CC: Terminal Reality look to have a huge project on their. According to a few job listings, the Texas development studio is creating a Xbox 360 exclusive that's Natal enabled.
I think Ghostbusters would definitely work with Natal. Though i don't know if it'll sell that well :/
I think that would be pretty epic. I fully expect Bioware and Lionhead to be adding this to their amazing RPGs. Just think how much it would add to the gameplay? Milo-esque responses all throughout the game thanks to voice recognition and with the facial awareness it has thanks to its built in processor they could even know who you were. 2010 is going to own.
I want to know how they'll make hardcore games work.
i would really like to see how this would look done well, wish them the best of luck.
As a Sony fanboy, my hopes for Natal are like this.. Either it is going to be great (not expecting it to be) and it might FINALLY gives me a reason to buy a 360. Or it will flop showing it's weakness is not having a controller and I will laugh as this will be 360's last straw in the console war.
It's mostly just going to serve as further distraction from the 360 releasing games for the hardcore audience. The xbox lineup has already been poor lately, it doesn't need more distractions.
Jump and skip with Natal, Wand, or Wii Never. Grown men don't want to do this type of stuff. Get it in your heads
Can't wait for Natal. It won't be like the Wii and family games. It'll be amazing with FPS'!
Don't Dis miss it Before It's Out True You Won't Use It All The Time As It Will Have You As Thin As A Twig In No Time but don't dis miss it
Are you serious? You actually want to play an FPS with NATAL? Unless you like them dumbed down or ON-RAILS, NATAL can't work as a primary controller for an FPS game. Try playing an FPS game now, then look at your controller, every button you're using there needs to be replicated by NATAL. Movements alone goes to 9 different directions, that's 9 different inputs for NATAL, not only it's going to be a headache remembering them, it's going to be a chore playing it, and that's just the start, because the list goes on. Playing an FPS like this with NATAL, will be too clunky and frustrating to play, and goes against the PRIMARY RULE when playing videogames, which is to relax and have fun. The only way you could play an FPS with NATAL, is if it's made as a secondary/optional controller for grenades or flashing signs, calling artillery/airstrikes etc., things that you can already do with a normal controller, faster and more efficient too IMO. So my question is, why pay for one? As for not having FAMILY GAMES like the WII, sorry to break it to you dude, but the main reason MS got into NATAL, is because of the success of the WII with CASUALS. Yep, that means there'll be family games for NATAL, whether you like it or not. I'm not trying to deflate your optimism, but NATAL is going to be good at games that are made for it not shoehorned to fit it. It will be good for Arcade games, Work-Out games, Turn-Base/RTS, RPG (For NPC interaction/Menu), Point-and-Click Adventure games, Mini-game compilations/Family games, Board Games, Menu Navigation or games that does not require precise or fast inputs.
Look at me! I'm holding a pretend steering wheel! Faster, car, faster! Now I've got an imaginary gun! Pewww! Pewwww! Take that, Horde! Now, they could actually surprise me and make this not suck, but I'm not holding my breath. I emphatically do not want to play my games standing in my living room, jumping around like a hyperactive child. I'm not going to be ducking behind furniture, I'm not going to be pointing a pretend gun at the screen. Did anyone try MOH Heroes 2 on the Wii? It received great reviews but, speaking as a first person shooter fan, it was able to blow and suck both at the same time. You had to hold the Wiimote on your shoulder to launch a rocket. Anyone want to take a guess how much that actually takes you OUT of the game? A lot. Not to mention the constant frustration of when you pointed the Wii-mote just slightly off the screen, then you lose your cursor, then you have to take a second to find it again and guess what! You're now dead! Natal would have to have perfect, 1:1 tracking with zero lag to make this work and we've seen from the demos it's no where near that. And even if it was, I still wouldn't jump around my living room pointing a pretend gun at the screen. Natal is for the casual players and children. Leave this for party games because that's what it'll be good at and more power to them.
I hate to say it.... and I'm going by those famous words everyone knows but.... "I'm not a fanboy but....." I think Natal is just toooo slow for the games that developers would like to do with it. I mean, the wand has hardly any delay at all, it's quick in response. But out of every video we've seen of natal, it lags behind at least a half a second. Does everyone know that half a second lag, according to the rules of internet and ping, means 500ms ping? That's horrible...... Anyway, if it doesn't cost an arm and a leg, and it improves a great deal in its response time. I'll buy it for PC. YES, it's coming to pc.
Natal = Future and only on xbox360 while others non believers remain in the past.
so the future of a last gen console means it will finally catch up with ps3?.. HAHA yupyup but by then ps3 will have the wand to ahnialate Lag-tal so once again 3fixme will be doing the catch up HAHAAAA LOL bots are the funniest retards out here. i love it wen you idiots trash talk the ps3. it makes the 360 look even worse then it allready is lol..
