Sports and web celebrities got hands-on time with Project Natal at E3 this week.
give me a controller nobody going 2 play burnout with that maybe for 10 mins
To show a racing game with this tech. Nothing is realer than a steering wheel in your hands, your feet on some pedals, a clutch, and some force feedback for racing games. I am sure that is how my car and truck are set up, hell even my riding mower works the same way.
"1 - fuc that sh!t give me a controller nobody going 2 play burnout with that maybe for 10 mins" Fnck that sh!+ give me a control ? How about "Fnck your stupidity how about a brain moron" Of course Natal read your whole body movement but there is no doubt they will give you a damn control so you can hold it in your hand while at the same time do body movements. Come on all of you morons complaining about this. This can easily have the same features of Eye Toy and Wii Control merged with Natal and what is p!ss!ng a lot of PS3 gamers is that you dont need a control but they can implement it in the project to. Now everybody imaging Elder Scroll OBLIVION in this! In 1 hand The Shield and in the other hand the sword and at the same time you have wraped on each hand a control just like the nunchuk from wii and with them you can move forward and turn your character. Now imaging morons! Now tell me the eyetoy is better!
You STUPID BABOONS fall for everything because you're all too blind to see the real truth.....AHAHAHHAAHHAHAHAHAH
PS2 eye toy (some boxing game) = http://www.youtube.com/watc... PS3 eye pet = http://www.youtube.com/watc... Now go look for some Eye of Judgment!
uh.......these celebs dont mean much to me, i think its funny that miyamoto was trying it out
Though it is always cool to see Sugar Ray out and about. Lethal hands on that man. Project Natal's tech is cool. But its going to be the software that makes or breaks this deal. I would rather see this tech lead to a new genre of games then play something like Burnout with it. Lets face it for driving games nothing can feel more real than having a steering wheel in your hands and pedals under your feet with some force feedback. Laughing my ass off watching the Felicia Day video. Just LOL. Still interested to see what kind of future project could be possible with this.
Cringeworthy watching them. They seemed to be really over acting. This is just the same as the lame PS eye.
the kickball game went from looking retarded to looking like stupid fun based on these videos the Burnout demo looks like its working surprisingly well too
I don't know what you guys were watching, but it did look like fun. The only problem is that you can clearly see there's some lag issues, looks like about 1 second or so.
Marketing at its finest, cant blame MS for trying to show they actually have something worth talking about at this years E3.
u mean it did look more like acting than fun. Typical american marketing
Funny how they need 2 pay celebs to play natal lol
OBviously the actors are paid. Do you think anyone will say things like.. "its sooo cool, you feel like playing skateboard and dodgeball" and stuff just after 3 mins of play time? Be a little more sensible people.
......whoa, that can help many stay thin, not to mention it can help build a social environment. i wonder what other games you can play on this thing i hope doge ball isn't going to be something like this :P http://www.youtube.com/watc... natal seems to look cool.
Firstly wtf is up with that thing on the back of Rodriguez when he jumping around/bending down. It definetely is not a mic adapter(dont know what they're really called) because the sound quaity is too crap. Secondly Natal is going to suck and so is the motion control on the PS3. Just carry on making exclusive games like Killzone2, Infamous, MGS4 and multiplats like COD4 and I will be happy.
I'm calling it right now: Sugar Ray's Natal Boxing and Paul Rodriguez's Natal Skateboarding. One or both at Natal Launch. Write it down.
Bubbles for being hilarious, LOL
Although seeing it used in burnout paradise is nice. I want to see it in hardcore games like incorporated into tom clancy games, hitman and call of duty modern warfare 1 and 2 would be interesting to see. Mainly for me to be excited they have to confirm on some games im going to play for a while not handball, considering the camera is already rumored to cost 200$ it better be in just about every game
This why I think Natal was the right move for MS. Even though it's just a rip off of the PSeye. This targets the Wii audience. Sony's motion controller targets us "Real" gamers. Which is great for us, but I don't think it's great for sales.
Anyone else think Don Mattrick has got one of those faces you just wanna punch ???
SDF ACTIVATE!!! So this despite using all different tech is a rip off the eye toy? If you're going to use such bad logic like that then you should say the eyetoy it a rip off a webcam with software, or the dreameye but that would be true. And how is this going after the Wii's audience but -$ony's motion controller, a direct rip off the wiimote isn't? Spin Spin Spin. This uses full body motion without the need for any physical controller to be used but the -$ony uses a Waggle stick and you think it's just M$ going after the Wii's audience? Funny how the SDF ridiculed the Wii's motion controller as a fad but now they have their own it's the greatest thing ever? Did -$ony PR tell you that?
If you people are going to say it is a rip off of the PSeye then you need to say it is a way improved rip off of the PSeye. Most of the things i see natal doing i have not seen done with the eye.
