The Kinect press kit info reveals that Microsoft's planning to establish the labels "Xbox for All" and "Xbox for Core". Is this going to be the official separation of Xbox gamers?
I don't know why people are saying MS are forgetting about the hardcore audience, they weren't allowed to show any hardcore games at the Natal event because it was for a commercial, a commercial viewable by "everyone" hardcore games will likely have a 16+ rating and wouldn't be suitable. At least its clear now that MS are catering to both
Vorekdor said, "Little big planet is not hardcore" Say's who?
it's 100% not hardcore. That's like saying viva pinata is hardcore because it some parts are hard .... it's a kiddies game with pretty cartoony graphics ...
So by your logic hardcore games have to have blood and cuts am I rite? Kill Crow?
like saying that Mario is not hardcore.
Do you also say that the sky isn't blue, grass isn't green, water isn't wet? Cartoony/cutesy graphics do not necessarily mean that the game is not hardcore. That would be like saying Mario Galaxy and Mario Kart aren't hardcore because of the graphics.
@Kill Crow What is Hardcore to you pal, shooting aliens in a SHOOTER Game!?
vorekdor..... you are a fool. .... i bet you think call of duty is hardcore... splinter cell conviction... fable... no. a hardcore game is challenging, deep, creative, expressive, unique, or thought provoking. hardcore games have one or all of these attributes. mario galaxy, smash bros, ratchet and clank, and i would wager that little big planet especially is more hardcore than any game you name. guess what? they are colorful, and cutesy....
Hardcore is less about the game..... Hardcore is more about the person behind it.
ms in one nite spent more money on the casuals then they did in the last 5 years buying exclusives and dlc for their so called core market. give me a [email protected] break, with their dollars going to casuals whats left. its not like they are Nintendo or Sony with 20-30 1st party developers all over the world
they got these sections now set up on facebook xbox for all and xbox for core
that's actually a really good idea, i'll give credit where credit is due. nintendo should have done a similar thing by giving less family friendly fare some type of color difference or something. the true gamer part of me doesn't like the segregation of the games though....games are games. i'm torn, but i do basically like the idea.
Dont really see the need, people are capable of establishing which games are suited/appeal to them. But MS know how to market their products so they must think it has it's place.
"Hey we set up this community for you guys we'll still cater for you" while they pump out endless amounts of bouncey ball games.
Now moms and boys gonna be happy :D
most poepl that looked at lbp as hardcore though but if they see a gun in a game its hardcorez
lbp not hardcore, try to beat all the levels without losing a life. Plus I would love to see a soccer mom try to make a lbp level. It's actually very complicated.
so i guess it iz hardcorez =3 SIMPLE, anyone who thinks LBP = casual a) never played it b) knows nothing of what the definition of "hardcore" means
10x more than Wii and PS3 combined So, who cares if they have some casual games ? It is not like crap games are not already out there, Natal is not the reason a game would be bad So, when i can have Fable 2-3, Gears 1-2-3, Mass Effect 1-2-3, lost odyssey, Kameo, Banjo 3, Risen, Two Worlds 2, KUF2, Halo 3 and Reach, Blue Dragon, Splinter Cell Conviction etc, who cares if xbox gets some csual games Maybe i like some of them as well, and the ways Natal could be used in hardcore games like RPG's make me drool It is only a win-win for 360, will get more customers like Wii, have the most advanced controls ever and amazing hardcore games at its base, cant get better than that Plus best online, best multipltforms, best controls right now, best price, full Backwards Compatibility etc
360 is on its last legs. haha deal with it. I remember you spamming the gametrailer forums with shitty fable 2 pictures and shitty kameo pictures. How does it feel to be permanbanned from there and that you are now roaming around trolling whenever you can. Lmao Flopple 2 failed hard. Kameo is a joke. Lost oddysey is shit. All rpgs flop on the 360. Its a shooters console and thats what it will always be.
Keep Crying El Bozzo you sound like an idiot
All of you confusing hardcore with main stream.
fail. I know this isn't for us gamers but I'd be nice if MS instead of spending money into this crap invest it on what gamers actually want... more damn games! Give it up, you're not gonna take on Nintendo, they got it locked down. Just focus on what you do best, shooters and hardcore games. Now Sony want's to do the same as well, it's like every damn company this year is having an indentity crisis.
In a twitter by Microsoft they said "Bye Bye Controller". Lol.. they have absolutely no sense about the gaming industry. A controller is THE trademark of gaming. How can u play a (decent..) game without any buttons? Doubt it is possible. Let them prove otherwise, but what they've shown so far, 'i'm just not buying it'.
they can prepare to crash and burn in a fire.
since otherwise its simply too much imprecision thats the problem with Kinect: human body movement is NEVER as precise as BUTTONS!!! (unless you are a black belt karate master with absolute body control)
All your Kinect ARE belong to us! -End statement
I think not. If a game is good, then a true gamer will end-up playing that game.
There's a lot of people confusing core for hardcore.
Another stupid try to catch the casual gamers
Sometimes I like core games, sometikes I play casual games. It makes no sense to divide the gamers.
Unless they can absolutely guarantee that the new redesign is RROD free... casuals won't give a sh*t. They will stick with the Wii.
just kidding xD still i hope this fails miserably
