A unique view on Natal and its impact on hardcore gaming. Gamersworldbd.com writes: Ah, we all remember that line as the G-man ushered us into a new era of FPS games, or more commonly known as Half Life 2. Will Natal do the same?
any gamer out there who thinks otherwise are in for a sharp shock,we all saw the unresponsive demo at e3,only games itl truly work with are wii-sports type of games and even that novelty wears off very quickly,and whats more hilarious is the core demographic of 360 users are shooter fans, even sonys offering which although will feel better as you are holding something physical will not replace controllers natal will be all hype and little substance and thats the cold hard truth
PS3 motion controller will also sell a lot but end up sitting around like PSEye does now.
I'm looking forward to some Natal RTS games. C&C could be good.
It could be a fun thing on occasion with friends or the kids. But after working all day and getting a chance to relax and game. I'll be sitting in my lazy boy for that.
You forgot to mention 3D TV..
Natal is not being made to cater the hardcore crowd. Sorry to burst your bubble, but it's being made to capture that easy to woo Wii crowd who get excited by seeing anything that is 'gimmicky'. Will Natal sell well? Odds are yes, it will see well mainly cause of MS's marketing, but there are many factors which will affect it like how the PS controller are received and probably the most crucial factor is whether a Wii2 is coming soon. Things will be pretty clear next E3 as to what all companies have to offer in this new motion control genre. But one things for sure, Natal is probably MSes last shot at the Japanese market. I can probably see them throwing 2-3 Japanese RPGs implementing Natal. If MS lose Japan, then they WILL land 3rd this gen.
Just get a 360 guys and Natal, it's obvious you want it as much as you troll about it on N4G.
That the 360 fanboyz are going to brag about Natal doing better than Eyetoy? You guys need to worry more about what you intend to do to contribute to help improve your community or earn a living. This fanboy rivalry is eating away at your souls.
voice control? EndWar was released 2 years ago i can't think of any other scheme that tops m/kb as the best controls for RTS
And what of the PS3 wand? I'll admit it has more potential for ACTUAL games, but it's not going to have the mass market appeal of Natal. I actually feel sorry for Sony's position right now. It's the better motion system, but it's not going to get the same amount of exposure. The mass market will see it as simply a Wii clone, while Natal actually does something new. (No Eyetoy comparisions please. There is no comparison if you've been paying attention.)
And you know this because.........you can see into the future? LOL... I love this site. LOL
Everytime I see a preview of Natal it just looks worse and worse. Remember the pathetic burnout video that basically confirmed it won't work with racers, now we saw the HL video that basically confirmed that it won't work with shooters(all he did was move the camera around awkwardly and struggle to press simple on screen buttons, imagine shooting with that amount of inaccuracy). The e3 video also showed a delay with the response time of natal. I hope they can make it work but it looks like it might even struggle to work with casual games. I'm not impressed with what I've seen so far to say the least.
i dont know wot every1 is gettin worked up about.there isnt a game on the xbox now that i want to play with natal.im lookin forward to playin them wii type games with it.with my family.like that riccohet game.and other casual games they dev for it.games tailored to it.
I never saw Natal in that video. That could be old footage from the Z-camera on which Natal is based. It could be completely fabricated. Just relax kid. You will see real footage very soon. May before mid January when M$ has the demo and best use ideas for developers.
either way anything we've seen so far has been very uninspiring so you can understand why I'm sceptical... kid.
author...psst....go try a Wii for FPS.....than you wouldnt even think about writing a junk blog like this
Motion Control definitely isn't for hardcore gaming.
Natal will end up like the PS Eye : it won't do s***
Tell me when they make motionless control
From Id software get a life gabe is a fat sack of sh1t
