Default MS Kinect?

What do you think of Project Natal's new name? I won't say anything until after tomorrow night after attending the event...

Neither is great, it doesn't much matter in my opinion. I guess it is supposed to combine kinetic and connect... PR and marketing people love to do that kind of crap.

As for the unit itself, the games announced tonight sound like the Wii copies we all knew they would be. Will it sell? Who knows... I can see a 32X level flop and also a massive success, with people the way they are no one knows.

Kinect is now official name. It's rather a weird choice of name just like Natal but I'm sure it'll start to grow on me in overtime.

I'm more interested how much it'll cost. Hopefully under $100. A Star Wars game for Kinect from Microsoft/Lucasart sounds very interesting and hopefully it's going to be fun.

Saw it a while ago and seems he's not playing the game but copying the movement from the character in game. Meh. I'd wait till E3 to see someone actually play it. It does look promising.

Yeah, racing games without any controller... that seems awesome. HTF is she controlling the gas and brakes? Oh wait, probably isn't because this thing is made for brainless retards.
