Xbox Video Chat Includes Camera, Remote Vibration

simoniker posted more than 10 years ago | from the rez-meme-ahoy dept.

XBox (Games) 31

Thanks to Game Science for its post discussing the Japanese announcement of the Xbox Video Chat hardware/software bundle, which includes "camera, 12 months of Xbox Live service, chat disc and Live Starter Kit." Although the product is "being developed mainly in Japan", a release date in the West is likely, if currently unknown. However, with features including "up to 5 people video conferencing simultaneously... participation can be restricted to invite only... send vibrations to participants' controllers", the staid Brits at Eurogamer are naturally horrified: "Given the remote-rumble function and the fact the Xbox audience is 'adult'; well, our minds are boggling, frankly."

GNAA BEGINS SALE OF DECAPITATION INSURANCE (-1, Troll)

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#9474983)

GNAA BEGINS SALE OF DECAPITATION INSURANCE
Zeikfried - Reuters, Saudi Arabia
The brutal slayings of Paul Johnson and the young Jew Nick Berg only serve to exemplify that, while so-called moderates preach Islam as a religion of peace, normal god-fearing citizens are not blind to the brutal truth, Islam wants to lop off your shit liberally.
"But these poor bastards were working abroad" you cry, your several chins flailing wildly as a mixture of spittle and congealed fat sprays from your blackened lips like a gaijin Tubgirl. But you couldn't be more wrong, Gay Nigger studies indicate the muslims are, in fact, stealing your land, woman, and anal virginity before your very eyes. The situation is indeed dire, as indicated by a recent #GNAA straw poll showing that your average Joe Negro is a mere 58 metres away from a filthy sand nigger, ready willing and able to decapitate you and encode your fate into a shitty .wmv
How may we counter this? How can we protect our terrified brothers, sisters, and lovers from this reprehensible neck decimating towelhead menace? The answer is simple you wretched cretins, as of the 19th of June, award winning self-help group the Gay Nigger Association of America begins the sale of Decapitation Insurance to all American and British citizens and expatriates not willing to contribute to Wil Wheatons latest marathon masturbation session.
But rather than provide this service to the select few, the GNAA understands that your menial jobs are now being performed for one tenth of the cost by an equally skilled Indian, so we have provided a range of contracts scaled to suit your needs.

For just $50 per month: Captured by Islamists? About to utterly fail it at life? Worry no more, for with our GNAA patented tracking device (inserted anally - replaced once a fortnight) you can call for assistance with a stealthy squeeze of the buttocks. In the unlikely event that this takes longer than anticipated our probe is programmed to gently stimulate your prostate to prevent unnecessary panic.

For just $75 per month: Sadly our response teams are often distracted by widespread sodomy and the dulcet tones of Emerson Lake and Palmer, and as a result may not be able to save you from the junktouch of death. But fear not, for an extra 25 dollars a month we will throw in a made-to-measure GNAA sponsored cast-iron neckbrace, proven to stop a round from a Kalashnikov at 20 paces. Also, feel free to laugh majestically as their cries of "ALLAHU AKBAR!" are drowned out by the in-built speaker system, designed to pump out 140 decibels of "I am a Viking" by renowned pie-huffing Swedish guitar rapist Yngwie J Malmsteen.

For Just $100 per month: Round-the-clock protection for you and your friends and family can be yours. Your potential executioners will quake in fear of our GNAA dogs of war, fresh from their victories over 4chan, efnet #politics, and gaiaonline, as they shield your prone jugular with their very lives and dongs. The service is second to none, and each contract is hand signed by GNAA president Timecop himself. The first 500 will also recieve a free jar of holy nigger seed, eagerly provided by GNAA GAMES chairman Zeikfried Tuvai.

But don't just take our word for it, GNAA sponsored clairvoyant Madame Jank DuTouche has contacted Paul Johnsons head from beyond the ethereal veil of death to bring you this recommendation:
"The moons axis over Jupiter brings it into allignment with the constellation Orion and the Planet Anus. After inhaling several ounces of crack, I followed this up with my tarot reading of 'The Jester', 'Death', 'Captain B Dick', '4 swords' and a 'double headed anal dildo'. This told me but one thing, Paul Johnson endorses the Gay Nigger Association of Americas drive for a gay and Decapitation free universe."
So what the fuck are you imbeciles waiting for, sign up with GNAA Insurance today, or be Nick Berg'd into an unpatriotic due grave!

