"Spencer: Dropping Kinect is not the No.1 Xbox One request."

Ok, it's the number two request. They'll drop it. It's 100 dollar paperweight no one wants or wants to make games for. That won't make the NSA too happy but there's already several million suckers that they can spy on with it.


The thing is, they could be making games that make good use of it. Imagine an FPS where you move forward by jogging in place. Your controller is in the shape of a weapon that kinect reads and calculates the position of the reticle on screen. Moving left, right, up, down is just a tilt of the head. If you kneel to shoot, so does your character in-game. A game that incorporates this kind of thing could be pretty immersive, and burn off those Cheetos and Mountain Dew at the same time.

So you're going to turn your head to turn your avatar, correct? So now your head is angled away from the screen which is awkward. What if you wish to turn farther in the same direction? Turn your head even farther away from the screen, I suppose, and now you can't even see the game.

Immersive? Maybe. Impractical? Most certainly.

"Please log in to your Facebook account to use your Oculus goggles!"

This will end poorly, I suspect.

Palmer Luckey: "I guarantee that you won't need to log into your Facebook account every time you wanna use the Oculus Rift."

Whether or not you choose to take him at his word is up to you, of course.

Jesus. And if this changes, it crashes and burns.
People need to stop thinking it will somehow let Zuckerberg watch you pee.

Know what $2 billion buys you? The right to make changes. Six months from now, Palmer may not be in a position to guarantee anything when it comes to how this gadget gets used.

Now I'm not a chicken little type looking for a sky-proof hat but at the same time, I understand the acquisition dynamics of this scale. The short version: the buyer calls the shots.

Nothing like telling a bunch of guys you're hoping to strike a multimillion dollar deal with that working with them might be "jumping the shark".

Contrary to popular belief, that episode of Happy Days was one of the more popular ones, and the show continued on for six more seasons after that.

What you say is true but (spoiler alert) just because something is popular does not mean it's worth a tinker's damn. Something popular CAN be good, of course (not unlike Minecraft) but much of the time, popular things turn out to be shit.

I've posted this article before on Blues (I think) and it's worth a read if for no other reason than to point out that Gates made mistakes too:

"But in the last 13 years, I bet we've made more money than almost anybody on the planet. And that, frankly, is a great source of pride to me."

Sooo, it's a profit deal!

Losing a beloved dog can be particularly painful. My advice: get a new one asap. There are plenty of pooches in need of a good home.

This can't be the first time a game developer (indie or otherwise) has appeared as a scheduled guest on a network talk show, can it?

I took DTM once when I answered an ad in the paper for "test subjects" at the local University. And it was indeed an experience.
