Comment posted Sony closes the gap on Microsoft; 2.9 million difference by Splitting Void.

Kinect is going to suck. Dancing like a queef? Hitting fat red balls? Poking a Kinectimal for fun? At least Move’s got support for triple-A titles. All of Kinect’s games honestly look like time-wasting trash that belongs in a weak iTouch App and knowing Microsoft’s hardware history it’s going to glitch and mess up like hell and they’re just going to keep money-milking their sheep. Honestly, what kind of serious game do you expect to play with this? Oh so you want to be able to kick in your fighting games? I bet the Kinect can hardly even track forward kicks. BTW that Project Natal trailer was fake and heavily edited. It’s only shown the ability to track you jumping and spreading your legs wide and hoping it hits a ball headed for your feet. Yeah, you could totally drop some 2-foot gremlin with a kick like that. Kinect is an unbelievably lame waste of money that’s just meant to grab some quick cash and new 360 buyers.

  • @Reigen, you may be right. But I hope people realize that Kinect is garbage before they spend $150 or so on something so lame. It’s so lame that even their star wars game and their posing-to-hit-the-balls game are on rails because they have no way of actually moving around without a controller and it’s probably going to mess up their Kinect games if they try to implement a controller into them as well, because the camera will pick up the movements of your controller and do unintended things in the game. The concept is OK, but the technology isn’t sophisticated enough to handle doing it right, and knowing MS, they’re going to do a great job advertising and a sloppy job on quality control.

  • Sony reveals 3DTV in a visor
    Damn, if it works without a TV and with 3D Blu-Ray then I’m sold. I can just chill in my cramped space and play games and watch movies in 3DHD. Only drawback is that others can’t really watch with you, but I mostly play games by myself anyway.
  • Crytek boss believes PS Vita may struggle against mobiles and tablets
    I don’t even want mobiles or tablets for gaming…because for one thing their controls and tech aren’t ideal for gaming, and for another thing most of their games lack length, depth, and replay value unless you’re bored out of your mind out somewhere and have a few minutes to play something that looks like it could be made with flash and played for free on the internet. I still think of the PSP and Vita as a portable console to play in the comfort of my room without a console or while I have some time when I’m away from home. As far as I’m concerned, it’s a different market and I don’t want to see the portable console market’s triple-A games die just for the app game market. I have little interest in wasting time playing variations of tower-defense games on an iPod Touch if I have the opportunity to get into a rich storylines, detailed design, and hardcore gameplay on a PSP or Vita.
  • What the PSP did right – and wrong
    I’d take big killer games like Monster Hunter Portable 3rd Dissidia Duodecim and Bleach Heat the Soul 7 over Angry Birds and Plants vs Zombies or Pokemon any day. For me the PSP most often wasn’t the kind of thing I intended use to pass a couple minutes, I personally would play quickie games on a smartphone for that or just listen to music. My fat original PSP did work well being carried in my bag to school or in my cargo pants pockets to pass free time with my friends or when I went on trips or long commutes and felt like relaxing with some quality progressive games rather than quickie games that get repetitive fast. I thought of the PSP more like a portable console and I prefer it to be that way.
  • Sony Confirms Network Pass Program
    I don’t buy used games unless they’re dirt cheap anyway so buying another pass isn’t a big deal to me.
  • The State of Playstation Home
    I’m not much of a social chatting person. I like helping people and teaming up with people in MMOs and multiplayer games through. Games that give you in-game currency to buy stuff would be good.

    I have high hopes for Sony but i think Microsoft might take this Holiday season. Microsoft will cut the price even more and Sony won’t. So microsoft will most likely sell even more units.

  • TRF

    Kinect is going to widen the gap, and I don’t think GT5 will be able to make up for it.

  • ARC-1300

    personally have never been into the whole console wars thing, but i will say one thing. Kinect is gonna bomb so hard, its not even funny. oh well, it just seems kind of sad they spent that whole time trying to copy sony’s eye toy when it could have been better spent grabbing new gaming ip’s, or something IMHO

  • Reigen

    witch will boost more console sales this holyday season?
    gt5 with 1000+ cars and 200mph drifts
    or Kinect with Milo and the Big Red Balls

  • Thorzilla

    It’s game over for MS this christmas. They might have that crap Kinect and all their marketing, but they’re all done for with GT5. It will be a STELLAR seller in Europe. They better bundle a 320Gb with GT5.

    @Splitting Void, Thorzilla
    my comment was more of a joke, remember that there is a big casual market, and not just that, parents will buy cheep stuff for their children like they do with the wii, and lets not forget microsoft is good at marketing stuff(halo:odst is a good exsample)
    and the curent buggs and gliches you see in showcases will not be seen in the final product, and if so they will come with patches that will ewentualy fix all of that
    yes, it does hawe no true potential for hardcore gamers and uses a gimic that could hawe worked better, but lets not forget that nintedndo wii is doing the same thing and selling like crack despite having only a pathetic 5 AAA games

    @Splitting Void
    yea, i know
    there is a wery good reason why motion capture requires you to hawe focus points on youre mocap suit,(or in this case a ball on youre move controler) because the acuracy just isnt there without them
    (sadly)working controler-less gameplay is just not posible with current technology
