Molyneux : Natal Could Effect Bigger Change than Mouse for PC

1 min read


It’s all in how things are controlled. that’s how Peter Molyneux,  over-hyping grand champion, sees the world. It wasn’t the microprocessor that revolutionised the Pc, according to Molyneux – no, it was the mouse.

“IF you’re thinking Natal is going to give you another version of an FPS, you’re just not thinking broadly enough. After all, it was the invention of the mouse that gave us computing as it is today – not the invention of the microprocessor. That’s how we ended up controlling our PCs.”

“The mouse was the real revolution of the PC – not the Intel processor. And who’s to say Natal [couldn’t] end up creating something you and I can’t even imagine now. It forces us to approach technology in a completely different way. Before the mouse, we only had the keyboard… That one little £9.95 device changed everything about computing. And things like Natal can be a bigger change,” said Molyneux.

He concluded saying that Natal’s early days would be punctuated by “obvious stuff,” but that the real revolutionary stuff would likely follow. So…Natal more important than the mouse, eh? With Molyneux’s predilection for hype and his track record, you’ll have to forgive me if I take the “wait-and-see” approach.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
