    That's all very well, but if Natal was released 2 years ago it will have been even more expensive.

    The $150 is still only rumoured, there have been other much cheaper prices rumoured too.

    We all know the Natal is going to be very expensive there's no doubt about that, it's microsoft, no way in hell that this thing will be decently priced.

    I agree. But you know what I really hate all those microsoft fanboy's saying that motion sensing on wii is crap and then they get hyped over natal. What hypocrites.

    ......motion sensor on the wii is not that great, I won't say anything for Natal, so far it hasn't interested me much, that and the fact that if I do decide to get one it will be when the price has halved at least. It's definately going to be overpriced.

    Come on Microsoft suprise me!

    Wii's motion sensing is a bit pants when you think about it. As for Natal, it intrigues me. I want to know hell well it can be implemented and at what cost. I'd quick like a gimmicky DVD player which can have some actions performed remote-less.

    If he's saying it will fail, why do you suppose he's the "former" studio manager? [​IMG]

    I doubt any of you stopped to think that he might be implying it's too late. When he asked at what point Microsoft planned on releasing it, they did not give a set date. Having not released it already is part of the problem, it will fail because the console is so far along in it's life cycle that developers aren't going to just stop supporting old control methods for this new thing since they aren't required too. Games are probably going to wind up using partial control methods that still require a game pad. It's too late for this or the PS3 Move, they are far too behind Nintendo to get caught up and give it a year or two before Nintendo puts out a next generation console with more power and an improved motion control system and they will be screwed royally. I can't see Nintendo sitting idly by while Microsoft and Sony try to copy their ideas onto more powerful hardware.
