Project Natal Hits da Xbox 360 for the 2010 Holidays (and other 360 related shiz)


WTF, Microsoft wants us to not only use our thumbs and hands, now they think we want to use our whole body to game, next phase of oper­a­tions is an inte­grat­ed chip in our brains where we can dom­i­nate noobs through brain sig­nals recharged though car­nal nerves mov­ing through the device.  By the way, I’m not sure about that last one.  But Microsoft’s years of research as expressed in the upcom­ing Project Natal (na’tal , Por­tuguese mean­ing: of or relat­ing to birth) allow a 3D cam­era to cap­ture body move­ments and trans­late them to move­ments or actions on the screen.  And accord­ing to the pres­i­dent of Microsoft’s Enter­tain­ment and Devices Divi­sion Rob­bie Batch, this new device will work with exist­ing 360 con­soles.  Users will be able to have a tru­ly con­troller free gam­ing expe­ri­ence.  (But I like my con­troller)  There will be a nat­ur­al user inter­face using body move­ments, spo­ken com­mands or pre­sent­ed objects and images.  Over 1000 soft­ware devel­op­er kits were shipped out the same day of its ini­tial announce­ment on June 1st of 2009.
Com­ing soon­er than this unveil­ing in the spring will be the Game Room, an online arcade geared towards games from the 70’s and 80’s, form devel­op­ers like Atari and Activi­sion.  And, to get Halo fans excit­ed Halo Reach, a pre­quel to the 1st Halo, will be released in 2010.  So, looks like Microsoft has still got some tricks up their sleeves and like in the past will no doubt blow us away with some­thing this com­ing year.  Sounds fun!!

    not to men­tion the per­son­al brain doc­tor that comes with the sys­tem, you’ll see him, he’s just a boy, but can sense how your “feel­ing” by how you talk with him.
    I have to admit, I think this is the future, I get tired of my ass get­ting bigger,while my hands cramp up play­ing with a con­troller. I want to play real cool RPG games and FPS games by just run­ning around the liv­ing room and shoot­ing shizz. Make it 3d-4d and you got my mon­ey.. why leave the house? LEts get Game fit togeth­er… inter­ac­tive naughty games.… mmmm
