GS News - Xbox One offline update removed, Kinect cannot see through clothes
Microsoft have pulled the option for users to update their console offline citing necessary customer service support, the Internet is told that the Kinect can’t see through pants and a Ninja Theory cofounder had some pretty strong words about the Xbox One.

If Jess McDonell and Jane Douglas did these vids together I'd probably do a handstand. That being said, I really wish the console makers did stuff to promote faster internet in America. As a Canadian with Bell, mine just plain sucks and although I'd love a fully-digital gaming future, the infrastructure here and in the USA really needs some work to be able to support it.
i thought i wouldn't mind the always online stuff if it did happen, but my internet has been goin out here and there for couple minutes at a time. it doesn't happen TOO often, but it does still happen, and the idea of not being able to play my console while Comcast screwed up just pisses me off. i at least wanna play my SP games! oh well i got a ps4 anyway so i don't think i'll have that issue, on the other hand it seems that MS has no issues changing their policies at a whim..sketch
Not for nothing, I used an ethernet connection to download the update...
500mb and it downloaded in 6 minutes. I mean, that was amazing.
From the sound of it microsoft needs all the programmers they can get to keep their system from breaking
hahaha omg people actually thought it could see through clothes well they could do that and it would give you a nice slice of cancer at the same time then
It's like having a free NSA agent and an airport scanner in you homeroom. I can't see anything going wrong.
We were promised x-ray glassed so long ago that I think we've given up and are looking for that feature else where
I'm, not quite sure how people got that worked up over the kinect video there. Think that was mostly people's imaginations running wild.
Ive said this before and Ill say it again..a top down model for Making games DOES NOT WORK Corporate people dont know their ass from their elbow when it comes to creativity and how it applys to games. Why is it that it took Kenji Inafune to make a kickstarter before anyone understood that people want to play a good Mega man game and not a COD style Resident evil game? Not only that but look at the industry what are the biggest games? the Modern war franchises like Cod and Battlefield. Those games to me hurt the industry way more than they ever helped anything because it sucked the creativity out of the industry and left it with repetitive crap. To me those are not true video games. Those are just cash cows being milked until the next thing comes along.Video games are supposed to not just be about interactivity but skill and critical thinking. take those elements away and all you have is eye candy for the sheep to enjoy...o wait...
(The Kinect 2.0 is watching you!)
@AuronAXE well, it's the same everywhere else. Japan is the only exception.
@Merseyak Its a valid concern. Sony erroneously made a camcorder that could do just that in 1998. This has since been corrected.
@Max_160 Turn on the light (and pull your pants up ;)
@daikkenaurora12 so what?
@tomservo51 In case you're naked Kinect will show you wearing clothes...
@Pyrosa Wait, you mean you're supposed to wear pants OUTDOORS too?
@Pyrosa I like pants.
@Pyrosa 'Glances around......raises hand'
@Berkut4796 Well there is a lot of paranoia about government spying on people, so it's no wonder people flipped out over nothing.
@MooncalfReviews Creepy. Veeerrry creepy.
@tommyhappy I also love Edmond Tran :P
@IanNottinghamX those games COD and BF4...as long as they sell, they will always make them..supply and demand. its the nature of the beast. as long as there is demand, there will always be supply...its unavoidable..
@atif_ahmed33 they run at HD, 60fps
@norabbitnofun OMG! that was hilarious :)
@ricku1967yes. But demand can be artificially boosted through hype and multi million PR campaigns. Who's to say that could not be done to do better, more original games?
Face it, it's just less risky, and less work for them to deliver reashed reruns of hold stuff, than it is to invest the money and the work in a new IP. Demand can be manipulated.
@TigusVidiks well yes you have a point, but the ONLY way for demand to be manipulated is if the games were any good to begin with...both BF and COD were really good games in the beginning and sold millions. so the developer goes off that initial demand and plays off of it...is that the developers fault? or the consumers fault? if there were no demand for these games to begin with, these series would have ended a long time ago. now, since the demand for these games were there in the beginning, its up to the developer to keep these series fresh and innovative...if they arent and they still sell millions of copies, well thats the consumers fault and makes the developer think "well if it is still selling millions, why change anything"...right or wrong?
