Microsoft Will Reveal Something About Natal That Starts With .. “The Lo…” What Could It Be?

Who would have ever thought we’d come this far in the gaming industry? No longer is the artform something for kids only. No, gaming has extented its reach and come E3, Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo are planning to take the revolution even further.

But Microsoft’s plans are more ambitious than Sony and Nintendo’s combined in the motion sensing department. In fact the software giant is planning something so big, so great, that it’s hired one of the most popular networks, MTV, to witness the Project Natal experience live.

And what’s this “The Lo” that’s getting Matt Singley, Sr. Dir. of Social Media Strategy for the Xbox and Zune divisions so excited about? (E3, Microsoft, Project Natal, Xbox 360)

Microsoft might be shooting way to high here with all this Natal stuff. I'm telling you this might fail, and fail hard.

or it MIGHT succeed and be successful, and the world MIGHT end tomorrow, and the stock market MIGHT crash again...cool thing about the word "might" is that you cant really be wrong until its proven
niceguywii60  +   1875d ago
People don't walk around saying they might die! after something good happens in their lives. Like you said everything has a MIGHT related to it but this article is about something folks are very excited for.

Do you get it? Sony might have a new PSP and if Sony were to say they are very excited about something related to it, is it normal for Somebody to say it "might" fail in that article?

How in the hell is marketing your product getting it exposure a bad thing? What alaa realy said is he doesn't like that Natal will be front and center in popular opinion and it will win over the casual masses etc.

I guess alaa should have explained a better way for Microsoft to market Natal assuming his intent was concern and not stealth trolling ;)

So more surprises and information is bad now? It could kill your product!

MIGHT be if you are in a console war and prefer the competitor's product, I would say!!!

“The Lo…”?
I think it stands for "The Lord of the Dance!"

Michale Flatley is going to be on hand to unveil the new Natal Riverdance game!

Seriously People I think this one is fairly obvious.

quoting my previous post:

"Lo... as in MILO.... I can't wait to see adults have awkward moments with little digital 10 year old boys... I'm sorry doesn't excite me..."
Godmars290  +   1875d ago
Not seeing finger tracking, augmented reality or any video editing/recording options. The last may not be all that big a deal, but if Natal doesn't have some of the PSeye's basic features, how is it really that more advanced?
SOAD  +   1875d ago
Does PSeye do finger tracking?

And what is augmented reality? It sounds like a ten dollar word.
Godmars290  +   1875d ago
That's what Move is for, for finer control that PSeye can't do on its own.

Augmented reality is something like Eye of Judgment, Eyepet. this stuff:

Yeah there really backing the product but I say let's just wait for E3 to see what there going on about. I honestly would like to see Natal blow my mind but of course time will tell in like 2 days.

@ alla
I remeber the same thing being said about the Wii. TBH I not that hype about both Move and Natal but if all goes well for MS this might pay off big time.

The (Mi)lo?
Maybe "lo" is short for Milo? Peter Moleneux's demo may be a real game now.

I think i know what Lo is...

Yup. One of my trusted inside sources told me. It's totally legit, just like all of the no-name blogs' "trusted sources" *Rolls Eyes*

The guy who said "The Lo..." is the director of Zune
Take into account that the Zune has been a complete failure.
edhe  +   1875d ago
No, it hasn't.

It ended up the #2 brand of mp3 player for a while, which is not a failure.

Zune isn't finished evolving, that's pretty apparent.
FragMnTagM  +   1875d ago
A marketing failure, but definitely not a hardware failure. The Zune is actually a really well done PMP.
aviator189  +   1875d ago
The zune, while a commercial failure, has proven to be an excellent product.

for the audience they are going after, price is gonna be key.
I am interested in the tek, as with motion, but for competitive or online gaming I dont see any merit (yea even motion with socom), I am gonna buy the new acessory which mates keyboard + mouse to play it instead...
if this device is 100 bucks or more, it aint gonna go over big, until a real game or app. is shown with it

Well, I think were gonna see Slim 360, Xbox portable and a LOWER price on the 360. New slim 360 with Natal bundled for $250 would be amazing!
Microsoft is doing things the right way, build the excitement. Keep the secrets SECRET and unveil them at E3. Great tease and even greater way to build up everyone. No doubt, even Sony and Nintendo fans are wanting to see what MS has up their sleeves, where as personally I don't have a reason to watch Sony's conference. 3-D, Move, games they already announced before E3.......

Where you pretend to shoot vodka while popping pills in front of the natal and the screen gets blurry.

Then you have to duck in real time to avoid the press from taking pictures of your innebriated state.
