Some more Project-Natal related news for you to digest now, as Naughty Dog Co-Founder Jason Rubin has stated that Microsoft’s upcoming motion tech will revolutionize more than just gaming on the Xbox 360.

As reported from VG247, Rubin was speaking in an interview with Game Trailer’s Bonus Round when he made the comments.

He believes that if Microsoft get this right, Natal will help to attract customers who were previously not a fan of video games.

He added: “Putting Natal in the Xbox gives it the opportunity to become a lot more than just a gaming machine… the things you can do outside of gaming justifies buying Natal.”

Hit the nail on the head i think there Jason, I agree. Let us know your thoughts on his comments. Do you think Natal will revolutionize more than gaming on the Xbox 360?

    I can’t get to the VG247 link right now, as I am at work and it is blocked.
    However, is his quote in the actual interview just as vague as it is on here?
    What does Microsoft have to get right?
    What exactly gives it the opportunity to become a lot more than just a gaming machine?
    What things can you do outside of gaming that justifies buying it?
    I mean, I saw the propaganda video a while back that displayed what “could” be possible with Natal, but what real world implemented features justifies saying this thing will revolutionize anything?

      Hi Adam, heres slightly more for you:

      "I think Natal and things like Natal are going to revolutionise more than gaming," he said, adding: "Putting Natal in the Xbox gives it the opportunity to become a lot more than just a gaming machine… the things you can do outside of gaming justifies buying Natal."

      "If Microsoft plays its cards right it can sell far more Xbox's … to people who don't buy games."
