Xbox is moving to a broader audience, says UK boss
what about core games?
Wizziokid: What about core games? MS employee: What the hell are core games? Wizziokid: Errm you know, games for the core gamer? MS employee: Oh yeaaahhhh i remember those people, we don't really care about them anymore.
Although I dont agree with you this made me laugh. Sooo heres a bubble.
They don't care about the core audience They never have since Kinect came out, I'm surprised people still have faith in them to be honest. E3 won't reveal that much and I think if that happens people really start to stop being fanbois and buy a PS3 to experience some amazing games this year. You can have a PS3 with Sonys great games this year and still buy Gears 3 for your 360
You'll have to depend on multiplat devs for core from now on it seems.
And we have the best looking version of the best looking game. Multiplat developers bring it on;P
Yeah thats what i was thinking .... MS promises to 'really deliver on Kinect ...to the Wii market' in 2011
the title made me giggle.
lol its already 4 months in.... how much longer to wait.... i bought it for my sister and she doesnt even play with it anymore... i got on dance central but it get too boring and tiring.... need to implement it in games that already exist... halo reach anyone.... until then dont make promises you cant keep M$
They already did. And with the already announced core games things will only get even better
Damn what did they spike the koolaid with you drank? Come on man, let's get serious and completely honest here. MS is focusing mostly on Kinect now and not their core fanbase. They have 2 exclusives coming out in all of 2011 for their core userbase. TWO! Now maybe they will surprise us with something at E3 but I find that highly unlikely considering nearly everything gets leaked by the media these days. Can anyone remember the last time there was a surprise announcement at E3 that wasn't already rumored weeks or months before hand? The last announcement from MS that caught me completely off guard was Pter Moore rolling up his shirt sleeve to display a GTA4 tattoo. I am not holding out hope E3 2011 will have one of those "oh shit" moments.
Portal on Ps3 was a surprise. but i know and agree with what you're saying.
The point you guys don't understand is that games that use Kinect can be for the Core audience as well. Games like Haunt, Project Draco, Rise of Nightmares, codename D, Steel Battalion are hardcore games using Kinect. Go to YouTube and check the trailers for yourselves. . And btw none of these games were rumored before. Final Fantasy XIII was not rumored, wasn't it? Kingdoms was not rumored either.
no what you dont understand is that those games are basically just here-say as of now. You can talk the talk, but until they walk the walk, its only gonna be speculation.
All talk, no delivery.
what about the other games ? its like microsoft forget its hard core players and now only cares about kinect i think the only good game to come out for hard core players is Gears and after that only kinet games for the rest of the year
I hope that E3 isnt just all kinect all the time for xbox... wouldnt be good.
agreed. but you know it will be, it already was last year and Kinect wasnt even out yet.
disagree? i stated a fact...lol
Like I give a damn. As if we give a damn. Gosh, this entire gen has turned into one huge Casual skirt chasing affair. The only company that's been relatively stable on the Core games front is Sony.
that is 100 percent true and no one should disagree with you sony has and is releasing games for the hard core using normal controller and is releasing move games but you never see sony or hearing sony say we are only fousing on the move like look at sonys line up true games uncharted 3 infamous 2 last last guardian and much more. and everyone wait for E3 even more hardcore titles
@ clizz and valve and steam and PC in general there is alot of great PC titles on steam but they dont get their hype not in N4G at least i mean just look at shogun 2 game just came out and it looks hot as shit
Believe it or not, N4G is not a good representation of the gaming community. Considering Kinect has sold over 10 million units and there's already confirmation for core titles that will use Kinect such as Steel Battalion, Panzer Dragon (Project Draco), Gears of War, Call of Duty, Forza Motorsport 4, etc., I'm not sure how you can generalize everyone's opinion as "We don't give a damn." Personally, I'm very interested in how controller/kinect hybrid games will work.
Alright Arnon, I respect your opinion. What i mean is that I don't want Kinect-Only games to be the focus, because more likely than not, they aren't going to be anything I'm interested in. Games like Forza 4 that HAVE Kinect Implementation but are not EXCLUSIVE to Kinect are A-OK in my books. It's when MS talks about delivering on Kinect and then shows off games like Sesame Street and Gunstringer that I grow frustrated.
Wow really cod with kinect?? Does it look like this?? Edit:OMG i can't stop laughing quick someone call the ambulance i think i'm dying of laughter xDDDDDDD rotflmfao.
Call of duty hasn't even been announced yet, let alone confirmation of kinect integration. Pretty sure cliffy b said no kinect for gears as well. I love my 360 but stop making crap up!
I'm not making crap up. I had a Microsoft rep come into my GameStop and tell me personally that Gears of War 3 and Call of Duty would integrate Kinect. Whether or not his word is valid is another story, but that's what I was told. @Dart No, it'll finally allow shooters to be that much closer to what PC titles have been doing for a long time, such as leaning.
leaning is done with a keyboard. usually q or e.
It's also done with motion detection. Ever heard of the TrackIR, a camera used for PC gaming?
I don't even have Kinect so this isn't news for me. I want core games.
Microsoft doesn't give a shit. They will heavily promote and sell a ton of Modern Warfare 3 or whatever the next COD is on their box. That to them is pleasing the core gamer. At least that's according to an episode of the bonus round on Gametrailers.
ms could get burned big time on this kinect,sales were good as of the multi millions pumped into advertising same happened to the wi.but even ninty has droped it in favour of the 3ds.
