Project Natal caught on camera, debuts in ten days time

3 June 2010

Engadget has new images of what may be this year's must-have prezzie - Microsoft's Project Natal.  Although the device hasn't been officially christened with its market name yet, that'll likely happen at the world premiere of Project Natal for Xbox 360 Experience, happening in the US in ten days time:

Bitterwallet - Project Natal

If you've just climbed your way out of a Guatemalan sinkhole, Project Natal is a piece of kit you can plug into your Xbox360 that means the end of buttons, wands and controllers – the player’s body can interact directly with the gaming experience. Expect to see it in shops before Christmas.

    Whoever wears sunglasses indoors is a total nob in my eyes.

    What happens if you are missing limbs!!! not very inclusive! I however can not wait!

    It's called "Xbox Wave". Amazing bit of kit, and so is Sony's new touchscreen Android-based PSP. Nintendo better have something up their sleeves cos they're gonna be in real trouble when this kit comes out.

    Looks more like the bloke off The IT Crowd/Garth Merengi's Dark Place.

    It would be nice if they actualy showed a game being played, rather than these useless 'family fun' things that are OK for five minutes, and then you realise you have more intelligence than a fish. Oh, and I agree about the glasses indoor. It comes across as 'Please look at me. Please. I'm making a statement.'

    This has absolutely nothing to do with Steve Jobs. D-

    "What happens if you are missing limbs!!! not very inclusive! I however can not wait!" Who gives a crap. If you're missing an arm, how the hell are you going to play on the 360, or any console, anyway? And if you're missing a leg, I'm sure you won't be too bothered. Just use a regular controller. There, included. Stop being a fucking PC muppet, you cock smoking pile of minge cheese. Life is crap, sometimes you can't do everything you want to do. I'll never be a pro basketball player as I'm only 5' 9", but I'm not going to go and fucking demand that they lower the hoops by a foot and force them to put a height restriction on players.

    Oh wait, Bitterwallet isn't very inclusive as its in English, and excludes anybody who doesn't speak our language. Best be closing it down then, I guess. Fucking spacktard.

    Surely you can get fake limbs that will work. This all looks very impressive, and probably a good step forward to one of those virtual reality suites that all geeks wank about, but I imagine it will only be about 5 mins worth of entertainment. The games are likely to be piss poor.

    And while I'm busy taking the piss out of crazy statements: "surely the processing needs of natal is going to really cripple the xbox" Yeah, I'm sure that: a) you have any idea of the processing requirements of Natal, considering nobody in the public has ever seen it, or ever seen a real recording of it in actual operation. b) that the 360 can't handle a tiny positioning overhead, considering its processor can do over 115 billion floating point operations per second. It's amazing how the PS3 fanbois always find the craziest ways to slag this off straight away, despite not having the foggiest what they are on about.

    play a blu-ray on you x-box then. oh wait. you can't. /argument

    http://www.codemicro.com/store/product/BP/BDPS300/New £100... XBox = £100 PS3 = £220 If you want to play that game.

    Complete gimmic, Playstation Move at least looks like it might have a bit of longevity. The 360 as a console is on the way out.
  • IfYouCopyMyNameYouAreGayIsGay
    @Klingelton Don't really need to - seeing as my 802.11n adapter that the PS3 will never be able to have, allows me to stream 1080p content. /purchases standalone blu-ray player and plays blu rays at proper quality instead of shitty nerfed PS3 quality with shitty clumsy interface, and still has change from his elite + player. /argument I do agree with one small point made by one of you pathetic fanbois though, that it is a complete gimick. Just like Playstation Move. And the Wii. Comments however such as 'the 360 is on the way out' is just complete fanboi bullshit. The 360 is still outselling the PS3, in both console sales and games sales.

    Consoles are for wankers anyway
  • James D.
    Agreed, you console cocksuckers need to shut your whining cock holsters so the rest of us can have a mature conversation. Cockos.
  • Galaxy
    Consoles are for people who are shit with technology. END. Whatever next.
  • foxfooker
    its all in the name - console yourself as you cant afford a decent PC
  • badgerbummer
    This is going to make wanking while gaming too hard. It's set to fail.

    Who the fuck says one handed gamers can't play? One of the most epic sf2 players I ever saw only had one hand, and he used his stump on the other. Also, you fucking fanboys are tits (the 360 as well as the PS3 ones in this thread). Absolute tits.
