i can see how little kids could be excited by this...its clear in the video...but when you see the 2 adults and then both kids jump in and try to move around...the camera doesnt show the on screen action or if it is even capturing all of the movements.....what was awkward was the way Natal responded to the kids abrupt movements.....it looked weird to me....i really do hope these games have tutorials b/c the way that woman tried to play a simple game of bouncing balls was just..........uhhhhhh ill let you guys finish that sentence
bioshock1221  +   1411d ago
Why is it a failure?? The more I see of it the more I actually think it can succeed. Say whatever you want but they where having a lot of fun no matter how dumb they looked which makes it even more fun and funnier. Kids are going to be the ones who will really love this. Plus not everyone is going to move like that I think they were exaggerating a little with their movements. But they did look funny the mom especially.

People gotta start realizing natal is not being made for the "hardcore gamers' its being made for the "casual gamers" which I doubt any of you are seeing your responses. Why are so many fanboys in here.

And once you boot up Natal you will lose all semblance of a life, girlfriend, and a clue. Funny how that works out. Awesome video by the way. I can't wait to see the hardcore games that are sure to follow gems like these. Right guys? Hardcore games. The 360 boys promised me hardcore games.

Edit: But you have to admire the precision of the Natal. Any controller where the most efficient way to win the game is "Move more. Just keep moving around more" is bound to be the most precise and efficient controller on the market. I bet the best Gears of War 3 players, if it is graced with Natal controls, will be large dogs getting their ears scratched. It seems that a quick trigger leg kick is the best way to play.

If you are worry about how stupid you look in front of people when having fun then you probably have some self esteem issues that need to be worked out....
rob6021  +   1411d ago
The problem is the whole fun factor is based on the fact you're making a fool out of yourself. It is fun (especially with other people), but that get's old fast - there's a reason people put their wiis away in the closet.

Nobody said anything about Sony, except for your raging internal inferiority complex. That video was flat out horrific. Regardless of questions that it might have been actors or simply an overly excited test group guinea pig 'family', this isn't the promotional route that Natal should be heading in. (Assuming of course, that their grand plan isn't just to provide entertaining 'therapy' sessions in the 'play' room of the local nut-house.)

Pedo reach at 0:58 seconds.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, MS is aiming this towards casuals.

Penny, these are simple demonstrations. Very silly, yes, but you don't have to be so hell-bent on seeing Natal fail. I hope to see better games at E3 utilizing the technology, but right now we have nothing.

The best part is how the older guy is TRYING to sound happy but he sounds like a robot.

Anyways, I do see this succeeding with the casuals. Casuals don't see silly gameplay, they see family time and spending time with their kids in an active way. MS is going to advertise this well, the problem is showing games for us hardcore gamers.

Alpha if you think that looked fun than I don't know what to say. I own a PSeye, I know where this is heading. I'm not hell bent on failure because this is MS... I want this to fail because if this is the future of gaming I don't want to be a gamer.
-Alpha  +   1411d ago
I didn't say this looked fun ;)

However I was just reminding you that you shouldn't be so quick to judge-- yes, it's COMPLETELY silly and laughable, but saying anyone who defends Natal after this is mean-spirited. What that essentially does is make it look like anyone who defends Natal is a fanboy, which is unfair. Just saying you should stay open-minded towards others. All I'm saying is that MS is the kind of company to be tight-lipped about their work, and with E3 around the corner I am *hoping* they offer something for gamers like you and me. Right now they seem to be just focused on appealing Natal to the casual crowd. But surely they aren't stupid enough to ditch the hardcore crowd altogether.

But yeah, this particular demo was so silly. I would love to see someone gif this.

After seeing this I feel like this is going to fail as a casual device. They didn't look like they were having fun at all, the kids just looked bemused. Not to mention moronic.

However, I'm still very, in a naïve way, hopeful about what my favorite developers can do with this technology. I think hardcore games can really benefit from this, more so than with the wiimote or move.

I still play my games motion free, I tried the Wii and was utterly unimpressed with the technology. Just felt like a cheap lightgun to me. So I'd like to continue using my standard controller and have this motion (and voice) technology complement the experience rather than overhaul it.

But the devs will have to support it if it's going to be any use. I'm sure the novelty of navigating the dashboard with swipes will wear off fairly quickly.

At least the kids are having fun, and in my house that's all that matters.

Aside from that it looks like you have to move around way too much and i dont know about you guys but I'm not goin to invest into a video game that is going to make me jump all over the place like that, before i do that ill jump in my car drive a few blocks and go play in the park.

So how many people in n4g play their games that far away from the tv set? I assume you all have some kinda seating arrangement for your tv entertainment area. It'd be silly to have to move the sofa aside to play ricochet.

The good thing is they seem to be enjoying themselves. The silly thing is the adult asking the kid to join in when clearly the kids do not pop in as two additional avatars playing ricochet. Poor kids probably thought they were actually playing.

I remember when Nintendo first confirmed the name of Wii and we all laughed. The wii is now the number 1 console on the market thanks to all of us haters.Now Natal stands a chance to repeat the Wii madness and I for one will not go down this time looking like an idiot by doubting.

OT: That looked like pure family fun and hopefully the games live up at e3.
AAACE5  +   1411d ago
I'm starting to doubt Natal...
Natal requires you to move around alot! You might mess around and lose some weight or something crazy like that! I think I will stick with the Wii and PS Move. I can still sit on my ass and play games that way and if i'm lucky, I can lose a few pounds in my arms while my ass gets fatter...yay!

Be open minded people! All of your negative comments make it seem like you are scared of Natal or something! Calm down!

@claterz... She did look goofy as hell didn't she! I can see why people think they might look stupid playing with Natal, but truthfully i felt the same way playing the Wii. This motion coltroll thing is still fairly new and we will all look stupid playing either on, even the beloved MOVE!

Cause as of right now the only red ball in my motion gaming is Move's sphere turning red as I blow some fire down in Elder Scrolls V.

are you really going to care what you look like when you're playing? if the thing's fun, why does it matter. I'm not saying that it is fun because I've never played it, but saying that natal will fail because you look like a goof playing the game is unfair.

And I just find it so hilarious that so many ps3 "people" are raiding these natal posts so frequently just to downplay the device and promote the Move, which is just the wii-mote on a system with HD graphics. You'd probably find almost no 360 person in the Move posts downplaying something that they haven't even played or experienced.

Am impressed with the lag free nature of the item. Seems like there is a substantial and noticeable difference between today's vid and WSJ's vid posted yesterday(?)
