The uber-cool controller-free technique involves a lot of gesturing and the flapping of your arms and legs around in thin air like a crazy person. It just does not look good. Period!
I used to own both Xbox 360 and PS3. But now I only have a PS3 (Slim). I am def. looking forward to motion control gameplay and 3d... especially for shooter games. Sony has more capacity to deliver better products and it will be the same for new motion controller tech, Sony products are expensive but still offer better VFM than M$ products. So even if you buy Natal, you are going to be uncool..!
I lol'd so hard.
LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL! I CANT BREATH ROFLMAO!
ROFL! I was cringing at the thought of that being the played out vid with the crazy old chick. Glad we have a new one making the rounds. Funnier too.
I try to be diplomatic and unbiased with all the consoles, but that was simply one of the funniest things i've seen in awhile.
After watching that vid Natal has officially become a must buy ;)
Best video ever
Gosh the first time I ever heard darude - sandstorm was waaaay back when I saw this B5 street fighter competition vid on TheFiringSquad. http://www.youtube.com/watc... brings back some good memories and vid is another good reason why controllers are a good thing to have.
Lol epic vid god natal is such a fail.
I'm not overlooking Natal because of the chance of "looking retarded". I'm overlooking Natal because Microsoft hasn't demonstrated to us that Natal can offer us core gaming experiences. Not just some waggle-lose-your-interest-in-5 -minutes games. Microsoft has to prove at E3 that it will work with games like Halo or Gears to convince the core gamers. While Sony has already proven that the Move is not just smoke and mirrors when it comes to core experiences. I don't doubt Natal's sales, because I don't doubt the stupidity of people buying things they'll never use more than once. I, on the other hand, only buy things that will keep me coming back for more. So far, Natal hasn't shown it can do that.
ROFL, ..... after wake and baking then seeing this I'm cracking up so hard lololol
at that vid....LOL
4 bubbles with comments like these astounds me. And with both of them not even out yet, it's impossible to say which is better. And as for the topic title. Well, no more than waving a controller with a fruity color ball shape at the tip. IMO, both will make you look a little uncool. But who is really going to notice?
Most will be looking at the Big Screen HDTV anyhow, not those looking like a fool, so I'm not to worried about it. They'll get a chance to look like a fool when it's there turn. LOL
If it's fun I'll play it plain and simple, I could care less about how I looked to the rest of you. Same goes for move, because lets face it you aren't going to look like the manliest guy playing with two fairy looking wands with pink, red, or blue colored balls in your hand. Move or Natal, if one or the other is fun, I'll buy and that's how it should be to the rest of you morons who think "If I look like an idiot but i'm having fun nobody will like me?....eh so confused!"
so playing with a standard controlle, ps move or wii mote makes you look cool? funny world
no, but they certainly don't make you lose dignity when someone walks in while you're playing.
Natal is pretty revolutionary. Never thought looking retarded would ever be revolutionized. Way to go Natal. That's some feat that will remain untouched for a while.
How about having fun? Why should I give a damn about what the next guy thinks? That's right, I don't. Games are supposed to be fun. It isn't meant to be "cool". Are you that shallow?
Which is why you're here defending the Natal against people that you aren't supposed to care about. It's all good, bro. Have fun with your Natal. I hope they release games that you enjoy.
move way better than natal? thats your first statement? please go troll somewhere else..... as e3 moves closer dumber articles arise
this is what a 4 bubble account does? Goes into a Natal story just to tell people Move is better? *golfclap*
Is this the best argument against Natal now? I am sure that when this is released, they would not be a bunch of prospective users, Will full lenth mirrors trying to see how they look when they play. If the games are fun to play looking like Pee Wee herman on crack is not going to deter anyone from playing.
No, Bigpappy. The Natal has many problems right now. My largest concern is the extremely childish target audience. Justin Beiber and Sam from iCarly being spokespersons is plain sad. The lack of hardcore game concepts is another focus right now. The obvious lag and miscalculations (since Natal is supposed to guess your movements) are another argument. Looking like a fool is probably the least important detractor.
but all motion controllers will make you look stupid,even regular controllers do too.
With other controllers you're holding something. Not being prompted into using your whole body. Looking like a fool while being prompted into using your whole body.
yes because using a wand with a big glowing ball on the end waving it about in the air is really a cool look as opposed to what you need to do with Natal. Stop with the fanboy crap
Look on the bright side, at least you'll be cooler than this guy:
Doesn't he play Natal too? So they'll be almost as cool as that guy.
I wouldn't pass on it just because it makes me look like a fool. I'd be playing it because it's fun and, most importantly, it works. Unfortunately for Natal, the latest videos have shown me that it still isn't the most precise thing in the world. Being this close to E3, it looks like the lag has been slightly improved, but the random twitching is still a major problem. There has been twitching in every single video I've seen of Natal, including the most recent ones. Microsoft plans to show this to MTV, [email protected] and Spike, but I'm almost certain it's going to look twitchy. @Quagmire: Hey, I've heard of her!
I don't recommend playing project natal drunk. But I do recommend watching people play project natal while drunk.
After finishing a 9 hour shift, exercising and looking after my family i'm kinda tired...... Would it be ok if i just slump on the sofa with my regular controller in hand instead? Natal/Move/Wii mote = new n exciting and innovative. Controller = the original and for the near future at least, still the best :D
exactly..I just worked 27 hours in 2 days setting up activisions E3 set at Staples center. I don't want to come home to move around..I want to sit and relax with a controller in my hand. Natal/move is something i don't care for at all. I have a Wii that doesn't get touched because I don't care for motion controls. Off topic-- I met Bobby Kotick too haha. I don't really know much about there presentation though besides Tony Hawk being there and there will be a half pipe for him to skate on. Btw building their stage has been a nightmare, but there video screen we put up is MASSIVE.
