Mindless PC fan agreement comment.

And even if you guys don't like them doesn't mean someone else could. I'm a hardcore Nintendo fan but I still like my 360. It's not as glamorous as the other two consoles but just because Microsoft makes a lot of stupid decisions (-cough- E3 2010 and 2011 being snorefests of casual gaming -cough- -cough- horrible dashboard updates -cough-) doesn't mean I don't like the games for it.
Also Hunter, just because you don't want to flail your arms for games doesn't mean other people don't. Saying it's not "worth it at all" because you don't want to is not a valid point.
First off I will say right here and now that I own a 360, and I enjoy playing on it. I'm also going to say that I have never stated that other people can't enjoy the Kinect or the games on Xbox. My argument is that the Kinect is a disappointment; it doesn't live up to the full potential that it could, which is very saddening and makes it all the less enjoyable for me. I have stated previously that they need a controller peripheral, and the fact that they don't just makes me feel like they're WASTING IT.
I have the Playstation Move, and after playing with it I can honestly say that it is the most fun I have had with motion controls. Sony made an error with the Move; they didn't market it. There may be other very minute errors on their part otherwise with the actual product, but I honestly believe that it is a good example of what the Kinect could have been had they given me a stick to wave around in front of it. The Kinect doesn't recognize anything other than the body, which eliminates any form of truly accurate 3D environments like the Move has. Take Datura
, for example; it fully utilizes 3D environments and the accuracy of the PS Move, which makes it a much stronger experience. Killzone 3 acts as another example; I can logically AND competitively play a full-on non-rails FPS game without being at a disadvantage through use of the PS Move.
I admit the Kinect has pretty good technology. The level of recognition it has is great, which is surprising from Microsoft. Regardless, it isn't enjoyable. I didn't care at all for the one night I was at my friend's house playing Dance Central on his Kinect; it was a dull experience, it felt like I should have shrunk myself by about half a foot to make it read me accurately, and the interface was horrid.
I would buy a Kinect in a heartbeat if they added something that I can possibly impale my TV with for better registration of my movements, but they won't and therefore I will not admit that the Kinect is a good form of motion control in my opinion. If other people enjoy it, than let them. I'm just stating my stance.
Now I'm going to back out of this thread, because I feel I have gone dreadfully off topic.
