Project Natal (Xbox 360): Technical problems before release

By Alan Ng - Apr 7, 2010

We have some worrying details for Xbox 360 owners now, as a list of problems (unconfirmed) has been collected, detailing various technical issues for Project Natal – expected to release later on this year.

According to French site GameBlog, developers have been reporting problems on Project Natal after getting to grips with the developer kits that Microsoft are sending out.

Firstly, developers have been reporting lag issues, some 125ms to be exact. Also, Natal seems to have problems detecting body movement, especially if there is other obstacles in the room in view of the camera.

Further problems include Natal response in low-light conditions, difficulty depending on what clothing you wear, detecting movement of certain areas of the body and more.

Before you all panic, there doesnt appear to be any source on the website, so I wouldnt read too much into this for now.

Still though, it is hardly good reading for Xbox 360 owners. Let us know your thoughts on this.
