During a Kinect launch event, an army of dancers took over Times Square in New York to play Harmonix's launch title Dance Central. Looks like a pretty crazy scene.
Now that is how you launch a motion controller.
Now that is how you launch a motion controller.... with a dancing game. LOL!
Can you imagine the reaction you would have gotten 5 years ago from Xbox owners if they knew five years from now Microsoft's big holiday console event was eye toy style motion controls, Bungie out of Microsoft and only 3 first party studios.
What better way to showcase movement than with dance?
Lets get this out of the way. For the people that don't know 42st is always that packed. No all those people did not show up just for Kinect.
So many butthurt $ony people everywhere, it's annoying.
dance central doesnt show u moving.. and no character from the game mimic your movements... u have to mimic theirs.. so its like the game is the controller and u are the game.. or something like that who knows what they were thinking....
all of sony people are dying to look retarded in front the screen playing kinect while a frend of ours most likely records it n posts it on the internet lol
MinskyM + 1h ago Can you imagine the reaction you would have gotten 5 years ago from Xbox owners if they knew five years from now Microsoft's big holiday console event was eye toy style motion controls, Bungie out of Microsoft and only 3 first party studios. I wish I could give you 10000 bubbles. I never thought the day would be here to where bots are going ga-ga over an ADD-ON to a console... which doesn't play halo. Hell's frozen over. PS, So it was ok to call Wii 'not a real console' since it was dominating the casual market all this time, that the games were for kids & soccer moms... but tonight on Oprah...? So hilarious to see Microsoft totally turn casual 500 million dollars worth, so now all the halo kids will be cursing out others while playing dance central? This generation is hilarious. Fact is this, Microsoft has muppets like Omega & others that will buy MS anything no matter what. Well everything except AAA exclusives.. but thats not the point...
Though those were televised on MTV. Maybe when MTV was even showing music.
I believe it was...lol
Now that is how you waste money instead of making AAA games /fixed
Fable 3, Alan Wake, SC:Conviction, ME2, Halo Reach and Crackdown 2 all this year on the 360 thanx to MS's cash. Dont worry boy, theres enough to go around. @people below: So I guess the PS3 has had only ONE AAA title this year: GOW3. According to your definition of "AAA". Damn, thats pretty thin for a console that supposedly has gazillions of AAA every year!
all mediocre titles...Except for Reach.
I said AAA games, the only one you listed was Halo Reach which is the only thing my 360 will have until Gears of War thanks to... wait for it... Kinect
SCC, alan wake, SC:C and crackdown two all which are not AAA games - metascores below 90. That's a fact. Whether they're good or not is an opinion.
@ COLD 2000 : So you're saying 1 AAA exclusive a year is thin even though the 360 only has 1 AAA exclusive this year? LMAO! don't forget that the ps3 has had more AAA exclusives than the 360 for the last 3 years and that LBP2 and GT5 (both almost definitely AAA games) are yet to come out, which would give the PS3 3 AAA games in 2010 and the 360 one
That's why you are rich and Microsoft poor because you know so much about market.
Fable 3 = 80 Alan Wake = 83 Splinter Cell: Conviction = 83 Crackdown 2 = 70 Halo Reach = 91 ME2 = 96 Wow, so only two AAA games for 360 this whole year? Nice, oops..forgot to add that ME2 is no longer exclusive so it's down to 1...same as PS3. Crackdown 2 was a joke, Splinter Cell was a letdown, Alan Wake was good but on the repetitive side, and Fable 3....I gave up around Fable 2 and the reviews aren't showing much promise for the 3rd so I'll wait for a price drop. Funny how that works huh? You had all these "amazing" exclusives only to be stripped down for what they really are...mediocre games that rode the hype train all the way to town. Besides, the lineup for next year is looking amazing...how about that 360...? Gears annnd....? If you want to troll, do it right and don't make yourself look like a fool more so than what you already are. ;)
@ jaces: ME2 is multiplat; on the PC as well. Also soon to be released on ps3 so its not a 360 exclusive
sorry cold. I only enjoyed ME2 and Reach this year. Fable 3 is bad. I can't help myself to continue it and Fable 2 was better. SCC was short worth a rental. AW was ok not my style of game. Don't care for CD2 either. Put it frankly, only ME2 and Reach were the heavy hitters this year for the 360.
you really cant call it a controller
Kinect will be huge. It will replace Wii's in: *Assisted Living Communities *Office building(offices) *Hospitals *Retirement Homes *Health Centers *Fitness, low level use in other businesses Kinect will blow up in new places like: -Taverns -Night Clubs -Bars/Pubs -Daycare centers -Malls Dance Central will be a system seller for both Kinect and the Xbox 360 for sure.
Your on crack cause unlike the wii kinect doesnt work.
The commuters don't seem to happy. "dance, dance, dance" your ass is missing dinner.
wow is all i can say. i don't think any diehard kinect defender here can honestly give me a valid reason to get this camera that has nothing of interest for me. and i dont want to hear about me being a fanboy because i own all 3 systems. i want someone to give me a truly honest reason for getting this camera. one more thing more of my systems have shovelware in their collection. so again give me a gooooooooooooooooooooooooood reason to waste my money.
sony spent on exclusives thanks
i really dont care about motion cotrollers but some people around here have a huge pain in the azz. lol!!!
Agree with you...Sony Marketing Team watch and learn...LOL

Aren't commercials part of the marketing division?
The Move has sold nearly 3 million WW without any major ad campaign. I think that's a lot more impressive than MS' approach.
You mean shipped.
