Okay, I just can't resist.

A minute or so in is a young girl who's body is recognized by Kinect for the first time, and she moves about excited by it. Here's what must be going through her head:

"Check it out, dawg! I'm dancing! I'm dancing!"

niceguywii603078d ago (Edited 3078d ago )

That's the first thing I focused on when she seemed more mesmerized by seeing the console displaying her exact double on screen than playing the game(dancing)

Can't wait to see some sort of boxing game and other stuff in the morning and following days.



He reacted like that because I responded to his trolling in the Cliffy B Kinect article while he was trolling, that is why his response in here doesn't seem to make sense and off.

But hurt kid. what did he say wrong?

-Alpha3078d ago (Edited 3078d ago )

Honestly, I'm just too damn lazy to play these games. How many of you are that enthusiastic and even that fit?

The last thing I want to do is come home from work or school and start playing Kinect games. And that I feel is the biggest obstacle for MS to overcome, especially for hardcore gamers.

These are demo titles, but I wonder about the full titles. I keep flip-flopping my thoughts on Natal's success towards hardcore gamers. I really hope MS doesn't shortchange us come Tuesday.

Edit: Apparently this is the event showing Tuesday. Can anyone confirm this??

Shang-Long3078d ago

Alpha I'm with you on that. And it's not that I'm lazy, I just got see it being all the fun. If they took this put it in gyms for work
outs. MS would bank for real!

SnuggleBandit3078d ago

that spencer guy really annoys me, i cant really pinpoint why, its just the way he talks or something

PS360PCROCKS3078d ago

I workout 5 days a week for 1 hour a day. I'm fit enough to do this, but even I don't think I want to jump around my living room.

Another One3078d ago

Unfortunately Alpha, they don't seem to be targeting you and me. They're marketing towards family game night. The people who come home and plays games to unwind are not who they are looking at.

It's unfortunate, but true.

despair3078d ago

yea I can't see spending more than 1 afternoon a weekend, if that much, playing a game when I jump alot and wave my be honest they haven't shown anything but that yet.

From the video the guy says the presentation at E3 will have games that are accessible to people, I read family games only, and thats a huge disappointment if true.

captain-obvious3078d ago

the vid is not working all im getting is that lame add

Army_of_Darkness3078d ago (Edited 3078d ago )

The response time is pretty bad in the gameplay (By that I mean what they show AFTER the 3 and a half minutes of PR footage). And it registers as TWO jumps half of the time.

Like 3:28.
First the character jumps with no instruction, then she jumps and he jumps and their avatars join them two seconds later.

MS dudes look kinda shady and that "family" looked like actors to me. This shit better not get popular for us gamers' sake.

Parapraxis3078d ago

The bits with the family are clearly done by a production company and hired actors.

beardpapa3078d ago (Edited 3078d ago )

the raft game doesn't show accuracy and precision since it's really just tilt body left / right or jump, which you could easily do with any device.

i think hardcore gamers anxious for kinect should wait a bit before getting it. See if it gets more than just the casual offerings that the studio heads are talking about, since they seem eager to direct kinect towards the casuals to draw them away from the hardcore image of the 360.

Occupant11383078d ago (Edited 3078d ago )

whoops. wrong reply. Errgh. Dammit. This reply was for seij555

Yeah, the MS dude looked slimy as hell, and the "family" was wayy too enthusiastic.

Occupant11383078d ago

Yup! I was thinking the exact same thing. That dude looks like a total slime ball. And the "family" looked WAYYY too enthusiastic.

So i guess that the new redesigned Xbox360 is real then because no one knew what "Kinect" mean't before that leaked image/video.

Imperator3078d ago (Edited 3078d ago )

I really wish MS would show some actual games. Games we would actually want to play. This is all casual stuff. I want to see exactly how MS plans to "revolutionize" game.

MiloGarret3078d ago

By making it casual of course, I don't know what people are expecting, but motion controls are all about the fake families smiiiiiiiiiiling...

freezola753078d ago (Edited 3078d ago )

now I've got smoke blown all up my ass!! Thanks M$ I feel the Kinection.... lol

sixaxis3078d ago

like wow,i mean... wtf were they thinking?? whos going to play these games? MS has to show some quality content at E3 for kinect. for now its like they took step backwards, plus it still lags badly. they better show some shooters or rpg, or racing game.

EVILDEAD3603078d ago (Edited 3078d ago )

Nobody cares if the supposed 'hardcore' gamers buys Natal/Kinect or even play it..

In fact, for 99% of the people who have been obsessed with hating on it all year long..arent going to play the hardcore games on the 360 either.

The video showed 3 types of people who also won't be playing Gears of War 3..younger children, moms, and girls in general..that's who they are trying to market too..

The bottom line is Microsft has a product that successfully seperates itself from Wii and may turn out to be the 'in' thing for kids and families if Microsft can pull it off

What people don't get is THIS is what it takes to really move systems outside of the normal clip Microsft has been used to. the casual market moves everything from portable gaming devices to cell phones..Apple and Nintendo have proven that if you carve your niche the casuals will follow

In less than a day we'll see the REAL games anyway

IHateYouFanboys3078d ago

bingo, great post EVILDEAD360.

lets not forget that so called 'hardcore gamers' are the MINORITY, not the majority. the Wii is generally scoffed at by people who refer to themselves as hardcore gamers, yet its the console thats sold 70+ million consoles, not the 'hardcore' consoles.

Kinect is trying to capture the casual market, and from what we've seen i think it will do very well at it. the casual market is HUGE, and mostly untapped. why do you think the wii went gangbusters from day one? because it appealed to the market that has never been interested in video games before. theyre the people that Kinect is going after, not the people who are on the internet having stupid arguments about how games are not 720p or how many copies a certain exclusive shifted in a week.

Didn't really see anything new. Video is new but still just showed the same old lame ball game and that boring raft game.


I know they didn't say new games or footage for the video. But I still don't expect to see anything new when the games are revealed. I feel most games they reveal will be just like these "mini games". But I'm still curious to see what they show and how that works.

NYC_Gamer3078d ago

this web cam loves to have people jumping around like some fools...

PRHB HYBRiiD3078d ago

come on i don't want to see no more of that family games stuff i wanna see a good game for the hardcore gamers

xtremexx3078d ago

crapgamer3078d ago
