Does anyone have the new Xbox Live app for iPod/iPhone/iPad? It's called My Xbox Live, and it's free. I recommend getting it, it's a really great app and a bold new direction for Microsoft.

Got an email today from UbiSoft about a 1-day sale on AC Revelations for $35.99 + Free Shipping from Amazon! Sweet! I had been waiting to pick it up, and just $39 (with tax) was too good to pass up.

In other news, i don't think it is possible for me to hate the new dashboard look more. The horror ... the horror ... F you, Microsoft.

Yeah I dont like it either. Although I have heard that if you dont except the update than you can keep the old dashboard look, if you did except the update like me than you are SOL.

I like the update. I'm a bug fan of metro and while this isn't the best version of it I blame that on how mircosoft operates and not waiting for Nextbox for this.

Yeah, 400 MS points is a heck of a deal for this game. I had forgot they were re-releasing the game for XBLA and PSN when I saw it the other day I had to download it. Still an awesome game all these years later. The port itself is very well done, controls are spot on and it looks great.

So I'm out of a Xbox 360 once again - though I'm sure many of you already know this - another system screwing up on me, so I sold it off while I could at least get something out of it, so I'll not be online on the 360 anymore, and I'm certainly not buying another one....again. Haha. My Xbox loved me, but the 360's hate me for some reason. I mean, all I do is play them, but they just keep dying.

So, this story is really hot in the gaming world today and I wanted to see what you guys think of it.

My opinion, they're getting way ahead of themselves with the thought that Kinect is the future of Microsoft. Yeah, they're shoving it down our throats that it's God's gift to the gaming community, but gamer's - the actual gamer's out there - seem to disagree in droves. Yes, Kinect has it's qualities for sure and it's amazing technology, but if this gamble doesn't pay off in the long term, they are going to have to serious rebuilding to do afterwards. When the Wii died, Nintendo had/has 3DS and when the PS2 died off and the PS3 wasn't worth buying for years, Sony had the PSP to carry them through. But Microsoft doesn't have this alternative...that's unless they've got something REAL BIG coming up this year that we don't know about!

I'm banking on the latter, because I don't see Kinect as being the new Xbox system like they've claimed it is/will be. I think the quite approach that Microsoft has been using lately is masking something truly spectacular that's up their sleeve for this year, because they've lost way too much lately to be this arrogant - not something Microsoft is usually known for vocally being (e.g. Bungie, Bizarre Creations, Mass Effect, Limbo, etc.).

What do you guys think? I bet you thought I was going all fanboy there at the beginning too, didn't you! Haha

If they truly think Kinect is the future for Xbox, well I may unfortunately have to stop supporting the brand. I'm a big fan of the Xbox brand, 360 in particular, but controller-free or this 'hybrid' gaming with the controller and kinect that they're talking about are both utter garbage. Let me use a regular damn controller for future Halo games, please.

Kinect is the Future on Input technology as a whole.

Watch this Video

http://www.theverge.com/2011/12/21/2652055/kinect-fusion-ligh...

Kinect as a User interface system blows move and M+ out the water. While one may agrue that its not the best for games in the long fun of these Games aren't a Important market but one tooo get Kinect hyped and into the hands of Devs and everyday tech.

For an example the 3D modeling that Josh showed off in the video. Theoretically one could use the sensor to control robots on other sides of the world. This could be a giant step for robotics more so than the simple open close pincer of the wii applications. With a Higher resolution Kinect Camera sensor could scan your hands and allow you to work with more advanced hand like robots.

But yeah for stuff like gaming the Kinect is okay at best.

I'm so sad I missed Bastion for 50% off on the 12 Days of Deals. At least I picked up the last New Vegas DLC I needed for half off today. I might actually get a chance to finish Fallout: NV in the time between when I tire of Skyrim and before I start Kingdom of Amalur.

@shingi I completely agree that Kinect is absolutely amazing technology and Microsoft is doing some incredible things technology minded, but I'm speaking in the realm of what I do: gaming. Both Move and Kinect have the positives and negatives, but to say the Kinect blows Move out of the water is a nearsighted statement. While Kinect can pull your whole body into a game and allow you to play on a horizontal plane, or cube if you will, it's registering of fine movement isn't great. Move on the other hand is wonderful at reading minuscule movements and that's why it translates perfectly into the FPS realms - super fast reaction times and pinpoint accuracy, but Move struggles with full body games that Kinect does so well with. The difference is, Move is much better at giving a gaming experience that appeals to core gamers, where the many limitations of Kinect have staged it as a primarily casual peripheral.

For this last reason is why I think that Microsoft's current hyping up is not centered around Kinect. It doesn't translate into core gaming experiences well and the upcoming big Microsoft titles that use Kinect: Star Wars, Fable, etc. have all been played by the media and have not been received highly at all - especially Star Wars, of which I'm a massive fan. They've got to have something else up their sleeve, because their risking too much with Kinect to place it as a centerfold. Sony's Move is a optional peripheral for those who desire to use it and they can take the risk will little to loose and not to mention that Sony's Vita and the PS3 lineup for 2012 is very big already: All Vita titles, Dust 514, Starhawk, Final Fantasy Versus XIII, The Last Guardian, Sorcery, Twisted Metal, etc.

Microsoft has something up their sleeves! That's my prediction for 2012.
