1st high quality images of the new Project Natal Ricochet demo and for the 1st time you can see the avatars in multiple colors.
and see that the avatars can be more than one color. and why are they trying to hide the Camera we already seen it lol. Edit: am I the only one that see that Big PlayStation Move Controller behind that white box? lol
Won't see anything new till E3...same demo's over and over...E3 in June...Read somewhere that one whole day dedicated to Natal...will have to wait and see...
.. MS just has to show ANYTHING other than this game at E3 for Natal and it'll be deemed a success.
Is it me or does it seem like the avatar has the same colored clothing as the person playing? At least from the pictures where we are able to see color on the avatar. If so, it would be pretty cool if Natal can recognize your clothing color and automatically setup your avatar.
It's smart of MS not to play their cards before E3 like Sony has done. Makes the suspense and impact much bigger. The buzz and expectations for the Natal showing at E3 will be much bigger than that of Move.
yeah...anything that MSFT shows that is not Ricochet will be a "WOW, they stole E3!!!"... feeding up people with the same and then making them happy by showing something new...psychology is called... Good for them!
@Idle - No it's not, scroll down the page and you'll see different colours and different clothes, so it is recognising the person, but not the clothes. I agree with everyone, MS needs to show another game already, this Ricochet game looks like it will get boring very quickly, but I'm sure E3 will have a lot of announcements.
There's a picture where two avatars are on screen, two players will be pretty cool.
That game with two players will only result in someone getting accidentally slapped, kicked, or punched... and countless youtube videos of the carnage. Can't wait :]
Do you honestly believe that Sony has showed all of it's cards yet? Lol. Do you think that Sony is new to this whole "video game" thing? Do you seriously believe Sony is going to walk into E3, the biggest video game industry show, without a few cards up it's sleeve? Do I really need to remind you that Sony has been in the video games industry longer than Microsoft? Soda, soda, soda. You poor delusional thing. That's okay, E3 will make it all better for you. OT: Ricochet?! Again? I'm really trying to keep an open mind about Natal, but this doesn't help. Where's the feedback from developers? Where's the list of games?
Can they please stop putting "new" in front of these articles about Natal and the balls in the face game. thank-you
You guys need to stop complaining and speculating about Natal, it will be ready for E3 and its' release, Mircosoft would not release something half made.
They have customised avatars in the program, instead of the blue male and female avatars we've already seen. EDIT: Ooh, a disagree. Guess I must be seeing things. 5 here too huh... Surely it's not the same pers- No, couldn't be.
All the comments be soon flooding in saying, "Show something new, we are fed up with the same demo over and over." Im well excited for E3, in fact if there were a ton of Natal demos already I wouldnt be so looking forward to E3. E3 is where we can all make up our minds about Natal. E3 is only a few months away, consider it just LAG....
I watched a wild life documentary and some people wanted to lure the hyenas away from an area so they tied a piece of animal carcass to their van, drove off and the hyenas chased them for over a mile before they stopped.That is how a Natal article is to them.The only difference is that as the Hyenas stopped chasing after a mile, theses ones keep chasing for months none stop.
So Natal is like a dead animal beaten over the head a thousand times? I enjoy your simile.
But c'mon guys, your going on almost a year, with only 1 demo? Either Natal is trully gonna show its package at E3, or something aint right at the 360 division at M$ HQ.
What's the point of speculating, then based on that making assumptions? Just wait and make up your mind... if you already made up your mind then you just found your inner fanboy. If you don't like motion technology and DON'T think you are a fanboy, then what you are you doing in a Project Natal article about Ricochet in the title?
1 year. Yet some people had no problem waiting 4 years for Killzone 2 and over 5 years for GT5. I have no problem waiting a month or two with that in mind.
This is Natal, a hardware device that in some sense can be treated as a new console. Think about it, how would M$ or Sony look announcing 360 or PS3 is in development and for the next year and a half all you see in 1 game being showed for the console. People would think, "where's the other games?" But if it was a game we were discussing then yes I would agree with you, but then again not all people are patient. Alan Wake fell off the face of the planet until more news was brought up about it last year. To be honest, I almost forgot what Alan Wake was, same as Killzone 2, but not GT5 because prolouge released.
In some of the shots the actions of the user seem slightly off in comparison with the avatars. this could of course be due to the speed at which the photo's taken, but in particular the second with with the kid; the avatars arm is outstretched to its side but the kids is bent and his hands level with his head
It seems the taller you are, the further away you have to stand to play.
omg they have color now after almost a whole year...wow they really showing fast improvemnets /s lmao....
This game is going to reinvigorate the industry.
hilarious! +bubs good sir!
He is here to amuse us...and so let his will be done. A bright spot in my day when I get to see DOM make himself out to look like an idiot time and time again. Consistency, the key to life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
tired of seeing the same thing, it might have potential but we won't see anything else until E3. And why is everyone the same height? I guess it could be where they are standing, but still looks strange.
Looks like Natal will crush its competitors with this Ball game. /Sarcasm Its the only game available.They got no other games to preview. Belive me people Natal is in for a sure flop i can assure you that!
"New! Now with colored avatars!" *facepalm* Let's wait for E3 shall we.... Wait a minute... the Natal camera is just a cardboard cut out to hide the stuff inside it. LOL
lol Eyetal is still showing the same game again and again?? Also as for the lame comment about Ps Move lag, you don't even have to slow down Natal videos to see the lag, so we know that Natal is laggier, also that eurogamer footage is old now, lets just wiat till E3 ps move has been getting really good feedback reacently, not to mention it has shown more games lol and I can't wait!!
MS is better off letting the hype for Natal die completly until they bring it back at E3. Are we suppose to be impressed that they added multiple colours to an avatar? Yea they're deffinitly paving the way to a world of future gaming. And when will they stop with that bloody game. Look at that little girl (the one sitting), she doesnt even want to be there.
So far un-officially they have support for 2 players and support for using your own avatar. Neither are worthy of a center stage E3 announcement. I hope they have something big in store for E3, because Sony has already been hinting at big Move announcements
This sh!t is horrible. They keep showing the same wack a$$ game. If sony was showing this, people would be saying how bad move is. M$ really needs to show something else at E3. If they don't they will get laughed of the stage.
So stop clicking on the news that clearing says anything about Richochet.
Does natal track the childs wellies.
you see the camera rrod part2
MS finally discovered Colour They're only 40 years behind Sony Technology now
All you haters can just keep whining. If they've managed to bring the tech this far in the past year, just IMAGINE what the final product is going to be like!
Lol they brought what tech far ?? Eyetoy does everything natal can do and it was made like 7 years ago.
"You guys need to stop complaining and speculating about Natal, it will be ready for E3 and its' release, Mircosoft would not release something half made." I agree but to say MS would not sell a product half made is being delusional. I love the 360 library of games it has to offer but MS rushed the 360 knowing it had problems but did they give a crap? No anything to get a year head start over its rivals. No wifi, no charger kit for controller & not every 360 has a hdd. If thats not a half azzed product then I dont know what is. See I may love the games the 360 has to offer but im not going to be one of the MORONS that believe everything that MS says. This doesnt only imply to MS but also any other company that has a history of this, which brings us to Natal/Move/WiiMote. While MS keeps OVERHYPING Natal like it has already proved why it will change gaming with this same hit the ball video, Sony & Nintendo been showing off plenty of games using their tech & are both proving it works with many games to show.
I really hope at E3 that MS can blow my mind with Natal because if they dont, they will be a laughing stock not only to the media but also to those who were "HOPING" it would be true. If they do deliver then hats off to MS for not BSing about Natal & actually proving that they aint all talk & can walk the walk.
