Mark Wahlberg Teams Up With Kinect for Xbox 360 to Support Boys & Girls Clubs of America

Just hours before the launch of Kinect for Xbox 360 in the heart of Times Square, actor/producer Mark Wahlberg joined Microsoft Corp. and Boys & Girls Clubs of America to set down the controller, get off the couch and stand up for kids across the country. Beginning today, Microsoft will donate Kinect for Xbox 360, 4GB Xbox 360 consoles and two games -- "Kinect Adventures" and "Kinect Sports" -- to thousands of Boys & Girls Clubs nationwide.

*Kinect brings back THE BACK STREET BOYZ!!!!"

Gaming is taking a rough beating this gen. The industry has been so soiled :(

zootang2482d ago

Gaming used to be a niche market. What happened?

deadreckoning6662482d ago (Edited 2482d ago )

Its for the Boys and Girls Club..you know, a GOOD cause. Say what you want about Kinect, but Mark Wahlberg is one of those celebrities that gives back to the community. I've seen many of his interviews and he seems to be a really down to earth guy.

"Gaming used to be a niche market. What happened?"

Money happened..the broader the audience you make games for, the more games you sell, thus...more income.

Christopher2482d ago

Boys and Girls Club is a great cause. But this aid is nothing but marketing for Microsoft. Regardless, I think these kids could use actual people in their lives that care and not just distractions, but this is better than nothing.

I wonder how much of that $500 million they used to pay ol' Marky Mark? :D

ALFAxD_CENTAURO2482d ago (Edited 2482d ago )

$500 Millions to this type of publicity instead of making good games for gamers.

sinclaircrown2482d ago

Wasting $500 on advertising is better than teaming up with a good cause for advertising?

You'd rather they were spending it on games, than helping a good cause as part of their marketing?

Pennywise2482d ago

Oh Marky Mark - The originator of the duck face.

Terrible actor. What the f*ck kind of audience is Microsoft trying to target with Kinect?

plb2482d ago (Edited 2482d ago )

Ellen - Gay/Lesbian community
Oprah - Soccer moms/bored housewives
Justin Bieber/Seacrest - Tweens
Marky Mark - Wannabe gangstas/thugs/chavs etc

BXbomber2482d ago

Wow so he gets bashes and called a terrible actor cuz of him teaming up with kinect? Dude grow the f*** up he's a great actor stop hating cuz he's promoting something u hate

hoops2482d ago (Edited 2482d ago )

Watch Departed. Walhberg was credited with stealing scenes from the other actors in that Movie. His acting in that movie was great. Every actor at some time makes one or more craptastic movies. Departed was not one of them.
It was a break out role for him

Elven62482d ago

Watch Shooter, The Other Guys, The Italian Job, Invincible, etc. The Fighter looks pretty good too.

We as gamers should be the first to know someone can land a bad movie (I kinda liked The Happening)or game but can still rebound and do great things.

sinclaircrown2482d ago

Was a terrible script. Terrible directing.

The actors were the only good thing in the movie.

CernaML2481d ago (Edited 2481d ago )

Uh no. Maybe you should grow up you sensitive little pr*ck. Excuse me for thinking he's a terrible actor after watching Max Payne and The Happening.

Sorry for offending you by making you think I was bashing Kinect, crybaby.

LOl @ cernaML.. Yeah sure, his whole body is half of your basement chair sitting bottoms, his earning millions of $ because of his acting , and earlier days of singing and modeling, i'm sure your one anonymous useless comment will much make difference to anyone in the world.

On the other hand if he was pushing sony products you would've been praising him to high heavens.

CernaML2481d ago

No, I wouldn't. And considering your history of Sony bashing, I can see why YOU are the one praising him you simple minded little sheep. :)

Will you also be praising Justin Beiber when he (hopefully does not) becomes a big movie star and earns millions of dollars because of his singing and Kinect partnership?

I didn't like The Italian Job. I didn't like Max Payne. I f*cking hated The Happening. Get your head out of your asses and stop crying about my own opinionz. Dear God... and they say PS3 fanboys are the most sensitive?

8thnightvolley2482d ago

OMG... MS.. is going on steroids... bloody hell

redDevil872482d ago

All they need is a chuck norris team up and all will be complete

plb2482d ago

Ah chuck norris/kinect jokes would be truly awesome.

Elven62482d ago

Dolph Lundgren is where it's at now!

Seriously, a bunch of theives broke into his house last year in Spain, terrorized his wife, saw a family picture (recognizing Lundgren) and ran!
