Thing is, there are few alternatives.

If PS4 is as bad as PS3 was, with crap online, crap controller, broken multiplats, no QA, some people might decide "hey I don't like Kinect but the 720 is the only competent console."

This gen pretty much nothing was worth having but 360 and/or a PC.

PS3 wasn't worth owning.

Wii had limited appeal and alot of fraudulent marketing about making kids exercise.

For next gen

WiiU we already know isn't worth owning.

720 if it focus on Kinect won't be worth owning.

PS4 if it has tablet controller and lock used games, plus they have a track record of being incompetent, won't be worth owning.

All we will have left is PC gaming.

I have no worries at all ... kinect was never a focus for the xbox 360 and didn't take any core game away

Also kinect 2 looks interesting if you know they can get past having to own a projector ... then kinect 2 would be a worth while purchase next gen

Says the guy who buys into avatars, iam a xbox live early adopter 2002 and i think it's dumb as sh!t im a guy and my character on my xbox live dashboard is a female because i havent even took the time to customize it and i could really ever give a sh!t about doing that.

It's ashame you are forced to have some dorky ass character to represent you on xbox live.

What happened to a simple gamer pic that's a hell of alot cooler.

i think the artstyle seriously blows on the human xbox live dashboard characters.

umm ooookkkk ..... says the guy with a female avatar who is really a guy:?... and thats a stock photo ... the minecraft hat and i think t shirt is given to you for playing minecraft ... not a single ms point spent ... although i wouldn't mind a hat that don't sit straight on my head and maybe a pet that pops up next to me:P

ain't nothing wrong with avatars and spending MS points to enjoy seeing it on your dashboard

#108 Posted by Strakha (1781 posts) -

No if the platform isn't good value for money and provide me with the gaming experience I want I simply won't buy it. Most of my favorite games are multiplat anyway. I'm guessing this built-in Kinect they are using won't cost them anywhere near $150 to ad to the machine but if the consoles launches at $150 more than the competition than obviously will buy the less expensive console. I don't think it's likely it will cost more than the competition though because I rekon Kinect doesn't cost them anywhere near it's retail price for them to make. They are probably making a nce profit off the stand alone while consoles at launch are often sold at a loss.

i just mashed buttons picked anything just so i could go ahead and play online lol reason my xbox live dash character is a black chick lmao.

I want to get in the game and kick some ass i dont want to sit there for 30 minutes scrolling through a list of items to make a character try to resemble myself.

Wasn't hyping but rather excited about the possibilities of SB:HA being dev'ed by Fromsoft, using traditional control along with "Some" Kinect funtionality :D I mean, anyone who played the original SB amd loved it would be crazy not to be excited about that.

That said, if you remember me being excited for SB:HA, then you must also remember that after playing the demo, I lost faith in Kinect being useful for core games and called Kinect nothing but beta testing for Kinect 2. :P

I don't think Kinect could be standard because most of the current genres wouldn't work with that type of Motion control since there isn't any buttons.

Well that's kind of a stupid statement.

I own a 360 and I worry about Kinect being the primary focus of Microslut.

[QUOTE="ZombieKiller7"]

With Kinect crippling the Xbox360 core gaming focus, are you worried that MS will do the same thing next gen?

I've been thinking

If 720 has Kinect 2.0 built in then we will be forced to buy Kinect, if for example the hardware cost $400 then we will pay $150 for Kinect hardware that alot of us don't want and won't use.

Secondly if the GUI uses kinect, what about people who use their Xbox in a smaller room, that don't have room to be waving their arms around to control the interface.

While I understand the business reasons, Kinect still irritates.

Why can't any company just focus on providing value and service to core gamers? Everybody's busy inventing tablet controllers and all kind of stupid schit, nobody's focused on just having a normal controller and making great games.

I'm sorry are those games not playable on the 360? :|

You'd be able to play most of those along with a great deal of exclusives (and even more upcoming exclusives) on the PS3. The PC completely triumph that. Not only does the PC feature superior versions of multiplats, but it's also giving the Xbox 360 the middle finger while pis*ing on it in terms of exclusives.

IMO the Xbox 360 is the least attractive platform out of the bunch, but on the same time it still does offer plenty of games.. So yeah.. I am, however, curious about nex gen. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if MS will continue like they have in the last couple of years.

#135 Posted by Shewgenja (8355 posts) -

I like how in threads like this, Kinect won't be a big focus next-gen for the XBox, but in sales threads, Kinect is like an atom bomb that got dropped into the Playstation 3 Death Star.

Which way is it?

#136 Posted by Bigboi500 (29215 posts) -

No because lemmings want Halo, Forza and Gears with Kinect.

#137 Posted by CRUSHER88 (1150 posts) -
Not worried. Even if they put all their first party into kinect, there would still be solid multiplats to play. I mean looking at my 360 library now and I only own like two exclusives from a pile of 30+ games.

[QUOTE="StormyJoe"]

Who says no one will use it? I don't play Kinect games on my 360, but I have used Kinect for "Kinect enhanced" games. Issuing commands in ME3 with Kinect is nice, speaking the shouts in Skyrim is even better. I wouldn't buy a Kinect for that (I got mine off a buddy), but I would use that functionality if it were built in.

StormyJoe

Yeah cuz yelling "SQUAD GO LEFT" at your TV is easier than pressing d-pad.

Ahh... someone who has never used it before. It's more like this: "Liara, Warp", and Liara (providing she is in your squad at the time), fires a Warp Biotic blast at the target you have in your crosshairs. That's a lot more fluid than: stopping game play, brigingin up the radial menu, scrolling over to Liara, and clicking on the "Warp" biotic icon; wouldn't you say?

As for Skyrim, yelling FUS RU DAH at your TV to have your character use Unrelenting Force is hella fun.

I laugh at the "pressing the d-pad is easier" retort. Using Kinect features in ME3 wasn't about ease for me, it was just plain fun. God forbid I want that from video games.
#139 Posted by ZombieKiller7 (6248 posts) -

Well the Xbox360 is just an extension of the Windows platform.

Someday people will be able to buy games, and play them across across their desktop, laptop, console, tablet and phone.

As long as they subscribe to Live.

That's pretty much the Microsoft plan.

Steam isn't in that plan so they'll prolly be gutted and move to Linux.

#140 Posted by -CC- (1889 posts) -

Im only getting one console so if its kinectbox 720 then it will be the PS4 unless they screw that up also. Wii U is already out. I really hope either PS4 or 720 is a "hardcore" type console.

#142 Posted by gpuking (2720 posts) -
They really should be, supporting something as idiotic as Kinect would only become your own undoing, hence the lack of core games and weak sauce spec compared to Orbis.

Unfortunately, Kinect should not be a $100 microphone. They could've done it with the regular headset (for all platforms).

Aren't you worried I'll PK ( player kill ) your ass and when you restart your game your character's level will be halved. :shock:

What's so bad about Kinect that gets all you Sony fanboys in a tither?

Are you jealous that MS have managed to carve out a business for themselves by supporting both core and casual gamers?

Are you jealous because the PS Move was a complete joke?

Are you jealous because Sony no longer know how to make a successful product?

#149 Posted by Malta_1980 (11173 posts) -

I just hope MS will balance in terms of focus when it comes to exclusives... One must keep in mind gamers of all ages have different tastes so some might prefer Kinect type of games and others wont... Its never easy to please everyone !!
