David Cage 'frustrated' by Microsoft's 'sci-fi' Natal presentation.

Destructoid: Quantic Dream has already talked up its interest in motion controls, having even at one point designed its own controller for Heavy Rain. Vague hints have even been dropped that a future update could bring PlayStation Move support to its latest hit, Heavy Rain, as well.

Well, it was greatly unrealistic, had holes to poke in everywhere, like the copyright of scanning a skateboard into a game, suuuurrre...

Elven65214d ago

It might not scan the actual model into the game, most likely just recognizing the basic shape of an object and guessing at what it most likely is. Perhaps a bit like the card games that use the Xbox Live Vision Cam and PS Eye only a bit different.

Regardless, that E3 video was just a promotional "bull shot" of sorts, they even have a disclaimer at the end of the video I believe.

Its ok Cage, time to get your head out of Sony's a** now.

By the way a Sony dev criticizes the 360 and this thread is going to be overfull with PS3 fanb0ys kissing his ass like no tomorrow (its already started by the way, the usual fanb0y pack is already here (below)) , though the guy has obviously never even tried the device for 5 seconds.

360 dev talks about a PS3 game, doesnt even diss it and heres the reaction: http://www.n4g.com/xbox360/...
The hypocrisy is simply baffling.

edit:@fangblade: Can say the exact same thing about the dev in the link I posted. Funny its ok when its a Sony dev but not when its a 360 dev. Hypocrits.

FangBlade5214d ago (Edited 5214d ago )

Dont worry Cage, we already know that.

@Cold

He didn't diss Natal, he just stated the obvious - that presentation was sci-fi.

"this thread is going to be overfull with PS3 fanb0ys kissing his ass like no tomorrow"

that's weird, seeing as a 360 fanboy/ps3 basher like you already got ahead of the ps3 fanboys you're talking about.

EDIT: Oh? And you think 360 fanboys aren't the same? Only 360 fanboys post a lame N4G pending article that has nothing in it except a link to an article saying Sony is doomed or whatever. You talk about hypocrisy, why don't you look at the mirror first

Cold 20005214d ago (Edited 5214d ago )

I came in this thread and Gradient, Parapraxis were already having a field party. Fanbgblade was in to kiss Cage's ass like a second after posting my comment.

You guys are too obvious. Before clicking a thread I know already whats being said in it.

@blaze: I maintain. You are hypocrits :)

ThanatosDMC5214d ago

Cold, you make a good point. What can they diss about the PS3?

ALFAxD_CENTAURO5214d ago

David Cage is not even a 1st Party Developer from Sony. I don't know what are you saying David Cage is part from Sony.

Blaze9295214d ago (Edited 5214d ago )

With all due respect, he said he's only seen it. Has he had the chance to TRY the latest version of Natal? Did Microsoft send Quantic Dream a kit to work with and make games for? No, so he should stfu and wait and see.

He says its possible but not to the extend the vid wants us to believe (again, just talking about that 1 year old E3 video he SAW). So what extent would it be possible then? I'm not really seeing different branches. Either you can scan your own objects to use in the game or you can't. And they weren't talking about the mo-cap, they were talking about the visuals and graphics being un-even at times.

Man I hope Microsoft delivers at E3 2010 so shut all these people up. And if they don't, then they'll have nothing but a bunch of egg on their face. Until then, I think we should all stop ridiculing it and just WAIT and SEE the LATEST version of Natal.

STK0265214d ago

actually, for the skateboard, it could very well happen. Seeing this was a skateboarding game, such game could scan the board and apply it as a skin, it wouldn't recreate it in 3D, just a simple skin.

Triella5214d ago

is that Natal misleading advertising is more or less what the PSEye can do : scan objects and put them into a game

Montrealien5214d ago (Edited 5214d ago )

I like those kinds of promo videos, they are aiming a little high sometimes but at least it puts presure on the devs to actually deliver something close to it, you know, like Sony at E3 05. Some of those games showed to us back then still look like something out of a sci-fi, but at least it pushed to dev to deliver stellar games like Killzone 2 and Motorstorm.

and Cold, chill out a little, you just look like some frustrated dude getting trolled. This aint serious business.

AridSpider5214d ago

Microsoft Natal Event...just 2 more months. Until then I think everyone needs to shut up about something they have no idea how it'll work.

bjornbear5214d ago

yeah where were you when Remedy's dev said HR mo-cap wasn't evened out, even though he hadn't played HR yet?

oh thats right, fapping xD

on a more serious note - not many people have tried natal at all, so what's to expect?

+ you don't need to try Natal to know what the E3 09 video suggested was, for the lack of the better term, bullcrap =)

Gue15214d ago

cold the real question is: what the heck is your problem?

you say that they are predictible but you always get trolled, always! There's something wrong around here or I am missing something? I mean, you're alway whining like a little b1tch for exactly the same reasons that you call predictible...

ProA0075214d ago

So was the entire Sony E3 2006 PS3 part of the conference sci-fi? I mean, we saw videos but nothing has been delivered to the 'extent Sony made it seem'. Games have come close but not to the extent the videos made me believe.

...right

MmaFanQc5214d ago

cry moar, your tears are delicious.

let MS balls go, your grabing them way too hard.

Lord Vader5214d ago

Awwww, somebody's butt hurts.

Christopher5214d ago

He's right and we know it. But, Sony did the same thing with the EyeToy, just not at an E3 presentation like Microsoft.

Know you've been scolded already, but I'm pretty sure the difference is that instead of 360 devs citing PS3 shortcomings as reason why they don't bring their games over, meanwhile there are higher quality games on it, you have a PS3 dev criticizing the presentation of an add-on who's abilities have yet to be fully defined much less actually demonstrated.

he summed up N4G in one post.

ScrappyDoo5214d ago

You know Natal will be huge when there are more Playstation fanboys interested than Xbox fanboys.

Nike5214d ago

Newsflash 'Cage': It's marketing. People in the mainstream believe Natal will be able to do all that cool stuff just like they believe Heavy Rain to be a pusher of video game pornography. The only people who go for advertising like Sony's ad where they rip on Natal are the fans.

Sure they may be misleading people but they've got Spielberg. You've got a fake last name. Complain as much as you'd like but it won't change people's tendencies to form their own perceptions.

I have deleted my comments in this article because motion controls are for the casuals and discussions on motion controls are for even lamer than the controls themselves.
