Examiner: "Microsoft is directly going after the Wii audience seeing that they are already showcasing their full body motion controller to the mass media."
I didnt know i came on this morning....ill catch it tonight :)
Cool... too bad I don't have cable. So is it confirmed that Natal will come this Spring (according to that news article)? Did you guys see the video on ABC's Good Morning America? http://abcnews.go.com/video... It glitched more than I expected. Hopefully it will be more accurate for the final release.
take it to the open zone
Natal is cool...it is going to just expand the possibilities on 360.
In that abc video i see it reads body fast. the part where the lady switch places with guy. It new instantly . It changed on the screen. thats interesting....
You can say what you want about Natal or MS but these guys are genious when it comes to marketing. I can tell Natal is gonna be the next Tickle Me Elmo/Wii. By that I mean it will be a must have on alot of peoples Christmas lists.
Take it to the open zone, or better yet, just go away. Edit: Oh yeah and you just sparked a deep hatred from me towards you for making fun of Ratchet and Clank. Just take your multiple account and leave. On Topic: So it's coming out pretty soon, that's sweet news.
1.2, so the NATAL isnt a Eyetoy REHASH, and Milo isnt an eyePET REHASH? Btw. Demons Souls would make you cry because you couldnt even beat the tutorial level, so talk about games youve actually played or more like, talk about games you know about. Uhh wait, Banjo Kazooie Nuts And Bolts, i cant remember people talking about it lately? What about Fable 2? The only news are that it gets lame DLC additions! Viva Pinata? Oh man, you got to be kidding me. Huxley, yeah everybody is hyped for Huxley, because its a 360 Exclusive, i bet most wouldnt care since its a MMO, rite? APB, yeah awesome game from the creators of Crackdown! Wait its a MMO so why are you hyped about it? Oh well its like FFXIV a MMO so.. seriously why? Just a MMO? Man, Natal isnt even working properly and wont see the light of the market till late 2009, and even MILO is a pure fake. Peter Molyneux is a good guy and developer but with Milo he talked pure crap. Man, get out of my sight, cretain.
microsoft has DLC and hype. E3 2009 Best of Show: Uncharted 2 God of War III is for real men, go play with milo... L4d2 is getting a boycott ODST is 5 hour DLC and will get pirated. forza is inferior alan alone in the dark
@1.2: Take that crap to the Open Zone man. I see no PS3 fans in this thread and we should be happy not entice them. I say they are the worst fanboys in gaming but your comments make me look like a liar. OnTopic: Natal needs a huge marketing push and even greater a good selection of top quality games to support it. The ball smacking thing is a good demo but it won't sell me on it.
Alan Wake looks better than anything on the PS3 so take your BS to the open zone. This is about natal and it looks really promising.
People like you are the reason for hate. Spin the facts any way you want, but first learn the history of video games. Fanboys on this website are delusional lately. If someone doesn't want motion controls that is their opinion and not open for ridicule, but certainly open for debate. Mr Controversy what motion sensored games have you played? I have played evry major released game on the WII, motion controlls are only fun for select genre of games ( sport, party, and mini games.) Try playing Call of Duty 3 for the wii it's horrible. I don't want motion controls rammed down our throughts and I'm sure the more people spend time they will find out why. Motion controls are not the next big thing as they are designed in today standards. I'm not saying forever just not right now. I stuck to the article Mr Controversy why don't you try it.
And yet he earned 26 agrees for his spiteful commentary. That shows something about this place, doesn't it?
go read Joystiq Alan Wake hands on...Alone in the Dark is mentioned multple times. Evem from the way the levels are like episodes and everything. E3 2009 Best of Show: Uncharted 2...nuff said. :)
I just watched it and I was laughing my a$$ off! natal with all its deformation glitches, the guy saying "you look like your having a seizure", froze for a few seconds and to how retarded they look playing it in general! LOL! Wii remote is starting to look alittle better now that I think about it... Not being a fanboy, just saying what I see...
hrmmm... man, this thing needs a lot of work...
It wont be out until fall 2010 i think they have time.
it's all over for Sony now, Project Natal will send Sony to its grave.
don't forget Nintendo. Then who will microsoft compete with? They will have to steal there own exclusives. :D
I like how a lot of people on this site said that this will never come out. MS is already showing this to the public and getting free publicity. They will be showing it on the Jimmy fallen show tonight. Its only a matter of time before Oprah has it on her show and people will be preodering it like crazy.
well now and days its not hard for a American company to get a lot of press about something that could be revolutionary for gaming. I really dont think thats going to be the case, but as crazy as the american media is, they are going to hype the sh!t out of this when the release. As for my opinion, i hate this natal project, i dont want to be playing games without a controller, which is one reason why i like sonys motion idea. But i cant see either really taking off till the next wave of systems are out
You see things through a PS3 fan prism. "The Minority Report" tech will be more popular than Nintendo could have ever imagined and that scares and angers fans of the other platforms.
check out this interview with molinuex from game reactor... he's explained that unlike the milo and kate game , they arent going to completely throw the controller out the window... they will have games that integrate natal with the controller. Which again opens up a ton of new ideas to get excited about. Game Spot podcast talked about the ideas that can be used especially with the voice recognition tech of natal. Imagine in gears 3 talking with / commanding delta squad in real time or better yet maybe shouting at baird to finally shut the f up. Dream come true that last one here you go: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
They also could design a Wiimote for Natal with less trouble than making games for full body motion lol. I'm sure devs could design games that allow all of Natal's software/hardware resources to track two or three points vs its defacto 48 points.
