    Major, is this available outside the US? My boy would love Sesame Street! (We are in the UK)

    Propper games, please. my kinect is dying by now. It’s almost 2 years from release and kinect catalogue is still marginal.

    If I wanted just coach games I would have went to the gim.
    If I wanted just minigames colection shovelware I’d get a wii.

    Also, it would be awesome if the Fit APP could work with ALL THE CURRENT KINECT TITLES. Sure there’s a way to figure out a solution, even if it’s a guessing like “playing 15 min. X game = aprox. X cal.”

    Sorry to be like this but MS’s doings feel lazy and halfassed. (yet love what could thing be if handled propperly)

      At the moment the Kinect is a beta project that we all payed to use… When the next gen box comes out I think we will see a much better reception to Kinect. As it is right now it doesn’t track things quickly enough or accurately enough to warrant big budget titles.

      That being said there are a lot of cool games to be played. Personally I like the voice activation it gives me inside Netflix… that by itself is worth it to me.

      • Z4M0

        That’s what makes me sad. To pay for beta (couldn’t agree more w/you) hardware with scarce beta software so next gen kinect users will have the true thing in their hands.

        I really don’t know what will I be doing by the time next gen pops up or what system I’ll be buying in case I do so :(

      Well for hardcore gamers we’ve got Child of Eden, and er…

      Crimson Dragon? Oh no wait that missed the release window and hasn’t been seen since.

      Actually, Major? I would REALLY like to know what’s going on with that. I know I’ve said one or two negative things about the Kinect (literally hundreds of things every week) but that title looks incredibly interesting. Any chance you could do some digging?

    So are you going to release a Kinect update with these games so it can proporly track kids.

  • Russell Gorall

    Reminds me, I have to try and sell my Kinect.

    How about some games, Microsoft? You remember games? You used this thing called a controller and pressed buttons, it was really fun!

    • SomeRandomJerk

      Yeah, hate to break it to you bucko, these games arent for you then. The world doesnt revolve around you in case you havent figured it out yet.

      • http://twitter.com/Navarin Buster Wolf

        I am stunned by this shocking revelation!
        Looks like MS doesn’t revolve around gamers either…

        • SomeRandomJerk

          Yeah, if “gamers” represent meathead commenters like yourself and half the internet, then good riddance.

          • http://twitter.com/Navarin Buster Wolf

            It would be nice to look at a Kinect product and not shake
            my head in complete and utter disdain, that’s all.

            (Wow Disqus what’s with you adding that HUGE @ to some posts and not others I mean really.)

          • SomeRandomJerk

            Whatever the case may be, god forbid any game is actually made specifically to engage children, or someone like me who wants an alternative to P90x. Like I said, the world doesnt revolve around you.

          • http://twitter.com/Navarin Buster Wolf

            Wish it did. That would be awesome.

          • SomeRandomJerk

            Im pretty sure thats been the premise of a ton of sitcom episodes.

    My kids would love the Sesame Street title. Where can we learn more about it?

  • http://twitter.com/lochdoun Bry

    Xbox gamers want hardcore controller based exclusives, not shovelware.
    Most of us will switch to PS4 next gen; you can count on it.

    • SomeRandomJerk

      Good, one less meathead to worry about then.

    • http://twitter.com/Navarin Buster Wolf

      Now now, let’s not do anything hasty.

      you haven’t even see the ps4 (or 720) yet.

    • http://www.facebook.com/michael.arangio.9 Michael Arangio

      Hardcore controller-based exclusives like SSB clone and LBP Karting? LOL.

  • arkhunter

    Amazon links say Nat Geo and Sesame St. Are $49.99.

    I want to give my kids Kinect games but so far it’s been very hit or miss. Happy Action Theater was an out of the ballpark homerun. Sesame Street Once Upon a Monster was an excercise in frustration. Both games made by the same developer. After all this time I’m hoping publishers have grasped what the Kinect can do and what it can’t. When it works, it’s awesome.

    • SomeRandomJerk

      We’ll probably see better uses of it with a hopefully more refined version when the next xbox comes out.

      • Z4M0

        you don’t say ? :D
