Microsoft Believes That Nobody Plays FPS On PC Anymore

While defending Kinect's applicability for First Person Shooter games, Microsoft's Kudo Tsunoda made a bold claim that "hardly anyone" plays such games on the PC today.

"Halo did an awesome job of building a first-person shooter exclusively for the console, and now hardly anyone plays first-person shooters on the PC anymore," were Tsunoda's own words.

Tsunoda then explained that "if you think about the way that first-person shooters evolved, they started on the PC. People for the longest time tried to port shooters from the PC onto the console. And people said the same things that they are saying now about Kinect - 'It's never going to be responsive enough to do this,' or 'You're never going to get a fun first person shooter on the console' - it's only made for a keyboard and mouse and that is the way it is supposed to be played.'"

"And as long as everyone was just porting the existing shooters over to console, they weren't as fun as the PC ones. Of course, they were built for the PC."
