Project Natal project director Alex Kipman revealed to Eurogamer that there will be “hardcore, triple-A” games for the Microsoft’s motion cam.

“We’ll have games that are specifically designed to work only with Natal – not just arcadey games, but real, hardcore, triple-A titles,” said Kipman.

“Then you’ll have some games that are essentially a hybrid – games that work both with the controller and with Natal.

“Why is that interesting? Think about a first-person shooter where I’m using the controller but I’m doing facial tracking by just moving around and looking round corners.”

Kipman also hinted at co-op play -one person holding the controller, the other, using the camera: “Or you could have a hardcore gamer like me playing a game with a controller, while a non-hardcore person sitting next to me enjoys the experience by playing with Natal,” he explained.

“I could be having my Halo experience with the controller and the friend next to me, who’s not a hardcore gamer, could be throwing grenades or driving the Warthog or doing any number of things with Natal.”
