Microsoft packed Natal up and brought it to TGS 09 to show it off.
Past the break, there is a video of Microsoft director Kudo Tsunoda demoing Ricochet and Burnout Paradise for a local news show.
GameSetWatch, who posted the video, says for you to make sure to at least watch the bit at 03:35 when “Tsunoda slowly claps with the Japanese host, cheering, ‘Yes, very good for you. I’m so happy,’ before turning to flash a cheesy smile and give a thumbs up.”
How could you NOT watch knowing that?

Criterion’s Alex Ward just tweeted that Grasshopper legend Suda51 is a Burnout Paradise mentalist.
“Suda51 came here for the day a few weeks ago,” said the dev boss.

If you’re really good at Burnout Paradise – and by “really good” we mean you’re able to complete the 500 online freeburn challenges that includes everything from the original game, and the ones in the in the Cagney update, the Bikes Pack and all the challenges on Big Surf Island – you’ll be reward with a sexy-looking, diamond-branded P12 motor (pictured above).
We know right now we’ll never ever get that car due to sheer laziness, but if you’ve got what it takes, then give it a shot.

Need for Speed: Shift producer Jesse Abney would like to work with Criterion on Need for Speed projects.
“You know, Criterion’s got a great heritage in racing games, and I think they would be a great team to work with on that stuff, certainly from a personal opinion,” he said, talking in London last week.
“There’s always question about how does Burnout exist, and vice versa. We’ll be hoping for the best in the future.”
Criterion, as you’re all well aware, has been beavering away on Burnout Paradise DLC for the past year. Future projects are unannounced.
Need for Speed: Shift releases for PC, PS3, 360 and PSP this autumn.
