This being E3, there's been a lot of impressive stuff on show. But nothing as impressive as seeing somebody play Ubisoft's RUSE on Microsoft's $20,000 touch-screen "Surface". Read More: E3, Ruse, Ubisoft, E309, E3 2009 -Kotaku
A 20,000 pc can't even handle ruse at 20 fps.
More like a $500 PC and a $18500 touch screen :p
lol price is like WAYYY TO HIGH
a huge ipod touch, now that's new
Now this is amazing. Not ruse, but how they zoomed out, and saw an entire room. When that happened I thought, it would be amazing to be able to play a game like Heavy Rain with this touch screen.
Surface is the future. Can you imagine a head to head RTS game on this thing? And you can finally do a real life yu-gi-oh card battle and other TCG games. Damn ... this really makes me happy, technology is amazing at times.
definitely worth checking out..
Seriously though, CNN uses these things all the time. Looks pretty neat, and may be the future of computers, but in a different form. Would i have to move all the crap i have piled up on my table every time i want to check my e-mail?
That was awesome!
It's Microsoft, why would you expect anything less? They're not like Sony teasing with games from 2010. What a weak 2009 line-up for being "Sony's Year."
yeah because people are going to buy a $20,000 touch screen to play this...
If they release this to the public now, no one but the richest in the country would have it...so there's no point...no money in it. Sony at least showed things that are coming right away, Natal still has a long way to go. This is absolutely impressive though, I would get one if it were a viable option...but we wont see this tech take off until 2019
@2.2 Do you need everything explained to you *all the time*? Here's a newsflash: Project Natal makes that $20k touchscreen go away. Windows 7 || Xbox 360 + Surface Runtime + Natal == What you see there.
Sure this would make great games but thats really not the focus for this tech, currently its almost exclusively built as a product for big business, I think theres already deals with hotel chains etc. The tech is waaay to expensive right now for anybody except the rich, but its would be awesome for gaming nonetheless, right now this is just a way for micro to show off using this game. JOY
u say why would we expect less because its microsoft? are u serious? microsoft has been beatin in so sooooooo many ways man, and not just in the gaming industry, linux is better than windows, but not as popular, the ipod destroys there dumb little zune, the ps2 was way better than the xbox, the ps3 is better than the 360, console wise, and with games its just a matter of opinion. but i will say that u are ignorant when u say sonys lineup is weak from now till 2010, there are amazing games coming to the ps3 and psp and even some good stuff for the ps2 people out there, and there are things in every genre for every age group and every type of gamer out there so stop being a damn ignorant fanboy like the rest of the world, look at microsoft for what they really are. money hungry bastards that cant come up with a damn thing by themselves.
So Mr_Controversy, where does Sony's line up for 2009 fit into this - being an article about MS's only decent piece of hardware for quite some time.. Bashing Sony in an article about HARDWARE is also pretty dumb if you ask me, being that they are one of the top brands in this field and probably the most innovative. And cherrypie, you honestly think every 360 owner will afford Natal and this touchscreen to play with.. I for one highly doubt that.
now sure who gave you the disagree...though i'd guess it's a ps3 fanboy that probably follows you around just to give you disagrees. you're right though. this hardware is not meant for the home. but i don't think it's limited to big business either. this will be the kind of thing you'll find at internet cafe's and other types of local businesses in a few years. but yeah, the game is obviously just a demonstration of what the thing is capable of. they aren't trying to make this the new gaming machine. did look pretty cool though.
I can totally see this is as the future of the RTS genre and Puzzle genre. Other than that, every other genre requires buttons.
buttons can always be mapped to the screen or hud. Disagrees? wtf.
Napoleon Bonaparte would be proud...lol This is just awesome...it's taking a while for this to debut.
Now how to do fit that game on the dslite.
Man the fanboys are starting to get worse. Has the xbox360 had an exclusive AAA this year yet? So far Infamous, Demon souls, and Killzone 2 have been released this year. All 3 with 80+ reviews. What great AAA exclusive has been released this year for the xbox360? Ninja Blade? As far as this tech goes, very impressive indeed, but nothing until it is truly implemented.
I'm not an XBox 360 fanboy. Ninja Blade isn't a poor game, lol. It beats PS3's Genji of the Blade. What exclusives? Halo Wars, Virtual On: Oratorio Tangram Ver.5.66, Peggle Deluxe, Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned (Over 20+ hours of gameplay longer than most PS3 games such as Heavenly Sword, lol).,OutRun Online Arcade, The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai, etc, etc! PS3 only users = missing out big time.
^ Outrun is 360 exclusive?? I have it on my PS3... Not going to post a list of ps3 games...
just throwin this out there... Halo wars (a game i think is only average) easily outsold any title on ps3 this year. so what AAA titles does ps3 have this year? killzone was a 5 year investment for an 8 hour sub-par game. and infamous, while fun, is nothing to write home about. both systems have had a pretty lackluster showing this year so far. let the disagrees fly. EDIT: So far, i've purchased 2 games this year (til prototype comes out in a few days), killzone and infamous. like i said infamous is fun for an hour at a time but it looks absolutely terrible and definitely has a ton of glitches and other issues. killzone was just a joke though. but the point is, i know i'll be called a 360 fanboy because i don't worship sony's games or think those games are amazing (they really aren't even close to amazing or worth 60 dollars) despite the fact that of the 120 dollars i've spent on video games this year for console, none of it has been on 360.
