Microsoft announces "Project Natal" - Controller-free gaming

Microsoft just announced Xbox Project Natal (that's nah-tahl), controller free gaming. This is their attempt to not only lower the learning curve of picking up a controller, but eliminate it altogether. Think, "Minority Report."

The Natal box has full body motion capture and voice recognition. Pretty cool, but seems gimmicky at this point. The demo games are pretty basic (swat at planes as King Kong, throw paint on a wall) but hey, with the success of basic Wii games, who knows.

Oh, and Kudo Tsunoda, the project's creative director who came onto stage and ripped on the Wii for its "waggle" commands seems like a Jack Black wanna-be and generally gave me a "douche" vibe.

I'll upload a video as soon as it's available.

I read that the price would be around $99, and that it would be compatible with the current 360 hardware...
but maybe not backward compatible with older games




I can promise you it will be about3 times the amount of $99. The sheer technology involved with this revolutionary masterpiece is far beyond anything we have utilized as the public! Think voice recognition, facial recognition, infrared technology. oh my the world is a changing folks. For the most insane demonstration search "Lionhead Milo project natal" on youtube.com. This video explains it all in a nutshell by using a demo of its power and potential! I am a huge fan as you may have concluded! Namastay
