Natal Isn’t Just About Gaming

1 min read


Natal, says Microsoft, is about more than just gaming. Marc Whitten, Xbox 360’s general manager has said that Natal has been created to enhance the living room experience just as much as it was for gaming.

He said the device will replace the host of buttons and remotes – and at some point may even react to users reactions when watching things like televised sports. Natal will learn things, get smarter, and eventually become a sentient being and take over the universe.

"If you counted the number of buttons in your living room, it would send a chill down your spine," he said. "A lot of people can play games amazingly well, but others feel locked out if games involve a bunch of triggers and buttons."

"But Natal isn’t just about gaming," he added. "It’s about all living room experiences. Imagine a sporting event. Natal could know which team you’re for because it sees your jersey, or knows you thought a bad call was made when you yell ‘boo.’ "It learns about you and gets smarter to create a more tailored entertainment experience."

    I’m reading Sci-Fi/hype nonsense disguised as fact. They’re trying too hard to sell this thing, and with each press release they’re sounding more like Molyneux and his “old man crazy talk”.
