"No more gadgets, no more gizmos, it's just YOU." A video by a mom, explaining Kinect for other mothers out there.
Anyway nice vid, I thought she explained it well for the soccer moms. I've been thinking about getting kinect, before I wanted to wait until theres a game I'm interested in, but the XBL intergration/dashboard interaction has always had my attention. After talking to my cousin back home yesterday, he sort of sold me on it. I'm already buying 1 for my nephews. I think I'm going to pick one up on release for myself too so I can vid chat with family, ah and see who's over at his house. lol JOY
yep, i thought so too. Even though its a compliment so to speak its a bit slack for a so called major site. Im not really interested in the dashboard interaction to be honest ill just wait until something more appealing to me personally comes up. I still have hope even though ive expressed so much doubt. Im dont think anybody can blame anybody else who feels the same. Red_Orange_Juice oh, ok, ill take it back eurogamer
original video was "MS Mum" and you added personal comment to it
Well said +
i think thats gunna be the only thing ill agree with you for a while.
now the whole family will know how much their kids curse... q:
Because she is Milfy.
Wow, it would appear the MODS on this site have their heads stuck straight up their asses if they deleted C64's comment for "trolling".
"There's something for everyone..." No...there's not. Also, I'm starting to see what Anton was talking about when he was saying that it would get tiresome waving your hands "Minority Report"-style. Did you see how far she had to move her hand to FF/RW just a little bit? I'm pretty sure that specific demo was rigged, but rewinding through 10 minutes of footage could be tiresome. Sure, you could just grab a controller for that...but if the controller is handy then why not have one in the first place? It just seems a little overdone to me. A great concept, but not a practical one.
Yes it does look rather tiresome after a few secs but I think voice commands will be useful in ff rw moments.
If moving your arms tire you, since I know a lot of gamers out there aren't used to moving their body much, there is always voice control! If that is too much of a hassle after your b!tching session while you frag your friends, then perhaps Kinect isn't for you!
Holding your arms out in front of you for an extended period of time would tire ANYBODY. That's why they do that sort of thing in toning exercises. It requires the use of muscles that don't normally get a lot of use. I'm sure you're a big, macho strongman, but the average person (mothers like in this video, for example) are not conditioned to do that. Even if you are a big, muscular stud, I'm sure you'd probably get tired playing even something as simple as Archery in Sports Champions for an extended period. EDIT: Oh, and voice commands are even less useful for a mother (or anyone with kids). Will Kinect be able to pick out "Xbox Play" over the background noise of children screaming, "MOM! Tyler won't share the popcorn!" I didn't think so.
"Microsoft Mum explains Kinect" WOW! Microsofts mum is pretty hot! I'd tap that. Anyway this is more proof that Kinect is nothing more then a casual gamers device.
"I think I'm going to pick one up on release for myself too so I can vid chat with family" So you're buying Kinect to use as a web cam?
Grab popcorn. http://www.youtube.com/watc... :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D For teh lulz.
"Calvin_ISA" = A PRIME example of whats wrong with this site, troll infestation. Man GTFO. Now on topic.....MILF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!
Says the guy with two bubbles.. Look at my comment history. Let the reality of Kinect really being shit settle in. It's not hate on something beautiful. It's not because I can't have it. It's because it's not advancing gaming in any way. I'm a core gamer, you see, I don't want to play Beiber songs, I don't want to see the new Alice In Wonderland movie, I don't want Kinect to slow down the games that actually matter. Do you know what Justin Beiber, Alice In Wonderland, and cute little tigers have in common? Little kids love them. Sure, what I did was a little "troll-y", but as I stated I did it for teh lulz. Learn to take jokes, people. I don't get pissy at others bashing things if it's obviously a joke. Now be quiet and pretend this never happened for the sake of your brain cells. Paranoid.
lol kinect defence force in full effect.
Well Microsoft have doomed themselves properly this time -_- they've sided with Justin Beiber. Hope you guys enojoy Project Anal on your FagBox's.
Is this language really appropriate.
There's worse on prime time TV in Britain. Also who gives a damn?
Oh come on, change the horrible title of this news......
No dude. These type of titles always attracts the pubescent members!
they will sell so much!
it's not a milf IMO
I lmao pretty hard when i read the title btw she's not really a milf...
Yeah I'd hardly say she's a Milf... T_T
i still would
REVIEWS!!! Maybe some good games that I can play instead of a trip to the Zoo!
you can see how Kinect will sell well and you can clearly see their target audience I know there are gonna be a lot of happy kidz playing with their parents xmas morning.... enjoy The games are non existent for me now, so between the lack of games and the price I am gonna wait till next year. If anyone can find a linky which shows hardcore gamers playing Kinect please linky them
Extremely unprofessional title, it's not even in the real article. Skowhegan needs to be reported.
clearly the author does not know what MILF means....seriously....
