bundles that´s why

@Tinasumsum here:

Tinasumsum2891d ago

Dam I didn't see any DC bundles I would of got one. Does anybody know if this troll is telling the truth?

blue7xx72891d ago (Edited 2891d ago )

I'm pretty sure the only Bundled Kinect game is Kinect Adventures but Kinect Sports and Dance Central are not bundled. So the sales of those games are because people want them.

@mightyboot but they are not given away for free like Kinect adventures which is given away free with the Kinect sensor for $150 the ones you listed are priced at $220 and $250 so they are not given away free.

Plus NPD doesn't count bundled sales that is why Kinect adventures is not on the list and the links you provided are actually pretty bad deals you don't save a dime if you were to buy them individually.

There are not really bundles, as you pay full price for the games. They are not inculded in the box with Kinect.

Your Shape Fitness and may be Kinectimal will be there soon too. You guys are going to be even more pissed off

jetlian2891d ago

those aren't offical bundles. those the ones retailers used to get more money.

I had to buy the offical 250gb with forza 3 and alan wake + 3months live and extra controller for 370. they didn't sell it by itself

That said, move is nowhere to be seen either. Proves Wii still owns this one.

BryanBegins2891d ago

So didn't GT5...

Yes I'm trolling, but you opened the door lol

Kudos to Kinect. I like it and having fun with my friends. That's all that matters.

FailOverHero2891d ago

But they still both sold over 1 million. Unless you're saying npd are lying. Just cos they didn't make the top 10 doesn't mean their 1 million milestone gets taken away. It's a top 10 list not a million seller list
As for wii owning this, did you just compare a 80 million install base system's software sales to a 7 million install base system's software sales? Wow and what were your findings sherlock?

Vherostar2891d ago

Yeah MS did good with the timed exclusive on Dance central.. Seems it helped sell Kinect as I doubt it would have sold as many if it was released on both platforms from launch as was originally intended. I may get for PS3 once it finally gets realeased.

ManGastaS2891d ago

Dance central for Move, this is not the same experience as kinect!

strickers2890d ago

Actually it could play very much the same.The game uses
silhoutte tracking,just like all those old Eyetoy games.It's not using depth perception and Singstar Dance is very similar but with 2 dancers AND 2 singers playing at once.With Move sensors used as well,it can track complex motion.
Just Dance 2 is for Wii and guess what?The most successful dance game on the basic Wii controls.
You can cheat it,like a Karaoke game but anyone who really wants to play it won't.
Some of you have really bought the Kinect hype

gypsygib2891d ago (Edited 2891d ago )

Dance Central I understand, Kinect Sports means over 1 million people got suckered.

SlipperyMooseCakes2891d ago

Kinect Sports is actually a really well done game. It's one of the most polished Kinect games by far. Rare did a great job with the game.

baodeus2891d ago (Edited 2891d ago )

yeah i was hesitate to get it due to the review. But i just went and buy it anyways, and everyone were just having a blast with it. It is really fun.

mightyboot2891d ago Show
radphil2891d ago

Actually Kinect Sports is good. It's the other one, Kinect Joyride, which is sketchy.

Overall though, if Dance Central WASN'T up there, then something was wrong.

Kon2891d ago

Kinect sports is by far the best Kinect game out there.

fr0sty2891d ago

and yet it falls flat on it's face when put against wii sports or sports champions.

testerg352891d ago

fr0sty, how is Kinect Sports falling flat on its face?

ChristianGamer2891d ago

The only one that falls flat here is the one nobody seems to be buying...

Congratulations. Kinect sports and Dance Central are the best Kinect games i have played.

gotgame19852891d ago

Playstation root constitutes piracy, argues company - letting slip it has sold 41m consoles - but law precedent set last summer may be on the hackers' side

it looks like the ps3 has along way to go to catch up with 360
thats 9 mill behind 360 unless sony forgot to mentioned its up to
date numbers, if these are the real numbers i don`t see why this isn`t one of the hottest topics on this site. and this was news on one of the article were they were talking about the ps3 hack.

MajestieBeast2891d ago

I dont understand half of what you are saying.

Seijoru2891d ago

It sold 41m for 3rd quarter, 4th quarter sales haven't been announced yet dumbass. And while you try to argue sales, PS3 owners will be playing games instead of shovelware kinect games.

artsaber2891d ago

Dance Central is a great game that works as advertised. It is responsive and fun, and is a testament to what a great Kinect game can do. Every sale was earned, my family enjoys it.

In case someone wants to know, these Kinect games are good so far:
Dance Central, Kinectimals (especially if you have kids), and Kinect Sports seems decent - I only demoed it
