#XboxReveal round-up: the most amazing, agonising Xbox confe

All these years later I'm still calling BS on Milo.

Kinect can barely tell the difference between me and my dog, yet we're supposed to believe it was picking up the facial expressions of the players and responding to them? It's a video with actors reading their half of the performance. It's about as interactive as the last Pixar movie.
Confirmation Bias is a bad thing, I've read a book that agreed with me about that

These conferences and events seem to take a massive downward slide in quality as the years pass. Coincidence that it corresponds with Microsoft focussing more and more on Kinect at the expense of "core" games?

I remember, I don't know if it was Xbox original or 360, but Microsoft gave the consoles away to celebrities a few months before it was released. It was the biggest and stupidest PR campaign ever, and it worked, we all bought it. But I always find it really cringy for some reason when bands play at console reveals e.g. The Killers or Activision's music-heavy E3 party, Kotick must have money to burn.