I dont know what is more funny... the author or the DA clueless about MILF... KuDOS for removing it from the title..
Everytime she says family or friends you must drink a shot of Vodka. So... the core 360 owners how do you feel about this. Not a single glimpse of a core Kinect game, just more casual stuff. Also is video chat really a feature. I can do it on my TV erm by PLUGGING MY PC INTO MY TV. Or using my PS2 with my PS2 eyetoy. Seriously who on this site looked at that video and went.... well that's for me.
I've been gaming along time, its always been about FUN to me. I own all 3 consoles and think they all bring something great to the table. My kids and I cant wait to get our hands on kinect. What you call "casual stuff" I call cool motion control games without guns and blood. I expect us to have some great photos of us having a blast with games like Dance Central. As for plugging in a PC to the TV, its called CONVENIENCE and the video chat features of kinect look impressive, easy to use besides nobody I know has a ps2 eyetoy anyway.
"Seriously who on this site looked at that video and went.... well that's for me." This advertisement wasnt designed for you or me.Thats how I feel about it. Its a ad targeted more towards my wife featuring highlights SHE would like in wording she understands. My wife also doesnt know we COULD use our PS2 as a video chat device or even how to do that with our laptops. But you know Kinect is going to make setting up and actually using it streamlined,simple, and efficient because of LIVE. Thats the difference. I could technically make a gun out of parts from a hardware store,but buying one ready to go has its advantages.
I dont know whats core to you(lets say 80% of my games are shooters) is that core enough to you? And I have also RPG, RTS, And any game I think I would enjoy, and to me Kinect is very enjoyable. Am gonna buy kinectimals, Your shape, Adventure, And sport. Why? Cuz I like games, And what I saw is enjoyable to me and my family who could not wait to have it. While your gonna PLUGG your pc with your TV am gonna enjoy using just Kinect and sits on the sofa while you have to sit 2 inch from your tv with all the cables :D I like being the controller :D
Did I mention shooters? 80% of Kinects line-up is dance games. You really want me to define core vs casual? Casual people when asked if they are a gamer would usually say no but I game on my Wii/Facebook. Core people are PROUD to say they game the comptete on a mental level against people or the game itself to overcome a challenge and to have fun. We the core has kept gaming alive, through the diffucult times we've supported companies and now there's easy money on the horizon they jump ship with uys holding a controller or keyboard in hand saying 'Just wait' and we will because how long before people stop giving a damn about motion and stop buying third party games? You know EXACTLY like the Wii... yhrn wehat will we let them back into our wallets no punishments for our loyal service and paying them $60 online to access P2P? When Microsoft have so few first party studio, so few first party games and had the cheeck to fire an entire studio for the reason that it just finished a damn good game but it'll be 1 year before they can make another and Microsoft doens't want to pay for that year... yet have what 500 MILLION on hand to soend on advertising alone? 500 MILLION! That's 5+ MMO's, 10+ new IP's with new engine and a 5 wait. Or 100's on XBL games.... or free XBL gold for everyone... but hey I own a 360 why should I care. Unlike Movies or Music I believe gamers have far more invested into a system, for many it's $1,000's of dollars and hours we should be treated as share holder not credit card holders.
there is nothing wrong with third party games. Remember That a third party games outsold every exclusive game on PS3. That dos say something right? And am happy to pay that small amount of money to Microsoft for their service. If by core you mean difficulty in games then try Ninja gaiden 2. No other game can beat it. Am saying that Am a core gamer and I dont have a problem buying lets say kinetimals. And stop with that 500 MILL crap, They want their product to reach to everyone. You dont like it dont comment, Dont like it sell your 360 if you have one and get another system and stop being such a babe about it.
