    See if you can find the NES reference in the video. lol

    The video may not be all that embarrassing, but Microsoft's claims of "completely new experiences" and "revolutionary" are incredibly disappointing. Really... it's like the PS2 EyeToy with Wii Games all packed into a (most most likely) expensive add on for the Xbox.

    I'm sure it didn't go anything like that at all.

    I feel like I just got rick-rolled without the courtesy of music.

    What stuff? The Xbox is already expensive... plus the Kinect.... I guess.

    The Wii was built for motion play. That was the core hardware of the console. The PS3 and Xbox360 can't quite match up to it -- even with add-ons -- because that wasn't what the PS3/Xbox360 was made for. The core of their consoles was creating a 1080p HiDef, intricate entertainment and serious gaming experience. The Wii wasn't made for that kind of gaming, so... add-ons to make it more high def may end up making the Wii look cheaper.

    Just a lowly gay mans opinion ;-]

    I doubt that it matters whether the manufacturers had motion play in mind when they first made the system. The Eye Toy, which plays into Sony's Move, and Kinect add-ons are sufficient for bringing motion gaming to their respective consoles. Not to mention that with the few years since Wii came out, technology allows the two companies to possibly bring a better motion gaming experience.

    I like the idea of the Kinect not needing peripherals but feel that they are necessary for certain games, ie those that need buttons.

    In my opinion, Sony's Move can probably offer the best experience of the three since the glowing orbs will allow a greater tracking of the player's position in space (which the Wii does not do) and the controllers allow it to be played for any type of game that can be played on Wii (unlike Kinect).

    I've spent time with Kinect, and with Move. Kinect is a solid product, and assuming the software line-up isn't just PR spin, I think it will do just fine. Move is a little too much like Wii's contoller, but it seems to be more appropriate for gameplay, if only due to the fact that you're holding a controller, vs. Kinect's controller-free approach.

    The real winner at the year's E3 is Nintendo's 3DS. It's truly an amazing product.

    Microsoft has a pattern of introducing new products with false claims of original and revolutionary features. Even Bill Gates himself used to stand up there at media events like this, and introduce a new Windows version by making all these "for the first time ever" statements, conveniently overlooking that the Mac OS had the same features and better years earlier.

    Maybe we're supposed to interpret these claims as really meaning "for the first time ever FOR MICROSOFT." MS was never embarrassed in the past with this kind of overblown marketing approach, so I don't know why they'd be embarrassed by it now.
