That's good, and all in all gamers win. But let it be known, Microsoft, we won't forget the stunt you tried to pull over our heads.

And as for me, Kinect is preventing me from buying the thing.

JokesOnYou1102d ago (Edited 1102d ago )

Well you didn't lose anything right? I should be more upset because despite the used game drm, after I found out more about their direction I felt like in the longterm things like being always connected would have been more beneficial overall for future games, game sharing was definitely better for me than selling games(which you could still do), so I lost and you won and I get the fact some don't want to be connected= ok cool but acting as if it was personal when more important than I am is childish especially when you they did reverse it for you.

The good news is Kinect is still there, which seperates the X1 from ps4, I think many are jealous of what they are doing with kinect and thats the real reason why they want microsoft to make Kinect optional to be more like ps4, I dont want it to be a ps4. No worries though with Kinect being intergrated in every facet of their strategy, and now Microsoft recently tweeting preorder sales are high fortunately on this ONE I get what I want.

Totally jealous of the Kinnect(-to-the-NSA) marketing analysis camera.

Totally.

Colzer011102d ago (Edited 1102d ago )

^You're jealous because PSEye will not sells, and will be forgotten like its predecessor.

Kinect is another case, many core games already supported it, even Akihiro Hino (CEO of Level-5), Hideo Kojima, and Shinji Mikami are interested in Kinect.

with Kinect already becomes mandatory, there's gonna a bright future for this tech. Even Microsoft already started the R&D that can makes us can touch the "3D object" from Kinect

"You're jealous because PSEye will not sells, and will be forgotten like its predecessor."

Move sold 15 million with a few low budget Kevin Butler Ads here and there.

Kinect had to have a massive FIVE HUNDRED MILLION marketing Ad campaign to make it to 20 million.

On Sony not putting too much focus on the camera... Meaning more core games and less motion gaming shovelware down the line??? COUNT ME IN!

Kanzes1102d ago

Did the old sales matter? I thought the new Kinect is mandatory, and the new Eyetoy isn't. And that's really gonna make a difference in the future, but in cost, people are gonna be suspicious by MS because the Prism and NSA thing.

For me, I don't really mind it wether is true or not, I have nothing to hide. I already live with almost 3-4 mandatory camera on my devices now, so 1 additional camera won't be a problem for me

JokesOnYou1102d ago (Edited 1102d ago )

@Skips, sorry but that's for each individual move controller, considering motion games tend to lean on the side of party type games then you need at least two for a multiple players and even some games require two controllers to play so those sales aren't impressive. Kinect on the other hand is 1 per household with over 24mil sold. Hate it or love it more folks just preferred Kinect.

GameNameFame1102d ago

Cloud is just marketing BS.

MS is offering dedicated servers. Its been used for a decade. Nothing special...just a super marketing to cover up weaker spec.

JustPlay41102d ago

Kinect 2.0 is no different then old one, if it is can so one tell me what make that so because I can't see it. FYI I want ps4 but I don't want a ps eye or ps move just saying

And the xbox fans need to get over the Cloud. No one can use it unless you have the best internet on the planet or you will get lag.

Now for all they say ms has better exclusives, let look back at the 360 how many new ip's have they had in the last 5 to 6 years (a full list not just halo, gears of war, and forza)

Skips1102d ago (Edited 1102d ago )

@Jokes

But with each 1 or 2, you'd need a camera. So that'd be like what? 7-10 million cameras sold? Considering they obviously wouldn't even function without them.

"to play so those sales aren't impressive."

Not sure how you can downplay those numbers considering all Move had were nothing but low budget Kevin Butler ads in comparison to Microsoft's absolutely MASSIVE FIVE HUNDRED MILLION $ marketing campaign. lol. It would be a complete no brainer for Kinect to sell more. I'm just surprised it didn't sell NEARLY as much than I thought it would have with that kind of marketing budget.

"Hate it or love it more folks just preferred Kinect."

I don't think it's because they "preferred" it. I think MS's drop in core support would probably be the reason for it "success".

When you don't have many NEW exclusives to play. What else are you gonna do on it? lol

^ Not sure if you missed this article... But it was a good read. Shows just how much MS preferred motion gaming over core games...

Are people seriously claiming that there are gamers who are jealous of Kinect?

Seriously?

Wow.

