Project Natal (Xbox 360): Microsoft lied to gamers at E3

By Alan Ng - Apr 6, 2010

Some interesting news to bring you now, as Quantic Dream’s David Cage has stated that Microsoft lied to gamers last year, when they showed off the video demo for Project Natal at E3 2009.

As reported from VG247, Cage was talking about certain elements of the ‘sci-fi’ demo that Microsoft showed off last year, adding that it wasn’t right for Microsoft to portray features that gamers will not be close to getting when the final product is released this year.

Maybe he was directly referring to the part where the kid scans his skateboard at home, straight onto the screen at the flash of a ‘gesture’ – what do you think?

Here is a portion of Cage’s rant: “I thought it was a little bit lying to present it that way because it will let [consumers] think that they will [see] something that they are not really close to getting.”

The video is here for your reference. Give us your thoughts on this. Has Microsoft lied to gamers or not?
