In a new video some VIP's are talking about their Kinect impressions.
They are all paid to "Kinect" that's why they love it so much, even though they will prob never play it at home. Like Felicia Day is so obviously paid by MS or at the very least gets ALOT of 360 stuff for free. She prob doesn't even care about 360 because every time I read a tweet its about WOW...its like OK we get the point, your a girl and you like WOW ?!?! :O Amazzzzinnngg
ouch 1 hour 18 min. your last chance to impress MS @below im looking for MS's conference MORE THAN SONY'S believe it or not? because i want to restore faith in MS if i wanted to make "spins and excuses" i wouldn't be in here waiting with this page on my browser http://e3.gamespot.com/pres... what you think everyone is a fanboy like you ?? grow up
1 hour and 18 mins left for you to make up spins and excuses if they actually do impress with their conference.
How do you and the folks below know that those folks were paid to be there? That seems to be a recurring theme, but where is that information coming from? I suspect they probably took home schwag bags just like at every awards show known to man (as if hollywood folks need that shit), but having a check cut to them from Microsoft? Edit: Okay got a disagree and thats fine, but where is the proof? I'm more than willing to hear the I told you so if its presented.
How much were they paid. I'm really glad everyone in the industry is seeing microsoft for who they really are. It's something we've been trumpeting for months about natal but now all the mainstream gaming media see it too. Makes me happy. Smoke and Mirrors Jump In
90% of those "celebs" wont even know how many GBs their X360 hard drive has! Who are they to talk about something they havent or barely experienced?!
They are the exact demographic and representation of the people they want to buy the products believe it or not. If they can manage to make people who don't follow gaming as close as we do love the product, the rest will follow. Microsoft know what they are doing, and as much as I'm not interested (hoping the conference can change that) they are the truth with it comes to marketing
Celebrity endorsements are nothing new. If you have any event promoting an item and a bunch of celebrities were invited to it, you can easily bet that they're opinions are going to be extremely distorted in one way or another. Plus, look at all the over-excitement. These people, most of whom probably don't (or rarely) play videogames are bubbling with over-the-top excitement. It's hard to explain, but it's just not real. These people put on false fronts for a living, and you can sort of tell when they are doing. Most of what they said felt manufactured, contrived, and as I said before, way overly-dramatic. It's something that's hard to explain, something that you can just tell. And no I'm not saying this because "lolz nobodi wud liek Kinect", I'm saying this because that is what this situation honestly looks like.
Someone that believes "celebrities" like Kim Kardashian or Courtney are happy to provide the media with news of their life so far or pictures of the new baby without any request for compensation is a rather naive person imo. The same can be said when you find a celeb at a particular club often or at a particularly bad club. They don't go there just cuz they "like" the club. They're there to promote, and it's usually the club that gives them an incentive to be there. Besides, the people at the event got free plush tigers to go along with their kinectimals. Isn't that some form of incentive?
Notice how they interviewed them before they experienced the Kinect experience. lol.
Opinions are worthless if they aren't real. And trust me, these opinions aren't real or accurate in any way. "This can go one of two ways, but since its the Xbox and Microsoft, it can only go up!" "I love Xbox!"
And the camera person lead him to the word "up". The guy didn't know what to say, nor did he really care.
Lol, this is actually quite lame. You can tell that none of these celebs actually give a crap about Kinect, they just want to see the Cirque Du Soleil performance.
that's correct, there's even a girl that thinks they are launching a new system hahahaha... kinect is an add-on, no matter how you look at it, if you are into gaming or know what you are talking about, you cannot say kinect is a new system.
yeah indeed... falling for the flash... no substance
The Thing is that MS don't need Celebs or whatever famous people and such, cos they don't represent the average guy, what they need is real people saying good stuff about the God Damned Thing, but Of Course we'll not see that cos they (MS) Refuse to do it for whatever reason...
so their opinions of it are completely opposite of the girls from the podcast in http://n4g.com/news/542844/... of course... these impressed people are "vips"
Look at this...the entire thread is PS3 kids crying...say it isn't so...lol...Kinect is gonna be huge for the reasons articulated by all the guests especially Billy Cystal...must be paid to like M$...lol...sad bunch... Look at the dude that has the M$ presentation time...LMFAO...that's the spirit kids...new xbox...MGS4 exclusive directors cut for 360...Fable...gears...halo...b ig news... BTW...go listen to Billy Cystal again...that is exactly what Kinect is all about...M$ should use him as a spokesman...
