IGN’s Matt Casamassina spoke with a developer, who he did not name, at GDC about working with Natal. According to Matt’s source, his development team, along with Lionhead Studios and Rare, are struggling to get Natal working properly.
According to the developer the camera isn’t working as promised. In short he says “It’s sh*t.”
The developer said that Lionhead studios and Rare are still trying to get their software ready for launch, but it might not be in its prime condition. “They’re just going to try to make launch and then they’re going to patch everything later.”
Natal is set to launch this fall. If these faults are currently present, hopefully the developers will be able to work something out before launch.
