Los Angeles: Kids and games. When Tim Schafer of Double Fine stepped on stage to demo his Sesame Street-branded Kinect game, he explained how his 3-year-old daughter was in his mind when he developed the idea.
Can't help but feel this is a waste of his talent. How the hell do you go from Psychonauts to this?
Being screwed over by Bobby Kotick, must of did more damage than we thought.
Microsoft officially gone insane with kinect.
what the heck is this???
its funny because microsoft thinks Nintendo sells a lot because of its kiddy games. It sells a lot because its Nintendo and its a friendlier known name with Mario and parental controls with a 150 price. unlike XBOX 360 > BLACK box with sphere with (X) , with a 50 buck subscription
I have no problem with variety...but taking time at E3 to show this to a hardcore crowd??? Maybe Microsoft will offer a Big Bird skin for Gears of War with a preorder!
As much as the hardcore gamers cry about this title being released it does look nice for it's target audience. My 4 year old neice is autistic and loves the interactiveness games offer but there is nothing really out there for her that this game offers. She's a big fan of sesame street and i can see her enjoying this game alot. Not only would she get a story but she would get to interact with the characters. Bottom line is obviously this game or kinect for that matter was meant to target hardcore gamers. If you don't like it that's fine you don't have to buy it but don't get on forums downing a game that isn't even for your target audience.
I respect your opinion, but E3 is for the hardcore unless something changed when I wasn't looking?
Yeah when I dont know many 4 year olds that are up watching such a mature E3 show. Id be watching pokemon
To my knowlege E3 is an entertainment expo to showcase what your platform has to offer for current and potential customers. Therefore E3 would be the perfect place to show that your company is broadening it's horizon to suit a wider variety of consumers. As of now the hardcore gamers have been won over. Microsoft and Sony realize that hardcore gamers who most likely pirate the games anyway aren't the goldmine to go for. Nintendo has proven that. They have to try and get more casual gamers on board which is why you see alot of PS Move and Kinect stuff at E3. The Core fans don't have anything to worry about because they're always in gaming news and will find information on hardcore games as soon as it's released where as E3 is a big one time marketing chance to catch more of those casual gamers. @spitfire i never said she was watching the show at all she wasn't meant to. the expo was meant to show parents who have the consoles that they also offer games that would be kid friendly so that they can play along with their son/daughter/neice/nephew/or younger sibling. It's a great idea as long as they get the price right because it fills that void
@spitfire my 5 year old cousin watched the EA conference with me, and 5 minutes later he left to watch pokemon lol
Its not that bad. I bet you there are people out there with small children who are dying to play games like this. I dont see why every game has to be for adults the younger audience have the right to enjoy their console as well.
Do we really want our toddlers to have access to the vicious xbox live users?
I don't understand. -From the looks of it, it would make no sense whatsoever to give this game xbox live support, meaning they wouldn't have access to any xbox live users at all let alone vicious ones.
Halo 5 will be starring SpongeBob and Postman Pat if they continue in this direction.
