Revolutionary Rant: Kinects Will Continue To Gather Dust
Posted on Thursday, March 10 @ 21:30:01 Eastern by Daniel Bischoff
Where oh where have the core games gone?! We've heard the promises time and time again! Maybe Microsoft's Senior Interactive Entertainment Business Producer Kevin Unangst can give us the hard information we've been searching for:
You named two games. You ONLY NAMED TWO GAMES!!! One of those is even multiplatform!
Was it also very intentional for Microsoft to have mostly BAD games at launch and then a deep, unending pit of nothingness so that Kinects everywhere get their fair share of the dust the Wii has been hogging?
So why not encourage some damn XBLA game development?! Get some smaller Kinect experiences out there in between retail releases!
Ugh! Fuck you. You're spewing the same goddamn crap every other Microsoft mouthpiece has spewed since the Kinect's launch. It wasn't convincing when Peter Molyneux said it and we don't even know who you are. Your title takes longer to say than it does to list every member of the Twisted Pixel development team.
And speaking of those guys, as great as some of their games have been, I wouldn't rest your laurels on that team. Rarely do they really hit it out of the park, and even then there isn't a system seller in their backlog. If you plan on moving any more Kinects in the next few months, you'll need to release something of intrinsic value to the core gamer and casual gamer alike. Platforms, and let's remember you called the Kinect a platform launch, are not built on shitty knock-offs and Harmonix's collective backs. Dance Central wasn't even a first party game.
Saying that now is just the beginning is really the cherry on top. I swear to God, I don't even have the room to play Kinect in my room right now. The fucking thing needs so much space I had to base my apartment hunt on the damn thing. You spent the money promoting this God-awful piece of technology, where are the damn games?!
