Natal Hit By Lag Issues?

Traveller’s Tales director Jon Burton Says Natal less impressive than Sony’s GEM

December 18 – According to Jon Burton, the director of Traveller’s Tales, Microsoft’s controllerless Natal interface system might be affected by lag issues, which could adversely affect its adaptability for different gaming genres.

In an interview with Develop, Burton claimed that after spending time using the system, he was “actually more impressed with Sony’s motion capture solution than Microsoft’s Natal.”

He added that Natal is “exceedingly clever, but the lag on the input and lack of physical buttons is really going to restrict the kind of games that can be done with it.”

Burton fears that this lag will mean that Natal will fall short of the accuracy and precision offered by current-generation control devices.
