Microsoft's Kudo Tsunoda claims hardly anyone still plays FPS games on PC

Posted on Tuesday, September 21 2010 @ 18:51:56 CEST by

Sometimes people make the weirdest statements in front of the press, and a recent claim from Microsoft's Kudo Tsunoda in GameInformer is definitely one of the more bizarre I've seen in a while. Tsunoda, who helped develop Kinect, told the magazine that Halo did an awesome job of building a first-person exclusively for the console, and that now hardly anyone plays first person shooters on the PC anymore. It's all about the console, he said.

The Tech Report responds to Tsunoda with some gaming history:
Tsunoda uses that remark as a stepping stone to an equally eyebrow-raising point. In his view, console shooters weren't fun before Halo came along because "everyone was just porting the existing shooters over to console." Developers should consider that when developing games for Kinect, he says. Games must be crafted specifically for the motion-recognition controller to be fun.

Apparently, nobody told Tsunoda about Goldeneye 007, a console-exclusive shooter hit the Nintendo 64 in 1997 and subsequently gained a cult following. Bungie first showed Halo about two years later... at the Macworld Expo, in its original iteration as a Mac and PC game.
