Kotaku MS defense force! These guys are so pro 360 its not even funny anymore. I am not just saying because of this article(which is okey) but because of their overall coverage and excitment they have for MS product vs Sony product. Cresente (arab guy) was the only person on this planet that found Sony press conference to be "least good" as he put it on GT bonus round. What a biased tool. And pre E3 he said that either MS or Nintendo are going to win E3, bet it hurted him going through that MS bizzaro skitles 1 hours long joke, but had to obey his orders and like true MS soldier act stupid and stick to his "expectation" and proclaime MS winner over Sony.
Sony Attack Force!
That's a spacious-ass house. Normal people's house aren't even that spacious. Usually, people have a table in the center, between the sofa and the tv, where those two peoples are standing.
coffee tables are sooo 90's. I like the openness not having one creates. You get up from the sofa and not have to walk around a table in front of you. End tables are where its at my friend. Great for drinks, books and the tv remote.
In no way am I a fanboy. I'm just starting to get extremely annoyed with every PS3 fanboy on this site posting hate comments on EVERY SINGLE article that has something to do with the Xbox 360 or Microsoft.
It's better if you put the link in the comment section and not to use the related video section. It's more work for lazy people, like myself, because they have to copy and paste the link.
Absolutely. Not just in 360 or MS articles either. Just about EVERY thread ends up with the same drooling morons talking the same mindless garbage. The idea behind this site is rock solid. The users less so.
that thinks kinect is shit is a ps3 fanboy. its ok to like 360 but think kinect is baby stuff (which it is), and that it has no games at the moment (because it doesn't), and that without user feedback or buttons, that it is a step backwards in control (which is a fact). none of these arguments have anything to do with hating microsoft, as a matter of fact it can be said that you can experience the best msoft has to offer without ever even looking at kinect.
You are a retard. That's what you are for plaguing this website and marking nonspam comments as spam. Because of you I couldn't add comments for two days. Just because some lame 12 year old pressed the spam button without knowing what that's for. At least you could've bubbled me down because of trolling or personal attacking but spam?
This isn't Japan, where are the ninjas?
Here I am! *ninja vanish* I'm over here now! *ninja vanish again* OK now I'm sleepy. zzzzzzzzzzz
if you can't see them, then they did their job right.
Doesn't have 1.8 meter of free space for Kinect.
so who is going to pay for a larger house anyone??
But Microsoft needs to get over themselves, lmao. The Japanese don't give 2 shyts about american tech.
..about bad american tech only.
I have said this from day one...look at the demos...I dont know anyones LR which has so much open space. 90% of the LRs, I frequent have a couch and table between the TV. Also MS is making a big mistake, by forgetting about the optimal viewing distance from sitting and the screen. We have a 57" TV and sit 10' back with a coffee table between. You think we are gonna move the table to play...forget it
beyond that i know several people who dont get to use there living rooms for gaming and are stuck in a small office with said big tv and such, 8x8 with couch tv and pc desk not much room for kinect
I am sorry to say but not every Japanese home has a living room that size to play a Kinnect in.
specially if they live in a flat.
Fine for me my living room at least 24ft x 24ft if not bigger. Every house in my street has large living rooms and so does everyone in my family. Sure if I want it I will have to move stuff around. Moving stuff around is a novel idea I know. Kinect is geared towards families, hence the reason it should go in the living room. It's not geared for someone in an 8 x 8 bedroom. Regardless of whether it's the Wii, Move or Kinect you are going to need space to play. When you get really into the Wii for example it doesn't necessarily mean just your arms are moving. You tend to get into it to much. Shins will hit tables for example if you don't make room.
What was with that crazy SOCOM 4 demo where the guy was sitting down and slightly moving his right arm to play? That had to have been bullshit. You said you need lots of room to play the Move. I believe you. Not those people that actually played with it.
i sit on my couch to play my wii. im guessing move will be about the same.
I got two young boys. Don't tell me you think they will sit still on a couch and play Wii or Move. Point is these Wii, Move and Kinect arn't geared for a single gamer stuck in his bedroom. Sure u can use it there, but they are geared for the family. You know, Mom, Dad and children.Sure if your lazy you gonna sit down, but with two adults and two kids on the couch it's sure gonna be uncomfortable for all involved with all the arm waving. " Hey sweetie, next time you do that, can you not hit me in the face, much appreciated"
You're wrong, Dorwrath. Both the Wii and Move have shown games that do not require jumping or flailing. I gave one example in SOCOM 4. Here are a few more: Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition Time Crisis: Razing Storm Hustle Kings Killzone 3 Heavy Rain Echochrome II Sorcery The Shoot And those are just the core games. There are a few family games that also limit the jumping and flailing, like EyePet. I left them out because I wanted to refute your claim that the Move is geared for the family. It is actually geared for games. There are both core games and family games set to release. You don't have to project your fears of the Kinect onto the Move. There is more than enough proof that the Move will not be the Kinect. It's up to you to choose which one you prefer.
as in me. i dont jump around. im not lazy, i work a full time job and d quite a bit of extracurricular activities. ive had my wii since launch, and i dont think ive ever stood up and played. gaming is my chill out time.
I'm not buying either, so frankly I couldn't give a shite. Both are a fad that be dust collectors months after release once the novelty has worn off. Sure that list of games are games u will play by your lonesome or majority of them anyway. If you play golf on move are u going to do it sitting down? if you play tennis on move are you going to do it sitting down? If you play the boxing game sitting down? No your not, and theres plenty of arm swinging involved. So yes you WILL need space also with move if you are a family gamer. Yes u can sit down with Wii games, but with a family of four cramped on a sofa it isn't exactly comfortable playing. Hence why most stand up when it's their turn.
