Epic Games gets private Milo demoing – my hope is reignited

1 min read

A few days ago, Lionhead’s Peter Molyneux paid Epic Games a visit with Milo in tow. Apparently guest presentations to the staff of Epic are a regular thing and this time they were all treated to a live demo of Milo – Molyneux’s Kinect project.

The game was originally showed off at E3 2009 but it is still unclear as to whether or not Milo will ever see the light of day. A few weeks after Molyneux demoed the game at a TED conference this year, it was reported that the project had been cancelled. Since then there’s been no news, until this private showing at Epic.

Cliffy B was present at the showing and his Twitter feed sent out a bunch of comments about what he saw: “Oh shit Milo just curb stomped a snail!” To rub it in even more he later tweeted: “After seeing Milo in person and hearing the pitch (AND if it is allowed to fully shine) it could be like Heavy Rain and Pixar had a baby.”

So does this mean that Project Milo (or is it still called Milo and Kate?) is back on? I really, really hope so because it was pretty much the only thing that got me excited about Kinect. Bleszinski’s later tweets don’t exactly make me feel any happier though: “And no, I do not know the status of the Milo. We did not discuss that”.

    I think epic working on kinect is a very good idea, and will definitely be the only reason i might by kinect. I lol at microsoft, they spend 500 million dollars on marketing kinect, which they expect to 3 million, when move with modest marketing has sold 1 million in the US http://ps3.ign.com/articles/112/1129631c.html#comments_top?p=2&s=ASC
    and 1.5 million in europe not including japan!
    Japan only got move yesterday!

    i dunno i keep thinking there’s no way kinect can fail, but in EMEAA and japan i think kinect has got alot of problems.
    Alot of people ive spoken to think kinect is a stand alone unit! when the figure out why kinect has an auxillary cable im gonna lol!

    Theres no way people are gonna bye Kinect R3200 for a device that has a very similar to an eyetoy. i don’t think europe/africa is gonna fall for that.
    Whats gonna happen is microsft is gonna market like mad!
    When the consumer goes to the shop the gonna see wii for R2499 move for R699, playstation eye for R350 or kinect for R3200 with xbox, or R1900, the consumer will ask for the cheapest or the best, since most workers will not have played kinect or its a bit too higher grade for them to set up the are gonna definately recommend move over kinect anyday!

    in america it is totally kinect!
    i expect to see 2 million sales first month or more!
    and it will sell well in the future but in the us only i think

    Keep in mind that the kinect bundle for Xbox for 3200 is not upgradable so i doubt any hardcore person would want that ideally.

    WRONG: The PS3 camera is called the PlayStation Eye.

    WRONG: Kinnect is only similar to PS Eye in the way that Kinnect also has a normal lens. PS Eye has a single, normal, webcam type of lens. Kinnect has an infrared sensor, and is capable of 3D depth perception. It also has 4 mics capable of helping find where a person is and noise cancelation so it can still hear you when you have your movie booming.

    WRONG: Kinnect setup is challenging Have you seen how Kinnect sets up? You put it on top of or below the TV, plug it into the Xbox’s rear USB port, and if you have an older Xbox, plug the power cord into it. Then pose in a few positions in front of it. Then it knows you well enough to even log you in by looking at your face. ALL of that information is EASILY findable on the Xbox itself, or online.

    WRONG: The Kinect bundle is not upgradable. Every Xbox is upgradable. You can easily put a new hard drive on ANY Xbox system.

    Keep in mind that if someone throws shit at the Move, or even the Wii, I will still defend with facts. Fanboy information isn’t worth anything.


    RIGHT: Kinnect IS a good idea. I will expand upon that: I think (that means it’s my opinion) the technology is amazing. What you can do with it beyond games literally gives you the Minority Report type of control over your system.

    SILLY GAMER GIRL: Luna the XBox kinect bundle is not upgradeable

    you can add storage by adding USB sticks but no upgrade options have been mentioned so it will be a good 6-12 months before you can upgrade or when ms says so

    SILLY GAMER GIRL= all that tech has no added value its still does what an eyetoy does with better tracking oms! what can kinect do that eyetoy can’t

    SILLY GAMER GIRL= to help you out in life http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EyeToy
    im perfectly justified calling a playstation eye an eyetoy

    In the link you provided about the Xbox, it clearly says:

    Greenberg told us that this 4GB unit “absolutely does have that expansion bay that we have the opportunity to use in the future.”

