Lifestyle writes: Top Children's Toys for Christmas 2010

Every year before the Christmas holidays, there always seems to be a new addition or type of gaming system that our children beg us to get them. Either the Nintendo, Wii, Playstation, this year it is the Xbox Kinect. You do not have to be a fortune teller to know this will be one of most in demand toys this holiday season. It attaches right onto your Xbox, it does not have any controllers it is totally voice activated. It comes with a 3-D camera and microphones in the system. The players control the games with their movements and voices, for young gamers this will definitely be on the top of their list. Here you can see they are taking pre-orders at Toys-R-Us to start delivery in November, 2010, and the price is $149.99.

Kinect is not a good children's toy. All my little cousins far prefer games on Wii than some stupid dance and fitness games.

big_silky2687d ago

yea, because they've played kinect already and formed a judgement....

It's funny that Kinect is considered a children's toy when the gaming industry is trying to distinguish itself as a more mature platform and medium of entertainment. As long as people come up with more childish ways of playing games people will never get over the fact that gaming is more than "just for kids." Way to go motion controls..

I for one won't buy into this bull. If I want fitness I'd go to a fricken gym. When I see a Kinect owner they better be fit as fuck seeing as how many fitness games are dropping at launch. Move is just as bad by the way, waving little rave sticks around doesn't make you look any cooler when playing "hardcore" games than flailing your arms around like a rabid chimp.

They're probably more mature than you. Clearly you don't know kids based on your claims saying they played Kinect already? Kids minds and trends in general for all age groups change in a New York minute.

Never seen a more appropriate title. The Kinect is a toy and not a serious gaming device.

Hades13372687d ago

Just like the Wii, but it didn't stop it from selling millions upon millions.

DelbertGrady2686d ago (Edited 2686d ago )

So Move must be considered more of toy?

Venatus-Deus2686d ago

Certainly looks the part...

Moentjers2686d ago

does it have force-feedback ?

Snack_Raccoon2686d ago

As much as I hate the "Move is a dildo" jokes.

I lol'd

jjmustoe2686d ago

this is the last year for Hardcore Gaming on xbox 360

DiRtY2686d ago (Edited 2686d ago )

So you missed TGS? There are 5 exclusive and hardcore Kinect titles in 2011 already.

Steel Battalion
Project Draco
Codename D
*forgot one*

Gears of War 3 might be hardcore, too.
Xcom as well.
Project Kingdom, too.
Forza is not that casual, isn't it?

And that is just the exclusive part. Hardcore gamers will play on Xbox 360 next year.

Bulletstorm, Crysis 2, Max Payne 3 and LA Noire will be released next year.

Plus DLC for this years blockbusters like CoD Black Ops, Fable III, Halo Reach and Fallout New Vegas will keep gamers busy.

Don't act like there is nothing to play on Xbox 360. You can repeat it as long as you feel like, but it won't become true though.
