I think the delay is a good thing for gamers since the E3 demo made me want to kill babies, maybe they'll make it a worthy addition with the delay, we'll find out, eventually.

So what games does Kinect have available for the holidays?

Disney, Sesame Street, Kinect Sports 2, Dance Central 2, Gunstringer, Rise of Nightmares.

Think the other japanese ones are 2012.




By Japanese do you mean games made by Japanese teams, or Kinect titles releasing in Japan? I figure its the former rather than the latter because the 360 is supposedly getting discontinued in Japan.

In terms of Star  Wars I am skeptical if the game will ever release. If it does, I think it will be a glitched mess stealth released in May/June before E3.

As for those games, the biggest potential lies in Dance Central 2 and 'Disney'. Advertising is going to be especially important for DC2 and KS2.


Yeah the former, and no 360 isn't getting discontinued in Japan, just relegated to the stores it sells strongest in.

But yeah, they need to advertise everything they have this holiday big time now.


Geez, so now its gonna go from selling 1,500 untis a week to ~1,000? Every extra dollar counts I guess, but if that is the case, Japanese game development should have been PS3-centric for tha past 3 years, with some 360 downporting if necessary.

Advertising is MS' bread and butter; they have done it better than the competition this generation so its clutch time now.



Leatherhat on July 6th, 2012 3pm. Vita sales:"3 mil for COD 2 mil for AC. Maybe more. "  thehusbo on July 6th, 2012 5pm. Vita sales:"5 mil for COD 2.2 mil for AC."

Well considering they make a profit with every unit sold and have an high attach rate it is a little more than a few dollars.  Steel Battelion/project Draco(New panzer Dragoon) could sell some units I guess.



 

Well...that just encourages me to focus gaming on my PS3 and laptop for TOR until my R2-D2 console comes in the mail (don't judge me :P).



Hmm a pretty big hit to the 360's holiday lineup. The console and game would'ver seriously pushed some hardware especially in the 10 - 16 year olds like Seece said.

Without a price cut the 360 stands no chance of outselling PS3 WW this year IMO. They'll still win NA even with PS3's price cut but WW there's just no way I can see it happening.

I think it's a good thing it's being delayed. For one the Holiday is way to packed this year. Two, from what I've seen of the game it looks like it could use some more polishing and tweaking. There is still plenty of kinect games releasing this holiday. It's not like I was going to get the game this holiday, but if they can fix some of the issues it has I might actually consider it.



hey! Maybe they can take this extra time in development to make it not an atrocity! they heard the fanboy rants and came to their aid...

Sadly the only way to make it not suck is to practically start from scratch. this whole "no movement" thing is the #1 reason why Kinect sucks. practically every game is going to be a rail shooter or something to that effect. or dance games.

Bring it on!



My Console Library:

PS5, Switch

PS4, PS3, PS2, PS1, WiiU, Wii, GCN, N64 SNES, XBO, 360

Top 6 this generation: 
Bloodborne, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, God of War, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Dark Souls III, Red Dead Redemption II, Rock Band 4

For whatever reason this delay dosn't suprise me. They still hadn't announced a release date and holidays are fast approaching. Plus with a game like Star Wars on Kinect im sure they want to make sure any glitches are worked out before release, or else it will get slammed by critics. I think its already going to be a bit broken on the kinect anyways, but still be a good game. This was going to be the biggest kinect game for the holidays so I think with the lost sales it may suggest that the likelihood of a price cut is just a bit more likely, but still not assured. It has been my opinion, however all along that a price cut will happen this fall.




OK now that is it delayed I am going to ask what needs to be improved. By the way can we keep it civil. I fully expect some just trash it, it sucks, Kinect sucks, yada yada. You people can go just go away because really you arent adding anything to the conversation.

Now for me I was never as negative. We saw one level and controls seemed a touch laggy, but that didnt bother me. I have seen to many games 6-12 months out that the controls were sluggish and I remember all the Kinect sucks and is laggy from the year before, but by the time of the release the games were tuned and Kinect was tuned. Not to mention that I have read impressions from Gamescom that controls were already tightened up.

So to me other than continued tuning is showing a progressive game rather than mini-game compilation. So what are the problems that people think need to be fixed. Please be constructive and specific.



Its libraries that sell systems not a single game.
