I've been psyched for Natal since I first saw it unveiled. I hope this year was long enough to produce more than just tech demos, and we can see some actual gameplay and integration.

Could be interesting, if it doesn´t end up another EyeToy/PSEye clone. It´s finding a way of making a lasting title that is the tough part.....

Meh, I'm more excited about the PlayStation Move. Although maybe that's because I prefer my PS3 than my 360. Not sold on Natal....yet.

Jury is out on Natal... ever since they removed the processor and instead chose to have the tech drain on the 360's resources.

I'm becoming more and more inquisitive about the Move.

the processor has not been removed. it was a dual core processor and has been downgraded to a single chipset with the device using between 10-15% of the 360's cpu power. Basically the chipset in Natal will help render the 3D images while the 360 cpu will do the rest of the work.

I won't even pretend like I know what any of that means and I'm not even defending the device just want to correct that misinformation you posted.

I don't know exactly how they handle it internally, but if they are having the CPU on the 360 handle it, it means they can significantly reduce the lag depending on if the game needs that much fidelity by using more of the 360s processing power based on developer allocating resources.

If you use an internal chip then you are limited to whatever the el-cheapo chip can do so it isn't necessarily bad. A slight downgrade in graphics even if that since the GPU does most of that work in exchange for better playability isn't a bad deal and "might" even make the thing cheaper to buy.

Can't wait for E3!

I just want a game that finds a way to use Natal as more than just a controller. Something creative. Something you don't even think of. Something that it does while you are still sitting on the couch with a controller without you even realizing it.

Isn't it on Monday?

We'll find out soon enough if Natal is the real deal or just a pretender. Sunday can't come soon enough.

Out of that list of predictions, the only one that interests me is Hulu on the 360. I wouldn't mind seeing that.
bjornbear  +   1909d ago
im curious about Natal
based on the fact that we haven't seen ANYTHING on it.
Eclipticus  +   1909d ago
I am more interesting in the tech possibilities of Natal, with time and experience, successes and failures, what the technology of Natal represents true growth and advancement in the tech world, like the Eyetoy before it.

RTS and SRPG, i think, can benefit greatly from Natal. Imagine, controlling and moving units with a flick of the wrist.
Fighting games would be interesting but if its 1:1, most players would get tired, after one battle, not to mention lack of room, or downstairs neighbors. But would be amazing technology, for future exploits.

imagine Tetris, selecting, twisting the blocks with your hands.

possibilities are endless
