Remember that awesome Milo and Kate demo Microsoft unveiled at last year’s E3 to demonstrate just what their motion control accessory (then titled Natal) was about? Yeah, well, apparently, it’s nothing more than a tech demo. It never was, and never will be, a full blown retail game.
So says head of the Xbox department at Microsoft, Aaron Greenberg. “Last year we unveiled the Project Natal technology, we showed a bunch of technology demos as part of that,” Greenberg told TV show Good Game. “And obviously [Milo] is a technology demo that continues to exist, but right now it’s not a game that we’re planning to bring to market.”
That kind of pisses me off because as recently as last month, Lionhead kingpin Peter Molyneux was maintaining that it was a full blown retail game still under development.
What adds to the confusion is the fact that apparently, Molyneux is all set to demonstrate a newer version of the ‘game’ at a TEDGlobal seminar next month, which he has claimed will be ten times better than the E3 2009 tech demo was.
Well, that sucks. Not that I care two hoots about Kinect and anything to do with it anymore anyway.
