I think people are waiting to see exactly what the Kinect is doing for games since people were seeing what blu-ray was doing for its games which ultimately didn't pan out to much except having no multiple discs.

So basically it's really up to microsoft to come up with something fast if they want consumers to believe the kinect is truly the next great revolution to gaming other than so far having it listen to you turn on or off the machine and browse through the menus. This was clearly put in to cater to families though

Wat. It did exactly what a new disc format should do, larger disc space with faster read times and and its more scratch resistant too. Did you expect to project Nazis in your room for you to shoot?

Killing's the first thing humans learned. And a good thing we did, or we'd be dead, and the Mudcrabs would own the earth.

The PS4 and Xbone are both fine consoles. Nothing can change that.

Nice. Kinect has been Dead on arrival since Kinect 1.0 and playstation move.

And for some reason it's still being forced on us.

I disagree, blu-ray actually offered some benefits.

Why do 90% of those topics here feel like they were created by some serious meth head?
Blu-Ray was the only thing that kept the Ps3 partly alive for the first year, because the launch was such a mess.
Stop your analogies, they make my brain hurt.
Last of Us, on the other hand, looks barely better than a PS2 game.

Blu-Ray was utterly useless for the PS3 until the last couple of years. It was horrendously slow (the Wii/Xbox 360 disc drive was way faster), and it did nothing except allow multiple disc to become single disc. Since multiplats were developed on the 360, and ported over, the PS3 did not receive the graphical fidelity that Blu-Ray allows.
