Anyone on this board happen to know how many "Kinect" games EA is producing over the next 6 month. Kinect is on fire. I just bought the system, the family loves it! msft up quite a bit latley, any thoughts?
Kinect is a fad and will have negligable effect on the bottom line. I commend microsoft on creating something interesting that works. They should sell it across the board (ie, on PC's). I just don't think it will make much of a difference if ERTS has kinect games or not.
As much as the Wii is a Fad. IMO I didn't understand the popularity of the Wii. We bought one because "we just had to" and my kids played it for a bit, now it is a piece of furniture. Standing in front of your big screen for ~how much time~ vs. sitting has it's pros but mostly cons. Once the novelty has worn off... but look at the sales numbers for the Wii. Should be the same for kinect, I don't see the difference other than there might be more technical diversity with the Kinect.
IMO, the Wii is a novelty item not a gaming platform. I can bowl for about 10 mintues as the system interprets my 5 year old's spastic movements as continuous strikes while I constantly get splits. Versus 60+ hours of fun at Mass Effect.