    That means it’s upgradable, if you didn’t realize that yourself.

    Wikipedia is not the most accurate place in the world. But still, the very first thing it says at that link is:

    “For the PlayStation 3 version of the EyeToy, see PlayStation Eye.”

    I’m ready for the next thing to prove you wrong on. :cheerful:

    So if i buy the Xbox 4gb unit next month, and i want to play forza 3, which has a 16gb install to access the whole game, i cannot use a usb flash stick to keep game data, and there is no standalone hard drives anywhere in sight? but in the future there will be???
    so i must wait how many months before i can play the game?

    How are you right?
    how can i upgrade my xbox in december,january,february march?

    see you are a bleedy sheep, all you see is facts but you cannot interpret what the mean. hence you are a casual sheep!

    eyetoy=Playstation eye same difference!
    obsessing over useless facts plz stop saying annoying things your embarrasing gamer girls everywhere.

    luna seriously stop this nonsense, and trying to derail comments this is your last warning

    You CAN buy a new HDD for the Xbox S already. It’s outragously priced, but you can buy it.

    Casual sheep? Only you would think of that as an insult. A gamer is still a gamer.

    But casual? Heh, yeah… I have 4 consoles hooked up to my HDTV right now… I bet you don’t even have that many.

    Could not agree more! Well done Luna! I have Wii, PS3 and Xbox 360. I have no preference over the other (As Mario Galaxy was one of my favourite games, so I include the Wii). I must say on this forum are the biggest and most sensitive PS3 fans that seem to want to slate the Xbox and Kinect. But at the end of the day what are they proving? Every console has something to offer (not only exclusives). But I really enjoyed how you actually backup your arguments with facts instead of just saying “Oh this console is kak because I say so and I cant afford to have 2 consoles so I will slate the one I could not get. Oh I is the smartest in da Wurld”. Not to say the guys slating the Xbox or PS3 don’t have both, but you generally find that if they don’t, they tend to fanbois! My fingers hurt now!

    oh gawd someone should just impregnate you so you can be preoccupied permanently.

    Ppl who agree with you just want any opportunity to get you in the sack, if you think im wrong about that then your very naive

    for the record i have 2 ps3s, 1 gaming pc gts 250, and 1 xbox 360 and a psp, for me that is actually way too much, and it shoes if you really were a serious gamer, you would of mentioned what games you play, not how much money your boyfriend has

    lans, as soon as you started acting sexist, then you turned from a little idiot to a complete asshole.

    Ok, to give you some idea I know what I’m talking about. My consoles owned:

    Sega: Genesis, Game Gear, Saturn, Dreamcast, SegaCD
    Nintendo: GBA, DS Lite, Virtual Boy, GameCube
    Microsoft: Xbox, Xbox 360
    Sony: PS1, PS2, PS3, PSP
    Atari: 2600
    PC: AMD Phenom X4 quad core processor, 4gb RAM, just under 1TB storage, wide screen monitor, geForce GT 220 1gb DDR3, built by me (without any help from a big strong man! oooo!)

    Games currently being played:

    Xbox: Split/Second, Borderlands: NRR, Red Dead Redemption
    PSP: Lunar:SSH, Daxter, GTA:VCS
    PS3: PAIN’s new Alpine area, Sonic 4 ep 1, ModNation Racers
    PC: Left 4 Dead 2, Tales of Monkey Island, Dead Rising 2 (none of it pirated)
    DS: Nothing at the moment

    Good enough for you, you sexist little slow minded brain-slug? And what are you playing? Farmville?

    When you meet a women/girl who’s sees the way you treat her, she will tear your nuts off and feed them to you like a Rocky Mountain Oyster. I’ve never in my life met anyone at all who is so immature, stuck on themselves, and outright dim as you.

    Bobby, you may agree with him for some reason (everyone’s allowed an opinion), but you’re not being rude, self centered, and sexist about it. There is a BIG difference between the two of you.

    BTW, lans … Learn what an opinion is, and that forcing yours on people is no better then forcing your religion or political views on people. You’re an extremist who thinks he knows what he’s doing, but is simply too stupid to see it. You’re very dangerous because you think you actually know what you’re talking about. VERY few people are ok with the sexist attitude you have.

