No Real Steel in the NZ/AUS Marketplace – yet another fine example of customers being ignored and avoided, nobody is coming forward to advise why, again. No wonder the information was so hard to come by. I also might have to apologise as there does not appear to be any Kinect, which I still believe is a massively wasted opportunity.
Original post after the break:
On Sunday night I watched Real Steel, you may have read the review I posted and will understand that I enjoyed every minute of the adrenaline fuelled popcorn laden two hours. The formula is simple take a good dose of Rocky mix it up with some Transformers and maybe as dash of Gladiator (boxing movie – not a Russell Crowe movie) and you get a good helping of crowd pleaser.
As I sat enjoying the thrilling finale, watching Hugh Jackman shadow boxing his remote controlled robot through the fight, one exciting prospect crossed my mind. This had to be a game and it really had to be a Kinect game, whether it was good was yet to be seen, but Hell what a fantastic opportunity
Taking my inspiration to Twitter I posted feverishly about the potential for a Real Steel Kinect game and my wonder at it’s absence. Today xbox live’s Major ‘Larry’ Nelson has posted a comment that this week’s XBLA releases will include a Real Steel game. All details are currently dark, but I can only positively summise that my instict proved itself and the game will be Kinect enabled.
Yesterday I was entertainment for people that didn’t get it. [ You know who you are 😉 ]
Today I feel I am vindicated, bring on the World Robot Boxing League – “I’m ready to make some money!”
