People have been talking about things like 'video chat technology' for years, no one ever really uses it. Chat with friends while watching a movie together? Some blu-ray disks already do this (BDLive). Does anyone ever use it? Doubtful.

If Microsoft's goal is to have the 360 at the centre of people's lives then fine, just make sure there are some good GAMES for the rest of us.

What are you talking about? There are tones of games coming out for the 360?! Halo reach on its own is enough to make thousands of people happy for a really long time!

BakedGoods2677d ago

Sorry, I was referring to Kinect.

Although I will admit, Reach is the only game on my 360 list this year.

Bigpappy2677d ago

Like when I have to go on training or visit family. At nights I log on and chat with my brothers.

Same here. The 360 is a great way to keep in touch. Its easy and really cheap.

"An Xbox is already a good tool for keeping in touch with people."

If you are a 12 year old trash talker douchebag... then its most likely a good tool for you to communicate with others like you.

That is their goal when the first got into gaming and still is

"just make sure there are some good GAMES for the rest of us."

Nope they don't care its the first part they care about, all evidence points to that

I think that the 360 has alot of potential in this area. I use the chat feature all of the time. I would find it hard to game without it now. And as far as games, I would say that we are mostly covered. Perhaps a few more AAA games, but I think that overall we have some great stuff as well as some good looking DLC on the way.

wecouldlive2677d ago

Ok, well Kinect may not have any great games...yet. That star wars one could be cool. But is Reach the only thing that you are interested in 360 wise? There are so many more!

Kinect will be successful and so will the new Windows Phone 7 with Xbox Live.

I showed my 13 year kid some demos of those games and the fact you can get achievements and that's what he wants for Christmas.

wecouldlive2677d ago

I think that Kinect will be really successful. Kids are going to go crazy for those fuzzy animals and adults are going to use it for the stuff in the linked article. The chat stuff alone makes it worth it.

Poor mediocre world (especially states)

AA72677d ago

What? What does this have anything to do with the article?
