    much better, lets face it bungies recent games are not worth buying, All the games since halo 3 have been disappointing and that's putting it nicely

    on the other hand microsoft can make forza + flight simulator etc, all very good games which run surprisingly well on low powered hardware

    no it looks like all the previous ones did but with a bigger price tag and number stuck on it (same multilayer different location for the single player)

    though you might be slightly biased by the looks of your avatar...

    then again i might be considered biased as i got Battlefield bc2 a few weeks ago and its the best fps i've played in a long time (and for less then £10!!)

    Wasn't very impressed with Microsoft's conference this year, they essentially only showed three good hard core exclusive games the entire conference (Gears of War 3, Halo 4, Forza Motorsport 4) the rest was Kinect related garbage. I wish they would of at least showed off/announced some more good multiplatform games, as that would of easily compensated (like maybe Hitman:Absolution and XCOM).

    I agree with you

    XBox 720? Kinect is nothing more than extra frosting that nobody really wants on an old stale cake.

    Ya to be honest i actually was thinking to myself about how they were going to really pull this off, as they really didn't have anything that i haven't heard about already (like Gears 3 and Forza 4, which were already announced last year)

    I was expecting that at least they would give us a glimps into some newly announced multiplatform games to make up for the lack of good exclusive titles, but instead they filled it with Kinect crap and other new social networking type features that i don't give a shit about.

    Microsoft invested a lot of money and research into Kinect. it's not even a year old. it's Sony who should be moving on to greener pastures.. Move had no momentum at all.

    As far as the consumer is concerned does Kinect have any momentum?

    it does, i know people who bought it after they saw how rubbish the wii controller was

    for me however, i still use the controller, cause kinect is far too much effort

    I just don't get this motion controlled stuff. I'd rather just go out and play. Over the weekend I played some soccer (football/whatever) with a bunch of friends and it was a much better experience than any game console could offer. It was free too! I played Wii bowling once and it was fun, but the whole time I was thinking how much better actual bowling is.

    people keep buying it. Microsoft has sold over 10 million units. Microsoft has a brighter future in motion gaming. Kinect titles, core titles with Kinect support, Windows support, dash gestures and voice commands, avatar Kinect, etc.

    On a serious not (though I'm never really that serious when it comes to games) it will be intereting to see what more they can come up with. They still need a better console in my opinion.

    You don't have to get it. It's what the market wants. Turns out, there's a $hitload more people in the 1-70 demographic, than the 12-25 demographic. Wii proved it's viability in marketing games that appeal outside of the tween/teen/20 something area.

    Companies, make money. Microsoft, cares more now about that market than they ever have in the past. The future of shooters/PC/good multiplayer games for the 13-25 area, lies in Steam, where DRM functions(to a certain extent).
