Maybe, just maybe, there are markets for videogames beyond just you and I:w00t::w00t::w00t:

there so far away from the screen, my rooms way too small if you required anywhere near that space.

Not much different from watching people play on the Wii......................

I wonder how many injuries there are going to be when people play these games in rooms with furniture.....

That was the funniest thing ever!!!

not a good advert

natal sucks but it wont be the end of the 360.
it survived the bombardment of RROD's and suffered at the hands of blu-ray but its still going.
but then again this would be strike 3.....so.....

anyways, be honest, did anyone realistically think this was going to do what the "product vision" fooled people into thinking?
oh and notice how much space they take despite microsoft saying you dont need much room to play it.

I must be missing something here - a family playing together, fairly unabashed, smiling, looking daft with a game mimicking their bodies movements fairly accurately.

Isn't that how the Wii managed to sell 70,000,000-odd consoles?:?

Could it be that a person with a PSN avatar might be slightly biased against anything Microsoft produces:-D:-D

I cringed when I saw it first time, I wonder how many others thought the same thing initially. however, if they can make his work could be brilliant. Count me in, if you cant change, you cant improve, after all:p

And yet Sony will still keep plodding on with theirs.

They both should just stop now.

The Wii were first to it though, so most probably a lot of people actually have a Wii now.

Who the hell would want a copy of the same thing it just ends up lying there for ages!?

I've got a wii, ps3 and 360 and i really dont like the look of natal feels like such a copy! the move is even more of a copy!

This will take ages to get popular with advertising like that

You looked an equal fool with "your in the movies" but it was featured by "exec" heavily at E3, the game bombed badly. But the mentality remained, hence natal, and this is reconfirmed.

So far I think the Move looks a lot better than these jiving antics.

D.

Are they not going to be selling this for something like 70 notes, Just trying to offer some type of family interaction as does the wii. ( what have the wii sold well over 100 million units, that's alot of wii!!) Although it looks cheap I recon Microsoft will make a nice little profit with this.
This you tube clip does it no promo favours as they look like a bunch of clowns on Acid!!

What are you talking about?:?

@ the OP - Total rubbish.

Natal won't spell the end of Xbox, unless every game is released to be used in conjunction with Natal.

Microsoft and games developers aren't completely stupid, there will still be controller only games etc. There's just the chance of integration with Natal too - optional.

Rubbish ? You can see where the focus and budget of microsoft is going, its clearly not aimed in my interests at all if significant resources are allocated to this crap. Same way that Sony game The Getaway was dropped and they had to work Eye Pet instead . At least Move at fighting games and SOCOM.

Who else does? Surely most people would wait until E3 at least when we know more about it, what games will utilise it, how well it works, what price point it'll hit etc.

you obvisouly havent gathered enough opinions.

i dont need to wait for e3 to know its useless for most genres and its clealy aimed at casuals.

if you want to keep your hopes up until e3, go ahead but i know when im right about things, especially when their this obvious.

So whose opinions should I gather?

Plus, I think it's aimed at the casual market, so I don't think that can be held against it - don't worry though, I hear there's a price drop coming so you don't have to be a fanboy anymore. You can join us normal people who don't feel the need to defend any particular console all the time:thumbsup:

Natal and Move aren't for me, I sold my Wii for the very reason I don't want to get up off my chair to play a game.

You either buy into this type of gaming or you don't. Not sure what benefit there is to badmouthing one system's version of motion gaming over another.

i didnt defend any console.......i said natal will suck.

let me ask you a question.......do you buy things you dont like? (it could be anything, not even related to gaming)
i know the answer will be NO, so why do you expect me to buy things i dont like?
it doesnt make sense does it?

anyways, when it comes out we shall discuss it again, hope to see you then.

go on websites which have articles about natal and read the comments section.
i can guarantee you im not the only one who thinks natal will suck.

it should be common sense really that out of millions of gamers there will be atleast 1 other person who doesnt like it, shouldnt even require a search.

heres an example with plenty of anti-natal comments

Wouldn't the 'sixthaxis' be an apt name for a Sony-centric website?

as long as you got a specification which says "you are the controller" that should automatically tell you half the genres are gone out of the window and theres no precision in the games it will have.
ofcourse if this was the year 2050, our expectations would be different......but were in 2010 and on a commercial level, this technology just cant be sucessful.

dont even need a picture or video let alone play it to know that.
