Natal Experience - Things We’re Hearing ’Round the Net (Live Blog)

The Natal Event is about to kick off in LA, and since no recording devices and the like are allowed, VG24/7 is going to describe the goings on that they’re hearing around the net best they can. So, keep checking this for constant updates.

The story is too old to be commented.

read n4g to know that if Natal is indeed priced at any higher than 100 dollars, its going to be a huge fail.

BRG90002236d ago

Right, because N4G represents a perfect slice of the target demographic of Natal.

ShepardVasNormandy2236d ago

I think you mean XBOX KINECT.

pain777pas2236d ago

I don't want to say it but this smells of fail. I want Kameo though one of the most underated games on the 360 and nothing else really like it on the system so lets try and hope that this thing works cause I'm a gamer and want to give everything a try and a fair shot at peaking my interest.

deadreckoning6662236d ago

Raven-Symone, Michael Cera..WTF??

absolutecarnage2236d ago

wow no offense dude but i think that n4g doesn't even come close to 1% of gamers in the world, I so sure that there like oh sh1t we never read n4g we are dooomed

SOAD2236d ago

It doesn't even come close to 0.0001 percent.

PRHB HYBRiiD2236d ago

n4g is my new facebook lol

Rainstorm812236d ago

i agree, i use facebook as well and i rather the trolls, the gamers, and the fanboys compared to status updates about someone hating work or stuck in traffic.

BTW heres the N4G Fb page everyone

Inside_out2236d ago

I hope somebody cams this thing...I don't want to wait till Tuesday to watch it...info should start streaming in soon....More pS3 kids than 360 kids on the Kinect threads...lol...they want to know too....good for them...the more the merrier...

NoFanboyZone2236d ago

The amount of fanboys on this site is quite pathetic. The only reason people bash MS & Sony is because they are jealous about something, and if you think I am wrong it only means you are one of them.

Rainstorm812236d ago

i dont even thik it comes down to jealousy, I think its that some people feel the need to back what they purchase, and bash anything other wise.

It cant be as simple as being jealous because just as easy as you can buy a 360 you can buy a PS3, it all comes down to preference. Some people show thier preference different ways than others

SnuggleBandit2236d ago

bahahaha

"interactive poncho"

looks like natal might have trouble detecting you if you aren't wearing this interactive poncho...now casuals are gonna look even more ridiculous playing with this crap

BRG90002236d ago (Edited 2236d ago )

That's related to the Cirque du Soleil show. The press isn't actually PLAYING Natal/Kinect tonight if I understand correctly.

@below: Tweets say all their ponchos are now green. They change colors as part of the show.

Moonboots2236d ago (Edited 2236d ago )

I'm wondering about that as well.. Why are suddenly everyone having to dress in monocolors? You can call it an interactive poncho but I am kinda suspicious here. And all the Cirque people are Blue? Hrmm.

EDIT: Nice.. I'd rather be wrong about that. We can put that one to rest.

NoFanboyZone2236d ago

Wow, I could have never seen an unthoughtout comment from a fanboy coming.

BRG90002236d ago

He clearly hasn't left as he's still tweeting about it. Thanks for linking him however, as I'm now following him as he tweets about the show every couple minutes. I don't think they're supposed to do this, so I hope he can keep it up.

Parapraxis2236d ago

..I didn't say he did LOL.

The GiantBomb guys did though.

Sounds like it's getting pretty crazy now, so they may have left prematurely

NoFanboyZone2236d ago

Lol, you should have kept reading his tweets, now he thinks it's awesome.

logikil2236d ago

If you didn't say he did, why did you link to his tweets?

They got me at Kameo 2. I thought the first game was way underrated. Have no idea how you would play Kameo 2 using something like Natal aside from making gestures to change her form.

Gives new meaning to pulling the wool over your eyes. It's obvious that this E3 is about the casual market for MS. As a 360 gamer I would be embarrased and offended. I hope I'm wrong and MS does show some games to get excited for.

HolyOrangeCows2236d ago

That's it, eh? I stayed up just to relearn about the games that USA Today outlined hours ago?

Ehh.....I gotta hit the hay. Same time tomorrow afternoon, gents?

They have to wear ponchos?

fantasygamer2236d ago (Edited 2236d ago )

wow im wondering if you have to wear em to play o.o..

Blaze9292236d ago

looks like a damn religious cult.

SnuggleBandit2236d ago

dont drink the M$ kool-aid!!!

Christopher2236d ago (Edited 2236d ago )

I'm thinking they might be doing live capture of the Cirque persons with Kinect-like cameras when they move and the ponchos will help create a back-drop that will help to distinguish Cirque performer from audience member.

Otherwise... I prefer cherry Kool-Aid...

BRG90002236d ago

Interesting, I'd say that's a pretty good guess. So it might be more accurate to call them NON-interactive ponchos.

Christopher2236d ago

Unfortunately I was completely wrong. It was so they could change the colors of the audience so when they tape it and re-air it the audience becomes part of the acts being performed.

mookins2236d ago (Edited 2236d ago )

Looks like some KKK rally if you ask me. Hilarious.

Obama2236d ago

That's also the first thing that came to my mind haha.

NewYork2142236d ago

better watch out then obama. this comment feels wrong to post

niceguywii602236d ago

Arrived? N4G is a Ku Klux Klan compound with a Tea Party event forming as we speak.

crapgamer2236d ago (Edited 2236d ago )

If It's $149 it will still do well, since one is all you need. Unlike Move or the Wii, you need to purchase extra controllers to have more then one person play at a time.
I think it look's like one heck of a show honestly. Well done and interactive, thus proving that EVERYONE can play it. Nice mixture of people as well. I have a feeling Kojima has a game to announce for it tomorrow. Exclusive game at that. I cant wait, as if the excitement wasn't already through the roof!!!

*Edit* So you think Move will work at $99 and an additional $99 or $69 per controller? Get real. If one fails they both will, though with the install base so much greater in the USA for Xbox 360 I suspect we'll see Natal or Kinect do just fine.
I should expect such noob logic from POS3 fans..lol GG. Wont catch MS now kiddos. Last place looks good on Sony though. :)

Britney Spears2236d ago

at 150 it wont do well,this gimmick is being hidden by wearing those suits.M$ should focus on making a working console.

Unicron2236d ago

I dont think either will work well at these price points actually. You don't attract the casuals with such pricing.

Personally, I care not for motion controls, so I wouldn't care if both tank.

Though Natal's functionality in other aspects besides gaming intrigues me.

Adva2236d ago

All you do is troll on N4G 24/7.

PS360PCROCKS2236d ago

"So you think Move will work at $99 and an additional $99 or $69 per controller?"

As the xbox 360 posterboy on this site you would think that you would know that YOU ARE THE CONTROLLER! Did you really just say that?

fear882236d ago

Might be as dumb and obnoxious as 360 fanboys... oh wait.
