Deadly Premonition had PhysX.

Also this game doesn't seem to bad. It doesn't sell me on Kinect but if someone said 'Hey wanna play some twister Mania?' I'd go 'Sure'.

Yo you like videogames? Ubi's got you covered (in shit).

Besides, how dumb is this - every single solution consists of either a. bunching up your body or b. stretching out your arms sideways. Some game I'd say, what magnificent gameplay.

Edit: Ok, so it's Majesco, whatevs. But damn does this look like a dumb ass Ubisoft joint all the same...

So are you saying that Arkham City is as good as Deadly Premonition?

Sadly, this was about the most "fun" looking Kinect game I've seen. That is actually saying something, considering the rest of the tripe that has come out for it.

So does the calibration look wonky because they're on a green screen with unnatural lighting, or is Kinect really this bad?

'This seems okay.' seems to be the general feeling for most kinect games.

It's possible to do it without dedicated hardware, the dedicated hardware just helps take the load off. Also, it can be used to just to simple physics. You can download "physx demos" that are just knocking static meshes around. Maybe a bit of cloth/ deformation stuff. It isn't all crazy numbers of physically siimulated particles. Though I haven't watched this so who knows? it's a pretty bad physics engine if you aren't going to take advantage of what it can really do.
