Here's my question - who here actually WANTS to control their games by jumping around like an idiot? Yes I do have a Wii, and its great for kids (who are often found jumping around like idiots) and the occasional sports game but as far as FPS and anything thats actually fun GET REAL this type of controller probably wouldn't even work for that with technology from 5 years in the future
So Natal is for the rich people that can afford a large play room. Because every other room (dinning room, living room, kitchen and bedrooms) in my home is occupied with furniture, and I suppose the homes of most people have couches, beds, tables and chairs that take up space.
So, Natal will miss a very large demographic (people living in small to medium apartments).
My room is 8.5 feet deep, and 25 feet wide. So it wouldn't work where I am now. (was 2 rooms, knocked down a wall on older house)
But if Natal is awesome, I will just move the Xbox to my living room which is 15 x 15 feet. Then again I have a couch, recliner, table, and a pullup bar in there. So basically I would need to move some stuff our or re-arrange, but I would be willing to. Video games pretty much trump all of my other needs lol.
I definitely would have room in my college apartment (even though our living room is relatively big) and I wouldnt have room at my parents house either since our living room is longer than it is wide and we have the tv on the long side.
That'll probably affect sales quite a bit, especially for people who have less than a 60" screen to play on. Funny how all the promotional videos at E3 had people playing within normal viewing distance.
