Project Natal
« on: June 09, 2009, 07:02:18 PM »
Project Natal for XBOX 360

While I see how everyone is calling this "Eyetoy for Xbox' I really have to disagree with them. That just looks incredible... the part where the kid roars to have his in game character 'fire his lazur' had me sold.

To rip it apart for the obvious simularities to camera controlled games before it is a little unfair in my opinion. The fact that its been done shouldn't matter, and people should encourage expanding older peripherals. Come on, that looks a lot more responsive and cool.

The amount of bashing I see it getting could be seen as yelling at Rockband, because 'Guitar Hero did it first'

Looks exciting, and even if Natal flops, you can still fall back on their excellent library. It's not like Microsoft is throwing out Gears of War, Call of Duty, Halo, Fallout, etc. when they're introducing this.

Yeah...its not an eye-toy for x-box. x-box alrady had one of those...it didn't work right. This one looks like it is actually a 3-D camera (I saw two lenses on it) and it has much better functionality than the eye-toy or x-box vision camera.
 
This is what you would call technological evolution. Yes, it is similar to the eye-toy, bit it is so much more advanced it isn't even funny.

As a tech demo, this blew me away... never seen a character so realistic. The part where he looks guilty about his homework was just so real its not funny. Thats scary, man...

For those who don't know, 'Project Natal' refers to the creator of this project. He was born here in Brazil, in a city named Natal.

(Natal means 'Christmas', for those who are curious about. When I first read i though "wtf we are still in June")
