IGN: E3 2010: You Don't Have to Kinect

IGN: Though Kinect is the talk of the town right now, Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg, Director of Product Management for Xbox, claims nothing will change for the current owner that just wants to play traditional games.

And all along I was confident they would just scrap everything else and force us to use Kinect /s.

With the classy level of journalism IGN has shown lately I wouldn't be surprised to see them posting nothing but "top 5" lists in the coming future. Maybe they should partner up with, ironstarmovement and gamesthirst in a last effort to completely kill gaming journalism?

is not a catchy word not like wii, Wii is catchy, 2 syllable word isn't catchy for casual "in my opinion"

Tomdc2960d ago

I wouldn't call wii catchy.. I'd call it simple and a bit wierd but it's an alright name. This Kinect is pretty shit tbh though I preferred Natal. Move is the best name out of the three in my opinion name wise.

Cevapi882959d ago

remember the "Wii would like to play" ads Nintendo put out when the Wii just came out...that was a massive success...people were able to connect Wii with We, meaning its a system that you can have a lot of fun with your friends...the change was odd at first, but you understand where it came for Kinect, i cant really connect it to anything other than going off of my own opinion....hopefully MS will reveal the strategy behind the new name at the conference today

1 hour and 30 min. to MS's keynote

Inside_out2960d ago (Edited 2960d ago )

Kinect is an add on...don't like it, don't buy it. The demographic is clear...casual gamers. M$ presentation starting xbox? on line features?...Kinect killer app?...Fable 3...Milo...Crackdown...Gears.. ...start up the music...

cobraagent2960d ago

It wasn't too long ago that you praised Natal as the second coming. Hypocracy at its best

Pennywise2960d ago

Why's that Soda? Because the general consensus of the people who have seen this Kinect are not impressed? Did they say something you don't like?

Its funny all the sites that are always favorable towards MS are bashing Kinect. They must just be trashy biased fanboys, right? lol

Dread2960d ago (Edited 2960d ago )

penny the only paranoid tin hat losers who think everyone is biased are the sony extremist fanboys. Like so many here at N4G. I dont think you are an extremist but your close.

on point
i can care less about all this motion bull, i hated the wii, and this natal/kenect whatever and move can all suck it

Double Toasted2960d ago (Edited 2960d ago )

Haven't you heard? Now that they seemingly aren't impressed with Natal/Kinect(?)and ARE impressed with MOVE, they have now redeemed themselves of not being IGNorant<----We can no longer call them this per Sony fans. Memos will be out before the end of today...

Rainstorm812960d ago (Edited 2960d ago )

Natal was an extension of the Xbox 360 giving it new life so to speak.

But now you dont have to Kinect.

1hr 20mins

Show some new IPs please........

raztad2960d ago

What I get is this: You (regular gamer) got stuck with the old XBOX, because the new (XBOX+kinect) is not for you.

ChozenWoan2960d ago

sounds like IGN is ready to dis-Kinect and Move it Move it!

NeutralGamer2960d ago

So Greenberg realized Kinect is a big fail and did damage controle!

If Kinect was forced on Xbox 360 I would go out and buy my self a PS3 RIGHT NOW!

Red-Dead-Roar2960d ago

you should have bought that ps3 a long time ago....

NeutralGamer2960d ago

See I look at my self as a "neutral gamer" and a lot people says you have to have atleast all major 3 consoles for that, but I dont...

I know that Sony makes some über cool consoles (Had Ps1, Ps2 and PSP) and some imba games for their systems, but right now I got what I need :)

Even though I'm a big ass MGS fan (bought the PSP for Peace Walker and portable ops), I played all MGS games except MGS 4...

I just dont feel I need the PS3 imo.. Alot of people do (inclusive my brother), but I dont...

It takes the devs time away to program this crap. That means less time spent making a great game. Sigh...damn casuals!

good, I don't want crap like this for my xbox

Somnipotent2960d ago

greenberg is bag of turd. that said, kinect doesn't revolutionize anything from what i've seen. just an overhyped eyetoy. all you've got now is halo: reach.

iistuii2960d ago

And of course the HD version of Red Dead

asyouburn2960d ago

but not the hd version of halo reach

bjornbear2959d ago

I have it on my PS3, and I play it, and its just as fun as the 360 version.

try harder.

Pennywise2959d ago

Prepare your tissues for Agent's showing.

B-Real2062960d ago

god I love these comment boards. I get all kinds of laughs. Keep up the war!

asyouburn2960d ago

im not sure about the whole kinect thing, seems kinda gimmicky, but they need to keep throwing star wars at me. thats the kind of gimmicky i can wrap my wallet around. no more "rafting" please

MexicanAppleThief2960d ago

Kinect is just a god awful name. Natal sounded more edgier, new and futuristic, which would have fit well with MS's marketing. I'd love to meet the idiot that actually approved this name.

Also something about that name sounds familiar... I can't remember though.

BeaArthur2960d ago

I think they may have changed it to make it more identifiable with the casual market. We all know what Natal is but the soccer mom at Best Buy won't have any idea. Kinect sounds more like a movement control scheme than Natal.

Mista T2960d ago (Edited 2960d ago )

your name and profile pic is full of win, thats all I have to say
