Microsoft are showing Project Natal during Tokyo Game Show 2009. Here's a video on how to play Beautiful Katamari on Project Natal.
Sony's wand and Microsoft's Natal make Nintendo look good, lol.
until kojima came out and said what he said I really hope developers mix natal in hardcore games,maybe at some segment of game,for example,you play modern warfare 2,play with 360 controller,enjoy the mission and suddenly you got do defuse this bomb quickly,you just drop your pad and control with your hands,or say commands,like "AIRSTRIKE" or hot wire in gta,or also get rid of quick time events,imagine RESI 4 events with natal or a simple scripted continues conversation in mass effect,you just say some words,lets say that mass effect 2 the developer include 1000+ voice commands to say in the game or in cinematic games like heavy rain or mgs,ms could build an entire strategy game based on voice command,don't expect voice commands to be free and infinite like milo which was fake I have a feeling that natal may(MAY) complete your game experience(if it done right),it may bring realism to conversations,quick time events,mini segments,make desicions with your voice in hardcore games while playing with your 360 pad for the rest of the game,it really could start a revolution like kojima said,let's just wait and see I really squeezed my brain to think of these things :) edit:another good use,use natal to save your motion capture in your avatar,when someone connect online and scroll to his friend list,he see his friend doing different animation(I know you all think of what im thinking right now LOLOLOLO xD)
do not want to do what the bloke in that video is doing. Ever.
People keep talking about using the controller with Natal. I thought the big push for Natal was 'Your body is the controller'.
Wow that looks so mind blowing. Never seen such amazing thing in my life. My favorite part was the innovative lag and the accurately, inaccurate movements.
"People keep talking about using the controller with Natal. I thought the big push for Natal was 'Your body is the controller'. " It is, but what most people seem to be fixated on is how Natal can be used with existing genres a games - games that weren't really designed with Natal in mind. The best compromise is for you to use both. Ideally, Natal should bring about a bunch of games that simply haven't been made yet due to the controller being limiting in some way. That's the plan, anyway, we'll see what happens.
@Ape007: Interesting ideas, I guess, but your girlfriend/roommate/parents are going to think your some sort of crazy person if you're sitting in front of the TV talking to yourself all the time.
natal is a rip off of the eye toy for the PS3..Sony ripped off nintendo with motion control..BOTH EQUAL FAIL!!
Anyone that thinks Natal and the Eye Toy are the same thing is sorely mistaken and incredibly ignorant. Do some research.
Yeah...my idea of gaming is to sit and relax. I'll stick to that thanks. If I want to move, I'll go outside like the rest of the normal world.
At least from what I saw. That made no sense to me whatsoever. It would be more frustrating than anything else.
There is a difference but what everyone seems to be excited about, the PSEye can also do. And by that I mean voice recognition and facial recognition. But yes there are differences mainly the camera itself. and I think incorporating voice recognition in games like FPS or RPG would be cool. Facial recognition.... I don't know... I don't want to be "fake smiling" or making other gestures at my tv every time I am talking to someone in town.
The whole call in air strike or for back up thing is an interesting idea. Just imagine talking and the members of your squad see you face on there screen. Natal seems like a good device for games like RB6 and Ghost recon.
Hideo Kojima. Nuff said.
Amen to that!
The way I see it, at least MS and Sony are showing you how the tech could be applied to different interest games, not just the target market of their motion efforts. None of this is optimal. I'm not playing Katamari like drunk Superman, and I'm not going to MacGuyver RE5 with a light bulb looking thing and half a controller. But it's still quite a bit more progress than was made with earlier attempts imo.
As i'm sure you all know by now, i'm a HUGE microsoft fanboy. But i have to admit, Natal doesn't have very good accuracy...
forget dev only had the natal dev kit less then a mouth.
I can lie too. ThatCanadianguy420. I for one love only one console. As I'm a tool. See? IMO: I know you own both consoles as do I.
I can Lie to! I really want to play with the sony dildo looking wand and watch Blu ray Pornzz! :)
@Jack You mean month? Capcom had the PS: motion controller for the same time and look how accurate it was in RE5 @Eiffel I don't love "One" console.. I love my PSP,PS2,PS3,PC,Original Xbox. Unlike you i don't reject reality, instead, i embrace it. And within that reality it's clear to see that 360 is a faulty dvd player with no good games.ESPECIALLY in 09. @Natsu Hey, Dildo's aren't my thing..But if that's what you're into than all the power to ya. I wouldn't mind some high quality blu-ray porn tho :)
um that kinda looked good :O? guy playing it look like his DJ'ing hmm
weird holding nothing but use your hand to guide the ball... seems not too accurate either.
Imagine someone walking in on you doing that?
driving with natal,aside from it being so stupid,your hands simply cannot shaped on air,the diameter changes a lot,that means if I get my hands closer the car will steer more???
Just imagine MGS Rising uses Natal, Kojima would find crazy ways to incorparate voice recogntion, face recognition etc into a MGS game...
but its a little bit gimmicky hope they dont make a lot of shovelware fore ps3 and 360 keep the @%#^& on the wii
There are games on the Wii that look as if there was 10 hours of dev time spent on them. Gamers speak with $$$ so no buy = no go. The Wii crowd is mixed with non-gamers though and it will be hard for M$ to get those guys on a 360.
Ehh. Not really interesting. Katmari is a great game but who really wants to guide it with your hands? And Natal is not really accurate right now.
Not at all. You can see the guy in the video trying to steer right and the ball keeps going left for a second or so.
Not for this game exactly but look at the other videos on Natal. Hopefully the accuracy will improve. Not that I care of because I'm looking forward to sony's motion controller instead
I facepalm at natal. Just because you can doesn't mean you should.
26 sec!!!??? nathal project will not sucessful.
