New Hacks Show Kinect Playing Call of Duty 4, Zelda, Doom
But that doesn’t mean Kinect hackers aren’t actually playing games with it, and a few new hacks show the controller making it possible to take on Call of Duty 4, Doom and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. We’ve got some videos for you below.
The hacks make use of some additional hardware — a Wii Remote with a nunchuk to do the heavy lifting of moving around and aiming in CoD, for example — but it’s cool to see that it doesn’t take an army of programmers to get us set up with Kinect-workable first-person shooters.
Okay, so, hacks are great, but somebody needs to start making these into games, please.
