Cause regardless if it`s true, it`s hilarious.
lol i am still laughing at this "MS developing racist technology"
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.
@MariaHelFutura lol ,thats fucked up bro.
I`m coloured folk.... Kinect hates me. LOL.
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.
Neither do i!
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.
Someone needs to read past the headline...
Considering it was a black man that demoed it at E3 with no problems, this is complete BS. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
LOL. That guy wasn't black! No self respecting brotha would have Justin Boober on his Xbox. j/k. But no seriously
we heard stories like this before from other cams besides kinect http://www.youtube.com/watc...
TOTAL BS! It was a black man that demoed it at E3 with no problems... One of my best buds is African American & he is LOVING the heck out of Kinect. BS like I said!
It's just PS3 fanboy rage.
I ran into a person today who doesn't even game and we got on the topic of new tech and mentioned Kinect and the first thing he said was "I hear it doesn't work with black folks". Of course, the gaming press being the failure they are have not even made any effort to correct it. The Seattle PI and Consumer Reports had to be the ones to do it. The gaming press is a complete joke these days, they actually ran with the rumor and made it worse and never even bothered to check facts just for hits. I actually find the comments here(the non fanboy ones) to be more informative than the actual sites posting news. Totally ashamed of the gaming press.
It seems lots of people can't use it properly. It just so happens that there is more black people who don't know how to use it. Also, regardless if it were working properly or not, Kinect is still gonna fail.
Even if it's true, I know Microsoft wouldn't admit it because it's bad. Honestly, this could be Kinect's RROD issue and Microsoft would still deny it just like they did RROD
