Gaming Irresponsibly's Ryan Hillis talks about how Kinect took E3 by storm and what you can expect from the Xbox Kinect this year.
249.99 (& 299.99) psvita steals e3 more like.
I'm pretty sure this is a joke article. Every report I've read have said the exact opposite of this. And even from pro KinectBox sites.
more like Kinect stole the 360's conference from all the viewers
Holy sh*t. Are they serious? lulz
The article is a joke!
you mad :-)
I love this article. The title provided some good lulz. Thanks lol.
Kinect was all voice control (As if a cheap microphone couldn't do that) and on-rails games (exciting). They managed to completely destroy Fable and make for a waggle-fest of a Star Wars game. It "stole" Microsoft's E3 conference, that's for sure. It was 90% of the show.
it stole time that i can never get back watching that crap on my tv yesterday. they took all that time yesterday to shove the shovelware crap down our throats. i wanted to rake out my eyes watching that crap.
ill be getting ngp. hope it destroys nintendo 3ds because if you haven't noticed they are worse than Microsoft they've been recycling the same sh*t since NES lol they've milked metroid, zelda and mario more than Microsoft has milked halo, fable and forza and its the TRUTH. i hate Nintendo and Microsoft is beginning to piss me off. they have the money so why don't they just buy as many 3rd party studios as they can afford to make exclusives ?
But if people still enjoy and want those franchises then what's the problem?
"Kinect Steals Day One of E3" LMAO what a sheep
PSVITA most def stole today, the only thing to keep sony from takin the show, would be a wii-wii in the morn.
If you say so.
I am not a handheld guy, so Vita didn't do it for me. For my money, Kinect showed me what I wanted to see. Didn't get too excited for the PSVita.
So your getting Disneyland adventures?
@Joni-Ice Or he could get Ghost Recon future soldier, to name but one.
yeah tudor. To name but a 'few' would of made....you know...a stronger case. When you cant even name a few that are exclusive you have to admit theres a problem my friend. Im not too excited about the time given to vita...yeah i know its new hardware and that but i knew i was getting it anyway so i didnt need to be sold to. I just wanted Sony and MS to show more core games i knew nothing of. Hard i know but im just saying how i feel. And your comment below shows how one sided you are. You get excited more by kinect potential than in your face probable game of the year contenders..Right! Laughable but each to his own I suppose
That made me http://i4.photobucket.com/a...
Ghost Recon looks awesome...but the Kinect mechanics for moving around and shooting are still lame. Wouldn't you rather have something in your hand to simulate a weapon or other equipment instead of just opening your hand to fire? Remember Kevin Butler using his hand as a gun to mock Microsoft...they haven't even made it that far yet! To me, we are really yet to see a hardcore gamer Kinect game and in some ways I kind of doubt that one will every exist. Ghost Recon is a fine example of how Kinect can be integrated into a hardcore game but the gunsmith feature is really only a gimmick and nothing more.
getting sesame street brah?
Daddy ! Each to their own but most of us n4g users are core type gamers for lack of a better term. Motion controls are an extra NOT our bread n butter of gaming. Ms's direction was predicted and if this casual stuff is what floats your boat then sail on. Good for you...well done!
so u getting the swiming game!
"Kinect showed me what I wanted to see." How old are you? Or are you shopping for your kids? MS has taken the people that put the 360 on the map and kicked them to the curb in favor of the people that put the Wii on the map. It has nothing to do with whether the tech works, it is about MS not maintaining some sort of fan loyalty. There was an article the other day on N4G concerning fan loyalty. This is why Sony fans are loyal. Sony can explore the family genre without doing so at the cost of the core gamer. @tudors, Joni could also get a real core device (Move) and pick up that same Ghost Recon on the PS3. Joni could also then have access to numerous other core games AS WELL AS family titles. Years ago, Star Wars games were great and Star Trek titles were bad. It now seems that trend is reversing itself. This article is actually serious which just goes to show how this gamingirresponsibly blog hasn't a clue about what occurred yesterday.
