Cliff Bleszinski of Epic Games has vocalised his feelings on gamers who put Kinect down, remarking simply that "if you don’t like it, don't play it." Nuff said.
He admits its PlayStation Move he 'dogs on all the time' because of waving"two goofy-looking aeroplane-coming-in things," which also clutter his coffee table.
"If there gamers out there that are weird about it, like, what’s the problem? If you don’t like it, don’t play it,” said Epic designer boss Cliff Bleszinski at a developer session after Microsoft's E3 2011 conference, of which he was a part of gaming with Ice-T.
"I had an interesting conversation where one of the PR people pulled me aside and was like, ‘It has come to our attention that you might not like Kinect.’ I’m like, ‘does anybody read my Twitter feed? I went to the fucking launch of it in New York.’ I love it."
"This is so strange. It’s Move that I dog on all the time. I don’t want to hold the two goofy-looking aeroplane-coming-in things, right? Less plastic on my coffee table as far as I’m concerned is a good thing," he continued. Gears of War 3 was teased at the event but Kinect would only even be included if it didn't feel tacky he said.
"I've been asked about integration into Gears. If we had put it into Gears 3, considering the development time table, it would have been a tacked-on feature."
"If we were to get around to doing something Kinect-based, we would want to dedicate something to it and really knock it out the park and make it a Kinect game.” Kinect Funlabs has Bleszinski's eye too and he enjoyed the quirky tools.
