That's a pretty amusing take on the future of Kinect.

DualConsoleOwner2893d ago

and abandon hardcore.

you can tell from their extremely weak line up... Xbox is going to become new wii...

Chaos692893d ago

Give it a rest bro; I see you on every X360 article, trolling.

deadreckoning6662893d ago (Edited 2893d ago )

Okay..thats it. Im gunna shut this crap down right now.

Why the hell do you want(or need) hardcore Kinect games when the 360 ITSELF has over 40 hardcore games coming out in 2011???

It makes NO sense. If a 360 owner is THAT interested in hardcore games...wouldn't they completely ignore Kinect and buy Gears 3, Forza 4, Battlefield 3, Mass Effect 3, Arkham City etc. instead?

Consider this analogy. You want a 5 star meal(hardcore games), and you have a filet mignon in front of you(a 360 with dozens of hardcore games)...yet you choose to eat Steak Umms(Kinect with casual games). And THEN you complain that Steak Umms wasn't the 5-star experience you were hoping for.

Your LITERALLY setting yourself up to be dissapointed lol.

@awesomeperson- Oh yes, I keep forgetting that N4G defies the laws of reality and muliplatform games aren't considered GAMES lol. The most played and bought PS3/360 games on the market, yet one day N4G decided that only exclusives are worth praising.

awesomeperson2893d ago


List... please?

I also think he's talking exclusives.

DelbertGrady2893d ago (Edited 2893d ago )

It's only been out for 2 months. What's funny is that Kinect has more announced hardcore titles than Move yet everyone keeps saying it's only for the casuals.

Child of Eden
Codename D
Project Draco
Rise of Nightmares
Star Wars
Steel Battalion.

To name a few.

Retro_Zombie2893d ago

How exciting can casual gaming possibly be? If you believe MS it's the future of gaming. : /

ScentlessApprentice72893d ago (Edited 2893d ago )

deadreckoning666, just for the sake of argument, why don't you provide a list of those 40 or so hardcore titles scheduled for the Xbox 360 in 2011?

I'm curious as to how much of those will be exclusive. Most likely not much. BTW dead, before you get on that, timed exclusive is not really exclusive.

@ Disagreers

Well why don't you guys just take point and provide the list that I've requested deadreckoning666 to do...Naw you won't. Just a bunch of blind, idiotic fanboys with a fast, steady index finger.

Biggest2893d ago

People ignore games that have no info. Have you noticed that no one is talking about Agent anymore? No one cares right now. This list:

Codename D
Project Draco
Rise of Nightmares
Star Wars
Steel Battalion.

is a bogus list. There is no info at all about those games. No release date. No gameplay info. Nothing. The one thing we DO know is that Kinect in completely limited. No one should expect awesome core experiences.

homer2893d ago

Killzone 3
Socom 4
Heroes of the Move
Infamous 2
Heavy Rain
Resident Evil 5
Besides, we all know Motion Controls suck, so that is nothing to brag about lol.

pixelsword2892d ago (Edited 2892d ago )

@ Homer

Ignore the last few seconds, though. :D

Dragon_Hiko2892d ago

Tis a shame you only have one bubble so you can't actually come back and debate in a thread. I actually agree with a lot of what you said there.

I don't think anyone has ever said the 360 doesn't have multi platform games coming out, it's always the discussion of it's exclusives. Kinect is the largest 'exclusive' thing that 360 owners have available to them now. It's going to offer potentially hundreds of games over the years to varying degree's of quality. But to use your analogy of the fillet mignon versus steak ums...(food is a bad analogy for games because you eat food then your done, where as people play a single game for years) A lot of people never wanted their restaurant to start pushing such low quality food. It shifts the focus of the restaurant, and brings in a different client el that the original group maybe didn't want there. It would be like combining a 5 star restaurant with meals over 50 bucks a plate, with a McDonalds. It's just, kind of weird, and most people would have just preferred more 5 star quality dishes. The people who want the McDonalds or steakums as you put it, could just go elsewhere if they wanted that from the beginning.

BUT. I do 100 percent agree with you on the fact that between the piddly handful of actual exclusive core games coming to the 360; just like the ps3, the 360 is getting some AMAZING third party games in 2011.

DigitalRaptor2892d ago (Edited 2892d ago )

Oho, really?

@ deadreckoning666

It's not that the 360 has a bad lineup, but as a defining Xbox 360 lineup, it's pretty weak. And of course multiplatform games matter and will be bought and played... it's just that all these years Xbox fanboys have claimed that PS3 has no games, and that it sucks. But now the PS3 has so much more to offer than the 360 does coming into 2011, it's only fair to remind them.

