Screen Digest: Online To Grow 33% In 2010, Natal To Extend Cycle

The online market is set to undergo considerable growth in 2010, according to UK-based analyst firm Screen Digest, and new motion control solutions from Microsoft and Sony will extend the current console generation.

Funny how no one has talked about it Natal online.

Maybe because from what has been released Natal has a 100ms, now play modern warfare 2 at that and you'll notice that's far more noticable than 50ms.

Now imagine at the minimum a 150-200ms ALLWAYS!

Seeing as onLIVE people have said that 80ms is noticable(onlive seems like they know what they are talking about).

As fond as I am of the idea of Natals imersion I am a bigger fan of playing online (360's main draw)
