Front Toward Gamer's InstanKarma has a little rant about the Microsoft conference.
I <3 molesting animals.
It's flicking "Short" (and fat) God damn it (LMFBAO)
Kinect will be fine for the casual market.
oop, edited your comment. I agree it will bring Micosoft into competion for the casual gamers. This is coming from a "hardcore" gamers perspective, which is fair to say most people here fall into that category too.
yeah, sorry for the edit, I am trying to be less grumpy, rofl.
I fine the surprise at the Kinect focus of Microsoft's presser confusing. We knew going in what to expect and what the focus would be but yet there is surprise and backlash on the internet. Really? Who the hell was surprised by Microsoft's press conference?
Bye skittles i love you.
Its cute n all, but it doesn't appeal to me. I'm sure it will to others though.
I see you Skittles!!! :D
Dont forget about Gears 3 Gameplay footage , Forza Kinect ,Fable 3 Trailer, and Halo Reach Campaign Footage and of course Minority Report type Dashboard..
I own all the consoles, but a majority of games that I buy are for the Xbox 360, so I was looking forward to the Keynote this year.....and I was really gutted! It was absolute pants, compariable to Nintendo's keynote last year. A few hardcore games (MGS, GOW3, Halo Reach, Fable 3, COD Black Ops), and then it's all about Kinect and a load of Wii rip off titles. Where were all the new exclusives, where were all the new XBLA games? For the first time in a while, MS cocked up the show. Instead of appealing for there main core audience, they tried to cater for the family audience like Nintendo did with the Wii. I never thought I'd say this, but I can't wait to see Sony's confernce, even with the 15 minutes of selling statistics and crap before they actually show any games. MS...you disappointed all your core gamers with that crap keynote. Hang your head in shame!
out of the "hardcore gamers" on this site. Maybe you should wake up and figure out what Nintendo did 4 years ago. That casuals far out number hardcore. MS and Sony both are going to try very very hard to tap into that market. There will still be hardcore games, but the marketplace is obviously split between casual and hardcore gamers. It's foolish to ignore them, especially when Nintendo has already crushed it's competition this generation using 9 year old technology. So whine all you want, Sony and MS both are switching gears to include fuzzy little animal games that have nothing to do with us.
I smell rival-console fanboys...
MS blew it big time for me im a mutli console owner wit a 360 preference and i was soo disappointed now im banking on sony to deliver
that overshadows (somehow) the fact that; 1.MS has an EXCLUSIVE deal with ESPN. 2. Kinect will work on the PC (via Windows Messenger). 3. Xbox users can now video chat w/Windows Messenger users (text had been done since 1994). 4. Video chat HANDS-FREE. 5. Share (watch & listen) music & video, etc while in a video chat; HANDS-FREE. 6. Access your Zune library (Zune PAss) via the dashboard. 7. Play media files, HANDS-FREE via Zune 8. Explore your dashboard HANDS-FREE 9. Turn on/off your Xbox via your SPECIFIC voice.
I don't think Microsoft will be cutting into the Wii market so easily people. Considering the price on Gamestop $149 this kinect Sh!T is a lil pricey for what it does. Bundle that in with the New 360 and were talking $450 which is ridiculous. The Wii is only $200 and no games are over $50. All those Kinect games looked like they had their on packaging and knowing Microsoft that's $60. Microsoft has to start making things cheaper if they want to capture the casuals. To me it seems like they are trying to turn the hardcore gamers into casuals which is next to impossible. Tough road ahead of them.
