It’s all in how things are controlled. that’s how Peter Molyneux,Â over-hyping grand champion, sees the world. It wasn’t the microprocessor that revolutionised the Pc, according to Molyneux – no, it was the mouse.
â€œIF 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.â€
â€œThe 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 keyboardâ€¦ That one little Â£9.95 device changed everything about computing. And things like Natal can be a bigger change,â€ said Molyneux.
He concluded saying that Natal’s early days would be punctuated by â€œobvious stuff,â€ but that the real revolutionary stuff would likely follow. Soâ€¦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 â€œwait-and-seeâ€ approach.
