Several weeks ago, I was thinking about buying Nintendo Wii…Partly because I like the gameplay in Wii which are very interactive and exciting. Until I stumbled upon Xbox 360 “Project Natal.
Project Natal is the code name for a “controller-free gaming and entertainment experience” for the Xbox 360. It was first announced on June 1, 2009 at the Electronic Entertainment Expo. The add-on peripheral enables users to control and interact with the Xbox 360 without a game controller, but rather though gestures, spoken commands, and/or presented objects and images. Project Natal will be compatible with all existing Xbox 360 models. A release date has yet to be announced, but Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has stated that the technology will be incorporated into a new Xbox 360, due for release in 2010.
Looks like, I have to postpone my console project till next year..I’d say this is the Wii killer, unless Nintendo comes out with another counter attack.
