The combined result of those three gave Nintendo the highest amount of sells. So Sony and Microsoft, seeing the dollars fly by to Nintendo, wanted to get in on it. Sony decided a similar way as Nintendo and used that weird sphere thingy, which turned out ok. Microsoft took it to the next level and made the Kinect. Innovative, but not extremely well thought out.
Microsoft’s audience, the casual gamer, wasn’t too keen on this Kinect gaming. Yet in the recent years it took up at least 75% of Microsoft presentation on gaming events. They put too much focus into it, wanting to expand their audience to younger ages and beating Nintendo in motion gaming, while forgetting their old audience of people who just wanted to play their vidya.
The new ideas for the Kinect are ok, and certainly better thought out. But I still will prefer to wait and see.
As for KYM. My love for internet culture is certainly a big reason for my activity here, but ponies was a reason I started here in the first place.
