Project Natal: Look Ma! No Wii!

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.

watch the live demo and you'll see they have a long way to go to reach their "Product Vision"

I think Milo looks fraught with horrific possibilities.
