    I hope these "challenges" From Natal and Sony's wii rip off help spark a idea in Nintendo.

    Natal is just a cheap webcam with a processor stuck on it. My guess is that it costs like under $50 to make.

    As opposed to all other electronics that only have a 1% or so mark-up...

    Another reason why Xbox is gay, overpriced trash. (Then again they could be talking about the arcade console instead of Natal, still think 360 is wack [​IMG] )

    Oh shit, so it's just a $200 shitty webshit? Are you shitting me?! [​IMG]

    Anyway, now that I've done my ranting, I'm still looking forward to seeing it get released. Hopefully we'll see some PC games use this.

    BTW, it also has a high-quality microphone and some sort of improved voice detection (improved as in better than Windows 7 voice recognition).

    The actual stated price in the development stage was 50$.
    That's a big increase there.
    Anyways XBOX team did not innovate.
    Thay took their idea base from Nintendo.

    I used to hate Xbox more then anything, then i bought one, loved it to pieces and realized how pathetic i was hating on it.

    Eyetoy and natal are completely different, the only similarity is that they are camera based. Natal is actually quite an advanced thing, for consoles.
