Also Microsoft was behind the Dreamcast's software.

REDMOND, Wash., May 21, 1998

" REDMOND, Wash., May 21, 1998 — Microsoft Corp. today announced it will collaborate with Sega Enterprises Ltd. on Sega's new Dreamcast home video game system, slated for release in Japan on Nov. 20, 1998, and in the rest of the world in 1999. As a result of the collaboration, Microsoft will provide an optimized version of the Microsoft® Windows® CE operating system with integrated DirectX® services as the operating system for use with Dreamcast."

All that Dreamcast video camera software stuff was of Microsoft design.

Disagreeing with you because you said something negative about Playstation.

Sorry, Jack.

thebudgetgamer2033d ago

i bet you still call move a wii copy dont ya?

darthv722033d ago

Dont you know how it works. It isnt about who does it first. It's who can sell it better.

There are lots of "rerun" products being marketed today that tried their hand years prior to no avail. Shamwow and snuggie are two that come to mind.

Saying eyetoy did it first is pointless.

LMAO!!! Abcnews doing videogame reviews now? What's next Walmart's review of Kinect?!? Why isn't Oprah's review up yet? And where is Reggis & Kelly's Kinect impressions? lol what a joke...

News outlets always rate "hot new tech". This sort of proves Kinect is in the same demographic as the iPad and such.

radphil2033d ago

I wouldn't call it the same demographic. You guys keep forgetting that 500 million for marketing...it's not the same form of "demographic" as what a product targets towards. Kinect does not have the same form as iPad.

You are conflicting "demographic" with the term "fad".

the people at Abcnews probably never played a good game in their lives.

Imperator2033d ago

They've probably never played any video games PERIOD. These guys should not be reviewing games and, honestly, their opinion is that last thing I would listen to.

My question is: Where does MS go from here. Will MS switch to a 2 console strategy? The 360 for the casual and a new box for the core?
