  • Why does everyone say "If you dont include Kinect you will split the audience" ? It makes no sense, the audience is ALREADY SPLIT by mere fact that the games come out for PS4 as well, PS4 has no Kinect, thereby it will be just a tack on feature. Yes there are exclusives, but any 100% kinect game is as gimmicky as the WiiU tablet.

    My point here is that Kinect even being in every box, most of the time will be as useless as a "Honk" button on Mario Kart WiiU tablet... Do we really expect any one of 3rd party titles that are coming out for both PS4 and X-bone to have unique features to utilize Kinect that are not simply quick one guy spent one day on it tack ons?

  • Hey Jeff, please read this.

    I've picked a fight with you a few times in the past over how you've chosen to respond to criticism, so I thought it was only fair I tell you something.

    A couple threads down, you posted this:

    "I know I shouldn't respond, and I shouldn't care so much, but this is some hurtful shit in this thread.
    I don't make my living doing Weekend Confirmed. I do it for fun. But I don't know why anyone would want to to put themselves through this kind of thing. It's awful. "

    I just wanted to say, this reply is, frankly, beautiful. It's direct, it's non-confrontational, and more to the point, it's honest. Most importantly, it opens up a line of communication with the very people who are giving you grief. The ball is in their court as to how they respond, but either way, you can walk away knowing that at the very least, you extended an olive branch.

    To be clear, I'm staying completely impartial to the argument itself. It doesn't matter to me who's "right" and who's "wrong," just that the way you handled yourself in the face of all the negativity is admirable.

    Sometimes, it can feel like nobody pays you any attention until you piss them off. It can be hard to be the bigger man, I just wanted to let you know that it didn't go unnoticed.

  • In response to being accused of being a Microsoft fanboy:

    I ordered my day one XBO (and plan to order a PS4 as well), these so called bad things don't bother me because they don't effect me. I don't buy used games because I believe in supporting the publishers and devs. I have a stack of about 80+ 360 games so I obviously don't trade them in or give them away either. I have a pretty reliable broadband connection so that's fine too. Hell, I watch a ton of TV so i'm even on board for that! I'm even a big NFL fan (STEELERS!), so they got me there too. This box works for me, that doesn't mean I'm a fanboy, if it doesn't work for you right now, that's cool. Maybe a PS4 is the right choice for you, that is the beauty of a competitive environment, CHOICES.