Lightsaber claws!? AWESOME!!
I agree I now do 3-9 unloading rans constantley and stacking shelfs carrying massive boxes I could really not go home and play natal wii that can be all right for games like mario or zelda metroid but I am not standing in front screen after doing work for six hours.
new series of IT cant effin wait :P
0118 999 881 99 911 9725 3 >:]
worst show in world
if its fun it's > than looking cool.... since when has anyone looked cool playing a videogame?
Stereotype usually given is, "Well it's not productive". ;)
when im really into a game, i look like lonestar trying to lift the yogurt statue.
No....It makes you look like a complete tit!
tit? so if three people are playing at the same time it's like three tits? Anyone will tell you three tits are better than two
hèhè, that only reminds me of a certain SF-Movie :-)
Aint it, i know im gonna buy one who cares what another person thinks.. hell its my money...
Yes yes. I bet some of you wish that MS would just cancel their Natal conference, don't you? I for one will wait until I've actually seen what they have to show before I form an opinion about it.
Yeah, there's no reason to form an opinion on what they've shown so far. No reason at all. Hahahahahahahaha
There are no cameras allowed ate the Natal conference tho so how are we going to see what they have to offer?
It´s true. Maybe its for avoid video comparisions and dysfunctions of Natal to be uploaded to Youtube
was being cool something we strove for anymore? Are we now back in grade school?
Agreed. Who the hell cares about being cool? I just do what I enjoy. I drink and go clubbing on some weekends, and when I drink I sometimes do silly things that look uncool, but hey im still having fun.
The people that are actually "cool" are normally the ones that don't care about being considered "cool" and don't try to be.
Exactly. I do whatever the frak I want and am not afraid if the world asks me. I edited a God of War 3 music video to Kill Bill music (that was featured on N4G a while back), and would promptly tell that to whoever asked before I told them I'm gonna meet the bros tonight for some Red Dead Redemption and horror flicks topped with pizza. I don't buy into the mainstream ideas of what "cool" is and don't give a frak to "be cool". Be who you are, and live it up - that's what makes you cool.
Playing Natal will make you look pretty dumb, same as the Wii does and PS Move will. But hey, how many of us when having some of the most fun we've ever had have looked dumb as dirt in the process? My point is, yeah everyone looks dumb when fully immersed in motion gaming but if it's fun, who gives a monkey's?
Wow you guys think you are seriously cool already? Spending all day trying to "prove" why your PS3 is better than the 360.. Scouring the internet for reasons to have a go at 360 owners.. pffffft. Project Natal adjusts to your play style anyway, there is no certain way you have to play it. You don't have to crazily shake your legs like that women in that youtube video everyone keeps posting. Besides.. What are we going to be out on the streets playing Natal for all to see? No we'll be inside having fun with family and friends with no one to judge us whether we are "cool".
Well you have a choice look uncool jumping around with no controller, or waving your arms around with a dildo or two in your hands. Your choice.
U have never seen a dildo...the move looks nothing like a dildo
One womens sex shop would disagree http://img.photobucket.com/... Sex toy if you ask me.
Sigh...can't we just wait for the games before we judge both Natal and Move? You wouldn't want to sound like an idiot when both or one of them becomes successful. Sure i hate MS but that shouldn't affect my ability to judge a game or an accessory.
That's not fanboy logic!! They have to say Move is better or Natal is better becuz They dream of it at night that's what fanboys do.. & So they feel like they played them allready!!! Fanboyism religion is the worst Help me burn down their temples & kidnap their women!!
If the girls are pretty can i rape, pillage and burn?
I mean with out a controller there is no feel that you are actually doing anything but pretending to play a game...I think a few casuals will fall fray to its charms but hardcore gamers...REal hardcore gamers not fanboys understand my point...who wants to play halo using Natal or even GeOw
Motion control is not about you and me. It is all about casuals. That is what SONY and M$ are doing this for. Having MC work for Hardcore is just a little side fun. They are not going to make a bunch of money on these controllers. They want to sell more systems and more types of games to new customers. It is about expanding, not keeping who they already have. So if you and I are not happy with MC, will we sell or systems? I wouldn't. That's not what I bought my 360 for.
Who cares what people think??? who am I trying to look cool for You?? even worse a girl?? Please I'll hit virtual ballz if I want to!!! I have ssen people look uncool since Ps2 day playing Madden getting mad & throwing down the controller...
Don't you mean Wii days playing Madden? PS2 never use EyeToy for Madden, heck it had a very small list of games that even work with it. To me it doesn't matter what you look like when playing it, its more of the lines how it works, EyeToy didn't do to well because of the lack of somethings it can do without a controller. Plus you are right, some Wii games people play do make them look dumb, boxing is one of them and the reason why is because you aren't throwing punchs.
So mOve will do the same!!! Don't care if the tech is better people can't tell when watching you play lol!!! Dive over the bed to hit a virtual tennis ball lmao!! Natal will be more appealing becuz people will think it's new tech!! Unlike sony f%$*king up as allways not marketing.. M$ will market the &h!t of this thingahmagig!!! Natal is allready gonna be on Mtv & Nick!! I'll wait for the hype train to leave!! unless I see more of... http://www.youtube.com/watc... or http://www.youtube.com/watc...
but defending it without having seen anything and bad mouthing everyone who is skeptical....is uncoool
