Project Natal Ricochet avatar select menu, Game play & there is a man playing as a girl at the end of the video.
Lmao look at these clowns lool hey bots this is your future ...CLOWNS!!!
No. The future is a glowing Dildo :)
Its been 1 year since E3 and natal isnt improving much, It took damn long for the character selection screen to work and thats in a room with almost no light, and the delay is pretty damn obvious in this video. If this is the future then bring back the past and present.
We dont need to know you like dildos that was always pretty obvious.
That so called dildo is more accurate has less lag and has actually shown more than 1 game. Which is much more than I can say for Natal.
@ironed sheet MOVE has showed more because its been around for 3 years.its called the nintendo wii.maybe you have heard of it? ps..who the hell keeps givin you bubbles?!! your other account i guess
Speaking of Nintendo didn't they pass on the Natal tech just like Sony did? "MOVE has showed more because its been around for 3 years.its called the nintendo wii.maybe you have heard of it?" Maybe if you didn't make idiotic statements like that you would have more bubbles.
Come on Iron Sheik. You know as well that MS is holding Natal close to their chest. Don't play dumb, you know MS will be showing a lot at E3. Heck they have a conference all just for Natal alone.
I think they are showing off Natal in LA now. still seem to have game play delay and the menu can use some work.
I sure hope they don't think that is going to be "it." Microsoft, you have some 'splainin to do!
Haven't seen the video yet but was that rarest of natal games, 'ricochet' in the video? Cos I really want to see more of ricochet. I feel it isn't getting enough media coverage /SARCASM
hope they showcase ricochet at E3. maybe a ricochet booth with ricochet babes
I haven't seen enough of ricochet, and I know most of us still wants to see more ricochet. I bet ricochet will be showed again in E3. I mean, ricochet seems to be the flagship of this new technology. lol
I can't notice any lag. There are 2 people playing and no lag. This is getting interesting. I also notice that they selected and started the game by just pointing. Did you notice how they just moved the pointer on the screen to select the profiles for who will be playing? M$ seems to be delivering. Come on E3! 6 more weeks to go before we see what they came up with.
this is getting very old. appearently meny devs except one dont care for this tech. EDIT: i still see lots of lag
WARNING: You're going to want to mute the video. Who the heck picked that music? That said, it's time for us to put a freeze on Ricochet videos. Seriously, it's time to ban posts that are just a Ricochet video.
http://i44.tinypic.com/33u8... @Chubear that's me playing the boxing game from a few years ago when I was getting fat lol. look at the name then look at the name of the person who posted the Natal video! lol
I haven't seen such an innovative and original game since 3D Dot Heroes. I don't know what they call it, but big red balls are definitely the biz!
but dam the hate for NATAL is strong.
till tomorrow to see the news where there will be new footage of the ricochet with a new BLUE coloured balls.
sony showed multiple games at TGS like LBP and resident evil5. they showed multiple games at GAMESCOM on a video. they showed multiple games at CES by showing things like eyepet. they showed multiple games at GDC and put out the name and the final controller build. for a company that showed their tech "SECOND",they seem to be putting out actual game demonstrations and videos "FIRST."as a ps3 fan,i knew sony would push it back.it was just common sense without marketing and games to back up a spring launch. but at least they are showing their tech and taking the criticism and praise to make it better like a beta.microsoft is showing nothing and will just patch later without public and developer input at GDC.