"You see things through a PS3 fan prism." gee i didnt see that coming, and im not scared of this technology, i just dont want it to be here already. but guess that makes me a ps3 fanboy right. thanks 2.3 i never had seen that
really duh^ doshey didnt say anything fanboyish in his comment. If you dont have something in your hand it ruins the imagination that you are holding a sword or gun. @shbzshar i dont think natal would be worth it if they just used it in minigames, especially since its most likely going to cost over $100
One of the cool things about Natal is that devs have the abilty to create games that use both a standard controller and Natal, so i'm guessing that some games will have the option to use one or the other. My point is that games are going to be created so that the user has the option to use or not use Natal if they choose to. Fyi... http://www.edge-online.com/...
You can smell his intent from a mile away and his response is further proof lol. You can't see his Sony cheerleading from his first post? No one cares if he thinks Sony's motion offerings are better to him in a "XBOX 360" article in the 360 section.
say you are playing a stealth game with controller and Natal (optional) and you're wall hugging at the corner then you just tilt your head in real life like you are trying to peek around the corner and the game reacts to your speed and angle that you look. Imagine what creative people can come up with
The lighting wasn't all that great and the technology demo worked all right as long as the person stood in the correct area.
2.8 okay i like sony more than MS, so that makes me a fanboy right, No i like sony but im not going to always defend sony, i will give Ms there respect when they do something good. Like windows 7, F**KING love it, natal, i dont think it has a strong future right now, i dont even think sonys does. its something sony and ms should of both brought in when they announced there new systems
"or better yet maybe shouting at baird to finally shut the f up. Dream come true that last one" -LOL. A dream come true for me too.
I got a feeling MS will be putting a Halo 3 budget ad campaign behind Natal cause if they get this right they maybe able to surpass the Wii. And BLaZiN PRopHeT is right once its on Oprah i can only imagine how huge it would get
Ah,so this is the dream.
"say hello to my looooo ooooooo!" *gyaaaaa* *a thousand screaming ladies*
LOL soon as Natal get shown on Oprah I expect 360 sales to increase .
MS has always been the king of marketing there projects...
Oprah had people rioting at KFCs across the nation for Grilled Chicken. So just think of MSFT product with here showcasing. bye bye wii.
Oprah...the one woman in the world who could sell mass murder to a a country and actually have the country buy it.......
Oprah is a saint !!.... her farts can save lives
I wish sony did this type of marketing for some of their big games....
They always shown this EYE TOY LIKE ball game... where the AWSOME technology they claim?
Eye toy is nothing like Natal since it can only detect movements in 2 dimensions. Natal is 3d motion sensing technology...comparing the two is like comparing 2d sidescrolling graphics to 3d graphics...no comparison.
I see Natal having a high marketing budget.
That's how it's done...or in Sony's Bizarro World, how it's NOT done. :o
there once was a boy called Mr controversy if anything that came on 360 he would f**k it oh wait that didnt rhyme dam mooks and foxgod have teached him some lessons lol
Someone needs to "teached" you some proper English. :/
@Troll-killer Mavericks are teached different, that's what it is. @Maverick The word is "taught".
That was buddy. I hope they have something better than that crap.
I agree. More games.
Nah... thats what the world did after watching Sony at E3
I told you not to watch sony press conference but no you want to watch it.
I fell into a deep sleep for a week after seeing James Cameron's live talk about Avatar (both movie and game), I want my whole hour back.

This is exactly why it won't end up working, the Wii is a cultural phenomenon because it was seen as a WTF, and sells mainly through continued word of mouth and the "I want that because my neighbor has it". Natal wil just be seen as an attachment that is trying to copy or take the Wii one step further, but it isn't what makes the system, it's just a little part of a whole. A whole that's been out for almost four years and has a strong desire to copy anything in it's path. Natal may not be a direct copy but it's definitely implied in the design. Nintendo doesn't have anything to worry about, neither does Sony for that matter, this thing is going to catch on with the public at the same rate as the N-Gage.
I think ms is gonna surprise everybody and release it this year to much press to wait till next year people would have forgotten about it by then
...they could take the Sony approach, and drag it out another 2 years, like with Home. :o
OK. Oh, you Microsoft. ALWAYS being "Original"
I am not a fan of the Wii, but if they could target the hardcore games with this tech I may become even more interested. As of right now, I will probably buy Natal but only use it for when friends or family are over, I'm hoping they could do something to entice us hardcore gamers as well.
Hi open zone im from the gamer zone. wow its so different in here.
Catching on yet?
...getting tired of seeing xabmol's fanboy trolling posts yet? GTFO, son >>>>>
troll killer he kinda has a point with that video
Good stuff xabmol....It appears as if Natal is a super advanced eye toy incorporated well into the 360 dash board. The eye toy was definitely good for it's time, but when up against the Natal it appears to be a little gimmicky. As soon as MS releases some hardcore games I think your vision will change from slanted to proper thinking. edit: I can't believe you compared the kungfu game on natal to that mike tyson game on eyetoy lol. Also notice how natal uses your body motion for motion and not just to tilt left and right. Sorry dude but the eye toys features are not far off from my webcam for pc.
My Opinion, I Still prefer a controller over an Eye toy or Natal.
to see themselves moving about like that... I think it's Kewl Tech. Hopefully they can make some fun games and add more functionality to it. I'm already thinking about Party Games....you can't go wrong Of course what sets Natal apart besides the motion stuff like the eye toy is the impressive AI, voice recognition, and face recognition. A little bit more advance.
haha omg that looked so terrible "You look like your having a seizure!" haha