"nathal project will not sucessful." your english is not sucessful.
Well we can wait for Nintendo to take motion control to the next level, the younger pups can't get it right. EDIT:Also, lol at the streetware to make it look cool. HAHAHA! "Yo look at me right, I'm playing da latest game with my slightly off center cap and me shorts. Bo selecta."
I am sure Nintendo is already brewing something up for the next console race.
That looks like about 5 minutes of fun. The Xbox 360 and PS3 seem to be going backwards with this tech. The reign of the Wii is over and now companies start to copy them....little late in the game.
Yeah Nintendo have probably been designing the next level of interactivity and are laughing at the copycats. So late in the game, so very late.
Natal Will start a revolution. the PS3 lightbulb D1ldo will not
i actually like what you called lightbulb. it looks pretty good. it will take time to get used to.
LOL!! really just like the xbox 360 and that revolutionary DVD drive and that revolutionary malfunction rate? Face it dumba** microsoft doesn't revolutionize anything especially in the game industry that title belongs to Sony..
Well 360 DID have HD-DVD. That was revolutionary, right???
WOW eye toy anyone? Either way looks like it warrants the attention span of a goldfish. I mean really you wanna play like that for 2 hours? and on top of it playing katamari a boring a** game. Don't waste your time microsoft this won't pick up mark my words
What are you five?
Natal Fitness, Natal might be fun once in a while, but I'm sure I wouldn't want to flail arms in front of the TV when I want to "relax" and play games.
Natal yoga or pilates lolol.. I don't see it being a hit, but you never know.
I want to play videogames, not do aerobics.
Or scratch on imaginary turn tables.
Atleast it works right? so much down talk and the same fanboys were saying like Good stuff about RE5 with the PS3 wand but the game had to be played with both the Dualshock X Wand and the guy couldnt even pick up Items X punch and kick the zombies. smh hypocrites
Why for the life of me, would anyone pay $100 for this? When you can play all the games shown (burnout, space invaders, ricochet and katamari), better on a controller that comes free with your system.
who Ever said that Natal was going to cost 100bucks? please provide the Link.. what seem to be the Plan for Microsoft is Release a new xbox who will have Natal In the Box so you dont have to pay for it as an extra.
"what seem to be the Plan for Microsoft is Release a new xbox who will have Natal In the Box so you dont have to pay for it as an extra." No. Instead they will jack up the cost of the 360.
There was a article about this . http://kotaku.com/5367460/p... Apparently this game works as shown and works in the dark .
If you guys haven't noticed it yet, look at which way the person is moving his hand, and then take a look at how the ball doesn't move, and he just crashes into a house, it's right at the end of the video.
I just noticed that he looked like a right prat playing it.
Anyone noticed that despite the apparent "lag", most journalists seem to be commenting on how responsive it is? Here's Kotaku on this very video - http://kotaku.com/5367460/p... "Playing around with the game for a few minutes I was impressed with how responsive the controls seemed to be, allowing me to move around moving objects fairly deftly and pick up only the items I wanted to with the ball. It was a fun way to play an already fun game. One that would inevitably expand the potential audience for the game."
Need to see something revolutionary as already claimed.
Magical... And this is the stuff that caused Developers to be stunned? Are we talking about the same thing here? I mean it says project Natal, and has a xbox logo in the back...so it must be Natal but I swore it was the Eye Toy, i mean Eye Toy did that 5 years ago.
looks kinda lame. I would think ti would maybe make you do the actions of the Prince walking and pushing the katamari that would be cool.
wtf??? thats the exact same thing as the EyeToy. Moving or movement with guestures. By the way Natal still lags and not accurate. Might want to work on that before showing. Looks bad already.
whos the [email protected] in the back with the neck beard?
Guitar Hero 6: Project Natal, to play the game you need a air guitar, air drums, air guitar bass & air mic. then start rocking out jackass style.
Comment: but I swore it was the Eye Toy, i mean Eye Toy did that 5 years ago. Resopnse: I can't remember any developer backing the Eyetoy in this way. Maybe they are bias, like the press who keep saying how impressed they are. Or just maybe there is a big F'ing difference! You decide.
I love that arguement."MS have more dev support".Well if that's the case it can't be a re packaged Eyetoy in a post Wii world then.I'm yet to see a single demo that can't be done(in a weaker form)on Eyetoy.Problem is,that when I say Eyetoy,I mean the PS2 one.I played with tech demos on PS2 Eyetoy that did fire/water and Anti Grav(game)let you steer a game by tilting your arms,accerate by bending your knees and jumping by(you gueessed it)jumping.All on PS2.Obviously Natal is more advanced but the reason Sony(and rightly so)have gone for a controller is because Humans are tactile.People also seem to miss that PS Eye plus "Wizard stick"(PSM3s name for it)combines the best features of both Natal and Wii with better accuracy than either.It will allow Wii ports(good business decision)with some Natal possible as well. Personally,it will be my 5 year old that wants motion control.I prefer a pad and probably always will.I can live without any motion systems.
Natal the unresponsive controller this is the next gen powerglove everyone thinks its badass but its gonna fall flat on its ass.
I think the belief Natal will fail is wrong.MS already have Press support beyond what they deserve.That's what happens when you give all journos free consoles and online accounts(and I mean personally,not company ones).That's why I love reading journos telling us Live is worth the money.Helps encourage them to slate your 2 competitors that don't give all their stuff away. They will spend/lose more money again next year advertising it and proabably sell at a loss and pay devs large sums just to chuck some crap on it(big names too).Money like MS gives you a huge advantage in any business,even against established brands. This will not be the revolution they say it will be but the press will make look like it,just as they did 360s success over PS3(despite slower sales at a artificially cheaper price)and then those same journos will go home and pick up a pad to play proper games.