OMG what a place to shop! out of all place...it's got to be E3?
I gave you a disagree.. I agree what you are saying to a point but no need to bring the move into it. kenict, move, wii are all bad for gaming.
I don't see how there can really be a general consensus on who 'won' or 'stole' the show. One person could be very excited for the Kinect news, while another could be very excited for the Vita news. To each his own, quit thinking like a bunch of sheeple.
One of the most smartest things Ive heard all day
PS Vita pricing stole the show (for the day) IMO.
Stole it... yes, but not in a good way! We will all remember the epic fail MS conference of 2011.
Yes Kinect robbed me of ever having the desire to play my xbox ever again, thus I've turned to a sony fanboy.
(Creepy Sith voice) I've been converted since last September. You much to experience young one.
the writer must be silenced at once!
lol, Kinect is the reason why MS's conference was so bad. If they would have cut out 30 minutes of Kinect and just have the conference be 30 minutes shorter it would have been better.
That's been a running theme for MS for the past 3 years now. Ok, so maybe the first year people were excited about its pretaped possibilities, but not so much any more. MS has seriously been lagging on the Core software front, and I for one would be pretty sad if I only owned a 360. To be honest I thought the Sony presser lack a few big game reveals, but the 3D set up and PSVita made up for a lot of that (I think most people realized that Vita was going to soak up a good share of Sonys press event thought). I look forward to seeing that Nintendo brings to the table today.
The only thing MS stole is the confidence of their hardcore audience. MS is the new Nintendo and I bet Nintendo will be more like Sony after their showing tomorrow. 360 is officially the kids console.
No, it's both. It still has the hardcore games and now, it has kids stuff, too. Exactly what its goal was. Believe it or not, MS knows what its doing.
GUS, NO, LOGIC IS NOT ALLOWED, NOT HERE, THIS IS.... FANBOY COUNTRY.
Regardless of the strategy MS has selected, the fact is they have shunned their original support base.......again. ala xbox I really couldnt care what they do, MS have disappointed me ever since windows 95. @bio Logic has nothing to do with it. The 360 was built up by regular gamers and MS have chosen to ignore them to some extent in favour of a better bottom line. If you are going to try and be the smart guy, at least have something intelligent to say, and not in caps.
...but how long can they survive off of COD, GOW, and HALO?
I didn't say I was happy about it, but I see where MS is going with this. It's a business...and Xbox is doing just fine and will continue to with just Halo, Gears, Fable, etc.
Kinect Kills Your Brain
LMFAOO!!! wateva makes u sleep at night dude,i mean do you guys remember tht Kinect football game.The most ridiculous BS ever. SONY came out swinging Uncharted3, R3, and BOOM the PSV price.
Disneyland on Kinect yay.......
Should..should I laugh? What am I supposed to do here? Someone help me.
I thought the kinect stuff sucked, too, but it's still going to sell like hotcakes, especially disneyland, star wars and dance central 2.
exactly! I didn't like the conference, from a hardcore gamer's perspective, but from business point of view, it was very good, kinect was the name of the show, kinect here, kinect there, disney, star wars, elmo. Its the stuff parents will buy for their kids.
So negative, the potencial was shown, especially with Ghost Recon future soldier, and what about all the talk that Kinect cannot scan objects? well now we know it can, Kinect is slowly showing it's promise, those that choose to ignore it well that's their choice, I for example didn't think UC3 looked anything special, the lighting I have seen years ago in splinter Cell, the water is no better than Bioshock, the enemy AL is weak, enemies just appear and never seem to hurt bullet proof Nathan and yet you proclaim it to be the best ever, and lets be fair the WOW factor belongs to Battelefield 3.
Potential (?) people are always talking about the potential of Kinect and no doubt there is. But it's about time to fulfil these promises and on that front I haven't seen anything impressive gameplaywise. Rail-Shooters? Please we're not living in the 90's!
