Sacrificing a small bit of power to gain an innovative peripheral is smart.

The Wii wasn't HD and for 2006 the wiimote was very revolutionary.

The Gamepad for the wiiu is useful with offtv play, being able to type into your console, hacking in deus ex, issuing order for pikmin captains.

The One is price parity with ps4, since bundles are $450.

So you're literally taking a small hit in power and gaining a $200 device that you can do all sorts of things with.

People played ps1 and ps2 over n64 and gamecube when the latter consoles were superior. Now you're all desperate to squeeze every bit of pixel at the cost of a game changer like Kinect.

Innovative? How can it be innovative when it is a marginal improvement of something that existed before?

Where is the evidence of this device being a "game changer" in gaming?

You might have a point in console interactivity, but last I checked, the primary function of game consoles is...games.

I love my Xbox but it has zero to do with the kinect.
Also how is it innovative?

And the wii was cheaper and actually fun to play with. I can't say the same with kinect.

It would be, if they did more with it. The same goes for the Wii U's Gamepad. The peripherals are interesting, but they hardly make innovative and extensive use of it in games.

Hmm...

For starters, it is not a small bit of power, not at all.

Secondly the Kinect is not innovative in the least. Nothing Microsoft has done for gaming has ever been innovative. I have said this time and time again, yet people still dont't understand.

lots of holes in every sentence
innovative? maybe a little if you like voice commands. Kinect 1.0 did this too.
I would like to add that yes ps2 was not on the same graphical level as xbox
It had way more games...Way more exclusives, way more support all around
microsoft will do just fine when they release more exclusives.....problem is history is the best indicator of future. They gave up on 360....they did.
The One is price parity with ps4, since bundles are $450. NO Fuzzy math is not math
So you're literally taking a small hit in power and gaining a $200 device that you can do all sorts of things with. You pulled that from your pooper

im not sure if the whole post was some inside joke or you being serious
