XBox with Natal in 2010 Q3
Another great news for gaming world. XBox is expecting to launch XBox 360 with natal support in 2010 Q3.
For all who are not familiar with the name NATAL.
Natal is a technology in which camera sensors are used for detecting movements made by users( game players in this case ). Then this is turned to video game play back.So the thing we dont need a controller for controlling the game.
Project Natal according to Microsoft:
Introducing Project Natal, a revolutionary new way to play: no controller required. See a ball? Kick it, hit it, trap it or catch it. If you know how to move your hands, shake your hips or speak you and your friends can jump into the fun — the only experience needed is life experience.
Now if that comes to XBox thats good news right?.
Digitimes Report about this:
Aptina Imaging has been selected as the exclusive supplier for CMOS sensors to be used in Microsoft’s Project Natal motion sensor system that will be bundled with Xbox 360 consoles.
Electronista adds that
“to meet demand for the Xbox 360 game controller, Aptina plans on upping capacity at its fabrication facility in Italy that makes 8-inch wafers and look for a partner in another foundry.”