a 360 kid crying! Seriously you are kidding no one. You and Hallmark having been around around this site in full blown panic mode trolling your backsides off. You cry about PS3 fans being in 360 articles yet you and him are in nearly every PS3 article! Stop being a troll but most of all stop being a hypocrite. Kinect is what it is and nothing more. MS at this point should show what Kinect is capable of. They brought this on themselves by pulling another Milo with the Star Wars video. It was nothing but a fluff piece and flat out staged. It wasn't needed. They should just stick to what it is and market it that way. Maybe in time it might be able to do some of the things MS and some of the gaming media, thought it would be able to do. Only time will tell but so far it's exactly what I thought it would be. A device for extreme casual games and an add on for hardcore games but in limited form.
Cez we are talking about that we don't take what these "vip" say real seriously. You are just a troll and have nothing better to do then troll every single article. Why would we envy Felicia Day please tell me. She has never in celebrity terms been "A list". She is irrelevant to gaming if anything If i was to envy microsoft it would be if they brought someone like jessica alba or megan fox or someone else. But Felicia day give me a break kid. You are picking at straws just to justify your trolling. You fail and thats why you have 1 bubble.
You bring in people who make a living "Being someone they are not", in this case, gamers. Actors who make their livings reading from "scripts". Maybe this will help in the casual market, but the push is alienating the fanbase that got you where you are.
Its obvious when random celebs turn up that obviously aren't interested in gaming at all...that they have been paid lol.
You call yourself logical and can't figure this out? Protip: Actors don't show up at events like this and participate in the without getting paid. Period.
Well, as long as the important people are impressed... /s
What's next? Ronald McDonald showing up with free Happy Meals? "Kids! use this product to burn off the obscene amount of fat you get from eating my food!"
of course these celebs know nothing about games, they were payed to go there and talk good about this crap.
yeah, they look like they play a lot of games. /s
Although I know you are trolling I will agree with you. "Impressed VIP's" means nothing when the VIP's are people who don't play games.
executives care about one thing: money. they assume gamers will lap this up like the did the wii. sorry son, if they have a wii, why would they want to buy another console? you sold us on games, now bring them. i don't want this crap.
Agree again, I have a Wii and it's turned into a Netflix device for our bedroom. I never play anything on it and so I am not at all interested in any new motion devices.
yeah i believe you after watching video OMG these people don't care about gaming. and gamers call the xbox "360". no one calles it xbox any more com on this is propaganda
VIP's? What makes them important?
VIP's = Non-gamers
I really don't care what celebs think least in terms of gaming. Plus Felicia Day LMFAO ? WTF has she been doing ? I have not seen or heard from her until this article FAIL.
I stopped reading at VIP.
Noooooope: would jack osbourne lie to me?!^^
Rosario Dawson is hot but I'm sure she know as much about gaming as my 80 year old neighbor.
VIP's are always intressed. Like they have a script here in the netherlands, a lot of famous dutch stars we're watching a movie premier.. they we're all like: ''WOOOW AWESOME MOVIE'' "CANT BE ANY BETTER!" But 90% of the review sites gave that movie a 2 out of 10. and sayed it sucked
They even care about games? I think no.
So the people paidto say good things about it are impressed, well I better take their word for it even though they don't play games instead of the gaming community who actually enjoys playing/reviewing them in spare time.
"For me, the highlight of the evening was watching Ninja Gaiden creator Tomonobu Itagaki walk into the event in his white robe, taking in the scene behind his traditional sunglasses. He looked around a few times, stood quietly for a few moments and then turned around and left.
paid VIPs.... and they couldnt even convince me to get excited..
The performance or Kinect? If it was kinect, they are full of shit because it seemed like it was all faked.
sorry but I don't really care about the opinion of people who don't care about gaming in general.
LOL I would have took them more seriously If they had Soulja boy. He is a top Microsoft fanboy. I would have took him 1000x more seriously then Her. And Everything that comes out of soulja boy mouth is pure ignorance and nonsense.