Just buy a xbox and natal and you won't be talking all the bs. your mad b/c the technology is awesome and you don't have it on your console. just like me wishing god of war was on xbox 360 but i'm not going to down the game, the game looks awesome. just admit this is ground breaking and is going to sell through the roof, whether you like it or not. this site is mostly sony fans, so the real public don't care or even know about this site. they just see a awesome tech that needs no controller and is voice recognized. o yea and ms pays everyone, including my grama for every good note said. come on. get a life.
Now, I want to see this in a smaller size room. Most living room are not that large.
this is amazing marketing, really shows off how this is a new experience compared to waggle wands on release if MS can market it this well it has a chance of actually competing with wii
don't worry about M$ marketing. They'll have project natal tatoo'd onto the butts of every beach ball chick and lasered into the moon.
It won't work in my apartment, that's for sure.
what a peice of [email protected]
I like to watch felicia day move...But that was pretty cool. Seems like they were having fun. EDIT ah i see Don Mattrick ...all smiles.
The dodge ball game looks pretty trivial mini-game. The driving looks fun, but it looks like it could be tiring. I wonder if you can sit down and do the driving.
MS and their marketing! Get some "celebs" around it and film them. Beyond that though, it looks like the tech is working just need to move it past the ball tossing game. Interesting that you put right foot forward for gas. Someone was asking how they would do walk run and stop. Probably in a similar way.
I cant wait to get more information on this device. I have ton of concerns and questions about how they plan on implementing this into gaming. Questions like: Do you have to be in the center of the camera? Does the device have to be calibrated or is it good to go out of the box? Which fuels my next question. Are you going to be able to play head to head. If so how? Will you need two Natal's? Do you have to play in a well lit room?
Well they did say more then on person can play using the natal. http://www.xbox-scene.com/x...
Are you going to be able to play head to head. If so how? Will you need two Natal's? Only one Natal is used for multiplayer gaming.On XBL there is a video on a family of 4 playing 1vs100 with Natal.They all sat down and Natal recognized all of them. Do you have to play in a well lit room?It uses Inra-red which is invisible to the human eye, so it works with the lights off.Eurogamer and IGN tried it out and they said it worked. Does the device have to be calibrated or is it good to go out of the box? I don't know but i would think so because once you stand in front of it, it immediately signs you into your profile.So i guess you would have to do some level of calibration but we will have to wait and see. Do you have to be in the center of the camera? To sign in yes, then once that is done you don't have to stand directly in front of it. I hope that helps a bit.
Green and Warlord
You put your right foot in, you put your right foot out, you put your right foot in and you shake it all about...... That's what it's all about.
Nice. It looks like they were having fun.
thats pretty damn cool. (its my first time watching natal in action.)
I had not watched the burnout game with Natal and I've got to say that it looks hard to control. You can see how these guys were having trouble with it. As for the ball throwing game, well there's been games like that for the Eyetoy so it's nothing new. If the final product features games like these I just don't see how it'll revolutionize anything in gaming.
Foot forward-gas, foot backward-brake.
lol remember when the guy was saying "Its super responsive" "realistic" "foot forward foot back" and Don mattrick was smiling in the back...im sorry i cant help it . his face is comical
MSFT is going to do a detailed showing of it on some TV network in a few days I forget which one.
NBC...jimmy falon show...lol http://www.latenightwithjim...
yup same openzone also i will say felicia day has got moves... :)
Marketing first then games would come later...since most 3rd-party were very timid with support. Who knows what will come out of this but being able to immerse yourself in a game is darn right fun, given the right game. Just like the Wii, not every game will be great or be functional but the one that are popular seems to be the ones we tend to call shovel-ware. Oh no!! Nintendo is not complaining. There is a slew of gamers out there that are not into hardcore graphics and all that jazz. As long as there is a market, I say go for it. Casual and Hardcore gamers can live side by side as we seen in the past. I swear "Sugar Ray" looks like he still got his quick reflexes, I wouldn't, doubt he could still beat the BUMS of today. The guy look 30.
There was only South Park episode before pre launch. WiiSports wether anyone wants to admit it was a killer-app. It may possibly be the biggest killer app ever, because EVERYONE had to have it. Also you forgot that ZELDA TWILIGHT PRINCESS came out on launch and those two started to print money. In the game world you need a killer app. For MS its Halo and Gears. For Sony its GT5.
That room is very bright
the playstion 3 eye doesn't need that much light
Well i think in this video http://www.vimeo.com/498963... It was trying to explain its still responsive even without light.
