    A) BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
    B) See A.
    C) There are Wii-to-Xbox ports. See No More Heroes: Paradise. And I'm intolerant to the fact it's not released in the US or not region free.
    D) You have absolutely no good library for "core" gamers, and we're not gonna buy one until they do.
    E) I don't think even the "core" community will buy a $150 hunk of junk for some fancy dashboard controls and a single kart racer game.
    F) See B.

    "They'll love the navigating round their 360 via hand gestures."

    You have to wonder what the fuck they're thinking sometimes.

    "They'll love the navigating round their 360 via hand gestures. They'll love that they can jump into a game like Joy Ride, which should really appeal to the hardcore community.

    Wut? So a 'hardcore' player of some random FPS will be able to jump into some possibly lame racing-related game and love it?
    Hand gestures....is be loved? Wouldn't it be easier to press Triangle to open a menu, then press Circle to cancel?

    "We're very committed to that hardcore community - it defined us," he went on. "We'll keep bringing the Fable IIIs and the Halo: Reaches and the Gears of Wars to that community.

    Better not include holding an invisible gun and trying to shoot with your hands...and it'll probably be like this :
    'tap' the spot you want to shoot at, no looking around, just straightforward on-rails 'shooting'. No aim needed, just move your hands!

    Even the Wii seems more 'revolutionary'.
    Hands free gaming, meh. It's just not game enough. What will you do when you get mad? Controllers are necessary for rage! Throw that Genesis controller at the floor!! Smash your PS2 controller!!!

    I don't have a 360 nor plans to buy but I think it's funny that a game named "Joy Ride" is hardcore

    Grrr... I hate when people use the word 'Core'.

    Either it's a good game, or it's a bad game. Sure, there's different genres, but why should they separate it like black and blue? Not even Microsoft gets it. [​IMG]
    Using the 'Core' label isn't going to sway anybody with an ounce of sense in them.

    ONTOPIQUE: Oh, wait, that was on topic. Dang, first try!

    Looks like the most retarded piece of shit ever. Honestly, anyone who thinks this will go places is as dumb as the asshats at Microshit who decided to make it. There are lag problems, there are few hardcore games being developed for it and even then they will probably suck monkey testicles. Time to quit while you are ahead M$, clearly you are going to try and copy Nintendo but fail in the process, you are 4 years too late on this niche market.

    While most of that is true, devs reported the lag in Kinect can be eliminated with proper development. Meaning shitty games will lag but if anyone puts enough time into a game there can be no lag, or at least lag so minor you won't notice.

    And Microsoft still is behind a console with good games, no need to troll them for a terrible idea.

    Also, it's "Microsoft" and "MS", not "Microshit" and "M$". People who say "M$" are baboons.

    Everyone criticized Nintendo for the Wii controller and early developer adoptions were terrible from a development perspective, it will be the same thing for the 360 with Kinect. I wouldn't waste my money on a Wii imitation for my 360, especially since initial release games are no more shovelware and mini game collection titles then what the Wii had at launch. Microsoft thinks this will draw Wii owners away but it won't, with a higher price point combining the peripheral with the console, even at a base price you are paying double what the Wii and Wii Sports package will cost you for almost the exact same thing. Why pay almost the same price for an add on when a whole new console is like 30 dollars more and actually has games for it now that are good and worth playing.

    Well that's what every company is trying to do: go after the casual crowd. It made Nintendo rich as all hell. Can't blame a company for trying to steal a demographic, but you certainly can blame them for making a bad product.

    There's no point really trolling the Kinect since everyone thinks it's a terrible idea. Casual gamers, hardcore gamers, even Xbox fans and frequent users like myself. Simply put there is probably not a single massive redeeming quality to it. From the core idea to the price tag it's just rubbish.
