Meh..who cares? There are TONS of core games coming out on the PS3,360, and PC this year. I think playing those games would be more fun than whining about Kinect's lack of core games on an Internet forum.

but Microsoft said that this generation was aimed at core audiences as well as casual

was that a lie? (/sarcasm, of course it was)

they only make predictions based on their opinions. If anything the next generation of kinect "games" will be aimed at the core. Not so much a next gen kinect.

The current kinect camera is a very good system. We can see what creative minds can do with it on a diverse platform like the PC. The 360 is what is holding back the potential of the unit. Not the games or the developers.

The next xbox will likely have kinect support built in and will be a platform that core developers are wanting (as well as core gamers). MS said first and foremost that there will be core games made for kinect. Does that mean only on xbox 360???

the amount of core support is growing but the real display of affection will likely happen when the next xbox arrives.

If he bought one under the impression it would be supported, I think he has a right to bitch about it not having games. MS has no problem bragging about the number of units it sold, so there is nothing wrong with an expectant consumer who gave them something to brag about looking for justification for his purchase.

You need buttons or else it's pointless.

I dont give a crap. They can keep Kinect. I like my button mashing!

Halo and Gears Kinect confirmed.

I don't want to hear about the next kinect, I just got this one a few months ago - a lot more support for this one would be nice. Right now it's like my Wii, sitting there with a light on it.

theres no frickin games for it now aside from casual horse crap.

And nintendo is going pure hardcore again next gen. Its going to leave casual gimmicks like this in the dust
