Anything important come out with the PS3 launch?
I kind of remember it being a ghost town for titles on the PS3 durring the first year.
Just for those keeping track, here are the launch titles of Kinect, with Hardcore titles in bold.
* Kinect Adventures (Microsoft Game Studios)
* Kinectimals (Frontier Studio/Microsoft Game Studios)
* Kinect Joy Ride (Big Park/Microsoft Game Studios)
* Kinect Sports (Rare/Microsoft Game Studios)
* Dance Central (MTV Games)
* Your Shape: Fitness Evolved (Ubisoft)
* EA Sports Active 2 (EA)
* Deca Sports Freedom (Hudson)
* Dance Masters (Konami)
* Adrenalin Misfits (Konami)
* Zumba Fitness (Majesco)

Tony Hawk’s Project 8 Neversoft Activision

So, do you have it both ways, or are you really claiming that Kinectimals/Kinect sports, Joyride, Dance Central and the Kinect Sonic Game really are better than Resistance Fall Of Man, Motorstorm, etc?
Note: I'm not saying that the PS3 had a good launch, it was weak, but there were still games, and playable ones that are still fun. My main point is just that Kinect really has a weak launch with not one game really worth playing, if we were to use the same standards applied to the PS3 launch. The very standards that this board has held for a long time, but standards that disappeared very recently with the advent of Kinect. Convenient, no?

Oh, and Resistance was available at PS3 launch and was a good game, with high review scores and good sales, that looks to be quite a bit better than any Kinect title, if you really want to make comparisons between console launches and peripheral launches. And before you yell at me for being unfair -- you're the one who made the comparison first.
Therefore, your analogy fails and backfires. No one's saying Kinect games will always be as meh as these launch games; presumably on the axis of casual shit they can and will get better. What we ARE saying (and are right in saying) is that until there is some proof that at least a couple of actual good hardcore games come out for Kinect, it is total speculation/wishful thinking to say that Kinect is "for all gamers."

where was the lowered expectations before kinect's launch?
where were the "just have fun with it" and "we don't care about review scores" comments before kinect's launch?
where was the mistating of people's opinions in order to make them seem negati...nevermind, this one wasn't retorical.

You guys can laugh all you want. I will enjoy my kinect and look forward to the hard core stuff comming down the road. Until then you can bash kinect all you want, but when some really kick ass stuff comes out I expect you guys to own up to it. I know they will come. You guys apparently dont feel they will ever come.

Or maybe you forgot? You can't possibly tell me the constant "lowered expectations" talk from you and your cronies doesn't count...it all happened before launch and for the past 6 months at least. In fact, if anything, I saw people like yourself, who after launch actually said it was better than expected. So explain this please.Spoiler:
