I'm making a prediction, one of the holoshit games will be called Holopet.

New ip for holoshit, like kinectimals for kinect.

Take your time with the thread! I'm sure you'll do a great job. If you need help, I'd be happy to help as well. 

Don't worry about the lack of posts though. As you said, E3 will attract a lot of users. And maybe instead of making a dedidcated MS E3 thread this year, we can just use your new Empire thread to help kick start it. 

Think he's already partially done with the MS E3 thread though



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

You know, you may not like the idea of hololens or appreciate its potential, but no reason to call it shit just because it may not appeal to you or even before you've had a chance to try it out or have seen the final product and its offerings.  Besides, HoloLens is being targeted more towards the non-gaming side of things anyways. 



Yeah, calling it something including "shit" instead of the real name was unnecessary regardless of how you like it. If you would go in a thread and say "Playshit" or "XBOshit" you would get banned for it and arguing with "I think it's shit and that's why I call it so" wouldn't really help to get away with it in forums^^

I'm personally very interested in stuff like Oculus but right now not in Hololens. I think for gaming it looks inferior (I don't want to see the real world while playing, I want to see only the game) and for other stuff like helping companies for something it might be great but nothing I need it for right now.

Yeah shit is unnecessary, call it bullshit or something else =p. Not expecting much from hololens this E3 (or hope so).



Shit is such a sweet way to call it.

I could just call it piece of garbage tech, but I'm controlling myself.

(Holopet is a real thing btw)



^That may be an overstatement. At the very least HoloLens is a disappointment though. For a year we thought Microsoft's 1st party might finally be catching up to Sony and Nintendo in size, only to learn that all of those new studios were working with HoloLens except for one (Decisive). Then we learned that HoloLens was going to cost far too much much for the average gamer to afford (more than Xbox One itself). And then the icing on the disappointment cake was learning that MS was wasting some of our precious 90 minutes at E3 on a device that doesn't appeal to the average gamer. It kind of reminds me of Kinect, a device with potential that will probably never be realized, and will ultimately be abandoned by MS, leaving the customers who paid for it with next to nothing.

Exactly. I can only point negative points to it, as a gamer.

Hololens is not a Xbox peripheral. MS is not marketing it solely as a gaming platform (it's a standalone device).
