This is why the E3 Project Natal briefing is technology free

1 min read


So you may remember a while back it was reported that Microsoft is banning all technology from it’s big E3 Project Natal event?

Obviously the first thought we all had was that they wanted to avoid any videos going up showing the lag or technical failing of Project Natal and we all got a little worried about the hardware at that point.

However while that may still be true this is a far more logical reason for the technology ban at the event.

Microsoft has recently announced that all us lucky attendees will be treated to a live performance from the world renowned Cirque Du Soleil.

I have been dying to watch this show for years and have unfortunately never been able to afford the ticket prices so to say I am stoked about this turn of events would be an understatement.

My guess is that Microsoft hasn’t purchased the broadcast rights for Cirque Du Soleil so by telling us that technology is banned they are living up to their side of the bargain… and we can’t afford to be sued by these guys so we are going to honour their specific request.

What Cirque Du Soleil has to do with Project Natal is anyone’s guess but we will answer that question for you on Monday the 13th of June… when we get back from the show.

    I rate they’ll have Natal track the cast and have Avatars recreate the whole show in real time on projectors.

      That would probably result in their xbox RRODing. Everyone in attendance will have a flashback to the day Windows 98 launched and BSODed.

      But the look on Bill Gate’s face was hilarious.

    Ok wtf… I tried to think of so many reasons why it would be tech free and this is just so ridiculous! But it does make sense I guess.

    :ermm: This does not bode well for Natal. If they have to bring in the circus (albeit one of the best performing circuses around), you know Natal must be one oddly-shaped smelly melon.

    Just be glad they’re not throwing Barry Manilow or the Black Eyed Peas at you, because then you’ll know for sure that Natal is basically a street cat’s hairball…
