It'll still sell. Moms and Dads will buy it.

It's like the PS3 and 360 have switched positions from 2006.

360 is now the expensive one and has no games.

MS spent too much money on expansion packs and multiplatforms. /XD

And now the bots will sope it up and use the rationale that having premium price points is a good thing, not a bad thing.

Only when Sony does it, that is when it was a bad thing.

chaosatom2955d ago

Media is going to need a lot of dough to cover this one up, haha.

captain-obvious2955d ago

at this price not natal or move can compete with the wii
which already well known between casuals

HolyOrangeCows2955d ago

It just gets worse and worse for Kinect. First a stupid name, then a bad conference, and now a confirmed high price.

$199 wii vs. $400 kinect bundle? i wonder what normal parents would chose.

sikbeta2955d ago

I know, It Doesn't make any sense... at all

deadreckoning6662955d ago (Edited 2955d ago )

If this actually sells, buttloads, I will have lost all faith in the human race.

"$199 wii vs. $400 kinect bundle? i wonder what normal parents would chose."

Yea and Galaxy 2 is LEAGUES better than most of those Kinect games combined.

Btw, is Microsoft supposed to have another conference? Wheres all those hardcore games we were supposed to get?

secksi-killer2955d ago

that will be me some real games!!!

so if this isnt going to be cheap, i want to know how much sony are going to try and fleece people for the "move" (lol) plus eye-toy?? again no thanks.

NY_State2955d ago

We're in a recession and if you think Mom and Dad are going to throw away 400+ tax on a toy you're delusional and proves that you don't work or pay bills or have a family to feed-cloth-roof over head.

lol fanboys these days, they're nuts!

vhero2955d ago

So the $149.99 is confirmed then or what?? Gamestop are pretty reliable in US though as they are a massive chain store right?

Theres only a bajjilion other things Mommy and Daddy could buy for their kids besides a $149.99 add on.

Kinect is THE most ADVANCED piece of hardware on the market today.

It is so advanced, it offers Human Lag Support. If you're too slow, the game will automatically predict your exact movement (even sometimes before you know it) and it'll make up for any discrepencies in your gameplay performance.

Just watch:

Edit: You know what? I don't know how to upload those amazing gif images. You'll have to just enter in the address yourselfs.

You see if I had Kinect right now, it would have entered in the right movements for me to upload that Gif directly. Kinect will never let you fail. Doesn't it sell itself?

i loled hard

Weaksauce11382955d ago

Considering there is no bundle with the new 360 i'd chalk this up to innacurate and outdated info. We don't even know if those elite and arcade models are going to continue post redesign.

ALFAxD_CENTAURO2955d ago (Edited 2955d ago )

Well, they need to show Core Games and not only for casual, and I will buy it.

I asume the Casual Audience is sold with that, after watching the conference.

Somnipotent2955d ago

no, the casual audience has already bought a wii. they don't care about graphics or gameplay and they most certainly do not want another console to clutter up their living rooms. sorry, the xbox brand is "not" casual. they are trying to be. and they will fail to be.

secksi-killer2955d ago (Edited 2955d ago )

so, whats your take on the chances of the "move" being a sucess then?

@ happy gilmore: grow up child. dont put me into the same pathetic fanboy category as yourself.. you fanboys sicken me with your not normal obsessions witha games console. reported aswell. move is harcore lol!

@ somnipotent: yes i am waiting also for sonys games tomorrow, but seeing as you have had an opinion on "kinetic" (lol), i assumed you would have an opinion on move!! i just find it strange that you would have an opinion for one and not the other??

Somnipotent2955d ago (Edited 2955d ago )

i have very little interest in "motion-enabled" gaming so i have no take on move. what i do care is what sony is going to show in GAMES tomorrow.

ALFAxD_CENTAURO2955d ago (Edited 2955d ago )

Move will have Core Games, as for Casual also. And I'm waiting the Survival Horror Game for Move.

But for Kinect, they need to show something for Core Audience.
