Playing Natal Is Similar To Drunken Dancing

Ripten: "Now, I think we all understood that for the most part Natal would make us look crazy, but seeing it on video like this makes you realize just how crazy you look. If you pretend that the Natal sensor isn’t even in some of the shots, Jacobs and his family just look like they’re dancing while inebriated. I’m not calling Jacobs ridiculous, I’m simply saying that Natal will really accentuate the “you look so dumb while playing this” thought that came along with the Wii."

The story is too old to be commented.

Actualy, even though it does look funny, the point is that the little kids and parents r having fun together. That's where MS is gonna get their money, but if the price is at 150$ like some hav stated, then that can hurt MS aswell.

Let me show you how the pros do it.

Somebody should do a mix with Natal and trololo.

absolutecarnage2813d ago

You say People playing Natal makes them look stupid, What do you think people look like playing with the move, its like everyone has a dildo in their hand waving in around saying look what i have

HolyOrangeCows2814d ago

Those journalists make for very poor actors. They put on insincere smiles, force their children to play along (it hardly keeps the kids' attention for more than 3 seconds without the guy telling them to keep playing), and worst of all have no idea what they're doing (See the lady doing the Elaine dance).

Terrible. They should really stick to B-list TV stars to fake enjoyment.
And Cirque de Soleil, I guess.

cayal2814d ago

What I want to know is...who has a lounge room (or gaming room) that big with that much space?

CoxMulder2814d ago

Don't diss Cirque de Soleil, those ppl are artists.

SIR-DARK-HAZE2813d ago

I have seen Cirque de Soleil twice, the show is truly fucking amazing. If you ask where, Florida, Orlando, Disney

DigitalRaptor2813d ago

I agree, their enjoyment looks forced, and the kids just look bemused.

And the woman is just like "keep moving, just move around" as if she doesn;t know what she's doing either. Kinda sad really!

Why would anyone want to play that? It's embarrassing, and it does not look fun.

rezzah2814d ago

To your 4 disagrees, its alright we understand. There are those out there who actually enjoy looking like retards.

beavis4play2813d ago

lets see them do that for 2+ hours.........what a sweat-soaked mess that would be.

This video irritates me. Look at the crazy woman go! I almost puke~! Only a pedophilia would even considering buying this garbage.
Family and have fun?! Please.. Natal initial purpose is to create more lunatics.

Uh huh. Thanks for sharing that incoherent, bigoted nonsense you illiterate twit.

Retarded Comment from a Retarded Fanboy @ playstar

PLAYstar2813d ago (Edited 2813d ago )

So you actually think that the woman looks normal while playing with Natal? Is she your mate, or perhaps your type? ;=\
How about we recall back last year E3 of the Natal demonstrations? Remember the psychotic disorder asian bitch doing the BANZAI LUNATIC dance? What about the head in the arse to make a shadow of a distorted elephant.. Sure is an ironic show! Even now recalling it sure makes me LMFAO! Lets also not forget that this isn't the first time that we have witness such embarassing act with the peoples that come interaction with the Natal.

If you don't agree with this, you're certainly in denied. Oh and if you're mentally retarded and bought this garbage. Please do upload your pathetic self on the web! So that I can have a good laugh at you! ;=) Thanks!

andthensum2814d ago

WhaBAMM!!! is back at 1:07 towards the end of the video.

lol, look at when the kid gives a five and what the avatar does; Whabamm!

Ouch! thank god that Avatar doesn't have any jewels dangling down.

harrisk9542814d ago

Look at about 14 seconds in... the dad steps on the mom's foot and she looks PISSED!! LOL.

fryday2814d ago

funny lol but those journalists really don't know what they are actually doing.

I think it that Natal could be funny, I have enough self-esteem unlike some others.

JokesOnYou2813d ago (Edited 2813d ago )

Still I say keep showing this vid, sure the initial reaction might be "lol, what are they doing" but when soccer mom's see they're playing an exericise game with the whole family and having fun, its still going to sell Natal to the casuals, regardless of the irrevelant n4g fanboys mocking them. I showed this to my Aunt(who owns a wii) and that was her exact reaction, she laughed and said "What is that?....they look so silly, but it looks fun, I liked to try that with Mark and the kids." btw, She already owns wii-fit, so go figure. lol

