Star Wars Kinect was worked on by 10 teams, 200+ people

I found this fascinating.

Imagine the number it will take to make that AAAA game.

Spark Unlimited? Aren't those the guys being rumoured to be making Battlefront 3?

Could it be a coincidence or...?

Doesn't surprise me. Microsoft probably said "make it work, at any cost" after it had been getting all the hate.

But it's our fault that games don't sell 3m @ $60

(this game will sell boatloads)

yet no new Jedi Knight. =(

Yup. They could make a new JK game with a fraction of this game's cost. Fuck, I'd "settle" for an HD remake that would get the Jedi Academy multiplayer active again. It's still my favorite online game of all time.

I could imagine that most of those people are 9-to-5 type individuals who just sees it as a job.


most of the outstanding games we all love, are done by people who sacrifice personal time because they care more about the game than other stuff like their families or health. they sacrificed... for us.

Isn't this the sort of shit that tanked the games industry 30 years ago?

LucasArts is currently internally making an action/adventure game, an open world RPG, and an FPS, which are all believed to be Star Wars related.

The first could conceivably be Jedi Knight.

Sad. Just think of the game, if it was serious? Like a Knights of the Old Republic type game. I want another open world rpg in the star wars universe! Fucking love that game. And don't suggest the new MMO. :p

I wasn't aware of the action/adventure game, but I was aware of the others. My expectations are set low, but at least there's hope now.

Most people are saying the game is fun to play with their babby. I don't think it's really a personal dedication thing.

I'm not woman from Ar who had chirlden, but if you have babby and don't want to bring it back to New York to rest maybe you play this game with it

Also, on sales: what did Disneyland kinect sell?

What vindication? The game is good for fans but that's about it. Kids too.

It will likely sell but that doesn't vindicate anything. It justifies the making of it but there is hardly anything redeeming from my perspective opinion.

Good for fans? No. Good for kids? Yeah. Game is gonna sell a shitload.

How the hell doesn't George Lucas stop this travesty from happening? Does he care that little about the reputation of his franchise? This game looks absolutely terrible in every way.

Doesn't kinect only support 2 people? So two of them aren't even really doing anything?
