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.
read n4g to know that if Natal is indeed priced at any higher than 100 dollars, its going to be a huge fail.
Right, because N4G represents a perfect slice of the target demographic of Natal.
I think you mean XBOX KINECT.
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.
Raven-Symone, Michael Cera..WTF??
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
It doesn't even come close to 0.0001 percent.
n4g is my new facebook lol
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 http://www.facebook.com/pag...
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...
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.
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
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
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.
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.
Wow, I could have never seen an unthoughtout comment from a fanboy coming.
LOL some people are leaving the event.... http://twitter.com/jeffcann...
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.
..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
Lol, you should have kept reading his tweets, now he thinks it's awesome.
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.
I never said Cannata left. Here ya go. http://twitter.com/jeffgers...
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.
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?
wow im wondering if you have to wear em to play o.o..
looks like a damn religious cult.
dont drink the M$ kool-aid!!!
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...
Interesting, I'd say that's a pretty good guess. So it might be more accurate to call them NON-interactive ponchos.
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.
Looks like some KKK rally if you ask me. Hilarious.
Hmm...looks like the kkk arrived .
That's also the first thing that came to my mind haha.
better watch out then obama. this comment feels wrong to post
Arrived? N4G is a Ku Klux Klan compound with a Tea Party event forming as we speak.
So cool whish i was there
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 $69 per controller? Get real. If one fails they both will, though with the install base so much greater in the USA for Xbox 360 I suspect we'll see Natal or Kinect do just fine. I should expect such noob logic from POS3 fans..lol GG. Wont catch MS now kiddos. Last place looks good on Sony though. :)
at 150 it wont do well,this gimmick is being hidden by wearing those suits.M$ should focus on making a working console.
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.
All you do is troll on N4G 24/7.
"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?
Might be as dumb and obnoxious as 360 fanboys... oh wait.
Some one wake me when they start talking about games. Games that use controllers that is.
too much money in the house this is looking insane it can not fail because is to risky for MS!
Read the blog...this is some crazy stuff going on. It's like MS went on an acid trip when they thought all this up. I'm gonna watch the rebroadcast just to see what the heck everyone is talking about. There's literally an elephant walking through the crowd
Kameo: EOP 2?
"A voice talking about discoveries is being heard as an elephant – a f***ing elephant – walks through the crowd." Holy Crackers! They have a real elephant! Cha-Ching! EDIT: haha, crashed NeoGAF.. lots of gamers eyes on this. EDIT2: Okay, I was wrong and I'm never trusting my source again.. It is called Kinect.. ugh. I'm willing to bet that leaked banner ad is real now. ugh.
So there wasn't an elephant?
ahah yup they did have an elephant. I was talking about the name.. I was told by someone close to Natal that it was called "Wave".
Holy crap. Microsoft's marketing is usually better than this but they have gone off the deep end with Natal.
Wow everyone must be refreshing the page, their site is so slow all of a sudden. They must be getting so many hits from this.
This is the opposite of cool... geez dont drink anything they give you guys...
if the name is true kinect which they just announced i can pretty much guarantee that the leak 360 model is real. i dont have an xbox nor do i want one im just putting in my two cents
I'm sure I'm buying this. It's going to be the wii all over again. Unlike the move, which is basically the wii. Everyone will want to at least try Natal/kinict. It will be the new gimmick for gaming. And I'm sure, like the wii, the gimmick will get old for me pretty fast.
Kameo 2!? Cooollll, first one was a really neat game and had some good graphics for a launch game. Best thing Rare has released for xbox 360.
what happened to rare thou? all these old companies are to over hyped for what they use to be and do from last gen.most of the originals left,just look at sega and other companies also
Apparently the star wars game has lightsabers and darth vader with the player fighting darth vader.....hopefully I'm not misinterpreting that but it sounds like you control the lightsaber pretty cool Edit: Soccer and volleyball on now....Volleyball could actually be fun on natal. I think better than on move since you don't have to hold the controllers weighing your hands down. Interesting stuff so far Edit 2: I miss my 9 bubbles from the old site......many of these are apparently live demos and things like running a race....it's hard to know without seeing but I'm interpreting it as your actually doing a running motion Edit 3: Video chat....that's got no shot of backfiring (see Uno problems)
Sounds like the Star Wars game and Joyride might be the pick of the buch so far for launch titles.
Looking forward to see it .. Signing off. More details at the press conference tomorrow.
Lightsaber duels and Kameo 2... I think I might be sold on this gimmick.
Read the whole blog.... MS is f'ing out of their minds. This event is now the biggest WTF moment in E3 history.
Well.. I read the whole thing.. Seems really nuts what they did with all the ponchos and crap. A F*cking elephant? Just added it onto my DVR for both Monday and Tuesday. 1hr 30 min for the 360 conference but only 1/2 hour for the Natal Experience. Seems we will miss a lot of what they showed on Tuesday.
What the F**** is going on? :()
