    "Microsoft's upcoming motion controlled Project Natal is controller-free. When the system was first showed at last year's E3, it was assumed that Project Natal will involve flailing. It will, and it does."



    "Lots and lots of flailing. People do not look good flailing. And thus, people do not look good playing Project Natal. You will not look good playing Project Natal.

    And...that's okay! Nobody looks cool playing regular video games. Have you ever seen what people look like watching TV?

    Pretty sure the only technology that people look cool using is a computer — especially when they are writing. Furiously. (Like I am right now!)

    But, hey, a room full of friends and a buncha beers, Project Natal's gobber aspect is no biggie. It's no more embarrassing that, say, playing plastic instruments! Though, word to the wise: Do not film your significant other or your children playing Project Natal and then upload said footage on the internet. What happens in the living room, stays in the living room."

    I see nothing wrong in this video
    Just a man giving orders to a flailing young boy while hitting some balls [​IMG]
    At least both of them seem to be enjoying it

    This. Even if I did have a 360, I wouldn't get it just for that. My rented room is...well it has a cot and dresser and I can barely open the door in it. I'm sure this will be a great toy for the rich, but that's all, really. The rich that don't mind looking stupid [​IMG]

    But seriously, that's what everyone made fun of the Wii for. As long as the experience that it provides is fun, then I'm all for it.

    This is like when idiots play the wii and play tennis and throw it through the TV...unnecessary *headdesk*
    I'm sure you can play the game without looking such ftards but they choose not to...or don't know they're doing it...
    It's not gonna say 'Make sure whilst playing the game you look like an idiot on fire or you won't win'.
    Still not buying it though.

    Honestly it looks like a ton of fun if you can get some friends together and go nuts. For regular games I don't see Natal having any use past menu control.

    I've actually never thought waggling the wiimote around looked dumb to be honest. It just looks like your pointing or waving at stuff, not like this where it looks like "Dancing with the Retards". [​IMG]

    I'm sure people that actual know what they're doing won't be flailing around like that. You honestly think little kids and people that don't have as much experience with this kind of thing (The people in the video) compared to gamers that will most likely buy and enjoy Project Natal?

    Also, I don't see how you can compare it to the Wii and say the Wii doesn't make you look stupid (Neither of them really do). Have you seen the new commercial for the black Wii where the kid is sitting through a day of sitting down a lot and being bored, and comes home to play Wii Sports Resort with his mom, where the flail their arms around in the Swordplay game. I know they most likely aren't playing it for real (In the Wii commercial), so I can really say anything about that, but this isn't exactly the best demonstration of Project Natal. I'm sure there will be a demonstration at E3 where they don't look like octopi.

    One more thing...How is Project Natal embarrassing? No one is going to be watching you unless you have people at your house watching you (If they are actually interested, they won't care what it makes you look like). If you're honestly that embarrassed, don't buy it.

    Wii a waggle device.

    Natal a wiggle device.


    I guess Move is between the two of them?
