    New Microsoft Project Natal details leak, coming next year for cheap

    Forgot to post url :
    http://dvice.com/archives/2009/11/new-microsoft-p.php

    A while back we had posted a thread about the new Microsoft "Natal" interactive gaming system.
    It will work with some of the Xbox 360 games.
    According to this article the new Natal will come bundled with about 14 Wii type games.
    After seeing prices on Xbox, PS3, and Wii, I was suprised at the cost for this new technology.

    Microsoft's upcoming Project Natal add-on for the Xbox 360 is one of the most exciting and interesting new gaming peripherals to be announced in some time. So of course, news that it might just be cheaper than previously thought gets us excited.

    According to MCV, a UK gaming magazine, Natal should launch in about a year, in November of 2010. And it might just cost somewhere between $50 and $80, coming bundled with 14 games. Sure, those games will be Wii Sports style minigames, but man, that's a great price for something that'll allow you to interact with your games in a whole new way.
    One of the comments gives some insight concerning this:

    Hey! I'm a student at University of North Texas. We just had a representative from Microsoft's public relations department come by today with the natal unit. I didn't get to see it personally but My Farvish Friend(whose not a DVICE reader) was telling me all about it. It scanned the persons body and it took a long time to set up a user profile. it got your height and other general info(not weight surprisingly) . The guy said that bill gates had the technology for several years and had it in his home so when he went from room to room the music would change with him/mood. Anyways its real and its close.

    Looks pretty cool. But I'm not too excited about it.

    Hopefully its not used like the wii. Which has become more or less and excuse for developers to put out family friendly games that cost them very little money to make and have about as much depth as a puddle but still charging $60 for them and then putting out a quality 1st party game every once in awhile.

    Call me skeptical. I've been gaming since the 80's and it will take me awhile to be okay with not using the typical controller.

    I do have an xbox, but they had massive problems for the first while, and yes, I'd rather have a PC over a mac.
    Regardless, i don't think Microsoft has ever made a great product until Windows 7.

    In saying that, you pretty much just poo-pooped on every product they ever had.
