    I don't plan to purchase either, because I don't have any of those systems.

    So...the people interested in buying Natal are most looking forward to shooters...the games that would be the worst to play with Natal.

    Not touching neither the games will all be shovelware and fail. I'll use the money for the PSP2 and CTR (3ds actual name).

    This.

    Judging by the general reception here, I won't say it surprises me.

    Shows that the Move will pretty much be a copycat of the wii remote.

    Seriously, though. The Move is a ripoff of the Wiimote, and the Natal probably isn't much better than the EyeToy.

    buying a PS3 won't be buying Move.
    I have a Wii and don't play it already no point in getting a worse version

    Actually, it might still work out one way or another. You shoot with, let's say, both of your hands behind eachother, like you're holding the gun. Then again, that might not be really accurate to shoot with, you would probably miss nearly everything.

    How would you move?

    That is the Natal/Waves flaw. It looks far more advance than Wiimote/Move/Eyetoy (if the demos at last years E3 are to be believed) but if the main genre that sells is none on rail shooters then I'd doubt it'll do that well.

    If Natal got a G Gundam game, I would personally buy an Xbox and Natal, just to play it.

    ...this hand of mine glows with an awesome power?
    I'm afraid you'd get caught up in the moment and be left with a broken TV in the end.

    It's actually a completely awesome game idea. Someone needs to go e-mail Bandai, now.

    Microsoft copied Sony with natal and Sony copied Nintendo with the move, now what did Nintendo copy Microsoft with...... Oh yeah, Nintendo actually have their own ideas, I forgot.

    Sony copied Sega with Eyetoy though to me Natal is a lot more than just a rip off of the Eyetoy.

    Don't quote me on this, but I've read somewhere that some time back (before Wii's development), Microsoft made an attempt with something like the Wiimote, but left it on the wayside because they felt it wouldn't go very far. If that were the case, then at least Nintendo had ideas for the technology rather than just having it and expecting it to sell on its own.