JokesOnYou1101d ago (Edited 1101d ago )

YES, very seriously....and its alot of the same ones who hated this entire gen on the 360 now stealth trolling like they want an X1. Its so transparent they just want Kinect removed because they are jealous of Microsoft actually being creative and taking risks with its popular xbox brand which I think many never expected. lol, I remember when some said it was the used game policy, now of course its just Kinect, yeah riiight. Micro is committed to and now they are evolving their vision of Kinect so many who dismissed it (some for valid reasons) are now taking notice with positive impressions= its in the media spotlight, core gamers are more interested. Some of course can't deal with this happening, envy breeds jealousy, xbox fans know what I'm talking about thats why got plenty of agrees on n4g which is unusual for obvious reasons. So to answer your questions question YES, those folks on n4g (the internet) I'm speaking about are definitely jealous of kinect.

UnHoly_One1101d ago

@Skips

"When you don't have many NEW exclusives to play. What else are you gonna do on it?"

I'll play all the multiplatform games using the superior controller and MUCH superior online service, that's what I'll be doing. lol

You guys seem to forget that there is more to a console than "OMGZ, EXCLUSIVES!!!!!1!1!!".

I buy both consoles, so I don't miss out on anything, but then when it comes to the stuff I can do on either console, I do it on Xbox because Xbox is quite simply a better experience than Playstation.

Better controller, better online, better integration with my phone, or the web, or whatever. Pretty much just better at EVERYTHING.

But that's just my opinion, and I'll happily take all the disagrees I get for saying it.

BISHOP-BRASIL1101d ago

Playstation consoles have had cameras since PS2 and as Colzer01 said himself, they are forgetabel and never sold very well... Wait, despite having the option for a camera all along, we still don't buy it. What in that make you think we're somehaw jealous of Kinect? More like we don't care about this crap, specially don't care to pay 100 USD more.

JokesOnYou1101d ago (Edited 1101d ago )

bishop nobody is denying what ps2 had and I'm not saying everybody loves Kinect my point is simple, its not that ps fans cant buy a ps eye if they like but there is a clear difference in comittment and vision between each company. Now I think its completely fine for sony to say hey the controller is what we are sticking with because its a great way to play games= it works and nothing wrong if you support that, hell I do too. Now at the same time there are alot of ps fanboys, who don't want micro to be successful with a vision that says yeah the controller is the main device for interaction but we are going to incorporate Kinect we THINK it works, they are afraid/jealous/envious of this thinking because it just might be really engaging/sucessfull so they follow kinect desperately trying to convince others they should think as they do, its not rocket science if you constantly follow a product, a team, a company, a rock band you claim to hate only to say hey you guys music sucks, really you're just jealous of their success I think the cool term/description of people like that is also known as haters.

Cant remember tho, it never happened :/

corvusmd1102d ago

Oh blah blah ...why do people keep blaming MS for this "Stunt that MS pulled"? You guys do understand that Sony was (and still is on vita and Sony Tv) pulling the exact same "stunt" they just reversed policy before E3...right? It seems that there is this unfounded notion(among PS Fanboys) out there that MS is intentionally trying to screw its customers....yup that seems like the model of a multi-billion dollar corporation. Work your way to the top so you can make tons of money and be successful, then piss off all your customers. This kind of talk just instantly lets me know this person is a fanboy or clearly not paying attention

NeoTribe1101d ago

Sony didn't change anything pre e3. Your fanboy brain wants to convince yourself they did just so you don't stay mad at your beloved Microsoft. Sony said waaaay before e3 they wernt blocking used games.

Trekster_Gamer1101d ago

Sony has no room to say MS pulled this or that. When they was trying to sell people on the PS3 there was 2 strong selling points they kept pushing

PS2 backward compatibility.. they reversed that in a big hurry!

What about dual booting ??? They took that away as well!

MS did nothing but add features to the Dashboard!

Sony is to be trusted?

What about the time they was down for so long and then took 3 weeks to let people know there credit card info had been compromised???

edgeofsins1101d ago (Edited 1101d ago )

Sony was looking into it but they never thought of actually going through with it. Both huge differences. Just like they thought of going with Nvidia but never went through with that.

And what they found from thinking about it is that it is wrong for the customer and therefore wrong for the company credibility and profit.

ovnipc1102d ago

kinect will have great funcionallities. for me its a plus, voice commands, order a pizza just giving a voice command wile plying cod or any other game thats great. recognize user s i dont have to re map controller. hell yea..

NeoTribe1101d ago

Your not gonna be able to order a pizza and play cod at the same time with that Kinect crap. You dream these little scenerios up in your head and when it actually comes time to use the Kinect youll realize it runs like complete trash again. Microsoft released Kinect games that were BROKEN, and pretty much unplayable. What makes you think all of a sudden this thing is gonna cook you breakfast while giving you a hummer. GTFO.

quenomamen1102d ago

Fanboys already forgot they where bent over a chair.

