Xbox One Dev Admits: I Can’t Count to 11

During an “Ask me Anything”-session on Reddit the Xbox One developer revealed that when tasked with mapping the hardware limitations of the new Kinect camera, he found that the device had more features than he was able to count. (Culture, Xbox One)

Update This is satire!

I'll just go ahead and say that it's satire right away. The website links to the original story.

Thank god.
I'm sitting here reading it wondering what the h£|| is this guy talking about. It just goes to show it is still hard to express yourself over the Internet. They should have at least put some something in their that showed they were joking.

Sad thing is you see real kinect hate articles like this that are serious, imagine that.
360ICE  +   276d ago
Haha, I'd think the interview gives it away though. I mean, where would you find a developer who says these things? The whole site is basically satire.
ZodTheRipper  +   276d ago
I thought it was pretty obvious after reading the whole article.
"The Pixeled Courier has not been able to find a precise definition of how much power ‘infinite’ is, but it is heavily rumored to be considerably bigger than eleven."

But I would suggest to mark headlines with [Satire] in the future because not everybody wants to read a whole article to find out it wasn't really news.

Good idea! Did that with this one already:

Or, in the description at least.

Well, this is a Kinect hate article, just a veiled Daily Show type of approach. You can pretty much spew all the hate you want as long as you say "just kidding".

What does he mean by Count to eleven? At first I thought he was speaking metaphorically, but now I'm confused.

"Thanks to the infinite power of the cloud, the Xbox One will definitely be able to count to eleven at some point."

When that day comes, take it all back Sony fanbois! Eat your words!!11
jeffgoldwin  +   276d ago
As much as fanboys are foaming at the mouth over the headline, it was just a joke. Save yourself the time wasted on clicking on the link.
Hicken  +   276d ago
Who's foaming at the mouth? Everybody in here is laughing at it, not taking it seriously.

Except you and Nocando and a handful of others who think "Sony fanboys" are taking it seriously.

Imagine that.
jeffgoldwin  +   276d ago
^^^sony fanboy who foams at the mouth at a dig on Sony. Then claims it to be laughing at joke when its a MS troll.

You have to appreciate the irony with that.

So... you accuse people of doing something.

Someone points out to you that NO ONE is doing what you're accusing.

That becomes proof of how they're doing exactly what you say they're doing.

You finish it up with claim of irony.

I'm sure you don't see it, but there's something wrong with your thinking.

nevermind lol
pabadamus1  +   276d ago
? That was stupid. Had to read the whole thing to realize it was poking fun.
devwan  +   276d ago
2nd paragraph "Kinect-features such as ‘tracing individual fingers’ and ‘watching you while you sleep’", surely the game was up at that point?
pabadamus1  +   276d ago
Lol. I thought those were legitimate features. I mean, it has night vision, the ability to recognize emotions, read your heart rate and gauge levels of interest. Is it far fetched to believe there isn't some data to be gleaned from watching us sleep? I dunno. Maybe I was a little slow on the uptake.
devwan  +   276d ago
:) Maybe. Who knows though, it might listen to you talk in your sleep and target some suitable advertising your way in the morning? Seems legit.
StockpileTom  +   276d ago
lmao imagine that... Xbox sleep study... diagnose sleep apnea and other sleep conditions!

Sony Fan grasping on straws ....I hope all of them take a minute to reflect on how silly they are sometimes......the fact that the article needed to be updated as satire says volume about this group.......

if you want them clicks and site money and such you need to please playstation gamers only. its called survival. these sites better learn that quick. xbox is done time for the playstation to shine yet again.
fsydow1  +   276d ago
The power of the clouds, damn these idiots never stop. Remember not everyone has a constant internet connection or can afford it. How is the power of the clouds gonna help you when you in a remote area playing games offline,stop this cloud crap please.
ironwolf  +   276d ago
Haven't read the article or the comments, have you fanboy?
jeffgoldwin  +   276d ago
Everyone who is relevant to next gen gaming has the internet. Sure there's prolly a handful that fall thru the cracks, but can't ever, ever please everyone, everytime. If you cant afford/live in some weirdo place, chances are you cant afford next gen gaming anyways.
fsydow1  +   276d ago
So if I don't have an internet connection and I play my games offline, my version will be gimped,is that what the Xbone is about.then helllll no on my behalf.

For those younger members the 11 comment is a reference to spinal tap the movie which is a mockumentary of an old metal band. Great very funny movie. Here's a link to the 11 part for ref.

It's sad that people have to be told when something is satire. It's even sadder when those people are upset at that fact, because they were really anxious to post negative comments.

mydyingparadiselost  +   276d ago
One time I counted to 11 and the resulting brain hemorrhage caused me to buy a Wii, which is actually pretty fortunate since my playing capabilities have been reduced to shaking things and smiling at bold, semi bright colors. Oh, time to wipe the drool off the keyboard...
