Nope. And if the voice recognition is anything like that Fandango bitch you can bet I will not be the only one to dispose of my Xbox via Nuclear explosion.
The idea of using this with fighting games is neat for a second. Remember all the trouble with people destroying TV`s and fragile furniture with their awesome new Wii remote? Lets replace the remote with a foot and see how fun that gets. Microsoft will have to put a big ass sticker on the box saying "If you put your foot through your TV its your own dumb fault".
I seriously doubt there would be offline multiplayer fighting but can you imagine how that would play out? Online multiplayer could work tho and would be hilarious. Of course some dumb kid will take it too far and attempt an Guile like Somersault kick and break his neck. Same with skateboarding game.
The video from before with Milo or whatever was somewhat impressive. This is not
CAN`T YOU PEOPLE SEE!? They are trying to get us to move and exercise! don`t be blinded by this fancy stuff, you can`t just chill out on the couch anymore with a bag of chips, you hafto be moving around all the time. wtf is up with that!?
I think it will be great, but most people won`t buy it. requires to much space and moving around.
We could just aswell "game" outside seeing as this is what they are leading us up to.
"introducing the new wii basketball! now a real ball! dribbel around in the local courtyard! invite friends over the telefone or just ask them directly! purchase now and get an extra ball incase you wear it out!" no one else see this coming?
(IAB needs to get a reply system on the comment board)
They showed the camera about 4 times in the vid if you were actually paying attention
its gonna cost a mint though.
REALITY CHECK 101
Does those new motion controlers perform better then the normal controlers that everyone are used to?
Answer is "NO" and you know it.
Don`t be total tards and stop paying attention to this sort of hype.
For the sake of that family, do not say a limited number or else death awaits you with huge feet!!!
And an awesome beard!!
Natal looks to have a few lag issues and Wii is known to be choppy, granted I haven`t seen much on Motion Plus so they may have improved it more then I`m aware of.
I`m more of an RPG person regardless. The motion gimmicks are neat but I want to see some ridiculously crafty applications before I`m seriously impressed.
As for the fanboy thing, just let your posts do the talking. If you feel a need to defend yourself from being accused, there`s probably something there. "Ok, i`m no fanboy but MS drating sucks!" yeah, real neutral there buddy.
and just saying that i dont like microsoft(which is true, but who really likes MS anyway?) doesnt change the fact that the whole thing has been there before. especially that fighting thing in the beginning-eyetoy kinetic combat.
im not saying that the system itself sucks, this is a promotional teaser, and therefore shouldnt be used to judge natal. MS says it will be awesome, but well, they said the same thing about vista and so on.
what i criticised about it is that they promote it as something completely new and innovative, even though it is just an improvement of something thats already there(if it works out as MS claims)
and no, im not a fanboy, i hated sonys world-changing sixaxis controller, and nintendos never seen before, all-new motion controller, which has been created before as an additional controller for sega dreamcast.i dont see any problem in taking a good idea and improving it, but claiming to be the inventor of somethi
I`d much rather Xbox get their act together and fix the effing systems before even thinking of releasing this. I`ve had my 360 for a month, it freezes on every game, and this is a replacement for my year old console which had a terrible defect. -.-
honestly, thats bullpoo.
it might happen, but when u watch ur movie, wont it stop every time u cough, sneeze, burp, yawn, MOVE, JERK OFF, EVEN GET A BONER AT ALL. and when you try to pause, wont you turn off the console?
I`m still sticking with my N64.
I`m not saying the system won`t be real, but the video isn`t.
And the "Why don`t you buy it??" *sits on couch and thinks to herself "because then I would have to leave the house"*
Someone fill me in on what`s going on- I mean, that whole, "How many push-ups can chuck norris do." And then, there was that thing where the guy said, "Millard Filmore is correct," as if it were recorded already...
Maybe Microsoft is showing us what they wish they could do?
MrBowserpuff: How is this tech a ripoff of either the wiimote or the eyetoy? The eyetoy is a camera and the wiimote is a remote with a gyro in it. It`s not even remotely the same. It uses cameras yes, but that`s about as far as it goes. Way to go on picking that image as well, cause it`s not like you`ve just sought out the goofiest part available, you also sped it up about 10 times :
I-am-bored... You`re getting slower.
Slightly irks me that`s what Natal seems like.
I might just get one though.
Really, they wouldn`t be announcing it now if the release was THAT far off, the hype would die before they had shipped it.
It looks too good to be true.I`m serious, it IS too good to be true.
Krabkat: like i just said, there`s no release and the stuff shown in this promotional video are just concepts, nothing real. There hasn`t even been any real games announced for it yet, so hold your horses before you decide that you NEED one :)
Oh and yes, like i said earlier, it`s a peripheral for the 360. I think that should answer all of your questions :P
That trailer is pre-rendered crap that`s not going to happen for a long while (first trailer for CoD2, anyone?)If you saw the tech demo at E3, they were throwing paint around and failing with spazzing out avatars.
But with enough development, I`m sure it`s something that will make me aspire to get a 360 :P
Come on people, E3 was like a month ago. This isn`t news anymore :P
No, the PS2 had the eye toy which most certainly could not scan 3d data and use it in a game in realtime like the Natal. So to sum it up; do your research before talking ;)
also, it would be used in like, 3 months for super-hardcore porn.
The only thing I can think of that this would be useful for is for training people to do stuff.
I like stuff you cant do in the real world as well!If you want to plau "virtual" sports and can jump around to this..why not just do the real thing?
I still think that little kid you can talk to and interact with is better.
Personally I wouldnt buy this. Not because of fanboy reasons but sheer lack of space. Your gonna need a lot of room get the benefit of that.
Good concept but not practical for some people!
I foresee many broken household items and even more kids getting distanced from reality. I love technology, but it tears us apart as much as it "brings us together"
I actually can`t wait for the next round of consoles. They`re all gonna use technology like that, but better.
That being said, movie studios can produce 1-to-1 motion capture with those suits and state of the art equipment. A commercial version should have flaws and loose clothing could hamper the detection.
I won`t buy it though, not a huge fan of the 360. I`ve got my Wii and I will play with it until it becomes chaffed and broken.
I mean, haven`t we ALL been waiting since our first video game for this...
Full body motion capture may sound nice, But somehow I don`t think it`d be as fun as the real thing. If you can even do the real thing, Honestly I couldn`t do a back round house kick decently for the life of me.
and on a side note, that kid had a skateboard, why does he need a skating game?
For instance the PS3 has Fat Princess, The Last Guardian, Massive Action Game, God of War 3 etc. all in the pipeline. The 360 doesn`t have many upcoming exclusives, especially with the size limits of DVD.
Alternately they could just make xbox live free. I`d probably buy one if they did that.
The Dashboard part looks awesome, especially flying through the movies and being able to control your avatar. The Soccer part looks like it could work and be very fun. The Skateboard thing is already set to be on the market or something so I hear...
I don`t understand how you;re supposed to just put a peice of clothing on a picture of you and it fits perfectly...
Yeah, all I can think about when seeing this is the massive amounts of flaws. But it will be pretty cool if it works.
That sentence made me a little sick with embarassment/hatred/laughter,
"wont this be really annoying, like the Wii became? "
Of course not, microsoft are making it so it`ll be 100% reliable and perfect and the bestest thing ever.
and you look pretty stupid doing half those things (like holding an invisible steering wheel, weeeeeee).
the sony motion controller kicks this in the ass (the new one)
