E3 2011: Why Can’t We Use Our Headsets? – Microsoft Conference Summary (StickTwiddlers)

That's actually a good question.

Thats EXACTLY what I said before.

It would work so much better if people didn't have to shout clearly to their TV for everything!

Especially since you can't exactly have your Surround sound booming while playing the game with that trying to pick you up haha.

A headset would fix alot.

Can you imagine playing through ME and for EVERY choice having to shout at your TV? haha, I'll give that 15 min if that...

Obviously microsoft believe in gimmicks, seeing as it worked for others... y'know..........mentioning no names.

RedDead2628d ago

Wait I thought we CAN use headsets...

MasterCornholio2628d ago

And why is it exclusive to Kinect? WIth any headset they could do this tech. But they choose only Kinect because Microsoft wants to sell Kinect Devices. But the question is will people buy kinect just so they can use voice commands?

Why cant they use move?

Because "Jazz Hands" is the way forward!

That is what I was saying to myself. Why would we need kinect when we have headsets?

Because our headsets don't have motion sensing controls?

Not defending the peripheral, but it does have some cool games for my kids while I play the regular core games (mostly third party, but still).

Not mad at all about the lack of core games thus far - the Ghost Recon demo looked promising - needs a better movement system, instead of the "rails" system employed by Fable and Star Wars.

Exactly, Microsoft really pissed me off with this conference. They are pretty much trying to force people to buy Kinect. I'm not gonna be forced to buy anything, especially something I find kinda ridiculous like Kinect.