@manuro and if we thought like that when the PS2 came out it would have never sold anywhere near what it has because the PS2 at launch was terrible, this is new tec give it a chance to get going then we can judge. @AznGaara Battelfield 3 looked amazing and that was streamed also so I think regardless of what we see in a stream it's still roughly how the game will look.
@tudors agreed! But someday they will have to deliver and by that I mean something more then nice but gimmicky additions like customizing weapons by using kinect. But we'll see only the future can tell! :)
Did you ever take into consideration that your watching a press conference? Through a stream for that matter so every game's graphics will look like crap. And if by "AL" you mean "AI" then Bioware said Mass Effect 3's normal difficulty is as hard as Mass Effect 2's veteran, and yet in the demo they all were pretty easy. Maybe... just maybe... developers want to actually go through their presentation without dying a couple times.
ummm NO its long over-due to be talkin about pontential,this thing is not a prototype
The you need glasses mate, Bioshock had good water but not that good. And UC blows any game away with graphics to date! You can disagree with me, but you know its true. I had good hopes for the MS conference, but i found it very boring. Another HALO? pffff RYSE was disapointing.... I wanted a new Alan Wake or an new IP!!!!
@tudors Thats very true battlefield did look amazing on a stream but its mainly due to how bright the scene was so its easier to see detail. Uncharted was mostly dark, so details don't come across all that well.
Move's sold about 8.6 million if I recall with like a minimal advertising budget Kinect's sold around 10million~ with about $500 million in advertising I'm not a big fan of periphials but PS Move has more core support and is a lot less laggier than the Kinect and I'd rather not spend a bunch of money on an over glorified PS Eye Toy
Bullshit, a couple of sequels, a terrible Fable, voice chat in a multi plat game, a half-hearted attempt to add more internet features, tv recording etc. Sony won last night with all their new games and new hardware. But the winning will, not as shockingly now 3DS is reuniting them with hard core games at least, if not the sales they were hoping for, will be Nintendo with the first of the next gen consoles.
Are you serious, Kinects shite. Sony nailed it without doubt a++. PSVita price 250/300 spot on. PSVita’s screen somply gorgous split screen 3D TV U3,R3, Sly & PSVita games awesome
The day on-rail shoters is the best E3 has to offer is the day I stopp watching the events....
2006 Gears of war 2007 Halo, Forza 2008 Fable, Gears of war 2009 halo gears 2010 Halo, Fable 2011 Gears of war, Forza 2012 halo fable,disney and sesame street LOLOLOLOL Microsft just Trolled everyone
Damn your statement is right on point. Well said! This article must be a joke.
No it didn't.
As a true gamer it was great to see titles that appealed to a wide variety of audiences, core and family.
dang i remember when all the ms fanboys were foaming out the mouth for kinect screaming how it would revolutionise gaming haaaaaaaaahaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaaa what a joke. personaly i dont care for move either being a sony fan they are gimmicks . cheap cash ins on the wiis success . sony and ms dropped the ball here folks because the wii has run out of steam and all those casuals that are done with the wii are certainly not gonna go get a move or kinect . why whuld they? most casuals i know barely even touch the dam thing . the wii sold the way it sold because it was the "IT" thing everyone wanted one and everyone had to have it but as soon as that whore off it just sat there in peoples livingrooms colecting dust . ms and sony are trying to replicate this but it didn't work for them. ps. stupid article kinect didn't steal anything but peoples time
Come on,Really ! There are people this brainwashed to seriously say that Kinect "stole" the E3 for it's competitors.
Wow, its going to be a great year for kinect owners. I cant wait for sports 2!!!! Controller free golf!!!! Finally!! Be nice when the ps3 kids finally head back to their forums, must be slow over there. Really, the drama... no one cares guys.. except its ruining any meaningful discussion here.
I own Kinect and I dug the stuff they showed(except Star Wars). *shrugs*
