New Project Natal footage from the Spanish TV

Project Natal was in Spain, and "La Sexta" (TV Channel) went to his presentation. The video includes scenes from the Ricochet demo, this time more advanced, but not being the final version yet.

Failtal

Wrathman2871d ago

yeah you guys stick to your pretend sword fighting games.lmao

wow every video i have seen of randons playing this are totally blown away..thats why you fruits are pissing your pants in here.and wot makes it worse for you is from wot you can see is more or less no lag.and your glowy wii dongs lag way worse.hahaha

psmove..available at an anne summers party this year!!!lmfao

Mo0eY2871d ago

Last I checked swords were way more awesome than red balls. But I'm sure you like balls, Wrathman.

infekt2870d ago

Bots like playing with balls..

xTruthx2871d ago (Edited 2871d ago )

At 1:48 the guy said, if they worry about making good makes i have no doubt this will succeed. So those games he was playing in there weren't fun......?

BTW am I the only 1 who thinks those videos after the 1 minute mark are fake ? They just seem to perfect xD and if its like that then wow, the response time is amazing.

Nitrowolf22871d ago

yeah that part i believe is already recorded beofre its like the MILO thing they did.
That would be amazing if they could get it that accurate

And about that part of him saying that (i understand spanish) i have no idea if he ment it like that. Either way i am sick of seeing the same game.

Christopher2871d ago (Edited 2871d ago )

Note the time from 1:09 to 1:13 with both ladies playing natal. There's still noticeable lag, about 1/2 second. This is the same they've been showing since last year.

Attached image shows both women with their legs in the air, yet both of their avatars are standing on the ground. I will note that the TV avatar of the woman on the left is starting to raise off the ground.

Microsoft, please show us something at E3 that will make this more than just fluff for the hardcore, because right now I'm still thinking this will just fit the casual market with some pointless bounce around hand and feet games. I barely have time to play all the good hardcore games out there, I'm not going to be wasting my time playing casual fluff games like this.

fox022871d ago (Edited 2871d ago )

Where's the PSMove? It was suppose to come out a month ago and yet no one seems to give a flying phuck about it.
The whole biased media keeps talking about Natal this, Natal that... SDF mobilize, we need to hype the move because right now, no one cares about it.

Wrathman2871d ago

what you guys dont seem to notice in all these video is how excited people are at playin with natal.surely that says something.and all the media gurus come away totally blown away by the tech.

meanwhile back at sony HQ the media is like MEH over ps move.

Obama2871d ago

of course only the catching red ball game is real. If the other games on the video are real, MS would have shown them off already.

Cold 20002871d ago (Edited 2871d ago )

Lol I was thinking the same thing. Check my post 3.10

Even on a site like N4G nobody gives a crap anout the Move.

Natal threads just shoot straight to 1000° in no time while Move threads...well...lol.

Oh!! I got it! MS is paying N4G members to post in Natal threads so they reach front page! Damn and there I was thinking that this was a PS3 haven! :)

GiantEnemyCrab2871d ago (Edited 2871d ago )

^^^^I think people see Move as too "samey" to the Wii and then they see Natal as doing something one step beyond so there reaction to Move is "meh". MS picked a good time to go with a controller free device and market it as an "evolution" of the Wii experience.

I predict after E3 you will see Sony start to shift more twords showing what the EYE can deliver on its own without Move but at the same time part of the Move experience(GT5 head tracking being the start). Then they start that path down the trademark and patent minefield MS has been laying down for the last couple years for controller free gaming.

DOMination2871d ago

Move looks like a tacky "me too" Wiimote copycat to the average person in the street, regardless of whether it is or not and that's why they aren't interested in it.

aceitman2871d ago (Edited 2871d ago )

y is it always so bright around where people stand look at the videos and by the way ( cgoodno) u are right that pic is what i saw that made me say what the hell was that .. and those who disagrre with that pick is blind come on if it wasnt what i saw ill say ok but i saw it in the video and it is real ms needs to fix it and come out when its ready like sony is doing if u rush it out and it aint right or does what u said it does than it will fail

4Sh0w2871d ago (Edited 2871d ago )

I'm sick of seeing the same Natal "Riccochet demo" myself, but I guess I didn't come to this thread to complain about it because I realize that this is news coming out of Spain which for the most part is mostly a result of the Spanish media's first hands on time with Natal. sigh, I don't think this news is aimed at a informed gamer like me. I wonder why I even bothered to click on another Natal thread, the goddamm link is in Spanish! wtf is wrong with Spain, don't they know what English is?

It's such a shame microsoft is advertising their product in Spain, and I suspect they only announced that seperate Natal event at E3 so that everyone at the event has a chance to come on stage an try their brand new "Milo Riccochet" game for themselves. Hey, I'm not the brightest guy around but I think its a mistake that this is all microsoft will have to show at E3, maybe they should be working on other games too.

