OXM UK: Microsoft has confirmed that Project Natal will be treated like the launch of Xbox 360, with a portfolio of launch games.
Hell Yeah -- Cant wait for those AAA Games with NATAL like MILO and RaRe Games! Bring it!
So a portfolio of games is confirmed but then they don't tell us what titles they are or what games they might be like? Throw me a friggin' bone here!
... Erm, sorry but Milo was using Smoke & Mirrors so looks like that won't be an AAA title. :P
Throw slim daddy a bone. woof woof.
Milo was NEVER suppose to be a game. Milo was just a tech demo showing people what Natal will be capable of doing. Expect that kind of Milo interaction in future RPG's, especially Fable, if the dude from Lionhead is behind it. If they use this technology in RPG's than kiss Mass Effect 3 for the PS3 goodbye, because that kind of personal interaction would innovate the face of RPGs. You were suppose to think outside of the box for that presentation, of what project natal will be capable of doing when it gets released.
Where are my sharks with fricking lazar beams strapped to their heads!? Wait! Natal Sharks featuring lazar beams strapped to their heads? Maybe?
Yes it will be a very big launch, and Sony has to counter it. As i know ill be getting a 360 around the time of Natal, unless Sony do something amazing, and i feel i dont need to buy one.
"AAA games like milo..." LMAO. Its not even real, it was scripted. It really shows the level of intelligence of someone if they watched the molynox demo of milo and think thats what they'll be getting on the 360 lol. "hi milo! Have you done your homework today?" To have interaction like that is complete artificial intelligence and you are a complete fool if you think 360 can do that
That crap was just plain freaky. And what Xbox fanboy can truthfully say they look forward to chewing the fat with a freaky little kid like Milo? Seriously?
@SLim Milo is no more a creep than the weird scary looking girl in Heavy rain.
after all the promised mistakes PS3 and even Xbox have made, do you really think they would do such a thing again? Milo is obviously going to live up to what it showed a E3.
Sorry but AAA and Rare don't belong in the same sentence.
to me more important than 1 companies success, is that the companies push gaming to new heights and offer us experiences not previously available. As long as gaming is pushed forwards, we all benefit.
It will just use the same processing hardware...
Can't wait to see actual gameplay footage, but until then I'm skeptical about anything Natal.
Milo is awesome because I can talk to fake 10 year old boy! I DO have a life! Milo is real! LIAR (a blind xbox fan)
I'm afraid to comment about Natal, I wan't to being a new 360 fan but all the PS3 only fans might abuse me. This is nothing we didn't know already why would a company launch something of this scope with no way to use it.
I agree. That chick in the tech demo/audition was creepy. However, the chick from the game itself is not nearly as freaky. I do have to ask however, would you rather talk to a freaky under-aged little boy or a mature freaky woman?
Since my girlfriend is jealous type, i would rather talk to the freaky kid :D
"It really shows the level of intelligence of someone if they watched the molynox demo".. Yeah, just like the level of intelligence on display here when you can't even spell the guys name right. ..."of milo and think thats what they'll be getting on the 360" You mean like all those peeps who thought Killzone 2 footage was real at it's first E3 showing? It's not about the 'freaky' kid, nor any smoke and mirrors that goes on at these press events. For me, it's about the technology and what's driving Milo - talking to a 10 year old doesn't excite me, but having some nice tech to play around with sure does. It won't be here for another year anyway so plenty of time for polish - in a way, very similar to the impressive changes we saw from Killzone 2 reveal to retail. Fair and balanced?
Umm this needs to files under the Duh category. Did you think they was release a new peripheral without any software?
Perfect Dark, GoldenEye 007, Banjo-Kazooie, Banjo-Tooie, Conker's Bad Fur Day, and Battletoads not good enough for you?
Are u serious? "Hell Yeah -- Cant wait for those AAA Games with NATAL like MILO and RaRe Games! " I have no doubt Natal will have some big name great titles, but Milo? Rare games? u mean like B&K? All that is left of Rare is the name, the talent is rarely found. Milo is a weird Peter Molyneux phantasy. Natal trully makes thing interesting in the 360 universe, only question is what is the target audience, casual? hardcore? both?
but i'm always on several times a day. I see both sides of the "fanboy" war. I'll admit i don't own a 360 but would like to. But things like Natal, are not going to entice me. I understand some people can find it great, but can those people please shed some light on what you honestly want to do with natal. How are you going to use it in Fable. do you want to walk around a town talking to your self, Maybe even repeating yourself if it can't understand you. What happens if there is people talking in the room next you. As i do have all the time. It seems like a good idea, but if it makes games forced to have it input, voice recognition is not accurate enough to play full on games. Oh well there goes my rant, peace guys/gals Be a gamer not a hater. PSN ID: Sitris
Oh man cant wait for Cut the Cheese, Spank the Monkey, Glitch Out to debut with Natal, it will change teh games forevers!
