Tuesday, 22nd January 2013 18:53 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Microsoft has filed a trademark application with the USPTO for something called Gunpowder. Other than the description “entertainment services, namely, providing online video games,” there is nothing else regarding the project available to deduce what it could entail. It was filed on January 15. Via Gamespot.

    Maybe they’ll start charging for the bullets in online games taking micro transaction to a new low :D XBOX LIVE Platinum sub anyone?

    You get one mag per spawn, after that it’s 5 dollars.

    i like your ideas, but they dont go far enough for me.

    how about legal cheating?

    i dont mean that pseudo get-ahead packages for BF.
    i mean legal wallhacks on your xbox 360 or unlimited magazines.
    now that would get them some real money

    Sounds like a game streaming service to me.

    It’s a downloadable title that is similar to Duck Hunt but ” with the power of Kinect ”

    Yeah, I think you may have called it.

    I’m actually scared about Kinect 2 and privacy issues…

    I think that’s why the media has been trying to turn us all into whores, so when we have cameras always on in our homes, we just won’t give a fuck! :/

    @ Monkeygourmet you do know kinect records your activity even when not in use and sends it back to Microsoft for so called data collecting purposes to help them figure out how to advertise to you better so they claim.

    Anybody with half a brain should know by now to always unplug your kinect and cover it up when not in use. Or just don’t buy/use the thing period. How Microsoft pulled that one over on the consumers I have no idea….oh yea I do 90% of the world are fucking retards.

    But I gotta say I love the mental image of a brigade of grotty old men sat in a basement of Redmond poking through kinect live feeds to see what juicy things they can see.

    Although this Gunpowder sounds like cloud gaming to me but may also turn into some marketing shite along the lines of a ‘Revolution’ in gaming. But thats probably why I’m not in marketing. Anyhoo, back to work.
