I can't beleive I am saying this: I am so impressed by XBOX's Project Natal, I don't know what to say. It is, as the video indicates, a Wii without the Wii. The controller bar below the TV detects your face, recognizes you, follows separate voices, and does a full body motion capture in real time to permit you to play games with all 4 appendages and no controller. Can I have one? Now!?
The Mr. doom and gloom corner: How will MS screw this up? Will it cost too much? Will they fail to produce adequate mini games - the thing Wii did so well? What will it be? Still, I saw the Zune HD video today as well and it is, well, slick. Maybe there is hope for MS after all in the consumer products space.