If owning 1st party studio's was a prerequisite for bringing great games to a platform I doubt 360 would be selling so well at this point. Microsoft has been very upfront from the begining that they do not want to own lots of studio's, after over 5yrs it seems that strategy is working just fine. Owning alot of studio's is costly since you pay the employees and studio bills regardless of whether they are actively working on a game or not; operating costs, equipment, when they finish a game they take weeks, months off=$$$$. You preach about them spending 500mil and not owning many 1st party studios yet 360 software leads the charts and owning less studio's is a big reason why they have more revenue to pay for advertising, which at least increases the odds for a successful game, and more success attracts more 3rd parties. I've spent all my life playing games, I can hold my own in any genre and I love competition. I have some fond memories of kicking butt in games like Double Dragon, Mortal Kombat and I use to beat all my friends in Madden tournaments back in the day. I played everything this gen from Gears to Flower. I think that pretty much makes me as core a gamer as there is. I think I speak for alot of us core gamers who say we love to try different experiences. Now don't assume I buy just anything, I spend my money wisely and I think I have a pretty good track record when it comes to gaming choices. Why shouldn't microsoft branch out beyond the core shooters, sports, traditional games for those who are interested? You have this twisted sense of selfish entitlement. When you brought your 360 there is only one reasonable expectation= for microsoft to bring good games to the platform for a reasonable amount of time. That's it. Kinect is a plus, if you're not interested in it then, I don't see how microsoft has hurt you and your expectations with recent games like Reach and Fable3 out today, only a fanboy would assume that there won't be more core titles coming, why wouldn't there be?, microsoft non-motion game software continues to dominate the charts so why would microsoft not continue to pay 3rd parties for what has been a very lucrative strategy even while nintendo's wii was the top hardware seller, logic says they'll try to use kinect to strenghthen BOTH hardware and software sales not limit what has made them most successful. All companies advertise, microsoft just has the luxury because of their financial success to be in a position to spend more than others. Theres room in the industry for more types of games beyond what you like, I'm just as much a core gamer as you are so STOP BEING SELFISH and the rest enjoy this new experiences called kinect.
Gizmo's and Gadgets? ugh... Why not just say controllers?
Because you still need a controller. Remember trying to click buttons on the eyetoy? Holding you hand over 'X' for 15 second it'll be the same on Kinect. Also I have a feeling Microsoft will sell a Kinect controller.
but I'd hit that. She's a natural milf. No implants or injections. I may have been wrong about kinect afterall. It looks great and far beyond the accuracy of an eyetoy. If this adversement is honest it's the most innovative motion control to me. And it has voice control. Looks great!
If you call her a milf you do not have to specify that you would "hit that". A bit redundant dotn u think :)
stfu.... Me saying I would hit that doesn't automatically mean she is a milf. That's just saying I would hit that. A woman doesn't have to be a milf to be sexually attractive and saying she's a mother I would like to [email protected]@@ doesn't mean I would act on it if given the chance so think about what you say before to submit it. Really what you said was stupid and what was the point? Cause I used 'hit that'(as if you don't know what that means) instead of 'id have sex with her' and I didn't say it how YOU wanted me to that makes you smarter than me somehow? Petty mf. Stop worrying about how I speak and start worrying about if you'll ever lose your virginity. Your hurting inside and thats why you try to lord your pseudo-intelligence over others who you THINK aren't smart enough to defend themselves. Don't let my slang fool you. I'm far from dumb. I would call you a nerd but nerds are smart, cool and funny
And here is an example of successful advertising...I guess using attractive women is still the best way to go.
she had nothing to do with me noticing the features that I've seen for the first time for kinect so wtf are you talking about? I'm sorry, I'm not supposed to like anything xbox related because it makes fanboys like you cry. You don't know me dude and women don't hyptnotize me the way they do you. I actually am just impressed with kinect and it's features so [email protected] your thoughts and your belief of knowing what I'm thinking
Man you need to calm down...I was mostly joking, it's just if you read your comment that's how it seems you came to your conclusion. I wasn't attacking you, there's really no need for you to get so worked up over this...you'll be happier that way.
lol at title! and on real video says Microsoft Mom
Love the title & description! Very imaginative :D
I've seen better milfs
LMAO. that's for sure.
Like Mel B.
Curvy Mums bouncing up and down with their young teenage daughters while the camera goes into slow-moo so we can focus on those wonderful smiles and other "curvy" things in motion. I don't know if it's the best thing ever, or if it makes me slightly sick. The Man in me loves it, the gamer hates it... but dam look at those hips ! Mean while all the stuff I use to really love about gaming seems to be getting flushed down the loo, games are getting shorter and shorter with each sequel, gameplay and story mean little to nothing and all gamers are good for is selling overpriced DLC to because we are too fickle care we are getting burned. oh well...I will stop moaning now. I really hope this Kinect Craze goes away soon so we can get back to seeing videos about real games, I can just imagine next years MS E3 presentation is going to be one big zoo with dancers and kinectimals running around on screen while mums and 6 year olds run up and down on stage. I am turning into a grumpy old sod in case you can't tell and this stuff is really getting to me.
Came in expecting a hot mom, leaving extremely disappointed in my self as well as all of you.
I think we can all agree that Kevin Butler's NA ads are better.
