LOL the Smooth Criminal video just got me hyped for a Natal Dancing Game!

It definitely is. The casual market is going to eat Natal up. Microsoft has a very capable product and from the beginning their aim has been towards chunking away at Nintendo.

natal will most likely have some DDR game or Dancing With the Stars game.avatars on the xne will now be controlled by you the player.stuff like that.

i also expect companies to copy music games like what eyetoy delivered in games like eyetoy play 1-3,eyetoy groove,etc on ps2.like this:

i think sony can get music games going just fine as well with PS MOVE.even better in some instances...like.....

drummania....beatmania..

virtual drumset

xylophone maybe?

trumpet solo...picture the move controllers and using the triggers for sound and buttons.the further the controllers are or how close produces the sound from the trumpet....AIR TRUMPET.

violin or any string instrument.picture one move controller as the violin and the other as the instrument.

getting the idea huh?great imagination huh?could be accurate since ps move is down to sub millimeter accuracy.

as for dancing?sony could do it/just have the pseye lock on to your feet instead of your hands.as the move controllers would act as your arms and hands.use this

and this guy as an example:
http://www.youtube.com/watc...
this guy used his FEET but configured his HANDS.ps move would tell the pseye where you are and lock on to your feet.not natal level but close.

but music games could definitely be done on ps3.developers just have to think like me.
