More or less about new technology, science and innovations. With digressions

The moment I will buy a console

with one comment

natalDespite all my love to gadgets, new technology and so on, I’m not a maniacal gamer. OK, “Wiedzmin” (“The Witcher”) is awesome and I can’t deny that I’ve spent some hours with “Star Craft”, “Half-Life” among others. But I have managed to live without super Alienware machine made purely for playing nor PS, Xbox, Wii or even a simple DSLite or PSP.

Till now. Or more precisely till 2010 when  the new XBox 360 is said to hit the market (well, at least Steve Ballmer let fly abut it recently) It wont be just new XBox – with better chip or bigger storage. It is nearly sure that this version of popular console will be equiped with totally new accessory created by the Project Natal engineers.

The new device made for Xbox 360 will allow the player enter into the game – with no controllers, gamepads or even cordless remotes with accelerometers (like the one used with Nintendo Wii). THe black box showed recently during the E3 Show will consist of cameras and microphones, which will see and hear the player and her/his movements and changing into movements of the virtual hero. As Microsoft promises, Project Natal will start new era in gaming – no barriers, no wires – just You in the game. Well, IMHO, it has quite good chances As long as it will work like this:

If it will really work as it is claimed to work (and it will cost a bit less than 10 PS3’s) I think I will finally break and buy Xbox 360. I will have to;-)

And here’s some video form the E3 presentation:
