i see some ps3 fanboys sayin this ll destroy xbox 360 and blah blah blah first of all the natal is a diferent project , and microsoft is trying to make u use ur full body to play and without the need of a controller. this new ps3 controller is just a wii upgrade , that ll prob come with better games then wii but still a copy ...
This product will turn out to be the same as this presentation; unprofessional, awkward, pathetic, incomplete and stoned
Diecast, that's not the final name either lol..... Heard of project longhorn? Aka Windows Vista Natal is a city in Brazil in which the creator of the Project originates from Arc looks too much like Wiimote, it has to try hard to stand out and even look original
This is great. When it comes out I hope that most games that use pointing and FPS take advantage of this and update their controls.
This is going to BLOW "project Natal" out of proportion. What kind of retarded name is "project" Natal anyway? Wouldn't get on my nerves so much if it were just called "Natal" but with "project"? alittle too much cornyness for me and a tad bit on the halo sounding side for me.... GO SONY!!!!!! BLOW MICROMONEY OUT OF THA #2 SPOT and RECLAIM YOUR TITLE AS THE CONSOLE GODS you've ALWAYS been since PS1!!!
I agree that this is not as interesting as natal might seem but natal is going to need controlers because certan motions look to much alike to be distingushed betwen each other no mater the accuracy of the system. On Natal you could want to reload but move your finger to much and shoot an old lady in the head where as here you just hit a button, not as much fun but less dead old ladies as a result and truthfully this is much more presice, just because natal can track your hands doesnt mean it will always work right; your hand goes behind an obsticale it doesn't know whats going on, your dog runs in the room and you shoo him away and you just through away your gun down in the middle of a fight and how do you pause a natal game cause you cant hit start no you have to jump through hoops or just answer the phone with a bunch of gunshoots going off and your charenter putting a gun to his head. I own a wii the controls are not any good there are games where you have to draw and it is extreamly hard to do. Now this is not perfect but it is a major step in the right derection so I can't wait.
"ON WII if u do a little shake it will be the same as a wide and strong swing of your arm and this got full 3d control with a submilimeter presition" The same thing is achieved by Motion+ and its out already, this thing will probably take atleast a year to be launched. Its just stupid to compare present day technology with future technology.
dude, its a more precise wii remote...i love sony but this is ridiculous, the wii doesnt ONLY sell cause of its remote, but its demographic is kids, the games are fun, its fun looking etc. while the ps is just more attractable for maybe the adults y'know...maybe this is something great but ya know im just not sure
ON WII if u do a little shake it will be the same as a wide and strong swing of your arm and this got full 3d control with a submilimeter presition and the stupid one that think that natal with a plastic will b the same ... u r lame that thing got gyros for state in every direction possibled and a camera for place in space not stupid accelerometers and ir - wii or a double camera that could mess up if your cat is moving - natal i dont think that the natal will work great with multiple persons or if you hand is behind your back
How much of an idiot do you have to be to think Natal is fake? They demoed it live on Jimmy Fallon - with a game that is already out, Burnout Paradise. I shouldn't even be qualifying with that though - Microsoft has no motive to demo fake technology and pretend their bringing it to market.
OH WOW...i thought i HAD to get a 360 for Natal....but this is looking pretty aWeSOME!!! PS3 FTW!!!!
I LOVE it! I mean who of us can honestly say we haven't all wanted to jump into our games & fight ourselves. This is the future of total in game action. Really does give a new definition to 1st Person position. I play Wow & I would give anything to take on my foes with a controller like this. This will definately seperate the Pro's from the Joe's...
Looks awesome can't wait for it to come out I want it! I would buy it just for the end there and bash guys all day.
Star Wars Lightsaber Duels!!!! =D This looks absolutely brilliant! I cant wait to get my hands on it!
For those who don't think these controllers can replace normal gamepads... check this picture http://www.slashgear.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/sony_motion-sensitive_controller_patent_1-480x274.jpg It's just an early design, but if Sony does it right both motion controllers will have analog sticks, buttons and triggers. That's all you need to move in an FPS, motion control would only be used for looking around and shoot.
pooooooor nintendo lol. between this and the 360's motion sensing the poor little wii will be obsolete in minutes.
I don't like this whole motion sensing direction the industry is going.. if I wanted to "feel" like I was doing something in the real world... I would "actually" go and do it in reality... outside! Plus, this thing really doesn't look like it works very good at all.
This is the most core gamer oriented motion control of the big three. I think it's more practical than Natal.
I thought "Harcore" gamers didn't use motion controls? You all bashed the Wii saying Dual-Analog is SOOOO much better.
Pretty cool. I like that it's so precise. I need that for Little Big Planet 2. It's difficult to make a level with a regular controller. The idea of taking a spray can to decorate my levels is too neat! The speed that it tracks is phenomenal. There's no lag with actual 1:1 high-resolution control!
Really ! WOW!!! if you say so. That is for singing? Maybe a troll eat me while the ball is turning red. Yes, i can see. It is a prototype! Hey Wolfenstein 3D its BACK!!!! ....
Well, it obviously isn't an original idea, but it has A LOT OF POTENTIAL. I have a xbox360, and I think it's better than the ps3, but I also think that Microsoft will need to do a very good job to make a xbox controller better than this one.
