Joystiq: Home Shopping Network pitches the Kinect

James Ransom-Wiley on Oct 25th 2010 1:40PM

"Now, it you're wondering what in the world is Xbox 360 Kinect, we're giving you an idea of what it is: Gaming is a big part of it, but there's even more! Because there's a feature called 'Xbox Live Entertainment' that's going to allow you to not only play your favorite games, but you will be able to now go ahead and download movies; you can download music; you're going to be able to access your Facebook and your Twitter; and there's a lot more to this.

"The interesting thing about Xbox 360 is that you get rid of con-trollers -- there's no controllers!

Love the bit where the guy jumps back in to help her @ 02:55.

GreenRingOfLife2919d ago (Edited 2919d ago )

omg did anyone else see at the bottom of the screen how fast they were selling? wow!!!

TroyAndAbed2919d ago (Edited 2919d ago )

Did you know that...

Pokemon cards sell faster on HSN?

Edit: GreenRingOfLife - You're probably my favorite troll...

Lmao ''Now two People will Appear on the Raft''!!!!

hours of laughter.

asyouburn2919d ago

those numbers arent real, they're there to hook the tards into thinking its a fast seller. kinda like those commercials that say if you call in the next 5 min, you get a deal, and then you realise the commercial has been running for three years

sack_boi2919d ago

LOL N4G is so mad about Kinect in general it's funny.

I see people raging on any Kinect related article

Bigpappy2919d ago

She does a great job of explaining and selling kinect.

Cenobia2919d ago

omfg @ the price. I didn't know they ripped people off that much.

They were just selling a similar product for cats:

TheBlackSmoke2919d ago

Man that fake enjoyment is so cringeworthy, its worse that those mario kart adverts where they nudge eachother.

KratosGod32919d ago

Green Ring Of Troll!!! FTW!!!

And two people should appear in the game... should... but what this is pre-alpha and the bugs wi... wait this is reatil.

Yeah it;s selling quickly... but to gamers? Sure it help fuel your fanboyism and all but unless you hold shares in Microsoft this is bad new or you because you'll wake up one friday and everyone is making casual games.

pxpxp2919d ago

If this is not hardcore, i dont know what is /s

jahcure2919d ago

i noticed that the avatar didn't even come back in. Maybe they didn't understand how to operate the preset scripts? This is a sad day. it will sell though...but i am holding out until they show me something that is just completely broken.

Bigpappy2919d ago (Edited 2919d ago )

He was trying to joint the game when it was almost finished.

But did you see how fast they sold out?

ComboBreaker2919d ago (Edited 2919d ago )

But that sold-out- fast-ness does nothing to fix the glitches and also does nothing to increase my enjoy-ty-ness of Kinect.

warzonegamer2919d ago

lmfaooo i feel bad for people that dont know anything about this lagkinect smh

Killed4Less2918d ago

I tried it at Macys too. Why is that dude in the video like 2 feet from the TV? They made us back up 4 feet when trying it. Worked better than what you have there.

Wow all this new technology. I am learning so much!!! /s

Wow home shopping makes this look so terrible. these idiots are clueless. btw, did the guy even reapear after he jumped back in at 2:55? Still looked like only one person in the raft.

"With Xbox Live you are NOW going to be able to DOWNLOAD your favorite movies and music."

hardcorez2919d ago

AHAHAHA! footage doesn't lie.

Bigpappy2919d ago

Can you do that with the Move?

warzonegamer2919d ago

lmfaooooo thats what i was saying to my self she had a hard time trying so say good things about it and was clueless

panasonic232919d ago

Kinect is selling out fast.

Nineball21122919d ago

"Damn MS ain't playing"

It's certainly not playing the games I want to play... especially with Kinect.

Killed4Less2918d ago

And neither is Move. So looks like motion controls are a bust.

ssj2gohan832919d ago

This is what I call, acts of desperation on MS part. Now I don't have anything against MS. Other than there Fanboy Spawn that plagues the interwebs and the real world.

Raendom2919d ago (Edited 2919d ago )

$225,000 just like that. Wow.

Edit: just realised this is the bundle... $644,925. O_O

dkblackhawk502919d ago

Its a selling like ze hot cakes!

SilverSlug2919d ago

they spent 500,000,000 on advertising. So its still negative amount of cash.

sack_boi2919d ago (Edited 2919d ago )

You do realize that the $500M ads will help sell X360s and XBL as well and not just Kinect right?

XBL alone brings over a billion every year.

van-essa2919d ago (Edited 2919d ago )

You need a X360 to use Kinect so any ad money spent on Kinect automatically helps the X360.
More X360s means more XBL users, which equates to even more money...

Kinect, X360Slim and XBL are pure profit for Micrososft's gaming division, so I'm pretty sure they'll recover the $500M they spent in no time.

Blaine2919d ago

lol, no.

Ever hear of the term "R&D"? Development, production, marketing, etc? 360Slim and Kinect are FAR from pure profit.

Even Live has costs associated with it. If MS is spending 500mil$ on advertising, they're definitely not going to recoup that on hardware sales. They're betting on software and Live... Let's hope for their sakes people buy tons of games once they got the hardware.
