    Xbox 360 Natal

    http://www.xbox.com/en-US/live/projectnatal/

    Word's cannot describe how excited I am for this haha. Even if it comes out and sucks (which I doubt it will) I will still buy one haha.

    Basically what kind's of games do you guys think should come out for this? and what key features do you want in those games.

    I myself am excited for a CoD like game in it.. The movie Gamer makes it even more exciting to visualize it =) its gonna be great.

    The voice/visual recognition seems pretty tight too haha can't wait to get my hands on one and try it out.

    And if you guys think it's going to suck please state why don't just say it's going to suck.

    Since when did the controller go out of style?

    The only people this will appeal to is the same crowd the Wii appeals to, casual gamers that want cute little games, not something like a Final Fantasy or Bioshock. Not only is it taking a page from Nintendo, they've basically made an updated EyeToy, and I think most people remember how quickly that fizzled.

    People are buying the 360 (and PS3) because they want the hardcore games on those systems that aren't on the Wii, not because they want to jump around in the room to paint an elephant. People want to relax and play a game. Not to mention that Bungie announced that Halo will not be supporting Natal, as was rumored. That's a huge blow to Natal, now it has no big games on it; just a bunch of mini games like the EyeToy.

    Just everyone trying to "Catch Up" to the Wii. Seriously, there's no catching up, most of us like Controllers.

    thats not really the reason hardcore gamers don't use the wii, its because it doesn't have the capabilities to play a game like the xbox and ps3 does. you give the wii better graphics and the same games as xbox/ps3 and it would blow them out of the water, who wants to use an *inaccurate* controller when you can shoot some alien yourself?

    the wii system isn't perfect, but if microsoft does a good job natal will be the new way to play games

    also, considering neither have a release date its possible bungie doesn't want to delay the game to wait for natal or invest even more time in it as the amount of resources going into reach is astonishing

    It looks good, but from the announcement trailer, it looks as though it is going to appeal to the same audience the Wii appeals too.

    Most the of the games that were featured all looked like 'childish' games. And when you think about it, how can you incorporate a hardcore game into a system like this?
    For example, the racing game that was featured. I'm sorry, but I wouldn't be able to hold my hands out and hold an invisible steering wheel. I'd rather get my Forza 3 out, plug in the Logitech Force Feedback steering wheel, and get the full experience.

    Things like these just don't work with hardcore games. Believe, I have tried so hard to find an enjoyable hardcore game for my Wii, but it will never happen. And considering its softmodded and I download any game I want, I'm struggling to find a good one.
    Playing Call of Duty on the Wii was crap. It wouldn't be any better with something like Natal. The only games that work well with such hardware are casual games which, as someone said, involve jumping around a room painting an elephant. Sure, you can have things like Resident Evil on the Wii, but that's an on-rails shooter, changing things completely.

    The big problem I see with natal that the system has to be perfectly flawless if they are not having any control.
    I mean let's just say that you want to watch a movie, like in the end of the trailer, and you have to say "Play!" about 10 times before it recognize your voice.

    Let's take an other example that was nearly a dissaster.
    If you remember Red Steel one of the games that was originally released with the Wii. Everything looked so smooth on the video and the game was going to be trouly epic acording to some of the developers.
    I played the game, the motion control was soooo mutch out of hand, and everything just became plain bad.

    And if the Natal ships this year I think we have to wait some years to have a game that really takes benefits from it. Don't take me wrong here, if the Natal is as accurate as the video tells. It's going to be legen..... wait for it..... dary!

    I think this thing looks cool, but.. nothing will ever beat the classic controller gaming. Wii is a fail for gaming btw. I bought one for Metroid and Zelda. I don't know what I'd do if I missed a good Metroid game
