SKOAR! writes"project natal which is touted as one of the driving features of Microsoft's next generation project will be backward compatible with all released SKUs including the arcade which retails sans the hard-drive."
People will still look absolutely absurd playing this...I ve nothing against this tech but the demos make me look back and ponder on the importance of controllers...maybe its for the best the community has some form of barrier not to let the entire jungle participate in our world...
Im not suprised it doesn't need a hard drive. Eyetoy doesn't and they're basically the same thing
what I thought about the Wii,but after playing SSBM I felt the same way, if at the end of the day for your core base you have to drop the gimmick and use the controller like a regular one, it does not maek too much sense, sure anyone's grandpa will love it but it not meant for the core, the exp was good but I could not hold onto it...
It most likely requires some sort of storage to store facial/voice recognition data. Which means it will only use a few mb of data like there is on the memory card
It's not the hardware that requires the hard drive space it is the software. It doesn't matter to me anyways because true gamers use controllers and i have learned not to fall for all the PR BS these companies try to pull.
I agree with Miyamoto, Sony, and "the fanboys" that real games need a physical controller (with buttons on it). I don't think natal will be a success in reality (delusional internet media, maybe). Nintendo and Sony have and have had the right ideas about motion and it's use. The best of Wii games (top rated) share traditional control with moderate "waggle" or motion used effectively. MS has a casual market approach that makes even Wii Sports look hardcore now..lol
You guys have nothing better to do than bag on NATAL. Why don't you go comment on some Killzone 2 or Little big planet article...Oh yeah I forgot no one cares about those games any more. Your trolling wont convince people that NATAL will fail and Microsoft is evil. : )...Plus the Sony purple thing that looks like a dill will do just fine.
You fail. Lipz, scene it, banjo, natal = fail. :) LittleBigPlanet won GOTY. You fail as usual.
Hope they have a midnight launch.
I always thought this was a joke,MS is almost a generation late with camera tech...I still dont know why ppl are so excited after seeing a crappy Milo demo, The EYEtoy could pull off the demo at E3 ages ago...
for once stop tinkering with a concept, no one knows hos its going to be at the end of the day...
Sounds like sour grapes to me, if you were a Gamer you would embrace new exiting tech, lose the Fanboy and be a Gamer thats whats its all about at the end of the day, does Sony pay your bills by any chance ... No.. didnt think so. Gamer First Hater last
Please shut the hell up fanboy. Seriously.
That the Milo demo was staged. The animations don't coincide with the motion. Seriously though, I would prefer 1:1 movement. The Sony motion control was less flashy, but more functional and was doing what the Wii was supposed to do from Day 1. Gamers before Haters, I based this comment off observation, which is exactly what it is. I save my judgment until I play both...
Then take off your fanboy goggles and observe again. Natal is more then Milo so get over your hatred. The odd jealousy on this site is crazy lol. "The Sony motion control was less flashy" More flashy how? Natal= 1 camera only, Sony motion control= 1 camera+ a wand.
Your point? Several review sites have already joked about "the man behind the curtain" during Milo's behind closed doors demo. @beans: I really wish that 360 fanboys would take off their goggles as well. Until Joe Consumer who never thought of buying a 360 alone is buying one for Natal, it is not the Second Coming. Will not be such all by itself.
As in the fact that Microsoft hyped their Unfinished Natal beyond belief and it was the talk of E3. That was why it was less flashy then the PS3 version which was simply announced. It may not look as nice, but I see more possibilities with Sony's product. They have only Shown Natal in optimal conditions. To amaze me, I would love to see this product in the middle of a busy family's living room, with mom, dad & the dog running around. Will Natal still work as shown??? I for one know no matter how busy the environment is, because of its design, the Sony one SHOULD work. Ever see one of those goofy suits motion capture guys wear that have those white balls on it? Hell, that white ball at the end of the Sony controller resembles one, no? And considering what is was doing, 1:1 motion, I would infer that motion capture tech and Sony's new controller are intimately related. Am I wrong?
You must have a lot of time on your hands. Who cares if he posted on 15 Natal articles. Is it your problem? No. That's what I thought. Your post was useless just as this one is in pointing out your nonsense. Fangirl... (see avatar lolz jk)
@ paul0388 Get a life. Are you 10 years old? Why are you here if you hate the idea of Natal?
seems a bit off track, I mean how accurate is the Wii in its motion control.Nintendo had to release an add on to make changes...
but I wonder if its gonna be exorbitantly priced...
technology,I doubt they'll charge for and before ya know it they announce a price cut..
Dont be embarassed and hug your pink dildos while Im on 3D zone.
Being a gamer requires to pick and choose sides , its always ppl like us that support a console, It is ppl like us that keep the dreamcast alive to his date...anyway Natal is nothing new is wat I mean to say its just a rehashed concept...
Whatever data it needs to store, it'll use onboard memory - the thing has its own CPU, i'd be surprised if it didn't have any onboard memory.
This simply fuels the fire on Natals pricing,now it's looking for certain like a $100+ add-on.
