Bethesda production director Ashley Cheng has said in one of his blog post that Project Natal is ‘wasted on games’. He said that Microsoft should make Natal as an open source project just like what Apple has done with its i-apps, so that anyone can get in and make games for it. Project Natal made jaws dropped when it was shown at E3 2009.
“Seeing it in action, I was totally blown away by it,” he said.
“It seems wasted on games, really. Microsoft should open the NATAL API up like Apple does with the iphone/ipad. Let anyone make a NATAL “app.” I bet someone makes a killer app that has nothing to do with gaming.”
