He looks like Yellow Bastard from Sin City.
They're both into small boys.

zeeshan2677d ago (Edited 2677d ago )

How old is he? I am guess he is old enough to know a thing called EYETOY? :P That happened well under 10 years let alone 20 years! :)

GrieverSoul2677d ago (Edited 2677d ago )

Peter Molyneux is to developers what Patcher is to analysts.

A "cant-keep-my-mouth-shut- because-Im-an-attention- whore" type of person.

I like his games but I dont like the character he plays in the media.

Molyneux: Kinect 'Biggest Innovation In 20 Years'
LOL yeah right the EyeToy on PS2 is more fun than this laggy ....

EDIT: Even the Nintendo 3DS is a bigger innovation than this

brazilianbumpincher2677d ago (Edited 2677d ago )

he knows its going down the platform has hit a huge rock,the holes are glaringly obvious which is letting in the waves of frustration from the gamers onboard , but in his loyalty he decides to keep playing his tune to the end playing while everyone else is running around him jumping off the sinking ship

sad to say if gears goes multi after the trilogy deal with ms is finished im jumping into a ps3 life raft also

Watch, once Kinect is behind us, he will bash the crap out of it like he does every game he's ever been a part of.

anh_duong2677d ago

if it is the biggest then why didn't you put it in fable??

personally i am not sure what is the best innovation.. nothing really comes to mind..

LeShin2677d ago

...and even better avatar name lmao!

Narutone662677d ago

from Peter. He is a MS paid employee after all.

Coming from the biggest bser that hypes his games yet doesn't deliver. Nice job molyneux.

Funny comment from him though. In my eyes, Kinect is the biggest innovation that fails, will fail, has failed to deliver.

That Fable 3 will not support it ........ nuff said

Blaze9292677d ago

Fable 3 will support Kinect features post launch....so what are you taking about?

Sitris2677d ago

And even it was going to be, it would probably just be for the pub games, or other mini games, not going to be part of the main gamplay, but Ive been wrong before.

Pennywise2677d ago

Yeah, Blaze... just like he delivered on all of his past promises. This coming from the same guy who said his last game, fable2 could have been made by children.

This guy is all talk.

Megaton2677d ago

Hahaha, he does look like the Yellow Bastard.

I kinda doubt he really believes that. He's gotta toe the line. He is a subsidiary of Microsoft, after all.

Basil-Rathboner2677d ago

Dam you FangBlade, i have just bought a new pair of jeans and i spat out my coffee over them laughing at that Sin City jape. Great stuff. Every time i see a pic of him now i will just about p!$$ myself thinking about your analogy.

Gantrfaxx2677d ago

LOL at Molyneux. I guess he was sleeping last 20 years then.

avengers19782677d ago

It's Molyneux he's basically a MS puppet, I'm not surprised by his comments. All he ever seems to talk about is how great the xbox 360 is.

strickers2676d ago

He's head of EU MS devs.

DigitalAnalog2677d ago (Edited 2677d ago )

The real statement:

"I think for certain people in the industry [Kinect] is the most wonderful thing that’s happened in the last 20 years, but for others it's the worst."

Certain. People. Certain. People.

**Looks at 360 trolls on N4G.

Certain. People. Certain. People.

-End statement

yewles12677d ago

Instead of complaining about the trolls, you SHOULD be complaining about the title. -_-

DigitalAnalog2677d ago

I meant "Certain People" = "360 trolls in N4G".

-End statement

really ? bigger than the wii,ds eyetoy, online gaming ? wow how much is microsoft paying you ?

marinelife92677d ago

Then he should have put Fable on rails like the Harry Potter game and made it Kinect compatible. What a moron.

dizzleK2677d ago

We'll see. That's all that can honestly be said at this point. It may be meh now but it could be mind blowing a year from now. I'll at least give it the benefit of the doubt.

Yi-Long2677d ago

... as of now, only Dance Central and some of the Fitness-stuff seems to be stuff that would work well with it...

However, for actual games, I think most of it will be worthless shovelware.

Now, I know my girlfriend will LOVE the fitness stuff and the Dance Central. However, for 150 euro, I sure as hell am not going to buy it, and neither will she.

I bet that fall 2011 Kinect will be down to 50 bucks.

I'm sure that technically it's great and a big step forward. However, nothing has been shown REALLY that makes me think it will be worth 150 bucks for ME.

Rainstorm812677d ago

and thats when i will purchase it...... but there wont be any Day one shenanigans for me

strickers2676d ago

I totally agree.It will be the best system for Dance games but are we now supposed to consider them a major genre.They've been niche for years.

PirateThom2677d ago

That's it... just wait.

No proof of a decent concept, no games in early stages, just wait.

dredgewalker2677d ago

Just let them buy it, at least we're not the ones who are gonna regret it. I'll just wait here and laugh my socks off when they how useless Kinect is for real games.

Hellsvacancy2677d ago

Molyneux is all on his own on that 1

longcat2677d ago

getting ppl to pay 4 more faulty hardware would be HIGHLY innovative.

dredgewalker2677d ago

I was under the impression you would buy Kinect because of Milo......joke :)

longcat2677d ago

STANDARDS - PEDROBEAR HAS THEM

i already have a dead 360, dont need to add to the collection

BlackBusterCritic2677d ago

"I'm going to be honest with you, most of what you'll see is a trick."
Yeah, great way to show us this FANTASTIC INNOVATION!

Hands Up For Games2677d ago

Its cool to bash isnt it? Might as well join the herd then.

"Yeah, Kinect is so FAIL!! Peter M is a Pedo!!"

How did I do guys, how did I do?

FiftyFourPointTwo2677d ago (Edited 2677d ago )

Its fine. But if were talking Open Zone standards, that's kinda weak I must say. :D

Hands Up For Games2677d ago

Well I tried, Im just not used to all this Hate. Ill keep trying though ;)

longcat2677d ago (Edited 2677d ago )

not convincing - i could tell your heart was not in it.
Play 8 hrs of god of war and try again

Point added for avatar - the wire was awesome

Hands Up For Games2677d ago

Ill run through God of War again tonight then, see if Kratos can put some fire in my belly.

The Wire is the best TV programme ever. And thats a Fact!!
