Turn 10 to Use Natal?

1 min read


A job listing over at Turn 10, the folks behind the critically and commercially successful  Forza series might be including Natal support for their next game. The job listing for a “Senior Business Development Manager” is looking for somebody “to set strategy and drive high quality game content for our Next Generation games including the NATAL platform.”

With Turn 10 being a Microsoft-owned studio, it’s hardly surprising that they’d be punting Natal. I can only assume that Turn 10 are sensible enough to know that racing fans want to play their sims with something tactile, and that full motion control in Forza – or perhaps the next PGR – is a damned stupid idea. The only ostensible use I can see for Natal in a racing game would be head-tracking – a feature that Polyphony Digital’s Gran Turismo 5 is already confirmed to have.

Of course with all the delays, it’s entirely possible that Forza Motorsport 4 will see a retail release before GT5.

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.
