NowGamer: Kudo and co. cooking up next-gen games tech?
Change the world again? If that listing is a troll 10/10!
Enjoy the aftermath of this Christmas season... XBox is already crushing everything else World Wide, because the USA is not the world... But none the less, the next 7 weeks will leave the PS3 "someday we will be second place!" fanboys quivering and hiding in the corner again crying "But this is supposed to be the year that we caught up!" with all their dreams of second place crushed and destroyed... Until next march when SDF will triumphantly announce, "2012 is the year of the PS3" and promptly copy pasta a list of exclusives that most won't care about.
^^^^^ lol Some people just don't know the truth if it smacked them in the face...Enjoy lala land Corn...
Not to get into the whole sales thing...but the xbox isnt crushing anything world wide, pretty sure ps3 has been outselling it world wide ever since it came out except for 1 year. Your whole "someday we will be second place!" thing is stupid as I see most fanboys of a certain console beating their chests already for being in second and never achieved first place and most likely won't this gen as I doubt MS will give it much 1st party support when the nextbox launches since they have like 4 studios. Anyways, it'd be nice if they could some how get more mature (not gonna say hardcore) games out...because who the hell would want to play kinectimals 2...
Do you work for Microsoft? If not I think it's pretty sad that a gamer has to come back and quote some so far non existent figures to defend Kinect. As a gamer, I couldn't care less about sales/profit figures.. it's a nice bonus which I'm happy about when deserved but ultimately there is only one lot of figures I care for and that's the amount of quality games released. Also Kinect didn't "change the world" the wii technically did by bringing gaming to a completely different and ever elusive audience, Microsoft just leeched off of that's success and bettered it slightly. Fanboys can disagree with that as much as they want but the Kinect lineup looks extremely similar to the wiis. Not to mention out of the 50-60 friends on my XBL list, 30ish family members of various ages and a lot of friends and acquaintances, I don't know a single person who owns kinect nor has ever even mentioned it.. that's hardly "changing the world". Now I am from the UK so maybe it's different in North America but the UK is the "world" after all.
Flash, If Microsoft just "leeched" off of the Wii's success then what does that say for the device that actually looks like Wiimote and designed to do the exact same thing just more precise? The Kinect lineup looks like the Wii's? What does the Moves lineup look like? Corn is right.
nice piece of hardware that could benefit users with apps
To change the world "again"... Don't you have to have changed it once already?
I'm still waiting to scan my skateboard into a game using Kinect and play with 4 players like MS promised.
If the next xbox was to come out in 2012, microsoft should include a improved version of kinect with it
If by change the world they mean, "change the world...eventually some time in the future but not today" as it is with Kinect now, then I guess they've changed the world again, already.
Good luck with all of that lag and needing to move furniture.
I bought kinect day 1 and loved it, there was no noticable lag and the games I bought worked well. I bought dance central, kinect sports and your shape. But after about 2 months it became boring just like my wii did. I bought into all that game changing crap before but I wont do again unless they bring out a game that truly uses kinects capabiltys which are alot better than most n4g trolls will tell you it is. Kinect was never going to succeed in the trol ridden hardcore gaming community for the simple fact that microsoft makes it. If kinect was sony branded, sony fans would be lapping it up as the second coming.
" If kinect was sony branded, sony fans would be lapping it up as the second coming." I really don't think that's true. There'll always be trolls, but if Kinect were awesome, practical and had great games, people wouldn't give it such a hard time. First, you clearly explain why you don't like Kinect, that you won't buy into that "crap" again; then you say the reason it hasn't succeeded is because of trolls who don't like MS. So you can dislike it because it legitimately sucks, but when others dislike it, it can only be because they are trolls that don't give MS a fair chance?
you mis understood my friend, I said i liked kinect but got bored with it. I did beleive it was going to be a game changer but I now know that isn't the case. As for the troll commments I was refering to to pre kinect launch when quite frankly the things what were being said by the sony brigade were pathetic to say the least. I will not be buying a kinect again untill there is a substantial game worth getting for it, but if that became the case I would happily buy one again.
Maybe they were all trolls, or maybe they just saw what you had to buy it to see. I'm just saying, I think there are too many legitimate gripes about Kinect to just chock all the negative feedback up to trolling.
If Wii didn't change da world how could kinect.?