@MajestieBeast- I didn't see any "obvious" delay, seems no more "obvious" than the delay associated with both wii and move motion controls. @whateva- thats stating the obvious, sure it still needs some work, its not due out until fall 2010 @Shadow Flare- so basicly you're sick of Natal Ricochet news, yet the title of this news piece begins with "Project Natal Ricochet:"; So why are you here? oh that's right, you had something interesting to say about Ricochet. I'm pretty sure microsoft will show something other than Ricochet at this little known gaming event just around the corner called E3, for some strange reason every year new products/games are revealed here; I think last year they debuted Natal itself at E3 /SARCASM. hmmm, ClownBelt, Redrum059 same comment. @Chubear- Are you serious? #1 If you can't see that Natal is on a different level than whats shown in the video then its probably useless even responding #2 Although Ricochet surpasses whats shown in those vids, the whole interest behind Natal is NOT Ricochet type party games, its the potential of what Natal tech can bring to more hardcore experiences, starting in the fall with Fable3, which neither the Live Vision Camera, Eye Toy, PS Eye ever really made a serious attempt to do. Again the vids you showed were on par with the Live Vision Camera stuff like this for example: http://www.youtube.com/watc... if you can't see any difference in potential thats fine, I disagree but either way I'd rather wait to see what microsoft will produce in late 2010 into 2011 before I pass judgement. @R2D2- yeah the people that hate Natal the most, seem to follow Natal news the more than the folks like me who are genuinely interested in seeing if Natal will offer anything worthwhile. @Apocalypse Shadow- Sony has shown demo's of move, Socom was nice but so far nothing has been really impressive, oh and neither has this Ricochet demo, YES the tech is cool, how it recognizes the players, minimal lag, hands free, low light= shows potential for other gaming experiences that devs like Kojima, Molyneux, Cliffy B. etc have talked about but NO the Ricochet game itself is still just your basic party stuff that you probably won't touch at home by yourself after a week like many of the wii stuff I brought my daughter. So essentially with neither company showing "impressive games" that leaves both companies in the same position. Bigpappy made a fair point, Sony is the one who announced their motion control stuff for Spring 2010, NOT microsoft, therefore you would think Sony should be further along with move, then when you also figure that microsofts direction with Natal is a lot less predictable vs move which seems to be an improvement on wii, I think logically there's a greater learning curve for Natal controlled type of motion games. Natal is not due till fall, so why the rush before E3 to show their cards, NO they want the surprise factor at E3 so I don't see why they would give that up and show anything other than Ricochet before E3. Let me ask you this question, forget about whether or not whatever they show at E3 will be good or suck, but Do you really think they will come to E3 with just a Ricochet game? lol
LBP and RE5 demos were both rush jobs. They were doing the me too thing. M$ was showing half a$$, shoe horn demos (Burnout and katamari or what -ever that is-). So Sony decided to Shoe horn also. The problem with Sony is that they were pushing this stuff out there and it ended up loosing some potential attention, because the tech was not ready. They were using a DS3 with a move in both demo's. Looking back now, you should be able to see that they were really not ready. M$ cot Sony unprepared to show what they were working on. After Natal was getting so much buzz, they needed to respond and that was the result. They were thinking that they had to get something out there by Spring because they thought M$ was further along than they were letting on. What they are showing now with the complete set is better than what they showed with those shoe horn games. M$ knew Burnout was half-A$$, that is why they are waiting for E3. No need for the 360 fans to loose patience and at as though they have to wait for Natal to start playing great games. There are plenty games to play until Natal launch. No need for people like "Chubear" to keep crying about showing game, when M$ as give a full day and date for the showing. People like him aren't even planing to but the thing. They just want to see unfinished games so they would have something new to complain about.
