That skateboard comment left me laughing for a while.


It's how I feel for the guaruanteed "NATAL fit" that'll come (doing push ups, situps, streches, etc when you could have done if without an entire console).

May be off topic, but with the above being said, I really do have to show one of my previous posts:

 It's the same deal...having the ability to do something, without the actual peripheral



I'm glad he took a shot at that skateboard scanning part. That was the fakest part of the whole video. It scanned just the front and the back, with his fingers in the way, and knew it was a skateboard? How would it know those were wheels instead of sticks coming out of the bottom? Why would you actually have to own a skateboard to play a skateboarding game? Couldn't you just say "skateboard" or use the Minority Report magic to press a skateboard button on the screen? What's the point of scanning objects if you're not going to use them? Waste of money. The scanning won't happen.

1.) It was a skateboard game and you scanned in something with 4 wheels and the basic shape of a skateboard.

2.) They could have been sticks, it doesn't matter, it was only interested in the design and location of the wheels. 

3.) Of course you don't need to own a skateboard, just like you don't need to own a Ferrari to drive one in a racing game. It just lets you scan it in if you want.

4.) The point is that he was able to scan in the basic design of his skateboard and use a skateboard with a similar design in the game. His fingers were in the way because it was just a demonstration, but even that could be easilt fixed by using a spot healing touch tool similar to the one in photoshop.

 

There are a lot of things wrong with the natal video, not sure why you picked the one thing that was actually 100% accurate and possible.



Good news Everyone!

I've invented a device which makes you read this in your head, in my voice!

It just pisses me off when Microsoft makes videos that are all special effects, and then say "Wouldn't it be neat if we could do this in the future?  Maybe we can!  Who knows!  Talk about it and hype it up for a couple years and then we'll see if it's worth the R&D costs to make."  They just did that with their technology of the future movie they made in February, showing all the sci-fi gizmos they claim we'll have in 2019.

But yeah, I guess it could be optional.  I still think it's pretty lame, and would rather stretch it out with an in-game customization tool.



Very funny.....XD



hulu sucks...



PS One/2/p/3slim/Vita owner. I survived the Apocalyps3/Collaps3 and all I got was this lousy signature.


Xbox One: What are you doing Dave?

Heh, just like the moron! He gets paid to mock things that quite frankly, I don't think he understands...so...basically everything. Yes, I greatly dislike Colbert. Not because he's not funny (he is) but because he's an idiot with the brains of a maggot. There, I said it. Anywho, enough of my rant. The vid made me chuckle, so I guess it wasn't a complete waste of my time.

O.T. Steroid, what is up with your "BAM there it is!" who do you think you are? Emeril Lagasse? I'm sorry bro, but Emeril is the man, he could beat up Chuck Norris...he just says "BAM!" and it's over!
O.O.T. Hope I don't get banned for this obese off topic post!
