Xbox Is Not A Gaming Console

In what could possibly be the easiest interview he's ever had to give, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has taken the time to tell USA Today's Maria Bartiromo that his company is basically great and the Xbox 360 isn't a games console.
Ballmer tells the fragrant Ms Bartiromo that "Xbox isn't a gaming console. Xbox is a family entertainment center. It's a place to socialize. It's a place to watch TV. We have Hulu coming. It's the only system where you are the controller. Your voice, your gestures, your body."

He doesn't stop there though. Under the kind of close questioning usually delivered by a cute kitten wearing a bunny outfit, Ballmer states that, "I think about my own family. My wife used to say, 'No, no, that's the machine the boys use', and now she says, 'Yeah, I want to go watch movies. Let's go play the dance game.'"

There you go, Steve Ballmer's wife likes Xbox 360 with Kinect.

What is the matter with Steve Ballmer? Surely this will discourage some hard core gamers ever to buy a Xbox 360 when they're familiarised with 15 years old girl. I guess, hard core gamers don't like to be forced out of the couch either.