Once again we have the super PS fanboy Forrest Gump sharing his knowledge. How much do two games on the PS3 cost? Brand new, not used, you poor bastard. Also, if i wanted to buy a couple of boxes of premium chocolate, how much would that cost? Get a job, and if you have one already, wash off that burger smell and get yourself a girlfriend (yes a REAL girl). You must be quite interested in Natal if you read all the articles about it, right? Wait for it to come out and then we can talk about the price. IMO Natal will cost about $100-$150 on it's own and much less bundled with the 360.
Motion Tracking copied from EYE TOY KINETIK (5 years old) Waaaoo Innovation!! (Loser) Image Reconition copied from Eye Pet (Again, Loser) Voice Recognition mehhh... its really an innovation!! 2 out of 3 are OLD or alreay used TECHNOLOGY... Shame.
Jealous, misinformed Sony fanboy (Loser)
If this isn't out for casual gamers only I don't know what is. You disappoint me Microsoft. I thought Natal would be the device for casual and hardcore alike, but I guess not.
This is going to be huge the masses love it and the negative reaction from PS3 fans is unmatched.
Is out in number today. Natal has really got the better of them and they want NATAL BLOOD.
because it seems sony and MS want to go the way of the wii which means there going to just focus on the casuals with all those motion bull**** wii maybe the best selling console this gen but it's still a POS with a bunch of shovelware and it's a bad foresign for the future of gameing oh well at least the PC still cares about the hardcore I guess I'll just stick with that
MS's just made it too competitive. Drained all the fun out it. Have tainted the industry and consumers in how we should think about video games.
It becomes clear that Project Natal will be pricey,just google all that is in the device and you'll quickly realize the price is looking like a significant issue.
You're obsessed with the price of this thing, aren't you?
He's obsessed with anything XBox 360 related.
Not like the 360 camp love to point out how cheap their console is though most either didn't buy an Arcade or soon bought a HDD and Gold membership. Go on and on about how expensive the PS3 is to the point they still think its $700.
^^ lol. Yeah. Must say - is OT, but who cares. You get the PS3 is too expensive argument and when you point out that the Arcade is the one selling the 360 everybody is quick to respond that nobody is buying that anyhow. What now ? Price or Quantity. Make a decision. Natal won't work on the current XBox, anyway (from a marketing standpoint). They need to introduce their own "Wii" based on something like the 360. Maybe a "casual" 360 or something based on the arcade - sure and an add on for the 360 fro $150 (damn, they sell a $5 WiFi for $100, what makes you think Natal with more HW in there will cost less ?).
Er, how's this news it's COMMON SENCE Do you see a hard drive on the Wii? do you see PS eye requring a install? do you need to install stuff to use a web cam? no it's optional.
So it'll be gimped to the non-HDD crowd? Great.
Well, obviously. It targets the casual market to steal shared from the Wii. You guys are not their main focus. Obviously its HDD less and Arcadi.
no HD thats impressive and I am into the Natal tech but like the Wii....it will never be mainstream and will not be used for competitive gamming
You can't tell me that voice recognition programs don't eat up memory. At some point, as they continue to buy all the games and content MS wants them to buy, a casual gamer is going to need a HDD.
But why would you need any of those on the HDD ? That voice demo was fake anyway, and simplified voice recognition runs on cell phones. If you have to "pattern match" (err train) the voice SW, then its not voice recognition anyway (but just a key word trainer) and if it is real voice recognition, it needs to process the data on the fly anyway. Keyword should fit into mem (or the mem card). No need for a HDD, the rest is built in Natal and why would you want to install that "kick-the-ball" game ? All Natal needs is a system update, but no HDD.
Why does the "new" XBL eat up half the Arcade SKU's 1/2GB of internal memory? Not that the Arcade SKU came with internal memory until the last big XBL update. And to listen to Molyneux Milo is gong to have daily updates to keep him current. Not that all of Molyneux's claims apply to any finished product. Also, its not like anyone is going to buy console for one game. Do one single thing with it. Not the way MS is advertising it.
Well BAM!! there it is sorry..
XBOX fanboys want all gamers to embrace new technology when they even supported Microsoft who dish out important basic functions of a system like Hard Drive, large capacity disc (Blu-Ray), free online gaming w/o subscription, 1080p, and wi-fi in the first place. If they have deceived the first 10million xbox 360 buyers in their first year, why kept buying it when they have announced the RROD that same year with disc scratching too. Blind fanboyism!
they didn't even try to be creative with it they just sacrifaced graphics for a stupid gimmicky wiimote with no payoff if anyone's to blame it's nintendo for introducing the wii and tainting what gameing is about
MS and Sony jumped on rumble as well, something they all stole by default. But that's another story. In this case, given that Nintendo needs Wiimotion+ to deliver on promises they made with the Wiimote years ago, the other companies couldn't help but improve on the idea. With MS doing the best because Natal can be used outside of gaming. But unless MS or Sony does better than the live demo of a PSEye game that should be on the Wii as part of a collection, what does it really matter?
Natal only requires you to let go of your self respect and pretend burnout paradise doesnt already have motion controls today on ps3.
LOL Everyone`s talking about Natal, hate or no hate. But as for the article i thought everyone knew this already.
