launch of Sphere which is rumoured to be coming out in February.

If it's only around 60 bucks I might try it out just to see how it supposed to work. If it's 100 bucks or more MS is insane.

heroicjanitor3074d ago

I hope it's good, but if the media blows up crap and fakes again like they did at e3...

Hutch23553074d ago

100 bucks would be a dumb move. 60 bucks would get the casuals they are after and some of the hardcore guys to give it a try.

IdleLeeSiuLung3074d ago

However, that is risky since casuals don't buy as many games!

Microsoft should choose a different name. Natal rhyme with an*l.

Haven't seen so much innovation in one product since the Halo series

can't wait for more info about the price

Darkeyes3074d ago

Lol seriously!!! There were better FPSes before Halo you do know that don't you (Hint *it also starts with a H*)? OH wait ah a console gamer only well ok carry on....

LastPlaceConsole3074d ago


i guess Half life is the king On PC and halo is the king On consoles

Kushan3074d ago

Really? Half-life's Multiplayer was that good, was it? I think you're confusing a great Singeplayer game with a great Multiplayer game.
I'm no fan of Halo and I love Half-life, but let's give credit where credit is due - Halo did a LOT for FPS games on consoles, probably as much as the likes of Half-life did for FPSs on PCs.

Darkeyes3074d ago

A little mod of HL which was later called 'Counter Strike' introduced millions of players to online gaming. Not saying it was the first (don't know if it was also), but it still is regarded as one of the best multi-player games ever created.... I never discredited Halo, but saying it's 'innovated' FPS on console is BS... Goldeneye did it and Halo made it better by actually making people enjoy FPSes by not making the controls cumbersome... Do you really think Halo would be as popular as it is now if it was on the PC??? I don't think so...

Kushan3074d ago

I never said Halo was above and beyond other PC games of the time, re-read what I said - it did a lot for CONSOLE FPS games. Yes, Goldeneye was fantastic at the time, but Halo brought Multiplayer FPS to the mainstream in a way that Goldeneye never could. You're right, they made it easier to pick up and play, they got the controls down, you say that like it isn't just a big deal but the fact that thousands of people still play Halo and most people have moved on from Goldeneye should show just how well Halo has done for itself.
Now don't get me wrong and even though I've said this before, I'll say it again - I'm not a big fan of Halo. I came from PC gaming myself, so I know exactly how so many people feel about halo - it lacks the depth of many PC games, it feels almost watered down, casual in many senses, but as I said I still respect it for what its influence has done for gaming as a whole.

Ice down the acne before bed, by morning it should be noticeably less swollen. Works best on larger pimples and smooth with PS3 dildo that have not yet formed a head.

Put toothpaste on your pimple before you go to bed, should help reduce swelling overnight. Make sure it is the paste not the gel. One of the most popular acne home remedies AKA the lord remedie.

Tea Tree oil can also be applied directly to infected pores.

Apply fresh lemon juice on the affected area overnight. Wash off with warm water next morning.

Drink plenty of water.

Pimple Removal : AKA Lord Shuhei Yoshida

Prepare for a small surgical pimple removing procedure. You'll need a small sewing needle, a bottle of alcohol, some gauze (or a small band-aid), and some warm water. Some people think you'll need to run the new PS3 dildo, but a needle through a flame will do just fine. This isn't Dr. Quinn Medicine woman. Rubbing alcohol will do.
Wash your face and hands before attempting to pop the pimple. Washing your face and hands ensures that all makeup, oils, germs and bacteria are no longer near the pimple you're about to burst. Also, dip a majority of the needle in the alcohol, and for safe measure apply some of that alcohol to your fingers and the pimple--dabbing with some gauze to dry the area.
Prick the white part of the pimple very lightly with the tip of your needle. Once you've done that, put two small squares of gauze on either side of the pimple and apply pressure with two fingers to ensure that the remaining puss is squeezed out of the pore, retaining pressure until clear liquid appears. When clear liquid or blood appears, you'll know the pimple is gone.
Wipe the pimple clean with an alcohol soaked gauze pad. It'll sting a little, but that's a good thing. The alcohol will kill most of the bacteria in and around the wound, helping you to avoid an infected pimple. If you wish, you can put a small, sterile bandaid on the area or cover it with an antibacterial concealer.

The end result will look like the avatar of lord shuhei above mines, oh wait that looks like a humongous pimple itself WTF...........

Unlike some people, I have not been so quick to dismiss Natal. However, that isn't to say I think its the "Next Big Thing". I just think the technology is extremely impressive, but I've still yet to see that "killer app" that could make or break it. I'm hoping MS pulls something great out of the bag in february, some game that I MUST SIMPLY HAVE, but if they don't I wont be terribly surprised. What excites me is the possibility that a lot could be done that we haven't even considered before.

I hope will here more "info" from the third parties .
