Battle of the game consoles

When the Nintendo Wii came out it revolutionalised the gaming world. It showed us computer interaction like we had never seen before. Nintendo sales went through the roof as other consoles simply were not the same. That is until now.

Presenting a new entry into the battle of the game consoles… the Xbox Project Natal – a body, face, voice recognition add-on for the Xbox 360. And it looks INCREDIBLE – no joysticks, game pads or controllers, just your body, your voice and the TV. And not only that but it is not just for computer games. It is also a DVD player and video telephone system. This is not just the future of gaming but the future of human interaction with technology.

Think telling your DVD to pause rather than getting up to press a button and think using your TV to make a quick call to your friends without having to hold a telephone to your ear. Project Natal is so revolutionary, it has even got Steven Spielberg on the edge of his seat in anticipation. And well, let’s face it, if the technology is good enough for Spielberg it must be good enough for us mere mortals.

Project Natal was announced at this year’s Microsoft E3 conference and is being developed at the moment. There is no release date yet but watch this space.