Is there anything to say to this comment but "lols"?
what a ridiculous headline "Project Natal launch games confirmed" - article has NO mention of any launch games. How can something that doesnt exist be 'confirmed'? Better title would have been "Natal to have games at launch" - bit obvious really. I've just had a ham sandwich - confirmed! ;)
This is the shortest and most dissapointing article on n4g ever=) There is no info what so ever, basiclly. Who Approved this??
"I see it as like the launch of the Xbox 360 back in 2005 - there will be a launch portfolio of games to support it," http://www.mcvuk.com/news/3... Why are you guys so scared of Natal? Entire interview http://www.mcvuk.com/featur...
"Did you even read anything?" - Yes, the whole article "Why are you guys so scared of Natal?" - Others may be, I certainly am not and am quite looking forward to it. Exactly the point of my original post - I'm excited by Natal and really would like to know what games will be around at launch. The article title led me to understand I was going to find out what games they were by clicking on the story. I thought it might have said there would be 4 or 5 arcade titles supported by another 4 or 5 at retail - maybe even some mention of Forza, Halo or Fable Natal action. Good interview, but the headline is VERY misleading.
I will not read your fanboy rant but I will say if Microsoft reveals they have games planned for Natals launch that's confirmation . I know PS3 fans wan't to know what they are when they say so, so they have time to bash them. You guys should know by now Microsoft will share info when the company is good and ready.
I was agreeing with you - you should have read it.
I did not read it because your first post and my reply are not even close to agreement. Your logic couldn't be anymore flawed. You don't know what exIsts for Natal also that doesn't make sense when you say it can't be confirmed because you don't think there are games in development. It's confirmed because Microsoft said that's how they will launch Natal regardless of what you think when talking about your belief of games in or not in development. The divice will be launching with games it's that simple. I guess the rules are not the same for Microsoft.
Coolirus, stop making yourself look foolish and just read what he wrote. Bleem360 is not a PS3 fanboy. He's excited to know what games he can expect to play when Natal launches like any normal gamer would. Geez, defensive much? Paranoia FTL.
I got a disagree in my reply because I mentioned what he said made no sense as if he did not read or understand the article. Confirmation of a launch lineup for Natal is what was said. There was no mention of a list revealing each game so why was the Title stupid? That's fanboy logic saying they have to show the games for a launch lineup to be confirmed. The only people that are paranoid are PS3 fanboys that's why there are more of then in here than 360 fans. I don't know why you guys get so defensive over Natal
cooliris Seriously quit it now before you make a fool of yourself. You are getting disagrees cause you sound exactly like a fanb0y that you are accusing others of, meanwhile bleem was just agreeing with you.
Make a fool of myself? pay attention. How can you not find Bleems comment strange. "You are getting disagrees cause you sound exactly like a fanb0y" No its because this story is almost at 800 degrees because of people that "sound exactly like" PS3 fanboys getting more agrees than disagrees in the 360 zone. " nycredude - 2 hours ago PM Track Ignore 1.8 - It's confirmed the xbox is going the way of the Wii, and all of a sudden motion control is great for consoles. Unbelievable." Are you getting disagree because you sound like a trolling fanboy?
Cooliris What part of my comment there is fanboyish. Natal does make it more just like the Wii and so will the ps3 motion controller make the Ps3 more like the Wii. Why don't you relax and take a chill pill and stop getting so defensive. What you own stock in the company or something? Geez calm down already. And to think that Ps3 Fans don't also own, or maybe is contemplating owning a 360 is retarded. What, cause Ps3 fans have Ps3 they are not allowed to also own a 360, or they are not allowed to check out what the 360 might offer in the future? Who are you to judge and bash?
why wouldn't they have games at launch? you're just gona buy it for no reason? idiots
past addon devices always came with dumb little mini games, instead of full console games (not counting guitar hero and stuff, cause those are not console specific addonds). Natal will change that tradition, and will be the first addon device that will be treated like a console, and gets its own launch games, instead of mini games.
Yeah, pretty obvious huh? Dumb article really... considering it didn't even have the game list.
What games do YOU want to see, i have yet to see ANY true games in playable form. Why are people eating it up. I will never want to have to stand up in my living room with my parents talking away and accidentally triggering a response in an RPG. Please someone tell me how it will WORK in games.

Mod's are tools...........
Natal belongs in a dumpster.
says the guy who has not even seen the finished product, nor experimented with it or used it in any manner before. Yeah, your opinion sure means a lot. I guess we all should follow what you say. Jesus people, don't shoot something down before you even used it. Anyone who makes up their mind before they actually interact or try something is a f*cking idiot.
