Microsoft Are Pimps

NextGN writes: "Compared the PlayStation 3 the Xbox 360 is merely a toy. Although you can still watch movies and listen to music on your Xbox 360 the PlayStation 3 is far more accessible and is much more appealing to the adult market. It's the best choice for any household that has a home-theater - it's a Blu-ray player, gaming console, media center and a dedicated server all-in-one. It is also 3D ready. What is Microsoft doing to target the mature audience? It's very easy - they are pimping out their Kinect peripheral is it is the next step in adult entertainment."

This article hit smack center of the nail!

"It looks like Microsoft have done a great job literally pimping out the Kinect as, like Oprah said, the next big thing in video-games. They seem to have people from all walks of life covered - housewives – check! horny husbands – check! sports fans – check! teen girls – check! perverts – check! however, it does seem like Microsoft is forgetting someone… oh yeah, that’s right, you – the core fan-base!"

Thank you NextGN! Great that someone tackled this issue! Great article!

Sounds like damage control to me the only thing PS3 has got on the 360 out of everything mentioned here is 7.1 sound lol. That adult myth is a crock of Sh*T. PS3's base isn't as diverse as the 360 base.

I dont see any core gamer begging for Kinect. Im a core gamer and I'm pretty glad that "360 casual" and "360 core" have nothing to do with each other.

I have a hard time believing its 360 gamers crying about Kinect...why would a core gamer want core games with Kinect when no matter what they'll always be better with a traditional pad.

Same goes for Move. Ive never tried it and dont give a $hit about trying it one day.

By the way (a bit off topic) I tried Kinect for the first time this weekend with Joyride and though I dont believe the crap spouted here on N4G I was actually surprised it worked. Not the most precise thing in the world but worked correctly nontheless.

i'm a core gamer and (i think i speak for alot of core gamers)when i say, we're not hating on kinect and want it to fail because were anti M$.

we're hating on the fact that you spend over a billion dollars on something thats not targeted to me.

your closing down core gaming studios, uping the price of xbl (for fucking dlc packs lol), having no good exclusives (as far as we can see).

where is my reasurrence, in a product that i've invested in since 2001.am i not important to your bottom line anymore.where is my uncharteds, my MGS4's, my deamon's souls and GOW3'S ect.

i(and many like me)made your gaming division the success it is,with the promise that i would stay the focus of your business model only to be swaped to the side.(after all the money i've invested in are mautural belief)that core gaming is what we both, as company and comsumer want.

i know you must diversify to grow, but what if that growth comes @ the exspence of what i thought you stood for?

it's not a hate thing its a trust thing.your treating me like last years fling and moving on to greener pastures.

you used me like a cheap whore until you got what you wanted, then lift me high and dry.i don't feel hate for M$ I FEEL USED.

Weak...as if everyone outside of N4G think those games are better than anything on the 360 lmao.

Where is my PS3's Halo, Fable, Alan Wake, Lost Odyssey, Gears ? etc. Oh yeah, aint got none.

IndigoProductions2866d ago

As soon as I saw the Kinect on Oprah I completely changed my mind about getting it.

BobKotickIsTheKiller2866d ago

Kinect has been featured on many talk shows, not just Oprah.
