Why can't Kinect just fucking die? I can't believe Xbox is banking their entire E3 on this gimmick device. It didn't set the world on fire last year, and it won't this year either.

It's not hurting anything. Just ignore it.

Fable wouldn't exist without Kinect, so no big deal. The other two are still playable with a controller. The Kinect stuff is just extra. Again, it's not hurting anything.

Where do you think those features come from? They take time and money away from other features. Who is to say there wouldn't be a different/tweaked Fable game instead of whatever the fuck that was they showed?

^ Ghost Recon

Again, the 360 is selling like gangbusters, INCLUDING Kinect. The Wii and PS3 are not. Why drop the price? They're creaming the other two monthly.

I'm sure they have a price drop in the wings, just to be reactionary to what Sony does. As of now, they don't need to be the first one to drop the price.

I did miss large portions of the Microsoft briefing (thanks a lot, job), but after reading up on it, I don't think I missed much. Other than Dance Central 2, I don't think there's a single 360 game revealed during the briefing that I'm excited about at all. :sad:

Joystiq just posted that MS announced post-show they are doing cloud storage for save games!

Now, why not do that during the show?

http://www.joystiq.com/2011/06/06/cloud-storage-coming-to-xbox-live-game-saves-and-profile-on-t/

Were you underwhelmed by Microsoft's Kinect-heavy press conference and the notable absence of any long-overdue Xbox Live infrastructure improvements? So were we!

Which is why the legitimately exciting post-conference announcement of "Cloud Storage for Game Saves and Live Profiles" is all the more confusing. Instead of a splashy stage presentation, the reveal was buried in a recap email from Xbox's Marc Whitten. "We are making it easier for you to sign into your Xbox Live account from any console at any time to access your game saves and full profile, including items such as Microsoft Points to make purchases, Achievements and friends," the email reads. "C loud storage will allow you to enjoy the same great Xbox Live gaming experience even when you're not in your own living room by giving you the option to store your 'game saves' securely in the Xbox Live cloud instead of on a portable memory unit or your console's hard drive."

That means no more clumsy "gamertag recovery" which we're pretty excited about. We have all sorts of other questions about this service – Is it for Gold members only? Does it save revisions of your save files or just one? Is there a limited number of console activations? Can multiple consoles be signed in at once? Is there a size limit? – and we'll try to get them answered as quickly as we can.

^ Ninja'd on the Cloud, but upped the ante with Beacons (which I hope to block!)

http://kotaku.com/5809076/cloud-storage-for-game-saves-beacons-coming-to-xbox-live

Beacons. We want to make it easy for you to connect with friends over your favorite games on Xbox LIVE, so we are introducing Beacons to the service. Beacons are a way to tell your Xbox LIVE and Facebook friends that you want to play a game on Xbox LIVE. By setting a Beacon, you tell Xbox LIVE what you want to play. Then, Xbox LIVE lets you know when friends are playing or want to play the same game. With Beacons, no matter what you're currently doing on Xbox LIVE your friends know that it's ok to ask you to play your Beaconed games. Imagine sending out a Beacon to let your friends know you're interested in playing "Halo," while watching a movie on Netflix. It's about making it easier for you to share and discover games and multiplayer opportunities with friends on Xbox LIVE.

Cloud Storage for Game Saves and LIVE Profile. Here at Xbox LIVE we listen to your feedback. We are making it easier for you to sign into your Xbox LIVE account from any console at any time to access your game saves and full profile, including items such as Microsoft Points to make purchases, Achievements and friends. Cloud storage will allow you to enjoy the same great Xbox LIVE gaming experience even when you're not in your own living room by giving you the option to store your "game saves" securely in the Xbox LIVE cloud instead of on a portable memory unit or your console's hard drive. Gone are the days of "gamertag recovery." Now all you need to do is sign in, no matter where you are!

Thanks pinata. I don't know what I was expecting, but that leaves me a little underwhelmed. My kids might like it, but to me it looks a bit like a bunch of mini-games with questionable responsiveness at best (then again, I'm a card-carrying Kinect hater, so maybe I'm biased). The beginning looked amazing as the park was navigated, but the "rides"? I'll hold off judgement for now. But I thought Epic Mickey was a can't miss project, and that didn't turn out too well. I hope this is more fun than those kid actors made it appear.

pinata242
06-06-11, 04:31 PM
Yeah, it's basically Adventures with a Disney skin. I'm just hoping the "shell" is amazing because it looks it. And since it'll come out a year after I took my kids to Disneyworld, it'll be a nice reminder.

That's exactly what it is. I love of the idea of the recreated layout of the park however. It's the closest I can get to this (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walt_Disney_World_Explorer) again. I love me some Disney parks.
