Microsoft reveals Kinect for Windows v2 design, getting 'closer and closer' to launch - http://www.polygon.com/2014/3/28/5556450/microsoft-reveals-kinect-for-windows-v2-design-getting-closer-and

Microsoft is getting "closer and closer" to launching the Kinect for Windows v2, according to a post on the official Kinect for Windows Blog, which offers a first look at the new hardware and its components.

The sensor's design is similar to that of the Kinect for Xbox One. It sports a "Kinect" on the top panel and a conservative power indicator replacing the console's Xbox Nexus branding.

You don't spend $2 Billion on a relatively untested product in the marketplace unless you have VR plans yourself.

Maybe Snow Crash will finally come true. Who knows?

Well, looks like Mozilla wants me to continue not using Firefox. I mostly use Chrome or Chromium anyway.

What is really setting me off is how fanboys are vilifying Blizzard for having said nothing of Diablo 3 on Xbox One until today when all that was known until now was a PS4 version coming out. So you have Xbox fanboys basically calling Blizzard a "whore" as part of their inane flaccid fury over it.

I mean, seriously, Diablo 3? That game came out on computers over a year ago. You can play it on either a Windows PC or a Mac. It's a Blizzard game so it can run on a mid-range spec machine just fine. It's also. . . Diablo 3. It's not like Titanfall where there was a version being developed for PS4 that Microsoft moneyhatted EA to get console exclusivity on despite Respawn not really wanting that. IT'S. DIABLO. 3. WHICH IS ALSO ON LAST-GEN SYSTEMS.

Why this current gen console fanboy wars are the most embarrassing fanboy wars:

1: Discussions of moneyhatting are not getting into the moral implications of money hatting. Which is the consumers lose out on money hatting when it comes to getting content on a system.
Like with fucking Titanfall's Xbox One exclusivity or Destiny's DLC timed exclusiveness on PS4. No, no. We're just going to vilify the developers for moneyhats, the wrong targets.

2: Specs. Fucking. . . specs. Both of the current gen consoles use standard x86 architecture. So it's really like arguing who built the better standardized PC. To be honest, I don't think it really matters if Xbox One can do 1080p easily or not compared to PS4. It should come down to the content on the Xbox One and PS4.

3: Giving bad reviews to games you haven't played on Metacritic. That should explain a lot about what the hell is going on.

You see, back in my day when you were choosing a game system because it may be the only one you got, you didn't choose the game system based on specs and moneyhats, and there wasn't a metacritic to heap your idiocy onto. You got it based on the games you wanted to play. SEGA was more about the arcade ports, and even their games for the system exclusively, aside from RPGs though Sword of Vermillion was kind of arcadey, played like arcade games. Nintendo opted to go a more cerebral route with its content after it's original series of arcade ports or games that started out like arcade games after the first year of its life span.

If you wanted to bring the arcade experience home with you, because that was the fucking standard to live up to back then, you tended to go with SEGA. If you wanted games like Super Mario Bros. 3 which were platformers, but ones you sat down with for a few hours, you went with Nintendo. There was an actual reason to have a system preference.

You could even make the argument that Microsoft is going a nouveau arcade route with its focus on online gaming compared to Sony's more cerebral content. BUT, YOU AREN'T. All you're arguing about is whose foot size is bigger as far as specs go, 1080p, and moneyhats. That is rather fucking pathetic, and is playing out like a round of Rose and Camellia. It doesn't matter how hard you're slapping, you're still in a slapping fight that was made to be ridiculous.
