Banjo Kazooie and Viva Pinata developer Rare has made some important contributions to the first person shooter genre, a space it hasn't visited since Perfect Dark Zero hit the Xbox 360 in 2005. That may change, thanks to Project Natal.

Rare's Mark Betteridge tells MCV, as part of a feature on the first-person shooter, that the company's "sights are trained on Natal." Betteridge calls the Xbox 360's motion and voice controller a "a great opportunity to break new ground with content and gameplay."

Rare has been said by owner Microsoft to be "intimately involved with Project Natal in a number of different dimensions," according to soon to be ex-Microsoft VP Shane Kim. The developer was reported to be staffing up in anticipation of the Natal launch in 2010. Hopefully, that will help give them the identity that Peter Molyneux thinks they so desperately need.

"[Project Natal is] also an opportunity to exercise some genre evolution," Betteridge says, "so hopefully we'll be able to develop something on that front."

Are you thinking what I'm thinking? If the answer is a first person shooter/boxing game based on the adventures of Killer Instinct's T.J. Combo, than it sounds like we are.

I don't think that the whole natal thing is a good idea >_<
Even if I can imagine walking in game by walking on place in RL, I can't imagine running, aiming and shooting.
I think Wii's controller idea is better because you at least have some feelings (holding wiimote) and a vibration(and some buttons too), so it's easier to imagine controlling the game.
If you want to play FPS "just like in the real life", then go to the shooting range, fucking bastard!

Natal is one of those things I won't even invest in for my 360 because it seems like such a piece of shit idea. You can't really do much more with FPS games these days as it is.

I don't really care about Natal. It's not going to be the Wii killer it claims to be. A year from the Natal launch all the hubbub will probably be about next gen systems. It's too late to the game and not to mention probably pricey.
