Project Natal Expectations

As Im sure your aware, Project Natal was annouced at E3 Last year (2009) Info here --> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Natal.

So, what I want you folks do, is to vote on the poll, and then post a message containing your hopes for Project Natal, What you want, What you dont want, What you think they'll implement and how much it will cost.

Thanks!

I think theyll implement a motion sequence feature, so that if you make a specific gesture, it will perform a set action. As for the price, the Wireless adapter is £40+ (last time i checked), so I think it will cost around £70-80

First off, nice to have a awesome poll on the forum. First one, congrats Wink

I have to say I am looking forward to it, but will ALWAYS want to stick to controller long-term. I'm a classic gamer. I have the same opinion with 3-D viewing too.

I must admit, that i was extremely excited when it was first announced. Now, however, i'm very skeptical about the whole thing. First off, my xbox and TV are in my bedroom, which isn't a particularly big room, so i'd have to move my xbox into the living room so that i had enough space for the camera to see my full body and so that i could move around completely freely. Also, news has come in recently that Natal will use up 33% (1/3) of the the xbox's processing power, so high end games will have to have either severely dumbed down graphics, dodgy AI or other such things. This is a shame, but it is not completely confirmed that this is true. So while i'm still slighty interested, i will have to wait for some reviews and prices before i make my decision.

I hope this is not true, and is just a rumor, or else the whole games library would have to be re-made, which means us paying even more!

It wouldn't make a difference, as far as i'm aware, as old games won't be compatable with its features anyway. But don't quote me on that.

I dont hold this project in high regard. Nintendo already beat them to the punch and nailed it early. I think someone would look a lot stranger playing games with just their bodies without a "controller" of sorts in their hand. If you were to see someone playing an FPS with natal through a window, it would look like their having muscle spasms.

That, my friend, is where curtains come in Razz

But yeah, i agree. It's going to be a bit hit and miss in my opinion. If somebody walks past you in the background then it'll screw it up.. But who knows, Microsoft could pull it out of the bag.

When it first came out I remeber people thinking, this is going to be so expensive as it did look amazing at E3. But when the pricetag was released I somewhat felt, this is a bit too cheap for something thats going to change gaming. But will it change gaming? I think not, being a gamer I prefer controller gaming. My idea of gaming is sat in a chair with a controller in hand. Not waving your hands about aimlessly.

Will it work? I don't think so

I agree. I don't mind it if they stick to fun gimicky arcadey style games with it, but if they start implementing it in shooters and RPG's, then i'll be annoyed.

Another problem with Natal is that it will be very limited in what it'll be able to do, anyway. I can't see any way of playing an FPS with Natal, as there's no way it could scan your exact hand movements to recognise pulling a non existant trigger in thin air.

I just think that it's going a bit too far, and Microsoft spokemen are saying that it could give the Xbox 360 another 3 - 5 years of life which i think is complete crap. They can't rely on Natal to give more years to the 360. The original buyers bought it for it's controller, not so they could wave their arms about like complete idiots. If Microsoft attempted to phase out the controller, then there would be a lot of angry gamers (myself included).