Laugh all you want but truth is the family is having fun and those type of folks will love casual Natal games regardless of how they "look", as for me I'm looking forward to Fable 3 which won't make me look anymore cool playing that with a 360 controller+Natal than I do when playing any game with a standard controller, not that I care how I look gaming anyway. I mean its not as if gamers haven't always been made fun of for playing videogames long before motion controls, who cares, I never cared up to now what elites think of gamers. It's just a shame this one Ricochet game has shown more people having fun than sony's entire wii-move lineup,
-I guess that's where all the bitterness of sony soldiers is coming from, they know exactly what their getting, all they have to do is look at the wii lineup and subtract the nintendo exclusives that include stuff like Mario, Zelda, Metroid etc= the shovelware. Unfortunately as the latest vid of wii-move indicates it looks like the casuals are not impressed with wii-HD, errr I mean move. lol

So to sum it up this "drunken vid" of a family having fun will sell Natal to the casuals and when micro unveils Natal being used with the hardcore games starting with Fable 3, combined of course with Natals unique use for manipulating menu's and the dashboard it will appeal to micro's main fanbase which includes people like myself.

ActionBastard2813d ago (Edited 2813d ago )

Look at the internet crusader...

When MS makes a spasm-inducing seizure simulator, I'm going to point and laugh because it's a waste of R&D and takes the industry in a different direction than I want it to go. Will bitching change anything? Maybe not. But there's always gallows humor, and I'll settle for that.

Get off your high horse, internet knight. Moving a menu with your voice or waving your hand is not a reason to shell out $150...or even $100. Get a harmony remote and do more. As long as I have a thumb, I'll be able to navigate console GUIs without issue.


cayal2813d ago

Does your aunty have a living room big enough to use Natal?

But has anyone noticed it isn't actually working? Look at the avatars on screen between 0:25 and 0:29. It doesn't work in whatever build they have there.

absolutecarnage2813d ago (Edited 2813d ago )

Unlike the video i saw of the ps3 move being displayed, those girls in the video looked really bored

edit and don't feed me some bullsh1t that there being paid. Everytime you see someone playing Natal They have a huge smile on there face Chalk up another bad marketing play by Sony " I know lets show everyone people playing our product and not having fun"

n4gno2813d ago

dumbs are sometimes easily taking good times while smart people are less gays..

4Sh0w2813d ago (Edited 2813d ago )

It is pretty hilarious, but it doesn't look much different from alot of the crazy "moves" I've seen when I've had a full house of relatives over and we fired up wii-sports. My sister makes the wildest insane movements for something as simple as bowling, I don't know why she does it when simple controlled movements work best but hey whateva, its all good because she's having fun any everyone is laughing, same as this lady. I've seen Ricochet played with much better coordination but again she's having fun franticly swinging and kicking all over the place so I say good for her. Also I'd ask those who downplay Natal because of a demo showing people playing a "active sports game", what do you think it will look like when sony unveils some "active sports game" for Move? Will it be alot less funny with "glowing balls" controller moving around?

aaah well, I will never give up playing stuff like Alan Wake and God of War with traditional controls, but when I think about it although I enjoy every minute of it, its almost always alone. At the same time the memories of getting together and playing "videgames" with my whole family on the wii, are very special, I still laugh about my sister looks. So all the "this will ruin gaming" is utter nonsense, wii is doing very well and hasn't ruined anything, if anything its allowed me to enjoy some lighthearted gaming fun with my relatives that won't even look at a controller. We still get great gaming experiences and WISHING for other approaches that will let NEW GAMERS enjoy videogames is just downright immature and selfish. Why can't Natal and Move offer something for all types of people? I don't understand why the people who are not interested in these motion controls can't just ignore them, I don't like certain types of music, that doesn't make it garbage and definitely doesn't mean those types of music shouldn't exist, I just don't buy it or listen to it. aaaah but haters can't stand the thought of people liking something they don't.= most of the n4g members on this site. "pffft whateva", I like that vid, can't wait to see more of Natal at E3.

seinfan2814d ago

Majority of gamers either don't want or don't care for motion. I would think the fanboys don't give two shits about this. It's only the Wiitards who are always saying "xbox and ps fanboys are jumping on the motion bandwagon". Sorry to break it to you, they aren't.

beavis4play2813d ago (Edited 2813d ago )

they probably think that woman is "hot" too. lol

that vid was as funny as this from a nintendo E3 conference (just turn down the volume- it sucks):

edit at below: it has to be "chariots of fire" doesn't it?

palaeomerus2813d ago

Sure. This'd be real cool if they were all clutching a Move in each hand though, amirite? LOL. Pew pew pew.

Lord Anubis2814d ago

That was embarrassing. maybe they should have left the babies try it. I don't have the space for natal.