Parapraxis2871d ago

@aceitman, MS would logically set up the most optimal settings to showcase the new hardware, as would any company.

The questions about lighting, distance, timing etc are all valid, but we'll all have to wait for proper product reviews that test these conditions to see how Natal handles the environmental variables.

Redempteur2871d ago

Nothing new ..i'll wait for actual games and not pre edited footage from microsoft ..

i REALLY HOPE i 'll NOT see that kick the ball /dodge game after E3 ..really

right and wrong2871d ago

Fox you brought up a good question. What the heck happened to Moves release date?

silvacrest2871d ago

Natal has the "new, shiny" effect and im sure the casuals will eat it up, assuming its issues are resolved

and yeah, to the uninformed move looks like more of the same but once the hype slows down for both motion devices and they are judged purely on what they can do and games available, thats when i'll take notice

also, even though some of you are 360 fanboys are you really going to buy natal knowing what games are coming?

as a ps3 owner i asked my self the same question about move and i wont be buying it

HolyOrangeCows2871d ago

Mucho Ricochet, no mucho otros videojuegos :(

Triella2871d ago (Edited 2871d ago )

No news here. The commentator says that they wouldn't let the journalist record the screen while people were playing, obviously there's still noticeble lag MS is trying to conceal (well, they managed to show us some lag and some hiccups around 1:10 anyway). Oh and MS graciously gave them the promotion video so people would have an idea what to expect from Natal (without specifying in the comments that it was only a target render vid).

They also said they only got to play Ricochet and were told it was still in developpement (so there's basically no improvement over last year E3 demo). Those two girls (MS VPs) were the only one demoing the entire presentation because "the technology is so advanced that if there were anything wrong with the demo they would be the only one to know how to fix it" (yeah right, what a pretext)

The journos didn't seem very impressed either, they say things we basically already heard : that its success will be depending on what developpers creat for it, another one is cut short while saying he's sure Nintendo is closely watching Natal [cut part : and they already have something to counter it] and the last one says that yeah it's another take on the wiimote but he can't really say if it's for the best.

Bigpappy2871d ago

You are one brave dude to say shyt like that on N4G. You will be bubble free before midnight. I don't see PS3 only guys speak so bluntly about Move with the fanboy war going on. I have a lot of respect for honesty. I will not bubble you for speaking against the move, I will do it because I respect you as a person of integrity and it is rare to find that with the people on the internet, let alone this site. Bubbles!

Parapraxis2871d ago (Edited 2871d ago )

@ Bigpappy , Move is more in-line with what i'm interested in, but if the games suck I won't be buying it for myself (might still get it for the GF though..EA Sports active and stuff, she enjoys motion controlled games).
There, happy?

@ Triella, thanks for the translation. Shame that MS is not allowing people to film it properly, and some of the conditions are sketchy.
Maybe they just want to keep it under-wraps while they do the global PR tour (contradiction?)

ProjectVulcan2871d ago (Edited 2871d ago )

No.1: The studio woman is hot
No.2: The reporter isnt
No.3: I dont speak spanish
No.4: I didnt see anything i havent seen before (except the news woman, did i mention she was hot?)

badz1492871d ago

"the only problem is getting tired" - alert! alert! short games on the horizon! if Natal is the future of consoles, then say goodbye to gaming marathon because you'll get tired real fast or maybe say goodbye to your school/job, because you can't wake up in the morning as you're too tired after playing games last night! your choice!

and it's been awhile since E3 2009 and all they have is the ball knocking game? have they been sleeping the whole year?

xTruthx2870d ago

lol people disagreeing with my first post and my main language is spanish.

inveni02870d ago

It's to the point now that, if they show anything but red balls, I'll be impressed.

Army_of_Darkness2870d ago (Edited 2870d ago )

the two chicks playing that red ball game look crazy, maybe even zombie like lol!

I have heard many accounts of natal falling down depending on the 'proportions' of the player shall we say, very thin people are fine, but the fatter you get the harder it is for the sensors to work out your movements. I'm very fat so unlikely to be buying one of these! Perhaps a 'large friendly' version will come out at some point.

-MD-2871d ago

I don't see how being overweight would affect the sensors at all.

Fishy Fingers2871d ago

I doubt that's going to be a problem or something MS wouldnt have solved, because well, the 360s biggest market, the US, has a good proportion of over weight people.

Anyway, shouldnt it be easier to track a "larger object".

AlexeiBorodin2871d ago

@Murderdolls - if somebody takes up the whole of the field of vision of the scanners, how can they tell if the blob is waddling?!! I'm a missile targeting software developer for the military so trust me I know.

@Fishy Fingers - you'd think they'd target the American fatties, but apparently they screwed that up... see above for your comment re: larger target.

I myself can barely fit through doorways, let alone into Natal's sensors!!

