Carth: oren0: Klivian: broktune: All the hardcore said the Wii would bomb, it didn't.  All the harcore said the 360 would bomb, it didn't.  The hardcore said the Kinect would bomb, it didn't.

I'mma stop you right there.

Who said the 360 would bomb? There was the usual debate that you get with each console generation, but I don't think there was a single person out there who was predicting it to be the next virtual boy. It was an upgraded XBOX with a (for it's time) forward thinking focus on online.

The Kinect is a bomb. It's not even a bomb, it's a punchline. Kinect Star Wars is all that need to be said there

People have such short memories. Just because hardcore gamers didn't latch onto it doesn't make it a failure. See also: the Wii.


The Kinect claimed the Guinness World Record of being the "fastest selling consumer electronics device" after selling a total of 8 million units in its first 60 days.[18][19][20] 24 million units of the Kinect sensor had been shipped as of January 2012.[1]

Next you'll tell me that there are  no good games that use Kinect.

Kincet sold 24 million units (almost all bundled with an xbox). What was the last kinect required game to sell over a million copies? The highest rated Kinect required game on your list is Dance Central 3 and it has only sold 600k. All these Kinects out there and no one is buying games for it. When Viva Pinata sold more copies than your highest rated game there is something wrong.


Hey buddy, fark you. Viva Pinata is my jam.

Anyone who says the kinect is useless never used it with mass effect 3. Giving your squad voice commands is pretty sweet.

A function that could've been done with a $15 dollar headset.

Not buying either at launch.  Launch games aren't really moving me to want to buy at this time.

Besides, been burnt before by early purchases:
PS2 - Stopped reading CD games, then eventually DVDs
XBox360 - Lasted for a good 3 years, but eventually RROD
3DS - Substantial post-launch price cut

Besides, lots of games to keep me busy until the dust settles.

Ummm....no. What that guy upthread said about a mic being a much better option for that.

That is included with every xbox anyway.

I'm at least waiting until reviews for all the launch titles are out. It seems stupid to buy something before you even know if it is any good.

If you've ever heard a Kinect user in voice chat in a game, you would realize how bad the quality was.

Now your voice commands are going into the box at that same quality.

I'm sure it's interesting and maybe cool for a while. But it's not a must have.

In my case, a headset that came with the console in the first place.
