Why did nobody told me that such a thing like the Sega Activator existed back in the 90's? I never knew that Sega had something similar (more or less) to the Kinect in those years.

Because we'd rather not feel old by acknowledging people might actually be young enough to not have heard of it. Especially since there's a good chance those people are 20 or a bit over now.

Though I guess maybe you ARE old enough and just didn't follow Sega or games at all then, whichever.

Oh, I see.

Still the videos posted on YouTube of the Activator are pretty fun. So at least we got something out of that thing. :P

Or it could've been like many other peripherals from that era in that they were too gimmicky, obscure, and expensive at the time to care. I mean, who here remembers the NES's Keyboard peripheral?

I had a Power Glove.  It was so bad.

No, I don't mean that in a good way ;)

What does Microsoft have to say about Sony's Xbox One "shifting message" dig? -- Source: Eurogamer
A couple of choice quotes.....

Quote
Spencer explained his position: "We built a platform for gamers. ..."
Which is why the XBone was so well received...

Quote
"“Now, we have a vision, and we've stayed on that vision around the digital ecosystem we want to put on Xbox Live,” he said.
And if I had any interest in the XBone at any point due to their reversals (which I didn't), this would probably kill it.

I, thankfully, stuck to the Zapper.

My favorite response to that bit in the comments was "Yeah, but that was 8 years ago."

Titanfall or whatever looks fucking amazing. That blows away any Sony exclusive so far, I'd say.

Alright, show of hands. Who here didn't expect this?

They're at least still ahead of their own game from May, for what little that's worth.