Moentjers2892d ago (Edited 2892d ago )

question is: if you like to play quality games and want or can afford only one platform, what will you choose ?

saw the pc-list: amazing !
no debate about the ps3-list
360 ? only when you think quality games are to be found on the kinect or you can hold on a year depending on the E3 announcements.

360 is loosing it's street value quickly now.

Been gaming since a little kid starting with Atari and I've never played causal games/shovelware. So im not about to start supporting it now.

None of my 3 systems ha shovelware on them and they never will. Give me core games any day of the week.

Dylantalon12893d ago (Edited 2893d ago )

kinect is a terrifying thing for xbox 360 fans because theyll continually get rubbish games that supports the device because the device is fundamentally flawed with dodgy, and laggy controls

sony can ditch the ds3 controls for any game on ps3 and implement the ps move but if the xbox 360 ditched the regular controller and used kinect itself, the literate fans would cry. fanboys wouldnt cry if xbox used kinect for every game even when the controls would be rubbish because these are the same sheeps that would eat sh.. from microsoft and say it taste like icecream.

Chaos692893d ago (Edited 2893d ago )

Why do you PS3 fanboys care so much about what X360 owners are going to play? This is insane.

Seriously, you have a PS3 it's awesome, so much exclusives to look forward to, etc and yet you still feel the need to troll?

Loner2893d ago (Edited 2893d ago )

Its because they are insecure about being in last place after 2 generations of dominance

jack_burt0n2893d ago

Not at all, please keep buying kinect and all the games released for it.

Its great that 360 only owners have so much love for the device, its great that its going to be the main focus of all MS internal studios.

In fact they should rework the entire 360 brand to cater purely for "jump and flail" game experiences.

PS3 fans are not insecure, its called discernment and 360 gamers lack any form of it.

Lyr1c2892d ago

I like how you just assume everyone who is bashing the 360 line-up, is a PS3 fanboy. The line-up sucks.

Believe it or not, some people just want good games regardless of the system. If the 360 has nothing worthwhile, we have the right to complain. With the console being $300, I'd feel pretty ripped too right about now.

Chaos692892d ago

How can you say the line-up sucks with games like Bulletstorm, MvC3, Dragon Age 2, Mass Effect 3, LA Noire, Gears 3, Forza, Codename: Kingdom...?
Aren't you interested in any of those games (I'm asuming you have a X360)?

Lyr1c2892d ago (Edited 2892d ago )

Half of the list I can play on my PS3. The only game that interested me out of your list, was Gears 3. Codename: Kingdoms has no information or gameplay revealed, and Forza doesn't interest me at all.

That's not enough.

Chaos692892d ago

So you have a PS3 (and a X360)? Meaning you can play those games I mentionned plus all the PS3 exclusives. What are you complaining about then?

dazreah2893d ago

I own it and its not laggy, but troll away.

homer2893d ago

I agreed because you told us we could troll away, not because I believe your lie about Kinect.

Lyr1c2892d ago

Your coordination must be some sorta messed up to believe that blatant lie....

gaden_malak2893d ago

This is actually concerning for gaming overall. While I doubt the PS3 fanboys are making the point but if Kinect is actually successful long term then I can see Sony and Nintendo doing the same thing (releasing a kinect-type console next-gen) which could essentially eradicate the hardcore games.

cereal_killa2892d ago (Edited 2892d ago )

"Why do you PS3 fanboys care so much about what X360 owners are going to play? This is insane."

Chaos there is no reason to troll your right about that but there is a reason to complain some of us PS3/360 owners like me have every right to complain about the 360 abandoning the hardcore games for casual kiddie games and I have every right to do so unlike the 360 Muppet's I don't drink the brain washing kool-aid and accept all the bullsh!t M$ keeps doing to me as a gamer I'm tired of the shrinking amount of games I'm getting year after year, I'm tired of M$ spending stupid amounts of cash that could be used to buy studios or secure real exclusives instead of timed DLC and money on a useless motion controller that will in the future be just like the Wii and Move by adding a controller just to add more games to it. You can all say what you want but all this crap M$ throws at some of you is uncalled for but some you seem to accept it like you M$s little b!tch and wonder why some people scream about it, maybe if some of you fanboys would stand down for this type of crap M$ will stop thinking they can do this stuff and not get away with it.

thebudgetgamer2893d ago

well, i don't have a problem with different ways of playing but if it becomes the only way to play (witch i highly doubt) i would be upset.

Blaine2893d ago

Hmm... So we really ARE closer to holo-decks than I thought! Yes!! Maybe I'll get to see them before I'm too old to enjoy them.
