and i think you really need a big room like that, stupid natal.
still not seeing any thing special.

Cevapi882635d ago

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

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.

Natal games have actually been around for quite a while. We just didn't see the connection:

Of course you may not mind how you look when you are having fun but be prepared for the results as this video demonstrates.

krisq2635d ago

WTF is this? I can't believe people here are actually liking what they are seeing.

If someone sees me EVER make fool out of myself like these people are doing, i demand to be executed!

R2D22635d ago

buying Move.

Let me guess you holding a black long stick with a ball on the front while pretending to be a sword fighter does not make you look like a tool.

Both Natal and Move suck balls - the controller FTW!!!!

IdleLeeSiuLung2635d ago

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....

rob60212635d 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.

fryday2635d ago (Edited 2635d ago )

Did you know that this can be a serious psychological issue?

Bigpappy2635d ago

Everytime I read something you write, I always wonder why you keep make an a$$ of yourself. I'll pass on the offer to finish you off though. That would make me a bigger fool than you.

HolyOrangeCows2635d ago (Edited 2635d ago )

Move Sam! Darn it, Sam! They're paying us a lot to pretend to have fun, NOW FREAKING MOVE SAM!

So disgustingly obvious. Stick to B-level TV actors for this crap, MS.

boodybandit2635d ago (Edited 2635d ago )

I'm sorry but that was flat out embarrassing to watch. I cant believe this is the direction MS is heading in gaming.

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.)

morganfell2635d ago

No wonder Robbie Bach was fired...and was glad to be given the boot. I can just see Steve Ballmer at jerking around.

Im sorry you would look like a window licker playin that game lol

FanboysWillHateMe2635d ago

When they should be focusing on whether it's fun or not? It looked like they were having a good time, isn't that what counts?

weazel2635d ago

.."should be focusing on whether it's fun or not" Yup, just like pulling fat chicks, it's all fun until someone you know sees you.

FragMnTagM2635d ago

Too bad irrationality runs rampant here.

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.

Pennywise2635d ago

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.

-Alpha2635d ago (Edited 2635d 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.

Milamber2635d ago

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.

zoks3102635d ago

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.
