The Future of Gaming!


Even better:

In all seriousness, though, to actually compare this ‘Natal’ this to Wii Motion Plus, well, when I play games like Gears of War and Halo, I’m always thinking how much better they would be with Wii pointer controls, or how much better GTA4 minigames would be with Wii controls.

Could this thing even control an FPS or a precise minigame?

So I guess that right now I’m playing 360 pre-natal? Yeck.

And if anyone actually cares to see how it really looks (but what’s the fun in that?):

Moar GIFs! Full body waggle!

Okay okay, I promise that I’ll rag on Nintendo tomorrow if they unveil stupid things also. That would make me unbiased, right?

    Seems embedding those GT videos messed up your page (same thing on the homepage). It’s less broken in IE but the sidebar is still below everything else.

    But anyway, BAM! THERE IT IS.

    I can’t believe I missed the end part of the conference. Will have to watch it tomorrow I guess. I’m looking forward to Nintendo’s conference.

    Sorry, the embed code on gametrailers is super messed up, trying the code from the videos, no glitches for me, but it wasn’t super messed up to begin with on Safari, so…

    It’s fixed now it seems. XD

    And I’ve got to say, I can’t believe someone has made a GIF of the conference already. That was quick.

    So Brad, what were you most interested in?

    I love how Alan Wake looks, the light reacting to the baddies and all that. Probably is complete fail compared to the Silent Hill flashlight on Wii, though…

    See, that’s the thing, if I see something on ps3 or 360, my first thought is usually how amazing it would be with Wii controls (especially Gears of War). I don’t think I’m going to see the next Zelda, Mario, Halo, CoD, God of War, the next Team ICO game, any of those, and go, well jeez, if only I could play this with Natal…

    So I went back to GameSpot to hopefully find that BAM video, and they were streaming some Uncharted 2 footage, and I realized that most of M$’s conference was trying to either be Uncharted or some more Halo.

    Then again, I was sold at the ‘if you liked the Halo 1 pistol, you’ll love this!’ So I’ll definitely have my eye on Halo: ODST.

    Remember last year’s M$ conference? Half of it was literally, hey look what we’re getting TOO! Now they’re just playing catch up to EyeToy and Wii… lovely…

    The M$ conference absolutely NEEDS to be the first conference, otherwise they’d look stupid, showing off dual platform games…

    Lets see that reminds me of now your in the movies game but ten times more advanced.

    And about the fps with wii controll I have been wishing bungie could get halo1 on the wii for a long time now. (Halo 2 or 3 would stink because of lag)

    And I am looking forward to ODST even if it comes out in 173 days. (nearly 6 months)not that I’m counting though.

    Anyone see the Sony Conference. They unveiled a motion controller that works with the camera (SURPRISE!) and they actually demoed a FPS mode in it.

    Granted, I’d always prefer a controller or mouse anyday but it’s still impressing nonetheless.