PlayStation eye is inferior guy just deal with it. The depth sensor consists of an infrared projector combined with a monochrome CMOS sensor, and allows the Project Natal sensor to see in 3D under any lighting conditions.
wonder how much MS paided them to say them things about tech that years old and which has bad lag cant believe Sugar Ray said ' u have more control' LMFAO big time
I wonder how much Sony pays their fanboys to spread hate on N4G.... Do you guys get exclusive betas or demos? How about free money to buy stuff on PSN store? They must be paying something for all the fanboys on here. You guys are in every 360 article saying "this is lame", "PS Eye is the same thing", "360 SUXORS". Give it a rest already. This is coming from someone who got rid of their 360 and only owns PS3 now. *EDIT* @ below My problem is that there is too much conflict on this site and every gaming site. Seems that someone must be benefiting somehow to blindly fight for one console vs. another. I never saw this stuff in the Sega and Nintendo days, however the Internet wasn't around as it is these days. I guess everyone wants to support a console and diss another, however it's just child's play and we should be gaming and forming a community, not segregating and talking sh!t about the competitor. *EDIT* *EDIT* @ below Why would these people care about money? Don't they have enough already? They're wealthy for f#*k's sake. Why would they want a few measly bucks from MS to endorse a product? *EDIT* @ 11.3 Funny that you and everyone else has to bring up the MS checkbook everytime a MS product gets good reviews or positive hype. Do you think MS paid off all of the people who viewed Natal behind closed doors? Do you think they just throw money around for good reviews? Honestly, that is just a lame excuse to hide jealousy. I don't care if you own both systems, you can still be a fanboy
They're obviously paid to endorse this, and this seems a lot like the Eye Toy. What's the problem?
@ElementX i have a 360 with about 40 games and a PS3 with about 20 games, i played the 360 all the time until GTAIV came out and now i play the PS3 more. so its funny how u think im a fanboy if i own less games then i have on my fanboy system. u make me laugh
believe me if i was a fanboy of sony then i wont have a 360, also the other way round. Natal does look cool in the pre ordered videos but not in the live demos, and that has me worried. i just fill sony have a better motion controller. and about the games, i will be getting alan wake, splinter cell, crackdown 2 and L4D2 (but on PC like i got L4D1)
@Kionic they only show the guy on that video
Yeah i know, been trying to find a better more "detailed one with people around him". couldnt..sorry
I cant help thinking about the Eyetoy on ps2... I keep telling myself that this is far more advanced and that its more accurate..but i ahve a feeling that it wont matter. All these celeb endorsements are not sitting well with me either.
We know you can't help it, whats new? EDIT:@MajesticBeast WTF did you just say? If you can't handle the news GTFO
Why dis is kudo damn dude you embarrased yourself with your avatar get off the stage!
it worked for nintendo because they packed it in "day one."it wasn't just because of marketing. anything you pack in has a better change of full support if it is packed in.the only exception is if you have a large following like nintendo does being that they support family play.which microsoft's natal marketing videos is trying to suggest. bluray worked because it was day one.motion from nintendo worked because it was day one.hdmi worked for sony because it was day one and didn't split the gamer base of haves and have nots.same with sony's hard drive support. no accessory from the past ever succeeded from nintendo,sony,sega,nec,etc,bec ause it was never packed in.which is why sony packed everything in.the pseye hasn't sold as well as last gen of 15 million because sony should have packed it in this time.the headset from microsoft sold well for online because it was packed in. pack it in and you're 80% already there.if not,10% chance unless you create a runaway fad.microsoft would have to spend h#ll a money to create that and a game to go with natal.but from what i seen on stage being demonstrated,chances are unlikely of full scale success. apocalypse........
I've been thinking, yo know you could do a great REMAKE of that original Nintendo game KUNG-FU. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... Simple game but this could work....
I use to love that game
Lmao. She'd have more fun if she was actually hitting the balls. And why does she sound like she's trying to sell me this? I see fail all over this.
......says lloyd wonder EVERYBODY you heard from him it must be TRUE..... sigh
@lloyd_loser If all you can say is you think it looks like fail, just quit coming into these threads and talking crap. Ok, we get it. It's not on the PS3 and so it automatically sucks. You are completely predictable and you aren't adding anything to the discussion.
The tech has potential. Watching 'celebs' whack balls around is not impressive. The burnout demo is promising, not because of the game, but the responsiveness. I would hate to play racing games like that. I don't even like steering wheels and pedals. The possibilities of this could be endless. They just need some talented people to take advantage of it. Edit at testerg I am a huge PS3 fanboy. I really don't care for Microsoft. Does my response sound like I think its a waste of time and that it won't amount to anything...? No, its an honest, unbiased opinion.
Man.. it doesn't really matter who tells PS3 fans that Natal works, they'll still come up with an excuse that it doesn't. You guys complain that there so many approved articles about Natal how well it works and in each article, 80% of the posts are from PS3 fans with the typical denial posts like "MS paid the sites", "the so and so site is biased", "the media is biased", "MS paid the celebrities", ... Are you guys always posting just to try to convince yourselves that Natal doesn't work cause you're afraid that it might actually work and sell really well?
