And yet people will still buy it.

$50? Really? At that price, it'd just be a steal. True, it's not a new console, but the amount of development and research that has gone into Natal warrants more than $50, methinks...

I'm glad you all know it's going to fail ahead of time. What if it's totally awesome and the $150 is justifiable? None of us have actually used it so calling it overpriced is a stretch.

People on forums are sooooooooooo negative. Be happy people!

the wireless adapter.....just bridge LAN and WLAN on your laptop or desktop, and hook the xbox up and viola you have perfect wireless (i get awsome connections doing it, even if im torrenting)

as for natal.....i'd pay 100 probably, but i want to see what games come out for it, the Wii was awsome...sometimes... but the games just arnt there to support it.

I agree, we dont know anything till we try it, but I have to say the commercials on TV dont make it look very functional. The guy changing the tire in the race pit had his arms above his head and he had to move slow. Slowness seemed to be the norm for all the commercials I have seen.

I'll have to see it in person before judging the price of entry...

Honestly in order to get the full potential of say, the Wii motion. You need to buy a wiimote, nunchuck and motion plus... Add all those items together (then multiply by 4x) and Natal doesn't seem that expensive.

I wonder if Microsoft would let the Porn industry make Xbox games for Natal, just imagine a 3D game where you can "touch" a model and it will react and move. Virtual Lap Dancing; there has to be a market for it.

Instead of dabbling in project natal, they should look into project RROD, stupid Microsoft.

I'm not really sure I understand Project Natal so sorry in advance if my thinking is flawed.

The problem I'm seeing is that this "add on" is for an xbox that is going to be replaced in all but two years?

Seems like a waste of money to me. Anyone remember the Sega 32x from back in the days? Don't get me wrong it certainly has a lot of potential, but if it becomes obsolete in 2011-2012 timeframe, it's simply not worth buying.

Well Hardcore FPS gamers should not be playing on a console to begin with.

I cant wait to get my hands on one. $149 is more than reasonable for what your getting especially since the xbox 360 has 5+ years left in its lifespan.


NOT.
