Traveller's Tales Director: Lag And Lack Of Buttons Will Be Natal's Undoing

Most gamers and game developers are awaiting the release of Microsoft's Project Natal with anticipation, but Traveller's Tales (Lego Batman, Lego Star Wars) director Jon Burton isn't one of them.

"I was actually more impressed with Sony's motion capture solution than Microsoft's Natal," Burton said. "[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."

Microsoft's demonstrations of Natal during this year's E3 have had a small but noticeable lag, but they weren't done on the final retail version of the game.

"Sony's solution will be cheap, accurate and will put buttons at your fingertips, meaning everything from action adventures to FPSes can be handled with the same input," he concluded.
