My favourite part of E3 '09 in GIF format
Thinking back, I wonder if the glasses were there to ensure he was definatly being recognized by the Natal software.
But yeah. It's not the glitch - that happens - but the way he was so BAM confident about the shoe thing which then totally failed, that was pretty bad.
Another favourite part of mine:
Host: "This isn't a game where you end up sitting on the sofa using some pre-set waggle controls"
People payed by MS: "WooooO YEAHH WOOOOOOOO DROWN OUT THE BOOING"
I love seeing people say the technology will suck. I'm willing to bet that over 50% of the people on these forums aspire to work in the game industry. That simple fact is actually quite scary. If any of you were to see a game for a preview, especially using new tech, you would tweet/blog/whatever saying that it will be the worst thing ever. The problem with that is, it is still being worked on. The only thing that should have you stating that the camera technology will be terrible is if they had said something like, "..IN STORES NEXT WEEK!"
@JoshS: You said it man, the Wii controls suck now, yet when it was revealed everyone was promising it'd be fucking awesome. Microsoft are promising Natal will be awesome, they showed us a bullshit video and some demos using special camera and sensor setups (according to Kotaku). We have heard it all before.
Right now Natal is nothing more than a lab experiment using specialist equipment. When Microsoft turn this into a product I can buy for $60, that will do "full body motion capture" as promised (yeah, right...), has speech recognition that works as flawlessly as in the demos and is supported by at least two half decent games, then I will be less of a skeptic.
