Natal makes Insomniac yawn
Insomniac Games hasn't been been losing any sleep over Microsoft's motion-sensing Project Natal, arguing against assumptions that the peripheral will revolutionise gaming.
During a panel hosted at the Art Institute of California at Los Angeles, Insomniac staff addressed the question of Project Natal's potential for evolving gameplay and encouraging innovation. The response was a definitive "no."
According to a report by KingPS3, an unnamed company spokesperson disputed the widely held belief that the peripheral will fundamentally change gaming.
Of course, Insomniac has an established relationship with Sony that may factor into this sentiment, particularly given competition with the company's unnamed motion controller set for release this autumn.
