How Natal In 2010 Is Similar To PS3 In 2006

PlayStrum writes: "History is a funny thing. It can repeat itself, look as if it's about to repeat itself (but never does) and even resemble past icons in both positives and negatives. Lately, there has been much talk about Microsoft's Project Natal. This sudden spark of interest was ignited with the piping-hot rumor about Natal costing upwards of $150 at retailers when it launches. Since then, there has been no official word from Microsoft neither confirming nor denying these rumors. The absence of any debunking has led to even more articles discussing the possible success or failure of Project Natal. To us, this seems all too reminiscent of a time when Sony was to launch the PlayStation 3. Here are some similarities that struck us the most."

yea but the ps3 turned out good, natal never will.

hoops3035d ago (Edited 3035d ago )

Because you're a Sony fanboy and can read into the future. If Natal was out for the PS3 you would be siging it praises.

Edit below:

Sorry I forgot about the Eyetoy...tell me when it can render in Z space.....
And I think we all should wait until E3 before people bash it...but this is N4G.COM.....

stephmhishot3035d ago

the ps eye is already out dep dep dep


ShinMaster3035d ago (Edited 3035d ago )

Not PS2's EyeToy. He's talking about PS3's PS-Eye.
And yes, it can. It all depends on the software.

"If Natal was out for the PS3 you would be siging it praises"

That is, if Sony were dumb enough to release something so shallow.

chaosatom3035d ago

Either developers will use it as a Eyetoy or make some casual game to make a quick buck.

Right now, I see a lot of innovative games for Move than Natal. I know that E3 is coming soon, but my judgement is like that for now. Also $150 price tag is a bummer.

sid4gamerfreak3034d ago

and guess what the PS Eye is a ripoff on? Go on guess...

hint: its from sega for the dreamcast

Biggest hypocrites of this generation = ps3 fanboys

And I thought the xbox 360 fanboys were the worst...

Listen, before u jump and say im a xbox 360 fanboy because thats the usual immature reaction in n4g, im not planning to get natal at all. Im not willing to pay for a system that has almost no games, lag and an overpriced tag on it.

ShinMaster3034d ago

Never said they were the first to do it, chill.

Very meaty article. Good read.

@MAGNUM-RAM- I have no idea what that has to do with this article so I took one of ur bubbles under "Off-topic". Just letting you know so you don't make the same mistake in the future.

niceguywii603035d ago (Edited 3035d ago )

Meaty article based on paranoid opinions derived from a rumor. lol

You PS3 fanboys and your worrying is comical. The only people bothered by the rumored price are PS3 fanboys lol. Making wild predictions based on a rumor that no ones knows anything about if true. That rumored price could be a bundle with unannounced accessories and games.

DaTruth3035d ago

Did you just call Deadreckoning a PS3 fanboy? You couldn't be more off!

kanetheking3035d ago (Edited 3035d ago )

Zydake3035d ago

Are you the N4G police? Cause you arrived way too late random comments have been around for a while so to that I take your bubble for being late to the scene, investigator.

fishd3035d ago (Edited 3035d ago )

You should be really naive to believe,even for a second,that Natal is going to be priced at $149

Hallmark Moment3035d ago (Edited 3035d ago )

Probably the best plain and simple comment relating to this damage control rumor I've read yet. Yes this rumor is being used as a damage control tool used to try and change the tone negatively towards the device. I'm pretty sure most people with a brain would know a company would not price a peripheral just shy of the console's price unless it was part of a blockbuster Bundle or what was shown for the product package was incomplete when it comes to what it came with.

jack_burt0n3035d ago

wait a second how is it damage control to state facts:

Natal uses a 3d IR multi lense multi microphone on board cpu setup that is expensive to manafacture, people are giving estimates of the value of the technology ffs.

PS move is a bluetooth controller with a couple of gyros and a light up ball on the end the camera has been in manfacture for 3 years and is readily available for £15. Most of the calculations are done in software.

Natal is more expensive than move.

Sheikh Yerbouti3035d ago (Edited 3035d ago )

I think two Move controllers with analog controller will cost more than Natal. $149 doesn't seem so much in comparison.

boodybandit3035d ago

Why would you need two Move controllers?
2nd how can you speculate what something is or isn't worth when we know next to nothing about these devices or the games being released for them?

Sheikh Yerbouti3035d ago

You will need two controllers if a friend wants to play.

I can speculate because the Move is indicated at being under $100. With the PSEye about 30-40 dollars. I'm thinking the Move will be priced similarly to the DualShock. Throw in the analog controller for FPS. That's about $160.

With Natal you just need that long ass camera.

"You should be really naive to believe,even for a second,that Natal is going to be priced at $149"

You're completely right, its not like microsoft ever charges exorbitant amounts for their peripherals. The wi-fi was around $100, the HD was around $120... oh wait...

You've got to be a bit naive to think that microsoft wouldn't charge this price for natal, i mean, hopfully its more advanced than a wi-fi adapter or a hard drive :)
