Wow that is really terrible.

redd0r4853d ago

What an awful story. It's like getting a "fuck you" for xmas.

EddyD4853d ago

Terrible situation and all but that had me laughing.

Techsmith4853d ago

Maybe Microsoft will improve on technology to accommodate disabled people, would be nice of them.

EddyD4853d ago

Agreed, but i'm not really sure if Kinect could be changed sufficiently for that. As was mentioned, Wii or Move seem like far better alternatives for the disabled.

TabbyBW4853d ago

I feel guilty cause i laughed, lol.

iliimaster4852d ago

horrible buy but i mean the point of the story is kinnect has crazy limitations that they are not marketing they are letting people buy it with commercials of people sitting down having the time of their lives.//. sucks for the person but the xbox and ps3 aree aaaaaaamazing
