    No way Natal works the way they say it does- but IF it does, hell- if it works half as well as the videos make it seem, every other console can pack it's bags.
    But... I doubt it does. Though I'm amazed by the videos and all.

    Metal Gear
    Facebook/Twitter
    Last.fm - free internet radio.
    Streaming 1080p movies with 5.1 sound

    So far some pretty interesting things. Here's Natal...

    Either way, It gets you excited for the future of games. This isn't some gay wagging wrist motion- it's actual movement. And yes, you'll look like a retard doing it, but if it actually works...may be worth it.

    Even if it has some problems, it's just the beginning of the technology and will get better over time. I think MS wanted to get this out now to find any flaws and to improve it by the time the next xbox comes out.

    I wonder if they will do full games with it or just mini games? would be a lot of exercise to finish a game like GTA only using your body.

    It reminds me of the technology of a few years back where you wore a helmet and actually felt like you were moving in the video environment. The gloves moves your hands, etc.

    Anything ever come of that beyond flight simulators for training?

    I won't be satisfied until I can get that room that the X-men had for training installed in my house.

    I thought the PS3's motion controller was more impressive personally. It's interesting that both companies have a Wii-rip at the same show though.

    It's cool, but a little overboard if you ask me.

    When I'm playing my Xbox (which has become a rarity), I play CoD, Guitar Hero, and Madden.

    I would have no use for this.
