Kinect's New York launch misses expectations, but still a good party

GamesRadar: "I'm still reeling from all the free drinks and necessary-but-copious Tums popping I endured at Microsoft's Kinect launch afterparty, but I've sobered up enough to say that last night's very well-orchestrated event was, in a word, successful. Microsoft probably would have preferred something like "insane" or "unbelievable," but it wasn't quite there. Still, pretty damn cool."

$500 mil on ads, and it didn't even sell out at the launch event. I hear nervous investors dialing phones...

is that too much to ask??

i mean 500 million dollars would have given us 10 AAA titles.

i mean 1 exclusive game coming out in Q4 next year??
and it was delayed for "business reason"

500 million would give you way more than 10 AAA titles..

Kamikaze1352630d ago

The GTA IV DLC alone cost around 50 million dollars. That's just DLC...and for a game that came out two years ago. Game development is only getting more expensive, so year, 500,000,000 for 10 AAA titles seems about right.

"i mean 1 exclusive game coming out in Q4 next year?? "

I've owned a 360 since year one and there has never been just 1 exclusive.

Why don't you list me the Sony exclusives for next year that have an actual release date. Go ahead..

If you are going to just take whatever Sony announces as a confirmed game for 2011 then why not add the exclusive Crytek game to Xbox? Stack the deck.

You guys hate talking about sales but you can't stop talking about $500 mil that Xbox sent and I will put a bet on that most of you don't even own a 360.

just owned all you trolls, now go play uncharted.

Imperator2630d ago


okay, okay TWO 360 exclusives next year. Is that better? Now let's look at PS3:

Last Guardian
killzone 3
Motorstorm Apocalypse
Resistance 3
R&C All 4 One
Twisted Metal

And that's just off the top of my head. I'm probably missing quite a few. But yea, I think that proves my point.

I have a PS3, 360, and Wii.

There are only a couple exclusives announced for 360 next year with no guaranteed release dates.

There are too many PS3 exclusives announced for PS3 next year that I'll be able to buy, and even though none have set release dates yet, It's almost a sure thing that at least half will be released in 2011.

I haven't touched my Wii, except to replay a couple games, for a year or two.
