    Good to see that they're spending so much time developing Natal.

    Wonder how much the system itself will cost and the games that come after it. [​IMG]

    It should be cheaper now that they're using 360 hardware for it instead of packing it with its own.

    Still haven't seen anything I'd want to play with it though, most games I've heard of using it I would prefer to play with controllers anyway and others sound like Wii ports or are just impressive to look at but not really something I wanna play.

    Maybe but saying that how well did their casual games do?

    From what I've read around the nets, it seems that most 360 gamers don't really have much interest in it.

    Sounds fun but I'm sure it'll get ho-hum just like the Wii did.

    All it's made from is like a cheap webcam. $150 for software?

    What is good about the device compared to what the Wii & PS3 offers/will offer is that you will only need one for multiplayer. The custom processor is out and will instead use a 360 processor instead.

    As interesting as the tech aspect of it is, until they make a good game for it that isn't Natal Sports or some mini game bullshit, I ain't interested.

    One of the things that bothers me about this kind of tech is simple: How the fuck do we move around, if we're confined to a small room/space? Also, this season or December of 2010?
    The only thing I want it for are stuff like fable with Natal. That looks awesome.

    This would be the greatest advancement in video gaming if two things happened: 1) they released it with projection glasses, that you could put on and actually get "into" the game and 2) a huge third-party like Square-Enix worked for years on an exclusive Final Fantasy-style game.

    Both statements are unlikely, so meh. It's just a glorified Wii.

    This is a project destined to fail like the Nintendo Power Glove.

    Don't really have much interest in this yet. Microsoft will need a very good title to launch and demonstrate the capabilities of this tech. Just like Nintendo did with Wii Sports.

    Project Natal looks interesting from a technical side of things. The problem is, most consumers won't 'purchase' this.

    The Wii did 'motion control' okay, because that was the entire focus of the system. This is merely an add-on.

    isn't it like ''i wanna swing around my thing - i'm gonna play wii'' and '' i want the good old controls and a good included all around multimedia/ game machine - im gonna play xbox 360''
    it's obvious that microsoft want a bit of nintendo's cake, but the question is whether the gamers wanna go i this destination, since a lot of sony or mic disciples aren't opened, rather conservative in the matter of innovative concepts.
    good luck macrosofti [​IMG]

    I'm not a fan of motion,but I will buy it and use it randomly like the Wii,except I play the Wii often on games that don't require much motion.

    i am sure more gamers out there are not so much interested in motion controls. it is kinda annoying i think. i prefer the wiimote for shooting games only. more than that i prefer a game pad.
