Kinect, Name, love it or hate it?
Would be nice if there was an option that was "I don't care" without all the "I was never gonna buy it anyways".
I haven't decided what I think about the actual product yet but, like most electronics, I couldn't care less what they name it.
Dumb name. I get it, but it isn't clever. It has too many sharp consonants so it doesn't roll off the tongue, and people who don't get that it's the Greek prefix kine (meaning movement) portmanteau-ed with connect will just think it's a dumb ass way to spell connect.
However, what's in a name? It's all about the games. It's going to take some serious awesome to win me over though, I'm burned out on motion controls now.
I picked C, but basically I am with the GB guys on this one. It isn't the best name ever... but it gets the job done. Natal wasn't a bad name because it was random. I'm sure they did enough market research to have a good idea what type of name to choose.
I just like the name Natal much better personally. I understand the "meaning" behind Kinect, but Natal just sounds infinitely more interesting.
But I'm not buying it anyway. I can't think of a time where I ever bought a peripheral, especially at the price I've been hearing about.
