*FACEPALM* oooh soo much fail somebody has to make a funny youtube video about this
and i think you really need a big room like that, stupid natal. still not seeing any thing special.
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: http://www.youtube.com/watc... Of course you may not mind how you look when you are having fun but be prepared for the results as this video demonstrates.
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!
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!!!!
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....
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.
Did you know that this can be a serious psychological issue?
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.
arround 1:00 the lag its soo evident
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.
I'm sorry but that was flat out embarrassing to watch. I cant believe this is the direction MS is heading in gaming.
"Shriek!Shriek!Shrieeeek! " F**k pal, relax. 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.)
No wonder Robbie Bach was fired...and was glad to be given the boot. I can just see Steve Ballmer at jerking around.
I found some new footage of natal, and actually, i take back what i said before. I'm genuinely excited to see what natal can do. Check this out:
That was hilarious
LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL! Kevin Butler couldn't have done it better.
and still lagging Im sorry you would look like a window licker playin that game lol
That can't be real. o_O
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?
.."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.
Too bad irrationality runs rampant here.
i thought playing the wii made u look silly. this just takes it to a whole new level e
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.
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.
0:25 Double Bottom of avatars shoe.
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.
How is GreenRingOfLife's comment trolling when there are 20 comments blow him that are real trolling?
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.
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!
:) That did make me laugh. Hopefully they don't go full on casual, and show off some hardcore games.
Why does ever demo video of this thing show people playing these games like retarded seizure victims? Even the worst of the Wii shovelware doesn't have you flail around like an incompetent jackass. Show me hardcore games with serious gamers playing. Cause I'm really not sold. 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.
Gamepad gaming for hardcore gamers. Hardcore games FTW! They try to make gamimg as an interactive entertainment, that`s ok. But as a hardcore gamer most time i would spend on traditional games, rather on this.
wtf! There's no way i would like to play my games like that!
wtf i see 3 seconds of a new game footage and then see that stupid red ball game whihc haunts me in my dreams PS: Those ppl look like dumbasses, damn im convinced im not buying this.
PFFFHAHAHAHAHA! Oh man! The GIF's of that women dancing are going to be priceless. I don't even need to say anything about that footage.The video speaks for itself.
and here I thought the Wii made people look like idiots.
I would file this under "FAIL" :)
lol sony likes balls too ...dont make me google them :)
that looked absolutely horrible, I hate when I see these casual gamers get on my favorite consoles I hate this
A NEW GAME!!!!! 00:39 I hope she is demonstrating at E3, that would give everyone a good laugh =)
At about 00:40 you can see up her shorts. That was the first and last second I was interested in Natal.
For the perv in all of us, and to prove I wasn't lying, I present the panty shot.
0:43 Omg....so retarted. Lol Almost on the same level as this video. Lmao
26-29secs lol 36-44 wins E3, you are witnessing the furture of video games according to greenring of life incredible stuff.
That video is so [email protected]
Wow...that natal has them folks looking retarded...
0:26 Oops. ¿Still in development? You gotta see the video but Muted.
So thats gonna cost $150?
*waits for some funny gifs* :D
Funny or fail? I hope E3 holds a lot more surprises.
is that real!?! >_< lol The kid at the back sitting down, poor kid least it has six seconds of not a red ball.
that was so dam funny to watch
But HOLY SHIT, that was hilarious. Still, there's finally footage of a new game even though they went right back to Red Ball. The avatar looked like it was doing the jig. Did anyone else notice the guy kept saying "Move"? lol EDIT: Made it all caps because I just watched it over again. It was funnier the second time. Oh, and scratch my jig comment (0:24). The dance looked more like this video:
Talk about Epic!
It's not JUST cuz i dont want to look like a complete idiot, it's also because i CANT move around in my gameroom like that LOL how much space required again? Looks like I won't be able to play the red ball game :( edit: omg lol rewatch it and ONLY watch the woman LOL
i live in a bedsit appt and my entire room is only a little bigger... ms says 3x2 meters of clear space thats a lot in europe
someone forgot to tell these guys and girls that the chicken dance is only done at butlins when you are pissed, lol, that was so funny, oh well best wait for the move:):)
But I see Natal selling like hotcakes over there, they like goofy sh!t like this. Edit: On another note that was bad, I'm still not convince why I should pick Project Natal. MS might have dropped the ball on this one.
I think it will sell pretty good in Japan, they are more into this motion thing than In Europe and US.
Ninja Warrior TV show is awesome! They got some goofy funny stuff like that over there!
Looks kinda fun. If it's not $150, I might get Natal for my kids. $150 is kinda pushin' it for a rarely used kids toy, though.