Actors and celebs are good and all, but I rather listen to people who actually play videogames, and so far they aren't impress. Can't wait to see what's instore for us at the MS conference, should be entertaining.
VIP's Are 'Really' Impressed...with the cheques they received
What choice do they have? "NO"?? Of course they are going to be impressed even if they lie!
where the hell is Justin Beiber? He is a MS sycophant now and I want my JB
12 year old Kids favorite game is COD MW2, I'm shocked.
They are obviously paid and no this is not trolling. They do not even look like they are enjoying it or having fun. In their minds they are like damn when am I getting paid by microsoft I hope my check comes next week. Honestly and they kept getting their words mixed up every second. Like A real gamer would have been excited and kept talking about it nonstop. Jesus christ Get better actors Microsoft. A multi billion dollar company and they got trash actors like this. And I would also trash sony if they pulled some stunt like this also. So don't call me a fanboy or a troll for telling you how it is. Watch the video and someone tell me do they look excited or even happy while playing or speaking about natal or w.e its called ?
Looks like Microsoft isn't fooling anyone this time around. Should have kept their mouths shut until E3. It would have been better for everyone.
Very Important Casuals We already know this is one big MTV ad. They are just there so MTV can say "Looks at all the stars that want to kinect! lol" Just some bs advertising to get the hipster crowd
Some VIP's are more concerned about their hair than Natal/Kinect. They probably paid more attention to the cirque du soleil elephant than the games. Honestly, hiring celebrities to feign interest in video games is growing old, fast. They don't give a damn, we as gamers can tell they don't give a damn. The whole thing reeks of phoniness. The Beatles at last year's E3, Merissa Miller a couple of days ago on GTTV, and now this. When was the last time you saw Kojima or Miyamoto or Fatal1ty pretending to be interested in old Beatles soundtracks? (Disclaimer: Yes, there are celebrities who do play video games. It's cool to here their opinion. I'm merely talking about those celebrities that don't give a damn.)
Uh they had Rosario Dawson there but I also know for fact that she doesn't play video games often she said it herself. And Notice how awkward the chick looks at least get Jimmy Fallon up there if he felt awkward he'd turn it into a joke. I think it's also worth mentioning that Kinect could make Dane Cook (is that his name?) funny. Maybe
I guess nobody can be impressed with Microsoft products without being paid right? Though if VIPS like a Sony product it must be because it's so 1337 right? Get a grip, it's okay for people to like Microsoft. 40+ million consoles sold and some of the best games this or any generation make it okay to like them. I know a lot of Sony fangirls are ticked off because MS dominated the internet and twitter last night, as well as N4G. I know it probably irked some of you, but get over it. MS isn't going anywhere and they put out quality items. I could sit here and list faults with any product or company, but it's pointless. If your getting Kinect or a 360 fan, those are the only kinds of people that should be posting in obvious pro 360 articles. The fanaticism from the Sony crowd borders on lunacy. I could understand if you weren't in last place, but sheesh your company that your so crazy over totally dropped the ball with so many things, they managed to go from almost all the market share to not even a third. First to last. We get it, your bitter and angry. Take that stuff someplace else. Sony is the one who killed their good name and brand. I'm sick of seeing nothing but spoiled, idiotic Sony fangirls spam every topic. Call of the dogs, it's a day for all gamers to enjoy. Stop the insecure crud, it gets old. Kinect is looking good, the slim/redesign XBox 360 is looking good and they will both sell well and give MS another boost. Get over it.
I don't think they were paid but I'm also not too sure if it was a good idea inviting a whole bunch celebs that know little or nothing at all about. Some of the celeb thought they were showing entirely new XBOX console. I really think they should have done something more quiet with journalist and fewer celebs.
Get a clue already , they'd would be impressed by whoever invited them , be it nintendo , sony or apple ... that's what they are supposed to do at such events . Ever seen a VIP at a product launch claim it's crap or that they dont care ? Most of them can't name a game besides mario or something else really famous .
kinect is going to be meager, it was over hyped and you aren't going to win anything with it you really think the VIP's mean that? so naive and young...tsk tsk
Before there presentation last night, I was convinced I was going to buy Kinect one day on .... But there are def negative reactions, and it seems it was NOT a live demostration or it was not as accurate as I hoped.
let the gamers decide
An insult to gamers...
I see the Trolls are out in full force today.
