Japanese Kinect Commercial Is Short But Stupid

Microsoft is obviously planning to pimp Kinect in Japan, as it hasn't given up trying to appeal to that territory yet. With that in mind, here's the television commercial it aims to do it with, demonstrating the alleged appeal of being able to play without a controller in your hand. (Kinect, Xbox 360)

Why is that commercial called "Move Men" yet one of those "Move Men" are actually female???

Also the commercial seems a little on the gay side and with the title "Move Men" doesn't help much.

Well
What people dont know is there reaction after they realize how broken it is.

Great commercial!

Oh...that's for another product.

Here's the Kinect commercial.

Really? -_-

OK you mush for brains
know this was probably done by a Japanese marketing firm right? Lots of things in Japan are VERY different or even strange to us in the west, why would you expect the ads to be any different.

Nothing to see here.

I am starting to wonder wtf is up with destructoid's agenda against kinect.
Did they go after Move like this too before it launched?

From what I can tell the people were like: wth no CONTROLLERS??!!
BillOreilly  +   1654d ago
They should have also brought blue dragon and lost odyssey sequals with kinect and all the brain game/japanese type games together to onslought japan and i think they could acually do well with the new slim. Its sexy and reliable and the japanese seem very interested in kinect. Ms did ok for a while with huge jrpgs and then they gave up. M hunter online helped but kinect might finally do it. My moneys on no but you never know?

apparently
n4g has never seen regular japanese commercials
UP  +   1654d ago
You know without the kinect and microsoft logo this could be seen as a add for ninendo or sony because the japanese people are happy without the 360 controller.
TapiocaMilkTea  +   1654d ago
Well, the ad did a pretty good job if it ended up on n4g, people discussing the weirdness of the commercial is all part of marketing.....