Eamon2871d ago

That has to be one of the most funniest and retarded comments I've read so far on N4G.

Thanks for the humor.

Bigpappy2871d ago (Edited 2871d ago )

It can see 2 people at the same time (Rumored 4). How big are you guys? If you could fit through a door way, you are both to gig for natal. Your guys should be the people happiest for full body motion. Just be careful how much you play at once. If you can increase you activity level and have fun while doing it will increase you health and you will loose some weight. This is in the privacy of your own home and you buy the games that encourage you to play instead of watching Richard Simmons on a DVD. We have at least 6 months before this thing is on shelves, so there is a lot more info to come before decision time.

Yes. We will all like to see the games. E3 is not that far away, so hold on. With that said, none of those people playing ricochet look bored. It is a very simple game that you just get in and play (Like racket ball). I want that game for free with my launch Natal. I will bet that this demo will be in every Game Stop and Best BUY and other top retail stores before November. This and dash board navigation will be one of a package of mini games in the M$ kiosk for Natal. After E3 I will be able to say what it means for holiday sales.

karl2871d ago

anyway even if it can recognize your body i dont see a fat guy playing ricochet

Parapraxis2871d ago

"fat people dont do stand up"
What are you talking about, there are plenty of over-weight comedians.
=D

karl2871d ago

i forgot about Gabe Newell...
i wonder how long could he endure that natal game before asking for a joystick

ProjectVulcan2871d ago (Edited 2871d ago )

What next? If you have an impressive trousersnake natal tracks it accidentally as a third leg?

Sadly i wont have that problem...

IdleLeeSiuLung2871d ago

It's like the obese people get special treatment and get disabled parking spots. I don't want to sound insensitive here, but the vast majority of people that are obese get it from inactivity.

This wasn't meant as a stab at OP, but for Natal might just make gaming an exercise. I liked Punch Out on the Wii and it would get me all sore. It is not cardiovascular, but still better than finger exercises all day.

llMurcielagoll2870d ago

So you are saying you are too fat that the Natal sensors can't pick up your movements?!

Don't worry you are not fat, you're fluffy! I guess Natal's sensors can pick up the movement of fluffy people :P

Sorry I couldn't resist the humor XD

Microsoft are truly innovating this gen and Natal is proving to be the icing on the cake.

Get this guy a mic he's making my abs hurt with all of the laughter. Surely you can't be serious, and yes I called you Surely.

gta_manic2871d ago

lets just end the this and not comment on the stupidity of DOMination's statement and the obvious baiting.

gta_manic2871d ago (Edited 2871d ago )

all it showed was people playing the natal and clips of the what natal could possibly be. even the video showing the people playing natal doesn't actually show anything, either they are focusing screen or person never both unless the camera is far enough away. the only time they have it so both player and screen at a good distance, the angle it so the person blocks most of the screen

GameOn2871d ago

Shirly, you can't be serious!

Oh she's serious alright ;)

Erotic Sheep2871d ago

You know, in dutch "Dom" means stupid... just saying >.>

Cold 20002871d ago (Edited 2871d ago )

Nah that aint true the only "innovators" are Sony.

Come on man the Wii-Move is R-E-V-O-L-U-T-I-O-N-A-R-Y !!!!! Man did you see that precision...that incredible accuracy...

Wii-Move = innovative...completely revolutionary....

Natal = bu...bu...MS copied Sony !! wahhh wahhh

/s

AlexeiBorodin2871d ago

Natal is truly one of the greatest pieces of technology innovation and far more important than work on global warming stuff - just please Microsoft let fatties join the party!!!

Icing on the cake I shouldn't have downed in one I expect!!

gta_manic2871d ago

I'm not sure what your post was trying to accomplish but i suspect i was and imitation of a retarded fanboy. i can only agree that your post is correct on the accuracy and precision of the Move and that neither of the motion controls are revolutionary and that copying a design and improving upon it is the staple of progress.

Mike134nl2871d ago

probably not so much for the hardcore gamers

Cold 20002871d ago (Edited 2871d ago )

Wow...completely agree with you. Both devices are improvemnts on older tech. I was actually waiting for some stupid fanboy to try to prove that Wii-Move is revolutionary like in a nother Natal article. Oh well too bad :)

off topic: this article got posted at the same time but nobody gives a damn http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News...

Just found it funny :)

DOMination2871d ago

Yeah, nobody cares about Playstation Move or it's 40 accessories. It was awful when it was called 'Wiimote & Nunchuck' and the addition of a giant sphere isn't fooling anyone.

Yeah no 1 cares about the move huh

Seeing as how both DOM and Cold are delusional and have horribly short attention spans, I figured they needed a good dose of reality. No one cares about Move huh? You must not subscribe to Game Informer. This month's issue had an article about Move. Did Natal get an article? Nope. Why? Because MS isn't trying to show us anything.