'Natal belongs in a dumpster." Translation: "It doesn't matter what it is. It's for the Xbox so we MUST hate it". Try before you trash talk.
Dev's just recieved the kits. So I don't expect several major titles at launch.
Expect Halo Reach to have it. That game has been in secret development for AGES, aka Peter Jacksons....or whatever the hell the old name was suppose to be. I think Halo Reach will have a hybrid of the technology where the controller is still firing device for the weapons but interaction also will take place. Man, that would be sick, imagine being in a game like gears and getting in cover behind your couch and peeking your head out to see enemies and if you get too close to someone using CQC with natal motions...God, that would be fun.
rare and lionhead have been working for years on this, together with MS. Other devs may have gotten it only a few months ago, but they have plenty of time to incorporate the controls into the games they release 2010. So expect at least 2 Full fledged AAA natal games, and some games that should be natal optimized. @above, i too think that halo reach will use Natal, but halo reach is not from peter jackson, Peter jackson doesnt work for bungie, peter jackson got his own studio, and is working on a different halo game.
I think Halo: reach will use Natal too, but not in some big, mandatory way. I think it will have some side actions that will use natal. I don't think they would take such a chance by having big tasks dedicated to natal, especially on a title like halo, they wouldn't want to alienate anyone.
@DeathroW22 I agree, but what better way of guaranteeing the success of Natal than by incorporating it in to a Halo game.
Are you kidding me? Nobody is going to want to use Natal in those games. Fable maybe, but Halo and Gears? What would you even do? Maybe squad commands (which will get old in about 5 minutes) for Halo, but there is nothing anyone would use Natal for in Gears. And I assume Conker is pure speculation on your part.
I think that a game like Halo Reach will have a "taste" of Natal...What better way to get natal up front and center for Microsoft...Some extra perks while using Natal,some side actions,but not main gameplay actions... Rare will come forth with a couple Natal based games,KI3 and either Conker or kameo 2,perhaps a Rare cart racer, would be my quess (and hope when mentioning Conker),along with some casual's mini game...Lionhead is sure to have something ready for launch...Along with some mini game's bundle for free at launch,that would get the ball rolling.... We shall see the true impact and promise soon enough,I am still curious,if not totally sold,but I am hopeful that Natal can be a step up in hardcore gaming,I am quite sure it will rise the level of Casual gaming.But it's the hardcore games I want to see take advantage of Natal,and bring us at least somewhat of an evolution if not a big step......
"rare and lionhead have been working for years on this, together with MS. " I could have sworn that Moleneux(sp?) said that Project Natal only started in December. I could be mistaken, perhaps that was Milo?
So it's confirmed that it will have launch games (doh!) and not what games it will launch with? Nice spin...
Its good to know tho, that instead of updated support for games who happen to come out, that we get games that where build with natal in mind, the moment natal is released.
Confirmed... Natal Sports Natal Music Natal Fit With the possibility of ... Natal Party Natal Kart And let us not forget the real AAA titles... Natal LiPS Natal In the Movies /jk
and Anti-Natal - where you have to deliver babies against the clock.
Nothing confirmed, but natal fans have the following expectations: Halo reach gears of war 3 Conker (rare) Fable 3 (lionhead) Thats what people looking forward to Natal are expecting now, and MS isnt dumb, they know what expectations they have to meet, to make Natal a success.
Ah Foxgod... so serious. Just having a little fun at MS' expense! It's pretty much a given that MS will crowbar Natal support in to all it's big IP's. I could see it being integral to Halo Reach (after all, look at the name of the game... Reach <- a gesture!!) Gears 3, probably optional, and for squad commands, maybe throwing grenades, but not the main control mechanics. Conker... Maybe - obviously Natal is getting huge support from Rare, but unless it's some dumbed down Conker game I would think it more likely to be a Viva Pinata party game geared towards gesture/voice controls. MS have more invested in Viva Pinata than Conker. Fable 3 - possibly, but I kinda hope not. I've always thought the human interactions in the Fable series were rubbish, so adding gesture/voice support may be the straw that breaks Fable's back for me.
Yet another disappointing and misleading headline.
I don't know how long you have been in the world, but every type of news has a play on words to get you to either click, stay tuned, etc. Just the way it is, but yeah I was expecting a list of titles as well.
F*** that motion sensing crap. Its just a piece of junk thats going to turn the 360 into a Wii clone.
if they can straight out the issues we saw past e3, (software modifications), then (assuming that ms is already mass producing the hardware) natal could come xmas 2010.
No this is Microsoft not Sony. You mixed them up silly!
The title is kinda misleading aint it? I mean did we really have to announce that there are games coming out the same day as natal, isnt that a no brainer, im gonna have to say waste of an article
Yeah the title was interesting. And, keep your Natal out of my Gears and Halo.
i'm happy that MS has took Natal mainstream...
