Don’t panic, though, Natal-based racing fans. The motion-sensing system and traditional control aspects could very well collide to form a beautiful melange of car-based gaming simulation inputs.

“That’s not to say that I don’t think you could do some really cool things, particularly with Natal, which can function as additional control over and above the controller in racing games,” Fulton added.
