    Microsoft unveils Project Natal, its controller-free gaming system

    Can the "holodeck" be so far away now?
    I don't think this will be coming to dorm rooms soon, it requires a big space to move around in, they haven't announced a price yet, and it won't be available until the end of the year.
    Beats the hell out of Atari and should take care of the "couch potatoe" image as well.

    I tried to embed the video, but it didn't work :-[

    Holy mother fucking shit.

    That is amazing.
    I heard about it being featured at E3, but if it is even half of what this video is, it will revolutionize home entertainment.

    It is actually nothing like the Wii.
    Did you see the video?

    Are you a sony fanboy? Did you even see any of the footage or did you just make a quick assumption?

    sony fanboy? lmao... what are we like 12 years old?

    It's a great idea and probably very profitable.
    However, while the technology is very impressive I actually thought it looked kind of stupid as well.
    What I learned from the Wii is that half of what I like about playing video games is sitting on my ass, gaining weight...possibly drinking beer.
    Prancing around the room like a fruit loop pixie is not my idea of long term gaming fun.
    I wonder how many granules of dust my Wii collected as I typed this...hmmm

    LMAO.
    That was funny.

    There are advantages and disadvantages to both IMHO.
    I love playing MarioCart and Nascar Kart on the Wii.
    I like playing madden on the PS3 more.
    Star Wars force and Star Wars Legos = Much better on the Wii.
    First person shooters = much better on a traditional console.

    Most of the Wii games are still sit down games that take advantage of the Wiimote's area sensing capability.
    I see the Natal as the next logical step in this design.
    If they can incorporate a traditional controller that you can use as well for game slike FPS and Madden, then it will be perfect.
