Please Not Kinect Games, I Want Proper Core Games Like PGR5

anthraxCZ2795d ago (Edited 2795d ago )

i want proper core games too, but also some for kinect, because kinect has extreme potential

i hope we will see something from kingdoms, forza, haunt, rise of nightmares and steel batalion

and maybe: new halo, alan wake 2, pgr like you said would be awesome too

Stealth20k2795d ago (Edited 2795d ago )

absolutely no kinect games because kinect has no potential..............

alan wake 2=yay
lost oddessy 2=yay
kinect free exclusisive=win

@ wwm0nkey, then with a controller whats the point of kinect? arent you suppose to be the controller?lol

wwm0nkey2795d ago

But what if they announce a Move/wii mote like controller that they will include in most of their games :D

IRetrouk2795d ago

no alan wake 2, they are making new xmen game.

captain-obvious2795d ago (Edited 2795d ago )

i'll believe it when i'll see it
MS still claims that kinect is ((hard core))

kreate2795d ago

why do i have the feeling they're going to promote a few mediocre games and make it seem like a high budget core title...

gaffyh2795d ago

I'm pretty sure that we'll see:

Forza 4, Gears of War 3 again.
Fable 4, Halo remake announced.

And I don't think we'll see anything else, possibly a new CG trailer for Kingdoms, but I definitely do not expect gameplay.

Lost Odyssey 2 doesn't seem like it's ever going to happen. First game was awesome.

Moentjers2795d ago

it has been long time since I heard someone mentioning the 'huge potential' of kinect. wait and see or wait and wait some more ?

gamingdroid2795d ago (Edited 2795d ago )

Ahhh... I can't wait and I hope they show some real game play footage of those Kinect hardcore games.

Some more hardcore exclusive games would be nice as well, not that I care they are exclusive.

Microsoft kinda pisses me off with this new segregation of gaming communities.....MS please can you just focus your gaming events on ALL gamers and stop treating "core" gamers as second hand citizens.

On Topic:
Hopefully Kingdoms gets a proper unveiling and more 2011 titles are announced...I think they can leave gears 3 at home for this one i for one have seen enough, it looks amazing, im ready to play the game at this point

This!!! Segregating the people who got them where they are and labelling them as "core gamers" is nothing less than insulting. They shouldn't need to confirm they have a core gamer event planned, it should be a given.

Also announce some REAL games.. something new and fresh not just the same old same old sequels. However i'd admit i'd just settle for a halo 1 hd remake providing the gameplay was untouched and it contained mp.

Senden2795d ago

HatvestMoon I think you've got it backwards.. microsoft are usually the ones who claim to be the best out there and run their mouths off constantly.

NPD will almost certainly not effect ps3 games much and it certainly won't effect the ps3 the same way kinect has effected the xbox 360. Good luck with your xbox though, if you really believe microsoft will take care of your gaming needs (providing you enjoy proper games and not some ten minute casual bollocks) then all the power to you.

Rainstorm812795d ago (Edited 2795d ago )


Make fun of what? This is the best news i heard from MS all year....As motion gaming isnt my thing, i like regular "core" controller based games.

I hope you enjoy making fun of Sony, i own 0 stock in the company nor do i make any money off of them. I just own a PS3 just like i own a 360.....**crazy fanboys**...SMH

I guess i made fun of gears 3 by saying it looks amazing....hmmm

Edit @ Super Lupe and Harvest
I know you guys have a hard time accepting this but let me help.......Just because someone doesnt agree with every move these companies make it doesnt make them a fanboy of it's competitor.....I dont fight in Console not a Sony Soldier or a Microsoft Mercenary...Im a Gamer that speaks his mind on gaming....its so hilarious to watch people attack a company as if its hurts the consumer.

"MS please can you just focus your gaming events on ALL gamers and stop treating "core" gamers as second hand citizens." The crap you guys spew is just incredible.

MS has got there user base practically EVERY big playstation franchise that made Sony's success the last 2 gens, from DMC to freaking Tekken passing by Final Fantasy. I mean do you realise the number of people who havent bought a PS3 for the simple reason that MS have done everything possible the last 5 years for their "core" base ?

Its a good thing that they realise that they have a casual and core crowd. Nintendo didnt take that into account and look where that got them too.

And anyways its not like Sony can talk about having a casual and core audience since Move aint moving $hit at retail.

SuperLupe2795d ago (Edited 2795d ago )

double post.

HeavenlySnipes2795d ago

me lol. I hope he was joking

Finally, some competition? :)

sjaakiejj2795d ago

I'm guessing that these two situations may occur:

1. It features Forza 4, Gears of War 3 and perhaps a new Fable game
2. It's filled with Kinect games, and Microsoft confirms it now considers that to be the core audience.

We'll see what happens.

Senden2795d ago

Sad but true.. core games will include same old sequel announcements, maybe a new trailer for that new IP they're doing and then they'll try ramming kinect titles down our throats.

Steel Batallion will be on rails and you point your hands where you want to shoot with a few little other movements you can do like dodge and maybe even call out voice commands.. that's a "core gaming" kinect title in microsoft's eyes.

DiRtY2795d ago

Looking forward to

Killzone THREE
Uncharted THREE
Infamous TWO
Motorstorm THREE

--> Sequels are something everyone in the industry does. I have no problem with it as long as the quality is right like Halo, Gears, forza or uncharted.

On topic:
I am looking forward to these titles already:

- Gears of War 3
- Ghost Recon
- Rise of Nightmares
- Kingdom
- Project Draco
- LA Noire
- Bulletstorm

As a non-fanboy I can look forward to multiplat titles as well! Seems like some guys on N4G forgot about it.

strickers2795d ago

Those PS3 titles you listed are all new this gen except KZ.
The thing is Sony make new IP every gen rather than milking the old ones and are still introducing new IP.Ninty are using 20 year old IP and any new IP from MS are usually 3rd party timed ones.

Pedobear Rocks2795d ago

Aaron Greenberg describes ANY MS event as 'hardcore' if they are serving ribs. Lots and lots of ribs. Doesn't even matter if there are games. Just ribs.

TheLeprachaun2795d ago

Mate don't knock ribs. The last microsoft press event I was at, we got tons of sandwiches, ribs and cake. :D

Although at gamescom, Sony gave us burgers and beer, which is way better.
