I think Sony should upgrade the PS-Eye to 1.3 MP also but I know people will cry about having to buy a new camera. but I wouldn't mind.

Never before in my life have I seen the video game industry so galvanized against something (in this case, motion controls) only to turn around and worship it after a single E3 conference.

Gwave, I dont understand your comment. I think you mean to say the gamers not the gaming industry. It just wouldnt make sense for the game industry to shun such a movement that was bound to happen.

Gamers shunning it makes more sense. Change can be a difficult thing to embrace but it is needed to evolve. In this case you can really only sit and control a game the same old way for so long. It was time to find new ways to interact and at some point maybe we will get to the "holodeck" idea of interactive entertainment.

You dont have to like it but you do have to accept that change is coming.

Having it built in can be good for two things
They can increase hardware sales
They can sell a console at a loss whereas a peripheral cannot be justifiably sold at a loss

The one negative

If it's within the console rather than exterior you'd have to place you console in a place that allows it to see you, meaning, right in front of your tv. A bundle would make more sense.

How exactly is this a rumor? We know Natal will be out in 2010 and we know it'll be bundled with 360 so...

This is considered Top News in the gaming journalist world. especially when its common knowledge or they just a copy off other related articles that is making its rounds.

"Aptina to be sloe supplier of 1.3-megapixel CIS for new Xbox 360, say sources" Kinda hard to take this seriously if they can't fix "sloe" to sole!

Considering the horrible grammar in this, I'm not sure it isn't just a terrible translation and "console" is simply referring to the actual Natal device.

*snicker* Christmas? Yes, but not this one. See ya next year. Right on time for the Wii HD and Sony's new wand. 2010 is starting to look a little crazy. Looking forward to being broke for most of it.

natal is also the name of a brazilian city the creator lived near as he grew up...