    Now, I’m going out for my Friday night, so you stay home in your parent’s basement looking for pictures of naked girls on the “interwebs” (as you call it) and come back when you’ve learned even the smallest amount of maturity.

    lans, I’ll never let you “win” because I see that’s what you’re trying to do. I’m not all upset and whiney, and the only thing that upsets me about you is your being sexist. That’s a pathetic dated attitude that you only will not exploit because I’m telling you that I know you’ll do it because I said that.

    The only real thing I have to say is that every time I prove you wrong, you ignore it and change the subject to something else I can 1up you on. I prove I’m not a “casual” gamer, and you say you don’t read it. You say you’re trying to get me all pissed off, but it’s obvious you’re the one that’s all, “boo hoo where’s my mommy?!” I still don’t know what you warned me about. That you’re going to continue to provide laugh after laugh? I enjoy making you squirm, and you’re too dim to even understand. heh But you’re a boy, and you have to swing your dick around and see if you hit anything, but it’s just too small…. :devil:

    *Bobby Kotick for Dummies provide some match commentary*

    lans is like that annoying end level boss, that’s glitched. There’s actually no way to beat him (even with a cheat code).

    You see, you slowly grind on him for a few hours (you cast your most awesome spells or dick insults, while you pop a few health pots), hoping to score the critical hit, but then you discover that all this time, his health bar has been stuck at 2%, because lans has transcended as all. It’s at that moment that you run out of health pots.

    That’s when Ians unleashes his super attack, depletes your health bar and sanity metre with an atrocious attack on your sanity and the game is over.

    *munches on some popcorn*

    I think personal insults are a bit overdone on the internet, and I try to play it as clean as possible (even when Steve and Aussious insult my manhood… sniff… even if it hurts my pretty butterfly soul 🙁 ), but there’s no real reason to be insulted, since everyone is really portraying a persona. We’re nowhere as stupid or as smart as we like to portray ourself.

    lans is actually a pretty cool moustached kid with comic books. Steve is an obese black African lady with 10 kids, Nick is actually a homeless guy who lives under a tree, Geoff is not really Chinese but rather a Mossad spy who has undergone plastic surgery, and is trying to figure out if Fox1 is really Indian and not Arab, easy is really a computer AI (every once in a while he crashes himself into an infinite logic loop), Aussious is really Aussious and Gavin is really a girl with daddy issues, who we’d all like to sleep with. :happy:

You come on here ridiculing people yet you demand to be respected, what kind of needy girl are you, with the amount of harware you have im suprised you even on this blog so much, Luna i really think dishonesty is a very unappealing aspect in a so called ‘woman’.

    FPS’s and Racers are barely hardcore, especailly Halo and COD. I’d be more impressed if you named games like Demon Souls, God of War, JRPGS, Alan Wake, ect.


  42. lans

    October 24, 2010 at 14:54

    oh please steve i play tons of games, im just gonna list the ones i play the most and feel are the most hardcore, from a gameplay,learning curve and skill perspective

    i buy every ps3 exclusive that comes, but those games are for me, not for boasting or anything
    sure i own and play uncharted 1,2 heavenly sword, warhawk,MGS4, Gears, god of war 3, ff13, motorstorm, but if i am with my friends and im gaming publicly i play completely different games which require much higher skills and cognitive abilities
    COD MW1
    COD MW2
    Diablo 2
    et etc steve, im not gonna list single player games coz thats my own taste, those games skills and gameplay are not neccessary hardcore, sure those games you have mentioned have high production values.

    but apart from demon souls which i actually bought and sold in less than a week, those games are arguably not hardcore depends on your taste!

    Demon souls was not rewarding enough for me, and i dont have time to 1000 of times for no reason, the knights with red eyes annoyed me the most! i suppose i could play demon souls co-op and when the world is in light tendency, but that game is beyond me, and truly is hardcore, i fought a boss where i actually bought or it seemed like it thousands of arrows i had to hide in a corner and shoot that flying phantom thingy, after i fought that boss i sold the game. Mad respect for demon souls XD


  43. lans

    October 24, 2010 at 15:59

    remember steve there are hardcore titles and there’s also AAA titles. Uncharted is AAA, but not hardcore, Gears is AAA and Hardcore.
    Halo is AAA and Hardcore
    Alan wake is AAA but not hardcore!
