Cause regardless if it`s true, it`s hilarious.

lol i am still laughing at this "MS developing racist technology"

MariaHelFutura2478d ago (Edited 2478d ago )

Who ever doesn`t find that funny, sucks.

Racist Technology. LOL.

Someone the other day said "The tech of the future has 50s standards" I`ve been laughing about that one on and off all day.

Kinect should come w/ a rope, a cross and some lighter fluid.

edit: KKKinect. LOL.

Come to think of it. Their Kinect debut did look like a clan rally.

Then I guess that means Apple is racist, as the iPhone is only available in black

Lulz, even my black cat and my doberman are racist.. woof!

Enough already, haha, we get it.

It's racist! Why don't lighter complexioned people have to turn on the lights?

Well I had fun with it yesterday and been playing all night with my family, so I knew it was BS, but yesterday some fanboy said I must work for microsoft just because I said kinect works well for me and I'm black. Anyway, I'm not offended by all the racist jokes, most racist are too cowardly to say it to someones face so it doesn't bother me.

"Rodney King voice" Can't we all just get along....

It's a catchy headline that's for sure.

DigitalRaptor2478d ago

Why would anyone think it's racist?

It's just an unfortunate drawback, that Microsoft should have got right.

You're mistaken for sure from a owner with dark skin. I have no problems with one lamp on with a 80 watt bulb. Works with every light on and with little light. Never tried it in the dark because I don't watch TV in complete dark. Kinect is no more racist than a T100 Terminator or a Predator is.

I have not had a single problem with Kinect, no twitchy legs, broken arms, it also recognizes my face without a problem.

Why does race excite people so much? I don't get it, especially when its not true. Even though it has been proved to be false people still latch on to this "story". DUMB!!

Lol at the disagree's, you people are just racist pricks.

The problem is calling the gaming industry's blog and opinion culture "media". Sensationalism draws hits, simple as that. The gaming "media" will never have the credibility of other entertainment mediums because they don't have the integrity.

"It's just an unfortunate drawback, that Microsoft should have got right. "

Hello???? Did you even read the opening description? It's BS, FUD, propaganda. So stop with perpetuating false information.
