…says Rare’s Nick Burton.
Burton told Eurogamer in an interview that he believes that hardcore gamers will be all over it when it gets released, despite that they may be saying to the contrary on forums. I am not sure if he was just punting his own game when he explained that he expects Kinect Sports to be big with core gamers.
He confidently told the site, “You watch the Live leaderboards when these things come out, we’ll be there going, ‘How the hell have they gone that fast?’ or ‘How have they got that big score?’ That will be the hardcore doing that.”
Burton urges core gamers to try Kinect, saying that “until people play Kinect, and they play it for more than a couple of seconds, which is unfortunately practically what you get in the trade shows… But you know hardly any body’s getting a chance to play it”
Those be some bold statements Mr.Burton!
