Forums - Sales Discussion - Natal will put 360 on top for the rest of the generation

If the week Natal launches is the week after the next generation starts, then sure.

about the hype on Natal :

people have to realize it is REALLY far from the casual crowd right now
but, to defend Natal, we are also far from the release date meaning it is expected that NO one outside game/tech lovers know it ...



Time to Work !

If you want a company to fail simply because you like another better, then yes that is sad.  While I like coke better than pepsi I still don't want either of them to stop making their product or go bankrupt.  Same as the ps3/wii/xbox.

 

As for the topic, I will agree with it as long as the Natal is bundled, and  is under $99 with some basic software included for those of us who have to purchase seperately.


1/ I never said I wanted them to go bankrupt
2/ I dont understand how everybody can support whatever they want but how I can't say I prefer Sony over MS and so that I would rather see the 360 fail over the PS3
3/ whatever, that doesn't change what I think about Natal : very good potential, need good price + catchy game concept ... wait and see

4/ the only sad thing are people making bullshit prediction about Natal without knowing anything REAL from it .... that is sad ...

I pretty much agree with this.  I'm bullish on Natal largely off Microsoft's track record, they've really become masters at dealing with and manipulating the industry media.  I don't think it'll come close to Wii, but it'll probably help Microsoft regain their position post-slim.



if natal succeeds, all hardcore gamers will buy a ps3 instead, but... yeah, it will happen

Having the casual mainstream audience didn't keep the hardcore from buying PS2s... it also didn't drive them to PSP over DS.

Nah, people have both consoles. Im not gonna trafe my POS 360 in lol.



Natal won't succeed with the 360, but will end up being a natural interface device that no one will ever doubt come 20 years.



Squilliam: On Vgcharts its a commonly accepted practice to twist the bounds of plausibility in order to support your argument or agenda so I think its pretty cool that this gives me the precedent to say whatever I damn well please.

I dont think so...



natal will only produce casual games. it will sell mainly to existing 360 oweners, will boost console sales for 2-3 months - not for the rest of the generation.
