Why has Xbox gone so Kinect Krazy?

#1ScumGoatPosted 7/8/2011 9:16:39 AM
I don't have kinect, and like a lot of my friends, i feel as if the original market (13-20 year olds) have been pushed aside to this stupid "Family Gaming!" market. Everything to do with xbox is advertising kinect, and you can see proof - Almost a third of the top bar on Xbox.com is KINECT... AND it's capitalized. I feel really let down, being a gold member for almost 3 years. I'm seriously thinking of moving to PS3, despite the hacking issues. I'm unable to play kinect, as a normal teen, my room is too messy/too small, and i am NOT moving my xbox downstairs.

What're your thoughts?

It sold a ****load of units and you're wondering why it's getting software support?

You feel let down? lol Grow up. You don't like the Kinect or its games that's fine. There are plenty of other games for you to play currently, coming out or in development.

I bet the room problem is also going to be Microsoft's fault right?


I might as well start questioning why GTA, COD, Uncharted, Halo, Killzone, MGS, Mario and Zelda games keep on getting sequels.

This isn't Nintendo. Microsoft doesn't release something and not support it.

Kinect comes out and recieves no support and people say that it was only a fad.

Kinect comes out and developers develop software for it and people ask why this fad is getting so much support.

None of you are listening to what i am saying.

SJA, they may have sold a load of units, but why forget about the teenage market? I mean, nintendo have already sealed the family market, why are xbox trying to take over that?

Kidwgm, All the upcoming sequels to my current games either have kinect support or are fully kinect only.

mikewu1, We keep making them because we know we're right. Although i haven't seen one of these before.

You kinect lovers sicken me. When did you buy your xbox?

And how long is it going to be before microsoft make EVERYTHING on xbox kinect only? I think kinect is a good idea n all but i have played it, it's nothing special. Eyetoy on ps2 was extactly the same. My room being too small is not microsofts fault, But i can still say that a huge number of xbox players in their teens, living in the UK, have tiny rooms like mine. Xbox might want to consider who their true market is.

You should have considered your room size before even buying such things.
