@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. :)

Either that, or Microsoft is dropping a handheld! But, on another Microsoft subject, me and my Dad were talking about Microsoft — he's in high management in computer engineering for a massive company that subcontracts for the US Navy, of which I work as well) — but I can honestly see Microsoft going neck and neck with NASA in the end. Still producing computers, but becoming more of an inventor than a hardware developer. If that was to happen, many would think Microsoft was going down, but it would actually be a massive step-up the ladder for them. Time will tell. :)

Why wouldn't it be worth it.

Perfect Dark still holds up goes toe to toe with the best of the best of FPSs.

XBLA and XBLIG blow all the other DD services out the water. I would also point out some apps but the members here have spoken on how they feel about consoles doing more than games.

ok. The main reason I ask is one, it's pricey (at least to me who is getting married and getting a Wii U). Another reason is because I figure the next gen system will be out in a couple years.
Perfect Dark is my favorite shooter by far, by the way.

I'd say go for it for the Downloadable games and content alone. (will be most likely transferable to the next xbox)

I'd say go for a used system and Buy a big HardDrive.

game i reccomend

Perfect Dark
The banjo games
Bastion
Super Meat boy
Illomilo
Trenched
Stackling
Splosion man
Comic Jumper
Raskulls
Monday night combat

WAT!

No doubt I'd get the Banjo games. i wish they were still with Nintendo.
Not usually real big in FPS (except for Perfect Dark), but that's what's popular to play with people.

Please note that there are demoes for every downloadable game. I say just download demoes of any game that strikes your fancy and try it out. Hell, every year I spend weeks just playing demoes, and I've found a lot of games that I've liked that way.

In my opinion, Bastion was the best deal out of this whole 12 Days event. I would have picked it up if I didn't already buy it earlier this year. I did pick up Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet and Rock of Ages but that is it. Unfortunately, the deals this year have been seriously lacking especially when compared to last year. :(

Day 11 is Gears of War 3 stuff. I'll pass again. :(

Although, everyone should run right out and purchase the Golden Lancer before Xbox eliminates avatar guns.

Which have been on sale, like, 3 times this year. Most people already bought it. Meanwhile there are a bunch of good games that have never gone on sale, like Guardian Heroes HD.

EDIT: Oh wait, they're not on sale, so I guess your point is that they went on sale this year. Okay then...