The difference is that Move & Wii actually has game applications up and running. You can pretend the Move isn't impressive, but then I know full well you're not impressed by Natal, so I dont even have to ask. Natal has won invention of the year awards, innovation awards, and so much other hype yet its shown absolutely nothing besides a ricochet demo. Great, be innovative. But what about games? There are none to show. On a gaming site, games matter. When Bungie said they wont be doing Natal for Reach, 100% of the 360 community on this site/gamespot/neogaf said "GOOD WE DONT WANT BODY CONTROLS FOR FPS GAMES ANYWAY!" which was a giant contrast from all the E3 hype with natal and everyone pretending how amazing it was going to be to fight the covenant with your bare hands. Now theres talk of scanning in plates and brooms to use as guns? Even then, the buttons? I hate how people are so harsh on the Wii & Move yet overlook the fact that its a smoke and mirror show with Natal. Sure we can speculate about what Microsoft is going to do at E3, but why bother? We all know what the limitations of controless motion versus having buttons is. Anything Natal/Full Body is going to be swatting at targets/hit boxes/active areas on a screen. Thats literally the extent of it, and thats what has already been done by every webcam game in the world. Despite natals technology, when you factor in a GAME that relies on user input, there is only so much to do to get user input. Thats why we dont have 10000 buttons, as Atari found out. YOu only need so many to work the basic mechanics of gaming. I'll be the first one laughing off of my sanity when E3 rolls around and all we have is people flailing their arms at a screen for short 2 minute bursts. All MS can do is announce partnerships that Sony already has, and is already showing Demos of right now, including Wii titles that were excluded from Natal (wonder why). MS isn't smart. They copy then repeat. The only big shocks is copying Sony Franchises, and "stealing" games. Sony covers 3 consoles at E3, and shows exclusive content. And is pinned for losing since they didn't bribe Epic for a gears spin off. *yawn*
"4show, why not? They did last e3?" lol, and they will this E3. "Natal is Garbage, as is Move and Wii." Well, that's your opinion, I disagree but why does it seem YOU are trying to force your opinion down my throat? "But what about games? There are none to show." So now you work behind the scenes for microsoft/Project Natal development? Wow, but really theres no need to wonder or speculate, my majic 8-ball says microsoft won't show anything but Ricochet before E3 and there's no doubt they are not hosting a seperate E3 event for Natal just to show off a Ricochet game. Listen you mistake me for someone who thinks Natal is Gods Gift to Gaming, nah I just think it would be cool to execute a few ideas I have with the use of a standard controller and Natal in a game like Gears, thats all; You hope that, that never happens, I hope that it does. It's that simple really, I see move and Natal just as a added feature that could possibly make games a bit more immersive, which is why I don't understand why any gamer would be totally against hoping devs can achieve something great with motion controls, but even with all the amazing success of the wii as an example, dev's are still going to continue to deliver amazing hardcore games with traditional controls, so WHY THE FEAR?, theres NOTHING to suggest its a threat to traditional control scheme for games, so why bother the folks who are interested in other options with your constant negativity. lol, the worst thing that could happen is that move, Natal, motion controls all flop hard and then my Natal ends up collecting dust like my wii does. I'll simply just continue playing ALL the great games that I have now, yet I won't regret buying Natal, because although the wii collects dust the majority of time in my house, wii-sports alone has delivered me, my daughter, family and friends some priceless fun together, I just don't love it enough to play a daily round of wii-boxing by myself. My 360 and ps3 are my main sources of gaming entertainment but my family won't touch them, which is fine, *IF Natal or move happen to bring something new to the table for us all then thats even better. You laugh, I game. Why so critical of microsoft there at the end of your post?, "MS isn't smart. They copy then repeat", what does "stealing games" really? and what does bribing Epic have to do with this thread? lol, I don't know where this came from on this topic but ALL these company's have faults. None of them love their customers, they care about money but its just in a fanboys nature to only see the good in the company he prefers and the bad in the one he doesnt.
oh come on im sick of these videos. Show me a new game for natal, please...
At the end I was waiting for someone to kick the TV...:p.
I'm glad they're showing a variety of different games.. In all seriousness though, I can see how this will appeal to the casual market... but that's about it. While enjoying this technology with a few buddies and some brews seems realistic, playing seriously in my "game room" (small at that) seems very far fetched.
Wow this looks so much fun! No way this is gonna be a failure... *cough* *cough*
In b4 wait for E3.
they must be showing these videos for a reason, either there is major lag and natal stinks or we will be highly suprised at how well it will actually work and all we have been seeing is old stuff. i truly hope so.
