Bethseda dev: Natal “wasted on games”

Posted in Bethesda, Project Natal, Xbox 360 with tags on May 20, 2010 by James Love

Bethseda developer Ashley Cheng has written on his blog that he believes Project Natal “seems wasted on games.”

Cheng went on to say that “Microsoft should open the Natal API up like Apple does with the iPhone/iPad” and by letting anyone make an app for Natal he can see “a killer app that has nothing to do with gaming” coming from it.

Microsoft Saudi marketing manager Syed Bilal Tariq earlier announced that Natal would see an October release.

By Jonathan Cullen.

It’s that time of year, folks.

The time where we sort the men from the boys, the wheat from the chaff and find out which is better: Coke or Pepsi? Daddy or Chips? But in our case, Uncharted 2 or Modern Warfare 2.

These are just two of the game that are in the running for Game of the Year 2009, alongside Batman: Arkham Asylum and Street Fighter IV.

We do have other awards too though, you know. So, let’s not waste any other time, and let’s get cracking. All of the awards are below.
