Nintendo’s E3 2009 Stuff

Ok, I kinda missed E3.  (I was busy!)  but from what I understand, Nintendo made 3 big Wii announcements.  Metroid: Other M, Super Mario Galaxy 2, and New Super Mario Brothers Wii.  Mr Miyamoto also annouced a new Zelda game for the Wii in a private confrence.  So here are the trailers for the three new games, and a link to some concept art for the new Zelda Game.  (and yes, I took the link right from Earl’s site…don’t judge me…)

    Microsoft has been secretly developing technology that lets people play videogames using natural body movements instead of handheld controllers.

    The US software giant behind Xbox 360 videogame consoles revealed a prototype of a project codenamed ”Natal,” a system that combines cameras and voice and face recognition software to recognize people and their actions.

    ”The gamer in me went out of my mind when I got to be interactive with this,” director Steven Spielberg said during a Microsoft press conference on the eve of a major E3 videogame industry show in Los Angeles.

    ”I got a feeling I was in a historic moment. What Microsoft is doing isn’t reinventing the wheel; this is about no wheel at all.”

    Natal lets people play driving games by simply moving hands as if turning a car steering wheel. In-game characters in boxing, skateboard, football and other sports titles mimic the body movements of real players.

    The system scans faces and voices to determine who is playing.

    Xbox 360 consoles equipped with Natal will be able to respond to spoken commands for actions such as playing movies or connecting online with friends for video chats.

    An expected completion date was not disclosed, but Microsoft yesterday released a software kit for videogame makers interested in designing titles to take advantage of Natal’s capabilities.

    ”This is a landmark in computer entertainment. This is true technology that science fiction has not even written about and this works today,” said British videogame icon Peter Molyneux, chief of Lionhead Studios.

    Yea that’s pretty much just a sum-up of Natal.