I disagree, I tend to be neutral on the subject between the PS3 and 360 but I have rarely come across comments trashing the PS3 and praising the 360, but most often the other way around. For that matter I have still delayed buying the PS3 slim because people like YOU make it look bad. Before you call me a BOT, believe me when I say I love GAMES, and I love to play them too, doesn't matter which console, I just happen to have and Xbox 360 and I very much enjoy the games on it. Sadly I'm missing out on the PS3 side of the fence of games because I would not want to look like a tool like you. Oh and learn to spell.
hahaha...you made me laugh off at you. so you are hypocrite! to tell you the truth, so 360 fanboys and YOU made me lost interesting in xbox 360 because of your stupid comments. so i quote you, "Before you call me a Droid, believe me when I say I love GAMES, and I love to play them too, doesn't matter which console, I just happen to have and PS3 and I very much enjoy the games on it. Sadly I'm missing out on the 360 side of the fence of games because I would not want to look like a tool like you."
I have not attacked the console per se, I have expressed an interest in owning one. I, for one, can admit to some of the faults of the 360 as well as the praise it deserves, and I have the same to say for the PS3. However, despite my claim prior to the last which you, StraightASL, quoted, I have not attacked anything or anyone in particular. In response however, I've recieved 1 agree, and 4 disagree with you attacking me. Something to do with my affiliation? Yes, my last paragraph can be suited to any gamer, and that's good, I'm so glad it can apply, and hopefully one day I could omit the "tool" bit. But what have you done? You laughed in reply, you attacked me, and with disagrees to boot, why should I bother with the PS3? I mean, after all, you are proving my point.
That people can pass judgment about something they have never played with before. Based on the videos I've seen, I'm very excited for Natal, however, I cannot see it exlusively with FPS, maybe headtracking and lean should FPS titles allow for that but not much else. Besides that observation, I'm very curious about what Natal would have to offer and certainly I would demo it at Best Buy or Gamestop before I buy it. Oh and the lag, well I haven't noticed, maybe I haven't looked but the difference between Natal and the PS3 sphere and Nintendo Wii is that while Natal has to target and follow your body movements, the other two just transfer information wirelessly (Not to mention PS3's depth perception), thus eliminates the processing power needed to accurately follow your movements by instead following the wireless remotes. This processing power would take some time but half a second? That's a life or death difference in a game.
Only things NATAL makes me want in most games is mini games(ie opening doors, pushing buttons, picking ip ammo, or driving[driving and shooting could work together], and grenade throwing. Oh and full avatar body control in rock band/guitar hero. I just don't see how NATAL will work in capturing people. The Xbox Vision Cam was such a pile of crap. Hope this technology is some serious stuff. Not a gimmick. The PSph3re is badass, hope natal is, haven't had a reason to use my 360 in months. Not until Conviction, then it's going back into storage until I find out the price and floppage/success of natal.
MS gets them all!
eh, the only control scheme other then a controller what i would have the slightest hint of interest in is Sony's motion controller... which is by no means good for Sony since i honestly don't see myself going out to buy one when its available.
PS3 = 3rd place MS had a one year start, when the PS3 was released MS has 5 Million units sold. Now the difference is still 7 million. Sorry PONY, but with hardware sales like that (only 20-30k more perweek) you will need 5 years to be on PAR with MS!
I am very enthusiastic about Natal. Its a new technology being incorporated into gaming, perhaps this will mark a change in the gaming industry. Those who are against Natal, I feel sorry for you, because your judgement is not substantial. Have you seen natal in action? Nope. Have you ever tried Natal? Nope Have you even read about how Natal works with such games? Nope? And yet you made a judgement? Foolishness!
So basically no one still knows what Natal is and can do. It's all based on "IF". Xboys are the most dumbest people in the history of videogaming.
I don't want Natal to suck, but developers and console manufacturers have this certain habit of abusing innovation. I'd love a decent 3D platformer that uses natal, call me weird, but I like the idea of actually doing perfectly timed jumping puzzles.
Natal replace this much level of precision http://i29.tinypic.com/5x7s... ? Ummm I don't think so.
You could do that with the Wiimote. Natal can do it with 2 fingers (You still have the rest of the body to implement). See the diffence?
But know this. It hasn't even started yet. Natal is going to have massive support at launch. Every developer I have heard comment on Natal had nothing but praise for the tech. If this works, you will see the industry grow like you could have never imagine.
The Wii can't do that even with the Motion+, here's a video of the guy behind the Motion+ for the Wii doing a demonstration and look at how laggy it is http://www.gametrailers.com... Most of the movements of the wrist demonstrated in Sony's E3 demo are not even possible with the Wii.
