Microsoft’s Project Natal is coming soon, but what games will support it? We don’t know, but we can tell you about one game that will. Crave Games, the developer of Brunswick Pro Bowling for the Xbox 360, has confirmed that the upcoming version of its bowling game will support Project Natal.

The Natal version of Brunswick Pro Bowling will also offer support for the PlayStation Move. We’re looking forward to seeing Project Natal and the PlayStation Move hit shelves. We should know more soon.

Project Natal to cost $200?

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on May 17th, 2010

Swedish retailers to the rescue! Looks like some Swedish retailers have listed the Xbox 360 motion controller Project Natal for 1,499 SEK, which means $200 in US money. If this is accurate, it isn’t looking good for Natal. Most games already cost $60.

This is not the finalized price point yet since it could be a placeholder figure, but if it does turn out to be accurate, I know that I would rather spend my money on quality games that don’t use Natal.

Analyst predicts $299 slim Xbox 360/Project Natal bundle this year

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on April 14th, 2010

It doesn’t seem like much of a prediction, but Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter foresees a new slim Xbox 360 hardware configuration before 2011 rolls around. More specifically he thinks that the new slim version will feature a 250GB hard drive with Project Natal bundled with it, without any price reduction or increase.

That means you would be getting the bundle for the $299 price point. Unless of course, Sony lowers the price of the PS3. Then it may go down to compete with Sony.

Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on November 11th, 2009

Project Natal shipping in November 2010: 14 Games, under $80?Looks like someone from a respected UK gaming publisher may have outed some Project Natal launch plans early, which come from closed-door Microsoft meetings in the UK . The information says that Microsoft will be manufacturing 5 million Natals for a worldwide launch in November 2010. Some are standalone, some in 360 bundles.

Natal will apparently cost anywhere from $50-$80 with 14 games included. The price is certainly in the ballpark and doesn’t surprise us. But it’s all just rumor and speculation until Microsoft says it officially.

Project Natal hitting retail shelves in 2010

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on June 18th, 2009

Microsoft announces "Project Natal" motion controller for Xbox 360Up until now, all we knew about Project Natal’s release date was that it wasn’t going to happen in 2009. Now we have word that it will be hitting store shelves in 2010. So says Steve Balmer, Company CEO.

He let word slip during his speech at The Executives Club of Chicago today that the Xbox 360 motion control interface will be coming in 2010. Now that could mean all the way in December of 2010 for all we know, but at least it’s not 2011.

Microsoft to release Project Natal-centric Xbox console next fall?

Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on June 13th, 2009

Microsoft announces "Project Natal" motion controller for Xbox 360According to 1Up, Microsoft is planning to release a new Xbox console this fall that will focus on Project Natal’s motion-sensing technology. Supposedly it will include native Project Natal support and backwards compatibility with Xbox 360 software. It would be released in fall 2010.

We aren’t buying it. It’s too soon for a full console devoted to the new technology. The Xbox 360 has a lot of lifespan left on it’s own. That’s our take anyway.

The device is codenamed “Natal” and will allow for a very wide range of actions by using a group of sensors.

Images of new Xbox 360 dashboard leaked

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on July 15th, 2010

French site Logic-Sunrise has posted shots of what appears to be a new version of the Xbox 360 Dashboard interface. And if you are the skeptical sort, the images have been removed from Logic-Sunrise, replaced by a Microsoft takedown notice. That should make things clearer.

This UI features a “Natal Tuner” application and a “Natal” setup process, which directs requests for help to the @xboxsupport Twitter account.

Microsoft Kinect gets official, has Video Chat

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on June 14th, 2010

Project Natal” has now become Microsoft Kinect. Several demos were shown, like Star Wars and even tiger petting. The Kinect interface to the Dashboard was also shown and a video chat app where you can talk to up to four friends and also share photos.

Nothing on price or date yet, but we can expect a holiday release. Price rumors are as high as $150. Likely it will be cheaper than that since this is a console add-on and not a full console. We will have to wait and see.

There has been no official confirmation, but word is that Microsoft could be ready to unveil an Xbox 360 Slim at E3. Sony has the PlayStation 3 slim after all and they do want to compete.

Let’s not forget that the PlayStation Move and Project Natal motion sensing controllers are just around the corner too. Things are heating up in the console wars. A slim Xbox 360 will be good as long as they don’t remove any important features to do it.

NHL Slapshot comes with Wayne Gretzky approved Wiimote hockey stick

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on June 1st, 2010

Hard to believe a Hockey game hasn’t come bundled with a Wiimote hockey stick until now. This one is even endorsed by Hockey legend Wayne Gretzky himself. The game is EA’s upcoming NHL Slapshot, which comes with the small hockey stick shown above.

The stick holds both the Wiimote and nunchuck and has a foam blade that your TV will thank you for. I almost laughed when I read that Gretzky says that the stick is “very realistic” and “almost like playing in the NHL”. His drive to make money is also very realistic, and almost like playing in the NHL.

PS3 and Xbox 360 to get price cuts this year?

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on May 11th, 2010

Word on the street is that PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 could get some price changes later this year. According to the rumor, Sony could be planning an entry-level £200 (or $295) version of the PS3 that offers a smaller hard drive with a single controller.

While the Microsoft side of the rumor says that it might include the upcoming Natal with the Xbox 360, though there is talk of a possible version of it without Project Natal going for less than £100 ($147). And IF the rumor is true, Nintendo is also looking at a price drop in order to compete with the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3.

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on May 9th, 2010

If you like your clock to look like nature and have a thing for Woodpeckers, here’s a clock for you. It was designed by Natalie Duckett. The Woodpecker Alarm Clock has no clock face to tell the time. Instead it will measure how long you have been asleep and wake you up when you’ve had the right amount.

I don’t need to stinkin woodpecker clock to tell me when I’ve had enough sleep, but hey that’s just me. There are two alarms, one for the evening, telling you when to go to sleep, and one in the morning, telling you when to wake up.
