"It isn't as precise as playstation Move"

Right there! That's coming from MSNBC! I'm so sick of haters on N4G saying CNet and MSNBC cater their reviews to 360 because it's MS owned.... Just because a company is a division of another larger corporation doesn't mean their reviews are paid off and skewed.

still a gamepad for hardcore precise gaming. The casuals don't see lags a big big deal, only fangirls do. Thanks for the reminder

DORMIN2542d ago

This review is surprisingly obvious.

"Fangirls"?

I guess I am a fangirl cause I want my product to work properly. Casual does't mean you settle for mediocre.

T9X692542d ago

To be fair NecrumSlavery, you don't own a 360 :P

"It isn't as precise as playstation Move"
I love it when people say that.

Move isn't doing half the the things kinect is doing so no surprise there. Kinect sells because people know Move is just part of a 2D camera tracking two points vs full body motion in 3D

kasasensei2542d ago

Stop lying. Please. Move is tracking your movements perfectly in 3d, just try it. And apologize.

theoneb2542d ago

Play that game then get back to me about 3D space. Kinect will never I repeat never have a game like this or anything that needs precision.

Clarence2542d ago

How can honestly say that with videos out like this

I'm not dissing Kinect, I'm just saying that a MS owned company can provide non-biased reviews.

Abriael2542d ago (Edited 2542d ago )

admitting the obvious hardly counts as "non-biased review" when the reviewer is obviously scrambling to find every little positive thing to say about Kinect to shed some positive light in what seems more and more like a pitch black picture.
Also, the tone of that sentence clearly says "it's not as precise as playstation move, but it isn't important, come on! it's fun! It's as precise as the wii!".

As of 2005, MSNBC was not owned by Microsoft anymore. MSNBC.com, however, is a shared ownership between NBC and Microsoft.

KratosGirI2542d ago (Edited 2542d ago )

People who think that a reviewer is biased just because it's part of their parent company's product are delusional.

While I don't care about Kinect since it's not for me, people who scream ZOMG TEH BIAS! just because of the site/company/etc is stupid.

visualb2542d ago

just because MicroSoft Networks states an OBVIOUS FACT, it doesn't mean there's proof they they are always absolutely unbiased...

seriously fanboys are horrible but to sink to their level of extremes is equally retarded

Question: Why does it have a wii tag?

brstmp2542d ago (Edited 2542d ago )

MSN?? are they not MICROSOFT?,..
