  7. All that game is is a run on nostalgia. It won't be anything like the n64 one.

    Edit: Except for graphics, since activision in its cleverness are just like "Oh hey, we can cut down the budget of this game by making no effort in the graphics and just say its a throwback to the n64 one."
     
  8. "When the price tags popped up at the Sony press conference, there was a bit of grumbling from the audience. In the United States, the PlayStation Move wand will cost $49.99 and the navigation controller – the little bit with an analog stick – will cost an additional $29.99. An $80 entry cost to Sony's new method of control? People weren't thrilled. However, it turns out that the navigation controller isn't a necessity. If you want to, you can hold your SixAxis or DualShock 3 controller in your left hand and the PlayStation Move in your right and not miss a beat."

    Cool!
     
  9. yep, that'll work wonderfully.
     
  10. It looks like Microsoft finally fixed the RROD issue with the 360 S. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>
     
  11. We already heard that the legacy Xbox 360 consoles would see a price cut with the introduction of the new Xbox 360 slimster. Now Walmart has sweetened the deal with a tempting Father's Day bundle. Up through June 20th, purchasing a newly priced $149 Xbox 360 Arcade gets you a $50 Walmart eGift card (usable only on Walmart.com and Samsclub.com) on top of the two free games (Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts and Viva Piñata), wireless controller, and 256MB of memory already included in Microsoft's Spring Bundle. So really, a console that cost $199 just a few days ago is now selling for $99. Not bad.

    Something about it doesnt seem as extreme as the original, but it still seems alright.
     
  15. I just looked at the specs and realised that the old 360 doesnt have a kinetic port !!!! Does this mean you have to buy a new 360 to play kinetic?!!?!
     
  16. !??!!

    omg

    !!!?!
     
  17. well its just stupid not allowing old 360 users to use kinetic. So they are saying everyone who wants to use kinetic must buy a new 360?
     
  18. are you some sort of retard who has never heard of USB?
     
  19. why create a kinetic port if usb will suffice?
     
  20. so if 2 people want to play a bow and arrow game, you need 4 lollipops at $50 each?

    makes kinect seem like hell of a bargain.
     
  21. USB doesn't suffice. The kinect port allows you to run kinect without an external power supply since USB doesn't provide enough power to run the cameras and motors.

    Jeez, you of all people should know this shit.
     
  22. This is how I understand it...

    360 S -- Kinect port handles everything, only one cable needed
    360 -- Kinect needs two cables; USB to Xbox and a separate power cord

    "Sony's PlayStation Move motion-tracking 'wands' may lack a killer app, but they don't miss a gesture. Where my time with Microsoft's body-mapping Kinect camera revealed an experience premised on somewhat laggy, clearly casual-angled motion-tracking, playing with Sony's Move wands and smaller propulsion-oriented sub-controller was like upgrading to high fidelity." -- PC World

    Also, LOL @
     
  24. Amazon, GameStop, and Walmart are all pricing Kinect at $149 now.

    Will any of you guys "jump in" at that price?
     
  25. "Right now, Kinect only works when you stand. This includes menu navigation. All the cool options to grab a slider and advance through frames of a movie you are watching only work when you are on your feet. Kinect, we've been told, has problems handling your skeletal frame while sitting. The voice commands still work, but every game we've seen and even simple menu navigation have to be done with you out of your seat. That's not exactly how I want to watch my movies. If the focus for Kinect is creating games like Dance Central that naturally would require you to be off your couch, that's great. But I have to say, no one thinks "I am driving a car!" while standing up in their living room." -- IGN
