@SuperSonic1990: Yes, and it's quite the lamentable situation. I'm playing FFIV on DS right now (or I was before I got COMPLETELY distracted by inFamous), and I've beaten it on PS1 before so I could play After Years any time I like by my standards.
@Adam: Yeah, that's cool, I guess. If you don't mind doing that sort of thing, go right ahead! I just put the warning out there in case you actually didn't know the potential ramifications somehow or something.

Pretty neat piece of technology, although it requires some refinement. I just love the meltdowns on other forums.

Didn't like that 'waggle' reference they put in the b@st@rdo's.
Meh, I'm intrigued as to how popular that's gonna be with 'the hardcore'. I'm hoping what looks impressive now, will suck by the time we've seen the big N's plans.
Right frak you microsoft, I'm off to play Little King until about Ninty oclock 2moro. See you all then.

"Didn't like that 'waggle' reference they put in the b@st@rdo's."
I agree. It has some truth in it, but c'mon Microsoft, you wouldn't be announcing this "no controller" technology if it wasn't for the Wii.
Very good press conference. I wonder if Sony's already canceling their motion controller speech of tomorrow (apparently theirs was gonna be worst)

It was an absolutely horrible conference except for Natal, and even then that was just a cue card for high skepticism. Not only that, but the thing doesn't have a proper name yet, most developers haven't seen this new technology... I would be pleasantly surprised if it's ready for Holiday 2010 even. The mini-games (especially paint) looked boring, though I understand they're just demos.
I really don't see this working as well as they claim since the only demonstrators were already familiar. A random person from the audience would have been much much more convincing. I'm definitely intrigued though and will be watching for this.
Still, I want to see that interactive character applied to a game before I'm sold. As amazing as it is as a technology, I don't need a virtual friend, and I don't think most people do (or should). It'll probably just be a pricey novelty if that's their best software behind it.
Now the real question: Can Nintendo top this?

Well, I think to summarize the press conference would be best to do this:
Milo is creepy. Maybe good for women focused on a career with no time to raise a kid on their own?Celebrity appearances failed to impress (mostly because they don't seem to care for video games, and Tony Hawk said "this thing is full of technology". Okay.) and the guy presenting the second half of the show was booooring. Boring. Well, at least no charts and numbers.That is all.

According to Seattle Times, Natal is priced at 199 dollars.
73. Posted: Mon 1st Jun 2009 21:03 BST
According to me, Seattle Times is making up stuff:"Prices and timing weren't available, but it won't be available until 2010 at the earliest and will probably cost around $200."Emphasis added.

Doh, my mistake. Still, it will be interesting how they will price this. Probably over 100 bucks knowing how Microsoft prices its peripheals.
75. Posted: Mon 1st Jun 2009 21:09 BST
Yea, and while Milo is an amazing piece of tech, I think most will need some better game software before they're willing to plop down over $100 for a virtual pet friend. Lots of possibilities for this if it works as well as claimed. I can't wait to hear what the media has to say about it later.

I saw Xbox Natal and im scared
@adam No way Nintendo will top this.

MICROSOFT: "Ha ha ha, isn't waggling dumb? Tee hee hee, that stupid Wii! All you do is stand around and wave your arms like an idiot! Anyway, here's our new thing, which is basically the same thing without the controller..."
@Zane: yeah, those games they demonstrated with NATAL sure looked fun, didn't they?

@ChickenYea, I can't wait to play their upcoming hit Natal games:

If I cared for shooters, I would have been pretty happy with their conference. Hell from 14 announced games, 9 were shooters of some kind. But I must confess I'm pretty excited for Forza 3.
80. Posted: Mon 1st Jun 2009 21:37 BST
I don't really get what's supposedly special about Forza. It looks like any other realistic racer. Aside from Facebook/Twitter/etc, that was the most boring part for me. Alan Wake looks maybe interesting. The best looking games to me were Modern Warfare 2, Splinter Cell (never played the original, but the story-on-the-wall thing is neat and I like sneaking in MGS), and that XBLA side-scrolling game. Already forgot the name.
MGS Rising is of course exciting, but I expect it'll be on PS3, too. Hopefully we'll get more details tomorrow or Wednesday at Konami's event.
The teaser for the new Halo thing was also silly. Look, it's a planet with people talking nonsense in the background! Oh, and it's called Halo! Must buy.
Better than last year's E3 though, for sure. If Natal ends up being all they say, next year will be pretty exciting. I think they jumped the gun by showing it now, but I guess you can't keep something like that secret for too long!
