Microsoft have dismissed claims that Project Natal will release this month, reiterating a fall 2010 release for the device.
Good. That other article was total boll*cks.
Don't just drink Microsoft's water so easily. Did you expect them to really say it's true?
They would have said "Microsoft does not comment on rumour or speculation" though...
That was fast
If you honestly expected them to release it this onth then you are reatrded. Sorry but face facts.
They say what they want to say dude. Saying what you just said would add fire to the fuel. Something I'm sure they don't want. Think of it.
It's pretty much every developer/publisher/platform holders doing though. If it's rumour, they give a don't comment, if it's untrue, they'll say it's untrue :)
Yeah you shouldnt trust microsoft, trust some girl at Gamestop and some dude that post comments on GameThirst instead...GTFO
Wishful thinking that it would release in a month! You would start seeing a lot more leaks through their supply chains with packaging and even the camera itself. Besides all that, it doesn't make any sense as MS will market the [email protected] out of the new name and make sure the world knows its coming before it does in MS fashion. They wouldn't change their plan on a whim like that, but I could see Sony do it. Primarily because they have shown so much of PS Move already and everything seems ready. The name is out, the games have been shown and some advertisements... not sure what else they need.
The rumor did get me thinking though. Would it have been far-fetched if MS did that? Regarding MS being ready though... who says they aren't? Just because they showed you and the rest of the media very little doesn't mean they haven't been working on the product backstage. The product seems ready if they've already sent devkits to developers. I am expecting MS to share more at E3, but I wouldn't say it's not ready just because we haven't seen much from MS. That's just how MS is controlling the product speculation. This "MS is not ready" stuff is just Natal Nay-Sayers trying to bury the product. We know nothing of Natal, so it's logically invalid to certainly conclude that it's the best ever or that it's not ready. I speculate that MS wouldn't have a product that has been sitting around doing nothing for the past year and MS surely would progress on it to keep their brand's reputation. However, their strategy just seems totally opposite to Sony's. Doesn't mean that they have nothing to show. Though, if at E3 they show nothing then I'll be worried, but that's unlikely to happen.
I'm not saying that MS isn't ready, but rather that the market isn't because MS has CHOSEN to not push (i.e. marketed) it out yet. MS has once stated that this is like a console re-launch, and one month to do so isn't realistic. I'm pretty sure MS will stick to their target date and plans. I also expect them to show some really cool stuff at E3 for Natal!!!
In the hell did you get a disagree with something called the "Truth" with another thing that compliments it called "Evidence"? Lol. @PhilipLarkin
couse they put what they have shown so far gainst the move they will fail large.
Welcome back Hallmark. You are the most consistent poster on N4G. Either way you look at it.. its not a bad thing. You can adore Natal(Wave) without the anti MOVE diatribe.. and be careful not to back yourself into a corner you could be parrying with the Move in 2011.
Oh and yeah movements just stfu. I just checked and you posted the other article. Btw if Gamesthirst is your site it's shit. kthnxbye
Gamesthirst Fake Rumor Fails Again
you were the one who approved gamer thirst's article,and then reported it wtf is wrong with you?
Gamesthirst is shit and movements who posted it can GTFO
LOLOLOLOLOL!!! Well, UserThree? Care to explain wtf is wrong with you?
Good. I don't want it this month or all summer for that matter. Holiday sounds perfect. Move is different so it shouldn't matter which releases to the public first.
This is just bull, Microsoft knows when they are going to release it! I bet it's going to be in November!
Hmmm...what gave you that idea?
Haha...can't let people be wrong on the Internet now can we? Doesn't mater to me when Natal releases. I don't plan on buying it anyway.
why are you following news about the thing then
It's been stated quite a few times that Natal will be released sometime in fall 2010. For a while it's been said that October will be the month. Anyway, I won't be buying it..
.. The reason why they responded so quickly instead of saying "Microsoft does not comment on rumours and speculation blah blah.." is because people would be anticipating the release announcement during E3 and a lot of people would have their hopes smashed.
I think it's the same thing in reverse to the $150 price rumor, that we all know it won't cost that much.. yet MS wasn't quick to correct that one.
This would be idiotic, I haven’t seen a single commercial about natal, MS needs to have a huge marketing campaign in order for natal succeeded but then we go back to the price, if natal is well price then it well sell good in the holiday season, no matter what the move does but I only see one way of things playing out, natal is shown to the media and they crazy for it but it doesn’t have a killer app while Sony shows the move with one killer app and they media again spits in Sony’s face and say natal is better and Sony is just too hardcore…
I am actually looking forward to Natal but I thought this was actually pretty funny. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
That's hilarious! Lol, "Thumbs up"
i was already dying from him doing a kamehameha, but when he tried to put another L and got O i fell out of the.chair with tears coming down lmfao! Hilarious!!!
Lol at 1:15! http://img594.imageshack.us... Funny video. I friend send me this, some people playing a shooter on Natal: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
It would make - a little more sense - to put it out shortly after E3 and in the glow of after-hype so they could then work any kinks out than to dump it on the Christmas crowd and have some major issue turn up.
It is better for Microsoft to sort the kinks about before launching Natal.
But that didn't happen, did it? And if MS makes the mistake of following old habits, then Natal's going to either have software issues, wont have the complete software suite as has been hyped and advertised, ie the UI, or worse, there will be hardware issues that weren't sufficiently put through QC that they will try to fix through software patches. Given that it is just an add-on, don't expect the public to be as forgiving as with RRoD if the last happens. No matter what compensation is offered.