Can never get enough of this AAA GOTY app. Please Microsoft, show me more ball slapping, and nothing else, ever. I'm no fan of the Move, but at least Sony's been showing it running with different games. At TGS last year, before it even had an official name, they demoed it running with Resident Evil 5 and LBP. Microsoft just keeps doing these backroom Ricochet demos with pseudo-celebrities.
it looked retarded with Kudo Tsunoda.and it still looks like a shovelware game now.at least it LOOKS better.maybe kids will enjoy it.that's the only audience for this game. if natal is going to succeed somewhat,it needs games like kickball: http://www.youtube.com/watc... soccer challenge http://www.youtube.com/watc... ok,for real http://www.youtube.com/watc... awesome save.EA,get that done. some handball http://www.youtube.com/watc... some jai alai http://www.youtube.com/watc... first person fighting http://www.youtube.com/watc... i mean really.show something other than this same boring red ball game.
and he knocks the dog sh*t out that ball.
This game is so stupid. The balls are coming so fast that you won't be able to get them all. They are also huge so you're gonna get random balls hitting your leg or body part unintentionally and score free points. What's the fun in that? You pretty much just stand there and see who gets more points. LOL Dumb crap game. Any motion type game is garbage but its so sad that this will sell like crazy due to the moronic casual gamers.
Now we know what ChavBots&ModBots get up to on xBox LIVE!!! ;-D
and we all know where MOVE will end up.or end up inside..
I dont know what you do with game controllers but i use them to play games not to shove them up my ass. I dont wanna judge you but thats f*cked up and you should keep it to yourself to avoid weird looks.
If that's what you want to do with move wrathboy then have at it. Just don't blame Sony for your trip to the emergency room.
Another way of exercising without using a controller. Some will just get the game to exercise instead of going to the gym.
I cant wait to see it working in a slower game, like a RPG, interaction with the environment could go to whole new levels, spell casting and sword fighting too That game is garbage, that is all
There are actually people here that are stupid enough to think MS has only Ricochet lined up lol For me though the biggest concern is the lag that is still very clearly showing.It could be older tech though so until E3 we just wont know
What else have they shown? They could show just one more game. I'm sure they can spare on more game before E3. Red Balls are boring.
I don't know what you want but natal is not going to have zero lag. Nothing has zero lag. PS3 and 360 controllers have lag. Keyboards and mice have lag. Its just easier to see lag when you are moving full body parts instead of your fingers.
these videos are mostly leaked videos, if it was up to MS they wouldn't want you to see anything at all no point complaining about something you weren't meant to see anywa
Until then we will only get fillers Fable 3 could be the first serious one and some Rareware title probably
Hope is a hell of a drug.
NATAL= NOT AT ALL. i wont hate on natal but i dont understand the whole natal movement of people saying that itll be amazing and try to not make it seem like it isnt like the eyetoy. to each his own but natal doesn't look enticing at all, but im happy some people will love it. it was silly for microsoft to waste millions on adverts and celebrities to try to tell people that natal is amazing. ive never seen natal do any talking in the gameplay department other than some paid celebrities telling people how amazing it is. i remember seeing natal being demoed on some late night talk show and that charlatan who revealed natal at E3 and failed at showing the bottom of his shoe was telling the host that they didnt need to have orange jump suits on which they did have on to play natal. natal im sure will do some good things for gameplay but is being made out to be more than what it is. i cant wait for E3
Also is completly hands free, if they can get it to work right will be the ultimate control system actually, imagine you DONT need to hold a thing in your hands, but you are 100% free to do as you please, that is huge in my book, and a million times ahead of anything i see from Wii / PS3
To be even more precise the company responsible for developping Natal (which is a motion sensing software that can be implemented to any depth-sensing camera) is the same repsonsible for the co-developpment of the Eyetoy with Sony : Gesturetek. At that time (8 years ago) Z-camera were pretty expensive that's the reason why Sony decided to go with 2D camera instead.
As most comment above the only natal demo is richocet and burnout. Bu bu but far more advance no lag!!!
360 = Natal PS3 = what the hell is that vibrator thing called again?
FANBOI.LOL NAH SERIOUSLY UR A SAD ASS FANBOI DUDE
