kinect is a camera that captures your movements and displays it on screen so you can play games. even if you dont use the camera is still must be plugged in.

this news has been confirmed since the person who sold the development kit was raided by police

this pretty much means you will be constantly watched and heard when playing games, watching movies, surfing the web, etc.

So what if you are being watched, build your own PC, put Win 7 on it, Or Linux w/ WINE, and have complete control over everything you want.


Consoles are for kids and semi-retarded adults anyway.

I had a Kinect, I sold a kinect. It was the worst attachment I ever bought for a console.

I've been hearing some great things are the PS4 on developer forums. I think this next gen I am going to switch back to Playstation and PC for gaming.

I'm reasonably sure they will be making it so that if Kinect doesn't detect you, you'll just get a stop error and you won't be able to go any further until it's 'fixed'.

I won't be buying the next Xbox, because aside from the Kinect thing, they also are going to require 24/7 internet connection, and they are putting the squeeze on second hand games, trying to make it so that you can't sell your own property, and can't buy cheap games second hand.

I hope this console buries them.

If it's physical movement the Kinect detects then just use a filter. Greyscale tends to mess up CCD sensors.

If this is true, which I doubt, it is purely because the Kinect sucks donkey balls and Microsoft wants to try and squeeze as much as they can out of their failure.

There is also a Microsoft patent out, showing Kinect being able to detect how many people are in the room. If you go to watch a movie and you only have 1 paid license, but 3 viewers it will stop your movie and prompt you to pay for the additional viewers.

This is where tech, video games, and movie and I part ways. I'll stick with my older setups if I have to, but I won't be a part of this.

They are rumored also, including the next Playstation to require internet connections at all times and will not support used or rental games. Again, we part ways here.

Re: Next Generation Xbox requires the Kinect in order to work, camera must be plugged in while you play games, watch videos, etc
The amount of FUD being spread about the new playstation and xbox is fucking ridiculous.

The only thing that will be true is games will probably come with codes for the online, the day one DLC trend may continue with some games leaving out some single player content until you have registered the code, which say downloads a new weapon at the start of a game or something.

Basically a tactic to decrease pre owned sales without eliminating them, and a tactic to gather data on true day one sales.

Interesting features we may see this gen on both consoles

I expect both consoles will have or will introduce 3D TV support for splitscreen gaming without splitscreen or something.

DEV spec to eliminate loading times by offloading work to multicore cpu's whilst the GPU is rendering. Essentially shit loading in the background.

100% hard drive adoption of atleast 250gb and enough internet userbase leading to mmo type releases.

Multitasking GUI support, such as booting a web browser whilst playing a game.

Kinect only has a userbase of 24 million. Out of those i wonder who use it every time they game?

You honestly think out of a console userbase of potentially 100 million consoles they are going to force 50% of them who probably dont have online, or only have sporadic online to be unable to play.... and they would force 75 million users to upgrade to a control standard that is sub par?

and you think this strategy is the operating release strategy of a large multinational company that is not only one of the most powerful companies in the world, but probably in the top 3 most powerful when it comes to computing.

cruise

None of this shit is final, it was water testing. The ps4 will be announced tomorrow and microsoft will make adjustments gauged on the feedback from the PS4 announcement.

Online only - no
Kinect only - no
No pre owned games - no ( but massive code adoption for online portions )

Blu-Ray on all consoles - yes
At least 250gb HD's - yes

The new XBOX and PS4 will kill the Wii U. It will be like a PS competing with a PS2 or the original XBOX.

I'll sit and watch and see how things play out first.

If either of the consoles require constant internet connections I'll just stick with my PS3 for now and sell it later on and probably build a gaming PC.

I really don't like the idea of a connected, locked down system that will forever sit and passively listen in on every conversation in the room. Just the thought of that creeps me out.
