Microsoft is aiming Kinect at the casual, non-gaming crowd -- a potentially grievous error.
GGG: "It's official: Kinect is for kids and housewives. As if we needed any further proof that Kinect isn't for gamers, Microsoft has elected to showcase the product on Oprah and The Ellen DeGeneres Show — neither of which is especially renowned for its hard-hitting games coverage.
It would seem Microsoft is aiming Kinect squarely at mums and their precocious offspring — as opposed to the mature gaming fraternity that helped build its console business. Perhaps this non-gamer gamble will pay off for Microsoft, but we don't remain very hopeful - and neither do most retailers."