I cant wait until I can have one of these running everything in my house!
Have to wait for nano-film TVs you spray-on to walls. Give it another six months. Just be sure to have $100K per square foot for it...
No problem. Ill take 100 sq feet please. lol
OMG its amazing , i want to play Crysis with one of those ...
And shoot with your fingers like kids playing cops n' criminals? thanks but no thanks.
The Dishwasher? Sorry I'm not missing out on anything. The Xbox360 games I want I can get on my PC and/or are on the PS3. The only game on the xbox360 I want is MAss Effect 2 which I can get on my PC, so I'm not missing out on anything.
I agree with you because your still supporting Microsoft. Win/Win. I'm glad I can sit on my big comfy couch in front of my 62" HD-LCD with 7.1 DTS and a controller in my hand. You get to mess with the alphabet and cramp your hands with the mouse. Good job!
You can hook a PC up to a HDTV and you can use a contoller to play PC games. Nice that if one chooses to they can bypass the 360 to play most it's games on a PC. Why people like you like to try and start stuff up and spew misinformation is so sad. Keep hugging your 360 just don't block up that air vent other wise you know what will happen.
X360 is not able to do DTS 7.1 in any of their games like the PS3 can, the hardware in the X360 is not there. X360 is only able to do 5.1 DD and windows media pro. I use every aspect of my PS3 audio: 7.1 DTS Master Audio. ATRAC @ 352 kbps. CD output @ 44.1/88.2/176.4 kHz. X360 audio fidelity is weak and half-ass.
Looks like an oversized iPod touch
Almost as expensive as the PS3 when it first came out. MASTERSTROKE!
let me rephrase that "Almost as expensive as the PS3 when it first came out on eBAY" fixed :D
I have been playing GTA 4 DLC , Halo Wars and this year i will be playing --> Splinter Cell , Forza 3 , Modern Warfare 2 , Assassins Creed 2 , Halo 3 ODST...Next year ... Alan Wake , Mass Effect 2 , Halo Reach ,CrackDown 2 , Brink ... oh and the big Gears of War 3! only announced game because Microsoft will give us more on next E3 and TGS !! Also this year Left For Dead 2 looks AMAZING like the 1ast one alread was!! Oh and great arcade games such Perfect Dark , Shaow Complex , Joy Rider an enjoying the best service on the world : Xbox Live , metting new friends , facebook , twitter , Last.fm... and...Playing online Modern Warfare 2 and Halo wich will rise the bar once again !!! Oh and Splinter Cell if the online is cool ! Amzing years are coming once again for gaming industry!
I agree for the most part except Halo will not raise the bar. It has not raised the bar since the single and best original Halo:CE. And paying for xbox live just to meet friends is kind of sad mate.
While 360 will have it's share of good games on the system, most of those games can be played without owning a 360. Fact. If you only want or can only afford a 360 then it may be a good buy if you can overlook it's quality build, pay to play and expensive add-ons. But if you have a PS3 and/or a PC it's value diminishes greatly due to lack of exclusive content you can only play on the 360. As for the giant touch screen, it may be useful if shrunk down. Maybe cam be used in a portable gaming device/phone/etc. Nice to see gaming evolve with new ways of interaction. PSeye/Natal/Wiimote/Sixaxis, they are all nice. Nice that Nintendo was right about motion controls. I applauded Nintendo for trying something new and now others are following. We'll see if they can integrate those peripherals with high quality software. There just aren't many Mario Galaxies and Eye of judgements currently available.
@7.2, I haven't been on the PSN store for a while now but last time I heard it was an exclusive. Also exclusives aren't the best games, multi-platform ones deal major damage as well. Grand Theft Auto, Call of Duty, Need For Speed, Madden, etc...
That game is called RUSE. And i can't wait for that game. This is a perfect example of how NATAL would work.
lol good for you im sure your happy paying for that junk. when i know games arent worth a dime i download them.. hmmm thats pretty much all of the 360 games your a kid with a mouth that talks alot good luck with your 360 im playing games that are coming out while your watching them on your computer. and noone needs to hear about your 6 tube tv's taped together to make 62 inch and 7.1 but your receiver only receives 5.1 haha. and yes ninja blade is a poor game thats why i chose to download it and not play it lol. what a weak lineup 360 has only videos and no demos. sucks:)
Whats sad about making friends on Xbox Live ? when i bought the Xbox i only knew my Real Freinds and i have alot...then i meet online friends and i know the in person know because sometimes we combine to go dinner in some kind of place... so nothing sad with that ;)
I guess theres nothing sad about arranging to have dinner with another man met on xbox live... xD joking btw don't take it personally
SWEET! I want that huge @ss touchscreen, that game looks pimp on it too.
this would definitely sweet. if they drop the price $18500.... until then we can use normal computers
this have with natal? pls.exlain to world
that thing is amazing. reminds me of those futuristic military/sci-fi movies where the general is panning LED screens in mid air and drawing coordinates on a virtual plane. pretty impressive. won't be used for gaming anytime soon. it'd be fun for chess.
well once again a thread turns in to a measuring contest. you guys are missing the point here. yeah the table is cool and that is the ideal way to play ruse. but with MS's and Sony's motion controls you will be able to stand in front of your tv and play. and that sounds really cool for either system.
