According to a recent study conducted by The New York Times, 72% of Microsoft Kinect owners falsely believe using the device makes them desirable to the opposite sex.
Where do they get this absurd information from, I think polls are fundamentally flawed as most people will just say whats funny, rather than what they actually feel i.e. "consumers purchased the Kinect 22% of the time for personal enjoyment, 6% for its magical healing properties, and 72% to attract a potential mate." Magical healing properties? You gotta be sh!tt!ng me.
lol HI honey, uu whats that?! Umm, its one of those kinects *poker face*
"72% of Kinects Purchased Intended to Attract the Opposite Sex" ROFL...that has to be one of the craziest things I've ever heard.
I beleive it. Think about it.. gives u an excuse to feel up on the chick while playing.. laughing and tickling her to try to screw her up in the game... its an excuse to get close and hook up. I mean I cant fault anyone who buys it for that purpose.
Oh no, I agree that a couple people bought it for that reason...I just think the 72% part is a bit ridiculous.
I dont know.. i think it sounds about right. I mean does kinect really have any games that a typical gamer would buy it for. I am sure they will at one point.. but until then ur only going to be "bowling" if u got a woman in teh room. Men dont get together so they can bowl... Unless they into other men.
72% of oxygen inhaled is during pursuit of the opposite sex so I will believe it.
best news ive heard all week, also i wont be buying a kinnect anymore.... the women dont think it's cool :'(
Go Go Gadget obvious joke... That's because women prefer the Move wand. HIIIIIIIIIIIYOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
in theory if you are overweight and buy a Kinect, work your a$$ off daily on it and become buff, you may then become more desirable to the opposite sex I Believe that 62.5% of the time most people talk crap though
It would be impossible to become "buff" using Kinect unless they release a strong man game that comes with free weights, dietary supplements and an instruction manual on how to eat & train correctly. People who buy a video game peripheral in order to get fit are delusional. It's as retarded as going on an LCHF diet.
True that diet is key and in order to build muscle you need resistance like using weights. But technically you could lose weight so long as you burn more calories than you intake. Playing kinect "could" result in the loss of weight and strengthen your leg muscles.
I agree that diet is a major factor, but the basic theory of burning more calories than you put in works, so its not a useless tool to becoming healthy or fit, call me delusional, but I have lost weight using Kinect (Your Shape) as part of a whole workout, so thats fact you cant dispute! It also has workouts that use weights which have helped define my arms
they need a wii for that, duh
Damnit. These normal people coming in here stealing our video games.
72% of Kinects Purchased Intended to Attract the Opposite Sex being a gods gift to women i woundnt know about such matters
Then 72% of purchases were made out of stupidity. If you want a purchase that'll get the ladies talking to you, buy a puppy.
I have only one question. Does it work? lol Heck I'm taken but you never know, if things go south don't think I won't bag a kinect for mate obtaining purposes lol
Another lame marketing ploy! Why am I even commenting on it arghhhhhhhh! Would have loved to known the sample of 2000 douchebags who said these responses :D
I wonder if my Move could get me some girls. The shape of the device is definitely more appealing...
So... 360 gamers think buying Kinect will get them in with the ladies? That's really interesting. Hmm.
