Extended thoughts on Natal (Xbox Fluid)

Microsoft’s Project Natal. (AKA. Fluid…better AKA Thwiisixty) really seemed to impress the E3 crowds. probably because the demo video seemed too good to be true.

MS’s scope on this seems pretty ambitious. filled with all sorts of high tech circuitry, sensors, and it’s own CPU. how much will this little thing cost you?. nobody knows. with the original camera costing 40 bucks upon release, and really. That was just a camera.

Hell, that all just sounds expensive doesn’t it? So, lets say it comes out at 80 bucks. to me that seems about right.