The thing is while the hardware sells amazingly, the same cannot be said for the software. It is true with Wii third party games would sell more if they were games we cared about, however the amount of shovelware saturates the market. MS will soon realise that Kinect may be a financial success but it won't be so much on the software because casuals don't care about games.
1/4th of the year is already gone, and they're still making empty promises
Kinect Needs more thoughts from developers ... it is a nice Tech Anyway :)
I love my Xbox, but now is as good a time as any to pick up a PS3.
Truth of the matter is... when I have older family members who never play games and are all of a sudden inquiring about buying Kinect (which is happening), it spells doom for Xbox gamers. Depending on how much profit they really make, the stink of the Wii can no doubt attach itself to the Xbox brand. In the end it's all about $$$. Hopefully, I am completely wrong and they show otherwise @ E3.
XB720 incoming soon... Look at Kinect games. Not much difference. Look at the recent sales stats. Kinect games does not sell so well. Means simply that there will be millions of Kinect devices and nowhere to go except Dance Party 7 or Jumping Jack Fitness 12.
so am i gathering that the much of the n4g community does not care for Kinect, that its existence reinforces their negative view of the 360 in general, and that the vitriol behind the negativity (which goes beyond simply ignoring the product as a consumer) stems from tiny penises and/or sandy vaginas. :)
^^sandy vagina^^ lol, haven't heard that in a while.
Is the last protector of 360 Core games. Lets hope Gears 3 ain't the last core game left. Kinect has invaded and taken over Microsoft like a virus. Unfortunately, Core gaming may never be the same on that console. @BLAKHOODe - God Bless ya. Glad I have them all, you will be welcomed to the darkside. @retrongames79 - I'll call it now, everyone needs to be ready for Kinect2 to come out with the Xbox 720. MS may claim the original Kinect was not "powerful" enough to pair with the new console, and make everyone buy another one.
Promise and promises and promises and BLA BLA BLA, i need my money back!
Ahh the weekly kinect "were really going to deliver" article.
WELL, THERE'S A SHOCKER
Honestly I think lack of core means they are going to release the xbox 720 soon
pretty sure they said that last e3.
Having a few decent games come out at the end of the year does not make up for the rest of the year. If MS was going to delivery then I would expect a game or two should have released this year already.
there's just something about sitting there controlling a character through a control...... oh yeah, I'm lazy and a slob. Screw the Wii-mote, the Move, the Kinect. I play games so I can get a good story and some excitement out of the games, not to work up a sweat and wave the "magic wand" around like a total freak. If I wanted exercise, I'd be at the freaking gym!!!!!
People's overeagerness can annoy me sometimes. Yes they are talking a lot about Kinect, but we don't know what's going on for 360 right now as far as exclusives for later this year and next year. It took a lot of R & D to launch what is basically a new console in Kinect, so they pulled companies off XBox 360 games to produce for Kinect's launch. Now that it's such a success other outside developers are going to want to develop for the Kinect leaving Microsoft Game Studios free to make more "Core" titles. People always assume Microsoft lacks studio's but what they essentially do is buy a studio and then if it's not profitable they close it down, but retain the more talented developers for the internal Microsoft Game Studios so they can make games for the MS consoles. I know a lot of people don't understand this, but this is a brilliant piece of strategy on MS part. If they got a heads up on what was being released third party wise, they picked a perfect time in all reality to not have a stellar 1st party year. I mean look at all the amazing games coming this year. I actually think Sony will regret releasing so many 1st party titles because a large number of them will see less then great sales due to the 3rd party games like Mass Effect 3, BulletStorm, Dragon Age 2, Skyrim, Batman A.C. ect.... So I think were in for a heck of a Microsoft show this E3, lots of cool Kinect stuff and I'm guessing a few nice surprises for "Core" fans. Wouldn't hurt to hear about a lineup next year that might include. Kingdoms Project Gotham Racing 5 Alan Wake 2 Metro 2034 Left 4 Dead 3 Banjo or Perfect Dark game Too Human 2 Halo Wars 2 or Halo 4 It could be a great year next year, we'll have to wait to E3 to find out, but I suspect Microsoft has gotten the message that they will need a better exclusive lineup next year.
assuming you're talking about exclusives metro2033 and left 4 dead are not ms ip and could end up on ps3
Maybe in the same way a MGS5 game would end up on the 360? I kind of doubt it to be honest. Why put sequels out on another console? It wouldn't make much sense, with Valve so busy with other projects I doubt they would release L4D on PS3, also people assume Valve and MS have issues which isn't the case, Gabe seems like a fair guy who wouldn't screw over MS. So as I said, those games probably stick to the 360.
no I mean the developers of metro were saying that instead of porting metro2033 to ps3 they would probably develop the next one with ps3 in mind if they went multiplatform (it's already mutiplat, both developers are pc devs and the pc versions are better)
@ playstation fanboys. you people act as if there are no games to play on the x box 360, well it's time to wake up and realize that there are games to play on both systems if you would just open your eyes and stop being fanboys on both sides of this stupid fanboy war you would actualy see that. Damn fanboys make the real gamers look bad.
Well it's almost April and there's been what, 1 new game released since launch. In fact I what MS Kinect game has released this year?
