the shelves next year? Let your opinions be heard at the comments.

Microsoft Kinect — Hacked and Cracked

Written on November 08, 2010 by B Waldorf

Comments Off

even before it heated up a lot of people in the universe, a very persistent not to mention great hacker who happen to have hacked the PlayStation Eye in 2008 has opened up Kinect. Surely he can earn a good fortune from this, but the genius isn't into money. Jump into the video to see how it goes.

Sorry Microsoft, your Kinect has been opened already. A motion sensing camera is ready for battle and displays a real time accelerometer data on a hacker’s PC. The NUI group member apparently had the glory which was not actually his first stardom. He was actually the one who hacked PlayStation Eye in 2008. The $2,000 prize Adafruit is offering isn’t enough. He aims a bigger lot and hopes to integrate in into the company’s commercial visualization CL Studio Live.
