Nothing not gonna get it.

It means I'm going to have to listen to these whiney b*tches for a while yet proclaiming it's a failure even before it's released... As I said in another thread, we don't know the real deal with natal (or move) yet, so why do you need to keep disregarding them when you haven't experienced them yet, it just makes you guys look like morons.

cyborg69712854d ago

Not into waggle, that's all it is for me. Also the fact that they have shown us nothing besides balls flying at you which would be fun if I was like five years old. What I don't get is hardcore gamers backing this crap. Because it's quite obvious that it is in no way shape or form catered to you.

Natal = Eyetoy I have it seen what it can do and really the best purpose I found for it is a webcam/mic. Move ya its just a wii-mote but I dont have a wii and main reason why is because their games are mostly shovewlware and on last gen technology.

Natal is either going to be cheap so that I can use it for all of the little, non-casual game applications, or I say screw it. I'm not going to spend even $100 for things like Ricochet, and they certainly aren't about to revolutionize the way games are played, as much as they'd want us to think, the lack of input won't allow it to. And adding a controller to the mix defeats its entire purpose, and then you may as well play with Move, now wouldn't you?

I fall into the Hardcore category that the article mentioned and they're right. I'm much more interested in Gears 3 and Halo Reach than I am Natal. The idea of ordering around my squad with without a headset doesn't matter to me, nor does speaking to the characters on screen. Personally, the idea of talking to my video games seems kinda sad to me. It's like talking to your GI Joes.

The idea of head tracking to pan the camera around, that's something I could get into but that being said, it's not worth $150 to me. I don't think I'd pay any more than $20 for head tracking. It would be kind of cool, but little more than a novelty for me, and it's not like every single game is going to support head tracking all of a sudden.

I'm interested in what Microsoft will show at E3 as I'm curious as to what all the hypes about, but cameras have been around for years. I'm sure there's good reason why Sony and Nintendo both passed on this technology but for the life of me I can't understand why there's so much hype about this. It's a camera, people! I played breakout with a webcam 15 years ago, and it was entertaining for all of about 75 seconds. I just don't understand why the gaming media is so gaga over this.

There is no magic or mistery to your statement: "I just don't understand why the gaming media is so gaga over this." It is actualyy quite simple to me.

SOAD2854d ago

Considering you spent 900 dollars to repair and replace your consoles, I'd also put you in the tool category.

Anon19742853d ago

As an early adopter, I think I've spent about $900 on my 360 in general, but not to repair or replace. I spent $500 on the console when it came out and then between the wi-fi adapter(which I needed when I bought my new house), extended warranty from Microsoft, extra controller, charge and play kits, more charge kits when they stopped holding a charge, 2 years of XBL before I called it quits - that added another $400 to the console.

I did pay an additional $340 on top of that - the first time when my 360 died after it's original 90 day warranty and the second time when it died after the 1 year warranty Microsoft originally extended it to, but after a long battle with MS they finally refunded me that money back when they extended the warranty to three years.

Really though, other than personally attacking people around here, do you ever bother to post anything useful that might be of interest to gamers. What does your statement have to do with the discussion at hand? Why not join gamers in actual discussions about the industry? I'd be more than happy to debate my viewpoints vs yours if you ever wanted to talk about real issues. We're gamers, after all.

if i remove the ''L'' and replace it with a ''S''= natas
and if i mirror it=..... oh i see who they are working with
/its a joke

SixZeroFour2854d ago

and if you change satan to their numerical form its 19, 1, 20, 1, 14


:O the number, movie joke

boysenberry2854d ago

LOL I was going to post the exact same thing. BTW it's only $150 dollars!!

Hallmark Moment2854d ago (Edited 2854d ago )

It means PS3 fanboys think it sucks using attacks as a way of disguising fear, frustration, anger and worry. The rest of humanity says awesome device for new experiences and control of gaming and non gaming apps.

waltercross2854d ago

You cannot say that it is an awesome device without seeing much of it, That's called Blindness, I'm Skeptical, I want to see more of Natal before I say wether It's cool or it sucks.
