What do you think of Natal?


You may have seen several stories around on how some developers feel about “Project Natal” that has them on both sides on the Natal bandwagon. There’s those that are for Natal and those that are somewhat against Natal  I for one am excited to get in front of Natal and play a awesome FPS like Modern Warfare 2 , Halo 3, Rainbow six 2 or even something like Fable 2, Mass effect 2.

Imagine playing those games with Natal or at least given the option to play those games wouldn’t you jump at the chance? Now I’m not say in no way to give up on the classic controllers  but it would be nice to have the option just like the Wii.  Every Wii game out there gives you the option to play the game with at least two controller options. Now if every 360 game after Natal’s launch would give that option it would open up every type of game to the casual gamer which as we all know are Microsoft’s target after seeing what Nintendo did.

With that in mind I recently went to my local theater and saw a trailer of an upcoming film called “Gamer” and thought wow that Natal right there! That’s what a shooter would be on Natal, well not exactly but the same general idea I was talking about before check out the videos below to get a better understanding on what I’m getting at

As you can see in the vids there’s a huge similarly between what Natal will do and what the film “Gamer” is about which is why I brought up games like Modern Warfare 2, Halo 3, Rainbow six 2.  Now I know there are those “hardcore” gamers that think games like the ones I mentioned will suck with Natal and it will never take the place of a controller but remember as I stated before an option would be nice for both type of gamers the casual and hardcore. Whatever happens I guess it’s just a wait and see thing right now but I bet Natal will change gaming forever in a huge way whether you like it or not. Now that I’ve gave my opinion what do you think of Natal? Agree with me? Disagree with me?   Let me hear what you think.