Please stop experimenting with your sexuality, its freaking us out.

Re:Dear Japan. (2, Insightful)

whathappenedtomonday (581634) | more than 10 years ago | (#9475223)

wouldn't want to feed a troll, but this is kinda fundamental: this has nothing whatsoever to do with the japanese, but with people in general. works like spam: it's only there because there's a market / audience / recipient / customer for it. (would spam be dead if noone ever ordered one of those advertized penis enlargement products / "endurance pills" / mortgage solutions / whatever?)

Re:Dear Japan. (2)

Photar (5491) | more than 10 years ago | (#9476569)

Stories like this are fundamentally Japanese. Its just like all the strange stuff that seems to uniquely come from Florida.

Cybersex with combo moves...gawd...

Re:This won't end well (1, Funny)

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#9475947)

Yeah, but if you're playing Mortal Cumbat just don't do the humiliation move at the end when you "Finish Her!!"

Re:This won't end well (2, Insightful)

Impotent_Emperor (681409) | more than 10 years ago | (#9476051)

Well, it's not that weird if you consider that normal sex should already have combo moves such as combining a pelvic thrust with a nipple pinch.

Now I can buy girls a year to xbox live. (4, Insightful)

schild (713993) | more than 10 years ago | (#9475231)

We make jokes, but truth be told, Sex Sells. There's no two ways about it. For every 5 ubergeeks on slashdot that make fun of this, there are five girls or erhm...guys getting off in japan that don't care what lewd subtle jokes you may be making.

The video conferencing thing with people over xbox live is nice, though I worry it may be absolutely shitty quality. What is that? Four other people on the screen at once, in live video from four different places? That's a lot of throughput, unless the rez is like 60x40.

Re:Now I can buy girls a year to xbox live. (3, Informative)

MC Negro (780194) | more than 10 years ago | (#9475412)

Very true that sex sells, but will it sell the Xbox/components? I'm skeptical. Microsoft has tried these shenanigans before [wired.com] without much success [the-magicbox.com] .

how long... (0, Offtopic)

boisepunk (764513) | more than 10 years ago | (#9475282)

How long until this runs on linux [sf.net] ?

Re:how long... (1)

0x0d0a (568518) | more than 10 years ago | (#9477358)

It should already do so.

There are force-feedback-supporting USB HID adapters for just about every force-feedback console joystick out there (I would assume the XBox controller is included).

Linux supports force feedback on HID devices.

Re:how long... (1)

g-san (93038) | more than 10 years ago | (#9482217)

yeah but if you run this you have to remove your xbox linux cause XBox live and xbox linux are incompatty [xbox-linux.org] .

I know for sure (4, Funny)

wheresdrew (735202) | more than 10 years ago | (#9475612)

the "shake" feature will get removed if this sees a US launch.

(Though I wonder how the ESRB would handle rating this with the "shake" mode included....)

Frobnicator (565869) | more than 10 years ago | (#9478140)

(Though I wonder how the ESRB would handle rating this with the "shake" mode included....)
Simple, the same way they handle other games.

They'll put that the game is rated 'E', since video conferencing doesn't seem to meet any of the ratings elements, and keep the little warning that says "Game Experience May Change During Online Play"

Killer App for the X-box (1)

DrWho520 (655973) | more than 10 years ago | (#9475615)

Forget Ninja Gaiden, forget Fable, forget Star Wars: Kinghts of the Old Republic, forget Halo. THIS is the killer app for the X-box.

Couple this with the new Playboy game coming out and people really will never leave their houses ever again.

nick_davison (217681) | more than 10 years ago | (#9478114)

Haven't they been installing X-Box Live centers for the US Army to stay in touch with friends back home? What could be more beautiful than the thought of forty or fifty of our brave warriors all sitting in a room together, using the vibrate function with their partners back home?

The Army That Plays Together, Stays Together

Ew.

Size matters... (to all the pervs out there) (1)

JackAsh (80274) | more than 10 years ago | (#9478215)

Why do I get the feeling, that the original, huge [penny-arcade.com] Xbox controllers are going to be in really high demand?

-Jack Ash

PS: Note that they very tactfully display the camera with the smaller controller-s...

Should've thought of this sooner... (1)

Nintendo would've made trillions more then what this'll make for MS if they had this for the 3 way orgy N64 controllers

Power Glove for Xbox (1)