Don't use it too much, leave enough power for smooth framerate.

i think both will be amazing devices but please no mandatory Kinect

Prcko1102d ago (Edited 1102d ago )

y,plz no kinect!

ovnipc1102d ago

you are one of does that fallow the wagon. Idiot.

YodaCracker1102d ago (Edited 1102d ago )

Kinect sets the XB1 apart from the PS4. It gives it a unique identity. I'm all for the Kinect. Without it, both consoles are pretty much the same. Kinect is an integral part of the console and if it's not included in the box they might as well not bother at all because developers won't take advantage of it and every feature has to be designed with the knowledge that some players won't be able to use it.

ShwankyShpanky1102d ago (Edited 1102d ago )

They can still include it in the box and not require it to be plugged in for the console to operate, which (sans a Kinnect-less SKU) is all people are asking for.

...theoretically, of course. They might have done something stupid like put the WiFi hardware inside the Kinnect. We won't know until they tell us why it can't be unplugged (should be a simple question to answer... odd that they haven't done so), or until it's released and someone cracks it open.

Edit: @disagrees... simple question: why (or why not)?

Colzer011102d ago

PS4 just PS3 with steroids

KillrateOmega1102d ago (Edited 1102d ago )

@Colzer01

The Xbox One is just the Xbox 360 on steroids...

Now, do you see how ignorant that made me sound? Lesson learned.

Hei-senberg1102d ago

Xbox got cloud and kinect..I think, that what makes different to PS4

rainslacker1102d ago (Edited 1102d ago )

Don't get me wrong, Kinect is a interesting device, and has some interesting uses both in and out of gaming, but shouldn't it be the games which set a console apart from the other? Kinect is really just an input device, and a motion control one at that. I seem to recall how most everyone thought the wii-mote, which was included in every box, and was a gimmick, then the move, then the original kinect.

So why now all of a sudden is motion control gaming the cool thing to have? Has everyone lost their memory and forgot that the Kinect is at it's core a motion control input device?

I dunno, maybe I'm just missing something, because before the X1 reveal I don't recall the Kinect or any motion control device receiving that much love on here or other forums.

Lets face it, most people on here clamoring for Kinect are still going to go with the tried and true controller. It is the most efficient and precise way to control games given how they are developed.

To close out perhaps you can also answer how the Kinect will actually improve or innovate on game play, since for the most part motion control on consoles has failed to prove it's worth this past gen. MS also wasn't too keen to show it's worth at their E3 conference either, which leaves me with lingering doubts.

trafalger1102d ago

"Kinect is a interesting device, and has some interesting uses both in and out of gaming, but shouldn't it be the games which set a console apart from the other?"

its the games and the experience. they can go hand and hand.

"So why now all of a sudden is motion control gaming the cool thing to have? Has everyone lost their memory and forgot that the Kinect is at it's core a motion control input device?"

because we may finally see the potential. the wii brought a whole new interest but was limited to its application and ability. now we can do things as simple as knowing whos playing and mapping your controller preference without any signing in and out. or we can use its gesture based features in a much more accurate way now.

"Lets face it, most people on here clamoring for Kinect are still going to go with the tried and true controller. It is the most efficient and precise way to control games given how they are developed."

we will have various options and some games may very well be kinect only. we need to evaluate each game on its own merits.

"MS also wasn't too keen to show it's worth at their E3 conference either, which leaves me with lingering doubts."

then continue to doubt, that is your prerogative. others will be more optimistic, that is their choice. either way nobody knows yet until its out. what we do know now is its 10 times as accurate and the camera is integrated into the system. it will automatically detect who you are and sign you in if you want it to. you could even hold up a code to it and have it automatically scan the item and not have to manually input the code for xbl membership cards for example. or you can look at your side mirrors while playing a racing game and have it track your head movement. there are many possibilities and with the new technology now they can be applied in a more meaningful way.

Xbox one should use the tv feature in game like walk Upto a tv in game and put it on.

Becuzisaid1102d ago

Now THAT is a pretty sweet idea!

elhebbo161102d ago

or the in-game tv show's you playing the game, and in the game your using the in-game tv... TV inception.

XboxFun1102d ago

Excellent article, the Xbox One will be a beast of a machine. Loving the Dead Rising 3 part, can't wait to get this game day one.
