Everything you need to know about games

Project Natal

Ok, this isn’t really new, but I thought id write about it anyway. This is probably the sweetest thing ive ever seen if it actually works the way its shown (video below). Its supposedly supposed to have voice recognition, full body control, and its pretty cheap. Ive heard rumors that the price on the camera is going to be $80, sounds pretty reasonable for what you can do with it.

I saw the commercial with an actual gun game and the way its shown, all I can say is, I can’t wait! Chances are that this thing isn’t going to do what it shows. Gamers everywhere were dissapointed and angry that the Wii controllers would not recognize movements and it became really frustrating. This is said to be breakthrough technology with everything u need.

It is probably limited on certain games that you can play on Natal, but ill let you decide for yourself, check this out:

Heres something I ran into the other day, Sony is launching a new handheld device which is known as the PSP Go, basically it is an upgrade from the older version of the PSP, here are all of the features:

1. 16gb on board flash memory
2. 3.8 inch screen
3. 43% lighter than the PSP 3000
4. Blue Tooth Support
5. All Digital Content No UMD
6. You can add extra memory via memory card slot

8. Releases This Fall 2009

Now this might sound great, but there’s only one problem, the price of this thing is crazy! it costs $80 more than the normal PSP! Now you might be rethinking about buying this expensive device, due to consumers negative reaction to the price, there may be a possibility of a price cut on the PSP Go. Keep checking the site for the latest info.

The new Wii MotionPlus

A new product is going to be introduced in stores, its not all that great, but it will be flying off the shelves due to its features. The new Wii Motionplus is designed to take complete precision on the Wii’s. Gamers have been disappointed by the old remotes lack of accuracy was always a downside. Not anymore! The Wii MotionPlus is going to start selling on June 8th, the difference between these remotes and the old ones are that the new ones use gyroscopic sensors to mimic hand movements exactly

“The great thing about this particular new technology — which isn’t always true for other new technologies — is that we immediately saw the benefits of it,” said Jason Shenkman, senior producer of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10.

“Before I even touched it or got my hands on it, I knew exactly what having a gyroscope in our possession would do.”

It is still unclear why the original remotes weren’t released with this new technology.

“We are always looking at ways to enhance the gaming experience for consumers,” said Denise Kaigler, Nintendo vice president of corporate affairs. “This was another way of enhancing the gaming experience, and consumers will hopefully choose to experience that more immersive type of game play and enjoy it.”

“One of the cool things is that with Wii MotionPlus, we know how hard you have swung the remote,” Vandenberghe said. “That means we can ask the player to have a more physical experience, like having enemies who are wearing armor that players will have to hit harder with their sword.”

Only 5 games so far have been able to use this new technology and those games are: Tiger Woods, Wii Sports Resort from Nintendo, Grand Slam Tennis from Electronic Arts; Virtua Tennis 2009 from Sega, and Red Steel 2 from Ubisoft.
