NowGamer: Natal renamed and almightily impressive event experienced. There are no words to describe what just happened at the Galen Centre, here in Los Angeles just hours before the official opening of E3 proper...
will fail hard!!!!
Prerendered and fake. http://forums.gametrailers.... Dont forget to check the BAMMMM there it is gifs (scroll down). Hilarious.
i now know why both Sony and Nintendo skipped this idea because the company that makes natal approached Nintendo first then Sony both refused so MS was the last resort and they accepted it so yah i guess i know why they skipped it now
You make a good point. A pretty obvious one too! Lol :P
From revolutionary to unimpressive in a year! You know... for a device that was supposed to take hardcore gaming away from the bottomless pit it was (apparently) falling into, Natal/Kinect sure seems poised to bomb worse than the 32X.
That dude's shirt in the video...I want it!
lol M$ IS A BIG PHAT PHONY!!!
MS should have had the forethought not to invite game press to this. It just wasn't made for them and it shows.
Can't wait to play this...Sounds like the show was awesome...great to see somebody realizes it was a SHOW not a demo...lol... M$ presentation coming in a couple of hours...Fable...milo....Exclus ives...New Xbox...The fun is just starting...Kinect is gonna sell millions...
And I love the possibility What is making me think right now is how come some of these tech demos appear to be pre-rendered. I'm starting to get nervous, but I hope MS comes through. Good competition is always better for us gamers.
where is Omega and GreenRing of Life and Niceguywii60? Haven't heard much about how great Natal will be from them today?? Hmmm wonder why?
They don't want to lose all of their bubbles for being excited about something that they are going to purchase?
the only thing they have to be excited for as of now are pre-rendered faked "demos" (see image i posted above), gorillas with flowers growing out of them, glowing ponchos, and big robo-elephants.
Well I had high hopes for this. Many games for the casuals but nothing for me. Maybe we'll see better titles pop up down the road. But as of now I'm not impressed.
Microsoft can throw all the money they want at advertising, but that doesn't hide the fact Natal/Kinetic is an overpriced and overhyped piece of hardware. You can't hide lag.
A real disappointment.
*Connect no wonder our youth is getting dumber.
Its probably taken from the word kinetic (which basically means energy from movement) I don't think its the best name to sell for a product. I wasn't turned on by the product name Move either, but at lest its an actual word that you can relate with real life. Thats marketing for you....all fancy buzz words.
that last paragraph pretty much summed up this kinect shambles
how will you cross light sabers with out feeling like a actual clash....that right there makes a lot of game feedback of some kind...to make it feel like you are actually doing something ... that was the problem with the eye toy after a while u felt like you were doing nothing ...I mean natal will be good for mini games but the price wont help it sell and the fake presentations of what it can do
at first kinect may feel quite innovative but as time goes by it will soon start to loose the attraction due the lack of controller which allows feedback where you may feel that you are only making gesture due to the presence of (if true) continuous lag
hmm I think Move would be supported too with that star wars game... which could work
Yet the Move has proven to be way more accurate and with the wii you kinda just move the controller around with no kinda accuracy involved...Well the games I played...I am thinking certain games are made for this dynasty warriors..some rpgs...Imagine MAss Effect with the Move....but its not the hardware that seems to be the problem...sony needs the software and it looks like they are trying
Move would do it better, a nice distinct rumble. And a sudden brighter glow or flash of the ball!
"how will you cross light sabers with out feeling like a actual clash....that right there makes a lot of game feedback of some kind...to make it feel like you are actually doing something" ... This was my exact first thought as well.... Sony has been saying this for the past year... A player NEEDS some sort of tactile feedback.
wow,will just have to wait and see,but it doesnt sound to grand
Wow M$ (video game division) now has one foot in the grave and another on a banana peel with the Kinect fiasco. The Media is not pulling punches today.
Microsoft bit off more than they could chew !
spat coffee everywhere
I have yet to read something overly positive for hardcore gamers...
ill wait for tuesday to see myself and see what other developers have instore
Please let this piece of **** fail hard come fall. I want microsoft to learn a lesson that this is NOT the way to 'innovate'.
LMFAO microsoft is incapable of learning "But, then again, it was also clearly not in realtime, with the demoist working hard to ape the motions of the on-screen action, rather than vice versa. And while we understand that the game proper may not have been ready to show, we suspect it more likely that it’s the technology that isn’t. Or, more precisely, that Microsoft is unwilling to risk another ‘Bamm!’ moment weighed against the potential boost in confidence it might gain in showing any of this stuff truly live." epic fail, dont annonce your tech if it cant even stand up to a live trail
It's official. Microsoft just made a fool of themselves in front of the whole world. And right before E3 no less. And the only game that wowed everyone, the light saber game, was the one game that would be better with a controller in you hand. Microsoft has just shown their inexperience with selling games to casual gamers. Should have left it alone Microsoft. Should have left it to Sony and Nintendo.
and that footage was faked, just watched the video, the guy clearly moves his arm on the screen than the guy on stage
I know its fun to hate just let me know when your done so I can find actual gaming news instead of a chronicling of your mental illnesses. Edit Below: You make MS sound like its a threat to you or something, if you dont like a product then dont buy it, nothing more and nothing less. who is trying to hoodwink you? Its called marketing. Just like the new 4 blade shaving razor isnt from outer space and wont get you laid.
tbf we have just found out that natal footage is fake, its all recorded, its not about having fun its about seeing something wrong and calling it, sony had it with the price and no games crap, as far as im concerend microsoft deserve this, they have gotten a free ride for to long now, its about time there shady crap was called out. dont get me wrong i enjoy playing xbox as much as any other console but they wana try n hoodwink me and every other gamer out there but it aint workin this time.
problem solved. Move on. If it doesn't interest you, why the need to bash it constantly? I don't like lady Gaga, but do you see me going to a forum somewhere and trying to convince her fans that her music is prerecorded and she lip syncs?
but they are trying to trick gamers with there pre recorded demonstration of natal games, i wasnt slaging or hating anything i was just pointing out some truths, i didnt attack anything i just answered your question babytown, most people arnt hatting, most sites are running stories right now on natal and its not good, nobody seems impressed, and frag how can i bash something if im just terlling the truth? thats a bit backwards.
This is why i hate M$. SHOW ME what you say. Thus far, Sony has ALWAYS delivered. From PS1 to PS3. Game after Game after Game. The Software speaks for itself. You have rode the back of Bungie for TOO LONG Microsoft! And now you ride EPIC's Back! Well Epic is not owned by you and they will make multi-platform games. Sony has the games! WOOOT!
1: Lag 2: No games 3: Price 4: Not hardcore 5: will break cause by M$
were making all these comment like natal can do this and natal can do that ans ms is going to blow us away with natal. that sh1t sucks. eyetoy 2.0 dumbarsses
"Star Wars game in which the player accurately used their entire body to exercise force powers and engage in light sabe battling was hugely impressive. But, then again, it was also clearly not in realtime, with the demoist working hard to ape the motions of the on-screen action" Sigh.... even when coated with white robes, standing for hours, a pointless circus show was not ENOUGH to make them weary about the facade that was played out in front of them. Apparently the only lag they've fixed was the same one they've used as the preview in last E3. Only this time, it was LIVE! -End statement
