If there was any doubt left in your mind that Japanese developers are on board for using Project Natal, Joystiq has got seven fancy, high-powered Japanese developers ready to convince you of their dedication in video form.
Show me AAA software for it then.
there will not be aaa software for natal.
I can definitely see Natal becoming popular in Japan. They've always like alternative ways to play like that, and this is something that's new and never has been done before. And before some moron says "PSEye" or "Eye Toy" or whatever it's called, uh, no, it's not Natal.
It's a YEAR AWAY!!!!! you freaking sony fanboy!!! jesus christ. God I hate all thes fanboys on this site. I currently have a 360 and I am importing the FFXIII PS3 bundle in December. I can't wait to get it! Just play the damn games on whatever system they are out on and stop complaining about everything Microsoft is doing.
They're kids. I can't picture older people with normal social lives being that passionately against a company. I'm a 360 fanboy, but I think Sony's a great company and am considering getting the Slim somewhere down the line. The kids come on this website and never acknowledge anything positive about MS and like to go and his "disagree" as often as possible. And for some reason, I can only picture kids using the terms "Xbot" "Chatbox" "Flopbox", etc.
lloyd, If this was a PS3 project you would be creaming your pants right now. I have a 360 and am getting the FFXIII bundle in December. just play the games and stop fanboying.
This has been a PS project for several years (PSeye)
Natal is not the eyetoy and is aimed in a different direction. When I think eyetoy I think wiimote with much better accuracy but when I think natal i think virtual reality which is exactly what it is.
OFF TOPIC WHERE THE F!CK ARE THE NEW GAMES? TGS 2009 Sucked if you ask me. No new games? what in the world.
Yeah, TGS is usually pretty disappointing.
The show was slow but I was glad to see some Crackdown2, dead rising, and Ninty nine nights 2 footage.
TGS isn't about announcing new games. It's just a place for Sony and sometimes Microsoft to brag about their sales and other little nuggets of info
First it was lazy developers, then media bias, now paid opinions. You guy are saying that all Japanese developers have no honor. They would lie and deceive their fanbase for a few bucks. Come on guys. Sony is not the only creative player of the big 3. Stop the hate, it will eat your heart
No it's more in japanese nature to be polite to your face then talk sh!t behind your back.
Eh, personally I don't buy it.
GOOD FOR YOU!!!!!
are a dying breed. i'm honestly expecting apple to get into the mix. and then the casual takeover will REALLY be official.
i still don't think the pswand and natal will dent nintendo wii more so for natal because there is no control but only time will tell
The only reason Wii even got so much attetion was because of hardcore gamers on both sides hyping it up. Natal is getting more hype than the Wii ever did and the word no controller is really going to catch on.
Correction: Japanese Devs love MS $$$$$
It's amazing and somewhat funny how much this has been talked about without any interesting software to back it up.
i will learn how to speak mandarin and cantonese as my new hobby. disagree all you want with me. i "ain't" sipping sony's, micro's, or ninten's Kool-Aid.
Natal and Sony's magic wand is for the casual market, if Xbox owners think that these developers are going to make games for the hardcore market, they're being naive and foolish. Don't be so quick to praise them yet.
i dunno about you, but if i had NATAL at home, i'd love: - an interactive boxing game - an interactive fitness/aerobics game not hardcore enough? well i guess then you can always use the standard controller, right? It's not like that's going away....
yeah aerobics games are HARD..... wait for it....... CORE..... /s
Man just think about it, They can use it with the controller to do awesome things. I don't know why every time someone brings up Natal everyone just thinks of running around your living room. There are endless possibilities with this technology, even if it just helps you navigate menus faster there are so many things you could do with it. That is why the developer get paid the big bucks because they are visionary's not haters. I have always said there are 2 kinds of people when it comes to work, those who look at something and figure out how to do it, and those who look at something and try to figure out every reason it can't be done.
and yet we are seeing games made or incorporate PS wand. As the saying goes. Action speaks louder than words.
Well, if we are really technical, then MSFT already integrated Natal with Burnout Paradise. So, there is one example of the Natal integration. But, Natal was only recently produced (possibly a year or so) while the PSeye/wand theory was present for a while (since the PS2). As a result, we can see how games are more easily integrated with Sony's tech. But then again, they have really only shown off 2 games as well (RE5 and LBP). So both are in the early stages of work in all fairness. I suspect we will see much more at the GDC conference where developers, MSFT, and Sony will show off the tech goods.
Why is MS spending so much time getting people to say they love Natal and not show anything in public with it?. All these vids are just people praising Natal and yet we haven't seen anything revolutionary as they claim. What i am saying is MS is spending more time getting people praise Natal and not show enough to prove it.
Of course when it comes down to the fine details it is marketing. That is the key to build hype and anticipation as well as more support for the product. It is the same thing with say an iphone type product or even a new console. They want to show that developers or what have you are supporting the product and it's potential (of course everything is potential). Also, you cannot say this an underhanded or copycat tactic because it is practiced by all companies. It is one of those fundamental things that a company must do to show the possibilities. Additionally, if you are saying that they need to prove it with a real full fledged blockbuster game, then no they have not done so. Something like that will undoubtedly take time. Remember, it was only revealed at E3 2009, so it was not that long ago that we actually knew of its existence. On the other hand, they have shown demonstration and done interviews about the product. It was demoed on a Japanese show (there was an article about it). The fact that a potential patch could easily be integrated with Burnout Paradise (I am assuming that) and the minigames are already developed, MSFT is taking the necessary steps to ensure that Natal is launched properly. I don't know if that answers your question**
Natal is going to be a big deal, I can't wait for next E3.
I see some of you actually believe the Japanese will care for the Xbox 360 now that Japanese developers "love" Project Natal. Need we remind you that Japanese developers have already put their efforts on the Xbox 360 and failed over and over and over again
No amount of paid interviews will convince the mass consumers otherwise. Natal was pronounced a flop the day it was revealed at E3. The most ridiculous attempt at revolutionizing gaming.
I wonder if there are any AFRICAN developers who love Project Natal
the japanese know M$ is the best.
We devs love M$ money to fund games for PS3 :)
you're a dev? who do you work for, kojima? wheres ZOE3!!
I agree that MS does pay sertain people but I highly doubt they paid all of them lol
payed MONEY not unusual.
...the 360 is a FLOP in Japan and FFXIII's Bundle will put a spear in its chest for the FINAL BLOW. ...so don't expect the 360 to pick up in sales in 400 days from now. The install base will be non-existent.
So much hate because its on another system. I thought this was a hardcore game site.... Hardcore gamers LOVE games regardless of the system. The hate for MS or Sony because a person does not own one of the systems is astounding. Only 12 year olds do this. Do people really need to justify their purchases by being blind fanboys? Just enjoy the system you have without bashing others...especially something you never tried.
Wasn't the Wiimote meant to bring something new? 1)Buys a Wii....2)Sets it up....3)plays it for a week....4)Puts it away in a closet for the rest of eternity.
bububububut MS PAID THESE GUYS TO SAY THIS
