Obviously. The MS conference just finished and IMO it was the WORST conference I've ever seen. Horrible.

EDIT: @Megapowa


-They showed only 1 new game and even that was only a live action trailer

- The new 360 is priced the same, no price drop

-They focused on Kinect and it was major fail. Video Kinect was so boring and the interface was laggy

-The games for Kinect were nothing but casual stuff, mostly direct rip-offs of Wii games (which look like they work better on the Wii)

-Metal Gear Rising does not look that good. In fact, it looked nothing like MGS.

I'm not trolling, I'm just saying it was terrible. I could list more but that's what immediately comes to mind.

We gave MS the benefit of the doubt. We waited ONE YEAR for E3 to see if Kinect would deliver and guess what? It didn't. They did show a single game for the core audience. They showed only laggy demos for casuals.

go back under your bridge.

Apart from MGS Rising and the Kinect interface, it was pretty bad IMO.

MegaPowa2898d ago

What was so horrible about it?

RememberThe3572898d ago

What was so great about it? They showed Reach, Fable 3 and Gears. That's about it. Everything else was for Kinect and it was lame. I don't know how you could be a gamer and get excited for what Kinect has offered so far.

I'm not trying to troll but I really wanted more.

Kinect did deliver! just not for us gamers.

The conference was still quite amusing, that skittles part was hilarious XD

ohhh im soo jealous lmao

Honestly this was the best use of Nata...erm...Kinect to date. Dance games can easily make the most use of a controllerless input device as spin moves or (for the physically fit and physically capable), handstands and other complicated moves would be tough to pull off with a controller in your hand (lest you risk breaking your controller). The problem is the lag. The video in the demo seemed to just be the computer AI doing the moves with the folks on the stage following along. If MS can solve the horrible lag issues with Kinetic...Kintec...Kin...oh F it, NATAL I can see this being the game with the most potential of the bunch. The problem is that at this point, it's really the ONLY game with potential.

The chick dancing at the beginning looks good doing it. This sounds like a real dancing game. Can't wait to show everyone how to do the thriller!

MightyMark4272898d ago

I can see this game as being good. let's just hope the lag isn't that bad

Stryfeno22898d ago

Lol...Thriller will be a hit with Kinect.

Shani2898d ago

yes.. that girl was good at moves..
from all the games for Kinect. I liked Dance Central.. looks good.
hope I can learn some moves..

Jrome2898d ago

The best game they showed for Kinect. Everything else you could notice that when they were moving too quickly the lag was noticeable

MegaPowa2898d ago

They still had fun so who cares?

DelbertGrady2898d ago (Edited 2898d ago )

This probably won't be popular at all considering how few TV shows there are about dancing. I can't think of any.

Having that Star Wars game probably won't help it either. I mean who would want to step into the shoes of a Jedi just to use force powers and swing a light saber? So silly.
