Introducing Project Natal, a revolutionary new way to play: no controller required. See a ball? Kick it, hit it, trap it or catch it.If you know how to move your hands, shake your hips or speak you and your friends can jump into the fun -- the only experience needed is life experience.

I think it looks great. But this is old news, isn't it?

Yes it is. People have known about this for a few months now. But I guess we might as well have a topic for discussion about it. :P

I think it looks pretty cool but I'm not big fan of motion controlled games. Maybe that's simply due to the whole Wii catalog of games. There's good potential in it though, that's for sure. As for a price, no idea. Hopefully nothing more than $150-200 lol.

Something's missing. There's something about the concept I'm just not comprehending. I have nothing against motion in games. But, I want to hold something.

At the moment, until I see more or get to experience, my mindset matches that recently PS3 Move advertisement. I can hold something like its a gun or I can make a childish gun gesture with my hand. I'm going with the first one.

And Milo creeps the hell out of me.

I also, like above, feel like I need something material to use or hold to make it feel right. I'll probably get this, but I can't see myself using it much. I'd much rather just use a controller.

We've known about it for a little bit longer than 'a few months'. It was announced at E3 last year.

Seconding what a few other people are saying. While I'd really love to try Natal out one day, it just seems like it'd be far too weird without something to hold in my hands. :/

Even as a kid I was never into "playing pretend" as if I were a bus driver or something and gripping an imaginary steering wheel. Why would I want to do that at age 20? I'm not one to care about what people see me doing but I'd still feel pretty ridiculous playing games that way, I think.

Either way, we've known about it for a while lol.
