LA Times gets pre-E3 look at Natal

Friday, 11th June 2010 20:25 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Microsoft gave the LA Times a pre-E3 look at some of its Natal titles recently, and while the games were described as “tech demos”, the author of the post believes each will be made into a full game at some point.

According to the article, Ricochet Rocket – demoed at E3 last year – was shown. Ball slapping and all. Another was River Rush, also seen before.

The other two are new to the list: Living Statue and Obstacle Course.

Living Statue was described as more of a tool, which allows users to create singing and dancing videos with their XBL Avatars and share the results with other XBL users.

Obstacle Course contains a “series of levels” filled with obstacles of “what you would find at a summer camp.”

The article also states that a dozen games from third-party publishers will be revealed for Natal Monday and Tuesday at E3.

Here’s the LA Times post via IGN.

Pat and Nathan will be at Microsoft’s press events next week. Be sure to stick with us for coverage.

    If you remove the quote at the end of the link, it works fine. Hope that helps someone find it.

    “Tech demo” made into a “full game” sounds pretty much like the experience I expected from Natal.
