What a waste don't you think? here's this piece of **** hardware that most gamers don't want, and yet they force it in the box and price it 100 bucks more than their competitor. Who the heck came up with this idea? Don Matrick?
I think it's a really cool piece of technology with a lot of potential, especially now that it will have a 100% attach rate. --- Madre de Dios, es El Pollo Diablo! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E28WrhpTzQA
It isn't just for games but I am very much looking forward to Fantasia --- the bitter truth is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. ~ Anton Ego
The bad part about the kinect situation is that it will be either be not utilized or poorly utilized for multiplatform titles.. which most games will be.
Developers will not spend the money and go through the effort to develop kinect functionality just for the xbo. If they can do so to utilize both the playstation camera AND the kinect, they will do it. But to do that, it will take advantage of neither camera's strengths. So, kinect will be largely be restricted to exclusive titles.
Microsoft had grand dreams for the kinect, and I don't believe any of them will come true.
The best they can hope for is to try and recoop their money by forcing everyone to buy it for very little reason or benefit.
