Kinect to get a gun

Written by Nick Farell


Welcome to America
Word on the street is that the busy Voles at Microsoft are working on building a gun for the Kinect.

Everyone knows that it is written into the US constitution that everyone has to carry a gun in the US.  Otherwise you can be mocked for being a liberal communist who is seeking to undermine all that is decent in the Land of the Free. Now it seems that Microsoft thinks the same thing applies to its games console. After all what Kinects a family more than shooting at things on a screen.

Microsoft has just opened a new studio in Vancouver dedicated to developing projects for "core" gamers. One of the references on the resume of one of the team members indicates that he is working on a "core AAA shooter" for Kinect. It seems that Microsoft wants to work out a way to connect, for want of a better word, with core gamers.

The first goal will be to get the kinect onto the PC, and then with a suitable weapon, the gaming crowd might get interested.

I can't imagine a shooter with Kinect's responsiveness, let alone a core AAA title.

This will be my very first criticism of a Fudzilla story. I encourage making fun of ANY tech company. It's hard enough trying to dispel the misconceptions of ppl in other countries as it is. We are NOT all gun toting conservatives. This comment was as tasteful as me making fun of the silliness of having a King or Queen. And for the record, I see plenty of ppl from merry old England in the Black Ops servers these days, not to mention the thousands I saw in BF2 shooting ppl with glee.

Farrell you idiot. Things are not rosy here.

First off, if you have a criminal record, you can't get a gun. They need better regulations on gun ownership, but not everyone has one.

Second off, alot of people here don't want guns. The image of a shotgun-toting redneck is disturbing to alot of us.

What I have a problem with, however, is that police and government have access to better weapons than we do. Bad enough we live in a police state that incarcerates you for almost anything (google "resisting arrest").

GrumpyOldMan and nECrO are liberal commies, idiots like them love to believe that guns kill people. Then again they probably think the people who defend their freedoms are a bunch of gun toting crazies. I am sure they both side with the crazy "thank god for dead soldiers" "christians".

Lol. How many people are killed by their own guns? I love to see people with guns, because if they don't kill me quick, I sure as hell will kill them.
Peace.
