Sorry about the Natal false alarm

I’m sure at least four of you would have enjoyed seeing the year old Project Natal demo I promised we’d stream live on the site. Thanks to some delightful assdickery by Microsoft we were told we were first told we wouldn’t be able to show the Natal bar – the thing you see above – on video and then we wouldn’t be able to film the screen. The video, in short, would have been me waving my hands around.

The demo unit we saw was still running the Natal project under Windows – it looked like 7 or some dev version running on an XBox – so it’s clear this project is 1/8 baked, if that. Oh well. Both my XBoxen are RRODed anyway, so it doesn’t really matter.
