Here is what you know, project natal (aka Kinect)is a advanced motion control device for xbox 360.
Here is what you may not know. IT'S A GATEWAY TO CASUALIZATION!!!!!!!! It's unfortunate but true. The xbox 360 currently has a mostly hardcore player base, and mostly "m" rated hardcore games are released for it. but then Kinect was announced and I knew it would be dark days for hardcore gamers. if you go to "xbox.com/kinect" at the bottom of the page you will see a list of games made exclusivity for Kinect, there all (except maybe the Sonic game) casual games made by game developers who came up and said "hey let's exploit the new motion controls and completely ignore things like gameplay, story or fun".
How do I know motion control will cause games to be casual? IT'S HAPPENED BEFORE!!!! believe it or not, before xbox was hardcore capital of the gaming industry, hardcore and casual coexisted peacefully among the consoles of nintendo. This came to an end when nintendo decided to favor casual gamers over hardcore gamers, and released the WII. when the WII was released game focused on the controls and less on the 3 key factors of video games (gameplay, story and graphics) as a result less and less nintendo games got ratings of 9.5 (before that rating was allover nintendo power's rating section), a few xbox 360 games are getting 10s.
Casualization happened to the WII, and Kinect is inviting it to xbox 360
How do we close shut the gates of casualization? nintendo did not give us much choice with the WII, but fortunately Microsoft did. All we have to do is simply not buy Kinect (easier said then done, as the majority of Microsofts customers must agree to the boycott)
