@THC CELL

THC CELL2660d ago

B-roll: Eye Toy is 3d so next

If Natal plays like the film gamer in fps that would be a step up

dangert122660d ago

it is floors up never mind step up

presto7172660d ago

Stupid. I'm sorry to hurt anyone's feeling, but its true. Look at the woman that passed by at 0:13

She was probably thinking "WTF are these idiots doing?"

I dont want anyone thinking that about me.

R2D22660d ago

I like the fact that 3 bubbles would make people think twice about posting garbage, but bad for the people who actually want to talk about games - I guess the good have to suffer for the bad.

edgeofblade2660d ago

"Eye Toy is 3d so next"

That is incorrect, misinformed, or an outright lie.

Cevapi882660d ago

if we see hundreds of gamers doing this at E3, i will be sadly disappointed

Bigpappy2660d ago (Edited 2660d ago )

Next: I will look Kool and Sexy playing Natal because I am a Kool and Sexy guy. If you doubt me ask your sister (I'll send her a PIC with no shirt). Natal is not about how you look, a little plastic surgery and a diet coke should thake care of that. Attually, Natal should be great for fitness games, so it might help you in that department too. E3 people. These article just help fuel the hype.

Firstly, Natal -and move- are both pointless, not because they are bad or cost too much it's because they are ADD-ONS!

Pretend for a moment your a publisher, let's say EA, and a studio comes to you and say we have this idea for a game, but we don't know what to do.

Full Natal support, which means a tiny market (compared to 360), extra devloping costs when porting to PS3/MOVE. Plus it'll take longer BECAUSE we have to learn how to use it and even then the tech is new so the controls won't be great
No Natal support, we carry on as it is right now, no fuss, no extra costs. EASY to port.

BU...bu... Natal and Controller support I hear you cry.
If it support Natal and Controller then having Natal cannot provide a big advantage and thus serves no purpose... making the $100+ add-on pointless. If Natal has a big advantage then controller only people won't be happy and probably not play the game and then in that situation you should have made it Natal only.

Also I've yet to see Natal work online? Anyone else heard or seen it online because if Natal can't support online for what ever reason then it really is going to be VERY pointless on 360 who's big selling point IS live.

mrv3212660d ago

So anyone care to explain why I got 5 disagrees? What did I say that was incorrect? Because as far as I'm concerned clicking disagree and not saying why is hardly a good retort now is it? Maybe I mentioned move, maybe I used logic.

Mafia2Rules1232660d ago

You probabably got the disagrees because you are saying that Natal will fail just because it's an add-on.
If its cheap and has fun games to play with it then I think it will sell very well.
Also Guitar Hero would be nothing without add-ons and they are very succesful.

Anon73492660d ago

Yeah, because 100$ add-ons tend to not sell well like Guitar hero, Rock Band, Wii Fit, Wii Motion Plus, ect

I'm positive that Natal and the Move will sell millions, there will be a big market for both games... and a game including Natal or Move would even sell MORE than it normally would without it.. If there's a family that wants to buy a game, are they going to buy the "normal game" or that new game that comes with the Move, or that game that includes Move/Natal support so they can play it on their new device?

Also, Sony/M$ will get developers to make games for their devices so there will be games on both and I already know the Move includes games for both the Casual Audience and the Core Audience for the more experienced gamers.

I can debunk your hole comment because it's full or flaws and misconceptions but I'd rather not. Now you know why you have twice as much disagrees as you have agrees.

sid4gamerfreak2659d ago

Motion controls r gonna fail, the move and natal will fail.

The winner = keyboard mouse and controller

eyetoy is a 2D webcam but the eye is 3d

IdleLeeSiuLung2660d ago

Please explain how PS Eye is 3D....

claterz2660d ago

@IdleLeeSiuLung
I didn't think the PS eye needed to be 3D, It tracks the Move controller which means it has depth perception in 3D space. right?? =/

Microsoft Xbox 3602660d ago

Yes. The way the Move tech is built, you won't need a 3d cam. A Move controller plus a standard PSEye can detect depth just fine.

Jack Klugman2660d ago (Edited 2660d ago )

eye reads X+Y+Z space.. but still it is nothing like Natal which is doing true 3d full body tracking with true depth of field.

dont get me wrong i am not defending that glorified web cam at all.

edhe2659d ago

How does it read 3d then, as a simple camera without steroscope or depth perception?

It.. doesn't..

it needs move to let the ps3 calculate depth.

What's new? They're demonstrating Natal out someplace foreign again.

waltercross2659d ago

I Was gonna say something about that to, why there?.

xTruthx2660d ago (Edited 2660d ago )

They only showed 30 secs of them using it and then below they have the fake video :/. If you think its not fake then you must look again, if you look at it. It doesn't even have 1.1 lag or anything, its perfectly timed. Be honest... doesn't it feel like their trying to fool people ?

lowcarb2660d ago

I've found that people look stupid holding control pads as well. I think the whole you look stupid thing comes from the dance games. Natal will be fine and once it hits other products then people will love it and understand.

DatNJDom812660d ago

the same thing.... WHACK SOME BALLZZ!

inveni02660d ago

"Easy to learn how to best approach hitting the ball"

That quote tells me that Natal doesn't feel natural, and that you have to "adapt" to its problems (lag, etc) in order to have a decent experience. Translation: Things don't look good for Natal.

Stay away from natal and eye toy cam

Remember both cameras have face recognition and the storage data is shared with people non related with the video game industry just like Facebook, My Space and many others.

Fnck both!!!

THIS technology can go to hell. NOT BUYING THIS STUFF!

THE NSA IS ON THIS SH1T! BIG BROTHER IS BEHIND ALL THIS.

WHY THE HELL DO YOU WANT A CAMERA THAT CAN BE USED TO TRACK YOU AND HAVE A FACIAL AND BODY IMAGE RECORD MEMORIZED in a data storage?

SOON TVS ARE GOING TO HAVE a mini CAMERA just like apples i macs

WHY? FOR WHAT?

edhe2659d ago

To find out who your mum is and ... stuff.

harrisk9542660d ago

"The game is also pretty forgiving so you usually hits the ball even if it is a little too late or too early in its kind."

Isn't this called "lag"?

vhero2660d ago

Wow I knew people would look sill playing NATAL I didn't think they would look that silly.. I guess if your in your own home it's not so bad however that could still turn off people.

benandlol2659d ago

The sheer irony of that statement brings tears to my eyes.

pixelsword2659d ago

you can't judge a whole system just upon one game that may yet still be merely a demo.

They look like idiots. I didn't like EyeToy and Natal is just as stupid. No way in Hell am I buying this crap.
